Not sure what others are offering in Montanita? Baja is not offering much though. We only spent one night and felt badly ripped off. The room that we paid $170 for was "Bare Bones" at best. There were two rooms left we were told. A royal suite and the superior ocean view. We chose the latter as it was cheaper but still crazy expensive compared to traveling around Ecuador. The room did have a decent shower I will give it that. No table to put suitcases on, no bedside lamps?? Room floor was dirty. The bed was clean. Good there. Thousands of ants in the room as well as various bugs. The pool was slippery, full of sand. There was no where on the property to wash beach sand off your feet so therefore impossible to keep pool clean. The grounds were "natural". All I mean is that they never spent a dollar to make it nice. It was sandy and dirty everywhere. There was lots of construction going on so it may be better in the future but I doubt it as the place is old and run down. The beach bar has a terrific location to watch surfers however it was empty. We can only guess that was because drinks are so over priced. We walked 100' to the next bar and enjoyed well made drinks, viewed evening surfing and had a good time for little money spent. All in all we left the Baja feeling robbed of our money. The staff were actually quite nice that we had dealings with. Not sure what the owners think they have that they think they can charge these kind of prices but i guess we were silly enough to pay? Overall, bare bones for 5 star price!
