We spent three nights at hotel and in Montezuma as part of a two week CR trip. We are three old friends who were last in CR in the mid 70s. First time to Montezuma. What a great little beach town and what a wonderfull hotel. El Sano Banano could not have a better location. The rooms, facilities, meals all exceeded our expectations and are a real bargain. Great complimentary breakfasts. Be sure and try the Gallo Pinto. We also enjoyed our trip up the beach to the resort and appreciated the access to their facilities. The service was exceptional and all employees went out of their way to accomodate our every need. We would like to thank Jairo, who provided us with very good advise and directions concerning road conditions and suggested route planning for a side trip to Mal Pais and for our trip north to Samara at the conclusion of our stay. Also, a special thanks to the Mgr. Emma, whose good humor, wit, and kindness made us feel especially welcome and who would be reson enough, by herself, to warrant a return trip. Having spent time in the hospitality business myself it is not lost on this guest that the attitude of the entire staff begins and ends with the attitide of the boss and Emma's family of employees are a great example of how to make travelers feel at home. Thank you Emma. We look forward to coming back.
