Reviewed 18 March 2010

Very nice place in Montanita. The place was clean and people working there were very friendly. An A to the food! The best food I had in my all trip was definitely at Swiss Point. Also, being 100% italian I have to say that the pasta they cooked was REALLY REALLY delicious. Different breakfast everyday and several different plates for launch. This last point is very important because all you can find around in Montanita is Camarones, Platanos, Arroz! Believe me, you get sick after 2 days. The location is very quiet. It is perfect for surfers or visitors. Near by the beach. Place is definitely safe, and there were a private parking for our car.

Swisspoint is hardly a skip and a jump from the action of Montanita and the beaches, which makes it all the more attractive. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the air conditioning was a blessing! In a town where most of the accomodations are cheap and you likely get what you pay for, Swisspoint is well worth the few exrta $. If you want to experience the beach and FUN of Montanita, without compromising your sleep, cleanliness, and appetite, this is the place for you. My husband and I are kind of retired backpackers and partiers, so this place was perfect for us. Great meals too, the almost gourmet breakfast with the best juice in town!

We stayed in Swisspoint for 3 nights. We had a great time there. It's located 2 minutes from the noisy downtown but at the same time it's really calmed to rest. Montañita is really vivid with loads of partying all night long. This place is perfect to travel with your partner as you can stop with the noise by going to the hotel anytime you want and you will feel really calm. The breakfast is very good also, with yoghurt with muesli and red fruits, coffee, bread, butter, jam and also a special dish equivalent to a lunch (beef with potatoes and onion, for example), really gourmet. The staff is also very kind and helpful.

Montanita is a rather scruffy surfers heaven/haven. The Swiss hotel is a welcome respite from the craziness. The personal attention of the owner, Marcel ,was perfectly delightful and the room was spotless. The breakfast, which was included, was incredibly delicious and, in itself worth the amazing price of $25.00 per night!

The service, rooms and food were the best we experienced while in Ecuador for 3 weeks. Silvia made us feel like one of her family and her son's cuisine was absolutely FANTASTIC and......I am a cook as well!!!
Large air conditioned rooms, close but not to close in Montanita..quiet, clean and ultra comfortable...I really cant say enough about the place and its proprietors...simply...
ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!

Found little gem in Montanita or about 100m outside of the town. Basically, it spoiled the rest of the trip. Swiss Ecuadorean Father-Son team put together a really nice oasis amidst a surfer backpacker town.
Clean rooms, AC, hangers for clothes, scented air freshener in drawers. Clean towels, one red, one white so you know who´s who. Comfortable beds. 50m from beach. One drawback is it is ride on the main road out of town. But with AC on and the solid cement block construction, noise was not much of a factor.

The real highlight was the food. The son is a Swiss trained chef and we had great food for breakfast and for dinner. A different breakfast everyday, real food not the 2 pieces of bread, instant juice and spreads that are so prevalent in South America. I casually mentioned having a special dinner and was surprised that the owner had the table decorated just for this occasion. Wine selection available as well.

Marcelo Niederman and his lovely wife are the best! Their hostal is so charming and they really try their best to make you feel at home. The breakfast is included with the reservation. It was the best I had in Ecuador. The rooms are super comfortable and clean. The hostal is not right on the beach, but the walk is not even 2 min. It's two blocks away from the beach. The location is perfect for people who do not want to be right on the noisy part of town in Montanita. The hostal itself and its location are very safe and well lighted at night. There is a garage. The staff is very friendly and cordial. There are cheaper prices in Montanita to stay, but Swisspoint is worth every penny in comparison with other hostals in the area. We will definitely go back and hopefully soon!
