Upon arrival it seems like you might be in the Alps given the chalet look of the hotel. Inside it is exquisite with wood panelling everywhere. We had a room in the chalet annexe with views into the forest. It can be a litle formal but we never felt uncomfortable. The staff were friendly and the restaurant excellent with classy looking tasty food changing daily. Breakfasts were huge and buffet style but very tasty. The hotel is just outside Sta. Elena (15 min walk) but will organise any activity you want. The grounds are fantastic and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The sunsets sipping cocktails on the veranda were fantastic. For a bit of luxury in Monteverde you can't go wrong with Hotel Belmar.
