On our 23 day road trip on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, this was the most beautiful hotel we stayed at. All of our hotels were reserved in advance and price range was $55 to $80. What a wonderful surprise Hotel Horizontes de Montezuma was! After a long day of driving dirt roads, we found this white fenced driveway and a gorgeous small hotel. The pictures say it all. The owner, Brigit was very helpful and gracious. The rooms are very new, the largest we stayed in, and clean. Clean sheets, towels, hot water and a veranda with Howler Monkeys just outside. A lovely pool and open air dining too. What a thrill. Montezuma was not my favorite town. If you are over 30 and want a clean, quiet night, Brigit’s hotel is the place for you. If not for Brigit’s encouragement, we would not have attended the horse show and bull riding rodeo. What a night! Fabulous local food—and cheap too. Drunken young gringos in the middle of the arena, daring the bulls to chase them (while drinking a beer!). We took a snorkeling trip here too. It was great—a lovely island and lunch included. Thank you Brigit for providing a beautiful, peaceful, hotel in a dusty, crazy, Bohemian, town.
