After 2 weeks of touring through Costa Rica we booked El Gaucho a private villa , belonging to the hotel Villas Kalimba. As we were 2 couples we had plenty of space inside as it could take up to 6 people. A nice spacious kitchen with a large fridge and each bedroom had its own bathroom.
The terrace and the private pool were all we needed. Bakery, small supermarket,laundry,...were all within walking distance. A somewhat larger supermarket (Pali) was only two minutes away by car .The only disadvantage of our lovely villa was that it was just next to the main street of Samara and thus very noisy until 5pm when the noise of buses, cars and motorbikes faded away.The beach was at the end of this main street . it was more a beach for backpackers cause one couldn't find a nice cosy little restaurant to enjoy the sunset. The beach and the surrounding islands was lovely but invaded by(stray ?) dogs NOT on the leach and pooping all over this nice sandy beach.
The 2 dinners we had at Roberto's (owner of the villas Kalimba) were relaxing and delicious . A good service overall was what we got .
