Lothar & Brigitte were amazing hosts. The grounds were delightful, the pool is surrounded by palms and friut trees, the rooms were very clean and located a short walk from the main street. Make sure you get a room with AC. Excellent value..which is why many of their guests return.

This is really a nice place to relax for a few days after travelling and sightseeing. The rooms are beautifully decorated and cleaned everyday. The breakfast is very good and served at the pool. Next door is a good local restaurant. Within a few minutes walking you are at the beach.

A well run clean, safe and well positioned hotel. Our kids loved the adjoining room and pool. The owners were extremely efficient, friendly and helpful. A great place to stay.

Beautiful setting! It's a small inn that was immaculate inside and out. Brigitte and Lothar are the two friendliest and most accomodating innkeepers we've ever stayed with. They were always happy to suggest and/or set up tours or services and restaurants and welcomed feedback from the guests. The location was also perfect, with a local cafe right next door and...

They really do care about their hotel and the guests. Our favorite place, Villas Pepitas was full our first night on this trip to Samara (4th visit in the last two...

My husband and I stayed here in February with our not-quite-2-year-old daughter, my sister, and my brother. The hotel is in a fantastic location close to town and the beach, with a jewel of a courtyard tucked away behind the gates. The rooms are rustic but spacious, comfortable, and well maintained. The pool is just right for a toddler and...

Our room was also perfect, comfortable bed, nice bathroom and nice decoration. I was really in love with this place. Owners are also very kind and helpful people that...

Brigitte and Lothar are fantastic hosts! I felt very comfortable and welcome at SPL. The rooms, pool and grounds are incredibly clean and neat. The coffee and breakfast were delicious and the opportunity to rent a bike for the day was an added bonus. I hope to go back sometime soon, so I can float in the pool for hours...
