“Stunning views!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2011

We absolutely loved Casitas Sollevante! The grounds were beautiful - the pictures don't even do the view justice - and the pool was so refreshing after a day in the surf. The staff was wonderful - Varina and Marco were always there to help with anything you may need. Our apartment was exactly what we needed - a great balcony to spend mornings and evenings on, the most comfortable hammock we encountered in San Jose, and resident porker Cheecho always brought a smile to our face! Can't wait to come back again!

We had been around much of CR and this was our final stay after beachfront rooms, hostels, rainforest hotels, sunset hotels, etc. We came to Montezuma our last night and needed a quiet spot before out trip home. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. An absolutely perfect evening above the action in town, our own kitchen and porch overlooking the ocean, a pool like glass, and not a soul around. We bought a few things and cooked a delicious breakfast in the morning to the sounds of animals in the trees and the view of the morning Pacific. Utterly satisfied with this spontaneous turn off the main road.

**To boot: After we left, I realized I'd left a book in the house and emailed the staff. Within two weeks the book was back in my hands, and I was so grateful and impressed with their service. Sollevante comes highly recommended!

We traveled with friends and rented two casitas. Both were lovely and the grounds and view were gorgeous. Varina and Sammy were very friendly and helpful. The casitas are perched above the town of Montezuma and it is a steep 15-20 minute hike to get into town, fine for people with a car or strong hikers (the proprietors will happily give you a ride if they are around). The casitas and grounds were very peaceful, and we appreciated being away from the touristy town center. While there was no hot water, the temperature was fine for a shower; it was pleasantly cool after a hot hike up the hill. The pictures of the pool look straight from a travel magazine--and it really looks like it in person!

Montezuma is really different. You have lots of restaurants and bars, and few beaches with no rocks. Despite that, it's reallaxing, cozy and has a safe atmosphere.
This hotel was picked between a few choices, and we're really glad we did it.
The amazing view of the Pacific in the porch was great. Spent there an entire afternoon (because it rained really much) and it was just great... the lightning and thunder at sunset and night were awesome.
The rooms were nice, the kitchen has everything you can expect from it.
Really nice place.

My friends and I checked into Casitas Sollevante mid November intending to stay for five nights, we ended up staying for seven. Our group of five shared the two casitas at the top of the property with stunning views of the exceptionally maintained grounds overlooking the ocean. The interior of the casitas is furnished in a simple, clean style which only contributes to the relaxing feel of the place. Equipped with air conditioning, hot shower and kitchen as well as a comfortable, clean bed we couldn't ask for more! We definitely made the most out of the pool and the newly built deck to relax and enjoy the serenity and the sun!

The staff and in particular the owner Marco are extremely helpful and friendly in a genuine, relaxed sort of way. The place is a 15 minute walk from Montezuma's town centre and a 15 minute hike from the awesome waterfalls nearby. We were provided with a lift into town and picked up on every occasion that we asked for one (except for the one time Marco fell asleep watching TV! :-))

I would not hesitate to recommend this place and hope to come back again some day!

We stayed at Casitas for four nights in April. We were immediately stunned by the beautiful view of the Pacific. The first thing we did was jump in the pool! It was a very pleasant place to relax and enjoy the lovely view. We had booked the apartment, but something was wrong with it so they bumped us up to a 2 bedroom villa. The villa itself was basic, which it looks like most of the places in Montezuma are. It was clean upon arrival, although as always, be careful about ants! We forgot to close our cereal bag completely and we woke up the next morning with ants in it. We were very satisfied with our choice after seeing other places in the Montezuma area. The Casitas are just outside of Montezuma (which we were really happy about), there was always a nice breeze, and it was a lovely place to come back to after a long day playing in the sun and surf. I would recommend the Casitas for anyone looking for a lovely place to spend time in Montezuma and relax with a beautiful view!

I spent 6 days in one of the villas with some friends. We found some cheap plane tickets and decided to get away from New England for a little bit.

This place was the perfect contrast to being cramped up in a tiny Brooklyn apartment on a chilly, rainy April day. The managers were great and very helpful, giving us suggestions and rides down to Montezuma. They showed us a private path to the town's breathtaking waterfalls and helped us find a boat tour to Isla Tortuga at the last minute.

Montezuma is an interesting and small town--definitely worth checking out. But Casitas Sollevante is an incredible place in its own right. There's a pool and hot tub where you can lounge and gaze at the ocean in the distance. Or you can float around and see the many stars at night. The grounds surrounding the villas and apartments are filled with beautiful plants and well-kept grass and paths.

Our villa had air-conditioning in the bedrooms, so we were able to get some nice, cool sleep. There was a full kitchen for some cooking-in (there are only so many restaurants in Montezuma!) as well as a coffee maker, safebox and TV. The latter is kind of unnecessary, though, because staring at a screen seems ludicrous when there's such a wonderful view right outside.
