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

Our family vacations were better than I expected. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, great food, excellent location, especially near the beach. The best holiday, especially for my daughter, she loved it!

From the moment we checked into this quaint hotel located just a short drive away from the main town area, we were greeted by a pleasant setting and hotel staff members. Giana at the front desk was there to address all of our questions about the area and provided directions to Samara beach, located just 200 metres from the hotel.... More

The place was a very clean, cozy, people are very attentive and less than a minute away from Samara beach walking distance. The food was delicious, very Costa Rican. We did not want to leave. Also, another beach close by called Carrillo very isolated for a more romantic getaway.

After a week in Costa Rica of relatively forgettable meals, we ran into some fellow travelers in Samara who were staying at Hotel Sol Samara. We followed their recommendation and called to request dinner that night. The new hotel at outskirts of Samara is a beautiful new simple structure with spacious airconditioned rooms. The host's mother cooked and served us... More
