We spent two day in this lovely little place located in the sleepy town of Samara. While on the main road, it has a feeling of isolation as it is tucked away in a verdant, lush environment sound-proofed of any traffic noise. We are very sensitive to street noise and look for the more remote pensions and this was definitely one of them. The little path to the lodge was flanked by all the beautiful foliage and the welcoming pool.
The lounge had some lovely hammocks that we spent a lot of time lounging in, relaxing in the soft breeze from the ceiling fans, the swishing sounds of the trees and the merry birds flitting through the shrubbery. There was also a book exchange in the lounge.
Our room was simple but inviting, adorned with pretty wooden décor. There was no hot water but you do not need it even in December (the winter season). The cool showers were actually quite refreshing.
Guests had access to a kitchen and a steady supply of aromatic coffee all day. By the way, we drank water straight out of the faucet all over Costa Rica. We cooked a simple breakfast one day and a lot of people even cooked their other meals very easily.
Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and have an adorable little toddler. We had some interesting conversations with them.
The beach is a short walk away and so are a myriad of restaurants – ranging from the simple to the more elegant ones right on the beach. Two of the restaurants we tried had wonderful food!
Playa Carillo is another beautiful beach that is a 5-minute drive from the lodge. I highly recommend it.
Overall, we had a very enjoyable experience in the quaint town of Samara in the tranquil Entre Dos Aguas and would definitely return here.
