we stayed here for a couple of days - enjoyed the food and nice chats with sylvia in the evening. The rooms are not superior, but quite ok and the mattresses are excellent. 2 Minutes walk to the beach. Would definitely go there again.

Sylvia is kind and makes excellent bread. She seems to be working hard to make this place go. That said, it was loud at night because of neighboring campers and a nearby dog, not a strong sense of safety for things left in the room, food mediocre, poor lighting in the room, cats that walk across counters and tables.

Great location, great food, great people :) Casa Paraiso is one of my favourite places in Samara. Sabine, Jim and Matteo ;) will make you feel at home. The rooms are simple and clean and you can be on the beach in 2 minutes :) Casa Paraiso is also home to a vegetarian restaurant which specialises in Italian cuisine and... More

I have stayed at the Casa Paraiso several times over the past few years. The rooms are comfortable enough with ceiling fans and screened windows. There is no TV or AC. There is WiFi and parking, although I could not get an Internet connection this trip. Maintenance (e.g. replacing light bulbs) and room cleaning have been problems. Sadly, this was... More

Unassuming little piece of paradise. Steps to the beach but far enough that noise isn't an issue. The gardens are beautiful but can't compare to how friendly the staff and owner are. They always have time for their guests and coming back at the end of the day from the beach you can be sure that you will get a... More

Casa Paraiso is a quite, perfect place to stay in Samara. Close to the beach and everything it has clean and simple rooms. Sabina and all the staff are always very kind and helpful; they make you just feel at home, with all the animals and the vegetables growing in the garden! We came back a second time to Samara...

We were recommended this hotel by the Samara info center. We were impressed with the large rooms and king size bed in our room. The room was very clean and updated. The walls were colourful and welcoming. The owner Sabina was great! We had some great conversations and she was very welcoming. It is about 5 minutes from the beach,... More

We stopped at Casa Pariso because they had a sign outside saying $30 for a double room with hot water, so glad we did. Sabina was genuinely friendly and the room was spacious and excellent value. They have rescued a bird that fell out of a tree and we really enjoyed playing with him. The place is close to the... More

The rooms are lovely and very clean and it's only a short walk from the beautiful beach of Samara.In the place there is also... More

We stayed in Casa Paraiso for only one night. Rooms are very basic, so if you are used to five star hotels this is not a place for you. We went there in the end of November and paid only $30 per room. Sabrina, the Italian owner, was very nice and helpful. Free internet, off street parking. For additional $10... More
