Travelers who prefer to stay close to town will enjoy their stay at Hotel El Jardin. It is just steps from shopping, dining and entertainment in one direction and from a gorgeous beach in the other direction.

Overview

Pool at Hotel El Jardin
Pool at Hotel El Jardín

Situated on a gorgeous hill near the town of Montezuma and offering partial views of the sea is Hotel El Jardin. The entire property is surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens that are perfect for relaxing to the sights and sounds of the Costa Rican wildlife. The area is popular among birds, lizards and monkeys. Guests can grab a drink, their favorite magazine and a hammock and spend as much time as they'd like enjoying the garden.

The hotel's pool is particularly popular among guests. The lower level is the largest pool and provides plenty of space to swim laps or splash around with friends and family. Visitors can also climb a small flight of stairs to reach the second level, which houses a smaller pool and spa for relaxing in the water while basking in the sun. A picturesque waterfall connects the two. Nearby lounge chairs and covered picnic tables are great for napping, having lunch or simply getting to know other guests.

For guests who prefer a more natural setting for swimming, Hotel El Jardin is 75 meters from some of the most gorgeous beaches in the area. Warm sand, gentle waves and the smell of salt in the air are the backdrops for swimming, surfing, snorkeling and much more.

Although the hotel itself does not offer a restaurant, it is just a few steps from a wide variety of options. Both casual and fine dining options are available, and people who prefer to prepare their own breakfasts, lunches and snacks can shop at the local supermarkets. Of course, almost nobody makes it into town without checking out some of the other local shops and boutiques.

Hotel El Jardin's front desk staff is always ready to help a guest. Staff members can assist with directions to local attractions, answer questions for guests and assist with renting cars or booking tours and purchasing tickets. Daily housekeeping, a front desk safe and complimentary wireless internet are also available.

Activities

Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve - Located on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve is one of the most scenic areas in Costa Rica. It became the country's first conservation area in 1963 and today, it is home to many seabirds and more than 150 species of trees. Brown pelicans, ospreys and many other birds make their homes among the lance wood, hog plum and spiny cedar trees. The area is home to many trails that visitors can hike five days per week. The easiest, Danes Trail, is a 1.5-kilometer loop, but the most popular one is the Sueco Trail, which takes about four hours to complete. Guests can also check out Playa Cabo Blanco, a white-sand beach full of gorgeous rocky cliffs.

Tortuga Island - Famous for its Caribbean-like beach, Tortuga Island is a haven for people who love the water. A 45-minute trip on a speedboat is the start of the tour each day and sometimes results in seeing dolphins or whales. Once guests reach the island, they can snorkel in the gorgeous turquoise water, sunbathe on the white-sand beaches, swim and much more. The tour directors often serve a barbecue lunch as well. Other recreation options include kayaking, hiking up the mountain or exploring the huge tented gift shops.

Curu National Wildlife Refuge - A favorite among animal lovers and eco-tourists, the privately owned Curu National Wildlife Refuge houses more than 230 different bird species that range from brightly colored parrots or majestic hawks. A variety of mammals also call the refuge home, including pumas, coyote and anteaters. Although visitors to the refuge are mostly school groups and researchers, tourists are also welcome to visit.

"Wonderful, great staff, inexpensive without being cheap, and totally relaxing. Nice rooms with air conditioning and a CLEAN pool for under $20/night. Nothing but good things to say about this place. My group of 10 tried 2 other hotels during the week and moved out because they were so bad/lied. Thanks again to the El Jardin staff. "
