Nice nature, good location, rooms can be better

by (6 reviews) , Belgium Flag of Belgium

Goede lokatie op korte wandelafstand van het stadje muntezuma alsook de zee.
Prachtige tuin in de jungle met overvloed aan wildlife, groepen brulapen, eekhoorns, salamanders, gekko's,.'
Vriendelijke gastvrouw, mooie bar. Kamer is wat overprijst. Niet insectenproof.

De kamers zijn het minpunt. Veel spleten, gekko's tot in de kamer, muggen, een beetje verouderd. Bedden liggen wel goed en douche was goed.
Al bij al, oké maar te duur.

The staff at Luz de Mono are super friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a casita and awoke to the monkeys at 5:15am. This is our first visit and we'll definitely return.

Pool turned my daughter's hair green

After a long journey to Montezuma via the ferry, my small children were excited to take a swim in the pool. The pool was very warm and cloudy-had I not promised the kids, we would have skipped the swim. After a quick 20-minute swim, my daughter's blonde hair turned completely green. Fortunately, I had special shampoo that minimized the damage, but others should beware (you should also be aware that you will only get two small bars of soap and no shampoo). We were promised towels for the pool, but we never got them. The room was dingy. Both bedside lights were broken (one I unplugged because it scared me). The shower was particularly awful, very small, old, and claustrophobic. We had reserved one night with the anticipation of staying three nights, but we checked out immediately after breakfast (which was surprisingly good). Luz de Mono has an amazing location in terms of access to the beach and town, but recognize that that is all you are paying for . . .

Wakker geworden door een luid gekrijs. Geen idee wat voor beestje daar moord en brand schreeuwde. Terug ingedut opnieuw gewekt dit keer door de brulapen. Wat een heerlijk geluid! Gauw kleren aan en naar buiten. Ben spot eekhoorns en brulapen en weet het geluid op video vast te leggen. Ze zitten heel hoog in de boom dus een duidelijke foto is …

... and along the shore. It was my first time paddleboarding in the ocean and twenty fish jumped out of the water and over the board. A few slammed into my legs and for a second I thought they had bit me. It was shocking! The view of the coastline was impressive on the boat ride to and from the island. The cliffs, rock face and forestry were stunning. Upon return to Montezuma, we headed to see the ...

... daily swim, he ended our chat by stating in his pigeon English "I want you to know you are very welcome in my country". I remarked in the last entry that given tourism is responsible for most jobs here you might expect that friendliness towards paying visitors, but the way the same intrinsic warmth had obviously penetrated this chap, who didn't work in tourism and has lived here long before the first 'tourists' arrived, struck us both.

... were so excited to be in Costa Rica, while it was known for being wildly more expensive than all the other Central American countries, it was also renowned for being an extremely organised country with a very eco aware and conscious attitude to the environment, making it a very enjoyable & comfortable country to visit. The plan was to arrive and leave San Jose as quickly as possible, it was not a city to spend time in and being late afternoon we wanted to get on a bus before ...

... flying outside their shops, and restaurants. I guess I’m putting a downer on Monteverde, but it is a really good place to visit, just for the adventure and adrenaline… just don’t expect the full beauty of Costa Rica. Having said that, a short taxi ride away from town is where we went to do the Night Walk Tour.

I fully recommend ...
