“The beauty of nature sounds!”
Reviewed February 19, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Lovely uncrowded beach where one can sit in front of the ocean and spend the day under umbrellas or shady trees, drinking coffee or beer, reading a book while enjoying breakfast, lunch or dinner. Restaurants are open all day, located at the beach and the food was great.
Roberto, the proprietor of Kalimba Villas was most friendly and attentive to the needs of his customers, I must say also that he is a remarkable chef so we were able to have first class Italian food.
We stayed at one of his 4 bedroom houses, up on a hill overlooking the forest and five minutes by car from the little town. The house was beautifully designed, of Spanish and Italian style, perfectly equipped, with a blue Italian tile pool just in front of the patio entrance.
One of the best beach spots I've visited. We will be back next year.

“Paradise found!”
Reviewed February 18, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Villas Kalimbas offers an exceptional value in one of the most beautiful locations in Costa Rica. Roberto and his staff provide a clean and secure environment to enjoy all that Samara has to offer. In this our second year staying at the Villas Kalimbas, we have developed meaningful friendships with locals there. People are eager to please whether in a restaurant or simply renting lounge chairs on the beach. Filled with Italians, Samara offers exceptional cuisine including Roberto's outstanding meals that he prepares on occasion in an open air setting by the pool. We talked friends and family into joining us this year and every single person wants to return. Since we were entertaining guests we rented "Sandy" and loved having our own private pool with beautiful views of the spectacular sunsets. Both the casitas in the town and our house are impeccably clean with maid and pool service every day. Our linens were changed every two or three days. The properties are comfortable providing ensuite bathrooms at both the casitas and the house we rented. This year's three-week stay still seemed inadequate. We are already booked for 2019.

“Great experience”
Reviewed May 26, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I'm used to staying in all inclusive resorts however the change that villa sandy provides is par none. You have the luxury of a private villa with two protective gates while only being minutes from a cute town. A cleaning service is provided as well as the comfort of a kitchen for a quiet night in. Great experience, great house, great country! Will be back for sure

“We still are living in the peace, quiet and relaxation of the villa, the community and the activities. We especially lo”
Reviewed March 11, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The best activity was the canopy/jip line experience.

Next is the beach with body surfing or surfing and just relaxation

In shore fishing was not the best but, we are spoiled as we live in Key West

The quiet, the quiet with no phones or TVs or dysfunctional news was the best.

“Villa Bruga Never Disappoints”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was our fourth stay at Villa Bruga with our friends and it now feels like a second home. The location between two spectacular beaches (Playa Samara and Playa Carillo) is perfect. The villa is scrupulously clean, very well appointed and secure. Mario takes excellent care of the pool and the grounds. Any problems (and they have been rare) are dealt with promptly. For example, a malfunctioning air conditioner received immediate attention.
The daily cleaning service was perfect for our needs. We enjoy cooking for ourselves and even cleaning up. But the overall maintenance provided by Marcela made us feel that we were on holiday.
Roberto, who oversees the property and runs Villas Kalimba in Samara, occasionally prepares not-to-be-missed dinners for his guests. A great break from our own culinary efforts! Already, we're planning our return.

“Villa Bruga”
Reviewed September 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My boyfriend and I have spent two weeks in this marvelous house. It's located only 2 minutes by car from Samara and the beach.The house is fully furnished and clean every day by the staff. There is a beautiful swimming pool in the garden, it's perfect if you want some relax or recreate a romantic atmosphere in the evening. This place is very quite and surrounded by nature. The staff is very nice and Roberto and Mara are very kind and happy to help you... if you need some advice about something to do or places to see just ask them. Those two weeks have been really fantastic!Pura Vida!

Villa Sandy was secluded and comfortable. Roberto, the owner, cooked dinner at Villa Kalimba one night for us, complete with wine and Sambuca! Very enjoyable time in Samara.
Thanks Roberto
