We just returned home to the US after 2 weeks at the Bambula in Samara. We have stayed with Pierre before, in Maui and this place is just as awesome! Pierre has built a wonderful compound, with a swimming pool surrounded by lush plants and teeming with singing bird and chirping frogs. The room was very comfortable, quiet and well... More

We found this hotel through the reviews on tripadvisor, and we are really glad we did! Samara is a great town, and hotel Bambula has a great location just off the main road. This location keeps you close to everything, including a 2 minutes walk to the beach, without suffering any of the noise. The hotel pool is great for... More

Playa Samara is located about 120 km from Liberia airport, and takes about 1.5-2 hours depending on traffic. Pierre (the owner) arranged for us a Taxi to come and pick us up, with a very friendly driver-Rodrigo. Taxi costs ($110-$130 depending on the time of day). Our family of four stayed in the Iguana suite during the holiday season. the... More

I stayed at Pierres beautiful place with a friend for over a month while we were going to language school in Samara. There are two beautiful, spacious apartments and two condos that are all a really great value for money and Samara was the perfect place for us, all the infrastructure you like to have (nice beach, some surf, restaurants,...

Nice little sea side town with everything you could need or want for a beach side getaway. Nice people, great food and plenty of night life, beautiful beach for... More

The place is very roomy with a full kitchen and almost every thing you could want for kitchen tools. Great shower and large seperate bath tub. It gets a bit noisy with the wildlife until you get...
