The label of the hotel is a crab which is basically everywhere around Montezuma at dawn and night. Best with this hotel was the location, as it was a bit (100m) away from town and was very quiet - but still it was only a one minute walk from the centre. The owners were very helpfull and friendly. On the roof terrace there were some hammocks which were great to linger a bit in the shade and read a book.
When we stayed there it was fully booked so we got a room on the ground floor. I guess it is more light higher up in the hotel. Although it was not outright dirty, it was not very clean either. They do not serve breakfast.
All in all it was a great stay in Montezuma with an ok hotel, but the value for the money was not the best in comparison to other places in Costa Rica. However, as it seemed to me the hotels in a similar price class were not much better in Montezuma.
