10.0 Excellent
Pros: I cannot recommend this place enough:) its clean with comfortable beds. Nice kitchen and common area outside with hammocks and lockers. The place is away from the noise of montanita so you can sleep and party if you want but they have bikes you can borrow for running errands or go to a restaurant. the owners daniel and Monica and there daughter Leticia(jungle baby) so cute are so nice and always wanting to help and talk to you and have genuine interest in your wellbeing and the comfort of your stay. They keep cheap beer in the fridge and offer a breakfast for $3.50. You can also get your tour to Isla de la plata from here which is a bonus. Really is a great place to stay for a relaxed time in montanita. :)
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Monika and Daniel are such a lovely couple and always work hard to make guests feel comfortable. They would answer any questions kindly and provide lots of advices and help. If there were unavoidable circumstances like power failures or construction they remained polite and would look after us. I can recommend this hostel for anyone who's looking for a peaceful oasis within this beautiful yet hectic area!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very quiet tranquil location away from party. Great kitchen facilities (blender!), good WiFi, and super friendly hosts. We received a great introduction to the town from Monika including a big list of food recommendations. You can also order organic fruit and veges through Monika which get delivered to the hostel most days and are cheaper than buying fruit and veges in town. All in all a great stay. We really enjoyed it :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet, comfortable, owners and staff were super nice. Away from the noise of the center of Montanita, but not a far walk at all. Nice fan in the room, hot shower. Very relaxing!
Cons: We did not stay long enough.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Monica and her adorable daughter made us feel incredibly welcome, a home away from home! We didn’t want to leave. The hostel is a tucked away behind the town in a peaceful, leafy environment. The rooms were spacious, mosquito free and with a strong fan. Lovely social areas and a great kitchen too! Monica was extremely helpful and organised two brilliant day trips for us - one of which we saw a humpback whale and swam with turtles! And she sorted our transport for the next leg of our journey and gave us hostel recommendation. One of our absolute favourite hostels on our 5 month trip! Thank you for having us! Robyn & James xxxx
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The owners were very friendly and helped us with everything. We get the chance to camp in their beautiful garden for another night. They also organized us an underwater camera, because mine was broken. Our room was totally clean, the atmosphere was familiar. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you very much! :-)

9.5 Excellent
Pros: A little slice of paradise in the busy town on Montanita! I loved the location (because it was a little outside of town but still super quick to get to the main restaurants etc) and the access to the beach at the back of the property was awesome. The hammocks outside the room were an lovely touch and I spent a lot of time here after the beach every evening! My double room was a great size, modern and equipped with AC and a fan.
Cons: I stayed for 5 nights and my room wasn't cleaned once! I also had to ask for a fresh towel after 3 days so I would have liked the staff to be more proactive and attentive in this way. Seems if you want your room to be cleaned you need to ask.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The place is amazing, the garden great. The outside kitchen is a big plus, and the dogs are always happy to give their love.
Cons: If you don't speak Spanish, it can be a bit hard to communicate with the housekeepers. Don't worry if Ramon act a bit grumpy, that is just his style. However, Gloria is super sweet and friendly.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location right by the beach, pool, kitchen facilities, rooms were immaculate, air con, hammocks, strong wifi. Ticks all the boxes! Best place we’ve stayed in Ecuador!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: 1. Perfect location and territory. Very green area with lots of places to chill and relax. 2. It's just a couple of minutes from the beach. 3. Gloria and Ramon are very kind and hospitable. 4. Great that they have air conditioning.
Cons: 1. The was an electricity cut and almost half a day it hasn't been fixed. While in other parts of the town ot was. We had to remind owners two times about it. 2. The toster isn't working properly. It's a minor thing. I hope they will fix it. 3. As an improvement could be great if they will place every day spirals from mosquitos in shared areas. As there are a lot of mosquitos as the river is close to the hostel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: wonderful location and property. on the beach just a walk through the front gate. private, secure, muy tranquillo. everything just as pictured. wonderful outdoor kitchen and hangout area. pool nice. excellent wi-fi ... worked everyday w/VPN no problems. ramon & gloria are here daily and super sweet. luis and his family were here for the weekend and super chill. this is not a party place, but you can walk 7 minutes into town for that if that is your thing. you hear nothing but the ocean at night due to the private location. i highly recommend if you like to chill, surf and be within walking distance of all the craziness yet not see or hear it from the property. hot showers too, which is nice after an evening surf
Cons: can't think of 1 thing

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location location location! This property has a huge yard that backs right onto the beach, and it’s far enough away from town to not be too lounge at night. Our room was extremely spacious and comfortable. The staff were very nice. Great communal hang out area with hammocks, pool table and big kitchen, and water jug. Muchas gracias!
Cons: The pool wasn’t very clean while we were there but that’s okay since the ocean is so close!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice beachfront rooms, well equipped kitchen
Cons: At Check in they didnt know we were coming but the situation was solved quickly
9.3 Excellent
Pros: This is an excellent place to relax in Montanita - away from the Party Places, but yet only a 5min walk to the town. The garden is beautiful to relax in, with a well equipped outside kitchen and view onto the beach. The room was very comfortable and clean, so was the bathroom. The Wifi worked well, and invited to sit on the Laptop in the outside area or in the hammocks. The beach is a 1min walk behind the garden. (it is not directly at the beach, because theres a riverbed in between) We didn't not have a lot of contact with the staff (they live aside on the property), which was nice, because one could just enjoy the house and it felt like living there. There were two lovely dogs aside - which we didn't mind.
Cons: Montanita doesn't have the best equipped supermarkets - so even though there is a kitchen, it is not that easy to get the best groceries to cook - but not the properties fault ;) Depending on what you are aiming for, I had the feeling one could get locations directly at the beach for less money. The price was still totally fair and everything was what we wanted (a nice quiet beach holiday).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hidden little piece of paradise is perfect walking distance from the busy down down, and has a private gate to the beach. Quiet, clean property and pool, iguanas chillin' under the trees, all the amenities you need to cook, eat and hang out. and relax. Be sure to reserve as there are not many rooms to begin with. Highly recommended.
Cons: It is not easy to find, they have a tiny sign nailed high on a post visible only in one direction. Keep looking, it's well worth it.

Pros: What’s not to love, gorgeous facilities, the free yoga was amazing, breakfasts were to die for especially the French toast. Perfectly located, staff were amazing, can’t fault it. Would have stayed even longer if I didn’t have a flight to catch. Oh and the spa... best massage of my life.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was fantastic. The staff made us feel like part of the family. It’s a beautiful property. I recommend it to anyone traveling to montanita.
Cons: Only thing I didn’t like was the coffee. At least it was free.
6.8 Good
Pros: I really love the grounds at Balsa. They are beautiful and super fun to hang out and not do a ton. The rooms are spacious, breakfast/all the food is delicious and water is hot. Staff is friendly and works hard. Relaxing and lovely place to stay. Also has a great location, is quiet and felt incredibly safe.
Cons: This kind of thing happens but there was a bit of construction work (welding) happening during our stay and it was loud during the day. I had the VW bus room, which was cool in theory but not practical in reality. The bus windows don't shut so the bus itself is pretty humid and the bed was uncomfortable in a wet, soggy way. The thing also smells a bit off - not a huge deal but isn't pleasant either. Though this didn't bother me, know that there is not really any privacy outside the bus. We paid something like $45/night per room and then they were $30/night when we checked in so I felt a bit put out by it. My biggest complaint with Balsa has nothing to do with the property itself (like I said, it's lovely and beautiful - great place to stay), but with the people who stay there. It is great for couples - and it was mostly couples and families who minded their own. So, if you are traveling solo (like I was) it's hard to chat with people. Obviously, this could just be the guests that were there at the time, but it had practically no social atmosphere when we were there and left me wishing I had stayed somewhere that I could have made friends as I later did. Had I paid less than I did, I am not sure that I would have really cared about the nit-picky things that much, but it was rather a lot of money (the most expensive lodging in all of my Ecuador for my trip) so the value didn't seem quite aligned.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I knew the property was going to look nice from the pictures. What surprised me was how nice the staff was and the food. It was truly a special place.

Pros: This was a great stay and the owners/staff do an awesome job. We could have easily stayed a month. The restaurant serves great food and is very resonably priced.

Pros: Breakfast was good and loved the location of the hotel. The hotel was beautiful and will be recommending in the future. I also enjoyed the gaming area.
Cons: The entrance to the hotel was a little not to my liking as there was no street as it had not been paved. Since it rained there was a lot of mud and difficult to walk through. This issue, of course, has nothing to do with your hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The wildlife was so fun to see and explore on the property. Beautiful place, very clean room. All animals look well cared for and happy. Location is close to the action, but not close enough to bother you while sleeping. The roosters on the property will give you a nice, natural morning call. The staff is very friendly. There are frequent buses off the main road that you can take to go home or arrive there. 2 minute walk to get breakfast from the street stalls after a long night of drinking and partying (same cocktail street).
Cons: It's a bit of a walk from the front entrance to the back corner of the property where you stay, but the walk is fantastic and full of beautiful creatures from ducks and chickens and turkeys to iguanas. Beware of the territorial duck that may be aggressive.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Lovely room and bathroom. The grounds are super cool if you like animals :) Filtered water in the kitchen is a real bonus!
Cons: There is a lot of wildlife and the birds started making noise from around five. Didn't bother us though.

Pros: This place is FILLED with animals (mainly ducks and roosters). So be aware that you will get waken up very early by them! But this place is a nice family owned hostal. Very close to town without having the sounds of the nightclubs.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The family who run the property are absolutely lovely and more than accomodating. Facilities are good- there is free water in the kitchen which is great. The rooms have ample space and a nice decking area and hammock outside. The grounds of the hostel are so nice with lots of animals- a little sanctuary set back from the hustle and bustle of Montañita. If you value your sleep in a party town, this is ideal! Little food shops and street food on the doorstep and a quick few minute walk to the beach. Highly recommended!
Cons: No breakfast included but a nice kitchen to prepare your own meals
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Jorge and his wife are very friendly and helpful and were always keen to help with anything. The setting of the rooms is very nice as it is away from the bars and clubs in a rural area with ducks, chickens, iguanas etc.

Pros: The hotel is in a perfect location on a quiet long stretch of beach . The grounds are nicely landscaped and the buildings very attractive.

Pros: We were treated like HONORED GUEST; a very memorable experience! The views from our room were breathtaking. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The owners quickly became BEST FRIENDS Providing great information of things to do around the area. Took us to a wonderful seaside LOCAL restraunt for the best fresh seafood. I would highlly recommend this beautiful experience to any travellers to ECUADOR. OHHH who could forget the pinapple empanadas at the wonderful breakfast buffett. A MUST DO AGAIN EXPERIENCE !
Cons: I am hard pressed to write anything negative. I am 78 yrs old so the tight SPIRAL STAIRCASE to the upper levels became a little bit of a challenge; but once there omg what a beautiful view
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food was incredible. Hosts and staff were fantastic. The pool and hot tub overlooking the beach was the best.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owners were amazing people. You felt welcome from the moment you arrived on the property. The water slide into the gorgeous infinity pool was fun for my 7 yr old....and for me as well! The cook was amazing as well...she made eggs benedict for us the first morning and an awesome omelet the next. Plus there was always fresh fruit available. The coffee was excellent as well. The beach immediately in front was rocky which is great for photos. You only had to walk down about 150 meters to get to a sandy beach entry. I'd recommend a cheap pair of water shoes with rubber soles just to get to the sandy part of the beach. The sunsets were AMAZING!!!!
Cons: Beds could have been more comfortable..a little too firm, but that is certainly subjective.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: From the moment we arrived we felt as if we were visiting friends! Marsha, Shell and Chocolate (the dog), made us feel right at home! The room was lovely. Clean, spacious with a very comfortable bed and pillows! Great ocean breezes and good cross ventilation in the room even on the warmest of days! A fantastic breakfast with pastries from the well known pastry chef Benito! The owners went above and beyond one evening by driving us (with other guests) to a beach restaurant and pointing out points of interest along the way. All in all a lovely weekend. We will be back!

Pros: Really cool hang out area, fair prices for food&drinks

10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of my favourite hostels. Room was great, even when we had issues with our shower they went over and above to sort out. Breakfasts were delicious - something different every day which was a novelty. Tamara, Dani and jade were delightful, so friendly. Even though the weather was average I wanted to stay here for longer - great vibes and would definitely stay again if I am in montanita. Location is about s 10 min walk from the town so you don’t get all the noise but can easily go and find it ;-)
Cons: Nothing!

Pros: The infraestructure and the Pool are amazing.
Cons: Breakfast is miserable. Took too long, there was not enough food and did never serve juice. For the price I paid there should be at least buffet. Also, we were out of toilet paper (they don’t put an extra just in case) and they took so much time to bring a new roll (we asked for it in the night and it arrived the next morning after asking for it one more time).

Cons: Loud music at the pool between 17:00-19:00 prevented us from napping
7.0 Good
Pros: Very quiet location, great for persons who do not want to party all night long. It is short walk from the centre, 700 m and it goes very quickly. Room was very small but ok for short stay. Bedsheet were not white which is mark of lower quality for me. Bathroom was ok. Good AC, pity that fan was not working. Ok wifi. Usual breakfast with bread, fruits, ham and cheese and 1 egg revuelto.

Cons: It says it had a restaurant but I never saw food anywhere and no one told me anything, no big deal as food in town was awesome and cheap
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Helpful staff, a little bit outside of Montañita with quietness being the positive aspect, nice rooms with AC.
Cons: We were the only one when we arrived, it was off-season. During the night other people checked in and were very loud especially when they came back from town at 3am. Of course this is not the hotel‘s fault.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: We loved our stay at Tavarua Hotel last weekend. The location is great as it's quiet and just a short 5-minute walk into the centre of Montañita. We liked the terrace where a delicious breakfast was served each day. The pool is lovely, especially in the evenings. The gentleman at reception was very welcoming and accommodating. I would definitely recommend the hotel and also stay again :)
4.3 Okay
Pros: The pool is really nice. Loved the dog. Rooms are ok but nothing special.
Cons: We booked this hotel during off-season (mid of May). Our stay was really disappointing. We had the feeling of not being welcomed in the hotel from the beginning of our arrival.. Although we booked a room including breakfast, the guy at the reception refused to provide us the service of breakfast. It was even not possible to get breakfast by paying extra for it. Lunch and dinner were also not offered. During our stay of three days we were the only guests here. We were allowed to use the kitchen. However, the kitchen was so dirty that we were really afraid of using it (see attached picture). On Saturday night, the guy at the reception invited some friends to drink accompanied by loud party music. We really felt uncomfortable and not safe during that night. All in all, we were not valued at all as guests here. If this is the way guests are treated in the low season, the management of the hotel should rather close the hotel during this period.
6.8 Good
Pros: Nice bathroom and shower, breakfast was ok and young man at reception was very friendly.
Cons: Room was quite dark and beds not very comfy. Lack of attention to detail, lack of plug sockets in room and the ones not being used by tv and lamp were damaged

Fun, helpful, supportive, interesting, friends, they are all of this and more.

Pros: Location compared to the busy and loud city was nice , except for the roosters that start in the morning at 5:30, earplugs for that are recommended. You can walk to the city in less than five minutes, where all the loud music is playing all day long. Rooms were clean and enough space.
Cons: Roosters at 5:30 in the morning, sometimes there was not hot water. Shower was very soft.
5.8 Okay
Pros: I really wanted to like this place, actually was really excited to stay in the cabanas so the disappointment is even worse. The outside is really lovely with the pool and lots of common areas to chill. The little hammocks on the patio in front of each room were really comfy. The private bathroom I had was very basic but clean and had hot water. The cleaning lady who came the next morning was a delightful person and the guy who checked me in was actually very nice. I do have to say my complaints were handled very well and the manager was helpful and understanding. I can't say this was the worst place I ever stayed in, but unfortunately it was a total disappointment.
Cons: First off, I really don't like giving bad reviews and try to be understanding. But from the moment I arrived everything was off. The receptionist seemed surprised I was by myself but showed me to the room, but no explanation about anything, no mention about the payment, not one thing. I was a bit confused because usually you get some kind of welcome talk. The room I was given was a cabana with one double bed and one single, with a desk, a safe and a chest of drawers. None of which have been wiped - bugs and bug excrement everywhere, on top of the bed frame, inside it, inside the safe... It really is impossible to NOT notice that. Piles of what I assume was termite droppings? by the beds, dead insects under the bed. The double mattress is really disgusting when you lift the sheets. The chest of drawers with the safe on top has a terrible overpowering musty smell. Stains all over walls, generally a very run down room which is sad, it really doesn't take that much effort to wipe things off especially that there is hardly any furniture and no carpets... A sad thing is, the room looks okayish when you first walk in, but when you have a look around you see all of these grimy details, it's really awful because it's so easy to fix. To top it off, when I lifted the top bedsheet, turns out the sheets have not actually been changed and had some crusty stains on them - disgusting. Common kitchen is just as bad, although usable and quite handy as there is no breakfast. I think this place has a massive potential and probably was an oasis at some point but to me it seems very run down and under-managed and I think it's more focused on the Spanish school students who are staying long term. Fair enough but don't rent the rooms out to people who want to relax for a couple of days without stressing about the dirt and grime.

Pros: Super chilled but also invited to join the other guests/staff on nights out and other fun stuff if I liked.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Lovely little haven just outside the centre of Montanita. Really nice staff and the place had everything we needed.
Cons: Pumping music from the place next door into the early hours wasn't great, but it was carnival weekend so it seemed to be like that everywhere. My only real complaint is that they hosted a bbq for all the language students staying there, which we were not invited to. This made us feel really excluded and uncomfortable - they should either allow everyone to join in activities or make the place unavailable to non-students. This was quite disappointing.
7.5 Good
Pros: It's has a very nice pool and comfy bedrooms, the staff is excellent and they are always looking you to have the best time. The location of the place is the best.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was really great and the property is perfect location. Great being away from the crazy noise, but close enough to do the walk back and forth a few times. We were staying longer so they let us move to a bigger room.
Cons: My only complaint was the smell of the room, which smelled of bad mold and something like a pesticide. It caused my wife and I both to have breathing problems and feel sick for a few days. It made the room uncomfortable to be in. Wasn’t sure exactly what it was, but certain it wasn’t healthy

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff only spoke Spanish, but they were incredibly friendly and helpful. They were attentive toward our requests and worked very hard to make sure our stay was comfortable. We were so comfortable, we decided to stay in Montanita longer than originally planned. Their chef also made tasty sushi. As for the room, it was large and cozy. The property was clean and very well-maintained, breakfast was basic but filling, and we had beach access. We were only 10 minutes away from the party (cocktail alley, Lost Beach Club, etc.), but it was far away enough that each night was quiet enough rest for the next day. Their hammock zones were very peaceful and relaxing. Oh, and there is a clean, friendly pack of dogs that live on the property! Overall, it was one of our favorite places to stay in Ecuador.
Cons: The shower didn't have good water pressure, but at least it was warm!

2.5 Mediocre
Pros: The pools are nice but should be cleaned. The breakfast was alright. None of it is really worth the value of what I paid.
Cons: There were crickets in the shower, the curtains did not work, the patio doors did not work and the fridge froze all of my food and drinks. Then, the service was poor and the location I was in was really noisy.
6.3 Good
Pros: It’s a nice looking property, well situated close to downtown Montanita. The staff was friendly. Nice that they have jacuzzi’s on every balcony.
Cons: When we arrived in the evening, there were so many things wrong with the place: - One bathroom didn’t have toilet paper, no soap and shampoo in either bathroom and missing paper towels in the kitchen - Two lights were out so it was dimly lit (they only ended up replacing one) - Door handle was missing on sliding glass door making it so hard to open and close (never got fixed despite being told it would) - Leak coming from refrigerator that never got fixed - Downstairs bedroom door had massive crack - Only had one glass and two coffee mugs in the cupboard (gave us a pack of 6 after complaining) - Shower door of upstairs bathroom is super cheap and difficult to open and close (rails also super filthy that never got cleaned) - No hand towels in the bathrooms (hotel doesn’t have any of you can believe it) so had to use large towels instead The hotel in general needs better upkeep. Lot of potential but you’re not getting the value and quality you would expect at those prices in that area. Would be pretty easy for them to have a checklist of items to make sure everything is in order before guest check in. Just need more attention to detail which matters in the hotel business.

Cons: not clean, mold in room and smell of mold. No maintenance on grounds. Construction work all around, an eyesore and took away from "ocean view"
6.3 Good
Pros: The hammocks are a nice add, the second pool was nice. The breakfast was great, but inconsistent. The staff was nice. The hot tub was working great, the room overall was nice but compared to other local properties I just expected more.
Cons: I'm not sure it met my expectations because of the cost. It's a nice place for sure. I just felt like I was just paying more for access to a pool. Breakfast was great but we were told it was only included because the main pool was damaged in an earthquake. Even though the ad on booking was not updated. The screen doors were falling off in our room, and the bathroom shower shoots water all over the floor. The street traffic and local rooster made the front building much louder than expected. Even after being warned. Also there is no real restaurant or bar on location. Its more of a hotel than a resort. The water was shut off to our room our last night too, I had to let staff know to get it fixed. (Shower,sink,toilet) our stay was just filled with little annoyances, and for the cost, they really stood out.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This property was amazing! Jacuzzi on balcony was everything! Property was like a bungalo in Bali feeling. We absolutely loved it. After reading some not so good reviews we decided to stay anyway as it looked the best in area but, wow!, glad we did. Idk what those people were talking about so glad they were wrong because I can’t see any reason not to love this place, it was beautiful. Charming atmosphere, super unique, romantic, set just off the main strip of the surfer town. Super close walking distance to all main areas but just far enough to be a little more relaxed it was perfect. Area was totally safe we walked back and forth at all hours even myself alone. Was absolutely spectacular. Yoga studio was so charming, staff for breakfast treated us as if we were in their home. And to top it all off, the day we left we were continuing on to islands where u need cash. Well I accidentally and carelessly left all the cash at our disposal In the room safe, and night I say it was a substantial amount. relizing 5 hours later on the other end of the country . Our trip would have been ruined if the owner of the hotel himself didn’t go above and beyond to not only be honest enough to say he found it but returned it to us working hours by sending it to me personally. I have never come across a more amazing person in my life. So needless to say after a flawless experience at the hotel, he continued to offer the utmost top service. I couldn’t be more in awe. This is a must stay property. We can’t wait to return.

Pros: Location is great. On the beach and next to the main pedestrian walking streets, but not right next to the night clubs. Staff was good. Has a pool and hot tub which was nice. We got a top floor room with a hammock on the balcony overlooking the ocean.
Cons: Room could have been a little cleaner but was fine. We paid $40 USD per night which I thought was a little high for what we got but not out of line. The air conditioner had had no drain, only a little pail sitting outside our door so water pooled and ran into our room but no big deal.
5.8 Okay
Pros: It was next to the beach and close to the shops and restaurants. The recepcionist was nice. The view to the beach was awesome.
Cons: The toilet always had a really bad smell, towells weren't change every day by the staff. The street was too noisy at night, everyday. The quality of the water was really poor. Swimming pool with too much cloro. During weekends the pool was super crowded. Too many flying "grillos".
