We booked the upper bungalow at El Jardin for 4 nights this past March. When we arrived the manager had a difficult time just getting the door to the bungalow opened (not a good sign). When we walked in I wondered how recently it had been rented out. It was very grungy and dirty. The light bulb in the kitchen...

Dear guest, you booked the bungalow in January and had the possibility to see photo, details and location of our hotel that is in the center of the village. Signing the reservation request you acepted the cancellation policy that is well explained. When we take you to the bungalow this one was clean and the lights perfectly working since when...

We unknowingly arrived on a big celebration evening, so it was extremely noisy all night long, with music, 4 wheel ATVs, and motorbikes right by the hotel. But the rest of the nights were much quieter. The hotel is set among a beautiful garden on the hillside of Montezuma, within a block of the town. The pool was great, as...

Set on a leafy hill at the entrance of Montezuma, offering a refreshing pool (not so much shade though) and a stroll away from the beaches such as all the restaurants and shops, El Jardin has all the ingredients for a nice stay in this layback hippie beach town. It can be noisy outside, especially on weekends. We had a...

The plus of this hotel is the location in Montezuma. It's right in the center so no steep climbing on the hills of Montezuma. There is a nice garden with a pool so you can relax in a comfortable area. The down side are the rooms. Very basic, nothing extra, needs to be updated. Very bad lights in the room.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon. We drove from Carrillo to Montezuma arriving with no reservation. We were hesitant to make reservations ahead given our experiences with the previous few days accommodations which were booked without viewing. We were pleasantly surprised to stumble on this hotel. The staff were very friendly and showed us the room before we...

We stayed here for 7 nights and wish we'd booked longer. The room is basic, no mod cons, but in paradise all you need is a hammock (and air con is great). Very clean, staff friendly, free coffee in the morning. The pool is a great place to relax, could do with a clean, but the maintenance man (sorry I...

Hotel El Jardin is a fantastic little hotel right in the middle of Montezuma, within steps of the beach, local restaurants, stores, and tour operators. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the pool is lovely. The rooms are all nice, clean, and have air-conditioning which is essential for us to cool off from the heat. Mariel is the hotel's Front...

We stayed in the casa ("Bungalow with two rooms" on the website) and loved it. The staff were all lovely - particularly the groundskeeper Weyland. He went out of his way to be helpful. If your Spanish is good, chatting him up is definitely a good idea. The casa itself was much more spacious than we expected. It's a heck...

The staff are very friendly and helpful to ensure an awesome stay. The pool is lovely, though could be left running longer. A great location just minutes walk to the park, beach, restaurants... you name it.
