We stayed in the Casa Luna from March 10-12. The house was clean and spacious, but poorly lit at night. The views from the upstairs were beautiful! One word of caution-the bottom step on the inside stairs tends to blend in with the floor-I missed the step going down one evening and nearly fell, and our oldest daughter missed the step one evening, fell, and split open her chin. Also, use the mosquito netting at night-our oldest daughter got quite a few bites the one night because we didn't use the netting.

We loved relaxing in the hammocks and watching the surf. It felt like a small piece of paradise!

One major drawback is that the property is situated right next to the road. We heard many ATV's roaring past.

We ate the buffet breakfast on Sunday, and although it was good, we felt it was overpriced.

It's a 5-10 minute walk to town, but Lucy's, a good restaurant, is next door.

Even though there were some major drawbacks-daughter falling, noisy at times...we loved it!

we stayed int he "casa luna" (4bedroom apt) over xmas - Great place thats only a few miuntes walk outside Montezuma central. Huge grassy knoll, with hammocks for hours and hours of reading and relaxing - There is also a waterfall behind the hotel (3 min walk). great place - I will be back at Amor de Mar on the next trip to Costa rica.

We stayed at Amor de Mar in Montezuma for our honeymoon and loved every minute of being there...we only stayed 2 days and wanted to stay longer. We reserved the #6 room, which is on the corner of the 2nd floor and has a queen sized bed. The windows are all screen windows and look out over the ocean and the room was very simple but spacious. It's at the very edge of the town, across from the entrance to the trail to the town's waterfall (it's a nice waterfall with a hole you could swim in and by chance we saw holler and capuchin monkeys, as well as iguanas). There are plenty of places to lay or sit out on the lawn...wooden chairs, several big hammocks, or rocks by the tide pool. The food is simple and fresh and the homemade bread is great. Plus the patio where the dining area is set up offers a WONDERFUL view. I would recommend booking a 2nd floor room for a better view, specifically #6. It's the most expensive room I think, but overall the hotel is very reasonable for the view it offers. **The staff was very friendly, but travelers should be aware that there really wasn't a front desk after 4 or 5, just a security guy.

This hotel is great, especially if you stick to the second floor. Not only does it have a beautiful balcony overlooking the ocean, but it has plenty of comfortable wood chairs. More importantly, the rooms on the first floor open onto the open air dining area, making for very noisy rude awakenings in the morning. Not only that, but the first floor has a painted concrete floor rather than the beautiful wood floors on the second. Thirdly, the first floor has the small, oranged legged crabs common around the area, trying to climb in at night and suceeding!

We stayed on the first floor the first night in montezuma, before moving to the second floor's beautiful room 6 for the following three. The breakfast is indeed good. the lawn and hammocks, are wonderful, and the tidepools are fun for relaxing and exploring small marine life. I'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed 2 nights at Amor de Mar.
We have stayed at over 20 places in C.R. over the years and never had a problem with safety, as long as we kept our car in the hotel's lot.

When we got to Amor de Mar, no one was at the reception desk and to this day we still don't know who runs the place. It turns out the restaurant is not open for dinner.

All Day and all night, these very noisy ATV's speed up and down the street, keep you awake and drown out the ocean. The people who rent them out probably buy their gas from guys who steal it from unsuspecting vistors like us.

When we got up at 4 AM to take the 6:30 ferry to
get out of this awful town, we noticed halfway to the next village that our truck had been siphoned.

There is no gas station in Montezuma. We turned back to go to Amor de Mar for help and the young man cleaning the place went to get the security guard who soon appeared with a pillow under his arm. He had obviously been asleep. After our insisting, he found gas in the shed and gave us enough to get to the next town where we waited for the gas station to open.

We just made it on time.

The hotel is right on the main drag and it is very noisy indeed. Get a room at the back of the building if you can.
