My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Belmar during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. I thought the hotel was very nice; there was a hot tub you could use and the landscape was very nice. One thing to keep in mind though is that it is a cloud forest so it rains a lot and the roads are dirt (not paved) so it does get muddy. The room we stayed in did not have a TV but there was a TV room. Also the breakfast wasn't included in the room rate, and it cost about $10 for the breakfast buffet. So needless to say my husband and I didn't eat at the hotel at all. There was this great restaurant - Pizza de Johnny's I think - it was VERY good!
Also the hotel didn't have the best insulated rooms and one family was leaving pretty early one morning and we could hear them packing up their car the whole time - kinda annoying.
The hotel isn't located very close to the town or really anything else. My husband and I walked everywhere but it was quit a walk. Next time we go we will stay somewhere in Santa Elena I think (the town pretty much connected with Monteverde).
