I stayed here with a friend for 4 nights. It is a no frills hotel but the rooms are clean and the air conditioner worked. For the price you can't beat it. There are cut outs in the hallway to the outside so you're likely to see small lizards scampering along the walls. Our room was properly cleaned everyday and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and thought it was great for the price. Staff was friendly most of the time. The AC was great but the rooms are super dark inside! Really close to the beach and restaurants as well. The fact it was connected to Ylang Ylang resort made it 100% worth it -- we could go use... More

We loved our room with air conditioning, wi-fi, breakfast included, and just a very friendly staff. The breakfast was delicious and a perfect way to start the day. The location was ideal, right in the middle of town so everything was within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Montezuma, it was affordable but still included...

If you want somewhere clean, central - their basic accommodation was surpassed by the wonderfully friendly staff, the food was great and the location perfect !! We have stayed in some fabulous hotels but at this one , it was the service and all I've mentioned above that meant we didn't want to leave . Thank you lovely people 😀

Yeah we were somewhat disappointed after reading so many positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I wasn't expecting 5 star and the price reflected that but the only thing going for this place is...hmmm. well the rooms were clean. Oh but the rooms are so tiny they shouldn't be hard to clean! And don't expect to park on site, I don't think... More

Excellent location in the heart of the action in Montezuma, very comfortable hotel. The free breakfast is nice. Affordable compared to most hotels in the area. There are some cheaper hostels but if you want to be more comfortable this is a good choice.

Directly above a restaurant with breakfast included and a fantastic dinner menu. English spoken by the front desk and the helpful wait staff. Next door to a minimart for any... More

I've been here before and they're always improving things. New menu items, juice bars, outdoor jungle seating... Cleanest rooms, best tasting, healthiest food and friendliest staff. I highly recommend this place if you're staying in the town of Montezuma.

Great location in the middle of Montezuma. Very friendly staff. The breakfast included was also great, you could choose one dish from the menu. We stayed 4 nights and had a room without window, something I didn´t see or understood when making the reservation and as rooms without any view is not my cup of tea at least for 4... More
