We chose El Jardin because of its proximity to town and good reviews. It's location was great, the room was clean, and the AC (inside) and hammocks (outside) were perfect. Unfortunately, the other guests were incredibly loud - small children screaming from the early evening until 10PM, and American teenagers from 10PM on. Other people have noted that noise from...

My sister and niece and I spent several nights at El Jardin Hotel in Montezuma. We arrived in Montezuma across the strait by fast boat from Heradura, which was a fun adventure in itself, especially because we ended up switching boats mid trip (long story, but it comes down to Costa Ricans trying to be accommodating because the boat we...

We liked this place! We were at El Jardin for four nights, had a room just beside the pool, facing the jungle, so really street noise was not an issue for us. The grounds were very beautiful and the pool was a real plus too. Great monkey sightings late every afternoon from the pool! The hotel is within walking distance... More

So where to start... Booked 3 nights here after reading good reviews on this site. This place is a dump. The people who have review this hotel highly either work there or live in a slum. Asked to change room instantly after seeing the room we'd been given, but was refused because I had run the tap in the bathroom... More

This place is way too expensive and dreadful. No welcome, no breakfast, they tried to overcharge us for a room (you pay an extra charge for paying by card and then they tried to charge us again on the exchange rate... Our AC flooded into a pool on the floor, they did fix it fairly quickly but there was really... More

My wife and I walked around the town a bit and then decided on El Jardin. The guys at reception were very friendly and I think they gave us some snacks or fruit even before we checked it :) We did have an issue with the air conditioner in our first unit and they moved us to the next one... More

weak. its right in the middle of town so if you get a "cheaper room" which is wildly overpriced, about 90 to 100, you are right by the rowdy, noisy, and super dirty road which keeps going all night. people are yelling outside your door in the middle of the night. big nasty cockroaches in the bedroom, bathroom, etc., they...

We have the change of staying here for 3 nights and we have a fantastic time. Esteban at the front desk and Yamilet help us with all our arrangements. We book online at www.hoteleljardin.net and reserve pretty much everything there, car rental, tours and off course the lodging. We took the Tortuga Island Tour with Zuma Tours and had a... More

We stayed at El Jardin for 2 nights and were quite pleased with our room. We were in a bungalow that had 4 rooms, 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs. We were lucky enough to be on the second floor so we had a beautiful view of the ocean and of Montezuma. We loved the big porch and hammock. The grounds... More

My friend and I were so disappointed with this hotel. The fact that we payed $20 more per night compared to other places we stayed in CR, we expected much more. Our room was tiny, the fridge was broken (couldn´t close the door) and noisy, and the A/C produced more heat then cold. In addition, we were given a room... More
