We stayed 3 nights in March. The manager-ess was quite abusive to her staff. Very concerning. The rooms are small and were not cleaned properly. Location is good, a short walk from the village center. Food in restaurant was good Not convinced we would stay there again

We enjoyed one night at the Hotel Samara Inn. Large room, fun pool with fun people and good breakfast all at a reasonable price made it a good deal. A morning walk down a long road to the beach past a tree full of howler monkeys made the good deal very special.

We just came back from having a delicious dinner in the restaurant at the Samara Inn...it is an upscale boutique hotel specializing in seafood. I had the dorado with garlic, salad and veggies, and my husband had the jumbo shrimp. Delicious meal...including a glass of Chilean wine, our bill came to $38 all in. We will definitely come back.

We switched to this hotel after a bad hotel experience and we loved it! The rooms are very clean with comfy beds, the breakfast was very delicious. The pool was the best part, great for relaxing in all day if you want. The hotel is not in the center of town, but it's only about 7 min walk with a...

I should start by saying that we arrived here for La Fortuna and then montezuma where we had stayed in two fabulous resorts. We got here and I almost cried. I had been told by my travel agent not to expect much but this place was a hole. The sheets were see through, the washroom poorly cleaned, the towels thin...
