    This was just what we wanted. Cody and his team were really fantastic. Everything worked, the grounds were clean, breakfast perfect, rooms super clean, views amazing. Highly recommended and will be back on our next trip to Samara. Pura Vida and Namaste!

    Fabulous room and overview of the town and beach, I think all of the rooms were likely very good with a private porch! We stayed two nights here, beautiful grounds and wildlife with monkeys in the trees and iguanas strolling around, friendly and helpful staff. One detractor was surprisingly poor breakfast (microwaved eggs?), otherwise would be better rated, but they... More

    We had 5 nights here during March 2015 and felt well cared for. The rooms are super clean, beautifully equipped, comfortable and obviously well thought through. The staff are professional while friendly and knowledgeable. Walter and Gearson go out of their way to ensure you have a great experience. Lovely pool, great food, friendly owners.

    Stayed in February 2015, 5 nights. Lodge las ranas was a delight from the moment we arrived. We were greeted by the superb Walter who checked us in and thoroughly explained all the features of the hotel unlike any other of our 4 week journey. We also met the owner, Cody who was extremely friendly & knowledgeable. He also happily... More

    We spent 2 nights in this beautiful place. Situated on a mountain side about 3 miles from Samara beach. The villas are on the mountain side in tiers with some stairs down the hill to each one. They have a small pool and a view of the ocean. A breakfast is included which is first class. If you are lucky... More

    We were extremely impressed with our 2 night stay at Lodge Las Ranas in Playa Sámara. Our expectations were exceeded and if I have ever had a perfect hotel stay, this was it. The hotel sits atop a hill outside of town. We had an incredible view from our room toward Playa Samara. The pool and breakfast area also had... More

    Our first visit to CR. We spent 2 weeks travelling the country and stayed in 7 hotels. Las Ranas was the best place to stay by far. A lovely peaceful location and Howler Monkeys in the trees by our balcony. Very helpful staff, especially Walther ! Only 15 mins drive is the best beach we found in CR. You have... More

    We just got done with our honeymoon in Costa Rica. While we had fun everywhere we went, Lodge Los Ranas was by far the best memories we will take with us. I don't usually go in for reviews unless something is incredible, and this place was that. After a bit of a drive on a dirt road we didn't know... More

    On top of a steep hill this cosy hotel has a splendid location. It is an oasis of tranquility. The only sounds come from the birds and a family of monkeys that live nearby. The breakfast is delicous. The service is excellent. The rooms are not to spacous but have all you need. There is no restaurant but in Samara... More

    Near enough to Samara to be convenient, but far away enough to feel quiet and relaxed, Las Renas is a great value lodge with all the facilities of somewhere far more expensive. Great rooms with thoughtful attention to detail, gorgeous sunset views, excellent pool and friendly staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. A memorable stay.
