I would like to first say that if you can see and hear, crossing the street is not "scary" or "dangerous" at all. There are rounded mirrors mounted on the property walls. just look, listen, and cross.
My lady and I stayed at Samsara the day and night of August 29th. We stayed in a garden side cottage. It had a great patio that looked out onto jungle gardens. The cottage is a hexagon shaped with an open floor plan, except for the bath area. The cottage has no A/C, but it wasn't necessary, even in August. The bed was queen or king.Our room didn't have a refrigerator, but I think you can rent one. I don't remember if it had a TV...you won't need to watch any. It was nice and quiet, but the whole resort was, given the off-season.
Service is just fine. Be gracious. Some people on here have complained, they probably have issues.
Across the street are the hotel rooms and pillar houses, the restaurant, and general cliffs recreation area. The grounds are very clean. We liked all the potted plants. The sun deck is large, and the loungers are spread out nicely. There are some stairways carved into the cliffs that lead to down to tide pools and smaller deck areas. Jumping into the ocean is great fun. There are plenty of safe spots to jump into the ocean, raning in height from 5 to maybe 15 feet. The water isn't too cold, and it's very clear.
The bar provides a great view and shade to enjoy drinks in the day and also at night. The prices aren't bad. We didn't use the all-inclusive plan, and unless you're going to drink 10 wells drinks per day and eat at the buffet for all of the meals, it isn't worth it in my opinion.
Everything about Samsara was superb with the exception of the breakfast buffet. The food was good, but was mostly American fare. You can walk 3 minutes down and acorrs the road to Chances restaurant for a Jamaican breakfast for a better price.
