“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Stayed here for work based on a recommendation. Although I stayed for less than 12 hours, I was thoroughly impressed. I would love to come back with my family sometime!

Staff was friendly and competent. The hotel was very clean. The room had a spa quality.

Where do I begin? Exceptionally clean, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful grounds, nice pool and hot tub, a top notch bar and restaurant, great decor, large rooms!!! Get the picture? The location is great. It is very close to beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Face the courtyard. Balcony rooms lose a dining area, but have very nice size balconies!

Very nice hotel in a great location. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a great restaurant (many rewards) and a nice pool. The breakfast buffet is reasonably priced with hot and cold offerings. The only criticism (and a small one at that) is that the coffee was not very good...somewhat bitter. Would definitely recommend the Belamar to friends.

This hotel shines in many ways. Nice, clean property, well appointed rooms with balconies, excellent location and a incredible restaurant. It is also a short one mile walk along the trail to town and the beach. We had breakfast at restaurant which provides a nice buffet, but also provided made to order omelets and more. Above average breakfast. The dinners at this restaurant are incredible. Although we only had so-so service, the food and ambiance was worth the wait. Ask for a room on one of the higher floors with a balcony for the best experience.

Just stayed 1 night but the staff was very friendly, the room was clean and modern. They don't have movie channels, you have to get a DVD from their selection at the front desk which had many choices. Also, no minibar. Great stay!

Overall, Belamar was a good hotel. The staff was nice, the rooms were well-sized and looked nice, and the location was convenient to both the airport and Manhattan Beach. My one complaint was that I developed some sort of rash on my arm, likely from the bedspread or something else in the room. I told the staff and they said they would clean the bedspread, and I know they clean the carpets (or at least, they did for a nearby room), but if you stay there and think something isn't clean, let them know!

We just finished spending our memorial day weekend in Manhattan Beach at The Belamar, and it was a wonderful stay. The rooms we had were clean, fresh and more than adequate for our needs. The on-site pool made my kids happy. The staff were friendly, helpful and always available to lend a hand. And the restaurant upstairs (Second Floor) was splendid...a rare gem of a find for us! We'll be back to this hotel on your next visit to the southland.

Room Tip: The entire hotel is smoke-free, which for us was a real blessing.
