Hotel Belmar is *the* destination for Costa Rica. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. What also struck me was that the staff exude serenity and professionalism at the same time.

Also you did not get much sun on your balcony so ask for upper floor level. Staff were excellent. Food was delightful we had just stayed n Arenal and the... More

This Hotel was one of my favorites that we stayed at while in CR. It's intimate, the setting is beautiful with awesome views, and the restaurant food is delicious. We took advantage of the hot tub, complimentary yoga, juice bar, and trails (do NOT attempt to hike the TV tower road)! We had a King size superior room in the... More

Everything is as advertised. The wait staff is excellent and the hotel has a lot of class. The grounds are beautiful and worth exploring. The restaurant food is delicious, and we enjoyed the addition of typical Costa Rican dishes. The juice bar makes marvelous fresh fruit drinks. Monteverde is breathtaking, and worth seeing in any season.

We have stayed in many hotels in our travels, but this hotel exceeded by far our expectations. We stayed in the chalet on the third floor. The big room was spotless with wood floors and walls, with a jacuzzi and a balcony around the room which made one feel as if he is in the middle of the forest. The... More
