I believe Monterey Del Mar is the essence of Costa Rica. The stunning views of the ocean from your room and the wonderful restaurant is what you come to Costa Rica for. I will return over and over for the peace and quiet along with the "family feel" of Monterey Del Mar. The staff is superb and every thing you ask for they will do there best to accomodate. Jonathan, the hotel manager is extremely professional and courtous as well as his assistent Warren. Great hotel for the price and location.
