“Relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of staying here for a week while I was doing a poi retreat. The place is absolutely beautiful, with a magnificent ocean view and lovely garden surroundings. The pool is clean and a good thing to have when in Montezuma, as the days can get pretty hot.

Our little house was spotlessly clean, with a nice kitchen equipped with what we needed for cooking our own meals. The bedroom had a powerful fan in addition to the house having air conditioning.

The location is a little walk from downtown Montezuma, so you should have a car or be prepared to get taxis up and down. It's possible to walk down a jungle path or the road, like we did. It's not very far, but you will get warm and sweaty dute to the hot weather. And bring a flashlight for walking at night. The good aspect of the location is that it is nice and quiet. Also, there is a nice jungle path to walk to one of the waterfalls.

The service was very good, except for the young american girl working at the reception. She obviously wanted to do as little as possible. We enqired about getting a second key, as we were sharing house with two other people and we were not all together every day and needed to get in and out. She said she would have one made for us, but she never did. She also tried to get me and my boyfriend to carry yoga-mats down to the practice deck even though we were not part of the group doing yoga.

We stayed here two nights during our honeymoon, although we had booked for four. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but the place itself was completely unsuited to us. We were put in a self catering bungalow which was down an unsafe, dirt track and overlooked a rubbish strewn slope and the washing lines. The bungalow was clean enough but lacked basic self-catering things like normal knives (we only had steak knives) and although the hotel offers frewe wi-fi it was impossible to get any. We were also joined by huge ants and a giant stick insect. On our second night our key broke in the lock (it was a cheap Yale rip-off) and we couldn't find anyone to help us for over 40 minutes - eventually another guest managed to get hold of the owner, who wasn't apologetic and at first said that he would just put us in another room for the night, even though all of our belongings were in the bungalow, including our dinner. Overall we felt as though we had paid a lot of money to be shoved out of sight and out of mind. Luckily we were able to check out early - the receptionist was very helpful and apologetic, to her credit - and paid $15 extra to stay at the wonderful Agua Vista.

My Aunt (58) and I (32) rented a room, which is more like a studio apt, for over a week. It was amazing. Relaxing, quiet, surrounded by ocean and jungle views and humming birds! It's about a 15-20 minute walk to the beach, which we did everyday. We walked down (steep hills, but fun - saw monkeys and lizards) every morning and took a taxi up (cost about $2). The pool is splendid and the patio is AMAZING - did yoga, got a massage, read in the hammock, and ate meals on it. Felt like a home!

Would definitely return. I highly recommend Casitas for family, friends, couples and individuals alike. I WILL return!

Room Tip: Confirm hammock is there!

We loved our little casita! We had a car so access to Montezuma was easy - you don't want to walk that hill. The pool was lovely and everything was modern and well designed - love the curved outdoor shower enclosures. We did find our room wasn't cleaned daily, and an odd smell emanating from the bathroom. But not a big deal for us. All in all, very nice.

Haviar and Varina are a nice couple who took very good care of us. A major plus when you are so out of your element. We saw green parrots, both capuchin and howler monkeys and other great wildlife on the premises. One of the best parts was being showed to the upper waterfall by Ricardo. It is a lot less crowded than the lower falls and super refreshing. I highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the lower apartment and loved it.

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!
