Villa de Los Suenos
Ranked #1 of 2 La Entrada B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2012

We stayed at the Villa de los Suenos and couldn't be happier. I'm actually hesitant to post this review because I'd rather keep the place a secret.

It is a small hotel run by a friendly North American couple. There are 4 spacious suites with kitchenettes and large balconies with gorgeous views, hammocks, and tables.

There is a pool with a slide & hot tub, a cabana, and sandy area for lounging, and the beach is right below you. There are no noisy neighbors and the roar of the surf will lull you to sleep. A sea breeze keeps it cool enough that we didn't even need the AC.

Villa de los Suenos is in La Entrada, Ecuador, 10 minutes taxi or bus ride north of Montañita, a small fishing village away from tourist crowds. The sleepy town has friendly children and every morning at dawn I would take our two kids down to the beach to watch the young men lead their open fishing boats out through the surf, and then we'd play in the waves and build sand castles until breakfast.

Shell and Marsha are the epitome of hospitality. They prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning and on our first and last night offered us dinner. The even installed a child-proof gate on our balcony so our kids wouldn't fall down the spiral staircase. The were patient and friendly with the children who loved them and plied them with questions.

"Let's go see my friend Marsha" was my daughters second most common request, after "Let's go to the beach." The children loved playing with our hosts' dog Chocolate, but he was sometimes a little bit too enthusiastic for them.

They have reliable high speed wi-fi internet and I was able to work remotely while there. Taking a dip in the pool or a walk on the beach was almost as much of a productivity boost and the view of the waves were a distraction.

There is a decent small wave breaking in La Entrada, and while I didn't go out, the locals put on a good show in the water. There were no tourist surfers that I saw. I spent one day surfing at Montañita, and I think it breaks better at La Entrada though there are some low rocks. Watching the locals will help you avoid them, and there are no crowds.

Our last day, I did get to take my son out on a boogie-board that Shell loaned us. At 3 years old, he was afraid to go out in the waves (up to my waist), and he clutched tightly around my shoulders, but squealed with delight as each wave bore us back in to shore.

It is a great place to get away and would be ideal for a small group (like a wedding or anniversary) or couple just wanting privacy & relaxation.

Room Tip: Open your windows and let the sea breeze cool you off at night. The sound of the surf is louder tha...

I originally found this place on vrbo while looking for something on the coast that wasn't in the center of the party town Montanita. I saw the pictures and I was sold. We originally booked for 3 nights but upon arrival knew we needed to add 3 more, so we did. This place is amazing. It is right on the beach, has a beautiful infinity pool with slide and shallow area for relaxing or kids, a hot tub, and it's own private beach as well. The rooms are cute and well-stocked with water and fluffy towels. Perhaps even better than the amazing place itself was Marsha and Shell, the owners. The treated us like old friends, and made our stay beyond great. We brought our 2 & 3 year old kids, and they were always finding ways to make things perfect for them as well (putting in a gate on the balcony for us, making pancakes, etc.) They also gave us great recommendations where to eat in town, where to find the things we needed, and were all around super helpful. The rest of the staff was also very friendly and helpful. And breakfast! Super delicious. If you are looking for somewhere peaceful, beautiful, and perfect... this is the place!
