A great place to enjoy all that Samara has to offer, but also to just enjoy on it's own. Brigitte and Lothar are very friendly and accommodating. The property is impeccably clean as it seems to be tended to constantly. There are only 8 rooms for rent, all-but-guaranteeing a quiet stay. The rooms themselves are spacious but sparse (no desk,...

Of all the places we stayed in Samara, this one is by far the best. The owners are helpful and friendly, the place is very clean and nicely decorated. I can't say enough good things about this place. We had stayed at two equally priced places the days before and were THRILLED to find a place where the a/c works... More

Warm welcome from the owners who were most helpful on what Samara had to offer. 8 spacious rooms very clean and well maintained with quirky decor all centred the pool which had a beautiful tropical garden. Definitely the place to stay in Samara.

Very nice lodge in Samara. Small and cosy, and other than some other places we had a look at it has a great atmosphere. The whole place is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The owners are very friendly, have a lot of tips for Samara and really make you feel welcome. Unfortunately, it is a bit loud, as it is... More

Will stay here every time I visit Samara. Bri and Lothar are outstanding hosts. They know everything about the area and places further afield. Every piece of advice they gave us was great. Our room was immaculate. This is a small place with a wonderful ambience and far enough away from the clubs and beach to be great for people... More

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
