“romantic get away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Beautiful rustic hotel with gorgeous lawn overlooking the ocean. loved staying here just relaxing in the lawn chairs while working remotely on my laptop. located just outside of town and across from the water falls (cascada). enjoyed the restaurant and the yoga classes up the road. gorgeous hardwood floors and paneling. The ocean view rooms were booked but we will get one next time. take a romantic break and relax for a day or two.

Room Tip: get ocean view if you can

This hotel is beautifully landscaped! Absolutely gorgeous! The only thing we regret is that we couldn't get a room with a mini-fridge/kitchen area. It was right across from the waterfalls entrance and there were great beaches within walking distance that were less crowded. Great romantic spot!

This is a beautiful small hotel right on the pacific coast. Our room overlooked the ocean and had its own balcony, where we sat and had a glass of wine while our 9 month old slept. It was a perfect little oasis and very quiet. During the afternoon, we were invited to use the small grounds which are littered with hammocks and recliners where we relaxed and listened to the crashing waves. there is a little tide pool, also on the property. and a fresh water shower to have a rinse in afterward. The walk to the main strip is about 10 minutes and the beach is quite nice, except quite wavy, good for surfers... too scary for me to go in. There is a smaller rocky beach closer by and we managed to take a dip in there. Nothing beats swimming in the grandiose ocean and being lulled by the waves. We had the breakfast there, all homemade, the quinoa was really good, but I had the bread and cheese which wasn't to my taste. In any case, quite a lovely, clean, inviting location

Room Tip: Make sure to choose a room with a balcony ... makes all the difference.

Hotel Amor de Mar is very beautifully situated overlooking the ocean. The hotel is clean and the the service good.
The rooms differ in size and you hear every sound in the other rooms...
Our room was very hot - the a/c did not work properly and the fan made too much noise.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the bigger rooms if you are a family. We stayed in the number 3 and it was too sma...

Hotel Amor de Mar in Montezuma, was one of the most pleasant places we stayed during our four week road trip in Cost Rica. We stayed in ten different places of similarly priced establishments averaging about $ 100 per night per room. Hotel Amor de Mar ranked 3rd both in terms of price and quality. It is perfectly situated, impeccably maintained, and I can recommend it with only one caveat. Most of the establishments in CR quote room rates with breakfast and tax included. Amor de Mar does not. It is not easy therefore to compare rates, and may come as a surprise if one doesn’t ask in advance. One other policy of Hotel de Mar that we found unusual is that when making a reservation, even for the same day, one is charged the full amount, which is, evidently, non-refundable. Neither of these issues, while unusual for Costa Rica, were deal breakers for us. But none of the other establishments we stayed at charged in advance or quoted rates without tax and breakfast included.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have better views.

We booked based on other trip advisor comments. Love the location. Room 7 has a great ocean view and is right outside the small cafe that offers very nutritious and wholesome food...with minimal noise on a large cover porch. The ocean tide pool is an amazing natural feature. Sweet spot for R&R especially in January.

We stayed at the hotel over New Year's and had a relaxing, lovely time. We were in Room 5 which was upstairs with a balcony overlooking the back lawn & bay. This room was perfect for us as we spent lots of time in the adirondack chairs with wine that we got from the mercado and kept chilled in our room fridge. The food served for breakfast & lunch was fresh & delicious and I can't get the salsa from the huevos rancheros out of my mind. The staff, Ammi, Eugenia & Carla were all super friendly and helpful. This is simply a delightful place to kick back and unwind. It's right across the street from the entrance to Montezuma Falls and a short walk on the dirt road to the village of Montezuma.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a view and "private" balcony with a view of the water.
