Breakfast is overpriced. First two mornings we were charged for coffee refills - not happy. Shared bathroom okay for 4 adults, not okay for 6 adults and a baby. Bathroom had water issues most days and often a sewage smell. Thomas was getting that fixed. The location to the playa and the distance to downtown was great, 50 mt walk... More

It started with a friendly chat over FB, Tommi the Owner is always at help with some kind advise if you need to know anything regarding a short holiday by the Pacific side of Costa Rica, or in my case, being German in Costa Rica. When I finally had the opportunity to visit, I did not find a first class... More

I found peace here. A guest house tucked away from the noise of Samara Centro. A place to experience la pura vida. My room was painted colorfully, and felt like home. So much so that I stayed for an extra FOUR WEEKS on top of the two I booked. Thomas took very good care of me - offering me food... More

Such a beautiful place nearby the beach. The rooms was clean and we had a very nice time! Everything you need is there, friendly owner, cozy pool to cool down, open air kitchen. Some people wrote that the water didn't work, sometimes that happens, because tha water pump quits working. In that case you just tell it the owner and... More

Now renamed the above with the same owner - yes it is out of the way (so much so that it is nowhere 20 minutes from the town), quiet and private but unfortunately this is where it goes downhill. Generally on a poor state of repair, water system on and off regularly and not good clean quality, communal kitchen smelly... More

Villa Kunterbunt was the perfect choice for my visit to Samara, I couldn't have picked a better place especially for the price!!! Travelling by myself I felt very safe and secure and the room and grounds are very beautiful, clean, organized and very welcoming. It also fully met my needs like wifi, private bath/shower, community kitchen and some local info.... More

We don´t think this is such a terrible place, but saying this is "dreamlike" or "best experience in CR" is just ridiculous. The problem of this place is that it is overrated. The beach is close and at night it is very quiet. It is a bit far away from the shops though. The place is half abandoned, dirty and... More

I have to mention that before travelling to Costa Rica I read very bad reviews about Cabinas Villa Kunterbunt but the experience I had was amazing. The place is surrounded by nature and the beach is just 5 mins away. I think they have a new management team, they are very friendly and even though there is a spare kitchen... More
