We planned to stay at Belvedere for only two nights, but we enjoyed both Samara and Hotel Belvedere so much that we booked an additional night. The hotel is big but cosy and the rooms are very spacious. We booked a small private double but owner Manfred set us up in a big family appartment. There, the kitchen is reasonably... More

The Belvedere is the perfect family hotel. Just a short walk from the beach and town, and very quiet and relaxing. The rooms are spacious and well ventilated and the swimming pool is great for a cool off in between beach visits. Manfred is a wonderful host and a great cook. One of the best values we found in Costa... More

We arrived Samara with our 3 kids. We looked for a nice room, with pool and a walking distance to the beach. Belvedere was more than we expected. It is super nice. Very very clean. We had a kitchen in our room. And it was 5 minutes walk from the Beach. The beds were a little bit hard. But other... More

The hotel is run by a German couple and their lovely dog Teddy.This was one of my favourite hotels I stayed in... More

This is our second stay at the Hotel Belvedere and we again, absolutely loved it. The owners, Mikala and Manfred are fabulous, friendly hosts with great attention to detail. They will do everything they can to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The grounds are immaculate, lush and stunningly beautiful. We had a lovely large room with a balcony overlooking... More

Stayed at Hotel Belvedere with friends for 3 nights. The nightly rate was very reasonable. The hotel itself was well cared for and maintained. Average cooked to order breakfast in the morning. The rooms were very spacious and and clean. The pool was big and was also very clean. The best part of the hotel was the location, being a... More

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
