Now renamed the above with the same owner - yes it is out of the way (so much so that it is nowhere 20 minutes from the town), quiet and private but unfortunately this is where it goes downhill. Generally on a poor state of repair, water system on and off regularly and not good clean quality, communal kitchen smelly... More

Villa Kunterbunt was the perfect choice for my visit to Samara, I couldn't have picked a better place especially for the price!!! Travelling by myself I felt very safe and secure and the room and grounds are very beautiful, clean, organized and very welcoming. It also fully met my needs like wifi, private bath/shower, community kitchen and some local info.... More

We don´t think this is such a terrible place, but saying this is "dreamlike" or "best experience in CR" is just ridiculous. The problem of this place is that it is overrated. The beach is close and at night it is very quiet. It is a bit far away from the shops though. The place is half abandoned, dirty and... More

I have to mention that before travelling to Costa Rica I read very bad reviews about Cabinas Villa Kunterbunt but the experience I had was amazing. The place is surrounded by nature and the beach is just 5 mins away. I think they have a new management team, they are very friendly and even though there is a spare kitchen... More

A short time ago I was allowed to experience the wonderful beauty of Cabinas-Villa-Kunterbunt and it has bewitched me. For me it was a gift that was given to me and I will keep this wonderful experience in my thoughts. This beautiful place is for people who appreciate this attention to details and for people who are sensitive to recognize... More

we were supposed to stay in Samara for a couple of days and ended up staying for a week. The beach was lovely, the cabinas were a colorful blast of friendliness, and our experiences were truly memorable. For those looking for quiet , secluded, quaint, simple accomodations, this is the place for you.the price is right, it's near a much... More

We've spent close to two weeks in Samara, in different hotels, and this is by far the best value. Super accommodating, and friendly. It's run much more like a hostel, with communal areas, kitchen, and patio, fire pit etc. If you want luxury, this is not the place for you. If you want a good deal, and a real local... More

I am very pleased with my experience at Cabinas Kunterbunt, a cosy place in South Samara Beach, only 3 kilometers from Samara Center, and about 1 kilometer from Carrillo Beach. The place is full of color with paintings the owner has painted himself, the atmosphere is warm with care and personalized service, and very afordable for those who choose to... More

I am a budget traveller who is used to very basic accommodation, and am by no means fussy about where I stay, but seriously this place is horrendous. After reading about kunterbunt in an old lonely planet I thought it sounded okay, and was one of the only places in town with a room.... I'm not going to go on... More

I do not recommend staying here! The place is bizarre, mainly because Tom is such a strange man and you're effectively staying at his house. We were the only guests during our stay which made it all the weirder. Tom (the owner) wanders around the place in his underwear either drunk or high all day long, and occasionally engages you...
