The people of Hotel Sol Samara are absolutely awesome. It almost seemed like all you needed to do was think about something you might need and they'd be on it, and with a smile on their face. The rooms are very nice, quite new, with large bathrooms. The air conditioners are quiet, so they don't disturb your sleep. Samara is... More

The rooms are beautiful, clearly updated, clean and well maintained. The actual location of the hotel is awkward. It is in the middle of a normal (run-down?) neighborhood in "Samara" and the beach? Not a beach a female would ever feel comfortable laying on for the day. I have never been so disappointed in the location of a hotel before.... More

My family of 5, which included 3 young adults, stayed here for 4 nights over Christmas. Breakfast was delicious (we recommend the huevos rancheros). Everyone associated with this hotel, from the owners to the cooks and wait staff did everything they could to make us feel at home. It is a little farther away than we thought from the restaurants...

Found this hotel totally by accident, and I"m glad for it. We were staying at another place just down the beach & left after one day cause it was terrible. Took a walk down Samara Beach and came across this gem. A great relaxing place with friendly owners who make you feel right at home. Spacious, clean rooms, good food,... More
