Bambula Samara
Reviewed December 16, 2009

We stayed there a year ago, but we still remember! Pierre is great and his place is beautiful. He picked us (backpackers) up from the street - we searched a place to sleep and it was dark already - we went with him at once because he is a guy to trust. The Bambula is a very clean hotel to be and have fun with other guests and of course with Pierre. And he always helps with travelling tips. We love him!!!

Beautiful location, very close to the beach, rooms were very clean and each one had it's own bathroom and shower! Pierre (the owner) was amazingly accomodating and friendly and I would DEFINITELY stay there again and recommend it to others!!

We stayed here with friends in August 2009 and had a blast . Pierre is a great host - he helped set up activities for us and had lots of great recommendations. It was great to come back to hang out by the pool every afternoon. We can't wait to go back to Samara. It's a wondeful little town - very laid back, but with enough restaurants and activities to keep us busy.

Bambula is the perfect accommodations for solo, group, family vacation or romantic getaway. Conveniently located to everything this costal community has to offer. Bambula has two one bedroom casitas and a main house, which can be rented by floor. Each floor has a full kitchen, bath, bedroom, AC, internet. All guests have access to pool, hammock and multiple seating areas for socializing within your group and other guests. I highly recommend this property. Bambula's owner, Pierre, is the perfect host recommending restaurants and arranging activities for you and your travel companions. Playa Samara activities include Canopy tour (Wingnuts), sport fishing, surfing, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, diving, horseback rides on the beach and restaurants/bars are plentiful. costaricasamara.com.
