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

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

Nice location near beach walking distance to center. Mold in the room masked by air freshener. Grooty pool. Sweet breakfast staff- good breakfast offering, sweet people like this make CR a good place to go Could be better, with so little work. Did I mention the mold? 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

My wife and I would strongly recommend this small hotel. Great staff, amazing and fresh dinner's won our hearts (best prawns and calamari ever)!!! The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the A/C was greatly appreciated. The free breakfast was a nice touch. A large common area on the second floor with views of the Pacific and the pool...

I thought this place was beautiful and well-equipped, but maybe a little over-priced. The pool was a great feature and one end of it has jets. The room and bathroom were really clean, the bed comfortable, and I was loving the A/C in the middle of the heat of Samara. The breakfast, which is included, was really good. I didn't... More

A great hotel that lived up to its expectations. We had great breakfasts with great coffee, the room was comfortable including the bed and all very clean. The hotel was close to the distant beach that was a real plus and although the hotel is situated in the far end of samara a 10 minutes walk brings you to the... More
