The hotel is not big but charming

Posted Jul 28, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel is at a convenient and safe location. The beach area is very safe even during the night. The souvenir shopping is limited. The hotel is well maintained and very clean. The way the hotel held deposit is different from other hotels. They did not use the actual check in date. But, the bill came out correct. Thus, no problem.

Lovely clean comfy place by bus station

Posted Jun 19, 2017 on Hotels
Nice clean room, comfy mattress, nice terrace/balcony facing the pools, good breakfast, excellent service, great location right around the corner from the bus station and steps away from many good restaurants and shopping, and a couple of short pleasant blocks from the big wide lovely beach. Samara is touristy like any beach town, but still quaint and plenty of locals around too. Giada's pools are small but lovely and very clean, with nice landscaping and lots of butterflies, and no one else was even using them when we were there. The Jacuzzi is large; it doesn't seem to have warm/hot water but the jets work great. I would come back. Pura vida!

Beautiful property

Posted Jun 10, 2017 on Hotels
Samara is one of my favorite towns on earth. I have stayed at Giada three times now and it is a great spot. The employees are friendly and knowledgeable, the gardens are beautiful, everything is clean and the breakfast is yummy. The location is perfect! It is only a couple minute walk to the beach and central to all the hotels and activities. The hotel is surrounded by wildlife, so if you enjoy nature you will love the property. There are often howler monkeys in nearby trees and birds singing. You will also find colorful lizards and many butterflies.

Adequate accommodations.

Posted May 11, 2017
The room was small, but the AC worked. The pools were nice and often the internet was slow. It is within walking distance of everything - the beach, restaurants, and grocery stores. Breakfast was good. Sometimes there was a lot of road noise from the highway that passed behind the hotel. Staff were pleasant and helpful. You get what you pay for. This is a clean, affordable hotel with few frills.
