The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and quiet with excellent showers and AC. Close enough to Chico's to grab a beer and walk back to the private outdoor patio. Next to the grocery store for daily essentials and drinks, and plenty...More

      I loved Sano Banano! The staff made us feel like old friends and the atmosphere embodies everything that I love about Costa Rica, Montezuma in particular. The vibe is eco-conscious, peaceful, fun, and kind. The restaurant avoids plastic (which is choking our oceans), including useless...More

      A buzzy, roadside bar with fabulous lemonades, Kombuchas and beer. Great staff (thanks Luis for all the good advice) and good food. A hotel too, with fine rooms at reasonable prices. Very easy to spend hours here watching the thirsty pass by. A happy place.More

      Loved our experience at Sano Bano! Great location in the heart of downtown Montezuma. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The “included breakfast” was above and beyond what we were expecting. Definitely planning on coming back.More

      They offered an excellent rate for low season. Guests get access to the awesome Ylang Ylang pool at their sister hotel which is a luxury hotel right on the beach. The pool access alone makes it worth it. WiFi was inconsistent but other than that...More

      Stayed here 3 nights. I'll start right with the biggest con as this may make people think twice. The double bed wasn't full length, with a single pillow my feet hung off the end of the bed (I'm 5'10" - not exactly an NBA player)....More

      The rooms were clean. The stay included breakfast. The air conditioning in the room worked great. The shower was clean and hot. The wifi worked as advised. For the $25/night (off season), I'd be tempted to stay here for a couple weeks If I had...More

    review rating 5  I loved Sano Banano! The staff made us feel like old friends and the atmosphere embodies everything that I love about Costa Rica, Montezuma in particular. The vibe is eco-conscious, peaceful, fun, and kind. The restaurant avoids plastic (which is choking our oceans), including useless plastic straws, and reminds guests to do the same. You can tell the owners care for their town and the surrounding wildlife. The courtyard is relaxing and is visited by blue birds. The rooms are clean and comfy. The food was fantastic. 5 stars to Sano Banano!

    review rating 5  Great place right by the beach. Small rooms but with A/C for decent pricing. Nice patio to hang out on, and the "off site pool" was a great little pool at their sister resort (about a 10 minute walk down the beach to get there). Friendly, helpful staff. Totally recommend staying here!
