“great location but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2009

I stayed one night at the Hotel Lys, it is located on the beach of Montezuma and 2 minutes away from the main street, but I was very disappointed with the room. For sure it's cheap but my room was tiny and dirty, bedsheets full of stains, cobwebs on the walls, the bathroom was old and not cleaned properly...It is a real shame as the staff is really friendly and laid back, but for the same price you get a get big, airy, clean room n town.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2009

Intimate and personable, the Hotel Lys is a small hostel-like property right on the beach in Montezuma. There is a "patio" out front on the sand under a large umbrella-type awning, which is a perfect place for meals, relaxing or just people watching. The staff is friendly and helpful, fluent in Spanish, Italian and English. Every night they serve a family-style dinner, which was delicious and entertaining -- my first night 12 different countries were represented at the table -- fascinating! The accommodations are basic, but you can't beat the price or the view!
