Spent five nights here in April 2012. I suppose for $75 per night for a family of two adults and two kids you shouldn't complain, but I just didn't like this place, I thought the staff were a bit surly and miserable; my father who was travelling with us said the bland breakfasts reminded him of boarding school fare in Ireland in the 1950s - it was a daring guest who asked for a second cup of coffee in the morning. The hotel is in the middle of tiny Montezuma village; the restaurant is good if overpriced. Overall, I think it was Costa Rica, not just the hotel, that was dissapointing: overpriced, a bit mean, offering far less than the brochure suggested, and expecting the foolish tourist to be grateful for mediocre service. The one thing we did like was access to the Ylang Ylang resort pool, which the kids really enjoyed. Do a bit of reseach, there are much better places in Montezuma, even in the $100-$120 range.
