We booked a very nice appartment here. We had our own balcony, a hammock, a good equipped kitchen. Rooms had fans and airconditioning. The only downside was that the cold air from the airco was pointed directly at the bed. The swimming pool was nice and warm and had shade. Parking and wifi available. A good place to stay!

And it is the people here who make the difference. The new owners (Vivian and Geraldo) are committed to making your stay a wonderful experience. Cristian is the manager and is... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Villas Pepitas with our 2 children (9 and 11 years old). The apartment was very clean, spacious, and comfortable with a large terrace with hammock, great to chill during the hottest hours at noon. The apartment is very close to the beach with a few good restaurants nearby, and at walking distance from... More

We've stayed at Villas Pepitas twice and love it. Very chill vibe, friendly staff and nice rooms. It's about a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. Family friendly. Low key. Nice flowery pool area. Samara is a great place to learn to surf and has a great feel. Pura vida.

Spacious and very clean appartments in an exzellent state compared to many other Costa Rican places. The owner takes good care of the appartments, the wonderful tropical garden with pool and jaccuzi and her guests. Just a five minute walk from the beautiful beach of Sámara and many bars and restaurants. On top of all that the staff is super... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Villas Pepitas. The apartment was very large, the beds comfortable, the gardens lush and the pool clean and big. The garden and the apartment were cleaned daily (except for our first day), we had daily change of towels and bed linens. A/c and fans worked perfectly and helped us to cool down. Villas... More

This is our fifth time staying at the Villas. We love the location, the beach and the town of Samara with other nearby beaches and towns. The new owners since October, Vivian and Jerry as well as the manager Christian, have been working very hard to make the stay here much improved. They are multilingual which is wonderful.

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
