I spend 3 months at the Montanita Spanish School and had a great time learning Spanish. The teachers are amazing and they make it easy for you to keep studying. The diversity of grammar, playful learning and just talking makes the classes never boring. If your lucky you spend some of your classes outside, on the beach or eating cake.... More

I've been for three and a half weeks in Montañita and it was awesome. The school is well organised and the teachers are always smiling and are really patient with you as a student. The cabañas are clean and on an excellent location. I've stayed with a hostfamily for two weeks which was also really awesome. Lovely people who make... More

I had a wonderful experience at the Montanita Spanish School. I took medical Spanish classes because I have a lot of Spanish-speaking patients, and it was clear that my professors had a genuine interest in making sure that I was comfortable with the conversation and vocabulary needed for my career. I truly appreciated their dedication to my learning and had... More

The online reviews and the so-called ranking as a top 5 Spanish school in the world really set a high bar, which the school doesn't meet. But I would not even consider the school "pretty good". The schedule is super strange, two hours, a long break, and then two more hours. I went from 8-10 and 3-5. In my opinion,... More

School was great and took classes w/max of 5 students. Teachers were great, and the vibe of the town as well. Be careful to not ingest water even for brushing your teeth! The hostel I stayed in that was recommended by the school was great and as a woman traveling alone for several months that was much appreciated. I can't... More
