Just what I needed: beautiful location, directly in front of the beach and ocean, which is unspoiled and not crowded. Olon is a small village with nice people. The Sea Garden House owner is welcoming and accommodating. The rooms have incredible views, allowing you to fall to sleep hearing the waves and smelling the scent of salt air to lull...

This guest house seats on the beach of Olon with outstanding views and just 100 or so meters from water. The rooms are very basic, none of them offer aircon. Beside the location what make a difference here is Rodolfo, the person that runs the guesthouse. He is a very welcoming host. He is great help in organizing anything you...

I booked a room for 3 nights at this hostal at the end of October 2015 for my stay in February 2016. When my husband and I arrived to the place they told us the room was not ready (even though we arrived passed the check-in time) and to wait for about an hour. After we had waited for an...

The lady's room was not given to another person. We always have two rooms at the same price to avoid doble booking. Unfortunately the tree room, did not satisfied the client's taste or fobia. We inmediately found her an alternative despite it was the peak of the highest season and finding a room was a hard task. It is very...

We spent 4 nights in the Heaven room, it's on the 3rd floor of their little tower and has a balcony from where you have the best view. Maria and Rodolpho are gracious hosts and Rodolpho was kind enough to cook us a special vegetarian meal at our last night because it's hard to find fresh Veggies in the local...

Have stayed at the Sea Garden House a few times. Love, love, love it. Great view of the ocean, LoLo and staff are very eager accommodate your every need. Enjoyed a great breakfast and upon our request, a great dinner! Comfortable beds, hot water, excellent fan and the sound of the ocean waves.

My friends and I took the bus from Cuenca to Olon, ~7 hours and spent 3 wonderful days on this beautiful, long beach, even tried surfing. The waves are fairly gentle so it is a good place to learn. The owner of Sea Garden, Rodolfo, is very friendly, helpful, and speaks English. The rooms have private baths, and the Treehouse...

Nice place right in front of the beach! lovely architecture and a nice garden! The rooms are clean and the wooden floors make the hostal cozy. Within 5 minutes you can get to Montañita by local taxi. It is worth it to stay and rest in Olon.

Staying at Sea Garden far exceeded our expectations. I only wish we had eaten more meals there! Fresh seafood dinners expertly prepared with salads and tasty chilean wines were unforgettable and was one of the best dining experiences I've had in Ecuador. Location is right on the beach just outside of the city center, easily walkable from the highway or...

Sympathetic owner, who cooks very good with fresh fish from nearby sea. He speaks A very good english. We feld like family members. And if you like a original coffee than you are right at his house. The location is close to the beach so that you can enjoy your meal with few to the waves. Don't worry about dogs....
