Im not sure about the other reviews.....but I really liked this place and the French couple who owned it. I came in late on CR Mother's Day sans room. My usual go-to's were booked....Ive been in Samara about 15 times over ten years. For $40 US I got a clean privado with a shared bath. It was quiet, clean and... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. Very clean room, nice breakfast, great location in the centre right next to the beach. Our hosts were very helpful: told us what to visit, helped us book our next stop in Costa Rica, recommended some good places in town. Overall, a very good stay

I can't figure out why this place has a decent rating. Do NOT stay here! Very bad service. The woman at the desk was incredibly rude and not professional. It was a very unpleasant experience. I travel very often and this has been one of the worst. Save yourself the headache and trouble and stay somewhere else. NOT GOOD.

I can't say anything good about this hotel. Christine was so rude and so unprofessional. I mistakenly booked for June instead of July and wanted to cancel the reservation. I went thorough hell to do that, indeed. I finally rebooked for our stay for July and asked her to provide us a dust-free room since I have severe allergy. (I... More

We had been hotel hopping in Playa Samara because we had a really bad experience at the place we were supposed to stay. On our last day we needed a place to stay and we were so happy to find Hotel Casa del Mar, even though we only stayed here one night. We really wish we would have booked our... More

I had booked another room in town and when I got there, the room wasn't the type or price I had booked. I was worried because it was the Easter holiday week, but then I walked down the road and found this gem! The owner was super friendly and showed me the room she had. I had a cheap room... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while in Samara and had a great experience. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the air conditioning worked well (nice when it was 100 F outside). The bathroom has a screen instead of a window so it wasn't cool (we kept the door closed to keep our room cool from the AC). That... More

We arrived and were greeted kindly. Then we booked a bus to monteverde. That also went smoothly. The location is unbeatable. Later on we figured out that we got overcharged by 23$ per person for the bus ride. That sucked. Our toilet leaked. Upon mentioning, we were told that we were hallucinating and that it was ok when we checked... More

We were referred to this lovely small Hotel by a local Samara agency. We came to town from a big all-inclusive resort up north and wanted to surf for a couple days without trekking back & forth. We wanted to be as close to the beach as possible, but cool, clean, quiet and calm. This owner operated Hotel was all... More
