Spent two amazing weeks in hotel Amor de Mar. It is absolutely lovely in every regard. The rooms are charming, the breakfast is super delicious, the garden just beautiful. It's a short walk outside of the busy Montezuma center, so it is calm and relaxing, like a 'retreat'. The owners and the staff are so amiable... I felt like living in a cosy family house. There is another nice hotel in town called 'Ylang Ylang'. I spent some time in Ylang Ylang at night to have delicious dinners - but didn't regret having chosen Amor de Mar as my hotel. Because while Ylang Ylang has a very beautiful setting too, I felt that Ylang Ylang was more like an anonymous 'luxury resort'. I love that Amor de Mar is so personal.
Amor de Mar has rooms of different categories. I stayed in room #3 which has a view on the street - and still is absolutely quiet. I have seen room #5 too - it's a bit more expensive than room #3, but I think it is the most beautiful; it is large with 2 queen-sized beds, has a stunning ocean view, a personal veranda to sit outside, a refrigerator etc.
There are also two houses part of the Amor de Mar estate. They are stunning!!
If you go to Montezuma, don't miss out eating at my favourite restaurant here, 'Las Artistas'. It's very close to Amor de Mar and has the best food and atmosphere... candlelight at the beach :-)
