I loved the Hotel Amor de Mar, but the friend I traveled with was taken aback to see that only a curtain (rather than a door) separated the bathroom from our sleeping area. This, however, was the only downside. The beds were comfortable, we had a nice balcony that looked over the sea, and we found the rusticity of the... More

We decided to stay at this place after the rave reviews on Tripadvisor, and were not disappointed. It was beautiful! It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the center of the town and across the street from the waterfall. The grounds are really stunning, with a breathtaking view of the water. The cafe serves great breakfast (not included however), but... More

What a great find! We pulled into Montezuma for a four-night stay without a reservation and happened upon this place looking for somewhere just a bit out of town (to avoid any late-night noise etc...) We had a couple different room options and chose a smallish room with private bath and AC. What a treat! Friendly staff, clean rooms and... More

If you are looking to feel like you are miles away from the real world... this is your place. If your idea of paradise is an ocean front hotel with beautiful gardens and an accomodating staff... this is your place. If lounging in a hammock and watching the sunset with your sweetheart sounds like heaven... this is your place! We... More

This is a weird review. We had an amazing time at this hotel, but it was because of our own doing and not the staff..Owner lives in San Jose, should take more care of her hotel. Blonde receptionist was cold, and threw us in our room and didn't tell us anything. Figure it out was the vibe. I tipped every... More

Nothing fancy, but the beds were comfortable. You will want a room with a/c, it gets quite hot here! I loved this place. It had character and charm and felt homey. Prime location just across the road from the Montezuma Waterfall. Just down the (big) hill from the Montezuma Butterfly Gardens, a must-see). Bus to Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve goes... More

We cruised into town, saw this place and cancelled our reservation at another hotel. Amor De Mar was exactly what we were looking for. It had a small, inn feel and was right on the ocean. The rooms were comfortable...breakfast was the best in town...friendly staff...great tidal pools to swim in...hammocks to lounge in...funky art...pretty landscaping and plants... resident doggies...close...

I had a really hard time deciding where to stay in Montezuma. I am very glad we ended up at Amor de Mar for several reasons - the first being it's stunning waterfront, landscaped backyard with lots of hammocks, chairs, and an awesome natural tide pool between the rocks to swim in. My husband and I love natural pools, so... More

The romantic setting and view from this hotel are exceptional. The hotel is not plush; however, the grounds are exceptional. The rooms are airconditioned, clean and comfortable. A must stay if you are going to Montezuma.
