About Hotel Belmar
There is nothing more magical than being in a forest surrounded by a sea of clouds. At Hotel Belmar, you’ll experience just that. Sitting at the mountaintops of Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, it is not unusual to see clouds floating just outside your windows and wake up to the sound of singing birds early in the morning.
The beautiful scenery is an important reason people decide to stay there. To preserve that, Hotel Belmar has put in an extensive effort to sustainability – which is evident in both the hotel design and features. For example:
- the use of large windows promises each room let in an abundance of natural light
- fans and natural ventilation helps regulate temperature (without using air conditioning)
- rainwater is collected for reuse on-site
- water is heated by solar panels
- high-tech showerheads reduce water consumption (by 65%!)
- biodegradable toiletries are used to minimize environmental impact
Their comprehensive sustainability practices have earned them a Level 5 Certification for Sustainable Tourism. By choosing to stay at Hotel Belmar, you are reducing your carbon footprint and helping to protect natural resources!
Room With A View!
As soon as we stepped into the hotel, we were blown away by its unusual design. Inspired by the mountain chalets in Tirol, Austria, Hotel Belmar accentuates Monteverde’s natural beauty by using wood elements throughout both the Main and Chalet buildings.
The rooms are no exception. From flooring, walls to furniture, the general decor is dominated by rustic elements and warm colours, creating an enchanting and welcoming atmosphere all over the place!
There are different room types available Hotel Belmar, varying in size, layout, and view. We stayed at the Belmar Room located in the Chalet building. The spacious room features a king-sized bed, an open-concept bathroom, a separate toilet booth, a double marble vanity and a two-person whirlpool Jacuzzi! In addition, the balcony looks out to the stunning Nicoya Peninsula!!

As mentioned above, the hotel has no air-conditioning, only ceiling fans. We initially thought this would be a concern, but the climate in Monteverde was so cool (18°C-23ºC during the day / 16ºC-18ºC at night) that air-conditioning was not necessary.
You will also find no TV in the room. Internet access can be spotty. But really, when you’re in Monteverde, you are too busy to connect with nature that this doesn’t pose a huge problem.
Wellness-Focused Facilities and Activities
If you believe maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important while traveling, you’ve come to the right place. Hotel Belmar has made health and wellness a priority.
During your stay, you can escape to the yoga studio to find the balance within you, refuel yourself at the juice bar & tea room, unwind in an outdoor jacuzzi surrounded by greenery, or rejuvenate your body with a relaxing massage!
If you want to immerse yourself in nature, the hotel has a short, private self-guided trail for you to explore. You can also wander around the naturally landscaped gardens, picnic by the pond, or even sunbathe on the sundeck!
Better yet, drive to Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve that is only 10 mins away. It is a perfect location for wildlife watching in Monteverde. Kev and I spent a wonderful time at the Hummingbird Gallery admiring the fascinating creature!
Farm To Table Cuisine at Celajes
Hotel Belmar not only is the best Monteverde hotel, but also has the best restaurant in the region.
Offering spectacular views overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the on-site restaurant, Celajes, sets the tone for truly memorable meals. Moreover, it prides itself in using the freshest, healthiest ingredients, most of which are grown either on its organic garden or on the Belmar family farm, Madre Tierra.
Note: The hotel offers various Madre Tierra tours, including farm and horseback riding experience ($70), farm to table experience ($150), garden to class cocktail glass ($45), and brewery tour ($15).
Whether it is breakfast, lunch, or dinner you’re after, it will always be amazing! We highly recommend having a romantic dinner at Celajes (even if you’re not staying there). The grilled octopus ($24) was mindblowingly tender and buttery soft. Without a word of a lie, it is the best we have ever eaten! Also, not to be missed is the pork belly 12 hours ($23), which was fantastically juicy.
There are numerous eco-friendly hotels in Monteverde. But only at Hotel Belmar, you will find luxury and sustainability coexist. From the jaw-dropping scenery to the delicious, farm-fresh culinary experience, it is hard not to fall in love with Hotel Belmar. It is considered the best Monteverde hotel for good reasons.

I’ve been to Costa Rica a few times and never heard of this place! It looks like an amazing place to stay. Those views are amazing! And I love the huge tub. Great place to soak while taking in the great views!
The hotel Belmar in Monteverde in Costa Rica looks amazing! Especially the room you had with so much natural light. I really like that they put so much effort into sustainability! This makes me want to stay there event more! I wonder though if I will ever have afford staying in this kind of place.
Costa Rica is a mystery to me. When you mentioned the term-‘laidback tropical paradise’ I got a faint idea what it must be like. I love reading about this property. I prefer huge windows and well ventilated rooms. I am glad that they are also eco friendly.
I like the earthy feel that this place has. Not only is it comfortable but I like the whole sustainable tourism bit. Good to see rainwater being put to use as well as solar energy as a key source.
I’d really love to visit Costa Rica to see these spectacular sights. I know it’s big on eco-tourism there, so Hotel Belmar really fits in with this. You’re right about those views, just incredible, and your food sounds good too, I love octopus!
Wow, the hotel and the location are on point! I love that it’s overlooking the reserve and that the hotel is eco friendly! We haven’t been to Costa Rica yet, I would love to stay here when we do. I love that the onsite restaurant offers views all the way to the ocean too!
Costa Rica seems quite similar to Ecuador because of the cloud forests etc. I love to stay at unique places like this. You feel so much better when you choose an eco-friendly place to stay I think. Monteverde Hotel looks so peaceful as well 😀 Hope I get to go to Costa Rica soon 😀
This hotel looks fab! I love all the wellness add-ons that it provides. I think if I stayed here though, it would be hard to leave! I can’t believe you get to live amongst the clouds here too. Dreamy!
Hotel Belmar looks like the perfect place to stay in Monteverde. I visited many places in Costa Rica on day trips from San Jose but after seeing how you can live in luxury and a clean environment in Monteverde I must base myself there next time! The wellness focused facilities on site look perfect for the location it’s in. Especially the juice bar – Costa Rica has the best fresh fruit!
Monteverde is one place in Costa Rica that I wanted to go but didn’t get a chance. I can’t imagine a better place to stay than Hotel Belmar. What a dream to be up in the treetops. I am very envious and think I will need to come back to CR to check this place out.
You had me at rooms with a view. That is why I always like to book rooms with balconies so I can have somewhere to sit and sip my coffee while relishing the view. Nothing screams vacation more than that! And can we talk about how amazing that bathroom is!
I love the outdoor jacuzzi with so many green trees and nice atmosphere. Also, the room looks gorgeous with the architecture and the design. Trying horse riding and enjoying juicy pork belly sound really nice to me too! I would love to stay here if I’m around Monteverde.
I was thinking mountain chalet from the pictures but the jungle hardwood details and furniture are exquisite. I love the views of the jungle and the connection you get with the area. We didn’t make it to Monteverde and only climbed the hill as far as Arenal but this looks like a beautiful property to explore the cloud forest from.
Great…!! nice article very usefull your post Thank you so much for sharing this and the information provide.
Hotel Belmar looks stunning with gorgeous surroundings. I love hotels designed in such a way where you can enjoy abundance sunlight. I loved the room a lot. I have lived a plenty of these kinds hotels in India, especially in Himalayas. Its a best place to unwind.
Wow! it’s an outstanding post. Thank you so much for sharing this post. I love hotels designed in such a way where you can enjoy abundance sunlight. I just love the outstanding views of the jungle and the connection you get with the area.
Ohh love this! I’m trying to really make a point to only stay at eco-friendly spots if possible and this looks lovely. I’m definitely adding to my Costa Rica file. I also really love the natural sunlight element.
What a beautiful property! Love everything from the classic chalet style of the buildings to all of the wood paneled interiors. Your view really is breathtaking. After spending one day in Costa Rica on a cruise this last year, I know I want to go back — and this looks like a perfect place to stay.
I love the natural feel of these hotels. The wooden accents and open air concepts make it really seem like you’re in a tropical paradise! You have the best taste in lodging!
