We feel so fortunate to have landed up at El Tajalin. The building is beautiful--nice, dark wood floors throughout. Our room was spacious with a small fridge, nice bathroom, safe, and beautifully folded towels and hibiscus flowers on the beds. The third floor has a rooftop teraza with hammocks, a living and dining area and a communal kitchen. We were...

I was only here for one night, in the room with the three twin beds. It smelled a bit moldy, but you're in Montezuma, so I think it's pretty hard to avoid that. The location right next to the park is fantastic and off the main street, but only a 2-minute walk away from everything. The A/C worked great and...

Thanks for your comment, indeed the long winter and the much rain that luckily has fallen in Montezuma, could have caused this inconvenience since in December still the last rains fell. Thank you for choosing Hotel el Tajalin, best regards

Sitting here in the upstairs lounge/communal area and enjoying the breeze off the ocean (the hotel isn't waterfront but only 200 ft away). Antonio and Marlan are wonderful hosts and take pride in their hotel. My A/C went on the fritz and Antonio changed it out immediately first thing this morning. The free coffee in the morning is great up...

We had a nice stay at this hotel- it felt very safe, was in a good location just up the main street, and had great air conditioning. We came at kind of a slow time, so we were the only ones there. I would definitely stay there again, especially since it seemed to be a lot better than some of...

Excellent spot for the value ! Also the host is very friendly and understanding despite confusing their staff of my booking errors. Overall we were wishing we stayed longer than our 2 night stay there. We really enjoyed using the kitchen and meeting others there- was up on their top floor. Kind of a geeky comment but also really liked...

The hotel is very clean and well kept with a very friendly and helpful staff. It's very close to the beach, city center, restaurants and stores. It has a really great common area with a kitchen, seating and hammocks overlooking the park, which is a great quiet place to chill out. The hotel staff is very friendly and attentive and...

The hotel is simple, clean, with a safe included. We stayed in a suite for 4 days - a mere 2 minute walk to the beach. We enjoyed the communal cooking area with access to the hammocks, a television (if someone wanted to watch it) and a book exchange. The staff were friendly, great service and helpful pointing us in...

This is the type of place where you try to stack as many of your things up as high as you can so that you minimize the surface area your things touch. The bed, which is definitely the most important thing that matters in a hotel room, was the only part of the room I felt 'clean' in. It was...

With all respect you deserve, it looks like the place where you stayed was not the Tajalin Hotel. It is struggling to find a person to stay several days in a hotel and having so many things that do not bother and not approaching the reception for expressing their dissatisfaction or even ask for a room change. Your words are...
