Their tagline goes "Best deal in La Ventana", but we think it should just be "Best in La Ventana"... Sure, it's an absolute steal in value, but even if priced the same as other places, we still think it's the best... Lovely & thoughfully appointed rooms & communal kitchen, perfect location away from the crowd, and awesome hosts Char &... More

Stayed at the Downwinder for 10 days recently and I can't think of anything that I'd change other than staying longer! Wayde, Char, and Rowdy were all incredibly hospitable and really took care of us. The beds were very comfortable, lots of hot water for the shower, and the communal kitchen was well stocked. This place is an amazing value... More

During our stay the topic of discussion seemed to come to how amazing this place was! Our room was spotless. We had our own shower and toilet. Towels were provided. A large jug of purified water was in our room along with a fridge and coffee maker. The bed was super comfortable and we were offered extra blankets if we... More

We visited La Ventana/El Sergento for the first time this past January. We happened upon the DownWinder Inn after a conversation with a local, while trying to find a last minute place to stay. We lucked out and scored a room for 2 nights... which was lucky, considering they are regularly booked. The rooms were great with appropriate ammenities. The... More

Because the price is so reasonable, I was expecting something far less in quality. The rooms are smallish but very nice and cozy. They provide bottled water free in the room and there's a little fridge and coffeemaker. The shared kitchen/dining/sitting area is very nice and gives you an opportunity to get to know your neighbors. The real reason this... More

This was our 3rd stay at the DownWinder and we are looking forward to coming back. The rooms are clean and comfortable with adequate space. Each room has a mini fridge and coffee maker, but the community fridge and kitchen are well appointed and appreciated. It's located just north of La Ventana...away from the noise of the town. Views of... More

This small six room property was a great place to stay. Would certainly stay again. Rowdy, wins "The best host award", for being so genuinely kind and gracious and immediately makes you feel welcome. He was quick to provide anything we needed and had lots of advice on all of our questions and helped make arrangements via his wide array... More

Learned of the Downwinder via word of mouth in La Ventana and our stay could not have been better! Near the end of our honeymoon, this Inn was exactly what we were looking for!

I have been traveling to the area for 7 years windsurfing, Downwinder inn is a new hotel in the LaVentana/El Sargento area. It is located outside of town away from the noise and hustle.
