My husband & I spent one night here & wished we had of had time to stay longer! The owners, along with their delightful little girl are wonderful hosts, as are their staff. The hotel is in the countryside outside of Samara, very peaceful, with a pasture of cows behind it & the crowing of roosters & sounds of tropical... More

It is owned by a French couple who were awesome - very helpful and always friendly... We liked being out of town and found the walk into Samara... More

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights at this quaint hotel in Samara. The staff are very friendly and the pool is refreshing and clean. It is about a 10 min walk to Samara beach and 25 min walk to Buena Vista beach and 20 min to town. They will help you rent bicycles for $10/days $25/week, which makes getting... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in Jan 15. We had a poolside room which was very comfortable and always kept clean. There was a fan and air conditioning in the room if you want to use it. The pool was kept spotless and was refreshing after a day out at the beach. Quiet location but some way out of... More

Everyone at the hotel was friendly and hospitable. The room was comfortable and clean, though I wonder if anything could be done about the ants in the bathroom. The pool and the restaurant area are great. The walk to the beach is quite long -- 20-25 min to Main Street in Samara -- and I'm not sure I would do... More

A real gem! The lodge is a run by a very nice french family. And most of the guests here are french or french Canadian, which made this stay feel like a little bit of Europe in CR. But rest assured both English and Spanish are also spoken here. While the room are not spacious, they are very clean and... More

We did not have a car so we had to walk to the beach and town, this takes about 15 to 20 minutes which is OK. Samara beach is very beautiful! Overall we... More
