My friend and I stayed here in April. We stayed in the high bungalow however moved down to the pool area as this particular bungalow did not have AC. I must have missed that in the description. The pool area was perfect.. We loved the location and the front desk Mariel and Tatyana really made the experience. They were very... More

We recently made our way by car to Montezuma. We found El Jardin snuggled into the side of the hill on the south end of town. Our thanks to Tatiana who was so helpful not only to us but to anyone coming by. She was speaking English which she learned on her own, showed me places to visit on her... More

After being extremely disappointed and ripped off at el banano down the street we found our paradise in Montezuma. Incredible location, fabulous staff and practically private pools for each room. The gardens are beautifully manicured and the rooms are quite comfortable. For a few dollars extra you can rent suits overlooking montezuma and the beach. This place is quite romantic... More

my friend and I were backpacking through Costa Rica staying mostly in hostels...this was to be our big "splurge". It was right in the centre of the town (which is small) so the location was great and everything you could need was walking distance (supermarket, restaurants, tour bookings, waterfalls) The rooms were clean and comfortable and air conditioned which was...

My husband and decided to take a day trip to Montezuma. We were just looking for an inexpensive room to rest while we explored. The El Jardin fit the bill. If you're looking for all kinds of amenities. This is not the place for you (no tv, phone etc.) but it is clean, comfortable very convenient to downtown and our... More

Staying at El Jardin was very comfortable and comforting. Mariel and Tatiana took care of all my requests with ease. When I requested to move my room off the street I was taken care of in a very generous prompt way! The room I was moved to was quite comfortable for my needs and had a fabulous view. The pool...

This is just what TRipadvisor is all about. Knowledge about Costa Rica is lacking in the UK so when we wanted to extend our intense parrot birding tour by a restful beach TA was the place to look. And here we are, 6 days chilling, Imperial beer in hand, on the the hillside watching the conures, parakeets, pelicans, grackles and... More

We came to montezuma with no place to stay. Everywhere we went was booked. Whe we came to the Hotel El Jardin the owner said he was also full. The owner made a few phone calls and hooked us up with a place. He then took us in his car and drove us to the next hostel. I Tried to... More
