We came here after staying one night at Los Mangos and hating it (see review there). We stayed the first night in room #3 and the second night in room #4. I would say hands down room #3 was better. I wouldn't recommend #4, only because it was much smaller and the bathroom was tiny. Both rooms were very clean, and room #3 bed was so comfortable. Don't let the front of the building fool you, this is a beautiful place, just walk to the back and see. They have a beautiful garden, lots of hammocks, a/c, a tidal pool (which is pretty cool, just watch out for the crabs). The service was pretty good, and the woman was nice enough to show us a bunch of rooms before we decided on #3. The breakfast crepes were really good (although not included and kinda pricey). Also they do a cash discount, so make sure you stop by the ATM before paying. There is one in town now.
If this place is booked, take a look at El Jardin. We thought about staying there too but we liked how this was out of town a bit. But it looked nice and the rooms looked nice. Just a matter of where you want to stay.
Make sure in Montezuma you hike the waterfalls. Also eat at Ylang Ylang. You have to walk on the beach 10 min to get there, but it's beautiful. A bit pricier but the food is worth it!
Also, it has only minimal parking, but you can park on the road right out front and it's just fine. Just don't leave anything in your car and you'll be okay.
