Perched on a hill and a long walk from the beach in Samara, the lodge was somewhat disappointing at first glance. Luckily, we drove. After a good night's sleep, we began to appreciate its distance from the tiny town, no television in the room, no restaurant or bar, but the pure sound of silence, and the view of the forest...

Our stay at Lodge Las Ranas could not have been better. By far the best part of our stay was our host, Shelly. Not only did she accommodate several last minute changes to our reservation with total flexibility and kindness, but her recommendations for local activities and patience with our questions truly made our visit a perfect one. We took...

We were planning to stay in Samara just one night but wound up staying two - in large part because of Lodge Las Ranas. Our room was perfect for two people, with a lovely balcony (with rocking chairs) and comfortable beds. The location is peaceful and quiet as it is up on a hill, about a 5 minute drive from...

My wife and I have stayed here several times. The lodge is located on top of a tall hill that overlooks 2 beaches. Standing on the rear balcony of our room felt like we were in the canopy of the jungle, with the pacific ocean in the background. It was not uncommon to see monkeys, toucans, iguanas or other wildlife...

The lodge is situated on a hill, therefore you have beautiful view over Samara beach. You do need a car to get to the center (25 mins), you could walk to the beach (15 mins). In front of the balcony we had monkeys, iguano's, many birds and coati's. Samara beach is clean and not very busy, you will plenty of...

Very friendly and helpful. Clean rooms with no noise airco. Great view over the hills and woods and beach. Monkeys in the trees next to your...

We spent a week at a this gorgeous little hide away. Can't say enough good things about it. The breakfasts were fresh, hot and delicious. The room was clean all around. We had a fridge to keep any food we bought. The bed was comfortable, there was a ton of space on the patio where we drank our coffee each...

This quaint little mountain top hotel has spectacular ocean views of Samara and Buenavista beaches and is surrounded by the tranquility of the rain forest. The grounds at Los Ranas are like being at a wild life reserve with regular visits from Howler monkeys, Toucans, Parrots, Iguanas, Morph butterflies... and so much more. I was so appreciative of the friendly,...

The location of this hotel is some distance from Samara Beach but a relief to from the hustle and bustle of Samara. The personal attention from Sherri and her dedicated staff was first class. So many extra touches that made you feel so very comfortable and relaxed. The breakfasts were excellent value and a great choice to suit all tastes....

We spent 5 wonderful days at Lodge Las Ranas in Samara and the experience was absolutely great. Maurice and Anna welcomed us and were extremely friendly, engaging, and helpful.
