Fodor's Expert Review Hotel El Jardín
West end of main road, Montezuma, Puntarenas, 60111, Costa Rica
Spread across a hill a few blocks from the beach, this hotel has recently refreshed rooms and villas with ocean, pool, and garden views. True to its name, rooms are scattered around a lush garden populated with bright-red ginger flowers and faux-stone indigenous sculptures. Teak paneling and furniture, stained-glass pictorial panels, and terraces with hammocks give this hotel style as well as comfort. If you don't mind the climb, ask for an upper room and you'll get a better view. There's no formal breakfast, but coffee, tea, and cookies are laid out in the reception area each morning. There's also Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
