Hotel Belmar was a fantastic place to stay. Everything about it was beautiful - the building, the location, the town, so on and so forth. We loved walking through the paths scattered around the grounds, making our way to the pond and walking to the bar for a drink. Getting to town was super easy - just a 15 minute...

If I ever go to Heaven, I hope it is as nice as our stay at the Hotel Belmar Sunrise Suite (Yes, it was that good). The forth leg of our 10 day trip to Costa Rica, it was the best. Tortuguero was great in its own way, but the Monteverde area was our favorite location. We stayed three nights,...

We were first-time Costa Rica travelers from the US and could not have landed in a better place. We stayed three nights in Hotel Belmar. This hotel exceeded every expectation from start to finish. The room, bed, food, and location were outstanding. Had we such a good experience, we wished we had booked more nights in Monteverde at this hotel....

Beautiful Super eco-conscious hotel with stunning view of the cloud forest and pacific ocean a far. With edible garden in the back, fruit trees everywhere, complementary Yoga class, home-grown coffee served all day, and homemade bread, scones, tortilla, jam, and eggs from the farm for breakfast. I was simply amazed that they compost food waste, collect rain water, use bio-digester...

There may not be much choices in Monteverde and therefore Belmar may very well end up being the best hotel in the area. I dont know. The location on top of the hil is great and the view from the hotel is undoubtedly nice. But only from the restaurant area and from some rooms. BE CAREFUL, NOT ALL ROOMS HAVE...

Wow! Hotel Belmar was probably our favorite experience during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. The hotel has easily one of the best locations in Monteverde, with sweeping views of the surrounding forests with clear views all the way to the Pacific. The deluxe chalet rooms are nicely appointed with hardwood, jacuzzi, and wraparound views of the forest or canopy. The...

We stayed here for 2 nights: 28 - 29.9.15. A fabulus hotel. Great food. We ate all our meals here including lunch and dinner and everyone enjoys the food. The rooms have great balconies with wonderful views of the rain forest and pacific ocean. The beds are very good. The trail and lake are very nice. The stuff is helpful....

The road up the mountain was a rather scary, especially in a small rental and in the middle of a thunderstorm. Brace yourselves for an unpaved road all the way up. On arrival, the reception staff was warm and friendly. We were assisted by Elian. He was outstanding and extremely personable; an unforgettable charismatic guy! The rooms are large, comfortable...

We only ended up staying one night at this hotel due to someone stealing our bags, passports, money and clothes in town. When we went to check in, I was still upset, but the staff was so helpful and made our stay much better. Within five.minutes, one staff member was on the phone with the embassy, one with the car...
