I stayed here 2 nights and loved the place. The rooms are quiet and very comfortable and there is a pool right outside all the rooms. Brigitte and Lothan were great hosts. I left my go pro camera in the room when I departed. When I figured it out a day later, I emailed her and she said that she... More

I stayed there with a friend at the beginning of May. We came from the Caribeen side which is also nice but I immediately fall in love with the Pacific coast and this very stunning impression was also influenced by this accommodation. The owners are helpful and they try to give you advice based on your interests (e.g. we wanted... More

We stayed in the room over the reception area, which actually consists of two rooms. We are a family of three; the two room accomodations handled us easily and with some privacy, and could have handled a fourth. The room can be noisy--the locals on motorcycles love to rev their engine as they pass by since the inn is right... More

Samara Palm Lodge was without any doubt the most relaxing and beautiful hotel during our stay in Costa Rica. The hotel looks really beautiful, and has a nice swimming pool and comfortable atmosphere. Breakfast is available for 8$ pp, which sounds a quite high, but it is well worth it: you get an extensive Swiss/German breakfast, and it was the... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Samara Palm Lodge (we wanted to stay 3 nights but they were unfortunatly full the last night) and Brigitte and Lothar are juste the best to make you feel you're in a paradize. The lodge is not luxury type (but you only pay 70$), but their support surely is. I strongly recommend to stay... More

Just back from a week at the Samara Palm Lodge and I can only echo the many, many positive sentiments that others have shared about the hotel and the owners! The dedication to making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible is evident from the moment you arrive to the time that you leave. In fact, we had booked... More

We stayed 5 nights at Samara Palms. Our room was spacious and clean and we loved the care and attention to detail that Bridget and Lothar invest in their lodge. The rooms are on 2 floors on one side of the inviting pool, on another side is a shaded sitting area. We like the position of our room - downstairs... More

This lodge is obviously well run and cared for by meticulous owners. The property is new compared to so many hotels in Costa Rica that it's a refreshing change. We stayed in the first room at the top of the stairs and although, it wasn't terribly private, we appreciated the AC. The pool was warm, complete with lounge chairs and... More
