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

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

We've visited Playa Samara many times over the last 10 years and every year we say: "Let's try another hotel for a change." But we never do. We always stay at Casa del Mar because it feels like home. The hotel is an oasis of calm in the middle of a very busy, noisy town.The entrance and courtyard are cool... More

Casa del Mar is a lovely little place, well priced, and very well run. All the staff were friendly, relaxed and professional and they went out of their way to help us in any way they could: nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast set us up nicely for each day.
