You go to Costa Rica for the nature - don't eat it... Their restaurant is now serving turtle eggs. They are 'legally' harvested, but if there is NO market for them, they will stop serving them... Do not eat or stay at this place until they stop.

I've spend there about a week and it was a perfect hide-away. Very quiet place to relax from every day stress. Samara beach is beautiful and you can even enjoy surfing there, the waves are quite easy, ideal for learning how to surf. Local stuff was very friendly too.

We had checked into a highly rated (why, fellow reviewers?!) B and B but were looking for another place-Anna offered us a room with a huge overhead fan for $70/night with a modest breakfast. She called a cab for us so we could go collect our stuff and let us check in at 9:30am-the location is unbeatable, the bed was... More

Like another couple that same week, we found this place by walking on the beach (we had a reservation mixup and had to find a place in Playa Samara after arriving.) It is on a quiet stretch of beach about 10 minutes' walk to town. Room rate was $90 cash or $100 with credit card. Pluses: Location is beautiful, the... More

This hotel is right on the beach and restaurants are walkable as is the town of Samara. It needs some up keep. Although the rooms are clean, they are old and have old furniture and really hard beds. The pool is nice but the restaurant, grounds, buildings all need some paint, repairs and some updating. Communicating was difficult because the... More

I don't like to be negative but must warn people about the woman I encountered while at Las Brisas. This town is beautiful and the people we have met have been wonderful except for only one. My 8 year old son, 10 year old nephew and my sister and I went into Las Brisas one afternoon to check it out.... More

The hotel from the outside does not look very attractive, but inside is small and cozy, comfortable rooms overlooking the pool, breakfast has three options to choose from. The restaurant with sea view and just steps from the to rest in the shade of palm trees. It is also near the center of Samara and other beaches like Ostional and... More

This was one of the worst experiences my parents and I have ever had at a hotel. The owners are very strange. The wife running the hotel was nice but so passive to her awful husband that it was scary. Her husband is a very angry man and his presence is disturbing. We stayed for only two nights and left,...

So much potential for this outdated hotel. Great location, pretty grounds, rooms stark but clean, lovely beach. The pool needs a good cleaning & a little work. Sadly, this was the worst bed & pillows I have ever slept on....I would have been better off sleeping in my car. Or in one of the bizarrely placed broken down cars on... More

The only reason I give a four star review is because of the location. We actually had a great stay here and have been here many times before. It really does have an unbeatable location right on Samara's beautiful beach. It is very sad to see the steady decay of the resort. The restaurant is closed but they still serve... More
