We stayed in Samara for 5 nights during our holiday in Costa Rica and we had a fantastic time. I would say that the friendliness of the hotel staff really made our stay enjoyable in Samara.
Granted, the hotel is not on the beach, it isn't far either. If you have a car, it's a very quick car ride and you can find parking absolutely anywhere, once in town. From hotel door, to lying down on your towel on the beach, maximum 10 minutes. You can also walk if you like and that might be more like 20 minutes. Samara is a wonderful small town where you can walk around, go for runs, plenty of souvenir shops, restaurants, convenience stores.
What was nice about the Hotel was that once we had had a lot of beach time, we could rest at the hotel and then spend more time in the pool to finish the day. Travelling with our 8 month old son, this was crucial to enjoying our time in the sun. Plus, the beach has no shade, so staying by the pool can be more useful at times.
We dined here every night because we could put our son to bed and then be in close proximity, while enjoying a nice meal. The meals were delicious! Very copious and succulent meat. We looked forward to seeing the menu daily. Now while we ate here every night because it was just more convenient for us, whether you stay here or not, do plan to eat at their restaurant at least once!!!
The owners are absolutely delightful and they have a wonderful team. I felt they made an effort to make everyone's stay pleasant and they do take the time to talk to you. Of course after 5 days we had plenty of time, and it was appreciated.
The rooms were comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. They are compact, but we still felt we had room to move around and let all our luggage explode around. Keep in mind, we also had a pack n play in there and we didn't feel that it was too small.
Value for money, we were very happy with this choice and would recommend it to anyone who is OK with staying just a few minutes away from the beach for a nice experience.
