The stay was awesome and the pool is incredible! Cheap and easy to arrive. The site is clean, safe, and it is so close from the Montezuma beach. For me, it was a good place to stay and visit other close beaches, like Santa Teresa and Malpaís.

Our family of three had an outstanding stay (4 nights) here. The service is excellent, the food is very good, and you cannot beat the location. They have reciprocity with an upscale resort down the beach and you have free access to their awesome pool. Our room was a bit dated and dark, but it was super clean and everything (including great A/C) worked fine. If you are someone who likes to spend lots of your time in your hotel room this place may not be for you. While everyone was super helpful, a special shout out should go out to Andreas who went above and beyond to answer all my questions and make sure we had the best experience. Great artisan chocolates as well, and they have a lovely back garden for you to enjoy meals, drinks, or general hanging out. Super sweet spot in a quaint little village - would definitely go back!

I expected the hotel to have a pool,but when I got there NO pool. They offer a pool from another hotel that's a mile away. The rooms were OK, a little small maybe. There are better options to stay nearby.

Hi, Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry if you were expecting the pool to be on-site. We do however explain on our website as well as third party sites that the pool is located at our sister hotel. It's very beautiful and worth the visit. We understand that for guests looking for an on-site pool our hotel would not be the most suitable option and therefore recommend guests to always read about the hotel details to ensure they are booking a hotel that suits their needs and therefore ensure a pleasant vacation. We encourage guests to go explore the town and it's beautiful surrounding areas. We are perfectly located in the center of town and are a great place to return to after a day of adventure and exploration. We hope you enjoyed Montezuma.
