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

Hear the waves and the jungle while using the in-room wifi. Clean, refreshing place. Could watch monkeys from my bed. Nice and helpful staff. No safe in room but they have a safe at the reception. Good spot in town, right next to the best restaurant, which oddly was a bakery - but actually had beautiful salads with fish. Great... More

Wonderful experience. The perfect combination of tropical forest, beach and resting. A beautiful swimming pool surrounded by the nature and with view to the beach. The location of the hotel is perfect. Good breakfast, which is included. At night, when we went, there was a special BBQ, delicious. We stayed in one of the bungalows with kitchen for two nights....

My family and I travled to Costa Rica 6 years ago, and just went back for another week. We remembered Luz de Mono as being terrific, and so we booked four nights again this trip. You're right in town, but once entering you feel as if you have entered an exotic jungle. When arriving, the owners and staff couldn't be... More

We stayed here for 9 nights in the middle of a long tour. We wanted a hotel with a large pool close to the beach, close to the town, but away from the noise, with big bright rooms, good breakfasts and lovely gardens. Mono de Luz has it all with great staff and a delightful atmosphere. The pool is terrific...a... More

This was our favourite place that we stayed during our three weeks in Costa Rica! The grounds are incredible, and the manager, Lora and her husband make you feel like family when you are there. She loves having kids stay there and will give them bananas to feed the capuchin monkeys who come to visit the breakfast area every morning.... More
