    A Pacific Ocean Paradise

    Enjoy our private beach, outdoor pool, and free buffet breakfast

    Delight in a free buffet breakfast every morning at our restaurant and then head to the beach or outdoor pool, grabbing refreshing cocktails from the bar. We keep the kids entertained with a children’s pool and play area and keep you connected with free WiFi and a business center. You’ll also find free parking, dry cleaning and laundry service, and a friendly 24/7 staff.

    Make the Most of Montañita

    Visit iconic sites, learn Spanish, and enjoy water activities

    When you feel like venturing from the hotel, discover the charms of this bohemian town. Take in gorgeous views from the religious site of Santuario Blanca Estrella de la Mar, pay homage to Montañita’s surfing history at the Monumento del Surfista, and book a lesson at the renowned Montañita Spanish School or a yoga class at Yoga Montañita. If surfing’s not your scene, try paragliding, parasailing, scuba diving, or snorkeling. You can also make the trek to Machalilla National Park and spot sea turtles, whales, and marine birds on Isla de la Plata.
