Amor De Mar Hotel in Montezuma, Costa Rica was a delightful place. The Bay in front and the verdant grass between the hotel and the water with its hammocks and beautiful views of the Ocean. It is more like a cozy little Inn rather than a hotel, where children were welcome and adults were comfortable sitting on the veranda or...

We stayed here three nights and absolutely loved it. It was so beautiful - you could walk our of your room and be right on the ocean, pick any hammock you liked and watch the waves - it was hard to leave. Breakfasts were good and served in the most gorgeous setting. The hotel is filled with beautiful wood, flowers...

We stayed here for 2 nights, and LOVED it. The location was great (a short walk into town, and right across the street from the Montezuma Falls trailhead). We had room #5, which had a fantastic view of the ocean. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, the food (breakfast) was absolutely delicious, the rooms were great, and the...

The best spot in Montezuma, just on the outskirts of the small town making it nice and quiet at the late night. Amor de Mar has a magnificent natural laguna by the sea, perfect for early morning or evening dips. Breakfast is great and will advice you to taste the great fruit juices. Only 20 minutes from the hotel you...

I travelled to Montezuma two years ago and remember walking by this property and checking it out and I was amazed by the peacefulness of it. A large lawn with chairs hammocks and benches right on the ocean. Quiet and Peaceful and just a short walking distance to town. This trip I stayed there for a week and couldn't have...

We did not stay in the hotel, but we came here for breakfast/brunch almost every day. The patio is covered and looks out across a long lawn to the waves crashing on the rocks. It is very peaceful--especially compared to most other places in Montezuma which are close to the ATV noise/exhaust and dust from the road. The breakfast was...

If we go back to Montezuma there isn't anywhere else we would stay! The rooms are basic, as many places in Montezuma are. But it is very clean and we absolutely loved all of the staff! We ate breakfast there each morning and each day SO good! It is a quick walk to beaches and town, and a great location....

Beautiful place to stay in Montezuma.. The rooms are clean and the location is amazing. The grounds are beautiful green grass going right up to the ocean with tidal pools and great shell collecting. The only downside is that breakfast is not included, but the restaurant has a great view and the food is good. They only serve breakfast. It's...

We had the great pleasure of staying in room #5. It was spacious, had an incredible view, it's own veranda of sorts, and AC. Room #6 seemed almost as appealing, but several of the rooms seemed more oriented towards back packers (cheap room and board). These rooms were nothing more two beds crammed into a box, with no AC, bathroom...

Thank you so much for your beautiful review for room #5. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I wanted to take this opportunity to announce that after October we will no longer have room #1 and #2 that are currently sharing a bathroom. We will have a new larger room very similar to #5, with its own...

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.
