We spent a week in this lovely hotel. Light and clean rooms, excellent service, a helpful and seviceminded staff who often sing during their work and a heavenly cuisine. A cozy hotelgarden with two cooks and their hens. It is just a short walk to the beach. We did unforgettable tours like snorkling, fishing and dolphin watching and spend one... More

This hotel is hard to rate because for the price it has good value. The rooms was clean and comfortable. With such a small pool and not much of a garden there doesn't seem to be an enjoyable outdoor area. It is a short walk thru a residential area to the beach. There are not any restaurants that you can... More

We mostly enjoyed our 4 night stay here at the hotel that is just a little bit out of town. It is close to the beach, and offers basic but good and fresh breakfast. On the downside the shower had a LOT of ants crawling around in it. The showers only occasionally had hot water, which was mostly ok since... More

Hotel is quite nice. Rooms are good, clean and tidy. Good atmosphere at this place. Swimming pool outside is very small. Short walk to the beach. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is simple but very nice.

We booked this hotel last minute when plans fell through for getting into our holiday rental early. It turned out to be a little gem. Small with a few rooms ,walking distance to the beach . Admittedly the room that we "bagged " last minute was the best in the house Pura vida" was the name of the room.the other... More

My Mom, my sister and I, stayed in the familysuite of the hotel for 5 days and over christmas eve. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel with very friendly staff and great service. They have good breakfast and in general delicious food and juices/coctails. The tour (snorkeling and dolphin watching) they organized for us was also great! We... More

Disgrace of a hotel. The first night we had cockroaches and ants all over our bedroom, and the hotel staff wouldn't switch us to another room. Instead, they sprayed RAID all over so the stench got to all of our clothes. The second night we found a scorpion in our room and not even then would they change us to... More

Loved the architecture and design of this small hotel! Beautiful little pool, shaded, with comfortable table and lounge chairs. Room was basic but nice (though the bed was a little hard). Fridge in the room. No need to request hot water, though the shower flow was pretty weak. Breakfast was definitely light, but tasty. Staff were very helpful. Just a... More

Low season, we were there with only 2 other couples for a couple of our 10 days. Friendly, helpful staff. Remodeling and painting in unoccupied rooms to keep looking nice. 5 minute drive to downtown Samara, 3 minutes to Carrillo. Breakfast included. Don't be put off that it is on a dirt road, most things are there. Had no difficulties... More

This hotel made for a nice, last minute getaway! Very cute, small hotel but has all you need, even a mini fridge in the rooms. Air conditioning and fridge didnt work when we first arrived but was fixed shortly after. We walked on the beach to town, which was maybe 15 minutes. Free breakfast in the morning was ok. We...
