I have to agree the view is great. It's right on the water and there's great place to chill in hammocks. But that is all, The rooms are cramped, the kitchen is very dirty (at least there's free breakfast) and most of all the staff is not pleasant. They are super strict about numerous things (check out time - and... More

it was my favorite hostel in my 2 weeks in Costa Rica, people I meet, the vibe of the place, you would wake up with the sound of the beach, then go on the deck to look at the beach while drinking a free coffee every morning!

We had such a great time here we stayed for a week. Our up stairs room had big windows an a great view over the ocean, the downstairs rooms and dorm looked cramped and a bit dark. Good kitchen, hammocks with great view, friendly staff, our room was neat and clean. The hotel is out of town so you never... More

Dirtiest hostel I've ever stayed in for Costa Rica. The staff isn't very friendly, the bathrooms are disgusting and the bunk rooms are even worse. They had cockroaches falling on our faces in our sleep. I felt so uncomfortable that I didn't sleep and just waited until I could get my deposit back before I hit the road. The inexpensive... More

My then-boyfriend and I stayed at Pensione Lucy in December 2007. It came highly recommended from a friend who travelled through Montezuma a few months before. Our stay at Hotel Lucy was for the most part pleasant. We had one of the interior, street-facing rooms, so I remember it was hot, small and dusty. If I was to return we... More

Montezuma was a stop over for us, we wanted somewhere to get a decent nights sleep for a decent price and that is exactly what we got. The rooms are basic, and quite small, but they have everything you need (bathroom, fan, clean sheets & towels) and between the beach, eating out in the evening and sitting on the cute... More

Don't take the room from street side if possible - cars make horrible sound. Don't leave valuables in your room - they might get stolen like everywhere in Costa Rica. Good people staying, nice kitchen to do your own food. Stuff is nice, except the night shift guy who is total d***. Cheapest place in Montezuma, great view. Come here... More

I loved staying at Hotel Lucy. It's a 2 minute walk down the road from Montezuma, so a lot quieter than the other options in town. It's right next to the beach and you always hear the soothing sounds of the waves. The hotel owners are exceptionally friendly and will help you with anything (they only speak Spanish).The rooms and... More
