We loved this place. The staff are very helpful and genuine. The sounds of the howlers at odd times in the early AM were a little loud, but we didn't mind.It reminded us that we were in the jungle. The white faced monkeys were all around the property and I could just watch them all day. The breakfast included was... More

Fantastic property tucked away in the jungle but also in the heart of everything in Montezuma. Literally a couple of minutes to the beach and the town. Lovely clean rooms with plentiful hot water. Good wifi connection everywhere. Great pool with sunbeds and resident iguana. Loads of wildlife in the property grounds - every time we walked in or out... More

We were welcomed by monkeys at our arrival. The hotel is inserted in nature, the swimming pool is relaxing and staff is friendly. It is located close to all main spots in town and they provide you guidance on tours and places to visit.

We stayed two nights in this wonderful place. It has all the facilities you need, so near the beach and the center of the village, but you'll enjoy quietnes and you are like in the middle of the jungle. I recommend it¡¡¡

For the price you can't really beat what you get at Luz De Mono. Every morning at 5:30AM we were awoken by the sound of Howler Monkeys screaming outside our window. Then again at 7:00AM we were awoken by the sound of loud Italian tourists outside our window. Totally fair trade, you can't really have one without the other. We... More

It was a nice and cheap place to stay for the time in Montezuma. The hotel is in a quiet part of the village directly into the jungle with a great pool and space for relaxing and it is only 5 minutes walk to the center. We have seen a lot of animals at the hotel area. The breakfast is... More

We stayed here for three nights and wished we could have stayed longer! It is paradise! The hotel has a wonderful garden which is almost a jungle itself and the best part: there are a lot of monkeys!! We saw howler monkeys and capuchin monkeys up close, just by the swimmingpool. They are adorable! The rooms are big and are... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. The best part about this hotel is you are surrounded by nature. We stayed for 2 days and both days had a family of monkeys travel through the resort grounds in the canopies. Fantastic! Can also hear the howler monkey's in the mornings :) Another great thing is the location. Only a... More

Part great, part ok, and part not so nice but glad we stayed here. The manager was a joy to talk to. She was interesting and happy to share information. Interacted with several other staff and they were all nice. Location was great for us. Very close walk to town and very close to beach (you could hear the waves... More

We were two female friends travelling around Costa Rica, and Luz De Mono fitted our needs well. After an initial shock of no window panes in the room, just mesh netting, we quickly realised what a cool place LuzDeMono was to stay. The buildings aren't the prettiest, although the accommodation is in a jungle setting with the rooms being surrounded... More
