“Solid choice”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We stayed for three nights here and on the whole, we were satisfied (particularly when compared to some of the other places to stay in the town, which leave a lot to be desired). The rooms were clean, with a TV and good bathroom. There is also a pool area and some sunloungers for when you are feeling too lazy for the 3/4 min stroll to the beach, across the road. We only had two minor grumbles; firstly, the place feels a little soul-less, which I think has a lot to do with there being no breakfast offered (or meals at other times of day) which leaves the pool area, the only communal space, feeling deserted. The other is the noise from the road, which can be significant in the early mornings with big lorries and buses passing by. All in all, a solid choice.

Always our home in Montanita. Great location on the edge of town well away from the party scene in Montanita. Walk to everything the beach is just two blocks. Relaxing pool. Very Clean. Have stayed here over the last 5 years.

I have stayed at the Swisspoint Hotel in Montanita every year for 7 years now. Marcello, the owner, is an excellent fellow and very supportive of whatever we want to do. Main points: (1) clean rooms where everything works (2) just on the outskirts of town for peace and quiet (3) 2 minute walk to the beach (4) air conditioning (5) Price: $25 per person per night cant be beat (6) rapid and efficient email contact and response from Marcello for reservations and special requests. Minor things that might be improved: a comfortable lounging chair in the room. Next year my wife and I are staying 2 weeks.

I have stayed here many weeks in the past 3 years and will continue to do so. The rooms and buildings are relatively new and clean and located far enough from the party scene to facilitate sleeping at night. A couple of tiendas are a few steps away and getting to the beach or the shops and dining is only a few minutes walk away. If you want to cool off after walking around in the equatorial sun just turn on your air conditioner or take a dip in their pool. Marcel, the owner, is a very nice and helpful guy and he speaks Spanish, English, and German (Swiss version). I stay for most of the 90 days allowed me on my passport and have stayed at 20+ hostals and hotels in Ecuador and Swisspoint rates among the best.

Stayed here in march for a week.recommended by a friend ,good call, swiss point is close to all the action yet far enough away to get good rest peacefully. Double rooms are good size, clean and well maintained.very nice in ground pole was wonderful. Courtyard area was very private and secluded.Marcel the owner spoke English well and addressed any issue that came up, all small.staff was courteous,effectient.I understand the swiss point is for sale. The new owner should utilize the area currently there for breakfast ,lunch,etc...as none are served now.all in all this was a good choice and I would definetly stay again.

Room Tip: Only stayed in double , all seem to be the same.

Just back from 3 weeks up and down the coast of Ecuador and without a doubt this was the best place we stayed on the coast.

Rooms are clean with comfy beds and the location is just far enough away from the party scene that a good night's sleep is easy to have.

The owner - Sylvia - could not be a more gracious host - and her staff is excellent.
The grounds and pool are kept spotless and any issues are addressed promptly (our water heater went bad and they went and bought and installed a new one within hours).

Also very easy to book thru their website and they answer email quickly.

Will definitely stay here again next time in Montanita.
