Traveled to Montezuma on a Chemistry trip with classmates. Our stay at the Hotel Amor de Mar was wonderful! We stayed in Casa Luna beach house and occupied 3 hotel rooms as well. The rooms were unique, offered great views, and were very well kept. I occasionally found lizards in the beach house, but this was expected since we kept the windows open all day. The hotel staff was very friendly and hospitable, even taking the time to join me for breakfast. Speaking of which, the food was delicious (try the crepes and honey). Since I was traveling between the bars/restaurants and hotel at night, it was nice to have the security guard manning the hotel entrance upon our return. He would even keep our keys at the desk so we didn't lose them while dancing the night away in town.
The location of the hotel is a sight to be seen! Amor de Mar is right on the coast, just a short walk to breathtaking waterfalls, and a 5-10 minute walk to Montezuma for food, shopping, and nightlife (I highly recommend reggae night at the local bars). Also, as most of the reviews say, there are hammocks galore on the property! Great for an afternoon snooze or reading a book. Unlike other places I stayed in Costa Rica, I felt completely safe at this hotel - day and night.
Only word of caution: At the waterfalls, keep an eye on your personal belongings especially if you're swimming.
Favorite thing about Amor de Mar: The work of local artists is displayed throughout the hotel! From your room keys, to the restaurant menus... it adds a nice touch.
