All we have to say is, outstanding! It was truly an amazing experience. From our first communication with our host Chad, to our departure, everything was flawless. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly when we arrived and continued to be very attentive throughout our stay.
We entered the penthouse and said "WOW"! The "5" is spacious, unique and modern with beautiful furnishings and tastefully decorated. We've been living in Ecuador now for seven years and it's a thrill to finally have luxury accommodations in Montanita. We are a family of five and everyone had more than enough room and privacy for our retreat.
The view is nothing less than spectacular. The sounds of the surf lulled us to sleep in the most luxurious bedding we've ever slept in. We loved the rain down shower with a view of the ocean, stepping out to dry off with sumptuous towels. We took advantage of the fully stocked kitchen and the friendly neighborhood tiendas supplied us with all the essentials. Within a five minute walk along the Malecon we were in the middle of the action. Montanita offers endless cafes with great food and entertaining people watching. The hotel provides rental standup paddleboard's and boogie boards, which we used at the beach everyday. Our surf instructor, Edon, who was recommended by our host was fantastic. The kids took lessons every day and loved the experience.
The "5" is our new "go to" getaway in Montanita. Mil Gracias Chad for being such an amazing host! You'll hear from us again soon!
