A beautiful hotel, nestled in stunning green gardens and mountain shrubs. The Hotel is very well designed and feels like a small home even though it’s got quite a number of rooms. The staff are excellent, all go above and beyond to deliver fantastic service. The food in the restaurant was really good and was much better quality than quite a number of the hotels we stayed in over the last two weeks. We would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel as the first class establishment with fantastic management..

My wife and I traveled to a few places in Costa Rica and this was our favorite accommodation! I loved the architecture of all the buildings on the property. The rooms were also beautifully designed. There are several nice walking trails around the property. There is also a brewery onsite with a peaceful surrounding overlooking a pond. The restaurant in the main building also has a daily happy hour with a nice wine selection. The views from the restaurant balcony are incredible. Finally, we really appreciated the included amenities of having a traditional Costa Rican coffee maker in our room as well as the mini bar. Overall, we’re really glad we found this hotel for our stay in Monteverde.

Bierkeller by the lake is a lovely spot for lunch. I recommend the choripan. Main restaurant food is very good but service can be a little slow and the hot food is served on cold plates (why?). We had a lovely room with a view of the hummingbirds and varieties of mot mots.

We absolutely loved our stay in room 3, the penthouse suite on the top floor of the building behind the main lobby/restaurant. The highlight of our time at Hotel Belmar was the horseback riding through the countryside with Guillermo (“Memo”) as our guide. He is a gem and made the entire outing such an incredible, memorable treat! If you are a birder, then definitely do the Bird Quest. Walter is incredibly knowledgeable and kind. He really took the time to explain everything to us. What a wonderful way to spend the morning in the cloud forest!

Hotel Belmar is so wonderful - one of my most favorite places ever! The room, restaurant, grounds and overall vibe were all perfect and the staff was absolutely amazing! Natalia and the entire front desk were all so friendly, warm, welcoming and helpful. Our tours at Savia (Daniel) and their farm (Memo) were perfect and so memorable; both guides were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Honestly, I have never met such kind people who want to make your experience perfect. I will recommend Hotel Belmar to all of my friends and I would return tomorrow if I could! Thank you to all; you made our stay in Monteverde the best ever.

Truly one of the best experiences we've had! Everything is extremely beautiful and thoughtful throughout this space - our room had an amazing view of the lush greenery and ocean, we fell in love with making Tico coffee, every meal at each spot (main resturaunt, tea room and brewery) was one of a kind and we loved that it came from their own local farm, the micro brewery was no joke and walking the premises felt like an adventure with a bird, trail or cloudy mist to follow. Every staff person we came across was extremely friendly and geniune, you can tell they love what they do! We really didn't want to leave ... so we plan to come back :) Pura vida!

Hotel Belmar is a wonderful hotel with easy access to the Monteverde and Santa Elena cloud forests. The staff were friendly and the food in the restaurant was excellent. The highlight of our trip was the forest nighttime excursion which included rope climbing up a tree to the forest canopy and then rappelling back down in the dark. The excursion involved a small group of just 6 people arranged directly through the hotel. It was an unforgettable experience
