This was a lovely hotel, close to the beach, very clean, with friendly owners. Our room was feet away from the pool, with chaise lounges where we could relax and listen to the occasional howl of a howler monkey. A full breakfast was offered every morning including egg options, fresh fruit, toast, coffee, and juice. Thanks for the excellent stay!...

Very nice surroundings, 5 min walk from sea, but seaview with gsm tower. Bed could be better. Bit worn shower with warm water. Great breakfast ($8,-- with lots of choice). Very friendly, experienced owners. Nice pool and seating area. Good wifi.

Everything is great here. Places are spotless, pool is great and so its very flowery surrounding the areas around the pool. Located a tad away from the beach (like 3-4 min walk). Right in town, yet quiet. Very very recommended.

The Belvedere Hotel is a wonderful place to stay! Impeccably clean, spacious, comfortable rooms. Very close to downtown Samara and Playa Samara, and yet you feel that you are staying in the middle of a lush jungle. Michelle and Manfred have created a little paradise on the hill above town!

Friendliest owners, Manfred and Michaela. They are very hardworking and always smiling, to make sure that your stay is a great one. Everything is super clean. Beautiful pool and grounds wonderfully maintained. Very quiet but also in central location, 5 minute walk to the beach. And Samara has miles and miles of beautiful beach and is one of the safest...

Located on the edge of Playa Samara the Belvedere was a peaceful place to stop. It was spotlessly clean and our room was ready despite an early arrival. Our room opened on to a small patio and then straight into the pool. Room had a fridge, hairdryer and coffee maker. The owners were welcoming and helpful even providing glue to...

This place was a gem. We made our booking by e-mail the day before our arrival, and everything was ready for us on arrival. Our room had been very lovingly prepared, and was very clean and comfortable. Michaela and Ralf (the German owners) were very attentive to our needs and you can tell that they both work extremely hard to...

This family-driven Hotel Belvedere has a "soul" created by the owners, Mikaela and Manfred. Rooms, garden, pool, the five minutes walking distance to village and sea is perfect. The self- -service bar "Trust and Karma" makes a feeling you belong to the family! Leif, Sweden

I stayed just for 1 night, but as soon as I arrived I got a really clear idea of the kind of hotel I was. Great staff, great breakfast, great price too. The owners attended me at the reception and guided me to my room, which by the way is right in front of the pool. The room was very...

I was thrilled to find Hotel Belvedere! My room was charming and spotless. The owners and staff were very kind and helpful. I think my favorite part was the great breakfast, served in an outdoor dinning room with a great view of the ocean.
