“We loved this place so much!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2008

We spent 4 idyllic days at the Amor de Mar hotel in the Casa Luna house, and wished we could stay longer.
This house is large, clean and roomy with 3 bedrooms downstairs and one HUGE bedroom with a big covered deck upstairs. The bathroom is cool, being an indoor bathroom with a shower that is partially outdoors. This is a quiet place, certainly not a place to go if you plan on partying. We were on a family vacation, so it was perfect for us. Breakfast on the outdoor patio was delicious with home made breads, jams and fruit. Also Eggs, fish etc. all with the accompianment of a terrific guitar player. The tide pool was tons of fun for my 7 year old to swim in, and we certainly did not miss having a pool. I would love to come back and stay here again, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing place to swing in a hammock under the palms on the gorgeous grounds!

My two college aged kids and I stayed here a couple of nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The staff are all vey helpful and assisted me with booking a massage on the lawn with Anna Laura, a very good masseuse. Breakfasts were delicious on the idylic veranda. Room was kinda small and basic but you won't want to be in your room too much anyhow, as beautiful as the surroundings are, and the rates are very reasonable.

Just returned from Amor de Mar, and enjoyed my stay immensely. The grounds are beautiful, and the hammocks are just the perfect way to relax. There is a small tide pool right off the hotel grounds that's a great way to cool off. The rooms are simple, and rustic-similar to sleepaway camp, but hopefully you won't be in there too often. The hotel is not in the center of town, but about a 7-min. walk (either on the beach or street). It's right across from the waterfalls. Highly recommend it!

Montezuma was a very quant town with a relaxed tempo!

The houses we rented were SO Unique and comfortable with increadible views/sounds of the ocean. The kids and adults loved the hammocks, for very different purposes but all enjoyed!

The tidepools within 20 feet of the proprety were great fun. Go through town towards the Llang Llang for playing in the warm ocean water as the beaches are very nice up that way.

The hotel resteraunt served breakfast and lunch and was very good. Carla was the best of Hostesses!

The moon light horse back ride to the waterfalls was AWESOME! If you like riding horses (I use to own/compete horses) I can tell you this is your BEST opportunity for a great ride, view etc. etc.

We also enjoyed boating to the island for snorkling, it was very touristy but we still had a great time.

  • Liked — Unique Casas' located on the Ocean!
  • Disliked — A scorpion in our bed.

Everything about this place is AMAZING! The setting is gorgeous: there's a green sloping lawn that meets the ocean, jungle and waterfalls across the street, natural tidepools to explore and take a dip in, and hammocks galore to relax in just to mention a few. It's also just about a 5 minute walk to town, so close enough to get there easily on foot but far enough away to avoid the noise of Montezuma's main strip.

The actual building is quite unique with handcrafted dark wood throughout, an open air feeling, spacious and clean rooms, and extremely friendly staff. We stayed in room #5 and it was everything we were looking for and as a bonus had a beautiful private balcony overlooking the ocean. Our friends stayed in the Casa Luna and it was by far the most amazing house I'd ever stepped foot in. Spectacular accomodations!

Breakfast was delicious (not included in price) as well. I'd recommend the banana pancakes and the watermelon juice! All in all, I can't think of one thing that went wrong while we stayed here. It was the perfect beginning to our first visit to Costa Rica and I can guarantee that we'll be staying at Amor De Mar in the future. If you're looking for a spectacular place to stay in Montezuma be sure to check this place out.

  • Liked — The beautiful setting, access to jungle & waterfalls, close to town, breakfast, unique rooms

Overall: We really enjoyed our stay at Amor de Mar and in Montezuma. So much so that we regretted going to Mal Pais (which severely lacked in convenience, access, and activities compared to Montezuma - the sunsets were nice though). If we were to go back we would stay in Amore de Mar and also try out the Ylang Ylang resort.

Property: The property has a beautiful green lawn, nice wood building, and an awesome reef with little safe tidal pools that you can take a dip in. It is located within walking distance to the town which was nice as we wanted to stay away from the noise. It surpassed my expectations.

Room: Very clean and had a easy to use safe. Plenty of room and was quiet on the ocean side of the building, We had a nice private deck/veranda which was a great place to have a drink as the sun went down (behind us, but still nice), We had a refrigerator in the room which was nice as well.

Food: They offer ala carte breakfast which was really good. Homemade bread and jams. Probably the best option in terms of quality and cost.

Service: Management was very helpful with setting up transfers and getting in contact with our next destination. They definitely went above and beyond which was very much appreciated.

Negatives: As a conservation type, it did seem like they watered the lawn all day. Not that that is really a negative, more a pet peave.

the locations of this lovely hotel is perfect- a 5 minute walk from Montezuma's city center- you are away from all the noise yet near by if you would like going out at night for dinner and drinks. We had to extend our stay in Montezuma because we were having such a great time!!
The hotel is located right on the ocean front, Only breakfast is served downstairs but it's homemade and tasty (ocean view is served with your breakfast too). The owner, Ori, is originally from Germany but lived int he States and speaks English well. Ori and the staff were very friendly and helpful! The rooms are clean and spacious. The location of the hotel and the ocean view are the real treat though!
Check out the hotel: [--]
