This hotel is at the end of an unlit dirt track. If the rating was just based on the breakfast it would be zero. Rooms and bathrooms are of a reasonable size and cleanish....I do not think it was good value for money. I would not stay here again..

We stayed here for 3 nights. It is well layed out with the rooms arranged in a L-shaped pattern with a good sized terrace. The rooms were adequate and clean with 2 double beds. There was a sheet and thin blanket which was fine. Just keep the air conditioning at a suitable temperature. There is a safe in the room... More

We went to Hacienda del Mar for dinner. We liked it so much that we returned and returned again ! There is not a huge menu, but every thing is fresh. The hole fish was delicious !

Discovered this charming hotel by accident and ended up staying 5 nights here. The hotel changed ownership very recently. We were welcomed very warmly by Klaus and Mere, a charming couple who were keen to ensure that everything was perfect for us, which it was. In fact all the staff were charming, gracious and helpful. First of all the swimming... More

We came here with a hungry stomach after our visit to La Selva Wildlife Refuge located in the same street. We had a look at the menu and were surprised how cheap the fresh juices were. We decided to have the casado dish and had some fresh juices while waiting for the casado to be ready. The beef that came... More

It's difficult to say bad things about a family run Tico hotel as I respect the fact that locals own and run the place. However as a traveler I expect a couple of things. If you say complimentary breakfast is available from 7am to 9am and there is NO coffee available anywhere in the area and the staff comes in... More

We stayed here during our last two nights in Costa Rica. The hotel was clean and the staff was awesome. Karla and Walter went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of. The hotel was perfect for our group and we would not hesitate to stay here another time. Thank you again, Karla and Walter,... More

During the week in the off season, this hotel is very quiet. The pool is very large and helps make a great at night for relaxing after a long week of adventures and sipping wine.

Great place and nice people. Samara is quite busy and the Hacienda is a quiet place to recover from surfing, hiking and horse riding. You can sit in the pool and listen to the Monkeys. The room was very clean and the beds confortable. Great deal!!!

Some people shouldn't be in the hospitality business. It's one thing to build a lovely space in a beautiful part of the world. It is a clean space with a wonderful pool. Otherwise, this hotel holds no charm. We stayed two nights on a recent beach trip. There was absolutely nothing hospitable or welcoming from the staff. Nothing cozy about... More
