I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. The beach huts are literally 20 steps from the ocean, the hammocks outside are a perfect chilled area and the rooms are cleaned everyday to keep the sand out as much as possible. My only improvement would be air conditioning but the fan works reasonably well

We really enjoyed staying in the beach bungalow. The manager was attentive, the accommodations were simple but totally adequate and the ocean was perfect. There is a supermarket nearby and we found the communal kitchen very clean. One only has to walk down the beach on either side of the property to find tasty restaurants. Hey it ain't the Ritz...

Location of this place is unique! It is essentially on the beach. Bungalow #6 is great -- it faces the beach and is just about 40 steps away from the water, with hammocks and palm trees right outside the door! This is not a 5star resort, but you get to live right on the beach. We found this place amazingly... More

Been to this hotel twice on visits to Samara. Chose to go back to this place mainly for the location. It is not the most comfortable place in the world. My mother paid for a bungalow with AC but it did not work. But to wake up and be able to walk right into the ocean for $40-50 night is... More

We spent all of our 3 nights in Samara at Casa Valeria. Casa Valeria is set right on the beach which makes you instantly feel on holidays. The location is however the main asset. The rooms are basic on not the cleanest. Also the communal kitchen, which you have to use as there is no breakfast, is not very clean.

We stayed in one of the cabinas that opened right onto the beach, can't beat that! Our cabina was very rustic, but clean and had everything we needed. The owners are nice, the prices are reasonable, I'd come back again!

Amazing bang for your buck!! I went with 3 friends during a break in our study abroad and paid ~$100 each for 5 nights! Right on the beach (literally sand outside your door), hammocks everywhere, decent kitchen for cooking. Overall, amazing

What a great place to kick back and enjoy life. If you are looking for a luxury hotel or resort, this is not it - in fact, this is not your town; but if you are low maintenance and looking for basic accommodations right on the beach where you can walk barefoot through the sand to restaurants to Pato's Surf...

I love Casa Valeria!! there are few places one can find their own room right on the beach - to sleep as close to the crashing waves as possible - for a very, very reasonable rate! It is rustic and simple and perfect for me!! The rooms are clean and basic and the fans work well. You have to know... More

This place has so much potential. Great location, probably best in Playa Samara. The rooms are low cost but they could use the slightest updates to make this place great overall. If you can't stand heat without AC definitely don't stay here, there are fans but very hot. It is good place for how cheap it is. Mostly recommend this... More
