This hotel is right in the jungle, which is great for seeing monkeys from the window. The grounds are very nicely kept, and the pool area was nice. It's also just a couple of minutes walk to the beach, and the village. Unfortunately, the girl working there was a bit rude; maybe because the hotel was almost empty and she... More

Living on the Osa Peninsula for 5 years, I'd never been to Montezuma and had heard great things...so....My girlfriend and another friend decided to check it out. What a fun little town! Clean...not even a cigarette butt on the street! I would highly recommend the boat tour for snorkeling and a great day hanging on an island beach! I really... More

Rolled into Montezuma with no reservations and no idea where to stay. We rolled upon Hotel Luz De Mono. The grounds are very well taken care off but it seems like this was once a higher end hotel which has lost something along the way. There was no safe in our room so we had to keep all our valuables... More

Five of us traveled to Montezuma with no reservations and uncertain of where we would stay. Lucky for us we found Luz de Mono. We arrived via boat from Jaco, having stayed the previous week in Manuel Antonio. The staff was extremely accommodating and even let us keep all of our backpacks in the office until our room was available... More

We returned to the Luz de Mono for the third time in August 2008. Each time we return, we find the same warm, friendly service and the beautiful, artistic touches in a tropical setting more inviting. The grounds are well cared for and absolutely beautiful and are alive with millions of monkeys, iguanas, and other critters unknown to the North... More

When we arrived in Montezuma on Sunday afternoon, we did not have a place to stay. A quick trip around town led us to Luz de Mono. The staff members were really friendly and accommodating. The room was fine, but nothing special, aside from a nice hot shower. However, the toilet leaked, the beds were lumpy and worn out and... More

If you look at the hotel website you may be disappointed when you get to the hotel. The description of the rooms and casitas is really not accurate..or at least it wasn't when we staid there. There were no casitas as they were refurbishing them, the hotel rooms were missing many things, but in particular a wardrobe, or even and... More

My wife and I along with another couple rented a casita in March 2006. The lobby and restaurant area are very artistic and unique. Led uphill on a very steep and confusing path even after the fifth or sixth time, we got our first look at it. The "oceanview" consisted of a small sliver of blue visible through the trees.... More

We were not happy with the Luz de Mono. I read a couple other reports in this forum that had positive things to say about the Luz but my husband and I would disagree. The Luz de Mono has a beautiful web site that we felt did not accurately portray the over priced accommodations received. Our jacuzzi tub, advertised as... More
