My boyfriend and I stayed in the room by the street. It would be noisy to sleep in the room during the day but at night the town was quite and we loved sitting on our porch area people watching. This hotel is in an awesome location. Extremely close to town. The town is about the size of a large... More

This was a great place to stay while in montezuma. Right in the centre of town. Tatiana and Muriel at the front desk helped us with planning our trip, and were very knowledgable and friendly. Even though this hotel is set on the busy main intersection, once you are around the pool, you feel like you are in a secluded... More

I would highly recommend this hotel to others. It was clean and had good amenities for the price. I was most impressed with the staff. They were very kind and helpful. It was a pleasure to stay at Hotel El Jardin!

We stayed here for one night. The hotel has a pretty setting and the rooms have great terasses with garden view. Cute but small pool. Room was also small. A/c noisy & not very effective. Wifi poor. Great location, walking distance to nice restaurants & beaches.

Nice hotel in Montezuma. Value for money. Nice flowers and swimming pool. No parking avaiable and not many places for safe parking on the main street. Nearby restaurants are excellent. Best beaches are in walking distance. poor wifi.

Reasonable, well priced hotel in the heart of Montezuma. Our room was clean and had a great view (with a lovely hammock on the balcony). The pool area was fantastic and the grounds were tended to constantly by the staff. We ended up staying here twice as we liked it that much. I couldn't recommend this place more.

First of all, Montezuma is a low-key lifestyle. The town itself consists of like 15 shops, 6 restaurants, a handful of hotels/hostels, and some hammocks. Nobody in that town is in a rush. And that's why it's a gem. Granted, you may run out of things to do if you're looking for a thrill a minute sort of spot, but... More

I totally agree with the review posted by SamakHob. I go to Costa Rica every year and always spend time in my favorite town, Montezuma. El Jardin is my favorite because of its proximity to el centro, the beauty of its grounds (2 pools and a jacuzzi in a multi-level jungle setting), but especially because of Mariel and Tatiana, who...

The location of this place is just fantastic since you are right smack in the middle of the main street in town. Close to EVERYTHING you need like the beach, the local bars, the waterfall and the supermarkets. Only a block away from the local artisans too which sell so much cool stuff :) Mariel and Tatiana at the front... More

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
