stay at Luna Azul. The property is a gem, maintained like a botanical garden. The rooms are spatious and tastefully furnished, but the main attraction for us was the outdoor shower with views over the forest and with the noise from the Pacific. The lodge provides the privacy you need, but it's also no problem to socialize with other guests in the pool area or the restaurant. Besides, the food is extraordinary. Rolf and Andreas are really great hosts and make you feel like you are visiting friends. It was always a pleasure talking to them and to hear how it is to live in Costa Rica. If you stay at Luna Azul it is definitely recommandable to have your own car as it is right in the middle of nowwhere, which of course is one of the main attractions. The closest beach, breathtaking San Juanillo, is a 10min drive away. It takes about an hour to Samara. But its even not a waste of time just to relax at the pool or relax at your private porch and enjoy the traquility of Luna Azul.
It's really a pity that it is so far away from Austria, as we feel like coming again
