After finding the Hotel, my companion (my sister-in-law) and me were a bit disappointed that it was not on the ocean (our fault). But within 3 hours of our stay, I was in love. Other reviews are correct: fabulous food & staff, fantastic owners & their adorable girl, cats, a dog and yes, a farm out your back door. We... More

I've been looking forward to reviewing this quaint little hotel. It turned out to be just what we needed. First of all, it happens to be a little ways out of town, which turned out to be a happy accident. It was so quiet, peaceful and serene. We walked past other hotels on our way into, or in town, and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in February. The hotel is a small family run establishment. The rooms are comfortable, very clean, and well maintained. The pool is a salt water pool and very refreshing. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of the beach, and of downtown Samara. Breakfast was quite good, and dinners were delicious and beautifully... More

This hotel is about 1.3 km from the town itself - thank heavens! Close proximity to the town might be wonderful for under 30s, but.....The hotel itself was great. Rooms weren't exactly spacious - ours was a family unit with divided spaces for a bunk bed for kids, so not much room inside, but good wardrobe space with shelving as... More

We stayed in Samara for 5 nights during our holiday in Costa Rica and we had a fantastic time. I would say that the friendliness of the hotel staff really made our stay enjoyable in Samara. Granted, the hotel is not on the beach, it isn't far either. If you have a car, it's a very quick car ride and... More

We just returned from 4 nights at the Pacific Lodge. We had a lovely stay. This was the last part of our trip so we wanted to relax and soak up the last of the rays while we had a chance. Clémence, the owner, is super hardworking and kind. She upgraded our room and took good care of us during... More

Samara Pacific Lodge is at the same time close to "downtown" Samara and far enough that you can just stay there and enjoy your evening by the pool and take a break from the beach. We found ourselves very lucky to stay in room 14, which had beautiful french doors and a little patio at the back. We did't dine... More

I stayed at the Samara Pacific Lodge for 6 nights in December, and cannot say enough about how much, I enjoyed my stay. The owners are wonderful friendly people, and so helpful. Their restaurant has the best food in the area, and better than most restaurants I have experienced in the US. The entire staff was so friendly, and genuine,... More

Stayed at Samara Pacific Lodge for three nights in December 13. Rooms were simply decorated but very clean and spacious. Nice pool and tasty breakfast. Just wish it was a bit closer to town, 15 mins walk.

The location is just outside the centre of samara, which is why having a bike or car is recommended. The accomodations and it's facilities look really nice; food is good, pool looks really nice, surroundings are green. The room are good, quite basic, but nice. The downside is that our room had no wifi in the room, even though this... More
