We just returned from a 2 week stay at Villas Kalimba! Roberto, Diego and the staff were so kind and helpful! We felt like they were family by the time we left. Don't miss out on Roberto's cooking while you stay. It's not only delicious but the atmosphere was so cozy and fun while having dinner. We stayed in Villa... More

We stayed here for a couple of days in September 2014. Awesome location.. right across the street from the beach and down the street from the main part of town. The villas are really spacious and the pool and hot tub are very relaxing. Each villa has a hammock out in front and my wife and I fought over who... More

Three weeks with the family at the villa Bruga in Samara Rock villas sector. Fantastic location. Clean, good room service every day and a 8-minutes walk from the beach Roberto is a fabulous cook and especially as a very welcoming host. Thank you to the team of Kalimba villas.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villas Kalimba. Roberto and his staff could not have been more accommodating during our visit. The villa was well stocked, clean, comfortable, and offered a perfect spot from which to base our exploration of the lovely town, beach, and surrounding areas. The restaurant and pool are lovely and relaxing. Secure parking... More

Our family of 7 stayed at Villa Sandy, a 3 bedroom house operated by Villas Kalimba. This house is on a hillside South of Samara about 1 Km. Fences with an electric front gate provide security. Roberto was an excellent host. The accommodations were excellent, plenty of space, refrig-freezer, a 4 burner stove-top, pots and pans, dishes etc, a pool... More

Just returned from Villas Kalimba for 4 nights over Christmas. Loved it!! Perfect location in Samara. Shopping, mkt next door, food, and the beach. Roberto and Diego are wonderful. Diego helped us book a deep water fishing trip and was very helpful. You do not need a car for this place, but we did rent a car. Just as described... More

Best location in Samara, steps to the beach, market, shops and resturants. The villas are clean, comfortable and well maintained. Nice pool and well landscaped grounds. Diego at reception is warm, friendly and knowledgable. Samara is still a "real" Costa Rican village with just enough services and options. The beach vibe is relaxed and the area seems safe for tourists... More

Out of all our travels to Costa Rica, this location was by far our favorite. Samara has an amazing culture and a very comfortable, small town feel. We also stayed in Nayara near Arenal during our trip, but we would choose Villas Kalimbas over and over for it's amazing culture and comforting environment. The Villa Sandy where we stayed was...
