A+ for service, cleanliness, hospitality, pool, and breakfast. Though it's not on the beach, it's a short walk to the Main Street and Pacific Ocean. We stayed 3 days and plan on coming back next year for at least 3-5 days and will look to stay here again. Recommend you check it out, you won't be disappointed!

I stayed here 4 nights and had a great time. The room was lovely, spacious and clean, very welcoming. I had a feeling of a high-end hotel without paying for one (40$) a night in the green season. The hotel is designed very nicely, many trees and plants, so there are many birds and sometimes monkeys nearby. The main pool... More

I stayed at Hotel Belvedere for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. It's off the main street, so it's nice and quiet. The rooms and grounds are extremely well-kept. The owners are great, and so is the lovely breakfast they serve! It's an easy 5 minute walk to the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are clean and spacious (we brought our daughter's crib and still felt like we had lots of room) The breakfast is delicious, nutritious... More

My girlfriend and I spent our last three days in Costa Rica at Hotel Belvedere and it was a charming, local atmosphere. The staff kept our rooms very clean, the complimentary breakfast is tasty and cooked by the owners, and the landscaping (gardens, pool, decks and balconies) is tropical and gorgeous. The owners were kind accommodating and friendly. The best... More

I strongly recommend the Belvedere Hotel in Samara, Costa Rica. It is so wonderful. The main reason this place is very special: the owners' kindness and their general attention to detail. This is apparent in the rooms, the breakfast, the gardens of the hotel, and the clean pool. The rooms are very nice and homey and have lovely scented pine... More

We spent 3 weeks in CR and stayed in 10 hotels that ranged from $50-$300/night and looking back can honestly say that Hotel Belvedere was one of our favourites. Definitely the best value. For a mid-range price we got great service and were very comfortable. The room was a nice big size, had a good bed, big shower, nice little... More

We had difficulty locating this hotel as the sign was blocked by tree branches hanging over it. This is a beautiful clean hotel in a tropical atmosphere. There were only two other guests checked in to the unit that we were in. Our room opened to a small but refreshing clean pool. Breakfast was served in the dining room in... More
