Almost all the rooms we saw in this hotel had a window inside the hotel basically. You had to pay extra for the air conditioner. There was a kitchen offered which was opened from 8 am to 8 pm. The stuff seemed rather not interested. However, they helped organizing certain activities and our shuttle. One very positive point about this...

The location makes this place an ideal place to take a load off Montezuma. The room was a little too pricey for what it was, but I did travel during Christmas, the most expensive time of year. The best beaches in Montezuma are not the beaches right in town. Make sure to visit the beaches in between the Ylang Ylang...

We had a lovely spacious room with our own bathroom and a balcony. 3 of us shared the room and there were 2 double beds and one single bed. Though we didn't have time to use them much, the communal areas were lovely too. Our balcony looked over gardens/a park and we saw birds and animals every day. It is...

We booked 1 night here when we arrived in Montezuma. The reception staff were helpful and checked us in quickly. They also gave us information on bus times to other towns. The room itself was a bit dated, and the bed wasn't the comfiest. The fan was OK, but maybe all rooms should have AC. We were on the ground...

Good value for money. It doesn't provide breakfast but it has a kitchen where you can cook your own as well as lunch and dinner. The lady who runs this hotel is lovely and very friendly. We did have issues with our bin being emptied and our towels replaced. They were done on the first day but not on the...

Beautifully cool, yes, it's important, many hotels in the area do not have AC! Hotel Aurora is nestled on the edge of Montezuma. It is easily within walking distance of downtown as well as the gorgeous Costa Rican Pacific Coast, known for its stunning sunsets. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Aurora, it has FREE wifi and spacious common...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for only one night. It started out bad and continued true the stay! The girl in the reception had a bad attitude, and everything seemed to be ha hassle to here.. The aircon was old, and the fan didn't work. Of course you can not expect to much, but the attitude on the staff...

We stayed here on a recent trip because my fiance had stayed there years ago with some friends. His experience was a bit different. I have no complaints about the hotel.

We were deposited on the beautiful, but somewhat littered, volcanic and sandy beach (picture below) in Montezuma by a water taxi from Jaco one morning. That boat trip was an adventure in itself because no docks or marinas are involved. The crew wraps some luggage in big plastic bags and lugs it onto the boat by wading through the surf....
