My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights at this friendly gem of a hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful and clean, with lovely comfortable rooms that boast the best a/c we came across in Costa Rica. The location is perfect, being a 5 minute walk from Playa Samara and with great restaurants right on its doorstep. What made this hotel... More

Fabulous mid-range option with super-friendly owners who make you feel immediately at home. Our family room was very spacious with 2 separate bedrooms. All rooms look over a (lovely) pool and outside decking area where you can take a varied, filling and beautifully presented breakfast. The location was fine, an easy 10 minute stroll into the centre of town and... More

Our family of four (boys 4 and 7) stayed in Samara Palm Lodge for 4 days and loved it. The lodge is immaculate, location is just a short walk to the town and the beach and the boys loved the pool. Brigitte and Lothar are great hosts and very helpful with tips and suggestions about the area.

This is the second time I have stayed here and the fourth time my daughter has stayed here. Brigitte and Lothar are the ultimate hosts. This is by far one of the best places to stay in Costa Rica. The rooms, the grounds and the pool are immaculate. It feels like you are visiting old friends when you arrive. I... More

Breakfast was okay fruit, cereal, scrambled eggs and cold meat. You can walk to the beach and a little town. If you want to hire sunbeds make sure you get a receipt or take a picture of... More

We really enjoyed our 3 day stay at this special B and B. The property is truly an oasis, just off the road but very private; beautifully landscaped and maintained. It was the perfect place to come back to after a day at the beach. [The "honour" bar was much appreciated!] The rooms are spotless and nicely designed. The breakfast... More
