I have to give a mixed review of this resort for multiple reasons. The rooms were nice and the staff was excellent, but not everything was glowing. The Good: All of the staff was very friendly, professional and helpful. We enjoyed watching wild monkeys on the grounds 2 of 3 days of our stay. The breakfast was enjoyable each morning.... More

The hotel is very pretty and the staff is outstanding. The pool area is nice, and we saw monkeys two days of our stay. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was nice. The water pressure was good and the a/c cooled the room quickly. That being said, the beds were very uncomfortable, and the sheets were pilled. The room... More

In the middle of the jungle but with all comfort. Room are very well equipped and you can spot lots of wild animals. Staff is professional and giving good advise. Around the area you can do lots of tour as watching sea turtles or whale or dolphin

Can highly recommend this place if you like a quality tranquil place close to Samara. Very nice accommodation, awesome views and a lovely pool from where you can spot monkeys, iguanas, birds, etc. Maurice who is 'running' the place is a really nice guy and cool with kids. And Kika can arrange perfect day trips. Our trip didn't turned out... More

We stayed 4 nights in this place that offers a quiet relaxibg environment close to Sámara center. The rooms are well equipped but rather small (we were with 3 in a room). Breakfast is served in a nice place and quality is good. Some breakfast options are served but we ate all together with our group and this created some... More

Place is quite and relaxing, with a really nice swimming pool and far from Samara noise but still close to walk or drive.

A beautiful place a short taxi ride from Samara centre, with sea views away from the noise and dust of the town. The owners are extremely friendly and will take the time to chat and offer advice on places to go and see - making it a very personal almost family service. Chatting with Maurice and Anna was especially interesting... More

Las Ranas is a beautiful boutique hotel with fantastic views up out of the noise and dust of Samara. We have been traveling in Costa Rica for a month and we have to say that these rooms were the nicest where everything worked: A/C, fast wifi, hot and cold water, comfortable beds and all very clean and luxurious. The breakfast... More

We had planned to stay for 3 nights, but only stayed here for one night as we didn't really like Samara. Cody was really good about it and sorted it out for us without any issues. As others have said, the staff are lovely, especially Maurice who gave us some fantastic tips on where to eat in Samara; we tried... More

I was warmly-welcomed at 7:30 at night by Cody, one of the owners of this family-run business, after I abandoned my VRBO rental that had no air-conditioning and where a dead animal had polluted the air. I was desperate for some clean air, kindness and a/c. I found more than I bargained for at Las Ranas. One night turned into... More
