We originally planned to stay at this hostel for one or two nights but we fell in love with it so we stayed for 5! The location is a 10 minute walk from the centre along the beach. It was perfect as you can get away from the noise of the town and it is directly opposite the prime spot... More

A perfect getaway from the bustle of town, with comfortable rooms and a terrace to enjoy the sunset. The host is careful to make sure you are in good hands. There are some wonderful walks right there, along the beach to town, or over the hill north to Olon.

Great place to stay if you want some peace and quiet in this town. Beachfront with hammocks to watch the action. Reasonable and clean and breakfast include. Yoga classes across the lane and good sushi Thai restaurant next door.

I highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a quite place on the beach and wants to wake up to the sight of the surf conditions. Great rooms, very clean, good breakfast, good stuff, unmatched view and cool breeze.

This place was nice. For a few days. That was until our fourth night when someone managed to unlock the door of our room, come in while we were asleep between 1 and 2am, and steal my entire back pack plus a phone, cards and cash. The thieves obviously had a key or stole the key from inside the hostel,... More

The hostal is located in an amazing spot and rooms are simple but nice. Unfortunately, in a 4 days stay they have done zero cleaning of rhe room: for a hostal on the beach this is unacceptable. They also say is possible to pay by card, but then they charged us with 7% bank commission: never happened in 3 weeks... More

Charlie and Carlos the two gentlemen that run Sole Mare are just fantastic, they helped me out a lot when I was stuck for a nights accommodation during a very busy weekend.

After staying 1 week at the Casa Del Sol Hostel across the street, I decided to move to Sole mare! And it was definitely the right decision. It's cleaner, calmer, cheaper, closer to the beach with the breakfast in front of the sea and the sound of waves at night! It was perfect! I stayed there 4 weeks and i... More

Would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect, at the end of the beach, far enough from the hustle and bustle of Montañita but a short pleasant walk on the beach to the main part of town. Also, easy for transportation, buses can be taken from nearby on the main road and are frequent and inexpensive, taxis are cheap... More
