Cultural explorers naturally intoxicated w/CR's sites, beach breezes, & sunshine, may find themselves trying to distill their grand experiences in glowing lodging reviews, a stack of reviews challenging any innkeeper to continuously keep up such an amazing reputation! That said, Lothar & Bri deserve these great reviews. They've obviously worked hard at making their digs very comfortable at an incredible... More

We stayed at the Samara Palm Lodge at the end of our 3 week trip around Costa Rica and it was by far the best place we stayed! The Swiss couple the ran the lodge were extremely friendly and helpful. The beds were made beautifully each day and the honesty-system mini-bar by the pool was a really nice touch. Nothing... More

We stayed at the Samara Palm Lodge over Christmas for three days and I didn't want to leave! The grounds are incredibly well maintained, lush plants, hammocks to relax in, beautiful pool and howlers monkeys around the corner which you can see / hear! Some complained that they woke them up in the morning but I never heard them that... More

After having travelled 3 weeks through Costa Rica & Panama we decided to spend our last week in Samara at the Palm Lodge! It was number 1 at Trip Advisor and we read some good reviews so we had some expectations..! We were not disappointed by our choice as it was even better than we would ever have imagined! The...

Defiantly the best place we stayed in Costa Rica. Comfortable, clean, beautiful and affordable! The owners were very helpful, kind and nice. Only tip would be to allow online bookings as we almost skipped over this little gem although they do get back to you about reservations quite quickly over email. - We would go back in a heart beat!!

If you visit Samora, I HIGHLY recommend staying at the Palm Lodge. It is owned and operated by a wonderful young couple named Brigette & Lothar who genuinely care about giving you and outstanding experience. The rooms are impeccable and you'll enjoy the family of Howler monkeys that live in the trees next to the lodge. It's only 2 minutes... More

After a round trip through Costa Rica, the Palm Lodge turned out to be the perfect place to relax. Lothar and Bri are exellent hosts! Not only did they make our stay as comfortable as possible, but they also assisted us when help was needed with the Costerican Police. The small pool at the lodge was nice to jump in... More

An all in all great stay. Nice and clean rooms, very kind owners, top service. Not to much and not to "poco" ;-) The little pool is so nice when you come back after a day on the beach. There you can really come down to get away from it all...

This was the best place we stayed in since the beginning of our Central American trip 2 months ago. Wish I could have stayed longer! It was so beautiful and relaxing that one of the days we just stayed at the lodge! Location is great, owners extremely helpful, rooms new and furnished in a functional and stylish way! An example...
