“Great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This is a wonderful hotel right in downtown Montezuma. The rooms are spaced out in various buildings throughout a beautiful garden. Incredible pool. Very clean, spacious rooms. Grounds are well maintained. Overnight security. Friendly and helpful staff!

We stayed here two years ago and enjoyed our stay at the Hotel. It is a lovely here and so much to do in the area. Natural waterfalls and bush walks to Yoga and cooking lessons and visiting monkies. The beaches are ok but not always safe. We were swimming at the beach and were almost knocked over by the logs that were coming in on the waves.

We stayed two nights at the El Jardin at the end of April. The wonderful reception woman, Marielle let us check in early. She was so helpful and kind. Anytime we had a question about Montezuma, she was our "go to" person. Our room was extremely clean. It was SO hot when we arrived in Montezuma. The air conditioning in our room was blissful. We loved the terrace with lounge chairs and a hammock. The pool was beautiful. We enjoyed seeing the monkeys make their way through the trees by the pool around 4pm every afternoon. We also saw a coati on the path just outside of our door. I tend to be pretty picky about where I stay, and this place was perfect; the price was very reasonable too.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #6 which is set up on a hill. It is very quiet (no one above or below). Also par...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

The staff was kind, the pool was amazing, but the rooms were just so so. We were able to see lots of wildlife. Monkeys in the trees around the pools and lots of pretty birds in the beautiful landscape. The rooms were just ok. Beds were a bit uncomfortable, but the rooms were clean. For a 1-2 night stay in Montezuma it's perfect. It did look like one of the nicer hotels in the area and you really don't need more than two nights in Montezuma anyway. The staff was friendly and it was a 2 min walk to town and the beach. I would recommend an upstairs room. Less noise and better wifi connection. Not too busy and the landscape and ocean are a great view while laying in the hammock.

This is our 5th trip to Montezuma and we always stay at El Jardin. Simple place but all the basics work well. Friendly staff, gorgeous pool and grounds, center of town, a short walk to beautiful beaches.. As always surrounded by amazing Costa Rican wildlife. Anyone know where to get an alarm clock that makes the sound of the local howler monkeys? The best of the Montezuma vibe..

This was our fourth visit to Montezuma and Hotel El Jardin. The proximity to town and the layout of the grounds (gardens and pools) make El Jardin very appealing. Rooms are a little dark and sparse but the large porches outside the rooms make up for some minor flaws. The pool is great to relax in after a day of exploring.

Montezuma ,
is always a great place for vacation, other times we had chosen differently, we are happy to have come to the Jardin, nice hospitality, friendly staff and very professional. And it is a step away from the beaches and the "pueblo" experience that I would do it right away, too bad that holidays do not last enough

Room Tip: many kind to choose from, I would stay or near the pool, but the "casita" has more inti...
