The villa was super clean with two beautiful bathrooms. The shower had hot water that you can control the temperature, unlike the suicide showers we've used. The kitchen had everything we would ask for. The air conditioning worked perfectly. The master bed was huge but did creak every time you shift so that woke me up several times during the... More

We ended our stay in Costa Rica with our three boys here at villas Kalimba. Warm and friendly welcome and with immaculately clean villas, beautifully presented. On top of that Roberto couldn't have been more helpful arranging activities for us. And then he cooked!! Delicious Italian food which made us feel as if we were his personal guests. For comfort...

Roberto and his staff made our visit to Playa Samara amazing. Villas Kalimba was clean, the service friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. The villas are located across the street from the beach and in town, making everything within a few minutes walking distance. And one night Roberto made a 5 course meal that was by far one of the best... 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.

This was the 4th time we have stayed with the Villas Kalimba Hotel.Each time in a different accomodation. 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.
