Hotel Belmar

Northern Costa Rica

Rating: Mid-range    

Hotel Belmar overview

Staying at Hotel Belmar you'll be in the midst of several acres of lush cloud forest with a fast-flowing stream and cascading waterfall. This family owned and run hotel has a long tradition of hospitality having been welcoming guests for some thirty years.

The hotel is made up of two main chalets, both built in the style of an Alpine ski lodge, a reflection of the time the owners spent in Austria before returning to Costa Rica. They are set in beautiful landscaped gardens, with a large duck pond and sun deck. There's a self-guided walking trail that leads into the forest, giving you the chance to explore at your leisure. If you feel the need for some pampering, spa staff are on hand to administer your choice of treatment. Yoga classes are available most days and will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Sitting on the terrace eating breakfast is the perfect way to begin your day, sampling fresh fruits, freshly baked bread, home-made jams and yogurts plus more hearty egg-based dishes as you watch birds among the trees. Lunch and dinner also make use of local ingredients, many grown in the hotel's own vegetable and herb gardens.

Guest rooms in the main building are spacious, with polished wooden floors, hand-made furniture, balconies and private bathrooms stocked with organic toiletries. The floor-to-ceiling windows and private balcony look out over the forest with views of the Nicoya Peninsula in the distance. The decor is warm and finished off with local artworks. You'll have WiFi and a mug of freshly brewed local coffee is just a phone call away. Other rooms are in the separate chalet and have their own lounge and Jacuzzi with fabulous views.

Mrs. Sara Smith-Laing

"Elegant yet charming hotel with a fantastic restaurant and beautiful surroundings. Lots to do here and would highly recommend a visit to the hotel's farm to learn more about their environmental and ecological efforts. A great laugh too as the animals are such characters! "

Mr. Anthony Conway (27/01/2018)
"Great place: loved coffee, beer & fruit & veg! Our room - top of lodge was great, just that we had a storm 1st night (lost power & breakfast by candlelight). It felt like the roof was going to blow off! Can't blame hotel - just the weather!"
Mr. Martin Burt (30/03/2018)
