I have stayed at el jardin twice and will definitely return; great service from the girls at the reception and several options for different types of room / cost. Great for single traveler, couple or groups. Rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean, with hammocks outside. 2 beautiful pools and Jacuzzi with waterfall and garden atmosphere with plenty of privacy on... More

We were so pleased staying at El Jardin. I lived in Montezuma and wanted to be close to town. We stayed in an upstairs room, the room was very clean, great hot water system, private hammock and view of ocean and pool. The staff were great and accomodating. Swimming in the pool each morning and afternoon was wonderful. Will definitely... More

This is the worst hotel I have stayed during my trip to Costa Rica! Insects in bed, reception is not nice or welcoming, wifi barley works and the pool is not really clean. It's an ok hotel but for the price way overcharged! I stayed in hostels nicer than this. Everything seems old. You can find better places to stay!

This hotel is right in the 'thick' of Montezuma, the only couple of things I would fault is the small double beds and not really having much of a view of the sea, but since it is quite far back from the sea, it wasn't really expected. each room has their own hammock and outdoor seating area which is really...

Stayed there last month and am a bit baffled at the other reviews .. great place, friendly people, quiet, right in the heart of town, value and you get your own nice big room and hammock who cares about breakfast?

I did not know that Hotels without breakfast even exist. Isn't there an international definition? The room was small but clean with a very loud a/c. Nice pool an Garden. Overpriced (95$ for 2 adults and 2 kids without breakfast and no secured parking) We expected more. For us it was a late rescue option for the night, so it... More

We appreciate your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed the tropical gardens and our swimming pool with Jacuzzi that is unique in this area and the cleanliness of the hotel and our rooms. Unfortunately, we cannot offer breakfast because there is no restaurant in our hotel, that information is on our website. We do offer coffee and cookies every... More

This is a wonderful hotel right in downtown Montezuma. The rooms are spaced out in various buildings throughout a beautiful garden. Incredible pool. Very clean, spacious rooms. Grounds are well maintained. Overnight security. Friendly and helpful staff!

We stayed here two years ago and enjoyed our stay at the Hotel. It is a lovely here and so much to do in the area. Natural waterfalls and bush walks to Yoga and cooking lessons and visiting monkies. The beaches are ok but not always safe. We were swimming at the beach and were almost knocked over by the... More

We stayed two nights at the El Jardin at the end of April. The wonderful reception woman, Marielle let us check in early. She was so helpful and kind. Anytime we had a question about Montezuma, she was our "go to" person. Our room was extremely clean. It was SO hot when we arrived in Montezuma. The air conditioning in... More

The staff was kind, the pool was amazing, but the rooms were just so so. We were able to see lots of wildlife. Monkeys in the trees around the pools and lots of pretty birds in the beautiful landscape. The rooms were just ok. Beds were a bit uncomfortable, but the rooms were clean. For a 1-2 night stay in...
