I stayed here with my friends for a week in semana santa it was amazing. Mary and Guillermo are the best they took care of us very well and always the best breakfast. The best part of it all was having a beach view at all times and hanging out with James and his friends at LA PLAYA DE JAMES. This bar is the perfect hangout and you get to meet a lot of people from everywhere. James cooks great food and also very good burgers plus the great attention. By far it was the perfect vacation very far away from all the fuzz and noise in montañita but if this is what you seek it is only a 10 minute walk away.

I adore this place, it is a set of bungalows situated just in front of the beach, it is very clean and it has all commodities you need (No TV) , it has its own pub "Toda la Vida" managed by James, a very nice Canadian guy who makes a wonderful and tasty BBQ every night (No Sundays, you can use the grill for your own BBQ), and the people who comes here makes you feel that you are in Honolulu not in Ecuador, it is a magical place. The staff is very nice (Mary, Guillermo and their granddaughter) and they are aware to take care of your needs every moment. The breakfast is simple but delicious (bread, eggs, coffee and juice). You have a bunch of hamacas and place to be relaxed and read, practice yoga or playing table or card games. It is close to the craziness of the town but no

Situated in front of the Beach (in the south of the town, where the waves aren't good for surfing). Has HOT water and a shared kitchen. The common areas are nice. far away from the noice of the party. It's 6 blocks from the downtown (the las three blocks you'll feel that you are in a shanty town....) eventhough the place is pretty safe (I guess). Half of the cabins have air conditioning, the other half have fans. The beach in that area is far away from the "party" is quiet. The breakfast it's ok (eggs, croissants, juice, coffee), isn't too big. To conclude I would recommend it, the cabins are beauty, sleeping with the sound of waves is the best way to sleep. If you are going to surf it's far away from the point. The weather in January-February it's cloudy rainy !!!!!!! :( It's

La Gondola was a great place to stay. Maria and Guillermo treated us like family and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Far enough away for peace and quite, but close enough to walk to the party and if you don't want to walk anywhere walk to the beach and have a drink with James at the bar.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing hostal (some private cabanas) with hot water, clean sheets and a comfy bed with breakfast included, that is just a few minutes walk from the center of all the action in Montanita, and at an economical price, look no further than the Hosteria La Gondola, run by a nice young Ecuadorian man named Sergio. There are seven different cabanas, some holding two rooms, with the ocean less than 100 feet away. The property is completely surrounded by a fence, and is also pet-friendly, There is also a full time caretaker and his wife on the property at all times. There is a cabana with hammocks underneath just perfect for lounging the day away, after a late night in Montanita. And to top it all off there is a brand new cabanna bar run by a
