This is the best place we have stayed in our 20 years of visiting Costa Rica, The hosts are most accommodating, the views great and facilities met our needs perfectly. The rooftop lounge was the bonus spot for relaxing and enjoying the views. The building design and furnishings were well done for comfort of guests. We only wished that we...

Awesome condo and location. Located just north of Samara. About a 10 min walk either on the beach or road to town. The location is quiet yet gives you easy access to Samara. Floor to ceiling windows give you a great view of the beach. Catherine, the manager and Randall the watchman are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in...

This was my second stay at the Alta Vista and I will hopefully be back for many more and sooner than later. My first review is here somewhere or it got lost somehow but in any event, this is really the best of both worlds. You have a modern condo with all the comforts and a fabulous view in a...

We stayed in the Begonia condo for a month. The apartment was clean, modern and suited all our needs. Close to the beach and the little village. We travelled with our two 16 month old twins and everything worked great.

This place is ideal for its comfort, convenience, and beauty. I could not resist waking up at dawn so that I could stroll down to the beach (even before coffee!) to take photographs and enjoy watching the early risers and fishermen quietly beginning their days as the sun came up. After local fresh fruit for breakfast back at the condo,...

We spent a week at Alta Vista in Begonia (the second Level). The building is steps away form the beach and just a few minutes from town. Howler monkeys are a daily sight in the trees surrounding the condos. Geckos, Iguanas and other animals hang around the condos gardens. Randal, the groundskeeper does a great job of keeping the place...

We stayed in Playa Samara at Alta Vista Condominium in april of 2013. The weather was incredible with not one drop of rain. When we arrived after driving through town and scoping out other accommodations in the area, we were thrilled to be staying at Alta Vista Condos. We were greeted by a family of monkeys that were jumping from...

Our group of four adults stayed in the first floor unit of this condominium building, Alta Amapola in February of 2013. We had a wonderful time, Samara is the best and this condo is within walking distance to the town. The beach is a quick 5 minute walk from the front door! We spent a lot of time walking the...
