Villa de Los Suenos
Ranked #1 of 2 La Entrada B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 26, 2013

My wife and I stayed one night here and really enjoyed it. With the exception of a shared balcony (outdoor privacy would have been preferable), the place is very well laid out. For those of us with fair skin, you can enjoy the view all day in the shade until about 1-2 hours before sunset when the sunrays are not so hot. Marsh and Shell are great hosts. As indicated by the title, this is a stunning location to enjoy panoramic views of the Pacific coast.

We stayed at several different hotels while traveling up the coast in Ecuador. Nothing compared to our stay at Villa de Los Suenos. I wish we had stayed there longer! The property is stunning and the rooms were very clean, air conditioning, excellent wifi with balconies and views of the ocean. The grounds were welll manicured with people constanly working on maintaining the outside areas.Shell and Marsha were so nice and friendly and were willing to answer all our hundreds of questions. We enjoyed walking on the beach accompanied by their Lab "Chocolate" who is so sweet. The pool and hot tub have a spectacular view overlooking the ocean. We had a very relaxing stay! The breakfast in the morning was delicious, especially the carrot cake that came from a local bakery. Next time we travel to Ecuador, we will be staying at Villa de Los Suenos!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice.

I just got back from my second visit to Villa de Los Suenos. It is a great place to relax, with a wonderful beach for walking. The American owners really make you feel welcome and take care of anything you may need. The main building has four one-bedroom units which are just one year old and very well built. The balconies face the beach, so you can hear the surf at all times. I highly recommend a stay here.

When is the last time you travelled and your room and grounds looked even better than the pictures? Villa de Los Suenos exceeded all of our expectations. We spent 3 weeks in Ecuador, and the last half of our trip at VLS. We were looking for a quiet, relaxed, stress free environment that we could base our daily excursions up the coast from. We stayed on the second floor - comfy king size bed, couch area, fridge, spacious bathroom with a huge balcony shared with 1 other room. The pool and hot tub are even better than the photos on the VLS site, which is amazing. We had a tour of all the rooms, and they are all fabulous.
Hosts Shel and Marsha provided yummy breakfast with eggs cooked to order, tons of fruit and fresh pastry, and freshly squeezed juice. Yummy!!
Shel and Marsha suggested restaurants and activities in nearby Montanita (don't miss zip lining!), arranged surf lessons, and even invited us to dinner with some other guests at a nearby restaurant. They truely go above and beyond.
We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, grounds, and walks on the beach that is just outside the gate. We borrowed boogy boards to play in the ocean just outside VLS, and enjoyed the swimming too.
We cancelled reservations elewhere to extend our stay until the very last minute possible. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I were looking for a place to vacation absolutely stress free. Villa de los Suenos has 4 suites and cottage on the beach, no tv blaring, no crowds to deal with and a soft gentle breeze from the ocean 24/7. Breakfast includes fresh bakery, fruits, juices and, for me, eggs over easy, and carrot cake washed down with some good hot coffee in big mugs. This well-planned B&B is just 1-1/2 years old. Each floor includes comfortable rooms with terraces overlooking the water. There is a beautiful infinity pool with slide and hottub between the building and the clean, uncrowded beach. Senora Betty just down the street will serve you an almuerzo (lunch) at her small restaurant and also deliver dinner to your room if you wish. Dessert from the bakery across the street from her is not to be missed. Finally, we wanted for nothing at the villa and were cared for by the staff and owners Shel and Marsha and their trusty sidekick CHOCOLATE a loving Lab who entertained us while we were there. You will enjoy this Ecuadorean gem, but, please, keep it a secret between us!!

I almost hate to share our new jewel with the rest of the world, but we can't be there all the time, so others really should have a chance to see and experience this marvelous place.

My wife and I were there for most of 3 weeks, and hated having to leave at the end of our stay.

The facilities are immaculate. The rooms are large, airy, have magnificent views of the Pacific, and the coastline. The pool and palapa area is so inviting and comfortable I could have spent all my time in Ecuador there but for the inevitable errands that took us away from the villa.

But the real feature of the establishment that makes it stand out is the hospitality offered by the owners, Marsha and Shell. They provided so much more than required of them as proprietors of a hotel or B&B, that I doubt I will ever find worthy comparisons in our future travels.

Find a way to go and stay here for a few days or weeks, you will not regret it!

Went with some friends who had stayed here before and had recommended it. Everything looked great on their website and was exactly the same in person; beautiful infinity pool right on the ocean, nice rooms and grounds. We stayed on the 2nd floor and our large balcony faced the ocean with a comfy hammock for relaxing. Marsha and Shell were great hosts and suggested many places for us to check out, including mora pie, which was delicious. Will definitely be going back to the "Villa of Dreams".
