Wonderful hotel with very pleasant room, environment, breakfast. The owners were very helpful as well. It was also fun to watch the monkeys just behind the hotel. The walk to the beach and restaurants was easy. It was also very easy to arrange tours and be picked up and dropped off at the hotel. As a solo traveler, I felt...

In stead of just another hotel, it...

We stayed in this hotel twice during our trip to Costa-Rica in Mar-Apr 2013; at the beginning and at the end of our trip, 8 nights in total. The second time felt like coming back home. We like everything about this hotel. Unlike other hotels that are located right on the beach, at very noisy places, Belvedere is perfectly located...
