Monterey del Mar is not a Hotel as much as it is a comfortable getaway. The bungalow we had was situated with a deck and lounges and looked directly over a beautiful garden with hummingbirds flitting in and out the the colorful flowers. The ocean was right behind the spacious lawn behind the garden. If you are looking for a... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Reserved the suite with ocean view which was perfect! Other rooms are surrounded by their beautiful grounds but don't have the view. We were greeted with a bottle of champagne for our anniversary which was nice and unexpected. Had a little trouble getting the safe to work, but the staff quickly resolved the issue. There... More

We took the public bus there and back, which was fine by us. The hotel is small scale development with bungalows and one complex with rooms that have balconies (however they are all only 1 storey or floor high) The location is well chosen. The beach is long, wide when at low tide, full of nature, but please beware of... More

As far as I know, I am not of royalty or celebrity, but the staff and accomodations at Monterey Del Mar left me feeling just that way. I was never in want of anything. The staff met my every need and want without question. The room was decorative, warm and felt like home. The view of the ocean was spectacular,... More

My husband and I came here with a group of 20 other students/customers of a real estate seminar group, and we stayed for 4 nights. The scenery of this beach front resort was breath taking. The staff was amazingly friendly and attentive. The food was mouth watering. We still dream about it after we left back to the states. The... More

Can't understand how this place could be #2. Definitely tops in the Playa Esterillos area! Gorgeous hotel and friendly staff. Much better deal than the local competition.

Myself, my husband and 2 sons, ages 9 & 11, had a very nice stay here in the Presidential Suite, which is a bungalow with a Master bedroom with bath, a 2nd bdrm, a 2nd bath, plus a living/dining room. (I would have liked a TV in the Living Room because the only TV was in the MBR, so my... More

I was in this hotel 15-24 of May, 2009. Plus: nice ocean front bungalow, fantastic long and very clean beach, friendly and polite staff. Minus: very poor and hangry breakfast (no choice, only one position and one juce). No transportation from this hotel to another place of interest. If you have a car - no problem. But I had a...
