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

Recently spent a week at Casa del Mar and we couldn't have had a better experience. Clean, bright rooms with good A/C, great breakfasts and a never ending supply of some of the best coffee in Samara. Wonderful staff that made certain all of our needs were met and then some. Carolina, Matheo, Santo and the hardest working cooking, cleaning... More

I have stayed at Casa del Mar many times and it is hands-down my favorite beach hotel (at my favorite Costa Rica beach). The staff are always friendly and available to chat or help you out in any way. The rooms are clean, comfortable, airy and bright. Furnishings are simple but the beds are comfortable and if you want A/C... More

I had a great time at the Casa del Mar and only wish that I could have found this earlier in my vacation. With private access to the beach across the road and a short stroll to food choices, this is an excellent spot. Carolina and the team were perfect hosts, nothing was a problem for them - helping me... More
