Hotel Samara Inn is at the end of town...which means it is quiet and relaxing. The walk into town or to the beach is perfect for fit people looking for wonderful stroll. The price was reasonable. The common areas are lovely and comfortable. The pool is beautiful with lights for night swimming and delightful gardens surrounding it. The service was...

Hotel Samara Inn is a lovely, modern place to stay. My daughter and I loved the air conditioned room and pool, the included breakfast, and the open reading room with rocking chairs overlooking a great expanse of undeveloped field. For us, we might have preferred a closer location to the town and beach. We paid $70 per night for a...

My wife and I would strongly recommend this small hotel. Great staff, amazing and fresh dinner's won our hearts (best prawns and calamari ever)!!! The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the A/C was greatly appreciated. The free breakfast was a nice touch. A large common area on the second floor with views of the Pacific and the pool...

I thought this place was beautiful and well-equipped, but maybe a little over-priced. The pool was a great feature and one end of it has jets. The room and bathroom were really clean, the bed comfortable, and I was loving the A/C in the middle of the heat of Samara. The breakfast, which is included, was really good. I didn't...

A great hotel that lived up to its expectations. We had great breakfasts with great coffee, the room was comfortable including the bed and all very clean. The hotel was close to the distant beach that was a real plus and although the hotel is situated in the far end of samara a 10 minutes walk brings you to the...

This is a great place to stay in Samara. Located on a nice quiet street close to the beach and town so you have peace and quiet but are able to walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants. The staff was wonderful - friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast too with different choices. The pool in the courtyard was a great spot...

At first glance you might think it's too far from town, but that turns out to be in it's favor. The location is quiet, relaxing and secure. The staff was great, especially Danielle. She went above and beyond when my friend had an accident on her bicycle. Thanks Danielle! The breakfast offered great choices and was perfect for starting the...

Located a 5 minute walk from the city center, this is a very good hotel for the price. It has a very good pool with different levels, making it suitable also for kids. Our room was basic but had both safe and a/c. The bit letdown with this hotel was the surly breakfast staff. They seemed to be bothered by...
