Small complex of villas, it's a bit old and shows it's age. The staff are friendly and service is good. It's a bit far from town and there is no nightlife at the resort.The beach is beautiful and the water is warm.

We visited Playa Samara for a week with friends. The resort needs some updating but was clean and the staff was amazing. Andrey and Dixie at the front desk were both very accommodating when we asked to have our room changed from pool side to something a little further away, and the change was completed the next morning. Food was...

If you looking for a very relaxing place for a holiday, this is your place. We spent 2 weeks here and enjoyed everyday. We stayed in the newer hotel part. It was extremely clean and the air conditioner worked great (it is needed). The food was good, the 1 Ala Carte menu did not change much in the 2 weeks...

We stayed for two weeks and I was a very skeptical about staying that long after reading the bad reviews. We had an enjoyable two week stay. Our luxury room was beautifully modern, very private, away from the noise of the construction site. All staff was very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff were wonderful. Food was good, especially...

I'm actually considering sueing Air Canada for having this dump as part of their destinations. There is heavy construction inside the property and heavy-duty remodeling of all villas and rooms (by the way, there are no TV´s or phones on most villas, or "luxury" rooms! Expect sledge hammers pounding next door as of 6 am every day. When you try...

Our group of four went for a week all inclusive and had a great time. They are constructing a new building and parking area on the resort but this did not effect our stay whatsoever. Not busy and quiet at night. We did a few tours with only the four of us with no extra charge and our dolphin tour...

My mom and I went here for a quiet getaway and we loved it!!! It was perfect. Not too busy, right on the beach, and a 25min walk along water to nearest town for shopping and dining. The pool was never too crowded and the overall mood was peaceful. There are lots of birds and lizards living on the resort...
