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...

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

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
