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...

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

We stayed at the Monterey del Mar for two nights as part of an OAT Costa Rica tour. First, let me say that the facilities and setting are beautiful -- our room was in a free-standing bungalow, beautiful pool, nice restaurant, and a beautifully landscaped oceanfront property. However, there were also some deficiencies -- the food was good, but not... More

This is the second time we've stayed here. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Our ocean view bungalow featured a king bed, satellite TV, and A/C. The restaurant is very good, and a full breakfast is now included in the room rate. Close to Jaco for shopping and more dining options and Los Sueños Marriott for golf. In the other... More
