We switched from a very decent hotel to La Locanda only to be on the beach. We had less for the same price but the location was perfect. The room was basic, no furniture to unpack our things, a very smal bathroom, no AC but we were on the beach. The parking and the grounds are very secure, with a... More

We stayed in locanda and it was amazing! the location is perfect, just a step to the ocean! Rooms are spacious clean and all the person of the stuff are so kind and sweet. We passed there a great month and we suggest to everybody to go there in Samara! The restaurant of the hotel also is incredible, the portions... More

I have read a few of the previous reviews and I agree with parts of all of them. We really just wanted somewhere close to the beach with good facilities (food/bar service, chairs/beds with shade ) and we got all of this in a beautiful setting. I had made inquiries at a number of places prior to arrival, but the... More

We really chose this spot for the beach restaurant which is IMO really special - in terms of furnishings, design and location rather than the food. On our visit there was also another large group dining which I thought was the reason for the inattentive service and lack of menu items available, but from reading through other reviews this would...

OK I have to agree with some previous reviews that the rooms are not the best! But the location is superb and the restaurant area is amazing. Comfy beds to lie at the beach too ! The room was certainly on the basic side and it was noisy and the fan not that great. But how much time do you... More

Stayed here two night, without a reservation. On the positive side, it's practically on the beach, rooms are big, you can walk around samara easily from here. Negative: it's very noisy, there is a bar next door, all the rooms lookout onto the parking lot, the rooms are extremely basic, even an extra towel (in a room for 3 they... More

We reserved a room here 3 weeks before arriving. Upon arrival they had already sold our room to someone else, gave us a bogus response about not calling before 12:00PM to re-confirm on the day of our booking. Guess we made the mistake of coming back the next day. The rooms are not on the beach at all, rather in... More

The room was tidy, the shower worked and the linens were clean. The location is great to give you access to the town, the beach and the two beach bars within the complex. You get what you pay for and at 35 a night I was not complaining. When I reserved room last minute they scratched my first name down... More

Ended up staying here for one night after deciding to spend a bit more time in Samara. Very inexpensive at $60.00/night. The room was very small and one had to step into the shower to open the bathroom door to get out. The bed was a double, so if you are used to sleeping in a Queen or larger, this... More

Bad experience in an ugly, unanattended and unfriendly place, where there is no power in the electric outlets, no light in the front porch and in the half of the room, the bathroom door falling apart and an unbearable hot in cell like room because there is only one malfunctioning ceiling fan. I do not recommend this place to anyone,... More
