tidiness and amenities are poorPosted Aug 31, 2013
the place is located in a good location. The staff were friendly, however the amenities are not in very good condition. The place was relatively clean, but one thing that stand out was that the bed and pillows were mouldy. The spare bed had a larger mattress than it could handle and was hard to sleep there.

DON'T DO IT!!!Posted Aug 19, 2013
Pros: WE ENJOYED LEAVING THE HOTEL
Cons: KNOCKING IT DOWN AND ALLOWING SOME INVESTORS THE CHANCE TO HAVE A GOLD MINE
Location: SAMARA'S BEACHSIDE IN GENERAL IS A RELAXING ENVIROMENT IF YOUR NOT LOOKING FOR TOURISTY PLACES. ITS ALL LOCALS FOR THE MOSTPART.
I COME FROM A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY AND THAT'S WHAT THIS WAS. ALL THE PICTURES POSTED ON THEIR WEBSITE ARE ABSOLUTELY FALSE. DIRTY SHEETS DIRTY OLD BEACH TOWELS FOR THE BATHROOM AND MOLDED PILLOWS. NO A/C DOGS LAYING AROUND THE POOL DOG FECES AROUND THE POOL THAT WAS NEVER CLEANED UP. NEVER ONCE SEEN A CLEANING LADY OR A CREW. DRIVING UP TO THE ACTUAL HOTEL IS A NON PAVED POT HOLE ROAD WHICH YOU WILL NEED A 4X4 TO GET UP AND DOWN IT. JUST A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE OVERALL.

Great views and relaxing jungle sounds!Posted Jul 2, 2013
Pros: The small apartment was not that small, the view was awesome and the kitchen was well equiped. You can easily fit about 8 people there.
Cons: The Hotel needs paint and some other small touches. I think I never saw a security guard. The TV is dated and has no remote control.
Location: The Hotel is near the beach and the center town, there are many services available at short walk distance. Restaurants, markets, pharmacy.
I would've stayed there for a month! I loved the surroundings and waking up to the sound of the ocean is just great! it feels safe and you can always see police men and women around. It was a very nice experience I would love going back soon with friends and family.

Not as advertised- Needs renovationPosted Mar 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
At one time this might have been a nice place to stay, but now it is run down. The swimming pool was not swimmable, there was a sewage smell in the bathroom that seemed to be drafting up from below. The was no kitchenette, just a little electric burner, no pot to cook in or utensils. The tiny fridge was very loud, which mixed with all the noise from the barking dog. The ceiling fan was not very powerful and since the sliding glass doors had no screens, we had to keep the doors closed at night and it got very hot in the room. The hotel safe was not attached to the wall... ended up using our own locks on suitcases to keep our stuff safe. The bed only consisted of a sheet, which ended up being fine because it was so hot and stuffy in the room. The bed had a thin foam mattress, not very confortable. The room was cleaned daily and it was a walk up the hill (but that was expected) and centrally located. On the last day the cleaning lady wanted to clean our room while we were there, so we felt very rushed even though we were not past the check out time, and I ended up leaving clothing behind. It seems like more families were living there than overnight guests. Parts of the hotel were under construction that looked like it had stopped years ago. It was not worth the price we paid.

In need of a faceliftPosted Mar 3, 2013
On arrival we had to ask for the room to be cleaned from top to bottom as floors, surfaces and insect window grilles were all very dusty .- which was carried out. All furnishings are old, tatty and basic. Patio furniture was laughable with white sheets tied over very worn cushions. Attitude of manager initially was quite unconcerned. The photos shown on the hotel's website are inaccurate e.g. the bar / terrace is closed off, and room furnishings are not as shown. The hotel is in a good position with potential, but needs attention and investment to address some of the basic problems described above.
Could Benefit from a FaceliftPosted Feb 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is mainly for longer tern stays. These are self-serve apartments with amazing views. The equipment and furnishings are more functional than fashionable. The small pool is lovely. The steep steps to the rooms make for an arduous hike in the mid-day sun. The location is convenient to the beach and shops (5-10 min walk). The foam pads/mattresses on the beds were thin. The fan was not powerful enough to cool the bedroom making it hard to sleep given the heat and many mosquitos. The owner is friendly and can extend your stay.

best ocean view in townPosted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel Mirador's location is hard to beat, 2 short blocks from the beach, restaurants, etc. with a fantastic ocean view from your balcony. It is a short climb to get there, so you must be mobile, but it's definitely worth the effort and is good exercise. The owner was very friendly and accomodating.

Fine stay, but not at all as listedPosted Dec 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
Although I enjoyed sitting on the lovely balcony, our Sky room amenities were not as described. We did have a safe, fridge, and TV. If there was a private kitchen with coffee maker and microwave, we were not shown it. Staff was pleasant, but not particularly forthcoming with information. The room wifi required a password, which the office was strangely unable to provide. We were encouraged to use the Wifi way down the steps near the office did not require a password. The view was lovely and the place seemed clean, if a bit worn.
