The hotel is in a good location not far from the beach and main street. It is meticulously maintained with great attention to detail. Our room was everything we could have asked for. Although the hotel itself is fantastic, the best part is the staff - extremely accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for your help with...

Had a great stay. at the hotel. Unfortunately it was for only one night. Front desk clerk was amazing. There are 2 separate buildings with their own pool. Also a jacuzzi at the first building where the reception is located. Breakfast offered for $10 at the hotel but we chose to eat in town on our way out. The beach...

The rooms are clean and comfortable, the area is quiet and not very far from the beach. The owners are Germans, really nice people. it is funny that you have a German Biergarten nextby.... They Feed some wild nose bears at 10am in the forest, it is Worth seeing it!!! Breakfast is great and definitely worth 10dollars!!

Very nice hotel. Close to village and beach, both walking distance. Good breakfast with both Costa Rican and European choice. Beautiful garden and nice and clean pools. Staff do their best to make your holiday stress free without worries. Rooms are basic but nicely decorated and have all the facilities you need. If I have to mention one point of...

We live in Playa Potrero have been to Samara a couple of times and love the area. This time we tried Hotel Belvedere and now have our spot...as long as they have availability, this is the spot! The hotel is set back away from the noise and bustle, but is a 2 minute walk down "calle Belvedere" to the main...

We were only there for a night but the service was excellent and the breakfast fantastic! The German intern (sorry I don't recall her name) at the reception was very helpful, kind and professional. The location is also perfect and while not on the beach it is walking distance to everything in town as well as the beach.

We stayed here for five nights in January 2016. It was perfect in every way - great location within easy walking distance to the beach; beautiful pool area; amazing breakfasts on the balcony; friendly staff. The rooms are certainly not fancy but they are clean and have everything you need. Can't imagine a better hotel for the price - we...

My wife and I stay here for 9 amazing nights. It's in the perfect location. Close to the beach and action, but not too close meaning at night it's very quiet. The grounds are beautiful. In fact, we loved it so much we wrote down the actual room # so we when we return we can request it again.

A quiet well run hotel set around two good pools just a 5 minute walk from the Playa Samura and the centre of town, sufficiently close for convenience but far away to avoid the noisy nightlife. Beach front restaurants are close by, as are small supermarkets. German spoken as well as English. Probably the best value we experienced in CR.
