Last time i even tried to stay at this hotel, the experience was absolutely negative. I had called in advance to make sure i had an accommodation secured at this place and when i finally got there my room had been sold (during peak season ) leaving me without a place to stay.

The previous owners were much better at managing this property, as i had gone before and had a good stay. Nowadays, definitely not a place i will even try to contact again.

After 3 days in Montañita, I understood why so many people don't want to leave this place, its magic, beautiful beaches, and mountains are only 5 minutes away. Now, The Barranca did offer a beautiful view from the top of the hotel, breakfast was out of this world and the attention from the owner & his staff was numero 1. I'll be there again this year, in fact my wife wants to stay at this hotel for at least a week.

We looked at practically every place in town and La Punta and this place was the best. All the other places in the same price range had rooms half the size and were not nearly as cute. The hotel keepers at the time (5/2010), Lalo and Mericela and her young son Erik, were amazing. They were super friendly and helpful.

By American standards, this is probably like a 2.5 star hotel. But by Montanita standards, it is heads over all others in size, decor, and friendliness of staff. So all my rating are based on comparison to Montanita standards.

We were able to negotiate $15/per person per night for 3 weeks and were able to use their kitchen as well. Since the owner resides in the states, we were able to pay by traveler's check at the end of our stay. It is also really quite and peaceful, unlike the hotels in the middle of town which were blasted with music all night long. But it is close enough to walk to town when you want to party.

The barranca hotel, Is a very nice quiet place to stay during visit to montañita. Montañita is a great hippie beach place located in the "ruta del sol" in the coast of Ecuador. In the days montañita is a paradise for surfers and has a great relaxing beach for the regular tourist. At night you can found a lot of choices for a great dinner like the pizza and "empanadas" and later a place to dance and drink some delicious cocktels with a great party environment. If you like me and later you want to sleep in a cozy quiet hotel, then you have to go to Barranca is located 5 minutes from the center and party loud montañita. I prefer the upside rooms. The rooms are very cozy, with private bathroom, hot water and direct tv. The price is fair and the free breakfast is great to start the day. Also have a parking lot. I sure recommend it to other traveler´s who wants to visit a great place like montañita.

Room Tip: Uphill room,
