Clean rooms, working AC, nice pool(bit cloudy, but didn't stop me from swimming in it), friendly staff, perfectly situated from the beach, bars and restaurants. We stayed here for two nights and were pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the rooms along with the early morning coffee served at the front desk. It's about a 9k drive to the reserve... More

Affordable option for basic room with A/C. Lighting, decor and washroom was very dated, but overall clean. I would recommend bringing your own shampoo, conditioner and soap - as well as a towel if you have specific travel needs. Hostesses were very kind and helpful! Mariel changed our sheets because we noticed a couple of ants when we checked in.... More

Went with a group of 6, we stayed at the rooms in the first floor, rooms were clean and spacious. El Jardin and most other hotels in Montezuma aren't your luxury Riu-type hotels. El Jardin is quaint and gives you a comfortable bed for an affordable price. Its located in the heart of Montezuma and is within walking distance to... More

Nice hotel, good view from the up hill bungalow. The bungalow is amazing mainly for a family, very nice, with complete kitchen, lovely bedroom in the second floor and great outdoors, just to see the ocean and to relax. My kid enjoyed it fully, hours and hours in the swimming pool. We are sure to come back in our next... More

We randomly picked this area when we made the drive into Montezuma as it had a pool, was reasonably priced, and was located right behind us. Mariel is the proprietor and was a very gracious hostess. The pool was absolutely perfect, with a smaller jacuzzi pool above it. The jacuzzi wasn't hot, but the jets were nice on the back... More

Stayed in a room up the slope, it's steep but i knew what to expect and the terrace was a real highlight of the property. though they could do a little... More

Initially I called directly to their local phone number, I wanted to book the house but I told their employee about my mom's heart condition. She can't climb stairs. She said the house is at the top of the property, but she still had 2 available rooms OK for my mom. I asked her to book them. But she said... More
