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....

Very impressed by the restaurant in every aspect! The dining room looked upscale but was in fact a very causal and welcoming atmosphere. Our server was absolutely great!! He was very helpful and had a great personality that made our evening quite fun. This was especially great considering the fact that we don't speak Spanish! Last but not least my...

This hotel was on a great street with an easy walk to the beach. Tour companies were next door and across the street making it easy to book dolphin watching tours or snorkeling expeditions. The breakfast was made to order, which was really nice after a week of buffets. The rooms were fine. They had AC but no blankets on...

Fine hotel, nice pool for cooling down when have been swimming in the warm ocean. Just in the middle of the main street close to the beach. Nice restaurant in front where you get your breakfast, best pizza I ever tasted! (For dinner)

This is a simple family place: small room with A/C, unaffiliated restaurant (separate tab) on ground floor that does however also serve the free breakfast. Free but slow wifi. 100 m to a supermarket (towards beach, right at first corner) and to beach. Don't expect anything fancy, but the staff was friendly and some speak English if you need it,...

Our first nights in CR were perfect as we settled into the quaint little beach town. The pool was nice, breakfast was wonderful and the staff were very kind. AC kept us comfy and bar service kept us smiling! You will get used to only having CNN (+Fox) unless you habla espanol. Many activities available and the drive from Liberia...
