Thank-you TripAdvisor for having such high recommendations for El Pequeno Gecko Verde in Samara, Costa Rica. It was through these that we came to stay at this bit of paradise for 4 nights. The entire experience was lovely and so relaxing, from snoozing in the hammock on our own terrace to enjoying the delicious breakfasts to swimming in the pool while admiring the absolutely beautiful surroundings to hiking down to the private beach behind the hotel. The little beach town of Samara is an easy 2 km walk through mostly paved roads and there are plenty of little restaurants and market-type shops along the way and in town. The beaches are spectacular, the animals and vegetation interesting and exotic and the people are genuinely friendly and happy. Our cabana was comfortable with air conditioning, a nice little kitchen for preparing snacks and an incredible outdoor shower. Nathalie and Pierre, the proprietors of El Pequeno Gecko Verde are warm and wonderful hosts and I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat.
