                                                                    The Samara location in itself is great for families and surf beginners and yet not too "touristy". Condo location is central, far enough from the noise of the village, but close enough everything is walkable distance. Easy check-in and check-out, helpful staff. All the commodities are included (even washer-dryer, not too common in CR). The view from the condo unit is beautiful and the apartment, although it would require a little clean-up, is spacious for a family of four. We enjoyed and would recommend. The Côté family from Quebec, Canada.

                                                                    Loved Samara and Veneto11

                                                                    My wife and I spent 24 days in Costa Rica, 7 days at Veneto11 in Samara. We had outstanding accommodations everywhere (Playa Hermosa and Papagayo Peninsula), our favourite place was Samara. The panoramic view is spectacular. The a/c and fans kept the condo very comfortable. The condo is well equipped: lots of beach towels, washer/dryer, boogie boards, wifi, cleaning/kitchen supplies. We really appreciated having a beach umbrella and back pack style beach chairs complete with pouches to store thing like ice packs and cold beer - other properties often do not offer this and if you love the beach, they are must haves. We are in our mid 50's, we had absolutely no problems climbing those flight of stairs and tackling the hill to/from the beach everyday. It was good fitness. If your health cannot take lots of stairs, move on...this is not the place; however, the view makes every single step worth it. We walked everywhere and felt completely safe. I would recommend having a flashlight along the road, beach or the hill at night to return to the condo (I used my phone - worked great). The complex is one of the best in all of Samara, 24 hour security and a nicely maintained property with beautiful palm trees. The community pool was very clean, a welcoming opportunity to meet fellow vacationers for tips on Samara. Samara is a gem (only 15 minutes walk), to the heart of town. The community has 3 grocery stores, lots of restaurants, shopping, good/safe ATM services. Recommend: the 'Flying Taco' Wednesday evenings for 'open mic night' and the quaint beach restaurant 'Bahai Rest and Bar' right at the bottom of the path from the condo for 'pancakes with fruit' - $4usd with a cup of coffee. Get the guard to call a taxi and spend the day at Carrillo beach, 7 minutes away - it's beautiful. The owner, Mike was a pleasure to book with, very reasonable and fair. I knew I could trust Mike when he refunded me $24 because PayPal didn't charge fees. Manager, Nick is there for you and is a very pleasant happy character. He cares that you are happy and enjoying yourselves, if you are - he is happy. We didn't have any issues. We enjoyed having Chili Guaros with Nick one evening. My only minor complaint is, we enjoy cooking our own meals and there really is limited counter space. Perfectly understandable when you have panoramic windows, we managed just fine - but an island would make the property perfect. We highly recommend Veneto11 and Samara as a vacation destination.

                                                                    This place was billed "compatible for the elderly and infirm." Unfortunately getting down from the 3rd floor with very few handrails and a non-functioning elevator did not fit this description. Then to get to the pool another 2 flights of stairs. On arrival at the pool no hand rails but was able to pull a chair to the edge and back down the steps. The manager on the phone seemed sympathetic, but the "administrator" was not.. I managed to get out of my "jail cell" a few times in the 2 weeks. Didn't really expect it in such a modern place, but there were no Tico touches.

We tried urgently to solve the handrail issue with the HOA and have emergency access to the elevator - unfortunately things don't move at the speeds they do in the ‘real world’. We also tried to find ground floor accommodations so we could move the group but no accommodations were available - the town was fully booked. We were unaware that our guest used a walker and was close to wheelchair bound. We would have gladly refunded his booking in full had we known. We would not recommend our condo to those with mobility issues/concerns and are looking closely into any misrepresentation. We do our best to hold to the same standards that we are used to. But in Costa Rica, the ability to implement and/or enforce these regulations (and in some cases, ‘laws’), can be seriously hampered by the fog of bureaucracy. We do not list the building as having an elevator in any of our advertising to avoid this exact situation. This is the first time it has become a real issue. However, once is enough. The comment written cannot be disputed. Our guest has our sincerest apologies and we want to assure not only him, but everybody, that every effort was made to address this. Our property manager was in constant contact with us and did everything possible during the rental period to help. The work did not stop then – Board, HOA and owners are all in discussion to make sure this does not happen again. As one condo of many we in the process of amending our own descriptions to make sure our guests have the most up to date information regarding our building. If any of our guests reading this have questions or concerns then please ask and we will be happy to answer and help.

                                                                    The amazing view is TRUE!

                                                                    We loved the town of Samara and the beach. Nick, the property manager was warm and welcoming and helped us get settled in easily. The condo is well laid out and the view is spectacular. It worked well for our family of three, but one thing to note is that it is a property of stairs, stairs, stairs! It is two flights up/down to ground level and another down to the pool. Also, the beach is just about a ten minute walk, but across the main road and again it's a lot of stairs and a hill climb. We decided to embrace it as a fitness challenge, but it would have been impossible if my parents had joined us for example. All in all, we were very happy and appreciated that there were boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. on hand. Also appreciated having a washer/dryer in the condo. Enjoy!

Condo was clean and well stocked. Check in was smooth and property manager and on scene staff had lots of good recommendations. Great experience, we would definitely stay there again.
