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

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

Our pick was Hotel Belvedere .The Owner Manfred and his lovely wife Michelle made us feel right at home, beds were super comfortable , the grounds and... More

Really beautiful property. The grounds are well maintained and the pool is really clean and lovely. I had a room right next to the pool and loved it! The owners are very kind and helpful. 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
