This is my second time staying at Villas Kalimba while in Sámara and I don’t think there is a better place to stay than here. The location is perfect and the staff is so helpful and nice. There is so much to do in walking distance and it’s across the street from the beautiful beach. I highly recommend eating the dinner cooked by Roberto down by the pool, available some nights. Very clean, gorgeous property.

My wife and I had a perfect 11 days at Villas Kalimba. The villa itself was great, cool well-appointed and secluded. The layout of the villas ensures that you have great privacy even though you are quite close to other people. The location couldn't be bettered as the beach is directly opposite, restaurants are a very short walk away, a supermarket is close by and yet, despite the proximity of all these facilities, once you are through the Villas Kalimba entrance gate, all is tranquillity and peace. Roberto and his staff were all brilliant and if we return to Samara, which we fully intend to do, we will certainly stay at this lovely place again.

Family of 5 (kids 10, 7 and 5) stayed here for the first part of our Costa Rica vacation. Everything was great here. The rooms were spacious for our family and the kitchen was nice to be able to cook breakfast and store cold groceries. The location was fantastic, a 2 minute walk to the beach and also walkable to other restaurants in town. But the highlight was the family meals cooked by the owners. We only were there long enough for one meal, but it was amazing. It was also fun getting to know other guests there. The pool was great too and we spent time there every day. I would highly recommend these villas for your stay in Playa Samara.

Wonderful large family-villas just across from the beach. Great and relaxing atmosphere. Helpful and kind staff. Owner Roberto sometimes cook - amazing and delicious Italian food, with only other Villa-guests participating making it feel like a private dinner. I can warmly recommend to stay here :)

My friend and I were looking for a place that was easy to bring my 6 month old son to in CR. Villa Bruga was a perfect spot. The staff at Villas Kalimbas arranged everything - from our taxi to and from the airport, to a crib, laundry service, and rides into town (very short 3 minutes or so) letting us store my baby's carseat at the hotel. They were super friendly, accommodating and organized. This really took the pressure off of traveling with a baby. The house itself was lovely. We enjoyed being able to hang out on the terrace and cook after the baby went to sleep. Having our own pool was a great luxury. The landscaping around the pool makes it feel secluded. The dining table on the terrace is the perfect breakfast spot. We had a relaxing time. The howler monkeys added an interesting ambiance.
