We had read about Amor de Mar before taking the Ferry from our home in Playa Hermosa,Puntarenas in South Pacific coastal area but did not make a reservation.We arrived to find a magnificent rocky coast, like Maine Seacoast with warm water,fumes and all. Montezuma has a rich Tico-German-Swiss culture and the bread at Amor de Mar was heavenly- thick crusted,freshly...

We stayed in 7 different hotels on our 13 day trip through Costa Rica and this was our favorite. The staff and owner went out of their way to make us feel at home and accommodate us. They upgraded us to a room with a private porch. The room had an air conditioner and dehumidifier. After four days of swimming...

My husband and I stayed here for a week in June ( beginning of rainy season). The owners attention to detail in both customer care and the building and surroundings is evident throughout. You truly feel like you are staying at someone's house because you feel so comfortable and safe. We do not speak any Spanish so it was very...

My wife and I spent a few nights at Amor de Mar in May and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a perfect middle-of-the road accommodation in Montezuma- not the luxury and high prices of Ylang-Ylang, but not the gritty bare bones of the many hostels. The hotel is located on the main road along a rocky stretch of beach front...

Stayed in room #5 for a few nights of our honeymoon. Absolutely beautiful. The entire hotel is constructed of beautiful wood. Each morning fresh flowers were placed outside our room, and on the tables below where they serve breakfast. The breakfast was delicious. The grounds of the hotel are really beautiful, plenty of hammocks for relaxing, and great views of...

Room #5 is amazing! A little touch of luxury while you swing on the hammocks or enjoy the comfy chairs. Beautiful view and the hosts were sweet and helpful. Be sure to have the Sunday brunch. Many of the locals come on Sunday to join the brunch and they have the right idea. The hosts were quite to organize extras...

The hotel is on a gorgeous piece of land right on the ocean. The view from room #5 could not be beat. The back lawn looking onto the ocean is great for reading and relaxing. The tide pools were fun and a nice respite from the heat. Although the hotel is about a 5 minute walk to "downtown", it is...

I stayed here for 4 nights in April, and loved every second of it. My first trip to Costa Rica, my first hotel - single woman travelling solo, no car. Amor de Mar exceeded my expectations - the owner and staff are wonderful, friendly and make you feel at home; the hotel itself is gorgeous, beautiful wood porches, comfortable beds,...

We stayed here for two nights on our trip to Costa Rica. The hotel is just beautiful and the grounds are meticulously kept. We stayed in rooms 5 and 6. They were both beautiful. Room 5 did not have air conditioning, but it had screens all across the back of the room for great views. The hotel was right next...

This hotel was one of the better ones that we stayed during our 2 week trip around Costa Rica. Good job it was as it was also the most expensive! The rooms were lovely, clean and well kept.
