The room was great. Good hot water and solid a.c. the pool area is tranquil and you can bring beers by the pool. We even saw a monkey day two in the trees by the pool. Great pizzeria across the street. The true treasures of el jardin are flora and mariel the two beautiful ladies who will make sure you... 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

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

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

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...

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
