My husband and I spent 4 nights here in December. We had been looking for a place near the Montezuma area where we could also take Spanish lessons. Flexibility was important to us and this turned out to be the ideal place.
The owner is a German woman who is fluent in Spanish, German and English (maybe others!). She offers private spanish lessons for any level and is very flexible on timing, your goals, etc. The hotel is beautiful and located on some amazing grounds that she has created from scratch over the last 10 years. The room was minimalistic and comfortable with private bath, but cold water showers. Each room also has a porch with hammock and chair with great views of the nature all around. The dining area is also wonderfully decorated and the breakfasts were delicious (fruit, eggs, homemade bread, etc.) There is an outdoor pool with tables, chairs, and more hammocks for relaxing. We were woken up a few mornings by monkeys outside our window.
I think this would be a great place ot stay if you had a rental car as the road into Montezuma is quite dusty and there is a very steep hill at the end. It is definitely a good 20 min walk to Montezuma, further back to Cobano. We did not have a car and learned to hitch rides from locals on the road into and out of Montezuma to get back and forth. This worked surprisingly well and introduced us to some local people, but it wasn't always ideal or convenient. There is a bus that runs from Montezuma to Cobano as well that you can wait on the road for but this runs every 2 hrs and certainly is not convenient. If you won't have a car, and are adventurous and flexible I'd still recommend the place. The prices are reasonable and overall it is a very beautiful place.
We also spent 2 nights in downtown Montezuma and that definitely gave us a flavor for the town that I appreciated as well, but certainly woudn't have needed a week of it. We really loved this area (see my trip report in Montezuma) of Costa Rica a lot.
