“Perfect for us in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

people found this review helpful

This one bedroom condo was exactly what we imagined, yet better. It was very clean and comfortable and had a very well stocked kitchen that we used a lot. It was well organized and felt just like home with the excellent touches from the artist owner. It stayed very cool even without running the AC and the pool just outside the front door is a five year old girl's dream. Easy 5-10 minute walk to the beach every day with howler monkeys in the trees. Small grocery store, bakery, and soda right around the corner - which meant we really didn't even walk into Samara-proper very often. No need for a rental car. And all the other guests we met there were extremely friendly.

“"Perfecto" - Mucho Gracias”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 for a stay in February 2013
Google Translation

Las Palmeras is a small condo community in a perfect location, a block from the beach, within a quiet neighborhood; around the corner is a bakery, small super market where you can find pretty much anything, and local eateries, or Soda's as they are called. All the folks residing at Las Palmeras in February were warm and welcoming and willing and able to share the best of the local secrets. There is a lovely pool and rancho area for socializing, hanging out or reading a book. As a middle aged, solo women traveler, writer, I felt 100% safe, with caring people in my midst as well as full security who have worked there for many years. Unit #3 where I stayed, is a 1 bedroom unit that is beautifully enhanced by the art work of the condo owner. I was fortunate to be in Samara when the owners were there and they went out of their way to be warm and welcoming. Like home, there was a slight leak in the bathroom, which was attended to promptly, with care and respect... I felt as if I was in my home away from home, with many extra amenities offered. My outdoor patio space allowed me privacy, to write, read, eat and nap on the outdoor futon with a large outdoor fan to cool. I highly recommend Las Palmeras especially for a couple or a solo traveler... It is safe, and special ... Mucho Gracias to Patty and Wayne - see you next year!
