Great villas and super friendly staff and beautifully maintained gardens. Stayed here one week in January, very relaxing. There are some repairs that need doing around the house, but they seem to be working on that. Also a little trouble with the water supply sometimes, but it's always solved within a few minutes. Ask for the villas in the back... More

I had high expectations, unfortunately they were not met. Shower head didn't work very well, hammock was broke. Nevertheless, there is a fridge, sink, nice pool, friendly staff. Beach nearby, nice restaurants.

Under new management...very recently, but the superb staff from before have stayed with this hotel. (Victor, Ana, Ruby and Jan Carlo). New owners are on site all day, and always smiling and looking for new ways to make your stay more enjoyable. They are upgrading and making what was already great into an even better hotel. Any problems (and in... More

The beach is across the street and the it is right in the town so you can walk to every place in Sámara. It has a very nice pool and the rooms are fully equipped. Every room has a nice space with a hammock and a table in the front so you can dine there and have a very nice... More

Let me start by saying the property is gorgeous but small. The rooms comfortably fit two people. It had a kitchen with a fridge and sink. The shower was decent with good water pressure. It was basic clean accommodations. I did enjoy the hammock on our balcony. I spent many days taking a nap in that thing. I think there... More

This hotel looks nice, the pool is nice, the staff is friendly. But some repairs are necesarry. The shower is broken. Overall average, but broken showers are a showstopper. We were the only guests... And that is strange in the high season

It's puzzling to read the poor reviews, which was not our experience at all. I think it would be helpful to get a view on the Playa Samara to put a context onto any lodgings here. It is very laid back, has a 2-mile sandy beach, and two surf schools. There is basically one rutted road in, which ends at... More

It`s very familiar. We felt like home @pepitas. Luca, the owner is a very nice man and when he`s around very helpful. There`s mostly Victor there. He`s the `manager`. Hey, he`s not speaking English, but hey you`re in CR so you should consider study some Spanish before you go there. We enjoyed talking to him and the nice cleaning ladies.... More

We stayed here for one night, and it was great, besides having trouble with the ac. The staff definitely made me forget about the ac. Villa Pepitas is right next to everything in Samara, and the room is beautiful for the price. We paid $60 and got our own patio with hammock, a fully functional kitchen, awesome hot shower with...

Our stay in Samara was supposed to be the highlight of our trip but it turned out bo be the opposite. Villas Pepitas is built right next to the street leading to another village - exactly where motorcycles and squats speed up and let their motors howl. The buildings have no isolation whatsoever so it was like sleeping on a... More
