Lodge Ranas is located in a wonderful location, as others have mentioned. We watched monkeys playing outside our room which had wonderful views of the Pacific. We did actually walk into town and we rented an electric golf cart to get around town although it...More

Lodge Las Ranas is located in the hills about the fab beach at Playa Samara. So you need a car to get to the town, but we loved both the quiet and the cool breezes up there. I think all the rooms overlook the town...More

We will certainly be back! Lodge Las Ranas is a quiet retreat only moments from the beach. Our room overlooked the treeline where we saw monkeys playing and iguanas sunning themselves. The staff was amazing--super nice and helpful. I was sick on one of the...More

From reading other reviews, there were some aspects I worried about (the hill, the beds, the water, long walk into town). I'm so very glad that we decided on this hotel, for so many reasons. First off, I can't decide if it's the people, the...More

As the previous person answered, taxis are realitvely easy to find for about $4 one way from the hotel to the beach. We can arrange shuttles for you to airports and other towns. Rental vehicles are the most common form of... More

Hi, I’m looking at booking a room at your hotel and had a few questions (check in 4/28 check out 05/02) • Do you have any rooms that come with a hammock? • Are there any ocean, jungle, or beach views from the rooms? • Is wifi included? Is there a computer available for use? • Are there bars, restaurants, and nightlife in walking distance? • Do the rooms have a balcony, terrace, patio, or private outdoor space? • What are the closest beaches and are any of them in walking distance? If not can they be accessed by a bike (and if so what is the daily cost of one - 2 people). Would a vehicle be recommended/needed to get to the beach? • Do the rooms have air conditioning? • Are there any shared amenities or are they are private? (ie private bathroom/shower, private outdoor space,…) • Is breakfast and/or lunch included?

Was just there. No on the hammock. No on 'walking distance' but that means you don't have the loud noise of town--Las Ranas is high atop a hill with stunning beach views from some rooms, all have balconies. Rooms are... More

It's a fifteen minute walk along quiet roads/tracks. Another 5 mins along the beach to the centre of Sámara. The lodge is up a very steep drive. We have just spent 6 days there and walked some of the time and used taxis... More
