We can only highly recommend a stay in the Mirador Hotel. The hotel is located on a hill overlooking the rocky bay of Samara and offers a breathtaking view on this tropical landscape. The staff's friendly and familiar atmosphere makes you feel comfortable. Max, the Manager, is a pleasant and interesting character who arranges and guide - if required -... More

This is the most beautiful hotel in Samara. Hands Down! the views are unbelievable, the pool is spectacular, the service is friendly and familiar and the rooms are comfortable, clean, elegant and provide an enriching Costa Rican experience. Located up on the hill over looking the town, allowing for quiet nights but a minute walk into town and to the... More

We have been going to the Mirador every year ever since it opened. Over the years it has just gotten better and more enjoyable. In the first few years there, the village of Samara, had dirt roads, no pharmacy, no bank, no doctors, very few restaurants, but its main asset the beautiful beach and Max's Mirador were our draw to...

My husband and I stayed at the Mirador de Samara for 2 weeks. We were well taken care of before we even arrived. The view from the balcony and the heavenly breeze make for a wonderful stay, not to mention the fruit trees that line the property and the beautiful birds that they attract. The staff were very helpful and... More

Visitors From Canada I am writing to share our experience at the Mirador de Samara. It really offers something for everyone. From hotel style rooms to full suites with kitchen and separate bedrooms for families, it provides the amenities of a hotel with the atmosphere of a bed and breakfast. You can choose a suite and cook your own meals,... More

Where to begin... The "Skyroom" suite would've been bearable without the stomach-turning stench of sewage, and would've been okay if the towels and bedsheets weren't stained. Very limited view, but our room was at the end, maybe the other end had better views. By the way, the website advertises a restaurant, but in reality there is none, other than the... More

We just returned from an incredible two week vacation in Costa Rica. We were fortunate enough to be able to travel to many parts of the country including Samara. Although Samara is a beautiful Pacific surfing community our stay at the Mirador de Samara was extremely disappointing. Of the five hotels we stayed at in Costa Rica this hotel was... More

My traveling companion had stayed at the Mirador over 10 years ago and when it came time to plan our vacation this hotel was at the top of his list. I"m glad it was. As noted by others this hotel is on the north end of town, up on a hillside. It takes about 5 min to walk to the... More

“All of the rooms overlook the ocean, might get a slightly better view from the top floor of the apartments, but it was nice to be on the ground floor because we could walk down to the pool from our room.”
  • Deck off our room, could walk down to the pool from here.
