This little hotel was a great choice for our trip! We traveled with some of our family members and needed a clean, nice, but affordable place. We did have shared bathrooms, but it was just down the hall and there were not many other travelers. Our shared balcony with nice seating was a relaxing area to sit and watch the... More

Pros: great ambiance, great view of the ocean, nature at its best, outside the busy mainstreet of monteczuma Cons: a little of a hike up hill of main street; early howling monkeys waiking you up in the morning (this is good/bad base on expectations).

Highlights of this place: -great views, nice common lounge areas, surrounded by very pretty gardens - informative, friendly staff -wildlife can be seen on grounds - very short walk into town Why we wouldn't stay there again: -This place seems to attract a younger, partying crowd. My husband and I aren't exactly over the hill (we're both 32 years old),... More

Okay anyone who says this hotel is not great...obviously does not appreciate anything to do with the forest...and in my mind, is a bit of a snob...Yes this place is no Four Seasons, but when you stay at a place like that...what do you really learn about where you are anyway? This hotel was so great. I was backpacking with... More

Really enjoyed my visits during the day at this hotel. The lady who ran it was very nice, and she let us check in several hours early. She held our bags, and recommended some stuff in town for us. Parts that were great: 1) Being in the trees with the monkeys was fun. You pretty much rent out a room... More

Costa Rica is one of those destinations that has been on my to-go list forever and finally traveling there was everything I imagined it would be. Waterfalls, check. Jungle-like setting, check. Tons of mosquito bites, oh-boy-check! Delicious local cuisine with scrumptious plantains, check. Snorkeling, check. Beauitful beaches, check!! After getting feedback on where to go in Costa Rica, we decided... More

For an environmentally-friendly place, Luna Llena delights, however, you need to expect no luxuries: there are shared bathrooms (no paper toilettes), communal kitchen areas and no air conditioning. I stayed in room #4 and needed to take a shower before bed in order to stay cool throughout the night. The staff is very accomodating, the grounds are lush and wildlife... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed 3 nights at Luna Llena in Montezuma, and it was absolutely incredible. We stayed in #6, which was amazing and had a spectacular view of the ocean. The people we met there were all really nice and the whole place had a very relaxing, laid back feel, just the way a place in paradise... More
