This Hotel is by the church/park. The place is nice, we stayed in room #10 which was very spacious, with AC, fridge and balcony. Space for 4 people, on the 3rd floor you can find a common area where you can see TV, rest and cook. We were able to see other rooms which were no as good as #10...

Beautiful hotel with spacious room at the end of main street. Swimming pool was very welcome as this is a HOT country. Great staff. This is a tiny village, but well worth the trip. Our room had a nice lounge area in front where you could watch the bustle of the town and enjoy relaxing. Beach was uncrowded and very...

Nice owners, easy to work with, great rooms, very clean, excellent view of the central park in town. Very close to all the restaurants, other hostels, and bars. I would certainly stay here again. The rooms with AC are clutch.

It was about 2 minute walk away from the beach. The bedroom and bathroom are huge! The guy who runs the place in the morning/day is super nice and helpful. He gave great directions to the waterfall which is about 15 minutes away and told us about baby turtles that were hatching when we got back to the hotel. It's...

Found this on trip advisor and booked based on reviews and price. Very Clean! the staff is so friendly and helpful. I got cut up on some rocks and they took an aloe plant and used it to help. The lounge on the top floorwas a peaceful solitude. There is a full kitchen if you want to cook your own...

Great hotel, with the great service and kind staff. It is about 1 minute walk to the beautiful beach, where water is calm and warmer than in the bathtub! You will be right in the centre on Montezuma, however place is not noisy. Rooms are very clean and have AC. Also there is a great terrace with the hammocks and...

On the end of the road was this cosy hotel with the most friendly staff! Just a short walk to the beach and ASVO where you can sea turtle babies hatch. Fresh and clean rooms with AC and well working wi-fi. Can warmly recommend this hotel!

This place is super convenient in terms in location and offers the basics - we had a great stay. The hotel also had wifi in all the rooms and not just the common area which was pretty nice and not all hotels in Montezuma offer this.

Thank you Carla for your comment, actually the hotel is equipped with 3 different repeaters to amplify the Wi-Fi signal or one on each floor, strong enough for the free service to go to the rooms on each floor. regards

We feel so fortunate to have landed up at El Tajalin. The building is beautiful--nice, dark wood floors throughout. Our room was spacious with a small fridge, nice bathroom, safe, and beautifully folded towels and hibiscus flowers on the beds. The third floor has a rooftop teraza with hammocks, a living and dining area and a communal kitchen. We were...

I was only here for one night, in the room with the three twin beds. It smelled a bit moldy, but you're in Montezuma, so I think it's pretty hard to avoid that. The location right next to the park is fantastic and off the main street, but only a 2-minute walk away from everything. The A/C worked great and...

Thanks for your comment, indeed the long winter and the much rain that luckily has fallen in Montezuma, could have caused this inconvenience since in December still the last rains fell. Thank you for choosing Hotel el Tajalin, best regards
