I've stayed at Luz De Mono many times. After seeing or staying in several different accommodations, I recommend the cabinas up on the hill, or the superior rooms. Don't stay in the ground floor. The staff is very nice - especially Rocio. And the owner is helpful and willing to be flexible to assist you in getting the right room.... More

The amazing lush forest garden surrounding this hotel is full of interesting wildlife - no need to go to Manuel Antonio! Perfectly located at the end of the commercial area but still very near the beach, Luz de Mono offers a tranquil paradise with friendly and helpful hosts. We had an upper storey room, and particularly enjoyed the huge screened... More

I cannot say enough great things about this place. The hotel is beautiful, the owners and the staff are the friendliest people in Montezuma, and the free breakfast is delicious! The wildlife that surrounds this place is quite amazing too. We saw howler monkeys every day, either right outside our window, or just walking out of our room! The property... More

Not a 5 star but the friendly staff, free breaky, awesome assortment of birds, monkeys lizards and clean pool, more than make up for it. Rooms basic but clean and beds are pretty good. Fall asleep every night to the crashing surf and awaken to birds howler monkeys and crickets. Will definitely return. Ample parking and walking distance to all.

More of a hostel feel instead of b&b. great view from the pool and the gardens and paths are beauitful! Came very close to a lot of monkeys! Which was great. But I did see a huge spider and lizard on the ceiling as I was sleeping and it terrified me! Gross! That was the only downside!!

We had a fabulous three night stay here. Room was spacious and clean. Pool area is lovely. Monkeys, squirrels, geckos and loads of birdlife in the grounds. We had been concerned about the lack of air conditioning but this was no problem at all as the rooms were breezy and the ceiling fans very effective. Staff were really friendly and... More

In Montezuma you want to be close to the beach and the small town (actually, about one block) where the restaurants, shops and street crafts vendors are. Luz de Mono is right next to all that, but its surrounding thick jungle garden isolates it from the noise and the hassle. All you hear from your room are the birds and... More

We loved our stay here in a deluxe room with garden view. One whole wall is replaced with windows to look into the garden. From our room and the pool and at breakfast we saw howler and white face monkeys, iguanas, coatis, basilisk lizards and lots of birds. The reception are extremely kind, welcoming and full of good advice. Good... More

The hotel is located by the Montezuma beach. The beach is not swimmable due to rip tides, but it is beautiful none the less. The swimming pool is large enough to swim laps, and was clean. The hotel grounds is like a jungle oasis, with trees, flowers and plenty of wildlife to see. The breakfast included, is a choice of... More
