We have stayed at Hosteria La Gondola twice now (once back in March of 2017, and then just recently in January 2018). We went back, because we loved our first experience there earlier this year. This place is the definition of a relaxed beach town lodging. The amenities are simple and sparse, but that is exactly what makes it a charming getaway. If you are expecting an upscale resort experience, this is not the place for you. But if you wish to forget about the outside world for a while, and check all your worries at the gate, then book now! The property sits right on the beach and consists of a few stand alone buildings and cabins. My personal favorite are the 2 cabins that have a screened in porch area with hammocks hanging in them. Again, the rooms are super basic, but they

We only wanted a beach break for a week...... Ended up staying for nearly 7 and came close to dropping out completely. I did read the duff review... Yes living on an undeveloped world class surf beach does throw up some little idiosyncratic problems. For some. But not what the place is about. A disappointing start to my day came in the form of not seeing a Whale breaching over breakfast or only half a dozen squadrons of Pelicans cruising the surf break. The same feel as Ko Samui had 20 years ago before they covered it in concrete. Please stay away from the place as I want it for myself.

If you are visiting Montañita, La Gondola is the best place to stay!! We were scheduled to stay for 2 nights and ended up staying for 10 nights - we loved it that much. The bungalows/rooms & bar/restaurant are all directly on the beach; the rooms are all super comfortable with AC; and the staff & visitors are all just amazing people. It's hard to describe in words how magical this place is - don't miss out on staying here!! :)

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!!
