My husband and I stayed her for our honeymoon the last week in February 2005. The property is beautiful and you have an up close view of the volcano. We stayed in one of the newer bungalow which sat on a small pond (we were later told these were suites). The rooms were very clean and the linen was up... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in February, 2005 and after spending a week in Manuel Antonio, at La Mansion Inn, we were mortified when we arrived here. The service, to start was horrible. I waited in the lobby for at least 15 minutes before being acknowledged, finally handed our room key and was pointed to our room up the... More

I really liked Montana de Fuego. We had a suite. The rooms were very nice and the beds were comfortable. They were adding a little lake to the back part of the suite and they are still constructing parts of the grounds but they only started making noise at around 9 when people were already long gone. The breakfast was... More

Arrived at Montana de Fuego, and the grounds looked lovely. Heavy security at gate- armed guards a little weird. The scene in the lobby was chaotic. Phones ringing off the hook, all ignored by employees chatting amongst themselves, guests being ignored, people arguing, a real scene. Eventually got checked in, went to room and it was a shack. I have... More

We stayed at Montana de Fuego for 2 nights during the 1st week of July. We intended to stay for 3 but checked out early. We stayed at Punta Islita on the Pacific Coast, which is another class of hotel, and Orquideas Inn in Alajuela on par with what Montana de Fuego should be, and enjoyed them much more. Our... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on a road trip from San Jose to see the volcano and La Fortuna Falls. If I had to plan it again, I would have stayed another night. This hotel was our second choice as we arrived at Tabacon with no reservation and they were full. We then drove to this hotel... More

We spent 5 nights in deluxe bungalow and thought is was perfect for our needs. I deliberately chose the smaller resort feel and the private space of a bungalow over the large hotel like structure at Tabacon. THE RESORT: Montana has stunning volcano views on one side and a rainforest canyon on the other. The hotel is in the safe... More
