“A beautiful getaway”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

We stayed here for three nights and it was a wonderful experience. The grounds are so peaceful and beautiful....spent hours reading on the lawn and enjoying the view. Breakfast was so delicious and fresh that we ate there every morning! Don't miss the fresh baked bread and homemade jam, and of course the fresh squeezed juice.
Overall an unbeatable value and terrific experience....we will definitely be returning with friends next time and staying in one of the houses!

My husband and I stayed at Amor de Mar for just one night at the end of our vacation in Montezuma. We were looking for a comfortable place with hot water, and it did deliver nicely on those fronts.

Plusses: The property is beautiful, with a groomed lawn with hammocks and chairs overlooking the ocean. The building appears well maintained and there is a lot of attention to detail and lovely natural wood everywhere.
The setting is away from the center of town, so you will not be bothered by late night revelry. The owner and staff (including security guard and guard dog Sunshine) we met were very friendly and helpful. We had assistance with booking the next night in San Jose and with seeing other parts of the property for a possible return to a cabina (they are beautiful).
Breakfast was a nice meal (although not included in price).
Room was nice, clean, with comfortable bed and pretty tiled bathroom.
The rooms upstairs would be my first choice - great views, more private, and less expensive if you share a bathroom. If you travel as a family, check out the cabina with a full kitchen.

Minuses: If you stay in a room facing the road, it will be somewhat noisy with trucks and motorcycles driving by.
Someone opened the door to our room at 6:30am while we were sleeping and then slammed the door. We have no idea who it was (we had not locked the door when we went to bed.)
We were on the ground floor, and people walking above us were very loud due to the wood construction (started at 7am and continued all morning).

All in all, a positive experience and we would return, hopefully booking in advance next time. Compared to other places we saw and stayed in Montezuma, Amor de Mar has a more mature guest following - it is definitely not a place to take the party home, and most people we saw there were over 45-50.

This place has a wonderful setting with great views, hammocks, a nice lawn, crashing waves - and AC. Get room 5 if you can. The breakfasts are excellent. Bathrooms clean and the beds comfortable. It isn't the cheapest there, but worth it.

Room Tip: Room 5 is the best room, unless you get the separate house.

We were very happy with our stay at Amor de Mar. The location is absolutely beautiful and the owners and staff are so warm you would think you were part of their family. The hotel is a slightly south of town (10 minute walk) which may deter parties, but we prefered it since it was quiet enough that you can sleep with the windows open and hear nothing but the ocean waves. There is a picturesque restaurant, but do note that breakfast is not included.

The hotel exceeded our expectations

My wife and I have been here for a week and are here for five more days. We are truly loving it, having spent most of our time on hammocks in the garden with occassional breaks to swim in the river, play in the surf here or walking to a nearby beach.

The rooms are good as is the service and the breakfasts. The distance from town is ideal for walking, easy enough for a walk in for lunch or dinner or to the beach. Fully recommended.
