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!!!!

We stayed here for 1 night rainy season and boy did it rain. But was totally impressed with the cleanness of the property. 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

This hotel was booked for us as part of our package, and thought it was a nice pick for us. We got an excellent end room with a full kitchen and dining area. It was may more room than we needed but it was nice to have a fridge and if we stayed longer we would've definitely cooked a meal... More

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.

This hotel is clean, safe and very friendly. My husband, 2 year old daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights at the very beginning of our holiday. The pools are beautiful and very clean. 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
