We just returned from a weeklong stay at the Samsara. It was a Great place to stay! All the staff are extremely friendly and pleasant and we quickly made friends with most of them. We met another traveler at the bar who was from our home city. Upon their checkout, they left a sweater behind in the room. The Staff at the Samsara were nice enough to contact us and ask if we would bring this sweater home with us to reunite with the other traveler. Most hotels and resorts would not do that for you! Especially internationally! We did not go the all inclusive option, but the prices at the bar and restaurant were pretty fair. They do not have an ice machine on site so if you plan on buying beer at the convenience store down the road, make sure to buy some ice too. The Samsara has a wonderful view and scenic cliffs that we were able to relax upon for hours. They are making improvements to the resort at this time, so please do not be discouraged by some of the negative reviews. There are places within walking distance so you don't always need a cab. Walking around on the cliff road at night could be tricky, as there aren't really any sidewalks up there, and not much light. The cars go pretty fast on the cliff road, so be careful, especially at night. If you need to exchange money, I don't recommend doing it at the Samsara. There is a fee for money conversion and if you are exchanging a larger amount of money the fee will add up. Also, they may run out of money to as Currency Conversion is obviously not their main business, merely a convenience that they offer. If they tell you the nearest money exchange is in the town square, it's not. We were able to find one that was closer up on the cliff road there, about halfway between the Samsara and Rick's, Maybe a 30 minute walk or so. It's in a shop that rents out scooters. No conversion fee there. All in all the Samsara was a great place to stay if you are staying up on the cliffs. Also, don't forget their daily shuttle to Legends on the beach. Its runs at 10am daily and saves you from having to pay for a cab to get down to the beach.
