“Thank you for a fantastic stay and a great hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

I just want to recommend this fantastic place to stay at when going to Montezuma, Costa Rica. Nice and clean rooms/houses all with private verandas giving a fantastic view over the bay and in the middle of the garden you find the swimming pool. The hosts, a very nice couple, give you a very warm welcome. They also know the area very well and help you to find all fantastic place to visit on the peninsula. If you want to be sure to have a fantastic stay in Montezuma, stay at Three Monkeys!!

Lovely houses with beutiful garden and swimming pool and hammocks with a look to the ocean.
Location is ca 1 km uphill from center. Bring a torch if you're staying late and walking, cause the road is partly not illuminated.

This place was fantastic!

- Owner was helpful and drove us downtown first day to get couple groceries.
- We were one of the only people there and had the amazing pool almost to ourselves all week!
- It was very clean, the rooms are giant, fridge is helpful, we did not use the tv, wifi is good.
- Do not come here to meet people, there is no social area, just separate rooms and pool.
- There is no restaurant so you need food.
- Place is above a giant hill, I did not feel safe walking late at night but there are "cabs" (i.e. someone that does this on the side) downtown montezuma (very safe) and will drive you up for about 7$CAD.
- Was sometimes discouraging to go to town and back because of the location and giant hill but you can work around it and they will even help you order food to your room if needed.
- We needed additional cutlery and they gave us some from their home.
- Monkeys are near the hostel and they are very cool.

This place was awesome. Possibly the best we stayed in in Costa Rica; I believe it was $50 a night. The rooms were large and spacious, clean, comfy bed, nice bathroom, a wardrobe, mini fridge and some beautiful wood furnishings. We'd hang out on the porch and often in the hammock! It was quiet overall, and we had the big, beautiful pool to ourselves most of the time. The owners were so great, and helpful. Thanks Cecelia and Wolf!

We had a vehicle so it was easier to get to and would definitely recommend if people had one; it is on the top of quite a steep, switchbacked hill. The absolute perfect place!

Three monkeys hotel is 500 meters from the center of Montezuma top of the hill. The most convenient way of getting to the center is by car or quad. By foot it is a challenge but not impossible. Only in the dark can not see anything. The landlord told me that the neighborhood could find all sorts of snakes, tarantulas, etc. beasts. Monkey family living on the trees, hovering around toucans and parrots.
It overlooks the ocean.
The surroundings are quiet, large courtyard with stunning pool.
Rooms are large, with TV, air conditioners and refrigerators. There is hot water. At each of the rooms are suspended hammock and a beautiful place to sit.
Breakfast in the hotel does not offer, but it is possible to make coffee. The hosts were welcoming and we asked them to boil eggs for breakfast.
Perfect location and price-quality combination.
We had booked a hotel for 3 nights , but stayed for 4 nights because it was the coolest hotel in Costa Rica . Definitely recommend to stay there .

Room Tip: Hotel has cottages, each with two rooms. each room its own entrance. You can choose any, all is go...

my stay at the three monkeys was pretty good as a whole, however after spending several weeks here the afternoon before i was to continue my travels my room was robbed, i was relieved of my laptop and all my other tech, my passport was left in the middle of the bed, small comfort, the owners were very apologetic and i left my motorcycle there for a few weeks to head into Argentina,upon my return no news as to the whereabouts of my possessions. the side windows are the week link

The room was simple but clean, had a fridge and AC, as well as a hammock on the terrace. Nice owner. Montezuma in walking distance (if you don't mind walking uphill on the way back), but it's a lot more quiet than downtown. Very relaxing, especially at the pool, which was my favorite one during 2 months of traveling Costa Rica :-)
