There nothing wrong to say about this hotel. I loved everything and every single minute of my week long stay. I was traveling with my mother and it was my birthday mid-week. The staff remembered and had a bowl of fruits and a bottle of wine ready for us. We were in the 2nd building. We had such a great... More

Twenty-three years ago, Manfred and Michele emigrated from Germany to begin to build Hotel Belvedere. They began with two rooms and over time they have created a stunning boutique hotel set in lush tropical gardens. We stayed in room twenty overlooking a beautiful pool and lush vegetation and wildlife: iguanas, exotic birds, butterflies and spider monkeys! The owners have paid... More

This hotel was booked as part of a tour but it was definitely a good choice. The garden is beautiful, crammed with trees and flowers, and with a gorgeous swimming pool in the middle. The rooms were spacious and well maintained, with a small fridge, plus a table and two deckchairs outside on the balcony. Breakfast was delicious with portions... More

After staying at the Hotel Belvedere, it is high up on my list of favorite places that I've ever stayed, and I just can't say enough good things about the facility itself or the people who run it. It is very nicely appointed, with a plethora of nice little touches that create an exceptionally comfortable, good-feeling environment. The pictures on... More

We stayed here for the last couple of days of our hectic tour of beautiful Costa Rica. Really lovely peaceful hotel set in really pretty gardens with great pools. Very clean, comfortable with nice decor. We stayed in the annexed area just opposite the main hotel. Great to relax and to see and listen to the wildlife in the woods... More

This was by far the most fabulous small hotel where every detail was perfect. Manfred and Michelle are to be congratulated for all of their efforts to make this a special place in Samara. So convenient for the supermarket, 3 minutes walk, restaurants ar 5 minutes walk, beach 6 minutes walk. Room No. 7 was just great, less than a... More

I stayed at the Hotel Belvedere for a few nights earlier this week, and was very pleased with my stay. The photos are an accurate representation of the current state of the hotel, so there were no surprises when we arrived. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the gardens around the property are beautifully maintained. Room 19 was... More
