The hotel is located just 5 mins away walking to the beach and is in the main street with many restaurants and shops nearby. Room was clean and have two swimming pools. Breakfast included was ok, bread, eggs, something basic.

Lovely little hotel near the beach. Sanctuary from the heat with good aircon and lovely balcony overlooking the pool and wildlife in the trees. Saw monkeys ,resident woodpecker and lots of other birds. Breakfast basic but fresh and had very nice traditional dinner there on last night which was lovely. Definitely a good place to stay

The hotel is small and located on a busy street. There is limited parking right across the street. The room was clean There is an Italian restaurant on the same property. Breakfast was included in the price of the room. The food was okay. The wait staff could have been more attentive. Would stay there again.

The hotel is located on the main street in the small village Samara. We stayed two nights in a double room facing a small pool which meant that street noice was not an issue. The room has both ac and fan. Good wifi and breakfast especially the Tico version where you can substitute bread with fruit. Pool towels are one...

We stayed here for one night (around $80 USD for a triple room, breakfast included). Breakfast was good and the room a decent size but the hotel wasn't as clean as I would have liked and we had ants in our room, even on the beds. The bathroom is very basic and outdated but for the price, it was okay.

The perfect solution for visiting Samara and for tasting its atmosphere. Nice rooms, well equipped, two swimming pools available and a good restaurant for a drink or for having Italian food. The service is good and it is centrally located, very close to the beach and the other restaurants

I stayed here for 5 nights. This place is simple but everything you need. Super clean, friendly staff and superb location (few minute walk to Playa Samara and tons of restaurants all around). All the rooms have a little patio area with 2 chairs that lead out to a pool (the pools were always extremely clean and never crowded!). The...

This hotel is up the street a few blocks from the beach but a very short walk will get you there. It has a nice vibe to it and rooms are plain but spacious and nice and cool to escape the heat. The pool was well kept and staff very accommodating. The bus is across the street so very convenient....
