“Pricey for what you got.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We stayed here one night and although it was ok we found it to be a bit pricey for what you got. The air con was an extra $10. And in the first room it wasn't working and the next room, barely. The rooms totally spartan and no hot water in the shower and the shower doors were about to fall off. The whole place needs a bit of work. The highlight was the visit in the morning from the monkeys.

Rooms are simple and have option for A/C or not (about $10 extra for A/C.) However, since our room had two fans (a ceiling fan and an oscellating fan on the wall, we felt no need to pay the extra cost.

The only problem I had with the room (and this is minor) was that it was dark and the shower head was broken. We had a room on the second floor and the windows have a louvered shutters which don't let much light in. I never said anything till check out about the shower head.

The best thing about the hotel is the excellent area upstairs for chilling out in hammocks and in chairs while facing the beach across the street.

The second best thing about the hotel is the fact that it comes with breakfast and their breakfasts are substantial and quite yummy (service however not exactly the most attentive.)

The third best thing is the girl who works the front desk, Samantha. She's great!

Lastly, the fact that the hotel is right next to the path up to the waterfalls is really nice. When you eat breakfast you are sitting next to the river which comes down from the waterfall. It is quite peaceful.

Hotel has Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: If you stay upstairs, you might want to request a room which is located a little bit away from the c...

We stayed here for two nights during the rainy season and were the only guests! There wasn't any breakfast, but our room was 50% off so we didn't mind. The hotel is very nice and our room was clean - they have cotton sheets and big towels. Our only complaint was that it was a bit far from the town, which in the rainy season can mean a muddy walk home from dinner.

$55.00 per night + breakfast. Good little place, good breakfast to start the day. Located on edge of town, near to waterfalls, dusty road walk to little town centre!
Our room was on side of building, set below upper rooms. Air con was electric fans on walls, but adequately kept room cool.
Heard constant rushing water, from lower stream and falls.
But overall good value for money and we were made extremely welcome by the owners.

I stayed at this hotel as part of the G Adventure tour group so I had a chance to see many of the rooms here.

Right next to the river, soothing sounds at night. Walk up to the Montezuma waterfall.

The breakfast restaurant is quite good.

Love the hammocks on the second floor! Very relaxing.

Generally clean, with towels and white sheets provided & changed everyday. Night security. Owned by a local family who lives at the back of the hotel.

Showers are unpredicable...sometimes a drizzle then suddenly more water power! Cold shower only. Hot showers are something of a luxury here in Montezuma. Good luck finding it in any of the budget places in town. Even when they say it's 'hot' it's lukewarm at best...

Most of the rooms don't have air conditioning but have fans nailed vertically to the wall. From what I have seen, most of the rooms are not spacious and can get stuffy at night.
However...
I really lucked out and got room 20. It's bigger than rest of the rooms and the ensuite bathroom is also huge, with a shelf to put your stuff. It does not have a/c but because it's by the river with big screened windows, it's very cool at night, I actually had to ask for a blanket!

Room Tip: Ask for room 20! It's the very breezy one on the first floor right by the river! Comes with a hu...

We stayed two nights in la cascada in january '12 because almost all other hotels and hostels were full!! La cascada was almost empty, but rooms are clean and nice, breakfast is ok but 50$ a night is too expensive for montezuma! Front desk wasnt very friendly. The waterfalls are nice and we had monkeys in front of the hotel! Best beach in montezuma is playa las manchas
