We can absolutely recommend this hotel! You’ll find a really nice and laid-back atmosphere there. Silvia (the owner) and her boyfriend Chris are GREAT people and we had a wonderful time with them. They are really helpful and friendly. The hotel is close to the beach - just a 2 minutes walk away - and to the “centre” of the... More

My wife and I happened upon this place today looking for a decent healthy lunch. We enjoyed so much that we came back for dinner! Delicious food in every way, from the pasta to the raw veggies with humus and guacamole. Silvia was a delight to talk with and she is truly serving a need in the vegetarian community. Would... More

Hotel Case Paraiso is for sure overpriced and the safety of the rooms is one big question because glass is missing by the windows (not all the rooms). Tho years ago we went to the same hotel and still the didn't repair the windos!!. That is the reason why it gives you a unsafe feeling when you're away to the... More

we stayed here for a couple of days - enjoyed the food and nice chats with sylvia in the evening. The rooms are not superior, but quite ok and the mattresses are excellent. 2 Minutes walk to the beach. Would definitely go there again.

Sylvia is kind and makes excellent bread. She seems to be working hard to make this place go. That said, it was loud at night because of neighboring campers and a nearby dog, not a strong sense of safety for things left in the room, food mediocre, poor lighting in the room, cats that walk across counters and tables.

I have stayed at the Casa Paraiso several times over the past few years. The rooms are comfortable enough with ceiling fans and screened windows. There is no TV or AC. There is WiFi and parking, although I could not get an Internet connection this trip. Maintenance (e.g. replacing light bulbs) and room cleaning have been problems. Sadly, this was... More

Unassuming little piece of paradise. Steps to the beach but far enough that noise isn't an issue. The gardens are beautiful but can't compare to how friendly the staff and owner are. They always have time for their guests and coming back at the end of the day from the beach you can be sure that you will get a... More

Casa Paraiso is a quite, perfect place to stay in Samara. Close to the beach and everything it has clean and simple rooms. Sabina and all the staff are always very kind and helpful; they make you just feel at home, with all the animals and the vegetables growing in the garden! We came back a second time to Samara...
