My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights at the Hotel Belmar in Monteverde. We absolutely loved our stay with them. We had a Peninsula Superior room, which was spacious, very clean and very pretty with a lot of wood items everywhere. We also had a little balcony with a great view of the Peninsula.
Staff: The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful. They provided a lot of information on the different type of activities we could do and which companies they would recommend. They booked everything for us and were very friendly.
Restaurant: The breakfast was included in the room and was great, lots of selection and fresh food. The lunches and dinners were also great, really good food and good value. We did not eat outside as we did not have a car, and its quite a hike to go to other restaurants and back.
Location, transportation, activities: The hotel is a bit out of the way. It is also at the top of a hill hence its quite a hike if you don't have a car and want to walk to a store or restaurant. However it is on a beautiful property, with lots of trees, flowers, a lake, and they also have a hot tub. The view from the rooms and restaurant is beautiful as we can see the peninsula. Although we did not have a car, we did not find that it was necessary. The majority of activities that can be reserved include transportation (and most of them are very affordable in comparison with Arenal). You can also walk to the Curi Concha reserve in 20ish minutes, and to the Children's eternal forest.
Would definitely recommend this hotel in Monteverde. They also seem to be very ecofriendly, trying to use solar energy, biological soaps etc.
