The hotel doesn't take credit cards so remember to bring enough cash. If you forget there is a bank of Costa Rica a short walk away but it only lets you withdraw 200 american dollars per day. The room could have used AC but the fan worked just fine. The nights were rather loud because of winds and trees dropping things onto the roof. The location of the hotel was ideal and the staff were quite efficient. Nothing beats waking up to the sound of waves crashing on the shore and enjoying the continental breakfast with the company of many friendly travelers and some local animal friends.
We booked this place because the beach restaurant area looked like fun and we thought it would be nice to stay on the beach and watch a sunset. The pictures of the rooms don't do it justice. We were blown away when they took us to our "bungalow" which is like a modern day hut and it was so awesome! Samara had the best beach area we saw out of all the cities on the Pacific side. The town is small and everything is a short walk from the hotel. I definitely recommend checking this place out!
The beach chairs and beds out front are a dream, the staff is very attentive and nice. The food and drinks are delicious.
There is no AC, and the fans are not very powerful, but there is a nice breeze that comes from being so close to the water so it wasn't bad. Wifi did not work in the rooms but I worked well in the restaurant and beach area. We had quite a few ants in our room
