We stayed at Alta Vista for part of our Honeymoon in March 2013. What a wonderful place. Samara is a great little beach town with friendly locals and beautiful beaches. We can't say a bad word about Alta Vista Condos. We stayed in the 1 bedroom Catalina and it had an amazing view. Randall (caretaker) was extremely friendly and the...

We stayed 18 days in the 1st floor unit (Amapola), and really enjoyed it. Lovely view of the beach and the sunrise, and you can be in the surf in 5 minutes. Playa Samara is a lovely, long beach, never crowded, and the condo is located at the end where the locals tend to play with their families. It takes...

We stayed in Begonia for a week in August. There were 2 couples and the place was perfect for us! We loved sitting out on the balcony in the morning with our coffee watching the morning activities. We also enjoyed watching the monkeys daily trip behind the house. Randal was fantastic and Beatriz helped us with some local information. The...

We stayed in the Begonia unit for 4 nights, and were very pleased with the accomodations. The home is clean, well appointed, and quiet. On 95 degree days, the air conditioning kept us cool, even with the large picture window walls that look out over the horse pasture and beach. The balcony and 3rd floor decks were an added bonus,...
