Hotel Sol Sámara is a little paradise situated in the midst of the locals 100 yards from the most beautiful 5 km long and wide, breathtaking beach Playa Sámara. The hotel staff and the boss are so friendly and helpful, and they do everything to make you feel comfortable and at home!
It takes a car- or bus ride to get there, like almost one hour from the nearest bigger town, Nicoya, so it is situated quite far away from the tourist tracks which is nice if you enjoy more remote areas. It is a very quiet place, the nearest village with some small shops, is 3 kms away. There are several, nice restaurants in that village. You can walk along the beach to get to the village, it takes like 30-45 minutes. Or you can take a cab for 2000 colones (3 dollars). The staff will happily help you out to phone for a taxi. Life in the area is easygoing and slow. It is a remote area. You can breathe deeply here and relax. Beautiful sunsets. You almost have the beach for yourself. It is a perfect place to go surfing and swimming, and a lot of surfers stay around the village 3 kms away from the hotel. You can walk along the beach and contact the surfing offices directly. We went out on the Pacific Ocean to go fishing, we saw those big sea turtles swimming around in the ocean, there are whale and dolphin trips. We were 8 people (2 adults, one kid and 5 teenagers).
What really made our 10 days stay very beautiful and warmed our hearts, was the warmth and service provided 24/7 by the staff. They did everything for us! It was like beeing home with someone caring for us all the time. The rooms are nice and clean with very good AC, internet ok (falls out sometimes), the food excellent!! After we had been fishing, they prepared meals for us with our fish. Christmas Eve and New Years Eve was something special. They arranged meals and party just for us. I have never experienced such a serviceminded staff! They will be in my heart forever.
It is a place for rest, peace, beeing taken care of. Enjoy Sámara, the hotel, the staff and the surroundings!
