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...

This is our 5th trip to Montezuma and we always stay at El Jardin. Simple place but all the basics work well. Friendly staff, gorgeous pool and grounds, center of town, a short walk to beautiful beaches.. As always surrounded by amazing Costa Rican wildlife. Anyone know where to get an alarm clock that makes the sound of the local... More

This was our fourth visit to Montezuma and Hotel El Jardin. The proximity to town and the layout of the grounds (gardens and pools) make El Jardin very appealing. Rooms are a little dark and sparse but the large porches outside the rooms make up for some minor flaws. The pool is great to relax in after a day of... More

Montezuma , is always a great place for vacation, other times we had chosen differently, we are happy to have come to the Jardin, nice hospitality, friendly staff and very professional. And it is a step away from the beaches and the "pueblo" experience that I would do it right away, too bad that holidays do not last enough

Stayed here for a night. Very nice pool & garden area, but the room was very unexpted. Ok for a night, but a bit outdated / dusty / in areas even dirty. Location is however very good as you are right in the heart of town, close to beach and all other places you want to be at. Staff is... More

Dear Customer, Thank you for your feedback We are very pleased you enjoyed our pool and our tropical garden. Unfortunately, in the summer/dry season, it is impossible to eliminate the dust in a village with unpaved roads. It is a common problem! We wait for you during the Green season, which is equally beautiful, without any dust . Best Regards... More

Stayed once again for 6 days days at El Jardin on this trip to Montezuma. This was our fourth visit with them and there is a reason. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The grounds are impeccably kept. As their name implies it is truly a beautiful garden. Every morning we enjoyed a leisurely start to the day with... More

Two friends and I (all in our early 20's) stayed here for a few nights while we were traveling in Costa Rica and overall we were pretty disappointed with our experience. We stayed in a private villa at the top of the hill which was absolutely beautiful: we had a full bathroom, kitchen, living room, patio with lounge chairs and... More
