The first (arrival) night's accommodation is at our student house, which is located just across the street from the Spanish school in the lively neighbourhood La Mariscal. Surrounded by restaurants and bars, there is enough to do in the area to not get bored! But our house is comfortable as well: a spacious living room with a TV, DVD and a comfy sofa, a big table to eat with all your housemates and a great kitchen that is fully equipped for you to cook your meals. In our main house we have shared and private rooms.
Accommodation in Montanita
We have accommodation especially for our students - the cabanas. An oasis of tranquility located just 5 minutes from the school, 3 minutes from the town centre and 2 minutes from the beach. Nestled into the relaxed atmosphere of ‘Barrio Tigrillo’ these cabanas provide the best of both worlds, being moments away from the centre of the action and providing the peace and tranquility needed to make the most of your time in Montanita. Just outside the door of your cabana you will find a swimming pool, jacuzzi, large communal kitchen and a large sitting area with a TV and DVD.
The shared mini dorms are the perfect option for those looking to for high quality accommodation on a budget. Keeping true to the rustic look of Montanita, our dorm rooms are all large and spacious allowing you to soak up the peaceful ambiance while saving those hard earned $$. With the options of either 6 bed or 4 bed dorms you will not have problems maintaining some personal privacy. However, if you would rather have your own space, a private option is available.
