“Beautiful property!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

My fiance and I loved the gorgeous landscaping and hotel property at Hotel Horizontes. Our room was very spacious, had a wrap-around deck with a hammock with privacy partitions. Breakfast was wonderful! The pool offered a nice cool-off. Staff was helpful, but slow-to-warm to; Kali offered us a ride to town one morning when we couldn't track down a taxi. If you want a relaxing spot, this is your ticket! However, make sure to factor in taxi rides and breakfast as additional fees necessary to the experience. Overall, we loved our stay at Hotel Horizontes but wouldn't return without a vehicle.

The Hotel Horizontes overlooking Montezuma is owned and meticulously managed by a nice German lady called “Birgit.” One can’t help but notice the very Germanic order that presides over the hotel. This atmosphere contrast sharply with the slightly anarchic and disorganized Latino “laissez faire” of the Rican people. Rooms are simple but nice, with large balconies. The hotel is located 2-3 km uphill from the town and not easy reachable without a car. I would have given a 4 star review if it were not for the fact that our sheets had a slight musty / sour smell, as if they had not been changed or had been washed without enough detergent or not dried properly. This was very disappointing in an otherwise very clean and pleasant environment.

Recently spent two nights in the extremely quiet and private single home on the property. The beautiful home is very spacious has all the amenities and then some and is surrounded by a well kept landscape and organic garden. We enjoyed each evening in the pool watching the parrots and the monkeys move around the valley below. We look forward to returning in the spring.

My wife and I stayed here for a week over spring break 2013. We were new to Costa Rica but can't wait to return. We had a wonderful week at this hotel, it's a very relaxing spot with a wonderful pool and gardens. Birgit who owns the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our room and the very tasty breakfasts every morning. The hotel is really close to the beautiful beaches and interesting and hip town of Montezuma and we felt like we were in paradise! Unfortunately the week went by too quickly but we would certainly return and enjoy this great hospitality again.

This is a small, beautiful, quiet hotel on top of a hill in a large and well kept garden. The owner takes good care of her guests, especially as she bakes bread, that you can order for breakfast. The rooms are clean and the set up of the property is very quaint. If you are interested in plants, trees and birds, you can observe these from your 2nd story own balcony, while relaxing in a hammock or sitting in a rocking chair. The pool is clean and inviting. I recommend a rental car, as the hotel is about a 30 min. walk away from Montezuma and the beach, downhill towards town, means uphill back, but there are plenty of taxis in Montezuma and you can also take the Ticobus. The area offers lots of things to do and the owner of the hotel and the receptionist will help to arrange activities. It´s a good place if you want a quiet stay in a cozy athmosphere.

This hotel was most beautiful hotel of all hotels we've stayed during our one month trip around Costa Rica. Peaceful, clean with awsome tropical garden. Our room was spotless, with our own balcony and a hammock. Try a homemade bread for breakfast, is absolutely delicious!
The location is little bit tricky, car is highly recommended or count with long dusty steepy hill (20 minutes walk) on your way to Montezuma beach.
Tip: on the right side from Montezuma center, 1 km away, is beautiful Playa Las Manchas, great for snorkeling. Is much more nicer than the other beaches around.
We paid 62 $ per night. Altohugh it's B&B, breakfast is not included. Strange. There is also shared fridge. Wifi had very changeable quality and was very slow.

The place was very peaceful and my husband enjoyed listening to the howlers and the birds in the area. The place is set up on a hill that is a bit out of town and not an easy walk especially back to the place since it is all up hill from the center of the village. If you are going to stay here a car really comes in hand or you might end up taking taxis that will add up. It will cost you about $6 one way to or back from town.

We stayed there for two nights on our recent stay to the area. We were also there at a very busy time over the holidays and there were really no places with vacancies. Upon arriving we were told that we were expected the day before and they did not have a room for us. The owner was upset that we had not shown up and she had given away our room. After she went back to check her email and confirmed the nights we were actually there on the correct day for our reservation but the room we reserved was no longer available. After some calls that there were no other places available in the area she moved her intern and made up a room for us for the couple of nights that we were there. This was very stressful and we were not sure what we were to do at that point. The room worked but the futon bed was not super comfortable that we were provided with and we had to walk to a shared bathroom.

It was cooler there at night due to the location and it all worked out but it did not start out great when we were accused of showing up the wrong day.

Room Tip: Consider having a car if you book this place.
