We stayed here on a recent trip because my fiance had stayed there years ago with some friends. His experience was a bit different. I have no complaints about the hotel. The staff was great, the accommodations were decent and we were only there for 2 nights. The last time he went, he met some awesome people that were also... More

We were deposited on the beautiful, but somewhat littered, volcanic and sandy beach (picture below) in Montezuma by a water taxi from Jaco one morning. That boat trip was an adventure in itself because no docks or marinas are involved. The crew wraps some luggage in big plastic bags and lugs it onto the boat by wading through the surf.... More

This hotel saved us from a horrendous stay about 100m away. The staff were friendly, the amenities were sufficient and it's well located, although montezuma is small so it's not big deal. Only downside it didn't come with breakfast. And I love breakfast.

The Hotel Aurora is far enough away from the noise of Chico's, but really close to both beaches and the main market. There is a funky, small, communal kitchen that is poorly equipped (no spatula?). Our room #8, on the second floor was very roomy with a separate little room with a table, benches and a fridge. The main bedroom... More

I tried to book direct but received no response to various phone calls and emails. Finally made the reservation through booking.com, and was pleasantly surprised when they actually had our booking on our arrival! Unfortunately we were placed in a room other than the one with 'Ocean View' which I had booked and paid extra for. To be fair we... More

I think I am a pretty tolerant traveler and I think I keep my expectations reasonable. I have to tell you that this was the worst place ever. I agree the gals at the front desk were very helpful and personable. This place has paper thin walls. We could here everything. There were a number of German young men who... More

Hello Susan thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear that the Junior Suite you booked during 3 days with the big bath and bedroom on the second floor with the two big windows was not liked by you. It would have been our pleasure to help you with another similar room if you would have shown... More
