The rooms are confortables and prettys and the place with the jacuzzi and the pool is very beautiful with a lot of flowers vegetation sculptures.. When the sun is hier you just have to...

we stayed here 2 nights and were satisfied. small and simple room that could have used some updating. had all the basics, as well as a hammock and 2 rocking chairs outside on the shared balcony. dark and bare room, but at least had AC, which we needed! grounds were kept very nicely [like a garden] and the location was...

I stayed here for one night with a group of friends. The location is good if you want to be close to town. There are lots of steps so make sure you can handle stairs. The grounds were ok but the pool was really dirty. Our room was in a nice location, next to the pool but it was to...

We chose El Jardin because of its proximity to town and good reviews. It's location was great, the room was clean, and the AC (inside) and hammocks (outside) were perfect. Unfortunately, the other guests were incredibly loud - small children screaming from the early evening until 10PM, and American teenagers from 10PM on. Other people have noted that noise from...

My sister and niece and I spent several nights at El Jardin Hotel in Montezuma. We arrived in Montezuma across the strait by fast boat from Heradura, which was a fun adventure in itself, especially because we ended up switching boats mid trip (long story, but it comes down to Costa Ricans trying to be accommodating because the boat we...

We liked this place! We were at El Jardin for four nights, had a room just beside the pool, facing the jungle, so really street noise was not an issue for us. The grounds were very beautiful and the pool was a real plus too. Great monkey sightings late every afternoon from the pool! The hotel is within walking distance...

So where to start... Booked 3 nights here after reading good reviews on this site. This place is a dump. The people who have review this hotel highly either work there or live in a slum. Asked to change room instantly after seeing the room we'd been given, but was refused because I had run the tap in the bathroom...

This place is way too expensive and dreadful. No welcome, no breakfast, they tried to overcharge us for a room (you pay an extra charge for paying by card and then they tried to charge us again on the exchange rate... Our AC flooded into a pool on the floor, they did fix it fairly quickly but there was really...

My wife and I walked around the town a bit and then decided on El Jardin. The guys at reception were very friendly and I think they gave us some snacks or fruit even before we checked it :) We did have an issue with the air conditioner in our first unit and they moved us to the next one...

weak. its right in the middle of town so if you get a "cheaper room" which is wildly overpriced, about 90 to 100, you are right by the rowdy, noisy, and super dirty road which keeps going all night. people are yelling outside your door in the middle of the night. big nasty cockroaches in the bedroom, bathroom, etc., they...
