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

Very nice property & welcoming staff but rooms were dingy, basic, very musty. The beds are old & thin and the pillows were clumps of cotton. The apartments are large but we can't imagine who would cook there with all the large ants crawling on the counters, floors and walls. The linens were crunchy from air drying. No WIFI. Breakfast...

lovely lovely hotel, nice location, easy walk to the beach, unfortunately we opened our cutlery draw to a swam of ants about an inch long crawling over everything meaning that they didn't deep clean much. That said they came and dealt with it very quickly. There is a big ant farm on site. Don;t get too excited by the pool... More

This was our second vacation to Samara and we selected Villa Pepitas because of its location and the amenities we were looking for in the price range we wanted to spend. It ticked off all the boxes: 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, AC and fans and a swimming pool. The location was great, closer to town without being in the middle... More

We rolled into Samara, dusty and exhausted, and began knocking on doors looking for a place to stay. Villas Pepitas was the first to have a vacancy. The price was a bit higher than we were hoping for at $100 a night, but we were too tired to care. The "room" was huge, more like a condo. Two bathrooms, two... More

We just happened on this place after renting a car for the last half of our honeymoon. Playa Samara is awesome, and that we found this fabulous villa to accommodate us with no prior reservations the first day we arrived was also great! It was incredibly clean and the service was fabulous. The rooms were HUGE and cool with the... More

We had booked a 7 night stay at Villas Pepitas based on TripAdvisor reviews. When we checked in we were shown to our room, by a non-English speaking employee. I was very disappointed to find that our room was right next to the road. The hammock on the deck had a view of the power lines and the road. I... More

I stayed at villas pepitas for 7 days in May 2012 and I loved it. My studio-appartment was clean and the balcony was just perfect to eat and hang out outside. It is close to the beach, the restaurants and the main activities in Samara.
