Playa Potrero, Costa Rica

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.

Spot on 3 star hotel- everything you need and nothing you don't. Immaculate grounds and pool. Nice rooms with good a/c. Everything is in very good working order, no easy feat for a busy hotel in the tropics. I loved breakfast and generally, really enjoyed my stay. This place is tended to with love and thought.

What a beautiful hotel! Great location, 5 minutes walk to the beach located a bit upper town. The only noise came from the monkeys in the morning. Great way to wake up. The garden is very well maintained and full of colours. The 2 pools are clean and nice. We would definitely come back here. Showers with power!

About three blocks in the from the beach, peaceful and well taken care of. The have a breakfast offering, large clean rooms, and a pool that large enough and deep enough to get some exercise. I don't think you could find a better place.

Convenient location, large clean room and beautiful pool and grounds. AirCon in the room was a little noisy at night. Didn't try the breakfast at the hotel. Room has a frig so picked up yogurt and iced coffees at the super

All the good reviews are right on. The hotel is on the edge of town, and a short walk to the beach. The grounds are tropical and lush, and the full time groundskeeper works hard to keep it that way. The owners are friendly and always around to make sure the guests and the buildings are taken care of. Two...
