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

We (family of 4) had 4 nights here and loved the setting, the authenticity of the place, great breakfast, fabulous location near the beach however we would not accept the casita on the higher ground again. The noise from the traffic both early morning and late at night going up the steep hill behind us was obviously irritating and the... More

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

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
