“Above & Beyond : A proprietor with a big heart”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Having found Montezuma and it's owner Carlos after rolling into Montezuma a few nights ago we were very pleased with the cleanliness and price of his hotel. The real difference however was the incredible help and effort he made to assist us after having the unfortunate luck of having our backpack stolen while at Mal Pais beach. Carlos helped the coordination and receipt of a new rental car key that had to be flown over from San Jose and also provided a lot of advice and support over the entire incident.

His unsolicited and sincere support helped make a bad situation much better and more importantly reflected a heart and soul that makes us all richer people when we have the opportunity to meet them.

Thanks again Carlos! Your support and kindness will not be forgotten. Hope to see you again soon.

George & Patricia

Friends and I were traveling through Costa Rica for a while by the time we got to Momtezuma. We had read some great reviews about Montezuma Pacifico prior to arranging a three night stay. The rooms are very simple, but are clean, spacious and in a great location. Carlos, the hotel owner, was the icing on the cake. He was extremely kind and accommodating, helping us with matters such as getting laundry done, to giving us tips and directions to and from destinations. I would definitely recommend this place for travelers who are looking for good value and a trusting helping hand - Carlos is the best!

I wandered into town a few days ago with no reservation anywhere and on a budget. Montezuma Pacifico was the fourth and last place I checked out. It had everything I needed at a great price. It's only a few more dollars than the seedy hostels in town and the rooms are way nicer. Air conditioning, hot shower, a safe, a TV, and a mini-fridge. Most importantly, the bed in the room was king sized, brand new, and extremely comfortable.
It was a one minute walk away from the main street, which is important if you don't want to be woken up at sunup by a bunch of ATVs and dirt bikes driving around. It's a three minute walk to the main beach. I woke up every morning to the sound of birds.
It does not have a party atmosphere, which was appealing to me as I liked to end my nights with a beer or two on the balcony and get to bed peacefully.
Carlos, the owner, is a very accommodating gentleman. He is always around to answer any of your questions about the town, and most noteworthy is the fact that he's completely honest. He will not give a recommendation if he doesn't have one, and he won't attempt to overcharge you like many of the other places/people in town.
If I were to return to Montezuma, I'd definitely head back to this place.

I have a card with a different phone number than the one listed here on Tripadvisor, so I'll write it down here in case it's helpful: 800-722-4342

I've stayed with Carlos on two occasions for a total of 11 peaceful nights in the past two years at the Montezuma Pacific Hotel. My husband and I first met Carlos, the owner, on the ferry to Paquera. We struck up a friendly conversation and after learning that we were headed to Montezuma, he invited us to check out his hotel.
The hotel is simple, very clean and secure. The location cannot be beat. It's right in town behind the church, far enough removed from the main strip to avoid the noise, but easy access to everything. Rooms have strong ac, safes, and hot showers. My favorite is room 5 with its charming private balcony. We saw gorgeous magpie bluejays, iguanas, and even white faced capuchin monkies there. If you're not able to snag room 5, don't fret! There is a large common balcony open to all.
The hotel is a great value for the area but it's greatest appeal for me is Carlos! He is a wonderfully gracious gentleman that shares great conversation over delicious costa rican coffee. Does it get any better? Not that I've found!

We stayed here on recommendation of my daughter who stayed 2 years before. What a great place. Good, clean, basic rooms at a great value. Comfortable beds, good showers and secure; caty-corner to the cute city park and church. Great upstairs balconies--one for the whole place and another private one for room #5 I think. Sweet.

The best feature thou was Carlos who runs the place. He was so friendly and helpful during our stay. We wanted to do Cabo Blanco early on a Wednesday (after it was closed for 2 days) well before the bus would take us there; he arranged for a taxi to take us and pick us up at the end of the day (our plan worked: we saw scads of wild life, including male Howlers; a whole troop of White-nosed Coati's; ant-eaters; white-faced monkeys!). We asked if he thought we could put together a private "tour" for a day that included snorkeling and fishing. He set us up (4 of us) with "Armando" and his crew ("Pato & Franciso). We spent an awesome day on Armando's Pongo: we dropped off Pato w/ supplies on Tortuga Island and snorkeled for a couple hours... returned to a feast of a lunch Pato cooked--it really blew us away; spent a few hours on the island; trolled on the way home; caught a 30" needle fish; saw 2 hump-backs with their calves; basically did whatever we wanted for the whole day.

Carlos is a very nice man. He makes you feel welcome and helped us have a great time. We'll be going back and staying w/ him again when we can.

Room Tip: Look at room 5 or 7... one of them has a private balcony. The other is just off another balcony and...

Great value hotel on a quiet street in montezuma, just set back from the noise of the main town. The room we had was nice and big with two good beds, decent air con, and a big bathroom. Also had safe, fridge a cable tv. Good value place for a town which seems to be much more expensive than it really should be. The owner Carlos is very friendly and helpful.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights in March 2013. If you are looking for an inexpensive stay in Montezuma you'll be hard pushed to find anything, the whole area is ridiculously overpriced!

Hotel Pacifico has really clean rooms which included a wardrobe, fridge, safety box and en suite shower room (which my partner got an electric shock from) and the sink leaked. The management offered us another room but we didn't bother to change as left Montezuma the following day.

For the area the rooms are reasonably priced and have really good aircon systems (you will need this in the sweltering heat) although you can help yourself to coffee or tea (no milk) in the morning they do not have an included breakfast or restaurant but you can use the kitchen to cook meals if you want to save money. They also had a common area but we never saw anyone using it and did not meet any other guest, which is a bit of a shame if you are looking to mingle.

Montezuma is very small, so the hotel is within easy walking distance to the beach and main strip of shops and restaurants.

If you plan on visiting Montezuma make sure you have exuberant amounts of money with you as everything is expensive i.e to hire a Quad bike for 6 hours was $60 and to get a shared minibus back to the airport was $55 per person or alternatively don't bother wasting your time or money in Costa Rica.
