Hotel Belmar is a small Swiss-style chalet hotel with 30 rooms, beautifully decorated; many with private balcony. Experience personalised service in a comfortable rustic atmosphere offering good food in a local style.
Many of the rooms at Belmar have spectacular views of the surrounding cloud forest. The Canopy rooms boast floor to ceiling windows just inches from trees. The Sunrise Room is also of note, with its 30-metre square terrace and private jacuzzi, affording 270-degree views of the forest and across the Nicoya Peninsula.
Why we like It
Fantastic sunset rooms that are spacious with impressive views. Extensive gardens in which, it has been known, to have been resplendent quetzals nesting.
There is plethora of hiking opportunities at Belmar. From self-guided hikes around the trails on the property to privately guided four-hour hikes within the Monteverde cloud forest reserve for Belmar guests only. The hotel guides will also take you out at sunset for an alternative perspective of the cloud forest. Birdwatching is unavoidable in Monteverde. With over 500 species, the birdlife is all around. Whether you are an expert or amateur, a half-day bird-watching is highly rewarding.
Outside the reserve, Belmar guests can experience several other activities including horse riding, sustainable agriculture and farm to table tours at their Finca Madre, brewery tour and cocktail crafting.
