Hotel Belmar Monteverde Costa Rica .......quiet and comfortable hotel in Monteverde Costa Rica. The Hotel Belmar consists of two buildings; the older Chalet, built in 1984, and the newer main building. Both have impressive views and luxurious rooms. The Hotel Belmar did some major remodelling in Oct 2011 (and has removed its chalet rooms and changed them into beautiful deluxe rooms).
When you arrive at the Belmar you will greeted with a free welcome cocktail and the friendly staff will answer any questions you may have.
Set high on Cerro Amigos (the Friends' Hill, as named by the Quakers) the Hotel Belmar has a sweeping vista of the province of Puntarenas and the Gulf of Nicoya in the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is set off the main road and boasts well maintained grounds, a private hiking trails and a decent restaurant. It now offers a free yoga class in the morning!
The true jewel of Hotel Belmar is the covered Jacuzzi, built into the side of the mountain. This glass-enclosed hot tub resembles a greenhouse and protects you from the elements. The view during the day is superb and the atmosphere is romantic in the evening.

As you approach the hotel you will note the impressive facades of the chalet and hotel. Flowering gardens and hiking trails lead up the steep slope to the hotel's wood and stucco exterior. Rumor has it the owners pay to sand and varnish the outside wood every two years due to the extreme climate here. This sounds like quite a task given the steep terrain, but the resulting exteriors are worth the effort.
The Hotel Belmar is very proud of their private trail; it takes a half hour to walk through a handsome patch of secondary rain forest. Also, for the fitter hikers, there is a public trail to the top of Cerro Amigos. At the summit of this peak on the continental divide, on a clear day, you can see a number of volcanoes, and a large expanse of the pacific low lands and ocean beyond.
