My wife and I recently stayed one night at Hotel Sol Samara as we made our way from Tamarindo to Santa Teresa. In short, we found this hotel truly delightful and to be exactly what we had hoped for. From the start, Leo and the staff were wonderful, helpful and accommodating in everyway. Our second-floor room was clean and spacious,...

We stayed 3 nights in January 2012 and had a great room. It was located on the second floor, and was at the back end of the hotel above the pool (I think the room was called Pura Vida). The room had 2 doors that opened onto the deck/porch that had lounge chairs overlooking the grassy area. In addition you...

Hotel Sol Samara is located in between the town of Samara and Carillo beach. It is best to have a car if you stay here. It is located in a residential area. If you want to sleep bring earplugs. The dogs bark all night and the roosters start crowing at around 4 am. It is about one block walk to...

My wife and I spend 3 nights during New Year's eve weekend. While when we arrived we were concerned about the location as we were traveling with some friends that were staying on a hotel in downtown Samara, it turned out to be a blessing. We were able to sleep peacefully while our friends had to deal with the noise...

We went for a weekend in June with all the family (even grandpa). We had a great time, the hotel location is perfect to walk to the beach (100 feet probably). Rooms are pristine, service is the best. The breakfast and all meals we had were just over the top. Would recommend this hotel any day of the week.

I loved to stay at this wonderful hotel. The rooms are clean, the service perfect and always helpful when you need but at the same time not all over you and your plans. The beach is just a few minutes away and there is also the possibility to walk along the beach into town. I attended the language school in...

The room was functional, modern and always kept very clean. The outlook onto a communal lawn flanked by trees, with the beach being partly visible from my balcony, provided a feeling of space encouraging relaxation, whereas most other hotels I walked past at the northern part of the beach were quite compact, or opened to either a noisy street or...
