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.

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...

Hotel Belvedere Context My wife and I stayed here for three nights in mid-January. We selected the hotel because of its high ratings on tripadvisor. The hotel has two buildings, each with its own pool and gardens. We made our reservation not long before our visit and were lucky to get a room. In fact, I think we got the...

We stayed for three nights with two rooms overlooking a lovely swimming pool and grounds. The swimming pools were lovely and the grounds are very well kept. The rooms were adequately furnished, but with no fan or mosquito netting. Instead there was an air-conditioning unit. Bathrooms were very dated and unpleasant. The family of the hotel were friendly, but we...
