My boyfriend and I went to Samara at the end of a wonderful trip to CR. We had read about Cabinas Villas Kunterbunt in a travel guide and decided to stay there. While the location is lovely, right on the beach, the hotel was in awful shape and the owners were incredibly rude.
We encountered several problems while staying there. We looked past the bats and other wildlife staying with us in our room, but not the exposed electrical wiring inside the shower and lack of drinkable water. Although, there was a spring water fountain in the kitchen, but it was "off limits to guests."
The owners really were the worst part of the stay. Our questions were brushed off rudely or simply ignored, and they made us feel as if we were inconveniencing them the entire time. It seemed like the only times they went out of their way for us were to make us feel uncomfortable. When we asked to rent a surfboard, the female owner said we couldn't because it was the male owner's turn to use it, and later when were sitting on the beach watching the sunset, the man dragged his dog directly in front of us, and started yelling at it and wrestling it until it got angry and barked until nightfall. There are too many encounters like this to list, even from our short stay.
We left after the first day and stayed at the Treehouse downtown, which is better in every way, and worth the extra cash. DO NOT STAY AT KUNTERBUNT!
Just don't stay here.
