This was our first trip to Costa Rica! The Alta Vista condo was perfect for us! We were on the top floor and woke up to an amazing view of the beach and at night we enjoyed our wine on the deck listening to the waves crashing on the shore. The condo had everything we needed to make it feel... More

This is condo was perfect for our stay. We were on the first floor- very convenient to pool. And the roof top deck was a nice addition as well. Very well laid out floor plan. Laura was a fine host and took care of a couple of minor issues quickly. The views great and facilities met our needs perfectly. Close... More

My husband, our adult daughter and I stayed in the Amapola condo, and it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy Samara. The whole process of making reservations and payments was smooth and easy with Patrick's help. We had previously stayed in a villa in town, and we liked Alta Vista better. The condo was tastefully decorated, clean and... More

This is the best place we have stayed in our 20 years of visiting Costa Rica, The hosts are most accommodating, the views great and facilities met our needs perfectly. The rooftop lounge was the bonus spot for relaxing and enjoying the views. The building design and furnishings were well done for comfort of guests. We only wished that we... More

Awesome condo and location. Located just north of Samara. About a 10 min walk either on the beach or road to town. The location is quiet yet gives you easy access to Samara. Floor to ceiling windows give you a great view of the beach. Catherine, the manager and Randall the watchman are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in... More

This was my second stay at the Alta Vista and I will hopefully be back for many more and sooner than later. My first review is here somewhere or it got lost somehow but in any event, this is really the best of both worlds. You have a modern condo with all the comforts and a fabulous view in a... More

We stayed in the Begonia condo for a month. The apartment was clean, modern and suited all our needs. Close to the beach and the little village. We travelled with our two 16 month old twins and everything worked great.

This place is ideal for its comfort, convenience, and beauty. I could not resist waking up at dawn so that I could stroll down to the beach (even before coffee!) to take photographs and enjoy watching the early risers and fishermen quietly beginning their days as the sun came up. After local fresh fruit for breakfast back at the condo,... More

We spent a week at Alta Vista in Begonia (the second Level). The building is steps away form the beach and just a few minutes from town. Howler monkeys are a daily sight in the trees surrounding the condos. Geckos, Iguanas and other animals hang around the condos gardens. Randal, the groundskeeper does a great job of keeping the place... More

We stayed in Playa Samara at Alta Vista Condominium in april of 2013. The weather was incredible with not one drop of rain. When we arrived after driving through town and scoping out other accommodations in the area, we were thrilled to be staying at Alta Vista Condos. We were greeted by a family of monkeys that were jumping from... More
