Felt at home right away. Rooms are ok, but don't expect too much. But the pool area, the food and the personal service make this place a top holiday accommodation. If without car: rent a bike in town, as the lodge is a bit off map. Or just stay at the pool and sip your cocktail or milkshake away!

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in January and had a great time. We liked the beach of Samara very much, it's good for swimming and very tranquil. The Lodge is located 1 km from the town, but you don't want to walk because it's a dusty road. There is a good (Eco Friendly) solution: rent a bike...

We stayed at Samara Pacific Lodge for 5 nights and couldn't have been happier. It is located about 1 Km from town and the main beach. I would suggest that you rent a scooter or car if you do not like walking. We rented a scooter and it was very convenient. I prefer their more isolated location than being right...

Excellent road signs in the village to find the hotel located few...

What a wonderful place! The owners of the Samara Pacific Lodge are a young couple full of love and enthousiasm! The lodge is located 800m from the beach in the middle of the nature (a chance to see birds and monkeys and to enjoy a very quiet place). No need at all to take the car: the true "farniente"! The...

Samara Pacific Lodge is by far the best option, it offers great service, good accommodations. Although it is not in downtown, it is less than 5 minutes to good beach area and downtown. It is convenient for families as some of the rooms offer privacy for parents, rooms are well kept: clean and confortable, its price and the quality is...

It was my first trip to Costa Rica and I loved the Samara Pacific Lodge. If you like to be surrounded by gorgious nature in a quiet retreat near the ocean with warm weather, this is the place. The 10 minutes walk to the beach is a superb dirt road along a forest with monkeys hanging out in the trees,...
