Nice hotel -- cute, small rooms. AC was a lifesaver. Restaurant is also good. Perfect location -- walking distance from the beach. You can also use the pool at their sister resort ~10 minute walk away.

Clean and comfy room. Price for two adults and a 14 & 15 yo was $90+tax. The staff is amazing and helpful. Our window faced a wall which wasn’t cool. Free coffee in the morning. Overall a good place to spend our first night in town and get our bearings.

HI! We are happy you found our staff to be helpful and amazing and that your room was clean and comfy. Some of our rooms have windows overlooking the park and some do face the inside of our building cutting out the noise of the village and making them more secure. All our rooms feature air conditioners and a great amenity is that you get to use the swimming pool and facilities at our beautiful sister hotel Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. We are glad you had a good stay and hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip through Costa Rica. Thank you for staying with us.

We had a nice stay at the Sano Banano. They were friendly and accommodating during our one night stay. The backyard dining area was beautiful and quiet. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Montezuma. Pura vida!

Thank you for staying with us. We are happy you had a pleasant stay and that you will recommend us.
We are in a great location and a wonderful benefit of staying with us is that you also get to use the swimming pool and grounds of the gorgeous Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. We are glad you also enjoyed our restaurant. Delicious food and wonderful staff. Pura Vida!

Came to the bar here one night to watch TV and the staff was so friendly and helpful that we decided to stay there the next night. Very clean room, great price. They also helped us set up a water taxi back to Jaco

Thank you for staying with us. We do take pride that we don't hire staff to be nice, instead we hire nice staff! and we are happy that was your experience. We can provide you with clean, comfortable and safe rooms, great food including vegan, vegetarian and gluten free, and also help with your tours and shuttles. We hope you will think of us if you visit Montezuma again.

The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and quiet with excellent showers and AC. Close enough to Chico's to grab a beer and walk back to the private outdoor patio. Next to the grocery store for daily essentials and drinks, and plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from. Next time I'm in Montezuma, I'll be staying here
