We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of Montezuma.
Room: The room was basic - clean, necessities for living, not a lot of excess room. The bathroom has a huge shower with decent water temp and good water pressure. There is a/c and free wi-fi but there wasn't a TV in the room.
Hotel generally: Well cared for. On the 3rd floor there is Direct TV if you want to watch it and hammocks to lounge in. We didn't do any TV watching but I did spend an hour or so in the hammock reading a book. The hotel does have security on duty after dark. A note about rates - if you pay cash you get a better rate. NOTE: There is NOT an ATM machine in Montezuma so bring at least enough cash for 1 night in the hotel.
Staff: Was pleasant and professional. Everyone spoke English.
Location: In guide books this hotel is listed as "beyond the church" which makes it seem remote and quiet. This isn't the case. It is quiet but it is also super conveniently located on a dead end street near the town park. You can get to food, stores, the bus, the bar, and the beach by foot in 2 minutes (no exaggeration).
Overall: Great value if you don't need a fully Western style hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
