We stayed in Sandy Villa and can’t wait to return! We really did feel like it was genuine 5 star service. The villa was well kept, spacious and perfect for our family. Besides the amazing staff, the private pool and location (Carrillo (5 min drive) and Samara center (2 min drive)), was our favorite part of the experience. Many thanks to Carolina!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Kalimbas. As a family of 4 with toddler twins, the family suite was perfect for us. While the room is basic, it’s super clean and had everything we needed for our 3 day stay. The location of the hotel is perfect, right across the street from the beach and easy walking distance to town. The pool and beautiful jungle like hotel grounds were kept immaculately. The staff is wonderful, especially Diego who answered all our questions and requests with a constant cheerful smile and greeting. We would happily stay here again the next time we visit Samara!

The location was perfect walking distance just outside of the main strip. The property is great and relaxing. The crew at Villas Kalimba couldn’t be better! Highly recommend and will definitely stay again if we return to Samara.

I just completed my fourth stay at Villas Kalimba and it was, as always, an absolutely wonderful experience. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The casitas are perfect with fully equipped kitchens. I love the patio with the table and hammock so when I'm "home" I always hangout on the patio. I can't say enough about the staff, who I feel are like my Tika family when I am in Samara. Carolina, Mateo, Diego Isaac and Santos--they are so warm, gracious and accommodating. I can't wait to return!

Excellent place to stay. Small villas very close to the beach. Our villa had two bathrooms and little kitchen, so we could comfortable prepare a coffee or tea. Kitchen was fully equipped, so you could cook if you wanted. We could comfortable sit on the terrace and watch our kid playing in the pool. Hotel pool is cozy and clean, ideal for children. On demand they can prepare you breakfast. Our breakfast was very tasty, started with fruit basked big enough to make us full. Diego and Carolina from the hotel will go above and beyond just to make your stay perfect.
