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.

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... More

I went to Costa Rica last month with my boyfriend for a nice getaway and fell in love with the Monterey Del Mar Hotel. I honestly did not expect the hotel to be as nice and convenient as it was. I love that it is on a private beach, it makes it so private and romantic! The view in our... More

The Monterey Del Mar is an exceptional resort for those who are looking for a quiet place to stay, out of the way of the hussle-and-bussle of other places like Jaco and Manuel Antonio. The drive from San Jose International to the resort is a little over 2 ½ hours through the mountainous region of Costa Rica with some breathtaking... More
