We came to costa rica for a 2 week get-away, and as we were visiting so many places, a booking error was bound to happen... we arrived at Hotel Amor de Mar a day before our reservation and all of their rooms were booked! I seriously thought I was in a nightmare! Luckily the owners were incredibly hospitable, and offered us the huge 12 person house at a discount. After accepting the offer and bringing our stuff in, we get a knock at the door. Another couple had asked to extend their stay and the owners wanted to know if we would be ok sharing the house and splitting the cost. We were game! The house was two stories, 5 or 6 bedrooms, and included a kitchen, eating area, and private open air shower / bathroom combo. There was more than enough room for 2 more adults to take the downstairs.
Words cannot do this place justice. I felt like we were in the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse!! The master bedroom had a wrap around deck, an entire wall of open air windows looking out on the glistening blue water, tons of sitting area - for the cost of one of the standard rooms, we were living like kings! Granted, the standard rooms looked quite a bit smaller, and the lack of air conditioning made sleeping a bit uncomfortable, but the quiet location, and physical beauty more than made up for that!
I had not heard a lot about Montezuma before going, and I only wish we had gotten to stay longer! There was so much to do, and was one of the most beautiful places in Costa Rica we went (and we have just about been everywhere!)
