Here on the coast, the weather is normally in the mid 70’s.The tranquil beachfront setting of Villa de Los Suenos allows you to rest by the pool, soak in the Jacuzzi, walk the long stretch of beach, and enjoy the view from the terrace. We are in the small village of La Entrada 10 minutes north of Montanita.

The whale-watching day trips out of Puerto Lopez are a thrill—50-foot humpbacks breaching. Archaeological tours, day trips, and more.

Our suites and penthouse meet US standards. Check out the pool & Jacuzzi pictures on our website, our TripAdvisor reviews, and a 3-minute drone video of Villa de Los Suenos.

We know that transportation from Cuenca to the coast can be a challenge, so we found a way to make it easy. We’ve teamed up with Van Service for Transporte y Turismo in Cuenca for a four-night stay at Villa de Los Suenos, including round trip transportation for $250 per person based on double occupancy. This is a large, comfortable VW Turismo van. The price includes transportation, a full breakfast, plus all taxes and fees.

Come join us for a week of fun on the beach. What are you waiting for? We’ve got it all here.

“Cuenca is blessed to have such an artist in Jim Gala. I have played with some of the greats on both sides of the Atlantic, yet I have never heard such a transformative, unique jazz pianist as Jim Gala. Simply put, he’s a true musical genius. Jim expresses fully the beauty, humanity and poignancy of the classic songs he chooses to play. He goes to a depth few musicians ever go.”

–—B. Scott

Wonderful Caregiver/Helper

Aug 22, 2017 |

I am writing to recommend my caregive/helperr Doris. Doris is a young Ecuadorian woman. Doris has cared for me, for over a year, since I suffered a serious illness. I am now able to care for myself and no longer need her assistance. She has done everything for me from helping me after I shower, helping me dress, cleaned my house, purchased my medications and made sure I took them when needed. Literally she will do anything you need and always with a smile. She is always prompt and very trustworthy. Doris doesn’t speak English, but we have communicated very well through google translated. I think of her as my daughter and you will too. Contact me and will arrange for you to meet her.
