Very nice mid-ranged priced hotel, excellent common areas with couches, tables and hammocks. Rooms come with a fridge and fan : ) However, if booking ahead, avoid room #4. This room is on the ground floor, right beside the communal kitchen, which opens at 8:00am for you late risers. Our main complaint with this room was that the room above... More

Very big rooms with air condition and fridge. The beds are very comfortable and much better than the standard beds in Costa Rica. The staff was very friendly and had good tips for the area. For relaxing the hammocks in the first floor are the best place. The kitchen was clean and had all things you need for cooking.

When we got to our hotel, an attendant brought us to our room and it was unacceptable. It smelled of mold, the towels were damp and there was some creepy trap door leading to we don't know where. Also, this was a first floor room, so the windows should have been especially secure but there were no bars which is... More

I returned after a previous stay and immediately noticed the investment that has been added to the hotel, a stylish wood assemble of new rooms on the upper level and a fountain in the open space in front of them. I did my Qi Gong and Tai Chi exercises in front of the fountain and had a most befeciary effect... More

I heard beautiful things about Costa Rica: nature, nice people and a peaceful environment to rest and relax. I can say that my friends and I found all this on every place we went, but the best experience we found it on the hotel La Aurora in Montezuma. This hotel is located at the very downtown of Montezuma just a... More

I thought that the La Aurora Hotel was marvelous! My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and thought this was a wonderful hotel. We were there during the high season, yet the place didn't seem cramped, crowded, or noisy. We could hear the ocean from our room which was upstairs. The second floor also had a deck area... More

My sister and I stayed at La Aurora for one night in the month of November. We didn't reserve in advance, we just showed up and selected one from the three rooms that were available. It was probably my least favorite accommodation of the entire trip and not that much cheaper than other places we stayed. We chose a room... More

We booked the rooom directly from the manager .She was extremely kind and sensitive with us. She speaks good english as well as spanish. The room was clean,cosy (wooden with a fan on the ceiling) and big enough for two people with a bathroom ensuite. There were two beds a king size and a small one. You even have a... More
