Staff should be friendlier. Smiling does not kill. Rooms are not cleaned everyday, but quite good. Localization near the one of the best playas is important. We wanted to stay in Posada, but due to some mistakes in reservation we finally ended here. Poor breakfast. Shop is just across the street. Parking avaiable.

We have stayed 2 night with my siblings...over priced for the low quality service and hotel rooms...the swimming pool was used for a large family (related to the owner), And the owner had a terrible attitute when we've complaint the bed sheets were dirty. Would NOT recommend it at all.

Nothing too special about this hotel. Rooms are spacious. Beds were firm with very hard sheets. The curtains didn't close all the way. The bathroom was spacious but old. And unfrotunately, they advertised hot water. We had none, so no shower for me. But our friends in the other room had scortching hot water. Dont know which is worse. I... More

I was with my husband for our honey moon was terrible. Would not recommend at all. Only stayed one night. When we got the room, the bathroom was disgusting, smelled musty, was rusty and had ants. -The bed was hard and was out of adjustment, the air conditioner was too loud, but the worst thing was that I had a...

This hotel is certainly over-selling itself on its website. While it is indeed a good value (~$60/night) and does indeed have a pool and restaurant and A/C and parking lot, it's about as basic of a hotel as you can get. (It's the equivalent of a Red Roof Inn for a beach town). The free "breakfast" included coffee and toast,... More

Very inexpensive for what you get: king size bed, air conditioner, ceiling fan, cable, refrigerator and hot water. The owner definitely knows how to make you feel comfortable. The food at the restaurant might not be as good as I expected, but that doesn't mean that it was bad.

The owners were delightfully helpful and the room was clean and spacious. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of and we stayed an extra few nights because we enjoyed it so much (and it was very affordable). The beach is an immaculate, white-sand beach with little islands dotting the distance. You can walk... More

Great place to stay around Samara, just up the road from playa Carrillo a spectacularly beautiful, long, sandy, mostly empty beach lined by palm trees.
