Luna Llena was one of our favorite places to stay in Costa Rica. I saw more animals here than any national park! We were coming for a night maybe two and ended up staying 5 nights. It has great view to the beach from the second floor, it is surrounded by jungle, with great common areas. Good service, WiFi, well... More

Luna llena is an amazing place. Fully equipped kitchen, helpful and friendly staff, roughly 100 meters from town and the beach!, free wi-fi, clean linen and towels everyday, and a super welcoming common area where people can just kick back and relax (there is actually a TV with cable, but I only saw it on once... for a football match)....

Llena Luna is more than you'd expect from a budget hotel. The rooms are large, beautifully decorated with fresh linens everyday, the veranda is bright, welcoming and has beautiful views, and all the staff are friendly and helpful. With a great shared kitchen, free wifi, a safe in each room and a short stroll to the beach this place has... More

Montezuma was our favourite place in Costa Rica and Luna Llena was a big part of the reason. Milly made us feel welcome from the beginning - and we just kept extending our stay! The kitchen is extremely well-equipped, the view is stunning, the facilities excellent and the monkeys come to play regularly. We stayed in a private room upstairs... More

Great location up on the hill in the midst of the jungle with fantastic views. The rooms are basic , but clean with fresh towels provided every day. The upstairs porch and common area downstairs offer enough space to relax and lounge. Staff was very helpfful organizing trips and transportation.

This place was really nice. The hostel is set along a hill in the forest. We were treated many times to monkeys meandering through the trees. Squirrels and Iguanas were also sighted. The open common rooms with people coming and going was quite relaxing with a great atmosphere. All the staff were exceptionally friendly. Especially Gwen. An easy walk from... More

I stayed at Luna Llena for 5 nights in the dorm room. It's a perfectly nice hotel - up the hill from the main action (which means you can avoid feeling guilty about lying on the beach all day - it's a good workout!), with some nice views of the ocean and a good-sized lounge area. There is one dorm... More

The location of Luna Llena, up the hill from the main intersection of Montezuma, is one of its best assets. It's in a forest, with monkeys, crabs, and birds all around. This setting makes staying there an interesting experience, as you have an opportunity to see wildlife without taking a rainforest tour. It also means there are lots of bugs.... More

I will always stay here when I visit montezuma - my boyfriend and I stayed three nights in room 3 and loved it! Nice big kitchen to share, amazing outdoor showers and porches with seating on your private porch. Fresh towels and sheets each morning, big fan and screened windows and a mosquito net provided (we didnt need it). It's... More

Me and my family (2 adults and 3 children) spent about 1 week at the Luna Llena. The best spot in our 3 weeks trip. The place is really charming, has a shared kitchen, located in the forest with lots of white face and howler monkeys eating in the trees around. We were waken up every morning by a troup... More
