I cannot recommend this place highly enough: a truly beautiful guest house set in lush tropical gardens, clean and spacious rooms with their own private verandas and a splendid pool. Juan and Laura were prefect hosts, giving us plenty of recommendations in the local area and making sure our stay was as relaxing as possible. This was definitely one of... More

Simply stunning hotel in the hills above Montezuma. Its truly an oasis with lush gardens, 12x6 pool and the sounds of birds and monkeys all around. Rooms are simple and beds really comfortable. Juan and Laura own the hotel and were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. They couldn't have done more for all of their guests. After 5 weeks travelling,... More

When planning our trip to Montezuma, most of the hotels in downtown looked awful. It was disappointing to see that such a touristic place is in such a poor condition. We then found Horizontes de Montezuma online. At first, the distance from the beach scared us a little bit, but after seen the photos of the place we were convinced... More

My girlfriend and I decided to stay at Horizontes after a last minute change in plans to our trip and it ended up being the highlight of our vacation! Juan and Laura were kind and welcoming hosts, and they generously went out of their way to make us feel at home in Montezuma. They made great recommendations for food and... More

A highlight of my trip to the Nicoya peninsula and by far the best of 3 similarly priced accomodations within Montezuma (El Jardin and Casitas Sollevante the other two). This is a lovingly restored Victorian style property finished and designed with considerable taste and quality fixtures. oh, the bed. how dreamy i slept. Really enjoyed meeting Juan and Laura, great... More

I caught a fish (Red Snapper) that morning and the owner tried to help me find a restaurant that would cook my fish for me . He said if I could not find a cook he would cook it for me. That's what happened and it was not only a SUPER CLEAN HOTEL to stay at but he and his... More

The hotel is lovely, great swimming pool and breakfast. Rooms are simple, clean and nice. Bed was very comfortable. The best are the owners- helped beyond expected and made us feel welcome. But note this hotel is a bit uphill from town- a car will be helpful. Taxi is always an option, but sometimes hard to find. Not a big... More

My fiance and I loved the gorgeous landscaping and hotel property at Hotel Horizontes. Our room was very spacious, had a wrap-around deck with a hammock with privacy partitions. Breakfast was wonderful! The pool offered a nice cool-off. Staff was helpful, but slow-to-warm to; Kali offered us a ride to town one morning when we couldn't track down a taxi.... More

The Hotel Horizontes overlooking Montezuma is owned and meticulously managed by a nice German lady called “Birgit.” One can’t help but notice the very Germanic order that presides over the hotel. This atmosphere contrast sharply with the slightly anarchic and disorganized Latino “laissez faire” of the Rican people. Rooms are simple but nice, with large balconies. The hotel is located...
