Great location near a fantastic beach!

Posted Feb 3, 2017
Pros: See above
Cons: The complimentary breakfast could be improved upon. But, hey, it's part of the package!
Location: The swimming was excellent - shallow Pacific waters near the shore. Great landscape, so walking the beach is a pleasure. Horse back riding. Good food
This hotel, while not luxurious, was comfortable, clean and has air conditioning. There's a lovely courtyard with a very inviting pool to take the edge off hot afternoons. The staff is excellent and friendly. Carolina, the day manager, went beyond the call of duty to make our stay most enjoyable.

Comfortable hotel 2 minutes' walk from beach

Posted Mar 24, 2016
Pros: The location and relaxed atmosphere.
Location: Close to the beach and restaurants.
The hotel is very conveniently located in the main street of the village, only a couple of minutes' walk from the beach. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. The outdoor pool is of a good size and depth. It was pleasing to see the pool being cleaned first thing each morning. The staff are pleasant, friendly and accommodating.

Staff is amazing! People are generally nice in Samara. Great location, it is not on the beach, but a walking distance to the beach, around 50-100 meters. There is a Bar across the street, some people may say it is laud , but it did not bother me a bit. Was mostly tired from the activities I did during the day. Internet could be faster, it only works at the lobby, in the rooms it is a bit slow, this was the only thing that bothered me the most, slow internet , otherwise, it is a great place with a great staff!

Beautiful garden with tropical birds and iguanas.

Posted Nov 8, 2015
Pros: The beautiful garden, nice staff, relaxing atmosphere and the location.
Cons: Nothing
Location: The location is excellent for the beach (good for beginner surfers), dining and live music.
The hotel is 3 minutes to the beach and the small swimming pool was also handy for a cooling dip. We saw a couple of large iguanas on the palm tree by the pool. Also some colorful birds constantly visited the tree in front of our room. The staff were all very pleasant.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Oct 17, 2015
Pros: It's cheap, in the middle of everything in Samara.
Cons: More parking space, the breakfast could be available earlier.
Location: You can find many restaurants nerby, and a supermarket (called Pali) within walking distance. There are many options for beach fun.
It's a good hotel in Samara Dowtown, within walking distance of everything.

Enjoyable stay

Posted Sep 29, 2015
I stayed during the low season so the price was nice and about half of the usual cost. The room was large and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. They offered a free breakfast. There was a nice pool on site and 24 hr security. It was centrally located, close to shops and the beach. The rooms were quite even when there was a loud party at the bar across the street.

Nice location

Posted Jul 22, 2015
In overal the hotel is good. Nevertheless, the pool seemed a little dirty and the parking space is too small.

A very noisy bar across the street. Don't expect to sleep if you stay here.
