Our family just returned from Costa Rica. While in Samara we stayed at the Montelaguna. It is a lovely condo complex a few hundred yards from both Carillo and Samara beaches. The two bedroom condo was spotless and well maintained. The setting is lovely, and the pool very nice and well maintained. Georgia was always available, and very helpful. The Montelaguna is a short ($6) cab ride from town, but we used the restaurant at The Hideaway across the street when we wanted an easy meal.
