First thing you need to decide is if you want to stay in the down town area or out of town area. The town is very small (i mean small !! its a T-shape that's 50 meters, but that's why its so great) the downtown part is loud at night and generally more expensive, if you are in Montezuma to party then downtown is the place to be. The draw back is that you don't see much wildlife and it is loud. I like to party, but it's to loud for me. The area away from town is still in walking distance to the restaurants and bars in town and you really get to see what Costa Rica has to offer as in wildlife, not just the party scene.
Now, for the hotel itself. We loved this place!!!!! It was clean, cute, and the breakfast is amazing. The people that run it are awesome! They can really help you with anything you need. The place is operated with you in mind and you don't feel like you are on anyone's schedule. Breakfast is between 6-9am, and is always great! i cant tell you enough about how wonderful the people are. I think I partied more than there usual guests do, but they seemed to enjoy my antics (i racked up a healthy tab in the 5 days we stayed there)
Okay, the hill is bad! It is a steep triple hill incline straight up. We walked up it once and didn't do it again. The location is great, you are on the hill looking over the ocean and butterfly garden ( yes, butterfly garden, this was what sold me on the place, mainly for my G-friend. its very cool) the breeze is cool and you don't really need the A/C unless you need a freezing cold, mid day, sun burnt, hangover nap. The walk down to the town is great, this is when you see a lot of wild life. I think the walk to town was one of the best parts of the stay and when you have had enough beer and beach, the cab from town to the hotel is about $2 so its a no brainier! All in all we loved this place and would feel like we were cheating on them if we stayed some were else the next time we are in Montezuma!!
