The owners were relaxed and helpful. They gave us plenty of privacy but were available when we needed them. Rooms were huge with cooking facilities and incredible views. Location is perfect-only a few minute walk from town and the beach. We met interesting and very friendly people from Europe, Canada and the US. We enjoyed the pool and amazing walks...

My husband and I have been to Samara several times and love this place. We loved it so much, we decided to get married here in April. If you are looking for a location that hosts 5 star hotels and luxury accommodations, Samara is probably not the place to go. Samara is more laid back and offers mostly casual accommodations....

I fully agree with modena1964 and his review. The panorama from the balcony is glorious, but the place is not terribly well kept. Lots of bad weeds in the garden, parts of the furniture seem to be waiting for the bulky waste removal. The pictures on their website are very, very flattering!

The Mirador is an unpretentious family run hotel just up the hill from the center of Samara. All the rooms have a stunning view of the town just below, the ocean and the setting sun.

This was an incredible experience. The Mirdaor is a charming and well maintained hotel that is like a home away from home. The views from the balconies are spectacular, Samara beach is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen and the service at the hotel is wonderful.

My husband and I just returned from a two week stay at Hotel Mirador. We stayed in a large apartment with a beautiful view. The owner Max was helpful even before we arrived.

The hotel is located on a hill just on the edge of the small town, only a short walk from the beach. Being on the hill is a real bonus; the views are stunning and gives a refreshing breeze. We were lucky to be able to observe howler monkeys, iguanas, humming birds and more from the balcony of our hotel...

“All of the rooms overlook the ocean, might get a slightly better view from the top floor of the apartments, but it was nice to be on the ground floor because we could walk down to the pool from our room.”
  • Deck off our room, could walk down to the pool from here.
