Kalimba villas exceeded our expectations. Nicely equipped, clean and the service was very good. Location was very good just meters from a quiet beautiful beach. Would stay again without hesitation.

The Villas Kalimba looked nice but were full. Roberto (the owner) suggested we might like to stay in the home he had built for his daughter (she had returned to Italy). "El Gaucho" was the most amazing place we have ever stayed. A magnificent home with its own Infinity pool and waterfall; three bedrooms and two baths; two patios; etc. The cost was $230/night. El Gaucho was about a 5 minute walk from the beach. Highly recommended.

Roberto runs a very nice place here.

We had a two bed, two bathroom villa. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable

Even though the villa was beside the pool, the planting in front of the terrace was dense enogh to provide privacy and light enough that we could still keep an eye on poll while the kids swam. The pool was very nice and the staff gave it a very good cleaning each morning.

We had a very nice breakfast the first morning and cooked for ourselves for the rest of our stay.

The location is very good, with a walkway to the beach just across the road and large shop just down the road.

Playa Samara is a beautiful town, I have traveled extensively through out Costa Rica, but Samara is deff. the best place i have ever vacationed. Villas Kalimbas is beautiful and the owner, Roberto is the most gracious host. He cooked my family elaborate 6 course italian dinners. Literally the best food i have ever tasted. We were there over christmas and he made a beautiful dinner, words cannot descride how great the food is there. The hotel is super clean and the staff is extremly friendly and helpful. I like traveling and seeing new places, but i would deff. go back, without a second thought. I cannot imagine having a better vacation.
