This was the most terrible Hotel we're we stayed in Ecuador. The staff was not helpful and very unfriendly. The hot water in the rooms wasn't working. The security box hadn't battery. We paid 250$ per night and couldn't sleep because of the music during the night. For that money we were expecting a good breakfast, but it was a joke.

In early October we stayed at the hotel for two nights. The hotel is rated as five stars without justification. The location is excellent, the view from the balcony is beautiful. Deluxe King Room is small with no wardrobe. The shower is at the hostel level, every time we opened the taps we got a cold shower on the face and to wait a long time to get hot water. The breakfast was poor, and extra bread had to be paid . ($ 200 a night and you have to pay for a slice of bread). We were originally supposed to stay for three days, but we preferred to settle for two days.

We had a wonderful experience at Dharma Beach The best location and a great chef. Couldn’t ask for more. Even though the regular Montañita experience includes very noisy nights , we could find peace and silence most of the time.

We recently spent three nights here. The room was nice with an oceanside view. It was nice having a corner room because the balconies aren't private and are only separated by some potted plants. The incense that is used in the rooms was super strong, and we ended up moving the spray outside during our stay. The internet was also a little spotty, but you get that with the location. We liked that the hotel was located near a lot of hostels, restaurants, and shops. However, it gets a little loud at night with the clubs just down the beach. The hotel restaurant/bar was clutch as it seems to be one of the only walk-ups from the beach. Overall, it was a nice stay. The restaurant had great food and drink options and the room was clean and organized with a nice view of the ocean.
