From the moment we walked into the outdoor lobby of Amor de Dios, with its breathtaking view of the ocean and the soothing sound of the river rushing by, we were smitten. The owner and her staff were nothing but friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. Our simple but attractive wood-paneled room with its own balcony was the... More

This hotel is not worth $95/day. It might be if breakfast were included, but it is not. Breakfasts ran $16-$20 each morning for two. The owner, one morning, even asked me how many cups of coffee I had had. Coffee is self-service here and I refilled my cup once so my response was "2 cups." She charged me an extra... More

Amor de Mar was in a wonderful location with an immaculate lawn and awesome hammocks to soak up the evening air and view. We stayed in room # 2. It was very small, just enough space to stand our backpacks up and sleep. We shared a bathroom and did not have air conditioner. However, with the windows open and then... More

Spent two amazing weeks in hotel Amor de Mar. It is absolutely lovely in every regard. The rooms are charming, the breakfast is super delicious, the garden just beautiful. It's a short walk outside of the busy Montezuma center, so it is calm and relaxing, like a 'retreat'. The owners and the staff are so amiable... I felt like living... More

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
