I travelled to Costa Rica in 2005 with 3 friends (couldn't select the correct date in this review...). This hotel was recommended by a Costa Rican who drove us from Tamarindo to Montezuma. This hotel was magic. Its situated right on the beach with a beautiful lawn sprinkled with hammocks and a private cove. The hotel is constructed of beautiful... More

Hotel Amor de Mar is a delightful hotel, in a great location a short walk from Montezuma. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful - a beach setting, with a green lawn with hammocks and lounge chairs. The staff was friendly and helpful. They helped us arrange several tours. Our room was simple and tasteful with a fabulous view of the... More

If you are going to stay in Montezuma this place is highly recommended for those who want a little more than a no frills hostel. Situated at the end of town you can make a trip up to the Montezuma falls before breakfast and beat the crowds and the heat. The rooms are clean, large and have private bathrooms with... More

My daughter and I explored the Nicoya Peninsula in June 2015. We were "winging" it, having arrived in CR with no reservations beyond our first night in San Jose. After deciding to rent a car and take the car ferry over, to enhance our freedom and ability to explore, we ended up in Montezuma. We were lucky enough to get... More

Wirklich eine Oase der Glückseligkeit. We enjoyed the stay very much. Good team spirit, which can be felt as a guest. Garden area with a lot of hammocks that you can linger in, enough shadow to avoid sun burns. Breakfast is prepared by individual order and is absolutely tasteful. We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch with the best Papaya ever! If... More

First of all the setting is really lovely. Attractive gardens looking out over the ocean. Very relaxing and tranquil. However we reserved through bookings.com who advertised a swimming pool and there was no pool.

We spent 10 days at Amor in Room 5. Comfortable, quiet and with a balcony where you wake up to the Pacific Ocean what makes the place extraordinary is the owner and staff. They operate a very special hotel and restaurant. Can't recommend it more.

This is a lovely place, with a nice garden with ocean view, and great food! Enough places to sit and relax, read a book or just enjoy the surroundings. The room was a bit pricey (high season), but well worth it! The pictures on the website are e good representation of how it looks in real life.
