My husband and I stayed here in a double room (with shared bathroom) for 2 nights and unfortunately we were glad it wasn't longer! It was a real shame that we had a bad experience as I had read such positive reviews on trip advisor. But here goes: - The Room: we paid extra for a sea-view room but really... More

Though you have to climb another "Cliff" to reach it, Luna llena was a perfect chill place to stay in Montezuma, very comfortable with the best view ever on the sea and - sometimes - animal company. Staff helpful, nice facilities and astonishing location - litterraly on the Cliff.

Romantic rooms with a beautiful view on the ocean. Warm welcome and very nice talk with the keeper, Angel. We would recommend this charming place among wild animals. We were here for Easter. You needed to book at this period. We hope that we will come again.

This hostel was simple but was perfect for us (2 adults and 1 baby). Tha hot water was not hot all the time, but the kitchen and living room was perfect to cook and chiil. Je recommande cet auberge a tous les voyageurs qui recherche la simplicité.

The good: location was nice because of the view, and you're basically in the forest so that gives it a nice feel. The bad: Great seeing monkeys and the wildlife, but the rooms don't have adequate netting so you end up being destroyed by mosquitos and wake up to bugs crawling all over you. The parking spaces are not suitable... More

I stayed at the Luna Llena for about five days and four nights. I enjoyed my time there. For a hostel, they were adequate in their modern conveniences: hot water for the showers and wifi in the common area. The kitchen is communal and supplied well with cooking supplies like pots and pans, dishes, etc. Not much by way of... More

Luna Llena is a lovely hostel/hotel right up the road from downtown Montezuma. It's set on the side of hill with jungle and ocean views. There's a main house and then other cabins/rooms scattered about the side of the hill property. It has a really magical and whimsical feel to it. While I was there the guests were friendly and...

I stayed at Luna Llena unexpectedly my last night in Costa Rica. I had been staying in Santa Teresa for most of my trip and decided to head to Montezuma for the waterfalls and change of scenery. Luckily Luna Llena had openings in the 5 person dorm. It was a beautiful hotel/hostel tucked in a jungle mountain side with incredible... More

The common space and kitchen are great! Really inviting and homey. The kitchen can get quite busy at night with everyone making food, but it's fun. The wifi is great and they have lots of places to just relax and the main area has great views! However the rooms themselves are overpriced for what you are getting. The rooms attached... More
