Great location! About a 5 min walk from the beach and close to everything. The hotel is about a 100 yard walk from the Samara-Carrillo highway. A couple convenience stores are very close, which is nice. Room was very clean, the grounds were immaculate, and the a/c worked quite well. The room was equipped with a mini-fridge and a hair...

We loved this place: helpful owner (our aircon wasn't working, he fixed it immediately), a refreshing pool in great condition with sun loungers, rooms neat and tidy, and they have every basic amenity a traveler needs (for this price range). Breakfast is extra but it was filling. Location is five minutes from the beach. Highly recommended.

the place is away from the road and quiet, tropical, great, crystal clean pool with one quarter of it shallow for kids divided by cement pillars! spent the day at the pool. Although I did not stay overnight at this visit I viewed the rooms and they were very clean.

The staff were helpful and accommodating even though we had no reservation. The rooms were spotless and great value for money. We lived the pools with the howler monkeys bouncing around in the trees overhead. A delightful stay. Also, great views! They had to have us change rooms one night so they even gave us free breakfast. Highly recommended.

My husband and I enjoyed a terrific stay at the Hotel Belvedere in June. The room was clean and spacious (we stayed in a room with a separate living area and kitchenette) and the grounds were lovely. We enjoyed the pool and the monkeys and iguanas who were in the trees. The owners were extremely helpful. I needed some medical...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and I have to say it is the best hotel in Samara!!! I really enjoyed my stay in Belvedere, it had everything I was looking for, it is a small hotel with beautiful gardens, clean and very private swimming pools, close to everything but yet peaceful, a very short walk to the...

We stayed at the Hotel Belvedere for 3 nights in July. The location is the best amenity. It's a nice easy walk through town to the beach. The town seemed safe at night too. Samara is a nice town with a nice beach. Our room was nice, but the bathroom could use some work. The lights over the vanity worked,...

Everything here is wonderful - the staff the rooms the pool and just the general atmosphere. The staff are so helpful and kind and everything is kept very clean. The rooms are beautiful and the pool area is nice and spacious. The hotel is set a little back from the main town (5 mins walk). Would really recommend this place!

We stayed for two nights at this hotel and loved it. The bed is comfortable and the air conditioning was a must - many hotels do not have air conditioning but this area is so hot and muggy that I specifically looked for a hotel with air conditioning. This is a small hotel with only twelve rooms but each room...

We booked 2 nights and stayed for 4 nights. We loved the place. Clean rooms, with all we needed. Little details as enough hooks for your clothes and towels seem to be an exception compared to other hotels we stayed in for the same price. But also a safe, fridge and a lot of towels added to our experience. The...
