The room was amazing and always very clean. The grounds and pool were beautiful. Very nice and welcoming staff. The only problem are the mosquitoes, but I believe they are everywhere. There weren't any inside the room though. I strongly recommend!

The Samara Paraiso hotel is directly in the jungle of Costa-Rica but close from the city of Samara around 5 minutes by car. The place is very quiet with small nice pool and very nice small cottage.

Place had everything we wanted and more. Clean and friendly. All of our hosts took care of whatever we needed. Wife and I take at least two trips a year and now we have a problem, how can it get any better than Paraiso?

We loved it here! Our cabina was comfortable and away from the others. It had everything we needed (frig, stove, a/c, TV, comfortable beds, privacy, etc.) The pool was great!

We could not be happier with our stay in February. The property is a bit out of town, which was a huge bonus for us. It is so peaceful and quiet compared to being right in town. The grounds were beautiful and lush, and we saw several howler monkeys come through during our stay. The breakfast was an added bonus,... More
