    Good location and great staff.

    Very friendly and helpful front staff. Great location walking within town and to the beach. Beautiful back garden to sit and have meals. Good place to stay if you want to be centrally located. Great surprise you could even go to their sister hotel and use the pool!! :). (Iguana walked through garden)

    Great location, super friendly staff, nice room and shower, great restaurant (although service can be a bit deficient and slow, but...pura vida haha). We had a great time during our stay at el sano banano. Recommended

    This was, I think, my fourth stay here. Discovered it by accident when I ran out of time to get to my next destination and have stayed here every time I'm in Costa Rica. Love the town and love this facility

    Nice quiet room but no windows. Locks only work with a key from the inside could be dangerous.

    Great location in cute beach town.

    Hotel location good, but rooms were dark and windows did not open. Service in the restaurant was very friendly but slow. Food was good. Overall Montezuma is nice beach town.

    Comfortable room, delicious food, friendly service

    I loved El Sano Banano. I was in Montezuma for a night before heading to a yoga retreat just outside of town. The room was comfortable and the service was amazing. I checked out and they watched my bag until it was time for me to go to the retreat. The food was very health conscious and delicious. The smoothies are to die for. Definitely get the green passion. And there is some kind of a cocoa coffee bliss... Get it. Trust me. I ate in the restaurant several times during my stay and heartily recommend the Patacon sandwich and the Tipico breakfast. Oh... and don't forget the artisan chocolates. Seriously, everything at El Sano Banano is heavenly.
