I know a lot of people find things to complain about. This quite earthy hotel served its purpose for us, a young couple traveling around CR and looking for good value and nice hotel views. This hotel is right on the water, hammocks for relaxing, nice ambiance. Unfortunately, as many others have mentioned breakfast isn't included (i think we got... More

Had a very disappointing stay here. Our "ocean view" room overlooked a public patio, with the ocean across a huge lawn. Not much ocean that we could see. And it was next to the open air dining patio, so the meal prep noise started at 6 am, and the meal noise, for breakfast and lunch, was substantial. We were miserable,... More

The Amor De Mar is good value, with a beautiful garden and a fun atmosphere. Were were in an upstairs room facing the street on the first night. This wasn't great, there was a fabric curtain (which one tried not to touch) to the bathroom, which in turn smelt like pee. To be fair we mentioned this to the girls... More

I'm a multiple-return visitor to Amor de Mar. Here's why: This fantastic ocean-front property has an amazing hammock-filled garden that makes me never want to leave the hotel. The staff are a fabulous blend of friendly, helpful and efficient. And the breakfasts in the restaurant are consistently fresh and tasty. There's a variety of rooms for different budgets. Our favourite... More

If we were to paint a picture of what a tropical paradise would look like, we would paint Amor de Mar! The green lawn stretches from the dining patio to the lava rock boundary of the sea. Guests are invited to laze about in their choice of hammocks and reclining chairs. A complete breakfast menu and plenty of hot coffee... More

It's a wonderful location, the place is very cute, very clean, very professional. We read about the upstairs rooms with the balconies, but of course so did everyone else, so they were already booked way in advance. We settled on room #8 instead, a nice big downstairs room with A/C. Beautiful and all but... Something about the walls and floors... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of our trip through Costa Rica. Out of all the hotels we stayed in this was for sure the most rustic. No air conditioning in the room so it was hot at night which made it hard to fall asleep. The windows were only screens which made it noisy. It was nice... More

This year we chose Costa Rica as our winter location. Please read our forthcoming reviews from small B and B s to 5 star resorts.... This hotel has exceeded any expectation. It is perfect. Perfect. It has fitted our tastes like a glove. We only spent 60 a night, but still have dreams about the details of this excellent location.... More

This was our second stay at Amor de Mar. We adore the location, ocean views, and the relaxing atmosphere, 5 minutes from busy town. The hotel is charming, the rooms rustic and comfortable. The only complaint we had was the outdoor hammocks and lounge chairs by the ocean could stand to be replaced (moldy and stained) and the termites had... More

I stayed for three nights with friends and family in the two beach houses. They are so incredible nice and we all had an unforgettable time there. You can see how much love people put into the rooms and every single detail. The quality of service depended on the person that was there, but all in all helpful and friendly.... More
