In the middle of Samara, near everything. Great staff and position. The owner is so available and funny, perfect place to stay and chilling for few days. Breakfast is very good and all the staff is very smiling and kind.

About
Description
The renewed Hotel Playa Samara has never been better. This long established hotel in Samara is less than 100 meters from the beach at the end of the futbal field and a great place to stay when in Samara. Well priced ...More with rooms, fits up to five people. And don’t worry, you’ll feel right at home here. Samara is truly a laid-back, friendly town. It’s a beautiful mix of locals (called Ticos), travelers, families, and retirees, with tourists hailing from the U.S., Canada, Europe and other parts of Costa Rica. In Samara the vibes are always good Less
