Private space near town center and a few steps from the beach. Roberto and staff were all so helpful. Highly recommend - and looking to book now... More

Roberto served an Italian gourmet dinner to help celebrate our son's wedding. All staff was very kind and helpful. The tropical landscape around the pool and villas was lovely. The location of Villas Kalimba was very convenient. We wish there was a little table in the kitchen to give us an extra dining option beyond the villa's terrace.

We have stayed at 3 of their rental houses with complete kitchens and private pools but still include daily housekeeping and our latest stay was in a two bedroom Villa. The owner Roberto is a fine gentleman and together with his staff... More

Villas kalimba was a great place to spend our summer vacation. Nice place to stay and very comfortable. Best part was there coming off the owner Roberto. He made an amazing 4 course meal for the family that won't be forgotten. Villas kalimba was a great place to experience Playa Samara.

It's accommodating to every group of travelers for sure. Roberto's cooking is indeed wonderful and shouldn't b missed. The pool is warm and inviting. The... More

We stayed at Villas Kalimba for four nights at the end of our tour of Costa Rica. Great location, two minutes from the beach but central also to the small Playa Samara town with restaurants and shops. The hotel really is an oasis, the villas give you complete privacy and the pool and gardens are lovely. We were lucky enough... More

This was our second stay in Samara and our first stay at Villas Kalimbas. We stayed for 6 nights and couldn't have asked for a more pleasing location and accommodation. The staff is highly knowledgeable and very friendly. On our first night here my 81 year old father twisted his knee and was not able to walk very far. He... More

Have stayed here many times over the years! Roberto does a wonderful job? Great location, clean functional rooms with fully equipped kitchens, and lush grounds around nice pool. It is consistently great, so we always stay there if available.
