If you are visiting Montañita, La Gondola is the best place to stay!! We were scheduled to stay for 2 nights and ended up staying for 10 nights - we loved it that much. The bungalows/rooms & bar/restaurant are all directly on the beach; the rooms are all super comfortable with AC; and the staff & visitors are all just...

I came to la Gondola in Montañita, with my mother and my sister, we had an amazing time, the hotel was very comfortable and cozy! The staff was welcoming and friendly and made new friends with the other hotel guests. The hotel is very close to town ,walking distance, and we had the beach to ourselves.

Sergio the owner made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the rest of the staff was equally stellar. Location was just far away enough from town to get a great nights sleep, but easy to get to the city center as well. The restaurant/bar on premises il Pirata was incredible, the chef a master, and the bartender...

There were tons of really sweet dogs on property too. In the morning we enjoyed a nice family style breakfast, the meal included fresh fruit, eggs and coffee. My favorite...

Quiet, relaxing and close enough to town to get some excitement. Breakfast was good and staff treated us well. Lots of hot water, fluffy towels and everything in the room worked. There is a small bar on this property if you want to have a quiet drink, owner was friendly enough that we played board games with him and he...

We spent 3 nights here during carnival and should have stayed longer. This place is like camping on the beach in some Gilligan Islands huts. We loved it. Nice, safe, grounds right on a great beach for playing in the waves. We would come back here. Very comfortable atmosphere. One of the only places in town with shade. Nice caretakers....

I won't anybody recommend to stay at this accomodation. The worst thing is that the rooms without aircondition are very humid and smell very bad. We couldn't sleep at all because it just was so uncomfortable. Also it is not very clean. There were hair in the bed and everywhere was sand. When I asked to change the sheets the...

“Casa Verde, rm 2 is great! No AC but with the windows open you get a really nice ocean breeze which is MUCH nicer than AC.”
