We stayed at Hotel Villa Samara for the first week of July 2016. We got an incredible price for the all inclusive bungalow package. We had a two bedroom villa, the second in from the beach, with 2 bathrooms, a spacious living/dining room and a lovely open concept kitchen. As a family of 4 this was ideal. Vacationing with teenagers,...

I was there from Dec 25/16 to Jan 1/16. The resort is nice, the rooms are nice, located on a nice beach (bring water shoes as there are some rocks in the water). Nice and quiet, not overrun with pushy, complaining tourists. Close to town. Paolo and his staff were nice and helpful. They went all out for a fun...

I just came back from this resort while vacationing with my two sons ( 21, and 20 Yo). I researched a trip that would allow for the perfect combination between all inclusive but would still provide enough freedom for these young men to enjoy themselves outside of the confines of a resort. This resort was PERFECT!! The staff were unbelievably...

Many issues with this property. It was dark and the hotel entrance is not well lit. My name wasn't on the manifest, so I had to wait to be allowed entrance at the guard shack. Much construction here, so it is easy to get turned around. Parked at the lobby front as directed. The receptionist was concerned a tourist bus...

We would like to express our appreciation to Mr Pablo Bolanos who spend extra time and effort to resolve our accommodation problems. Thank you Pablo for your efforts. We enjoyed the beach front views, walks to downtown area along the beach and the good food. The Lee Family.

First time to Costa Rica...was ready for some discomforts but this was just a little to much. The villas are 2+ hours from the airport, depends how long you get stopped by road construction ( make sure to ask the driver to stop for bathroom stop or beer stop ) don't be shy it is a long drive. After the...

I stayed here Dec 9th, 10th, and 11th of 2016. This hotel was tranquil, had a nice common area and beach. My sister and I would have really liked it except for three things. 1.) We stayed here at the end of a package tour. To eat lunch and dinner here, we would have had to pay an additional $65...

I visited Costa Rica with my partner to celebrate her "significant" birthday - one of the round-numbered ones. We took the Air Canada all-inclusive package for seven days at the very beginning of the dry season (November 25). It was lovely. The resort is fantastic. Although it is undergoing some significant renovations/ expansion, it was not disruptive. In fact, it...

The hotel is under renovations so when you first drive up it's not very appealing but once you are at reception all is good. Check in was ok but we were only with about 15 people so if a big bus load came in i can see it be very slow. I would of rated it good but had to...
