We stayed for two nights, during off season. The room was basic but comfortable. We had a nice view of the pool and beach. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. Breakfast was good with made to order omelettes, fresh fruit and bread. Our dinners were very good as well. The only issue we ran into was wine only...

It's a perfect place if you look for calm place, far away from noise of discos with pool, free parking. Be careful with type of room you choose. Preferably is deluxe rooms and royal suits. These are just remodeled.

Beautiful property in a fantastic location at the end of the beach, close enough to walk to town in a few minutes, but far enough away from the consistent rave music that plays loudly in the center of town. Our room was very clean and well laid out. We had large balcony as well, from which we could watch some...

Stayed here for three nights over Christmas. Positives: Location is the best! It is nice to be down at the quiet end of the beach. You are not bothered by the constant late night beat you would hear if you were closer to town. Very nice staff, especially Johnnie the bartender (who make some of the best bloody marys and...

My partner and I booked Baja Montanita as it was the last part of our trip to Ecuador and we wanted to 'treat ourselves' to a nice, private room so we paid a little more. After a very long travel day of getting to Montanita, we were extremely disappointed when we got to our room. We were put in Room...

We got a two Bedroom unit with one bathroom and a balcony overlooking the beach. View was great but room was sparsely furnished with bed, night stand and closet unit with drawers beneath. Bathroom had a leaky toilet and sink didn't drain and not very clean. There was a musty smell so they sprayed something to make it a little...
