My husband and I were on our honeymoon. We drove from Carrillo to Montezuma arriving with no reservation. We were hesitant to make reservations ahead given our experiences with the previous few days accommodations which were booked without viewing. We were pleasantly surprised to stumble on this hotel. The staff were very friendly and showed us the room before we...

We stayed here for 7 nights and wish we'd booked longer. The room is basic, no mod cons, but in paradise all you need is a hammock (and air con is great). Very clean, staff friendly, free coffee in the morning. The pool is a great place to relax, could do with a clean, but the maintenance man (sorry I...

Hotel El Jardin is a fantastic little hotel right in the middle of Montezuma, within steps of the beach, local restaurants, stores, and tour operators. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the pool is lovely. The rooms are all nice, clean, and have air-conditioning which is essential for us to cool off from the heat. Mariel is the hotel's Front...

We stayed in the casa ("Bungalow with two rooms" on the website) and loved it. The staff were all lovely - particularly the groundskeeper Weyland. He went out of his way to be helpful. If your Spanish is good, chatting him up is definitely a good idea. The casa itself was much more spacious than we expected. It's a heck...

The staff are very friendly and helpful to ensure an awesome stay. The pool is lovely, though could be left running longer. A great location just minutes walk to the park, beach, restaurants... you name it.

This hotel is right at the top of the main street in town, but it's quiet at night so you can get a good night's sleep. The rooms are roomy and nice, very clean, and some have hammocks outside. The pool is great, it's 2 tiered so you can be at the top peering down at the other pool w...

We were so pleased with our choice. The hotel was beautiful, in a great location with excellent views. The staff Maria and Florencia were very friendly offering advice and helping to book trips and transport. We visited the waterfall, Butterfly Garden and went on the zip wire. Thanks to Maria we were also lucky enough to see some turtles released...

This is the kind of place that is really frustrating because with a bit of effort and bit of thought, it could be spot on. You've got a great location, nice gardens, a pretty good pool, hammocks and balconies but the accommodation, service and character need a bit of work. So as it is you have to take the rough...
