stayed 4 nights. clean, quiet, excellent breakfast, so no need to search for a breakfast in town. wonderful green garden and pool to cool down. if you're lucky you'll have howling monkeys and iguanas visiting you at the pool. friendly staff.

I finally had to write about it. As an expat living in CR for many years my family and I have stayed at the Belvedere many times. The owners, Manfred and Michaela have always been great. They are at the hotel every day making sure all is well. This year there were 15 of us(10 visiting from the U.S.) together... More

Thanks to a holiday cancellation, we were able to stay here for 4 nights between Christmas and New Years. We stayed in the part of the hotel that is separate from the main building, on the first floor. The room was spacious and very comfortable, with the basics (coffee machine, refrigerator, safe). The view from the room to the pool... More

We spent one night here on our honeymoon and loved the surroundings, it was like being in the rainforest with huge trees, plenty of musical birds, a lovely big iguana and howler monkeys in the morning! The room itself was beautifully decorated for us by the maid, but slightly run down on closer inspection. The balcony door did not lock... More

Wonderful hotel with very pleasant room, environment, breakfast. The owners were very helpful as well. It was also fun to watch the monkeys just behind the hotel. The walk to the beach and restaurants was easy. It was also very easy to arrange tours and be picked up and dropped off at the hotel. As a solo traveler, I felt... More

At Samara we stayed at the Belvedere Hotel. It's a very quiet place with a beautiful garden and swimmingpool in the middle. Upon arrival you'll find your room decorated wiht little shells and flowers and at night candles are burning in the garden. These little things make your stay at Belvedere really special. In stead of just another hotel, it... More

As we whent during dry season to Playa Samara everything was brown and dead looking, however when we entered the hotel a lush green tropical paradise awaited us... You can really tell that the place is well taken care of. The owners were very nice to us, they made us feel welcome and at home while our stay. The rooms... More

We stayed here for two nights. It's located just off the main strip. This is good because their is no noise yet your close enough to everything. Many hotels in the area offer free breakfasts. Here you will pay 8 bucks a person. The bright side is is the food is great and plentiful. Fruits, breads and a large menu.... More
