I always say that the people make a place, and this was certainly true at Luz de Mono. The family who owns and runs the hotel were the most genuinely warm we encountered in all of Costa Rica (We had traveled through most of the country.) Although Montezuma, with its hippy vibe, was not our most favorite location in Costa... More

This hotel is very nice if you are looking for a quiet and private place. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean and some of the rooms have balcony so you can see big trees and monkeys and different type of birds. The pool is great, and it is surrounded by beautiful gardens in which during the mornings you can... More

My family and i stayed at Hotel Luz de Mono a few weeks ago. The hotel had clean rooms, spacious bathrooms and a nice pool. What really made this hotel stand out was when we left. I had forgotten an expensive bathing suit in the bathroom. While i was in the airport i sent them an email asking if they... More

We went to Montezuma for the first part of our family vacation. It's a very relaxing paced town even for Costa Rica. That said, relax and enjoy! The room was nicely sized for the three of us. The breakfast was GREAT. You can feed the monkeys and what kid doesn't want to feed a monkey? The pool is perfectly located... More

We had a great stay at this hotel which is really a lot of value for the money! The room we had was very basic, however it was clean and not without its charm. The garden of the hotel is like a little rain forest which gives a really nice atmosphere when walking or having breakfast in the semi-outdoor dining... More

We absolutely loved this hotel! We had a double room on the ground floor which only had a fan but it was cool enough in the evenings. The wildlife in the hotel grounds is amazing. The pool is so lovely and its nice to be able to cool off and also still hear the sound of the ocean. The hotel... More

The hotel has the best location, just a few steps from the beach and surrounded by nature. A nice pool with ocean view. Rooms were neat and fresh. Breakfast is included and it was delicious, plus you get to watch birds and squirrels while having breakfast, I thought it was lovely. The owner was super friendly and definitely made our... More

We planned our stay in Luz de Mono as the "chill- out" part of our Costa Rica adventure, but we were delighted to find a huge variety of wildlife right there, in the "remnant jungle" grounds of the hotel (Howler monkeys, agoutis, iguanas, blue jays,humming birds, cappuchins, possums, black-breasted whistling duck .............). The hotel is small and friendly, with exceptional... More

I stayed at Luz de Mono for two nights last week. My boyfriend and I loved this hotel and wished we stayed longer. The property is gorgeous and looks like a jungle paradise. While eating breakfast you can see the ocean. The rooms are simple, but very clean and nice. Though I wish air conditioning were a choice, it did... More
