A great find in the Samara area or anywhere. Very clean and well appointed room. Beautiful grounds and pool. The staff were all amazing and very professional. Have the fresh fish for dinner by the pool. Walk to Samara beach for sunset, but make sure to spend a morning on Playa Carillo with the shade trees and vendors. Try Gusto Beach restaurant for dinner and Coco's for live music... we had a great night. We travel all around the world and this was one of our favorite spots.

This small, exclusive hotel was the perfect stay for me and my family. We 6 nights stayed at the penthouse which felt like home. Very spacious, comfortable, lovely equipped kitchen and we all had our own bedroom and bathroom, a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and nature. It is only a short walk to the beautiful beach of Samara. The service was fantastic; friendly and effective staff. Highly recommendable!

This is a small, upscale, quiet, secluded, intimate and reasonably priced hotel near the beach outside Samara. Staff was was particularly pleasant and accommodating. Beautiful setting, interesting wildlife, excellently maintained, very nice pool and ambience, and comfortable and large modern rooms. Short walk to the beach and a quick, easy drive to Samara and other beaches. One of the nicest hotels and areas I've been to in Costa Rica. Returned for additional visits. Strongly recommend.

Best part of our stay at this tucked away hotel were the staff. They made us feel welcome and went out of their way to please us.
Our room was excellent and all amenities just perfect.
The hotel is located a five minute walk to the beach and a short drive from downtown Samara making it very convenient for early morning swim's or late night dinner in town.

This place hit every note... excellent service from check in to check out!! We enjoyed delicious and refreshing poolside cocktails. The food was so freaking good we ate every single meal at the hotel and never went out! Actually the only reason we even left the hotel was to see the sunset at the beach... just a two minute walk away! Highly recommend to anyone visiting the Samara/Carrillo beach area of Guanacaste.
