I was there last month with my two sons. Is fantastic, guests are as at home. Owners are very kind and helpfull. Mrs. Giorgia is the perfect " manager " for am hotel. The place is quite and safety. Beaches are at walking distance. Playa Carrillo for me is the place to stay all the day. Playa Samara also, it depence on you. Do hot esitate go and take a look. Bye, bye

What a beautiful hotel this is! We were one of the first guests to stay here so everything was new, worked perfectly and was so wonderfully relaxing. The owners have really done a great job. Our room was a double on the second floor. We had a lovely balcony that overlooked the "jungle" in front of us and we even got to see a family of monkeys up close.

Even though the hotel is just a few minutes walking distance from the beach, we ended up spending a lot of time just hanging around the gorgeous pool which has a fantastic deck where you can lounge in the sun or under an umbrella and even eat lunch there. The daily breakfast buffet was a great start on the day and we found the staff to be very nice.

We have travelled quite a bit since our retirement a few years ago and would definately recommend this little hotel to anyone.

Gary and C.L.

Room Tip: It's a new place and looked like all the rooms would be fine.

We spent our holidays in Motelaguna Boutique Hotel.An elegant and confortable new hotel with 15 well equipped rooms and a swimming pool where we had a great relaxing time.Giorgia and Gianmario are very friendly and polite owners.They pay attention to all clients providing an excellent breakfast and always available at all their requests.About location,it's very close to Samara beach and to one of the most beautiful beach of pacific coast "Playa Carrillo" which is reachable walking in few minutes.By the owners it is possible to book some important excursions.Not less important the nature around the hotel:you wake up in the morning with birds and monkeys sounds.We very reccomend it for your holidays in Costa Rica.

I am sitting at the airport in San Jose reminising the past two weeks. since leaving the U.S.
I stayed at Montelaguna Boutique Hotel on the pacific side off Costa Rica. A non pretentious comfortable new hotel in a little town called Samara.
Bike riding down to Carrillo beach complete with picnic prepared for by the hotel was delightful!
Early morning / evening dips in the pool, such a release from the days activities.
breakfast "al fresco" was a wonderful way to start the day.
A few evenings a week you can enjoy a glass of wine and a dish of home made pasta made from scratch by the Italian owners, Giorgia and Gianmario,Delicious!!!
...again "al fresco" such a simple joy!.
I will certainly return to this little gem on my next visit to Costa Rica.
Straw hats highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have king sized beds and a light airy feeling complete with ceiling fans and are air conditioned.

In addition to being within walking distance to two beaches, we liked the clean, bright rooms with comfortable new beds and linens. Delicious meals served at shaded outdoor tables were very enjoyable and saved time and money as compared to restaurants in Samara and Carillo. The café by the pool was certainly handy for a quick tasty bite. Families with children will be glad to know that the owners are raising three children. Montelaguna Boutique Hotel stacks up very well compared to hotels in other tropical locales we have visited.

Room Tip: Second floor suites have a lovely view of the pool, patio and tropical garden.
