We stayed here for 5 nights at the end April/beginning of May. The rooms are really clean, we had a cabina high up so we overlooked the town and the sea so stunning views. ALL the staff without exception were amazing, so attentive, so friendly, the rooms are spotless and air con was a definite plus. The position is really...

I stayed here for 2 nights in early May. Out of the 5 other hotels I stayed at this was the best! I wish I had time during my trip to stay longer. The room was simple , but very comfortable and the views of the gardens and ocean were fantastic! The staff, especially Ivannia was very helpful and friendly....

I really enjoyed my stay. Rooms near street can be loud, but overall great. Ivannia at the front desk was wonderful. She had a great command of English. Always willing to help!! A great resource for tourist. Rooms were clean and AC was great. Pool was another amenity that was great. Wifi worked very well, which is not the case...

I think that this hotel is one of the better options in Montezuma. We stayed in a room near the pool and enjoyed it. The room is simple, but comfortable. I would love to think the woman who works at the front desk, she is an absolute sweetheart! The hotel is close to the little town that is Montezuma and...

We booked the upper bungalow at El Jardin for 4 nights this past March. When we arrived the manager had a difficult time just getting the door to the bungalow opened (not a good sign). When we walked in I wondered how recently it had been rented out. It was very grungy and dirty. The light bulb in the kitchen...

Dear guest, you booked the bungalow in January and had the possibility to see photo, details and location of our hotel that is in the center of the village. Signing the reservation request you acepted the cancellation policy that is well explained. When we take you to the bungalow this one was clean and the lights perfectly working since when...

We unknowingly arrived on a big celebration evening, so it was extremely noisy all night long, with music, 4 wheel ATVs, and motorbikes right by the hotel. But the rest of the nights were much quieter. The hotel is set among a beautiful garden on the hillside of Montezuma, within a block of the town. The pool was great, as...

Set on a leafy hill at the entrance of Montezuma, offering a refreshing pool (not so much shade though) and a stroll away from the beaches such as all the restaurants and shops, El Jardin has all the ingredients for a nice stay in this layback hippie beach town. It can be noisy outside, especially on weekends. We had a...

The plus of this hotel is the location in Montezuma. It's right in the center so no steep climbing on the hills of Montezuma. There is a nice garden with a pool so you can relax in a comfortable area. The down side are the rooms. Very basic, nothing extra, needs to be updated. Very bad lights in the room.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon. We drove from Carrillo to Montezuma arriving with no reservation. We were hesitant to make reservations ahead given our experiences with the previous few days accommodations which were booked without viewing. We were pleasantly surprised to stumble on this hotel. The staff were very friendly and showed us the room before we...

We stayed here for 7 nights and wish we'd booked longer. The room is basic, no mod cons, but in paradise all you need is a hammock (and air con is great).
