My husband and I stayed here as part of our trip through Costa Rica. Out of all the hotels we stayed in this was for sure the most rustic. No air conditioning in the room so it was hot at night which made it hard to fall asleep. The windows were only screens which made it noisy. It was nice for a while, listening to all the jungle noises and the ocean. But the howler monkeys are LOUD and kept me up much of the night. The bathroom had no door, just a curtain, and was very small. The room itself was quite small also, but it was pretty clean. Just older and seemed to need some updating in the bathroom, esp. the shower. Our room did have a huge wrap around deck which was great to sit on and play cards or read at the end of the day.
The hotel staff is very nice and very helpful. The hotel is across the street from the train that brings you to Montezuma Waterfall. The grounds are beautiful and they are right on the ocean. My husband enjoyed swimming in the tidal pools. We were able to walk around on the beach from the hotel and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. The hotel is also very close to town. We just walked into town for lunches and dinners and there were plenty of choices. And the food at the hotel was delicious too. The town of Montezuma is great. Quirky and fun and a nice change from some of the more touristy spots.
For the price, location, and friendly staff the hotel is great.
