Welcome to Amor de Mar

A love story

History of Amor de Mar

“So how much is it?” That was the joke that turned into the rest of our lives. 

Ori, Amor de Mar Founder

Long story short is that we bought the hotel in 1991 while on vacation. We did not arrive with the intention to purchase anything but it was a spontaneous decision we never regretted. 

At the time Montezuma was a dirt road with little to no infrastructure. A true oasis that only received adventurous travelers as it was much harder to reach at the time. Our first morning in Montezuma we walked and came across a tranquil setting which is now the lawn of the hotel. Speaking to the owners of the property we inquired about renting the little casita that was next to the hotel and were told, “if you want to rent you have to buy”. 

“So how much is it?” That was the joke that turned into the rest of our lives. 

I have been running this hotel for over 30 years, I raised my children here and can only look back with appreciation for that fateful day.

My wife, granddaughter and I had a wonderful stay and enjoyed Casa Sol’s proximity to the beach, farmer’s market and the quaint town of Montezuma. Casa Sol is special and we felt right at home! Thank you!

Cannot describe how special this place is. The views, the flowers, the tropical plants, the sound of the ocean, tide pools, and lovely open air restaurant. Food was amazing at hotel restaurant as well as local restaurants. It feels private and peaceful, but still located walking distance to downtown. We will definitely stay here again if back in Montezuma :)

This was one of the coolest airbnbs I’ve ever been to. The host was super responsive before arrival, helping us book taxis and answering questions about restaurants and local excursions - they are super knowledgeable. Once there, we had absolutely no complaints and the staff was very helpful. This place is private and extremely beautiful - 100% will be back in the future.

Absolutely amazing in every possible way!!! I cannot begin to describe how beautiful and unique Casa Sol at Hotel De Mar is, and my heart will always have a home there! It's a location that, once you arrive, you'll know you'll want to come back for the rest of your life. Service was outstanding, breakfast was beautiful, location is world class, and the experience was perfect!!
