Casa Frangipani was unbelievably fantastic. Seriously, I can't imagine anyone ever having something negative to say about staying at this property.
We drove to Montezuma from San Jose (really fun, nice drive - and we are Costa Rica novices - just get a GPS) and when we arrived we couldn't believe the entire villa was just for us. Alex, the caretaker, was super nice and welcoming and answered any questions we had but otherwise left us alone - which is exactly what we wanted.
The villa was beautiful. We cooked approximately half of the nights of our ten day stay, always ate outside and drank wine out on our deck, had coffee on the roof of our villa (amazing to have two outdoor spaces just to ourselves)...just so fantastically relaxing. The maid kept our villa looking amazing and even brought us complimentary honeymoon champagne. The pool was pristine, the grounds were gorgeous. The outdoor shower was phenomenal.
At the beginning of our stay we met another young couple staying on the property and chatted them up a bit, but otherwise we didn't run into anyone but Alex.
The hill separating Casa Frangipani and the center of town is a bit of a walk (not really in length but it's a bit steep). We walked it the first few nights, then figured out it was amazingly easy to bring our rental car down, park and drive back up (it's literally a two-minute drive). The hill is walkable, though, in my opinion; it just gets really dark if you're walking up late at night.
Fabulous place to stay. If you stay somewhere else in Montezuma...honestly, you'll be bummed because Casa Frangipani is top-notch; the best.
