    Great location, super friendly staff, nice room and shower, great restaurant (although service can be a bit deficient and slow, but...pura vida haha). We had a great time during our stay at el sano banano. Recommended

    This was, I think, my fourth stay here. Discovered it by accident when I ran out of time to get to my next destination and have stayed here every time I'm in Costa Rica. Love the town and love this facility

    Nice quiet room but no windows. Locks only work with a key from the inside could be dangerous.

    Great location in cute beach town.

    Hotel location good, but rooms were dark and windows did not open. Service in the restaurant was very friendly but slow. Food was good. Overall Montezuma is nice beach town.

    Gutes Essen, nettes Personal

    Es ist eines der sehr zentral im beginnenden Trubel von Montezuma liegendes Hotel mit einem richtig guten Restaurant, das definitiv einen Besuch wert ist... In meinen Augen nicht so geeignet für Familien/Kinder

  • 2.0.Poor

    Besser nicht

    Wir haben ein 4er zimmer gebucht und dies war bei unserer Ankunft nicht verfügbar. Wir bekamen ein 2er Zimmer, dies war so klein, dass wir kein Olatz hatten um das Gepäck hinzustellen. Im Zimmer hatte es kein Safe. Es hatte Fenster, mit Ausblick auf die Treppe und jeder der die Treppe runter ging konnte uns gleich ins Zimmer schauen. Im Zimmer hatte es Vorhänge. Im Badezimmer nicht, somit konnte uns jeder auf dem Klo zuschauen. Die Fenster konnten nicht geöffnet werden, dementsprechend hat es gerochen. Das Bett war sehr unbequem. Unter den Schlafzimmer ist ein Restaurant, von 6uhr bis 22Uhr ist es sehr laut. Es riecht sehr fest nach Essen.

    Pokoje bez oken, bez lednic

    Čistota, služby, ochota personálu, umístění hotelu - skvělé. Bohužel však zásadní problém-informaci, že některé pokoje jsou bez oken, jsem nikde nenašla. Když dostanete pokoj bez oken, je to jako by Vás strčili do krabice od bot. Netrpím fobií, ale tam jsem jí měla. Stěhovali jsme se 2x a poslední noc byla jako v kobce. A poslední věc, na pokojích nejsou ani lednice, možná majitel chce, aby hosté utráceli u něj, ale v noci nemáte ani studenou vodu. I léky jsem musela skladovat u personálu v lednici na baru. Už nikdy více.

    No hay nada que hacer en el pueblo que son dos calles y se ve en 3 minutos. Playa peligrosa. No me mereció la pena y es caro
