We have been there twice, and love this hotel and this little Montezuma village. Hotel rooms are basic, but spacious and clean. Windows don't have glasses, so in the room you can hear ocean waves, birds and howler monkeys. The garden is lovely, the pool well-maintained and from the pool area you have a view to the ocean. The staff... More

I spent 6 nights at Luz de Mono from January 9th to 15th, just wish I could have had longer. Laura, Luis, Suzanna and all the staff were so superb. I was on my own and Laura and Suzanna couldn't have been more helpful and friendly especially when I found I had problems with my next hotel booking, Laura made... More

I just returned from 10 days in CR and have been anxious to provide a review in support of Luz de Mano. This was easily my favorite experience during my 10 days…. not the best room of my trip, but as far as budget hotels go, it was definitely a positive experience that exceeded expectations. My thanks to the staff—... More

Laura provided excellent service that made our stay marvellous.It was easy to witness her professional management skills by the excellent care that is provided here. The rooms were kept clean, the service girls worked well together and were able to tidy the room up quickly. We also stayed two nights in the cabins and were surprised to see the girls... More

We stayed in a cabin, in the jungle, behind the central building. It was an experience! Not for everyone, but we loved it - we had a blue jay nesting in the roof of our cabin, who was clearly unimpressed with lights being on after sunset! The bed was not the most comfortable, but everything was clean and the hotel... More

If you´re traveling to Costa Rica you´re probably a nature lover and you won´t mind howler monkeys waking you up at the break of dawn. It is one of the highlights of this wonderful hotel in Montezuma. Very close to the beach and with lovely gardens and a pool to relax after coming back from nature walks. I will return... More

The location is perfect, so close to the beach! The swimming pool is in the perfect spot for chilling after a long day in the beach or a walk in the mountain. The staff is super helpful and friendly. Montezuma is 30 min away from Santa Teresa beach or Cabuya beach, both beautiful places to visit. We'll come back soon!!

Warning to anyone looking for a luxurious place: this hotel is not for you. But if you truly want to experience the true Costa Rica, you will love Luz de Mono. We rented a bungalow, which offers more privacy as well as the convenience of a kitchen -- which we didn't use because there are so many great restaurants in... More

Twelve rooms in a storehouse and more in a tremendous natural park. Only 300 m from bus station, therefore no transfer offered. Good breakfast selection with pacific view in a nice open hall setting. Nice pool environment. Some days they offer BBQ. You cannot avoid to live with geckos in the room. No air-condition

This unusual hotel (which we found by accident, arriving late in town with no booking) offers a setting that is very close to living in a jungle, with wildlife practically underfoot at every turn of the path and neighboring cottages almost invisible through the dense foliage. Although the cottages themselves are nothing fancy, the price is very reasonable and they... More
