This is one of uur top locations for sportief wildlife in Costa Rica. We saw a lot of howler monkeys, capucins, agouti, coati, squirls, iguanos, butterflies,... Good locatid near the beach of montezuma and the little Town. Also there is a good atmosphere in and around the hotel. The bad thing is That the rooms are overpriced because they are... More

We stayed for 2 nights here. The room was cute and clean. There is no AC, but the fan keeps you cool at night. It is just steps from the beach as well as restaurants. About 15 min walk to the waterfall. Breakfast is included and one night we were there, they had a BBQ. It was good food. The... More

We stayed 6 days at this Hotel. Lora, Louis, their family and staff went out if their way to make you feel at home. The rooms were clean and simple and you had several daily options for breakfast which was included with your stay. The abundance of wildlife was incredible. At times I felt as though we were staying in... More

This hotel is so cute... The grounds are beautifully maintained... Nicer than some of the expensive resorts I've stayed at in Thailand! The rooms are huge with large mesh windows - no glass anywhere so bring your ear plugs if you're a light sleeper cos it gets noisy in the jungle! Breakfast is wonderful with a choice of 5 options...

When we arrived in the city, every one told us not to go to the hostels on the beach "not safe".. We decided to stay one night in this more expensive hotel and we loved it. In the afternoon you can swim in the swimming pool with monkeys passing in the trees ... We loved it!

We stayed almost a week in Luz de mono and loved it, peaceful location albeit being a few steps away from downtown Montezuma and the beach, lush green surroundings, capuchin monkeys dropping in at their leisure, iguanas here and there.... Just gorgeous! The hosts were extremely helpful in times of need and always ready to advise when sought out. I... More

We checked out of the horrendous Amor de Mar and thankfully into Luz de Mono. Great package with pool and breakfast included, plus literally across from the beach. But what sold it was Jeff, the nicest and most helpful guy. Always smiling and ready to help if you need anything. This hotel is wonderful, you see so much wildlife and... More

Wow! What a place! The casita was perfect! We saw plenty of howler monkeys on the trees around us, then saw some white face monkeys near the reception area! Service, food, location was absolutely wonderful!

This hotel is the best! I stayed with my six year old daughter back in April and six months after she keeps telling me it was her best trip ever. She is begging me to come back, which I plan to do as soon as possible. This is a great hotel for families and/or couples. Rooms are spacious, clean and... More

I must say, I loved my staying in Luz del mono. The hotel is divided in one main building, where there are the reception and the restaurant and other buildings with the rooms. These are 1 minutes walk, in a path in the middle of trees and flowers, from the breakfast area or the pool. We chose a twin room,... More
