I loved my stay in this quiet relaxing hotel, it was very clean and calming as well as close to everything, drugstore, super market, restaurants and beach. We got lost on way and end up arriving later than expected, however the staff was nice about it and help us settle in without feeling bad about it. That sure talks about...

We had a great time at the Belvedere. We showed up a day early and Manfred welcomed us with no issues! Gorgeous property. Clean and comfortable room 5 minutes walk to the beach, with a pool to relax in and cool off after. Howler monkey serenade in the evening!!

The place is near downtown but still it's private enough for couples. The staff was friendly and the rooms very clean. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the pool, it was hot the whole day and you'd expect a cold water pool to dive in and cool down after some hours on the beach.

My husband and I were (reluctantly) wrapping up our 15 days in Costa Rica and spent our last 6 days at Hotel Belvedere. We were fortunate to get the detached Bungalow which was just perfect for us. The property is extremely well maintained with just gorgeous garden areas and wonderful pool to retreat to after a day at the beach....

We stayed at Belvedere hotel during our honeymoon and it was the best hotel of the 4 week trip. The rooms are clean, lovely decorated and well-equipped (we loved the fridge, so we could always have cool drinking water). The owners and staff are extremely nice and helpful if you have questions. There are two pools and a beautiful garden....

I had a great time staying at this hotel. It is owned and conducted by a german couple and they built a little paradise. Everything is clean, tidy and made with passion for detail (the swimming pool, the flowers and plants, breakfast buffet with everything you can expect). The area all around the hotel is nature and therefore I was...

The Hotel is walking distance to restaurants and beach. Clean, well appointed rooms. Lovely tropical gardens all around Hotel. Excellent breakfast available. I would definitely stay here when we come back to Samara.

You will be hard pressed to find a cleaner better kept hotel and grounds in Costa Rica. The care for this property shows the moment you arrive. We stayed in an upstairs room of what people call the older section. Well, its just beautiful. You overlook the pool and feel like you are right in the jungle . I guarantee...

The tour company we used for our trip to Costa Rica put us up at Hotel Belvedere for our two-night stay in Samara, and we were very happy with the selection! Rooms were clean and comfortable, with air conditioning, hot water, and good wifi. The grounds are gorgeous, and the pool was clean and refreshing after a hot day at...

Cute, colorful, and well taken care of. This place is immaculately clean and decorated like the tropics with a tree house feel. Plenty of hot water to shower and air conditioning keeps the rooms cool. The owners take time to make sure the details are taken care of. Candles line the sidewalk at night. A fridge full of beverages in...
