Stayed for 5 days in Hotel Luz de Mono and spotted more wildlife there then in some of the national parks in Costa Rica. Capuchin and howler monkeys, pisotto's, agouti's, bats and then there's the pool iguana that shows up everyday to warm up by the pool. Apart from that the rooms are spacious and cleaned everyday (and come with... More

We really loved our stay in Luz de Mono. We had originally booked two nights on booking.com and due to the hurricane Otto we were unable to reach Montezuma on time to stay there. The hotel were well within their rights to charge us for it, but instead they let us cancel for free. When we did finally make it... More

Monkeys livea round the hotel. And they come to the hotel and nearby food places to beg for food. Squirels, birds, ant eaters and alot of other animals live in the area as well. They have a nice big pool and its 2 minutes fromcthe beach. The breakfast was ok - but not more than that. Now to the bad... More

We stayed at Luz de Mono for one night and wish we had stayed longer. The family that runs the place were very helpful and seemed like genuinely nice people. We made a error in our dates and booked one more night than needed. From the cancellation policy from our booking they could have easily said "too bad" but when... More

This hotel is located in a huge jungle garden with lots of wildlife. We saw Cappuchin monkeys, Agouti, Iguanas and heard Howler monkeys. We stayed in one of the ground floor private rooms. The room was basic but clean, with hot water. The best part of this hotel was the pool with resident iguana called Jorge. We relaxed around the... More

Inside all the action but feels outside. Comfortable bungalow in the jungle with air conditioning and TV. Porch with hammock, teaming with wildlife, safe and secure feeling. Locked my keys in the car and killed my battery and what normally would have been an act of Congress, the staff got it done with great inginuity. Reasonable rates with awesome breakfast... More

We are a young couple traveling relatively cheap. Pros: the hotel grounds are amazing. It feels like you're in the middle of a rainforest, even though you are meters away from the town. The pool is refreshing. It's only 2 minutes away from the (nicer) beach in town and 3 minutes from the main area with restaurants and bars and... More

Just returned from a week long trip to Montezuma and stayed one night at Luz de Mono and loved it. I was travelling alone and felt welcome and safe at all times while staying there. Everything about my stay was perfect. I had emailed to make a reservation and they responded promptly to all questions that I had. The girls... More

Saw at least 10 different species of wildlife in surrounding gardens. The room was super clean even with the beach so close to the property. Loved having a satisfying breakfast with an audience of monkeys and then heading to the beach for a refreshing swim. Returned to an outdoor shower and a dip in the pool with more exotic wildlife...

The staff here are wonderful and very attentive to their customers' needs. My wife and I had a casita up the hill from the reception desk which gave us a good deal of privacy and even gave us the opportunity to see capucine and howler monkeys outside our cabin in the morning. Breakfast was the typical Costa Rican breakfast, but... More
