We just came back from having a delicious dinner in the restaurant at the Samara Inn...it is an upscale boutique hotel specializing in seafood. I had the dorado with garlic, salad and veggies, and my husband had the jumbo shrimp. Delicious meal...including a glass of Chilean wine, our bill came to $38 all in. We will definitely come back.

We switched to this hotel after a bad hotel experience and we loved it! The rooms are very clean with comfy beds, the breakfast was very delicious. The pool was the best part, great for relaxing in all day if you want. The hotel is not in the center of town, but it's only about 7 min walk with a... More

To start im surprised by some of the negative reviews. Rooms are clean and comfortable, linens like new, ac tv, very cool architecture with lots a glass letting light in from every angle. Free breaky very good, unlimited coffees. Pool small but deep and does the trick. Safe secure parking with night watchmen on door. Very reasonable with great views... More

Seems like there are peers in an area that is desirable as opposed... More

I should start by saying that we arrived here for La Fortuna and then montezuma where we had stayed in two fabulous resorts. We got here and I almost cried. I had been told by my travel agent not to expect much but this place was a hole. The sheets were see through, the washroom poorly cleaned, the towels thin... More

Hotel Samara Inn is at the end of town...which means it is quiet and relaxing. The walk into town or to the beach is perfect for fit people looking for wonderful stroll. The price was reasonable. The common areas are lovely and comfortable. The pool is beautiful with lights for night swimming and delightful gardens surrounding it. The service was... More

Hotel Samara Inn is a lovely, modern place to stay. My daughter and I loved the air conditioned room and pool, the included breakfast, and the open reading room with rocking chairs overlooking a great expanse of undeveloped field. For us, we might have preferred a closer location to the town and beach. We paid $70 per night for a... More
