Stayed here 3 nights. I'll start right with the biggest con as this may make people think twice. The double bed wasn't full length, with a single pillow my feet hung off the end of the bed (I'm 5'10" - not exactly an NBA player). This wouldn't be so bad, except the slanted roof of the building was at the...

Both times I've visited Montezuma I've stayed here. It is clean, safe, and has private bathrooms. ( a few other spots have shared bathrooms although they are mainly hostels) The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful - so much so, that as I was checking out. guests were lining up to hug the staff good-bye. If you are looking for...

Very friendly & helpful staff; safe/ secure lodging; fairly quiet for central town lodging; decent food - I especially like the mocha chiller smoothie and the chicken fried rice entree; nice outdoor patio for breakfast (included). Some rooms are "inside" rooms & the "windows" look out onto the hallway BUT these are also some of the largest ones. Daily house...

The rooms were clean. The stay included breakfast. The air conditioning in the room worked great. The shower was clean and hot. The wifi worked as advised. For the $25/night (off season), I'd be tempted to stay here for a couple weeks If I had the opportunity.

My wife and 2 kids stayed at El Sano Banano for 4 days in late December. We had a great time, and enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean, staff was excellent, offered us us some advice on where to find to good ceviche, and the included breakfast was ample. We didn't make much use of Ylang Ylang's facilities (sister hotel),...

The staff are very nice and helpful, the breakfasts were very good the coffee excellent. There are three tables out front which are the best to sit and watch the craziness go by. Order yourself an Imperial sit back and enjoy the view. The rooms if you're expecting the Ritz it ain't. There's no hair dryer, fridge or tv, but...
