Found this hotel by accident. About $70 to $90 a nite. Owned by Don who made is feel very welcome. Community vibe with shared breakfast, kitchen, laundry, pool. Great to convene with all the international young people. Tattoo friendly. Rooms small and clean. Most have a/c, tiny bathroom, fans. Really nice atmosphere. Nice pool. Great staff. Meeting lots of interesting people from all over the world.

The Samara Beach is a small hotel on the main street of the town, conveniently located close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We stayed here for two nights at the end of a walking trip and it was a lovely place to relax. The room very plain and unpretentious, with painted walls and no pictures or other decoration. it was clean and the plumbing and aircon worked well and the bed was comfortable. It was nice to walk out of the room to the poolside. The pool is small but fairly deep at one end, set in pleasant gardens. The chairs and loungers were very basic white plastic but the served their purpose, and we enjoyed watching the iguanas and birds sharing the pool with us. The wifi worked well by the pool, which was a bonus as all the other places we stayed in Costa Rica only had small wifi hotspots in public areas. Breakfast, served in a roofed open area near the pool and garden, consisted of fruit, fried eggs or omelette, rice and beans, toast, pancakes and coffee. The location is very convenient, making it a great place to chill out after travelling.

We stayed 2 nights at the Samara Beach hotel. Not having a car during our trip, we needed a place close to the beach and knowing we were going to a budget hotel we opted for a superior room for 4 people. The room was clean but small. The ceiling lights were burned (fixed after we mentioned it), the main electric outlet was broken and the lights were flicking on/off. There's a mini-fridge and a coffee machine in the room but no coffee is provided. The bathroom needs a reno, tiles were broken or missing and the shower head malfunctioning. The pool area with the garden was nice, breakfast in the morning was ok. The staff at the reception were very friendly and nice.This hotel being so close to beach and the restaurants would have a great potential but the rooms would need to get an update.
