At Villa Montana Beach Resort, there’s no shortage of room for beach-bumming and sunbathing. In fact, this Puerto Rico property’s shore goes on for literal miles, meaning that you can shake out your towel wherever you want. And that’s not all you can do to make the most of the hotel’s ample amount of coast. There’s a Guest Service Manager on hand who can’t wait to set you up on your next sun-drenched seaside adventure, whether horseback riding, snorkeling, fishing or diving in the nearby reef.
Prefer to picnic in the beachfront gazebo? Done. Attend a beach bonfire with s’mores? The hotel’s got your back. If none of those choices fulfills your idea of beachfront bliss, then rent a cruiser or surf the Caribbean waves. And if you didn’t come for the beach at all, simply step off of it. This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice Award 2016 winner also holds two swimming pools, multiple tennis courts, a gym and two restaurants, one a Wine Spectator favorite. How’s that for choice?
Rooms, suites and villas
Villa Montana rooms are decorated in the Caribbean-plantation style and painted artistically in tropical and earthy tones. Terra cotta floors the main area, and uniquely detailed tiling, the bathroom. Enjoy ultra-luxe bedding, thanks to Egyptian-cotton sheets and down-filled comforters.Superior rooms, on the ground floor and with a private terrace, and Deluxe Cliffside rooms, on the second and third floors and boasting a balcony, both range from 300 to 400 spacious square feet. Suites are found on the ground floor and hold a living room, kitchenette and terrace. These accommodations all come with a queen bed.For the most space, the villas boast two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, one with an additional queen or two twins), plus a fully equipped kitchen, laundry area and a terrace.
You can’t go wrong with either of the restaurants here, overseen by Caribbean Award-winning Executive Chef Jeremie Cruz. Eclipse is a 2015 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner whose walls open to the sunny surroundings, with a menu of grilled seafood, pizzas wood-fired in an oven that can reach more than 800 degrees, plus other dishes that draw on ingredients from Puerto Rico’s Northwest. “O” Restaurant and Lounge turns its focus to Northern Africa and Asia, including Japan, Thailand and India. Here, sip a ginger margarita, or pick from choices that include bahn mi, sashimi and samosas.
Villa Montana is along literal miles of beach, so your biggest decision here will be which to try first: surfing, snorkeling, fishing or diving (there’s a great reef near the shore, with wrecks just an easy drive away). Then again, you could also horseback ride on the sand or try something completely different, like windsurfing or kite surfing. Or, you could hop over to the tropical rainforest for a romp around the ravines, say, zip lining or canyoneering. Golf packages are available nearby, too, and if you come between January and March, you may be able to go whale watching.
How to Get There
I want to start out by thanking the entire staff In all aspects of this Beautiful Resort. From the minute I arrived at the beginning of my stay to the very end.

I had a great experience and can’t thank you guys enough. The wedding was amazing everyone can’t stop talking about it thanks you guys You are the best!!!
I highly recommend the villa Montana beach resort to anyone anytime they really made my fantasy wedding come to life out of 5 stars I give you a perfect 10!
We were here to attend a wedding in July. While we found the grounds, room and beach lovely, we found the service a bit lacking. Not at the restaurant...that was great, but I would ask for something from the cleaning crew and it was usually forgotten. Found it hard to get in touch with front desk when we had an issue. Feel if management could be friendlier and more attentive and put more attention to detail, this would be a gem!
Beautiful 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upgraded with private plunge pool villa, clean, close to everything.
Good housekeeping service, all the necessary things at hand. On this visit everything was perfect, we,definitively, hope to be back soon.
