This is a great place to stay. I had a view of the beach,and it was great. You can see the waves breaking,and sometimes the parrots fly in to the tres by the beach. The service was great. The only problem,i had was the hotel next door with loud music. The manager said they have bachelor parties,every so often. The... More

We booked this hotel because it is so close to the beach. Rooms are very simple, breakfast is good, locked area for vehicles and security at night. There are lounge chairs on the beach which are great. This hotel is also very close to downtown. it is surrounded by eating places and bars-make sure you check out taco Tuesday at... More

Casa del Mar is my #1 go-to place to stay in Samara when I'm a solo traveler because it's EASY! When I make an effort to make it to the beach I don't want to have to work too hard at being there. I appreciate Casa del Mar's oceanside location, ample breakfast, secure parking, cushy beach chairs under palm trees,... More

Great place to spend the night. Spent a few days here and absolutely enjoyed it. Rooms are basic, communal washroom, but the staff more then made up for any shirt comings. A few options for breakfast in the morning, and a short walk to the beach. Also enjoyed the beer fridge, help yourself and mark it down, made it easy... More

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend in May, and loved it. The hotel was fairly quiet, but the staff were super attentive and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and the location was fabulous. It is right across the street from the beach with a small lane way to access it. Just what we needed. The rooms were... More

After spending a not so great night at Mariposa ($35/night - see review) we switched to Casa Del Mar and enjoyed a wonderful clean and up to date hotel room at nearly the same price. $40/night gets you a double room with new sheets and pillows, breakfast included (might be just during the off season), and a shared bathroom.

This is the perfect place to rest your head and chill between the plenty of activities in Samara. The beach access is the best in Samara. The staff is outstanding. Just tell Carolina what you want to do and someone will collect you and take you to all the great sites in Samara and surrounding areas. the hotel is right... More

Casa del Mar is simply fantastic. It was exactly what I was looking for on my trip to Samara. I was traveling by myself and a private room with a shared bath was a very reasonably priced alternative to staying in a hostel. The room was simple, but clean, with a bed, sink, fan and ac. My floor had two... More

Casa del Mar is a fantastic place to spend the week with the love of your life. My husband and I have been to Samara four times and always make sure we get to stay here.
