This place was a great experience with excellent service. Nestled in the jungle, near the end of the main part of town, yet only a couple minutes walk to everything you need. Laura and her husband were gracious and helpful hosts. Laura is a gem. Howler monkeys, capuchins, and iguanas all made the stay so much better. We stayed in... More

Really linked this hotel in the funky town of Montezuma. The property is set in a beautiful mature jungle that really feels exotic. We stayed overnight as we had to catch the boat back to Jaco in the morning. Laura was super friendly and helpful with our questions. Our room was ample with a mini fridge and felt very private...

We stayed at the Hotel Luz de Mono for five nights, although we had originally only booked for three nights...Lora and her team were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of the suites (upper rooms) and found it perfect for our needs, although I would agree with other reviews that better linens would make the experience even... More

Conveniently located in the centre of Montezuma town, just steps away from the beach in the forest, Luz de Mono is the place to stay if you are looking to be near the Montezuma amenities but still away from noise and crowds. We stayed there during our honeymoon when we did a road trip in CR. The place is not... More

This is the second time in consecutive years that we have had the pleasure of staying here at Luz de Mono. The deluxe rooms on the first floor are delightful, with high ceilings and fans with screened windows to let the air flow through. A lovely pool area with views out to sea and only a few steps from the... More

Reasons to stay here: - steps from the beach - right in Montezuma, but away from the busy and noisy strip - amazing wild life including howler monkeys, white faced monkeys and iguanas. - clean rooms - helpful and friendly staff: the people at the front desk were personable and extremely helpful. they stored our valuables in their safe &...

The grounds are absolutely amazing, the pool is great and you're right near the beach, indeed the sound of waves can be heard which for me was a delight. I found the staff to be very pleasant, friendly and helpful. There was a brief loss of internet which they fixed promptly (every single place I stayed in in Costa Rica... More

This is our 5th year staying at Luz De Mono. The location is right at the north end of town and is convenient to everything in montezuma. They have their own secure parking lot for your rental car or quad. The hotel itself feels like it is located in a wildlife preserve. The grounds are filled with Capuchin and Howler... More

We came here on a tour and the owners who just purchased the hotel were very welcoming! Our rooms were nice and clean and the hotel had several pools you can enjoy when it gets to hot! The highlight for this place was the amount of wild life that came through the trees we had monkeys come by multiple times... More

I've stayed at Hotel Luz de Mono twice now, both times with a group that rented out the entire resort, so my experience may be a bit different than if I'd been traveling on my own. That said: the property is breathtaking, a magical jungle wonderland built into a steep hillside peppered with lush vegetation and inhabited by the most... More
