Cozy & unpretentious Bougainville

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Nice hotel totally aligned with the rusticity and unpretentious natural beauty of Samara. The Bougainville wall surrounding the natural stone cozy pool granted a picture album. Great Tipico breakfast and friendly staff. Clean. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

Small Hotel on a Busy Road

Posted Mar 13, 2015
Pros: Clean and tidy.
Cons: Regular cotton sheets, lounges at the pool and speed bumps out front.
Location: Playa Samara is about 1 km away and it is one of the nicest in the country. There are lots of good restaurants in town about 1 km away.
We thought this hotel would be quiet because it is about 1 km from town, but we could not have been more wrong. The hotel is located on a straight stretch of road with no speed bumps and the locals race back and forth at high speeds on their noisy ATVs, motorcycles and vehicles. Even though our room was located in the quietest part of the hotel at the back, the noise was still bothersome. If you don`t have a vehicle you will have to walk for about 1 km on this dangerous road to get to town or the beach. The hotel is tidy and clean, but there are some tacky features like plastic-lined bottom sheets on the beds and only 5, cheap, plastic chairs at the tiny pool instead of lounges or recliners. The breakfasts are basic fare and they are a specified quantity. If you are a hearty eater and want more, you have to pay. The hotel is located in a Costa Rican neighborhood, so be prepared to put up with barking dogs and crowing roosters.

Dissappointing

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Pool was not useable and gross and no apology for it. Rooms are small and unispired but clean.

Simple, nothing fancy but fair price

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Breakfast
Cons: Staff a bit more friendly (specially night guard)
Location: Beach, beach, and beach
Our stay was ok. This hotel does not offer a lot of amenities, no toiletries, small rooms and small pool, BUT it is fairly inexpensive and within 10 min walk to the beach (15-20 min walk to town center). The hotel is clean, descent and simple. Breakfast is good, fair portion and best of all- included in your stay!

Hotel Samara Inn

Posted Jan 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
At first I wished the hotel was closer in town but it was really a nice and short walk. I loved the breakfast and the breakfast room. There is a great little bakery and a market right around the corner. I enjoyed our stay throughly.

Hôtel correct et propre

Posted Oct 6, 2013
Pros: Les chambres sont calmes.
Cons: Le petit déjeuner pourrait être amélioré (tant au niveau qualité que quantité)
Location: Proche plages et commodités
Hôtel correct et propre, les chambres sont suffisamment équipées (tv, wifi, coffre fort...) la piscine est petite mais avec un jacuzzi, les petits déjeuners sont un peu "pauvres". Proche de la plage.

This hotel was a little bit down the road from Samara but an easy walk to the town. The breakfast is outstanding and there is a nice pool and great views. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

Mooie ruime kamer met airco -schone kamer ( dit vond ik trouwens in alle hotels die we bezocht hebben) Het hotel ligt buiten centrum 15 min lopen .Zeer klein zwembad met kapote ligstoelen.Ontbijt keuze goed portie kon iets groter zijn. Samara moet de place to be zijn als strandbestemming maar dit valt ietwat tegen.1 strandtent waar je strandbedjes kon huren.Strand niet opgeruimd,
