We...

My wife and I were in Montanita only one night and stayed here. It was very nice and affordable. It was comfortable and clean and the staff were very nice. We wished that we could have spent more time here.

Love the beach front location of this hotel and it's location slightly out of the main town area - just close enough for when you want to go into town for a drink or food, but just far enough away that crowds and noise was never an issue for us. Breakfast was great as well, and the free Yoga on...

We spent here two nights. The location is simply perfect, right close to the beach, with private access to it. The negative points are conneceted with the breakfast (no vergan at all) and the room, extremely small and without view. The garden is nice and the staff quite good.

3.5 First off, Kundalini was maybe a hostal at one time in the past, but now it's a hotel (that sometimes feels like a retirement community). I ended up staying in two rooms, #9 & #10. Room #9 is on the corner of the main building on the first floor and has one hammock with a view of a road...

We liked this hostal and it was by far a great mid ranged value for the dump of a town Montanita. Small bedrooms, but that's all you really need. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Hammock on your balony. We faced a pathway so it wasn't the best view but there still was a huge flower bush that did add something pretty...

We stayed here in October and we will return for sure ! The check in process was easy and the young lady at the desk (Carla) couldn't have been nicer ! She told us of places to eat and helped us with where a pharmacy was, even taking us there on her day off when we couldn't find it !...

Pros:Great view, Quiet location 5 minutes from the main road, free Breakfeast and private Cabanas on the beach. C*ns: People that say that its good quality/price (40$-80$ per night)are definitely north americans... Other place range from 10$-40$ a night , some of them offer more options in the room and a better service from the employees. All you can hear...

Great property right on the beach. Beautiful green space. A range of rooms, from basic to more elegant. Nice breakfast included in the rate. Very friendly staff. I also think its the perfect location--an easy walk into the main part of town but just far enough off the main drag that you can actually sleep peacefully at night. We've stayed...
