“Great hotel and lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

We had a fabulous three night stay here. Room was spacious and clean. Pool area is lovely. Monkeys, squirrels, geckos and loads of birdlife in the grounds. We had been concerned about the lack of air conditioning but this was no problem at all as the rooms were breezy and the ceiling fans very effective. Staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Only a two minute walk into the centre of the town. A big thank you to Lora who runs the hotel for making us so welcome. Oona & David.

We felt very welcome here, there staff were very kind & friendly . Thank you Rosio & Laura you made our stay special. The hotel is right by the beach the sound of the waves Lulls you to sleep at night and the birds & oceaan wake you in the morning. Right in town but the thick jungle gardens full of monkeys & birds keep the noise out. Lovely jungle graden full of Howler monkeys and white facet cappuchins. Lots of birds and plants. Monkeys Greet you at breakfast and Laura gives you Bananas to feed them. We had a delux room which was great for the price plenty of room , good sized bathroom with powerful shower and plenty of hot water. good breakfast choice so something different everyday. We had really good and One really bad experiences with hotels in Costa Rica but we would certainly recommend Luz de Mono to everyone who wants a pleasant comfortabel stay in Montezuma for a good price.

Room Tip: Take a delux room iTS worth that little extra

In Montezuma you want to be close to the beach and the small town (actually, about one block) where the restaurants, shops and street crafts vendors are. Luz de Mono is right next to all that, but its surrounding thick jungle garden isolates it from the noise and the hassle. All you hear from your room are the birds and the waves (plus the occasional motorcycle, of course). No restaurant service is offered now, except for breakfast, when white-faced monkeys and magpies actually stop by the tables. The place needs some maintenance, but everything basically works.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room. They have high ceilings, better ventilation and view,

We loved our stay here in a deluxe room with garden view. One whole wall is replaced with windows to look into the garden. From our room and the pool and at breakfast we saw howler and white face monkeys, iguanas, coatis, basilisk lizards and lots of birds.
The reception are extremely kind, welcoming and full of good advice.
Good location in town and next to the beach.
Nice breakfasts.
Loved our stay here.

The hotel is located by the Montezuma beach. The beach is not swimmable due to rip tides, but it is beautiful none the less. The swimming pool is large enough to swim laps, and was clean. The hotel grounds is like a jungle oasis, with trees, flowers and plenty of wildlife to see. The breakfast included, is a choice of five selections, which were good and was enough food to start your day. It is available from 7:30 - 9:30, so if you want coffee prior to this time there is a great bakery located just next to the property which opened up at 6:30am
The room was clean, it is an open air room (with screening to out doors), with a large fan but no AC, The fan was adequate to keep you cool enough to sleep using no covers. The shower had plenty of hot water and was large enough to move around in. The room was quite spacious hosting a queen and single bed with cable TV available.

Replacing the bed mattress would move this room up to an excellent. It was lumpy and hard to sleep on.

Room Tip: Try and get an upstairs room closest to the roof, as the monkey hang over the roof edge and greet yo...

Perfect location literally steps from the beach and the centre of the village, yet peaceful and in a beautiful setting. Lots of monkeys, birds, and other wildlife steps from your room! The pool is great when you are tired of the salty ocean water. Good breakfast (included) with delicious coffee. Friendly staff, within 5 minutes a minor problem with our showerhead was fixed. We stayed in the 'townhouse' style rooms and obviously we could hear some people outside the room due to proximity, but this was more a factor of how loud they were talking early in the morning and late at night (i.e. lack of common sense on their part). Our room was clean and bug-free!!!! (a problem in other places we stayed in Costa Rica). Overall highly recommended.

Monkeys, lizards and all kinds of creatures surround these cabins. We loved staying here. The cabinas were spacious,airy and clean. The layout is very unique. Location is beachfront and the pool is gorgeous too.
Great staff, free breakfast. All in all, really good value.
I want to go back!
