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

Sitting here in the upstairs lounge/communal area and enjoying the breeze off the ocean (the hotel isn't waterfront but only 200 ft away). Antonio and Marlan are wonderful hosts and take pride in their hotel. My A/C went on the fritz and Antonio changed it out immediately first thing this morning. The free coffee in the morning is great up...

We had a nice stay at this hotel- it felt very safe, was in a good location just up the main street, and had great air conditioning. We came at kind of a slow time, so we were the only ones there. I would definitely stay there again, especially since it seemed to be a lot better than some of...

Excellent spot for the value ! Also the host is very friendly and understanding despite confusing their staff of my booking errors. Overall we were wishing we stayed longer than our 2 night stay there. We really enjoyed using the kitchen and meeting others there- was up on their top floor. Kind of a geeky comment but also really liked...
