Hotel Entre Dos Aguas
Ranked #6 of 32 Playa Samara B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Charming and relaxing spot, near beautiful Playa Sámara. But the hotel was so lovely--grounds, swimming pool, hammocks, kitchen--that we hung out here a lot. Small enough to enable easy conversation with the other guests, Entre Dos Aguas was the perfect spot for relaxation.

My girlfriend and I arrived at Entre Dos Aguas after a particularly stressful couple days in Tamarindo. When we were dropped off, the shuttle driver said we found the best spot in town, and we could not agree more. This place immediately put us at ease and we loved everything about the property – from the pool to the communal kitchen to the hammocks/lounge/reading area, and of course the room we stayed in. Cecille (sp?) at the front desk was incredibly genuine, friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

Our room (the 'large' option) was more than spacious with nice lighting, fans above each bed, and a really neat stone-tiled bathroom and shower. It's worth mentioning that the hot water here was consistently available, a welcome luxury that is often hard to come by throughout Costa Rica. I also particularly enjoyed the incense and candles provided. It's the little things.

The hotel is close enough to town to be convenient but far enough away to feel quiet and tucked away. The beach is just 10 minutes down the hill and 'downtown' Samara takes 5 minutes or less.

All in all, this place is wonderful and our experience here was a definite trip highlight. We wish we would have skipped out on Tamarindo and extended our stay here for two more nights! We were really sad to go so quickly.

We stayed at Entre Dos Aguas for two nights. (We wanted to extend to another day but it was fully booked....). Our room is very clean. We also liked to hang out in the common area, which has four hammocks and few nice chair. There are also books and magazines (like New Yorkers, Times...) to read. It is also very close to the beach and to many restaurants. We also like the idea that there is a small/shared kitchen.

I was reluctant to write this review because who wants to let everybody in on the secret that is Entre Dos Aguas! You walk in through the gate and there is lush tropical gardens everywhere, walk past the pool and the hotel is tucked in behind. The rooms are large, immaculate and cleaned every day. In the common area we met great people from all over the world. There is a small kitchen with two fridges to use and coffee all day.For those who think they want the beach to stay at, think again. Although only 300 metres or so to the beach, Entre is cooler, quieter, and way better value. Brandon and Lilah have a great place and were very helpful, a big shout out to Cecille who was fantastic!

Room Tip: Splurge on the large end rooms if staying for a while. Or the killer apartment!

Back for our second time, we once again enjoyed this lovely place. Our group of three all appreciated the basic but cute rooms and relaxing patio. We have slept better here than almost anywhere else. It is very easy to wind down, hang out at the pool, wander the cute little town, and veg out on the beach, which is within easy walking distance. We also appreciated the help finding and booking activities. We highly recommend it for a relaxing vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the rock shower room.

No A/C and because of that you have this high humidity mold smell - bathroom had a heavy smell. we had 3 rooms all had that problem . one of the rooms was the top floor of the house that did not have as much of a smell because it had high ceiling. everything else was great!
DOG was super nice and it did not smell at all. was actually very respectful and would not go into the rooms even with the door open.

Cecilia is your hostess and very sweet and welcoming. A great value and lovely property, the rooms and environs are an excellent value for the price. This is a small hotel, I was lucky to get a room without booking ahead, a low-season luxury.

All the pros you read are true. Only one con for me and that is the really musty/mouldy odour in Room 5 that was very overpowering. That being said, I'd rather smell that (an unfortunate side effect of the climate) than any overpowering/unhealthy chemical products to mask it.

You cannot do better for the price in gorgeous, laid-back Samara.
