Yes, definitely go there! Even if you think of spending a bit less, it's worth not saving on this place. In the end, the price is okay anyway. You get a really nice and spacious room in the middle of the "jungle" one minute from a nice beach with big waves. Very clean rooms, very nice place, helpful staff and... More

If you want to stay in a jungle surrounded by cappuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, iguanas, squirrels, birds and the sort and want a private cabin and not some fancy resort, than this is the place for you. We ended up staying at the cabin at the top of the hill. It had a little slice of ocean view and it... More

It's a Jungle out there... And the jungle was what made it special for us. The land area that makes up the hotel environs are magnificent... beautiful gardens and canopied rain forest full of interesting flora and fauna.. We rented a casita up the hill and felt like we were back to nature. Not fancy but the casita was comfortable... More

We paid $66 US for a room. The location near the beach and another traveler's recommendation sold us. The pool is a bonus. And at dusk, Capuchin monkeys come to play near the pool in the trees above. What's not to love? Breakfast is mediocre and basic, but the coffee is good. Watch out for the birds that occasionally dive... More

Montezuma has plenty of places to stay but this place was a hidden paradise. The rate was 55 per night with breakfast included(great food). The pool area was so secluded and peaceful. I could have stay there for a week.

This run hotel, that is very close to the beach, situated in a forest area with lots of wildlife - white-faced capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, acouti and lizards. The rooms are large and clean. There is a ceiling fan, and fridge. Breakfast is included but not very filling. We loved listening to the wildlife and ocean at night as we... More

We would thoroughly recommend this hotel. We are a middle aged English couple who had 2 weeks holiday in Costa Rica and returned home 2 days ago. We stayed at Luz de Mono 4 nights. We loved going to sleep with the sound of the waves, monkeys and wildlife. We did have a bat in our room one day which... More

We stayed in room 7, one of the upstairs suites. It was clean, very spacious for 2 people, and overlooked the gardens/jungle. There is no air conditioning in the rooms but the ceiling fan provided more than enough air circulation to keep us cool at night. The small fridge was also convenient. The rooms are surrounded by gardens and jungle... More

Once you get there, you are home free. We stayed in room #3, no TV no AC = peace and nature! Clean rooms and quarters, friendly staff and good food (breakfast and Jungle BBQ – flavor of the day). If you are looking for a quiet place to spend a few days while enjoying the beach, pool and Montezuma restaurants... More
