Perfect home for our Costa Rica holiday

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed 10 nights at the Howler Monkey Hotel. (We stayed here while we spent time touring around the south end of the peninsula. Though we did do a fair amount of cycling, I would recommend a car travelling further distances.) While we stayed at the howler monkey hotel, it felt like we had our own little home right on the water. We absolutely loved having a kitchen! We went to the nearby grocery store to pick up fresh fruits, veggies and meat almost daily. Every morning we had a fresh smoothie. It was great! Jim, the owner, was excellent. He is so friendly and helpful. We were very happy with our stay :)

Nice place to relax

  • 5 of 5

I went for a couple of days with two friends and found what we were looking for, an easy going place to relax.

The host was very kind and helped us go around. Santa Teresa is not far away but 4WD (or a bike) is better.

Idyllic stay at the Howler Monkey Hotel

  • 5 of 5

I am currently spending 12 months backpacking with my 8 year old twins and we just spent 10 wonderful days at the Howler Monkey Hotel. None of us wanted to leave and the kids asked me repeatedly on our bus to Montezuma could we go back. The cabins are a beautiful A-frame and the upstairs sleeping area is spacious and very cool. We used the fan though there were some nights we did not need to. We fell asleep and awoke to the sound of the ocean and occasionally, to our delight the sound of Howler Monkeys. Each cabin comes with a good basic kitchen with fridge and gas cooker and a bathroom. There are two supermarkets in walking distance and a few sodas and a very good bakery cafe. The local bus service gets you to Montezuma and Cabano on a regular basis. We did not have a car and never felt like we needed one.

Having Jim the owner onsite gave me an additional sense of security in knowing someone was always around. He offered heaps of advice and assistance and as a manager remained unobtrusive but was there when you needed him. My son in particular developed a real soft spot for Jim and loved some of the stories he told him. I also enjoyed some lovely conversations with him. We fell in love with the resident dogs and once again there was that added bonus of security with them being around in addition to being an extra bit of personality. The location is superb in that you walk straight out onto the beach and can walk across to Isla Cabuya on low tide. We absolutely loved our time at the Howler Monkey Hotel and could not recommend it highly enough.

Stayed two weeks here

  • 5 of 5

During my stay I was entertained by the howler monkeys that played over my head while reading my book in the hammock. The ocean view was incredible. What I really enjoyed was the fact that the hotel is off the main road and there is no noise of traffic and dust to deal with. The folks there were very friendly and it was great that it was close to the quaint saloon and fabulous bakery cafe. Make sure to induldge in the fish dishes, yum yum.

My room was very spacious and what I really liked was the great comfortable mattress on the bed. Great sleeping and the sound of the waves were a great help to relax and lull me to sleep.

The manager was very helpful and I would recommend this holiday property to family, couple or single person.

The pool was very refreshing and definitely appreciated on those hot days.

Thanks to the staff and owner of this hotel for the lovely holiday I had. Special thanks to the other guests whose company I enjoyed a lot.
