Hotel Casacolores
Ranked #1 of 15 Montezuma B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Our family of 5 stayed at the Hotel Casacolores in early May 2012. The weather was good, though there was some rain since May is on the cusp of the rainy season. (Check the weather patterns in Costa Rica before you book a vacation there!)

The accommodation (a collection of bungalows) is fairly basic, but clean and spacious with full kitchen facilities. The property is a hike from town (up a steep hill), which wasn't a problem for us since we had a car. Our unit had two spacious bedrooms, a kitchen / eating area and a large porch. We were able to park our car right outside the cabin.

The property has a nice pool and the owners (Reuben and Catrina) are very helpful about virtually anything. We had our rental car broken into at Santa Teresa and had to deal with that issue while we were there. Reuben and Catrina let us use their phone and were most sympathetic. We felt completely safe at Casacolores -- and generally in Costa Rica -- but the car break-in (which occurred while we were swimming, within sight of the car) reminded us that one must be always vigilant (especially with a rental car).

I would happily return to Casa Colores!

Basic little houses but enough if you are not too picky. Nice garden and quiet atmosphere. Owners are very friendly. Price is fair for what you get. We enjoyed...
Only thing is that you are a bit far from beach and road is steep. You can get a cab for 4 dollars..

Casa Colores made all of our dreams come true. We had already been in Montezuma for 3 nights at a hostel where we had a less than pleasant experience. Arriving at Casa colores was more than I could have asked for! The bungalows were small but simple, clean, lovely, and stocked with everything you could need to cook....as well as a lovely front porch. The owners were super friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and a perfect getaway, made better by the owner's kids who joined us and were really cute! The only downside was the distance from the town, but taxis weren't too expensive if you did want to venture down to the main street of Montezuma. I would definitely come back here!

We spent 8 days at Casacolores in May and cannot recommend it enough. Gracious and interesting hosts who were full of information and very helpful. The scenery was wonderful and we enjoyed hanging out in the hammocks and by the pool. The walk to town was invigorating and we saw lots of howler monkeys on the way down. It was easy and cheap to get a taxi up the hill. We did the package including first and last night hotel by San Jose Airport and the shuttle to Montezuma and had three trips (horseriding, ziplining and snorkelling) and it was perfect. Looking forward to going back next year!

We stayed here for 17 days in March and had a blast! The bungalows were clean and comfortable and it's location up the hill from Montezuma was perfect. It cooled down beautifully at night for wonderfully comfy sleeps. We were traveling with several other families and had a total of 8 children with us and Casa Colores was safe, quiet and the perfect base for all of our activities, whether it was going to the beaches, the waterfalls or into town for a meal or groceries. Having our own kitchen was great! Whether it was just to keep stuff cool in the fridge or to make a delicious meal. We felt completely at home here and really didn't want to leave. Our hosts Ruben and Catrine and their staff were fabulous! They were so helpful and and really made this trip our best vacation ever! This was my fourth trip to Montezuma and not my last and no question we will always stay at Casa Colores.

We just loved the nice, clean and secure bungalows. Big verandas, nice pool and security 24/7 made this to one of the most affordable places we stayed at during our one month in Costa Rica.

It´s just 10 minutes walk from Montezuma (downhill) and maybe 15 minutes on the way back. The local bus from Cobano to Montezuma stops just by the small reception building. Very easy to get to.

If you are scandinavian (as we are) you can get all information and help you need in swedish as well.
