The room was large, well laid out, and clean. Excellent breakfast with monkeys, pizotes, and birds everywhere. The only negatives that need to be addressed are the 200+ meter private entry road that is challenging during rainy times (we would not have been able to access the hotel without aour 4WD) and the stairs are equivalent to a three story walkup. I'm 71 and it was a workout moving our bags up to the parking lot. Walking into town isn't a walk around the block...we wouldn't rent there without a car. Other than access, it was excellent.
Room was great, service excellent. If you do not mind walking up/downhill or rent a car- it would be your best hotel choice. Staff/Service was great. You won't appreciate enough air-conditioning on hot Montezuma day. The young people working there take service very seriously. Waterfall trail starts at the hotel, ask staff for directions. Some knowledge of Spanish would help to communicate.
We loved this hotel, only 6 rooms, outstanding views watching the sunrise from the balcony was breathtaking , small pool, but clean, great freshly made breakfasts. Staff did everything to help. This hotel is up in the hills above Montezuma, easy walking down to the town, but hard coming back, usually negotiated a taxi for $4 to get home, the hanging bridge was a fun addition
It was the perfect spot for what we wanted to do during our stay. It was only a 5-10 min hike to the waterfalls which is free since we were guests there. The rooms were very clean and had fantastic views. Breakfast was great by the pool every morning. Definitely a hidden gem!
Okay, so this hotel is located at the top of some pretty steep hills, which we were not originally anticipating. However, the location is totally worth any walk up the hills (which we made multiple times, so totally doable). First, the views—the sunrises from your hotel room and the views from the pool area can not be beat. Some of the best photos from the trip occurred here. Second, you’re a bit removed from downtown Montezuma (about a 10-15 minute walk total), which we liked. It was quieter and with quiet comes animals. On multiple days, we were woken up to the sounds of howler monkeys (I mean, how cool is a howler monkey alarm when in Costa Rica?!) At breakfast once morning, a howler monkey literally showed up in the tree next to us—feet away. The coolest experience! Third, the staff at the hotel were super friendly and provided lots of good recommendations for places to eat/things to do in Montezuma. Especially if you have a car, but even if you don’t, I recommend this hotel when staying in Montezuma! …
