The property looks fine, pretty, well maintained, clean, but this bungelow was right at the top of a very steep walkway, so not very accessible for anyone with trouble walking, the pictures show decorated towel swans on the beds( they werent there) , a kitchen with a stove, ( no stove) very minimal, not many cups , plates , etc....,...

Dear Jane, when you called me on the phone I told you about the location of the bungalow, sorry about the swans, the maid forgot this detail because it was a very busy day, when you checked out our web site you also could see that we do not have parking and we let you park the car inside the...

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...

Dear Josh, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay, about the bungalow...when you made the reservation you knew that the bungalow has NO A/C and the location at the top of the hill, when you let us know about the shower we immediately fixed the problem, all the amenities inside the bungalow are well explain in the description and...

A cute boutique hotel in downtown montezuma. Property is well taken care of. We enjoyed the pool, which is clean. It's close to a supermarket and lots of restaurants. Soda naranja is the best. Street parking. Free wifi.

This hotel is right in the middle of town. The lady who ran the front desk was very nice and helpful with any questions we had. The property is nicely laid out and the rooms have their own hammock and outside chairs. The one drawback was a slight variability in rooms (we had to switch because of a scheduling issue),...

Perfect for stop in Montezuma. Clean and short way to everything! 2 minutes to the bus station, 2 minutes to the supermarket and 2 minutes to the ocean. 20 minutes walk to Montezuma falls :-) Pool area is amazing for a chill out break in the afternoon. Free coffee and tea over the whole day.

We made a last minute decision to stay in Montezuma after spending time in Santa Teresa and are so glad we did. Hotel El Jardin was a good base for the night, the room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The grounds and swimming pool were beautifully maintained and the staff were fantastic. The receptionist came to let us know that...

We were in Montezuma for one evening and stayed at this hotel. Right at the edge of the main drag, wonderful ocean views, and adequate lodging. It was clean and the AC worked fantastically, which was much needed with the humidity on the coast. The hammocks on the porch of each room were my favorite touch. I would gladly stay...

This little village is only a couple blocks long and a couple blocks wide so easy to get around. The Hotel El Jardin is in the heart of the village. Friendly staff and a very clean and refreshing swimming pool. Rooms are basic and clean. Wifi in lobby and at pool but not in some hotel rooms.

Really enjoyed this place at first but the pool is shared by so many and so close to town, it can get noisy. Tried to get some business done and had the most frustrating Wi-Fi experience of my life. On for 30 seconds, off for 2 minutes. Self-described patience of Job, no longer. Definition up with the staff but she...

El Jardin is centrally located right at the beginning of the main street in Montezuma and offers a nice get away while still being in the middle of the action.
