Our trip to Samara was wonderful. We had two couples that stayed in the Alta Vista Condo and everything was clean and in working order. We could not have asked for anything better. There is a grocery store and a bakery that is about a 2 minute walk away. There is also a SOPA 2 doors down--the food is excellent....

Second time for us in condo Amapola (1st floor) We simply love the condo. The luxurious construction and amenities, the staff, the proximity to the beach and services and the price are all elements which made our stay a 5 star experience. Thanks to Patrick, Laura and Dennis. We will be back again soon!
