We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in January and had a great time. We liked the beach of Samara very much, it's good for swimming and very tranquil. The Lodge is located 1 km from the town, but you don't want to walk because it's a dusty road. There is a good (Eco Friendly) solution: rent a bike (even if you're not Dutch :-) ) We had 'beach-cruisers' but you can also rent mountain bikes. I think we payed 25 dollars for 2 bikes, 3 days. That's not much.
Clemence, the owner of the Lodge knows where you can rent them. Because she knows everything you need. She knows the meaning of hospitality.and helped us very much with her recommendations. Helped us booked a tour (cheaper than the one they sell down town), helped us look for a next hotel and gave us some good restaurant suggestions. But if you don't want to eat out, you just can stay at the Lodge because they have the best Chef in town. Even if you decide not to stay here, you have to check out the food at night. (Menu changing daily) The price is a little higher then 'typical food' but for 10 euro's (for a main course) you have excellent food! It's worth it.
The rooms are a little bit simple. We had a spacious room but they could have done a little bit more with it. The air-conditioning wasn't working as strong as we experienced in other places we've stayed, but we could have change rooms if we wanted to. Maybe a tip for the future, but for now: we enjoyed our stay very much, the staff is very friendly and helpful.
ps: best Italian in Samara is El Dorado, thinnest pizza crust I have ever tasted. And you should check out Shake's Joe for an afternoon drink or snack.
