The location of Hotel El Jardin is absolutely perfect! Its walking distance within everything in Montezuma and the beach, but yet tucked away from it all. The property is surrounded by the jungle and the grounds are well taken care of. The pool with 2 levels is so awesome and refreshing...we spent a lot of time in the pool! We... More

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed it - our children loved the pool and it was perfect for us being so close to all the restaurants and not having to drive anywhere to eat/drink/go to the beach/to yoga classes etc...we also saw monkeys from our terrace and the full moon at night from the hammock, so we still...

Wonderful staff , good location . Two nice pools, in an area that has sun and shade . We had two wonderful meals in close restaurants . An easy walk to both . The Zoom boat we took from Jaco was a real fun ride .

We reserved late, so our room was "windowless", but very clean and comfortable. Fridge and a/c were in good order. It may be too noisy for some, but if so, a room at the back should be ideal. We really liked this place - very friendly, very relaxed and what a great pool!

I understand there's a certain amount of insects in that kind of area , however , the place was infested with tiny ants ! When I picked up the toilet paper I was covered in ants ! Only... More

Dear Customer, the description about our house is very clear and says: we do not have a parking,the house is on the top of the property and has not air conditioned. the problem with the wifi is not our fault and dipends from the company who provides the internet service. about the ants,like you said, we are in the jungle...

This is the third year in a row that I have had an extended stay (12 nights) at this hotel, and I will be back again next year. The facility is excellent, the location ideal (close to town, but not too loud), and the staff couldn't be nicer. I feel like I am visiting friends, not staying in a hotel.... More

Stayed here for my birthday and was happy with the hotel. The pool and garden are really nice and tranquil with the surrounding trees and wildlife - we were the only ones in there all morning. Each room has either a terrace or balcony with a hammock and lounger which was a nice touch. The A/C was a luxury for... More

Awesome! Very nice Pool, hosts, location and Suits. Pura Vida, we highly recommend this location when you are in Montezuma! It's really worth the money and it's also possible to get a free koffee in the morning 😄

I've been in the Hotel business 25+ years and rarely write reviews but Hotel El Jardin deserves so much praise. The rooms are super clean and nicely priced. The owners and Staff truly care about service and make a solid connection with guests. The are so genuine and go above and beyond. If you are in Montezuma there is no... More

This place was was a total ripoff. I have travelled extensively and stayed in plenty of places around the world from budget to mid-range. The staff were helpful and friendly, but reception was completely dismissive of our concerns. Nobody was there in the middle of the day to check us in, forcing us to wander around town with our bags... More
