Our family stayed in this hotel after we were forced to leave another hotel in Potrero (2.5 hours drive) because the Ocean there was too wavy for our little kids (but the hotel in Potrero was excellent). This was the only hotel that had a room big enough to accommodate our family of four (all others were booked), and boy,... More

Clean, convenient, nice beds, good place to stay overnight, but that is it. Located on the road, walk to Carrillo beach on the road, I did not feel save walking just on the road. Breakfast was OK. If you want a comfort- it is just for you, but when you are there you do not feel like you are in... More

We just came back from three wonderful and relaxing days at Montelaguna. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool area is nice, the breakfasts are good and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is a short walk away from two beautiful, uncrowded beaches. While it is a longer walk (around 30 minutes) into town, we either walked along... More

We didn't stay here, but we did come for dinner, and the restaurant was _much_ better than what was on offer at Villas Playa Samara! It's quiet and secluded, and we enjoyed excellent fish with local beer, followed by yummy chocolate mousse. The service was really friendly and, again, much more personal and welcoming than the Villas Playa Samara restaurant.

What a terrific place. Montelaguna is a small (20 room?) boutique hotel located between Playa Samarra and Playa Carrillo. The hotel is about 3 years old, but it looks brand new. The rooms are very nice, with modern well-appointed bathrooms, and beautiful wood trim. There is a nice pool (no diving), and beautiful, relaxing sitting areas poolside. The hotel is... More

Just finished a 5 night stay at Montelaguna with my husband and 2 kids (10 and 17). We had a great time and the hotel was great for our needs. We had a family suite which was 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. There were some quirks (eg AC didn't properly cool the 2nd bedroom, no hooks for towels, swinging door... More

It's a little far away from Samara. You can walk 30 minutes down the beach (but be careful of high tide on the walk back or you'll be walking in mangroves) or take a 5-10 min drive. It's a 5 min walk to 2 beaches. Nothing fancy but that's exactly what we wanted. Staff is friendly

This is a sweet boutique hotel. Awesome birds to see, well appointed hotel rooms. Jason at breakfast aims to please. Breakfast not so near rooms so no noise from breakfast to wake you up. Room is clean and comfortable. Washrooms are lovely but a bit small. Pool area is nice and has lots of places to read. They play nice... More

We stayed in this lovely, immaculate boutique hotel with our 2 teenage sons over 3 days. It was perfect-relaxed, laid back, tranquil and very well managed. It has a excellent breakfast daily with healthy choices. Drinks are available all day, but no lunch is served. Dinner was incredible on both occasions we dined here. Homemade pasta dishes and fresh seafood.... More

Magnificient hotel, offering quality rooms with a balcony, peaceful scenery and delicious breakfast! The fast is amazing and helps you with activities or any problem you might have. The owners are oftenly on site and provide useful tips. The italian Chef cooks marvellous dinners at night and there is a great choice of wines.
