I came to la Gondola in Montañita, with my mother and my sister, we had an amazing time, the hotel was very comfortable and cozy! The staff was welcoming and friendly and made new friends with the other hotel guests. The hotel is very close to town ,walking distance, and we had the beach to ourselves.
Sergio the owner made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the rest of the staff was equally stellar. Location was just far away enough from town to get a great nights sleep, but easy to get to the city center as well. The restaurant/bar on premises il Pirata was incredible, the chef a master, and the bartender a pleasure. La Gondola is the ONLY place I'll ever stay in Montañita!!
I spent 1 night here with my boyfriend and some cousins. We had an amazing time and wish we could have stayed longer! Sergio and his staff were incredibly welcoming! There were tons of really sweet dogs on property too. In the morning we enjoyed a nice family style breakfast, the meal included fresh fruit, eggs and coffee. My favorite memory was playing cards outdoors with the sound of waves rolling in the background. Could really see myself staying here for a month if my schedule allowed it but will be coming back in April 2017!
Quiet, relaxing and close enough to town to get some excitement. Breakfast was good and staff treated us well. Lots of hot water, fluffy towels and everything in the room worked. There is a small bar on this property if you want to have a quiet drink, owner was friendly enough that we played board games with him and he let us win....
My wife and I stayed at La Gondola for 1 week and loved it. The owner Sergio is a great guy. Very accommodating and welcoming. We had an immediate connection to this hostel and its thanks to him and the family who run it. I can't recommend this hosteria more. We met other couples, family's and singles staying here. Just steps from the beach (like 5!) and a 5-10 minute walk to the town center. The bar on site, Mar Arena, has a great atmosphere. The owner Sergio (same name different guy) is an incredible chef and really makes you feel welcome. This place is the trifecta! Great rooms, great bar, great beach!!!
