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

We reserved the hotel based on the pictures and reviews on the internet. It was not what we expected it to be. We have cabin #8, the only one with a private bath which made us at least feel better. The room was too small for 4 people so our two relatives have to chek in to another hotel. Be... More

I have to say the best part of my Costa Rica stay was Montezuma and a big part of it was Luna Llena. The staff Where the best Chris, Milly Inga. Personable, fun and helpful. Very clean and Eco friendly and the kitchen was well setup for anyone who likes to do there own cooking. Thanks again, Jimmy

We had such a wonderful experience in our travels to Montezuma and Luna Llena Hotel during our first trip in June 2009, that we definitely had to do it again...and we did in Jan 2010. This trip we stayed for 10 days instead of just a week and the hotel made us feel like we were family. Milly, Chris and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over New Years and we had a great time! This is more of a backpackers place, so it's not for people who are looking for anything fancy. We really liked the location, the vibe of the place and the people. We stayed in room number 6, which have been refered to as the "honeymoon... More

My husband and I stayed here one night during a trip through Costa Rica. We booked online, and it appeared to be nice. It is in a nice location in Montezuma, but the condition was not that great. I would not recommend this to anyone for the price. We passed back through Montezuma at the end of our trip and... More

We know we are not for everyone. If you need air conditioning don't come to Luna Llena. We are full 10 months out of the year, so many guests do enjoy what we offer. Too bad this guest was not one of them. Smiles from the Fun Crew at Luna Llean Hotel More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel and didn't want to leave it or Montezuma. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the location great, and the vibe relaxing. Just make sure to keep your luggage closed, as mine was visited by a colony of ants who had apparently decided to use one of my sneakers as a nursery.... More
