“Cute little place”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Cute little place with clean, large rooms. The pool was really nice, right in front of the rooms. The location is much better than staying downtown Montanita, where it is crowded and noisy. Swiss Point is still only a 5 minute walk to town and even less to the beach. Nice and quiet at night. Internet may be difficult to hook up to, but that is true in the general area. The breakfasts were good but did not work out well for our schedule since are only served between 9 and 11. Would probably work for most people.

Room Tip: Any room is good in this little place.

Breakfasts are amazing! Location quiet yet close to all the fun. Internet is hit or miss as is in all of Ecuador. This place felt very comfortable and safe. Our eleven-year-old loved it!

We really can't say enough about Swiss Point.... our host Sylvia was "FANTASTIC", she makes
sure your stay is great. The breakfasts are a real gourmet treat!! The rooms are immaculate....
cleaned daily. The beach is walking distance..... and so is the town. We plan to return to Montanita
one day, and we wouldn't stay any where else, so if your "Holiday" plans include Montanita, I would highly recommend Swiss Point.

Room Tip: all rooms are great

Without wanting to repeat the previous reviews, the place is nice, rooms clean with air con and the pool is a bonus. Breakfast is out of this world and is actually brunch. Location is good - walking distance to the action but far enough away to get some sleep. But hey, you don't go to Montanita to sleep!
What really impressed me was the hospitality of the owners. They really love what they are doing and are genuinely nice people. I stayed there during a big surf competition. Despite the whole town being completely booked out (hundreds sleeping on the beach), they kept their prices the same, whereas other less scrupulous establishments were tripling theirs!
Very good value for money and highly recommended.

My wife and I booked a room for 2 nights at SwissPoint, but we ended up staying a full week. Sylvia and her staff made our stay delightful. The rooms are immaculate with A/C and comfortable beds. The crystal clean swimming pool was also a big plus. The location is perfect. Far enough away from the noise of Montanita, but close enough where it's a short walk to the beach or the heart of the action. We strongly suggest including breakfast with your reservations. Of the 8 days we were there, Sylvia cooked and surprised us with something different every day. And every meal was absolutely delicious. Sylvia has a wealth of knowledge of Ecuador and was more than happy to answer any questions we had. As far as value, I challenge anyone to find something better in Montanita.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a 1st floor room.

Best place to stay, my husband and I stayed here in Feb 2012 for 4 days and returned again for another 4 days. The location is perfect, a 2-3 minute walk to town or the beach but far enough away that you don't hear the music that plays til 4:00am. The owners are fabulous, the rooms are spotless with air conditioning and direct tv, rooms are cleaned daily and the staff is wonderful. The rooms surround a spotlessly clean pool and all this we paid $40/night. If available the best rooms are the King Rooms on the ground level (there are 8 rooms total. I would rate this place as excellent and wouldn,t hesitate to recommend it.

Room Tip: King Room on the ground level would be the top pick

Montanita is an incredible town, but being a party place if you stay in the centre it can be difficult to get any sleep. Swisspoint is super close to town, but far enough away that it's really quiet. Our multi-lingual hosts were incredibly helpful, and the breakfasts are amazing (definately not your typical Ecuadorian fare). Our private room was huge, with an air-conditioning that actually cooled the room - unlike many in our South America travels and was impeccably clean. We wish we could have stayed longer, and we'll definately come back to Swisspoint for our next trip to Montanita!
