“Nice Staff, nice room, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

We spent 4 nights in Montezuma and we wew very happy to have found this place!

The rooms were nice, clean, bright, and airy. I very much liked the bathroom decor. The beds were also very comfortable.

The location was wonderful, so close to the beach but just far enough from the main intersection de be nice and quiet. And it's Montezuma so really, nothing in the town is far away.

Also, the staff was super sweet and put up with my horrid Spanish.

I would stay there again anytime!

We went twice to this place first last year, we had a nice kind of suite a bit upstairs with a private terrace and so many monkeys around!!Second time we had an other room for 4 cheaper and basic but nice too, what I really like in this hotel it's the nature all around so lush everywhere, the pool with ocean view and some time they organise some nice BBQ parties.Great safe parking. Closed to the beach.

I would really like to recommend this Hotel to everyone and hope you enjoy the staying as much as I did. We are a spanish-hungarian couple who were travelling for one month in Costa Rica discovering little by little the country and the place where we stayed longer was this one because of a great mix of the Hotel and the surroundings.
What I would remark most maybe is the location in the middle of a private jungle full os animals and besides the beach, with a real sensation of peaceful privacy. As well, the price-quality ratio is the best we found in the whole country, very similar in standard to other neighbouring luxurious hotels but with a much cheaper price. Moreover, it is among the few with a private pool deserted most of the day, clean and cosy rooms, and an open air barbecue. We will come back in the future surely, cheers

This hotel is at the end of town but perfectly located withing steps from the beach and the town of Montezuma. The grounds are beautiful and lush. The rooms were mediocre as the beds were not the most comfortable things but I think everything else made up for it. The night we were there, they had a BBQ in which there was a chef cooking which ever fish you had selected. This was one of the BEST meals we had in the 11 days we were in Costa Rica.

Room Tip: No AC in rooms, just fans but moderately comfortable. Beds a little tough

Best location in town! Tons of parking. Stunning landscape. Monkeys everywhere!!! Wifi but no computers for use. Breakfast wait staff will show prejudice toward Americans, basically you will be ignored! Sheets don't fit the beds so the second you sit, they come off the corners! Ceiling fans howls almost as loud as the monkeys at night. Don't expect maid to bring fresh towels until after 2pm. Room includes small fridge. Pool on site. Stayed here 4 years ago and it was wonderful. Great location, disappointing service this time around :(

My husband and I stayed in Luz the Mono for 2 nights. I feel the place was originally designed with a lot of care, thought and love and it shows in the gardens, common area and wood details in the rooms. I learned the owner passed away a few years ago and it seems that details have been left to go as well. Our bathroom had a constant urine smell, and although I mentioned it to Rocio, the receptionist, nothing was done about. Breakfast wasn't the best, but it was fun to watch magpies-jay try to get food from every table.
On the bright side, Laura, the innkeeper, was wonderfully sweet, fun, honest and helpful. The pool was nice and it was a block away from the beach. Overall, I feel Luz de Mono is a place most people could enjoy for just a few days.
On the bright
