Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is the perfect little getaway location for those who want comfort and genuine service without all the bells, whistles and stuffiness of a large luxury property. Very laid back and an absolutely wonderful owner. We will be back.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They also arranged a horseback riding excursion which was fantastic and great value for the money. The room was fairly basic, but the pool was great and there were many comfortable places to sit around the lodge. The restaurant was excellent and very reasonably priced. It was a little farther from the beach than I thought, but still only a 5-10 minute walk. It was a 10-15 minute walk to town, but nice to be a bit removed from the noise. We also saw and heard howler monkeys right outside the hotel. Great place to stay!

A Quaint Resort
Absolutely fanstastic breakfast. The hotel has a lovely little pool that feels wonderful in hot and humid Costa Rica weather. Walk to downtown Sámara is around 20-25 minutes and so is the walk to the two beaches. The road leading up to the hotel is not paved. There is an excellent hike right next to the hotel leading up to a beach. You can see monkeys and other animals on this hike.
