We had the pleasure of staying at Sol y Luna for four nights during the first week of December 2013. I cannot agree more with all of the glowing reviews. Simon and Patricia were absolutely wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable, and to ensure that we had all of the information necessary to enjoy our time in Montezuma.
In addition to their gracious hospitality, the property is simply amazing - nothing short of a tropical paradise (this was one of the primary reasons we initially selected Sol y Luna, based on photos). The beautiful tropical gardens that occupy the property were designed, and are meticulously maintained, by Patricia and Simon. As a plant enthusiast/gardener myself, I can attest to the significant dedication (and creative flair) that such gardens require. These qualities are also evident in the bungalows. We stayed in the Sol bungalow and loved everything about it. The decor is tasteful and in perfect harmony with the tranquil setting. Natural materials (beautiful woods, driftwood, shells, etc.) and soft lighting give the bungalow a warm and welcoming energy. The bed (memory foam maybe?) was very comfortable and the shower was great (hard to come by we found in CR).
Lastly, if you are interested in wildlife, Sol y Luna will not disappoint. In our short time there, we saw coatimundis, monkeys, an agouti, racoons (including the cutest babies ever), an enormous iguana and several other large lizards, and a number of really cool insects. We loved hearing the otherworldly howls of the howler monkeys in the early mornings.
I cannot recommend Sol y Luna enough. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if we visit Montezuma again.
Thank you Simon and Patricia for sharing your home with us (and apologies for such a long overdo review)! We had a wonderful time :)
