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

I stayed in Samara, Costa Rica for three weeks in January. In Spring of 2013, I had a friend, who lives there a ways up in the mountain, scout out a place for my visit. My criteria was that it was close to town so I could walk to the Intercultura school where I studied Spanish for two weeks. It... More

The Belvedere Hotel Samara Beach is an outstanding Garden Hotel with lovely rooms and a beautiful garden. Calm, clean and good Service from the owner's couple Manfred and Brigitte, good breakfast and near to the beach and village Samara. Highly to recommend and we hope to come back one day!

Beautiful tranquil spot just off the main drag in Samara. My room was clean, comfortable, and quiet, and the owners were helpful and friendly. Beautiful pool area, nice little patio just outside my door. The in-room fridge and safe were really handy!

Excellent family owned and run appartement hotel. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere; clean and well maintained. The best breakfast we had in 3 weeks in Costa Rica. Multi-lingual staff. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, wonderful beach for swimming. The only thing that disturbed the peace were the howler monkeys who howled daily.

German efficiency - much soul. Great service. Nice rooms with small patio outside, close to perfect clean deep pool surrounded by nature and lizards and sweet hammocks. Close enough to village and beach 300 meter, and far enough to tranquil. Will recommend this place - probably one of the 4 best hotels in Samara. But this is reasonable. Close to... More

We stayed four nights in two different rooms, high season and no reservation so we were lucky. Both rooms were excellent, the beds offered excellent sleep (and I'm usualy not happy with hotel beds), the rooms had great views and balconys, refrigiator (wich should be standard, but they didn't have in other hotels I checked in Samara), big comfortable bathrooms...

We stayed 5 nights just after Christmas and had a lovely time. The gardens, pools and setting are immaculate . The breakfast is very good. Wonderful fruit. The room we had was good and very clean. It's a short walk to the main street and the beautiful beach. Very quiet . We loved Samara and Carrillo beach. We shall return.
