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. We spent two nights here and were drawn to staying here for the swimming pool. The pool felt like a visit to heaven after a day in the heat and...

We were staying at this Hotel several nights and overall it was good. The pool is smaller than on the pictures but fine & the jacuzzi is nice. The room we stayed in was small, but nevertheless was equipped with airconditioning and a fridge. It basically covered most things needed. Unfortunately the wifi coverage is not good at all. It...

Our room was clean and well taken care of, the location was great and the staff was kind. The pool and balcony hammocks were especially appreciated and the AC and wifi worked well. The price was pretty reasonable for what we got. We would stay here again.

The hotel is very reasonably priced which was our driving decision behind staying here. We got a double standard room with 2 doubles for $85 a night. Unfortunately the rooms with better views were filled so our room had a street view, but didn't bother me too much, although the other rooms had hammocks on their patios which would have...

Stayed here for 3 nights while backpacking around costa rica. When we checked in we were originally in a room by the road. We were asked very kindly if we could switch rooms as they needed that room for someone else. We moved to a room just above where the pool is located, which had a seating area out front...
