My chief complaint is being shocked by electricity from the shower head. There was an electrical current running through the water coming from the shower head. It would not get hot. A worker from the hotel tried to tell me it was not broken; however I had gone to the room next to me (friends') and their shower worked just...

We came here after having read the reviews and it is indeed as good, or even better as expected. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and provided us with a lot of useful information. The room was simple, spacious and clean. And we really enjoyed the pool. (If you're fed up with the sea water). It is a 10m...

Had a wonderful experience at Hotel Samara Pacific Lodge. The room was comfortable and clean. The horses and the farm behind our room were magnificent to see. The monkeys hanging around the hotel were quite a sight. The wifi worked well. The swimming pool was refreshing and clean. The service was excellent. Breakfast was delicious. Decent walking distance to the...

The hotel is nice, the staff is friendly, but the rooms are a bit old, although reasonably well maintained. The wifi wasn't working properly and the farm behind the hotel makes a lot of noise in the morning. The pool is great and the location too.

Experience: My stay was short, only 2 nights but I got a sense that this can be a great hotel to visit again in the future. My experience was very good, the staff is simply incredible (French-owned I believe) and a plus for me, was the location. Away from downtown Samara which can be loud at nights. Still, a 3-5min...

We had a really great time! Two of my friends and I are all college students on a budget that wanted a nice place to stay for the weekend, and this was a reasonably priced place. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel at all. Very friendly staff, extremely clean rooms and pool area and the breakfast was...

This was the cheapest hotel we stayed at on our trip, but we enjoyed our stay. My family got two rooms at this hotel since it was so cheap. The WiFi was stronger than we had in most hotels in Costa Rica. It was nice to relax by the pool. Our rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly. The...

My daughter (then 12) and I stayed here last year and absolutely loved it. Loved the salt water pool, the restaurant with a different menu each night and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The owners were also very friendly and on top of things. One afternoon the woman owner motion for me to follow her to the...

This hotel is held by a French couple who are both charming, with good taste, and ruthless organizers. The result is an oasis of cleanliness, peace, calm and good food, tucked among trees and fields just one km from downtown Playa Samara. Good WiFi coverage.

“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!”
