Fairly new place and friendly front lobby staff. Room is nice, good air conditioning, keypad safe, including free breakfast. This part is good overall. On the negative side, our waitress is not very friendly. We asked for hard fried eggs and crispy bacon, sent the plate back twice as the eggs were still soft. The pictures and literature make it...

This hotel of about 14 units is very welcoming, clean, and within a short distance of the beach. It has an authentic Italian chef and the food was of excellent taste and presentation. The staff were fantastic and made sure we were given excellent food choices paired with fantastic wine (red and white). We were all delighted and , if... More

Somewhere I read that if you spend some time in Sámara then you fall in love with this small little town. Well, that's true. I felt in love in a couple of days actually. We had the chance to stay at Sámara Inn and we had a great time there. This is a comfy, adorable, relaxed hotel in which we... More

What a lovely hotel. The rooms are quite small, but have everything you need, including a hairdryer. The shower is ok, but not very warm. Breakfast was ok, but I had to send back my fried eggs as they weren't cooked enough. The small pool and jacuzzi were great and we even went for a late night dip to cool... More

Small little hotel about a 10-15min walk to beach. Depends on the tide which way you can go. 10min walk to lite town. Rooms big enough, clean, good showers, ok air con and decent wifi. The pool is small but so is the hotel itself with most customers using the beach it was never overcrowded when we where here. Has... More

This is a new hotel, with lovely pool. It is five minute walk to Main Street, but considering that the whole town can be crossed in 10 min, it isn't much. The views outside of the hotel are breathtaking as well. Young-Yilang blooming, many flowers along the way, makes even a lovelier walk. If you're not into walking, the taxis... More

Clean, well run hotel away from the main drag and close the beach. Nice rooms, good warm showers, quiet. Only point to make is the service is perfunctory, (not rude, but a smile would be nice). Recommendation: if at all possible, make your way to Playa Camillo, an idyllic beach away from the commercialism of Samara.

We thought that a hotel away from downtown Samara would be quiet and close enough to be convenient. We were wrong. The hotel is located on a long, straight, stretch of road with no speed bumps, and the locals race back and forth from their residences on noisy ATVs, motorcycles and automobiles. It didn't help that our room was in... More
