We stayed at Sol Samara for 2 nights and were very happy with our stay. The rooms are contemporary and all have garden views and are very clean. It is just a very short walk to Playa Samara, or you can also walk to Playa Carillo which is a more beautiful beach, but a 20 min walk. For us it was no problem and it was an easy walk. Sol Samara is about a 7 minute drive to Playa Samara or you can walk along the beach to get to Samara. We didn't do it, but were told by fellow travellers it only takes about 25 minutes, plus it is a beautiful walk.
We had dinner one night which was really good and we also had breakfast each morning which was included in the room price and this was also delicious!
The front reception is very kind and helpful. Leo was always willing to answer questions I had or help to book transportation to our next destination.
I would highly recommend staying at SS for its peaceful surroundings (ok there are roosters that crowed every morning, but just bring earplugs as you could get this anywhere in CR), good food, fresh exotic fruit juices, beach location and friendly staff.
Very good value for money.
