My girlfriend and I spent our last three days in Costa Rica at Hotel Belvedere and it was a charming, local atmosphere. The staff kept our rooms very clean, the complimentary breakfast is tasty and cooked by the owners, and the landscaping (gardens, pool, decks and balconies) is tropical and gorgeous. The owners were kind accommodating and friendly. The best... More

I strongly recommend the Belvedere Hotel in Samara, Costa Rica. It is so wonderful. The main reason this place is very special: the owners' kindness and their general attention to detail. This is apparent in the rooms, the breakfast, the gardens of the hotel, and the clean pool. The rooms are very nice and homey and have lovely scented pine... More

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.
