After visiting several of the hotels available in Montezuma, my posse and I settled into Amor de Mar. Since there were no regular rooms available at the hotel, we ended up staying in the tree house, which was completely spontaneous and an excellent surprise. Most of my review is based on Amor de Mar exceeding my expectations on several occasions.
The customer service was incredible. Upon arrival, the front desk was quick to do everything they could to get us to stay – not with a sales pitch, but with making every effort to accommodate the weary travelers that we were. Once guests, they always were quick and enthusiastic to help.
The tree house was spacious and close to the beach. The house had two levels holding a total of four beds, a kitchen and a shower that was open up at the roof line. The second level could also be opened up completely to the shoreline and offered great views of the ocean. It was great just hanging around up there.
24 hour security. I would describe Montezuma as somewhat of a gypsy town. Inside the town there were quite a few people that I would call wanderers. In any case, it was nice to have security walking around all night, just in case. Also, the house dog didn’t take b.s. from any one. He was tough as hell - missing an eye and ate nails for breakfast. It was very nice to have him our side.
You have to pay for breakfast. I typically just like to have a few things to pick up for free as I run out the door, but you don’t get that here. You have to sit down and pay for a meal. Its average price but good and there is the same view of the ocean. And free refills on coffee.
There are only a few parking spots out front for your car. We didn’t have a problem getting one every night, but I noticed a few people had to park on the dimly lit street.
Overall, this place was fantastic and I would not hesitate to book them again.
