We recently stayed at Hotel Belmar for 2 nights while in Monteverde. We got the basic, cheaper rooms, and were pretty satisfied with them. The setting is very rustic, so you should not expect anything fancy. The rooms do not have a TV or air conditioning, but they do have gorgeous balconies with great views of the cloud forest. The beds are pretty comfortable, but you can definitely hear people speaking from the rooms on either side of your room.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and we enjoyed the feeling of being secluded in the woods for a few days.
Compared to other hotels in the area, Hotel Belmar is definitely one of the nicest.
We were also extremely impressed by the restaurant in the hotel. The breakfast buffet was great, and the dinner menu was pretty delicious (unexpectedly).
Highly recommended, but bring your bug spray!
Only complaint was that the pool table room was currently closed, due to the recent earthquake. Also, the hot tub is only open from 4-10PM, and was lukewarm (not hot). Also, there is not fitness center.
