We stayed at the Montezuma for 3 nights, our rooms were directly out to the path in front of the hotel, so ground floor and cooler than upstairs. The place is run by Carlos, who is a very friendly, helpful person and he offers free coffee or tea in his reception area all day long. The rooms were clean and nice, with aircon, although the bathrooms could do with a bit of renovation, the shower tiles are rather stained with hard water residue. Unfortunately there is no breakfast served, even though there is a breakfast area where this could be done, but I suppose the right staff for this is missing. It would make it even nicer if there was breakfast. But you can use the facilities of the kitchen to make your own lunch or breakfast, if you so wish. We felt very safe in this hotel, because there is always someone sitting in front of the hotel, watching the place. This is quite ensuring, so you can leave your stuff and go for walks or hikes and swims, without feeling awkward. Carlos is doing up the inside court of his hotel, to create a nice patio with a grill/oven, a fountain and some funky lighting. Will be interesting to see how that comes out, but building is still going on. We wish you luck and many guests, who will appreciate this very relaxed place, in a great location, near to beach, restaurants, shops and yet quiet at night.
