On our trip to Costa Rica, we wanted to go to Montezuma to see the waterfalls because all the locals said the waterfalls in Montezuma were the best. The waterfalls were definitely amazing. We couldn't go back to the part of Costa Rica were were originally staying in (Playa Hermosa) until the next morning because of the taxi boat schedule so we had to pick somewhere to stay in Montezuma for one night.
We picked El Tajalin because it was on $50 a night and close to town. DO NOT STAY in ROOM #3 !!!! TONS OF MOSQUITOS!!! We were killing mosquitos nonstop for more than an hour until we decided we would be better off sleeping on the beach. When we tried to leave or get somewhat of a refund, the management said we couldn't get a refund but offered us another room (#6). Room #6 was better, I think we killed two mosquitos, and slept with the sheets over our heads so we wouldn't get bitten up. I still got about ten mosquito bites on my legs. Terrible experience! Never again will we stay at El Tajalin.
Poor hotel, would NOT stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A friendly hotel just a few steps from the beach with a/c, WiFi, wood floors, free coffee and a big common area with Tv/Dvd. All major cards accepted. A good choice if you want to stay amid the hustle and bustle of Montezuma. ... more less
