awesome hotel steps from downtown montanita and all the action but feeling like your own little oasis.Owner upgraded us to a beautiful suite with amazing views of town and sunset.Service was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome by staff and owner.
Villa Curia is located next to the Rout of Spondylus which goes along most of the Pacific coast of Ecuador. The villas are located on top of a hill and the view of the ocean is just fantastic. The theme of the facility is nature and you are surrounded with plants and flowers most of the time. Well decorated. Several places to sit and relax. My favorite place was a couple of hammocks on top of a hill, where you can hear, smell and watch the ocean, perfect to lay back and read a book or just sleep (just be careful at night as few mosquitoes may get you). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big, confortable, clean and the villa has almost all comodities.
Now the cons... To get to the beach you had to walk quite a bit, preferable go by car. Nowhere to eat nearby, and we had to drive to Montañita to eat or have drinks.
Overall, we had a very good experience.
My husband and I can't wait to return. The owners Ed and Tania are great and inspiring people. There is no need for TV so just unwind and connect with nature.You will truly be able to relax.I'd highĺy suggest to rent a car and explore nearby beaches. We ate in Montanita at Rocios and Marea. You can surf, take nature walks and do kayak. Do not expect to watch TV. You can rely on good wifi and surf the web without a problem.
Good located, 10min to walk to the center of montanita (party place -> very noisy during the nights). You dont hear the party music at the hotel.
Breakfast is very good. Nice garden in the hotel area. Absolutly recommendable.
In a haven of swaying palms and lush vegetation, the Balsa Surf Camp is your private idyll in Ecuador. This 3 star hotel in …More
The hotel is directly on the beach. My room was literally feet away from the high tide. An amazing location and I would certainly go back. The staff is great as well. Would recommend the hotel to anyone.
