Best place to stay in Montezuma. I've visited the town twice before, as a backpacker 20 years ago, and as a couple 15 years ago, but this time came with family and two kids plus mother-in-law, and splurged to stay in this hotel for first time. And it was worth it! Rooms are steps from beautiful beach with few or no people. Best beach in Montezuma is the one next to the hotel's in the direction of town, plus there's another "secret" beach 5 minutes walk in the other direction (with waterfalls, cairn garden). Grounds of hotel impeccable. Breakfast and dinner are included in a beautiful little restaurant on site, and the food is amazing - you won't want to go elsewhere. Bar area at restaurant is great hangout spot, with fantastic list of tropical drinks. Pool is small-is but good, very tropical and close to beach and restaurant. I'm not a yoga person, but we got up at 8am one day to do the session in the studio above restaurant, with beautiful views of ocean, and it was great way to start the day! Animals: saw multiple kinds of iguanas (including at restaurant and pool), bats hanging outside our room, monkeys high in trees, exotic insects, and more. We stayed in a family suite, kids enjoyed the loft with views of the ocean, and hammocks in front. About 10 minutes walk into town. Only slight pain was having to park our car in town by 6pm and take hotel 4x4 from there, but not too big of a deal. Very peaceful and beautiful end to our Costa Rica trip, and I would love to go back.
