LOVELY HOUSE IN BEAUTIFUL TRANQUIL SETTING CLOSE TO EVERYTHING IN SAMARA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 14 days and were very satisfied and relaxed here. The house was clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was functional and sufficient allowing us to cook many of our meals, enjoying dining on the terrace amongst the gardens listening to the waves from the beach a block away. We had cleaning service by friendly staff every third day that included fresh linens. The pool was clean and refreshing after a hot day. We found Samara to be safe and welcoming, but felt extra secure with the gated grounds. We were entertained by howler monkeys and iguanas often, and our kids also loved the chicks and roosters that roamed around. The owners and staff were responsive to a special need that we had, and were always helpful and pleasant. I took in a massage at the schools' center that was very good, and was grateful to have the only slot open for the week. The service is popular amongst the ex-pats and locals! The gounds are continually groomed and maintained very well. There is some noise that comes from the local bars on the weekend nights, and from the town starting to wake up in the morning, but we did not find it problematic. It was a worthwhile exchange for a 2-3 minute walk with a 5 year old to the beach, restaurants, bank, store, etc. The wifi internet was an excellent ammenity to keep in touch and look up activities. Samara is friendly, safe, and great for families. There are no fancy high rise hotels or pushy salespeople on the beach. The beach is clean, safe for swimming with kids, and a good place to learn to surf. We tried quite a few restaurants and did not have bad meal. The "typical" food of rice and beans with meat or fish is very good and inexpensive, other items are good also but can be pricey. Overall, we would recommend this property and town to friends who want a safe beach experience in a place that feels like a real Costa Rican beach community along with the tourism that benefits the area economically.

GOOD LOCATION, NICE HOUSE, NO FRILLS...

  • 3 of 5
We stayed for 10 nights in June 2010. It is a cute 2 bed 2 bath house within gated massage school campus. Only about 1 min walk to the beach and within walking distance to most everything in town. We were excited to be offered discounted massages as advertised. Unfortunately we were not informed that they were completely booked the WHOLE time we were staying there. We were VERY disappointed about this as it was one of the selling points of this rental. The grounds were beautiful and the people were friendly. It was also nice having the pool right outside the door and free WiFi. There is housekeeping but we were never offered clean sheets for the beds. Good thing there were only 2 of us so we could strip the other bed of its sheets to use half way through the stay. It would also have been nice to have curtains or blinds over the sliding glass door as there was no privacy in the livingroom. We had a great time in Samara and enjoyed being so close to everything. There are lots of good restaurants and fun things to do in town. I would recomend this place to friends but would just want them to know about that massages may not me available.
