Beach in places was ok and other places not ok. There was no one there. No one selling anything, no one laying out and only a hand full of people walking on the beach. Not many boats were out sailing and the ones that were were fishing. There was a really nice hotel way down the beach and off the beaten path and it looked really nice.

Beautiful beach! Quiet and not tons of people. Find a cabana and order a drink to get some shade when needed. Nice waves.

A friend & I went to Samara on a whim during a road trip down the Guanacaste Pacific Coast in Costa Rica. Soooooo glad we went! The beach is incredible, clean, with very friendly people everywhere! Everything is within walking and/or biking distance. Decent prices for food and groceries. Will be back - to stay!

The beach was close to our hotel...it felt very safe, natural and the sunsets were amazing. Best time to visit was mid afternoon...

We thoroughly enjoyed the beach near the Hideaway Hotel, which was quiet and felt pretty private. The beach in town is also great, with a lot of restaurant options.
