A dream come true

  • 5 of 5

Villa de Los Suenos was a dream come true for us, a family of four. Our boys, ages 8 and 11, loved the pool and its slide and the dog, Choco! We enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, comfortable rooms and great hospitality of the hosts. You can tell that both Marsha and Shell enjoy people and were always willing to help with ideas and suggestions. We used their recommendation for our whale watching and Isla de la Plata combination tour and had a great time. The blue footed boobies and sea turtles were amazing. And of course, seeing humpback whales breeching and up close was incredible! Villa de los Suenos is located about 30 minutes south of Puerto Lopez and 10 minutes north of Montanita. Wonderful location - very relaxing - you can sleep with the windows open to hear the Pacific Ocean and when the tide is low, explore the tidepools right outside the gate. HIghly recommend this for travelers of any sort! We stayed for 3 nights and loved every moment of our time in the area and at this great bed & breakfast.

What a Fantastic B&B!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 5-night stay at Villa de Los Suenos - what a great location and a real bargain! The hosts, Marsha and Shell, made you feel right at home and couldn't have been more gracious. They helped with all our plans and were a wealth of knowledge regarding the local sights and restaurants. We have to say the views of the Pacific were fantastic and the whale watching from the elevated patio was a real treat. The rooms were very spacious, comfortable and clean while the patio provided a great spot for enjoying the lapping waves or just reflecting on the day's experiences. The big pool with a monster slide and the hot tub was a wonderful place to hang out when not exploring the coastal towns. The breakfasts were top notch with all the fresh fruit and pastries you could eat and the eggs-to-order! In summary, we found this B&B to be a great value and having an ideal location - we will definitely stay here on our next visit ...

Great Host, Felt at Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Villa de los Sueños with our 2 teenage children and 2 year old Golden Retriever, and every single one of us had a great time! Marsha was so accommodating and hospitable that we all felt like being at home. She was generous with her time and shared a great deal of tips about Ecuador, including taking us to a restaurant a few minutes away to try some awesome seafood, right by the sea. We are already planning our next visit to Villa de los Sueños, and we are looking to get Penthouse, which some friends had this time, and it was ideal for couples. I'd recommend Villa de los Sueños without hesitation.

You are at HOME here!

Villa de los Sueños embodies "mi casa es su casa"... Home IS where the HEART is! Your Heart and Soul will be renewed and restored by this lovely home and its owners. It offers the space and place that truly holds what you may need from the beautiful coast of Ecuador. My husband and I specifically went for the Whale watching season but what we discovered and received was much more--a place of Grace!

Sure you can easily go to Montanita or Puerto Lopez catch waves, people watch, grab some tasty food fare, but right smack in the middle of them is La Entrada Villa de los Sueños Heaven!

Do what you will here: Whale watch, rest, fish, swim, stare at the sea, reconnect to your Heart center-- Eat, Pray.. LOVE... Just GO!

Peace and Blessings

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 kids ages 8 and 10) stayed here in June 2016 for 6 nights and we could not have chosen a better place for our beach vacation. Marsha is a wonderful host and did everything she could to make our stay even more enjoyable. We did not rent a car but she arranged for a driver to pick us up in Guayaquil. We used the bus, which was very easy and cheap but Marsha drove us several times to show us around, take us paragliding or to a restaurant. She made recommendations for tours or surf instructor, always called them herself and arranged everything. It was very relaxing to sit on the terrace and read, listen to the ocean, etc. Our kids were absolutely thrilled with the pool and the slide and were actually very sad when it was time to leave because they loved it here so much. Not to mention they were very happy they could play with their friendly dog Choco. The breakfast buffet was great as well. It was hard to resist the pastries, fruit, eggs, fresh squeezed orange juice etc. We were always stuffed. :) Marsha always offered we take some with us if we were going on a trip. She is really very nice and I would not hesitate to recommend this place to others. And if you have kids, I don't think there is a better place in the area. Thank you again, Marsha.

The Villa is the highest point on the 8 mile stretch of beach. We offer WIFI internet to our customers. Cap off these amenities with a continental breakfast with breads and cinnamon rolls from famous Benito's Bakery. It really does’t get much better.
