We were two families, 4 adults and 4 kids and had a great time staying at the hotel. The hotel was off the beaten path just enough to be a fun adventure without being a hassle. The two beach areas nearby, a great pool and on-site restaurant made for a relaxing stay. We rented bikes for the whole crew, which...

Slightly off the beaten track but still convenient to Samara this small boutique hotel offered a most pleasurable stay - the staff - Pierrot - especially was a delightful help and Clemence - the owner - was too. Sebastian's meals at the restaurant were a welcome change from the typical Costa Rican menus found elsewhere...altogether an accommodation worth seeking out.

This hotel is a great little gem tucked away between two great beaches within walking distance and a short drive away from a few more. The rooms are small, but very clean and cozy. The staff here are all fantastic and extremely friendly. I would not hesitate to stay again.

Samara Pacific Lodge is a small hotel with lovely owners and staff. It has a great pool surrounded by tropical plants. Our room was large, easily big enough for us and our teenagers. Good value, even in the high season. It's a 20 minute walk to the middle of town, less than 15 minutes to the nearest beach, and there's...

We really enjoyed our stay here in December. The manager couldn't be any nicer and we all loved the breakfast. I heard dinner is quite amazing, but we didn't get the opportunity to try it during our visit. The property is in a great location- not far from the beach or town. Parking is a bit tricky as you have...

Great location. Short walk to beach or town. Great hosts who speak English, Spanish and French. We really loved this place. Close to town but not the noise and crowds. I recommend room 14. A corner room with a small patio and a view of the farm land behind the hotel. Pool area is beautiful and the pool was spotless...

We stayed 5 nights with our 2 kids. It is very well located with 3 access to the beach and close to Samara center. Clémence and her staff have been really nice and helpful. The place is nice and quiet with an excellent breakfast. Enjoy.

“We were in two different rooms - one at the back which was larger and a nicer bathroom but we also spent one night around the pool and think we preferred that location even though the room was much smaller - nice to walk out right to the pool area... grounds are nicer as well!”
