We stayed two nights in late December in room number six (large, clean, awesome balcony) and would have stayed longer if there had been space for us. The property sprawls across a lush hilltop and offers solitude and excellent star gazing at night. The pool area was beautiful and cleverly designed to offer privacy from the hotel. Guests have the option to purchase healthy homemade breakfasts to enjoy in the open guest/dining area. Birgit and her friend from Germany were gracious, welcoming, helpful, and organized hosts.
The only thing to keep in mind is that the hotel is around 3 km from town, and taxis are not always easy to come by in Montezuma, at least in peak season. We were fine walking, but the return trip involves very steep hills (challenging with a drink or two under the belt). Of course a car makes everything easy and it's a quick drive between the hotel and town.
If we ever make it back to Costa Rica, we will make it a priority to stay at Horizontes again.
