My family and I ate here last week and wow great food overlooking the ocean. I try to eat here whenever I go to Monterrico. Their french fries are absolutely wonderful. Their hamburgers are meaty and my wife liked the ceviche. Great great food with a great great view.

We stayed in this awesome hotel for just one night. The reception staff are lovely and let us check in early. Our room was large with A/C. The shower was not too warm but not a problem as Monterrico is hot! Our room was next to the huge swimming pool. The restaurant attached is on the gorgeous black sand beach,...

I took my family there for one day and we stayed on the beach. I found the rooms quite cramped and there were mosquitoes in the room. I believe it has since be re-mondenised so I am sure it will now be a lot better than it was.

Wondering why a person who stayed at the hotel a year ago, writes a rather awkward review now? I hope it is not what it seems to be. By the way we do constantly make improvements. Look up our latest fotos in Facebook. Thanks for your compliment concerning our service.

The hotel is well located right on the beach. Unfortunately many of the rooms and the grounds with the pool are seperated from the main hotel by a sand road. Food was very good and well presented but a bit pricey. The pool was superb and fit for a 5star hotel with a swim-up bar, and we had the pleasure...

I didn't enjoy my stay at this hotel unfortunately. I found the website confusing in terms of the various room options and where they are situated on the property. I chose the Small and Simple rooms which are in the restaurant area on the side of the road closest to the beach. Well what that translates to is a set...

We were for a business trip, and the place looks good for us. But inside is better than outside, the pool is fantastic, is huge for the neighborhood and the service, splendid. We spend almost a week, and every time they served us, nicely. We played volleyball also, they have a court in the sand. The room was normal, but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is the best place in Monte Rico if you want to be on the beach and close to the center of the village (300m). Our guests apreciate a friendly and helpful service and great food. Our restaurant won several gastronomic prices. The restaurant is right on the beach and from here you can enjoy sunsets almost everyday (august to april) and sunsrises too (nov - feb). Our rooms are clean (!) And comfortable although not luxurious. Some have a/c all the rest ventiladors. Besides double rooms we have rooms with 3, 4 or 5 beds.
