I have been visiting Montezuma, Costa Rica every year for more than a decade, and I have always enjoyed staying at Amor de Mar. The grounds and view are magnificent, the hotel is charming and comfortable, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Recently, Ori (the owner) has made some major improvements, and rooms now have air conditioning and...

I will start off by saying, this hotel and it's grounds are VERY beautiful. They have a nice open lobby area that you can sit at whenever you want. But, don't be confused this hotel is on the beach but not a swimming beach. The hotel is surrounded by large rocks, so if you want to swim or just sit...

Thank you for your response. We appreciate that you mentioned our beautiful grounds. In no way however, have we misrepresented the location of the hotel by making it out to be on a swimming beach. We are right on the ocean, and every picture on our website clearly shows the rocks out front and the tide pool. Swimming beaches are...

Montezuma Costa Rica is off the beaten path. That is not to say that there are not people who have taken this path just it is off the beaten patch. Nice small town with the usual pizza place, a few bars, a few restaurants, and the market. And of course the usual T-shirt / dress shop. Hotel Amor de Mar...

It’s hard to put into words what a magical experience Amor De Mar creates for all its guests. Amor de Mar is everything you can ask for and more. Its surroundings have an enchanting allure. We had a chance to stay in the "Casa Sol Beach House". The house is located overlooking a lush green lawn overflowing with palm trees...

Traveled to Montezuma on a Chemistry trip with classmates. Our stay at the Hotel Amor de Mar was wonderful! We stayed in Casa Luna beach house and occupied 3 hotel rooms as well. The rooms were unique, offered great views, and were very well kept. I occasionally found lizards in the beach house, but this was expected since we kept...

Located directly in front of the ocean, this hotel is by far the best we've stayed in Costa Rica. EVERYTHING is very well kept and clean. We loved our house ( LUNA ) and the amazing location * 5 min walk from downtown, grocery store, local beaches etc * Do not hesitate to book this place !! Yannick

We were honeymooning in Montezuma for the majority of our trip and had a private beach front paradise when we stayed in the Casa de Sol. This structure is utterly AMAZING - circular, open air, made of old style wood, porches galore with hammocks, breathtaking views, privacy, and fine touches to decor made for a cozy environment. You could hear...

I would like to mention here that before this review was posted, this guest already had written to us with her complaints requesting a full refund which we denied. They stayed here for three nights without mentioning any of the above . We asked frequently if everything was alright, to which the response was positive. It is puzzling that anyone...
