Our reservations were made by a travel company and we thought we would be in Samara so there would be stuff to do..... There wasn't. We had NO hot water for our entire visit which I think is unacceptable and when we allowed 48 hours to try to leave early on last night we were told no refund. It was low season so only a few people there and with the water issue I think a credit should have been afforded to us. If you don't mind wildlife... Bugs in cabin...another couple had a scorpion in the shower... And no hot water not bad. Andrea a great cook and very friendly though!!!!! Just be aware it is quite secluded and remote and if you simply want down time you will be happy.
