We visited Costa Rica for nine days in July, three of which we spent in Montezuma. After checking Trip Advisor we booked three nights at Montezuma Gardens. The B&B is owned by a couple of brothers who seem to be in their mid-20s. It is run by them and a woman of similar age. A one- or two-year old toddler is also in residence. Our hosts were very friendly and hospitable. Nonetheless, we cut our stay short and changed hotels for the remainder of our time in Montezuma.
The rooms were small, basic and extremely spartan. The common area was decorated and maintained in a way that you would expect from recent college grads. I will add that the breakfasts were quite good!
While Montezuma Gardens wasn't what we were looking for, I do recommend it for visitors to Montezuma with ages and tastes similar to the hosts. I think guests with appropriate expectations will find their stay quite enjoyable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Mariposario Montezuma Gardens and Butterfly Brewing Co. A lovely B&B, micro-brewery, butterfly garden, bar and restaurant in the jungle. We are located 1.6 km from Montezuma center at the entrance to the upper waterfall trail. The location is not right in town but in a tranquil area surrounded by mountain jungle. The road to the Mariposario is very steep but you do not need a 4x4 car to arrive here. ... more less
