The online reviews and the so-called ranking as a top 5 Spanish school in the world really set a high bar, which the school doesn't meet. But I would not even consider the school "pretty good". The schedule is super strange, two hours, a long break, and then two more hours. I went from 8-10 and 3-5. In my opinion,... More

School was great and took classes w/max of 5 students. Teachers were great, and the vibe of the town as well. Be careful to not ingest water even for brushing your teeth! The hostel I stayed in that was recommended by the school was great and as a woman traveling alone for several months that was much appreciated. I can't... More

I stayed in Montañita for three weeks in January to attend the Spanish school. I enjoyed the classes very much, the teachers are great and I really learned a lot! Instead of surfing I signed up for the daily yoga lessons with Casey! She is an amazing teacher and her yoga lessons were my favorite part of the day! Thanks... More

Was there for 2 weeks. I can highly recommend it. Well organised, the staff is always on time (we are in Ecuador, that's not the rule here). Good and motivated teachers, caters to all levels. Privat classes are really helpful too. The cabañas accommodation they offer was not my style, very noisy due to the neighbouring backpackers. The cleaning service... More

I've been here three years in a row (in the beautiful month of January) and am very satisfied with the quality of the teachers, the structure of the lessons, the surf breaks in Montanita, the activities outside of class that help build community, and the cool and chill vibe of the community of Montanita.

I can recommend Montanita Spanish School 100 %. Returned to the school in January 2017 after a great visit in Nov/Dec 2015. Both times I have had an amazing time. The school is really good, with great teachers and also it is pretty cheap compared to many other spanish schools around the world. I would recommend taking the private classes.... More

We stayed a week at montanita Spanish school and the montanita cabanas, at the booking we weren't aware that montanita is such a party place but it turned out that during a stay in the montanita cabanas you are all free to choose your own activities - as much school, party and surf as you want. Enjoyed the stay!
