Very nice condo in Samara

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at this clean and well equipped condo. The owner and local manager were professional and responsive. We had no problems, but I'm confident that any would have been dealt with quickly. The photos and description in the listing are quite accurate. The balcony was very nice and private, and the pool was excellent (and necessary during the hot dry season there!) -- lounge chairs were always available with enough shade, and we often had it all to ourselves in a high season. While it is a short walk from the condo to Samara beach, this is to the south end of it which has no services or shade. The much better option is to drive 2 minutes to Carillo Beach which is one of the best beaches in Costa Rica, 2-3 km long, mostly palm-lined and safe, with plenty of parking. It was mostly deserted on weekdays, and only moderately busy with local Ticos on the weekend. It's an easy 5 minute drive into Samara town which has plenty of good restaurants and a full grocery store, but at night you need to be careful of people walking and biking on the road. It really isn't practical to walk into town, especially in the evenings, so a car is almost essential if you want to stay at this condo, however you could use taxis to get into town and apparently they can be called to the small hotel on the same site. This hotel also has a very good restaurant.

Owner's Response: Many thanks, David, for your review. We have enjoyed having you as you were great guests and pleasant people. We appreciate your feed back regarding the beaches and both Samara and Carrillo. Having a car is a definite plus not just to go frm and to the apartment, but also to visit nearby areas of attraction and different leisure activities. It was our pleasure to host you and we look forward to seeing you soon in the near future. Best wishes. Raif

Clean and comfortable. Close to beautiful beaches!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing, and not long enough! Laura the manager was very friendly and was always prompt in responding to any questions we had.

Just wish there were nicer chairs at the pool.

Perfect for 3 days!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was perfect for the 3 days we were there. Any longer, and we would have stayed in Samara so we were closer to everything. Lots of bugs and some of the lights didn't work properly. Other than that, it served its purpose! Pool was great!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Shellia, I am glad the condo was perfect for your stay. For people who MUST be in the center of Samara, this is not the place, but for others who appreciate security, peaceful quiet place with beautiful surroundings, our condo is the best! The lights issue is easily addressed (we ask that you tell the Manager immediately) and there are bugs OUSIDE the building. After all, we have great natural environment :-) Best wishes. Raif

Quiet, comfortable condo with a nice pool

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, comfortable condo with a nice pool and friendly neighbors. It is not really great walking to the beach with kids (narrow road, 1/2 mile walk) so best that you have a car. Towels were provided which was nice but we could have used another couple blankets. Carrillo beach was beautiful and samara was busier but fun for surfing and kayaking.

Owner's Response: Hi Jacquelyn, Thank you for staying with us. I am glad you guys enjoyed Playa Carrillo as well as Samara. The pool is always a hit especially with the children. I agree that having a car is a plus especially when you have kids. Hope to see you back soon! Raif

Smooth Beginning and Ending Process

  • 5 of 5

The Owner was very easy to work with and provided quick responses and helpful information.

Note: I did not actually rent or see the unit. I did reserve the unit but had to cancel due to change in plans (not related to unit). The Owner quickly handled the cancellation process according to the policy that was in place at the time of reservation. He was very gracious and wished me well. The reservation and cancellation processes were both very smooth with no issues. I appreciate the quality of service. Wishing the Owner well!
