My family and I went to Hotel Mirador de Samara during New Years. If you visit Hotel Mirador it will be the worst experience you'll have in Costa Rica! The grounds were concrete with a thick coat of dust, the sheets were tattered and were a mouse grey color with a musty scent. It had a great location, just blocks away from the beach but had endless swarms of Mosquitos. The view was also great but had two telephone poles in the way. Our shower wouldn't run and the floor was caved in under the faucet. The fridge had rotten food left in it from the most recent stay. We had to keep our kids off of the deck because it was a straight drop to the streets. The white pillars on the deck were brown from the thousands of of ants crawling up and down. The pool was about four feet deep, but it was so dirty we couldn't see the bottom. The last thing is the security is terrible! Some rooms don't even have a single lock on their door! We fled Hotel Mirador right away and decided to stay at "Leyanda" the clean, good quality hotel. I strongly recommend NOT staying at Hotel Mirador de Samara.

The beach is just a five-minute walk away. The building is constructed in stricty north – South position which allows the ocean breeze entering into the rooms during daytime and atnight bringing cool breeze from the mountains behind. ... more less
