Just returned from a great trip to Costa Rica. The Hotel Fenix was awesome. Right on the beach with hammocks, swaying palm trees, and ocean breezes. Phyllis, the owner, was really helpful and gave us great tips on a local waterfall and tidepool adventures. Samara Beach is a great family beach, Our kids ages 11 and 13 spent hours in the water boogie boarding (hotel has boogie boards and sand toys). We also went horseback riding on the beach. The hotel is quiet and a short walk along the beach to town, but away from the crowds, so it's really peaceful. We enjoyed the iguanas and monkeys nearby in the trees. We enjoyed the restaurant Pizza and Pasat a Go-Go in town and I had the best fresh red snapper I've ever had. We also enjoyed the on the beach restaurants in town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Six time winner of the Traveller's Choice Award for 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2009! Thank you to all of our wonderful guests. We are a small (6 rooms), beach-front hotel just footsteps from the ocean. Our rooms are clean, colorful and comfortable. We are NOT an all-inclusive, luxury resort. More like your place at the beach, but with someone else doing the daily cleaning, changing the linens and yard work. The rooms are in a semi-circle and face the pool, gardens and the ocean. (see photos) Great way to meet new people and exchange information and stories. We have been here 17 years managing our "little piece of paradise". Our front yard is sand with ranchos and palm trees for plenty of shade. Hammocks, sunbeds, small pool, gardens and BBQ complete our front yard. All of our rooms have fully equipped kitchens with separate bedroom. The deluxe room has AC & widescreen TV. Standard rooms have upper and lower screened windows and two ceiling fans. Our neighborhood has a small grocery store & fish market, along with local deliveries of fruits and fresh ceviche. An enjoyable 15 minute walk to Samara Central. Most of our guests return or have been recommend by friends. Thank you for considering our special place by the sea. ... more less
