We stayed here for 4 nights. The breakfast was satisfying, the hotel is far enough away from the centre where it isn't loud and the rooms have great wifi.

Modern...

Tabuba hostal is a very nice and small hotel in the beach front of montanita. Montanita is a young, busy and loud town at night, and Tabuba is Close enough to walk everywhere and very quiet to sleep and listen to the ocean.
