I stayed with my brother in this hotel in Samara for a couple of days back in november. It's located on the edge of town on a hill side (it's a bit of a steep wa up to the hotel). It has only a couple of rooms which are clean and look ok. The beds are great and the rooms... More

Finally he was lead to his apartment and handed the key. It is not true that he was the only guest, August we had an occuoation... More

The location was great and you can tell that once upon a time this place was in it's glory but it is getting run down and the girl who was acting as reception service was very poor and was never upfront on timing of things and literally we had to knock on her door 3 times and she ignored our...

Two of us stayed in an apartment for three nights and had a very welcoming and comfortable stay. The owner is very friendly (he even drove us and our luggage to our front door) and was accommodating to any questions that we had. The apartment was a great size with plenty of space and more than adequately appointed. Whilst the... More

I stayed at the Mirador last summer with my boyfriend. The apartments were exactly what we were looking for, enabling us to cook instead of going out to eat. We were there in low season, so it wasn't crowded, but Max and his wife and daughter were always around which made it feel very safe - we knew if we... More

Myself and about 5 other friends stayed at the Mirador from Jan 29th to Feb 4th. I gotta say overall what stood out for me was the amazing view, the sun sets where spectacular. Another particular characteristic I really liked was that they where pet friendly, I've been travelling to Costa Rica for several years now and this is a... More

We stayed here over the Christmas period and New Year. The location of the hotel is ideal for local amenities and the beach which is only a five minute walk away. Our room had a fantastic view of the bay and was very spacious. The staff were very friendly and Max, the proprietor, made us feel very welcome. One thing... More

My family and I went to Hotel Mirador de Samara during New Years. If you visit Hotel Mirador it will be the worst experience you'll have in Costa Rica! The grounds were concrete with a thick coat of dust, the sheets were tattered and were a mouse grey color with a musty scent. It had a great location, just blocks... More

I must say that this review is the most strangest that my hotel has received for about 20 years running. Either this traveler never stayed in the hotel Mirador , and had some information from a third person and mixed true and untrue details together. Or its just a simple way tto try to harm the buisiness 1..The swimming pool... More

We were planning a quick getaway for last New Year´s Eve but we had the problem of not having anyone to take care of our 2 dogs. We remembered then that my brother in law has stayed at this hotel with his Golden Retriever and family and right ahead we reserved our spot. I must say the hotel is nice:... More
