Overview

Hotel Belmar is a rustic but elegant Austrian chalet style eco-lodge located near the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. The family-run hotel is constructed of high-quality local hardwoods, providing a warm and welcoming ambiance for honeymooners and couples. Lodge amenities include a restaurant and bar, spa, Jacuzzi, hiking trails, and WiFi in some public areas.

Monteverde is a unique region surrounded by tropical cloud forest in the north central Talamanca Mountains of Costa Rica. With high elevations and the surrounding forest, this area is cool, damp, and it rains a lot. The climate creates an ideal habitat for countless species of flora and fauna, some of which are endemic to the area. The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve protects this vital habitat and the wildlife that lives there. It also attracts visitors from all over the world who come to see the tropical highland creatures and beautiful forest.

A guided hike through the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is practically a prerequisite when visiting Monteverde. The advantage with a guide is that they bring a wealth of knowledge and high-quality spotting scopes so you can observe the birds and animals up-close. Monteverde is also an excellent place for canopy activities. Soaring through the cloud forest canopy on a zipline adventure is thrilling, to say the least. The canopy hanging bridges allow one to hike through the treetops where most animals of the cloud forest live. Of course, there are plenty of other tours and activities available ranging from ATV riding to visiting local coffee farms.

Expect quiet days and evenings at the Belmar Hotel. Located in the countryside, and on a 9-acre private reserve, the lodge is always calm and peaceful. Two-thirds of the property is forested, and there is a stream, a small waterfall, and a pond. There is also a private groomed trail for self-guided walks. Tropical gardens with native plants and flowers surround the buildings.

The hotel's spa offers a variety of massages and treatments. Couples can indulge in couples massages, or one can enjoy a hot stone massage and treatment or reiki therapy.

The Restaurante Celajes offers Costa Rican inspired cuisine made with fresh ingredients. When possible, the hotel uses vegetables grown in their organic garden. The hotel also offers room service, breakfast in bed, picnic lunches, and private dinners for an additional fee. The Celajes Lounge Bar provides a variety of inspired cocktails, national liquors, and craft beers brewed on site.

Rooms at the Belmar Hotel are rustic but elegant. The woodwork is a constant reminder that you are in a quality ecolodge. All rooms offer beds with quality linens, mini-fridge, bathrobe and slippers, organic soaps and shampoo, hairdryer, and phone. Please note that none of the rooms have an air-conditioner due to the climate or televisions due to the ambiance. Refer to the Amenity Section for complete details of what is included with each room style.

excellent guides hired from hotel for the nature reserves

06/22/2018

This hotel was everybody's favorite. The balcony with the hammock swing was a hit. Birdwatching and seeing coati's on the property was fun. The hotel is a little dated, but we had an excellent experience there. Food was fantastic! Someone was there in the evening to help us bird watch with his telescope.

When I think back on this place it makes me feel peaceful. It's gorgeous. We enjoyed our stay in Monteverde and this hotel was a peaceful part of it. I think that making it the shortest part of our trip was perfect since it is a relaxing retreat and a bit away from the town. So two nights was perfect.

06/14/2018

Lovely place, great food also

05/14/2018

Beautiful location

04/27/2018

Again no lift but we were fine to carry our bags up stairs. The food at the restaurant was very expensive compared with eating down at St Elena. Taxi cheap getting into town and back. Loved being able to have free tea and coffee anytime. The Jacuzi was a treat although one evening the temperature was cool. Great spot for spotting birds. The beautiful Motmot was spotted outside our balcony.

04/23/2018

Hotel was excellent and we loved the gardens growing the fruit and veg used in the restaurant. Unusual and memorable hotel.

04/01/2018

Honestly this was the one blip on our tour we probably would not do again. There was not much to do in the tiny town and the hotel restaurant was not great. The best part of our stay was the treehouse restaurant... It was probably one of the top 3 steaks I've ever had...

03/08/2018

We found the service in the hotel dining room unsatisfactory. The servers seemed to have an attitude and when we had just arrived after traveling all day and spending hours on a horrible road they treated us rudely when we didn't have a reservation for dinner....even though we were requesting to eat early and the dining room was empty. It was very odd to us and I did complain to the front desk.

03/04/2018

We were on the second floor of the annex with noisy guests above us. The hotel did offer us a rebate on our bill as a result, but this soured our visit to this magical place just a bit.

02/25/2018

Incredible hotel with great views. Awesome breakfast and Tico time on deck at restaurant. Coffee bar was great as well. Our room was good, but not incredible.

02/03/2018

Again an excellent hotel and what a view. The staff was terrific, kind, helpful and so courteous.

12/11/2017

we loved everything about the Belmar!

11/16/2017

The room was beautiful and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

09/04/2017

We stayed in room 3. I would suggest an elevator or golf cart to transport guests.

08/07/2017

really enjoyed our stay

07/10/2017

We paid an extra $100 a night effectively for an indoor jacuzzi which we hardly used as it took so long to fill with hot water - about 1 hour. We did raise this with PTW who reacted immediately and the staff at the hotel did all they could to make amends in regard to our 'complaint' - including a complimentary breakfast. In all other respects the hotel is very nice, clean, comfortable and good food.

07/08/2017

Lovely, relaxed hotel. Food was great.

03/15/2017

I can not recommend this hotel enough! It was incredible, specifically the service!

01/06/2017

Excellent. Fantastic food. beautiful view

04/18/2016

This hotel is in need of some renovation, maintenance, and repair. Did not meet our expectations after our Nayara experience.

03/01/2016

Excellent Service

02/15/2016

Struggled with the heat at night. They brought a fan and that helped a lot. Staff was very helpful arranging for medical care.

08/10/2015

Hotel was exemplary. The highlight was certainly the food, but everything else was great too. We only wish that it was a little closer to town, but the views more than made up for it and we ended up walking into town and taking a taxi back ($3).

07/05/2015

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in; we were very sad to leave this hotel.

06/12/2015

Great spot...Great staff.

04/23/2015

This little resort is one of the best experience I ever had. From staff to owner manager now how to treat their Guest.the room we stayed was awesome and the View oh my god what cannot describe it .
If I ever go back to Costa Rica this stop is a must .

03/14/2015

A wonderful hotel in a beautiful setting but it was a bit boring for me. I missed a swimming pool and the jacuzzi was too difficult to get to for an old guy like me. Service, food was very good.

01/27/2015

The hotel was nice. My complaint is only that it was cool and wet and the hotel room was not heated at all. I think they should have portable in room heaters available. The staff was good but I think the staff at Borinquen spoiled us.They were very exceptional
