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. 

Ori, Amor de Mar Founder

Heavenly place with fantastic location .. the sound of the waves hitting the rocks .. a short walk from Montezuma and right ar the entrance of the waterfall.. the views were incredible and we were also amazed by the lovely attention to detail of the actual house ..

This is a great property, beautiful ocean views and within walking distance to the small "downtown" in Montezuma, and a short drive from Santa Teresa. The roads in the area are challenging, especially when it rains so a 4x4/SUV is recommendable. Our stay was very short and we only had one day without rain. Still it was an enjoyable stay.

Beautiful house right on the water. The property was really well maintained and staff helpful and friendly. Heads up before booking that the expeditions are NOT included with the stay but rather communication and set up can be arranged by staff. Also breakfast was delicious but they are closed on Tuesdays. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Ideal location and the views are amazing.

Staying at Amor de Mar was a wonderful authentic Costa Rican experience. The grounds are full of lush greenery with tons of mature trees of all kinds. Ori and her wonderful staff were terrific and always provide great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. We also had a delicious breakfast at the hotel restaurant. This place is awesome! We will definitely go back to visit Montezuma and stay again at Amor de Mar.

This place was absolutely amazing and surpassed our expectations! We enjoyed great hospitality, stunning views, and the restaurant there serves great breakfast. The location was ideal and it was the perfect combination of experiencing the jungle and the ocean at the same time! It was a great place to spend our last few days in Costa Rica and we look forward to coming back!
