We planned to stay 5 nights at Three Monkeys and left after one! The welcome was terrible. The woman who we still don't know who she was or her name brought us to the room and was absolutely unable to give any information on activities and local transport! She couldn't speak a word of English and was really not helpful... More

To all travelers! Montezuma is a charming little town with a lot of wildlife and several beaches. The hotels are not at all run down. We doubt that this couple ever even stayed at our hotel. However, we hope they had a good stay in Santa Theresa. BR Cecilia More

Had a lovely week in Montezuma in the three monkeys. Such a warm welcome and the owners were super nice to us all the time we were there. So relaxed, quiet and yet you have everything you need. If you need anything there's always someone to help and advise. I'd definitely stay again. The walk down is easy and it's... More

Wolf is a very interesting man once you get him talking and Cecillia is very kind. They aren't set up for breakfast yet, but their cabins are well maintained clean, spacious and simple. White walls, comfy memory foam mattresses and the most important part - air conditioning and a pool. We spent 2 nights here and would stay here again.... More

Nice small hotel run by a friendly austrian/swedish couple. Large, pleasant rooms with a/c and terasse with a view on the garden, the trees and a may be glimpse of the ocean between the trees. Pretty pool.About a (steep) mile from the village center & the beaches. Wifi is not very stable. Parking on premises.

First of all, let me start by saying all rooms have AC!! You may think this isn't a big deal, but I went to Montezuma in Feb/March and you are drenched in sweat every second of the day. The last thing you want is to sleep like that. After switching from a nightmare hotel, we were welcomed with open arms... More

Duplexes on a hill overlooking jungle and ocean. Each building has it's own outdoor furniture and hammock. I spent a lot of time in the hammock waiting for the hummingbirds who come to feed on the flowering plants. Strong wi-fi and water pressure. Hosts were kind, helpful, and multilingual.

Comfortable and clean room in a nice, very wellkept green garden with an ocean view. You have your own porch outside and a wonderful pool. A 10-15 minute walk downhill to the village and beaches, easy to catch a ride going uphill. Very friendly and helpful owners.

I just want to recommend this fantastic place to stay at when going to Montezuma, Costa Rica. Nice and clean rooms/houses all with private verandas giving a fantastic view over the bay and in the middle of the garden you find the swimming pool. The hosts, a very nice couple, give you a very warm welcome. They also know the... More

Lovely houses with beutiful garden and swimming pool and hammocks with a look to the ocean. Location is ca 1 km uphill from center. Bring a torch if you're staying late and walking, cause the road is partly not illuminated.
