Stayed for 3 nights. Hotel was very clean and room was spacious. Showers are not like US showers, water comes out at like 5 gallons a minute! Pool was great to relax at the end of a busy day. Beach is a 5 minute walk away though the center of town. You can grab a couple of six packs on... More

The new part of the hotel is lovely, clean, and quiet since the hotel is set back from the road. The pool was clean and the children enjoyed it. The howler monkeys were an added attraction! It is a little walk down to the beach and to restaurants, but that was alright with us. We enjoyed the seclusion of the... More

Rooms are immaculate! Super clean and nicely updated. A few concerns...I was here during the rainy season and really wish the patios doors had screens... More

Really good value for a great room, close to the centre and the beach (everything is a five minute walk away). Lovely pool, nice clean rooms, air conditioning, good shower. Really recommend it. Felt like staying in a family home not a hotel. Recommended

We arrived mid day during low season. Had tried to book online but the form would not work for some reason. Said there were rooms available. Waited outside for an hour. Used the bell to no avail. The woman arrived and asked us if we spoke German. Replied that we did not and it seemed to go downhill from there.... More

Two of my friends and I stayed here and we absolutely loved it! It had everything we wanted. Beautiful gardens and pool, a great location, super clean and spacious rooms (with small fridge and coffee maker) AND it was quiet and peaceful. We would highly recommend it and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Samara!!!!

The pool was one of the cleanest I have seen and the rooms very clean. it looks to me that the owner and staff work hard to keep this place very clean. We were delighted to see... More

Hotel Belvedere is our favorite place to stay in Playa Samara. I've been coming to Samara with my Tico husband for 20+ years, and we have started staying here on recent trips. We stayed with our 9 year old daughter for 4 nights in July and had another wonderful stay. The vibe is so relaxing and mellow. We stayed in... More
