Nice boutique hotel close to the beach. On an improvement note they might want to replace their holey bedsheets.

Amazing Beach Stay
We were only at this hotel for one night but the location was perfect! We have a one year old and the beach was about a 2 minute walk. It has everything you need if you're looking for a relaxing beach stay. Plus there were 2 for 1 cocktails at happy hour!
Erin, ca1 night family trip
Very good 8,0
The property is quiet and chilled out. If you want a somewhere to stay which is a safe and easy walking distance to restaurants and bars I wouldn’t stay here it’s a bit too far out but if that doesn’t worry you it’s a 5 min drive or 30 min walk along the beach to the main Sámara beach area (its pretty dark to walk at night I would probably suggest a taxi 2000-3000 colones)

Small hotel. Quiet garden setting, a few chickens roaming. Nice. Relaxing. Good breakfast included and nice dinner menu. 200 meters from a local beach..reef protected so quiet and warm sea. Very picturesque.

Nice hotel but not directly by the beach.
Nice hotel with friendly staff. However, we didn't like the location as it was not directly by the beach and quite far from restaurants in Samara city. It was necessary to take a taxi every time we went to the city. For families with small children this location might be good, as it's quiet and no car traffic to endanger the children. The pool is small and placed so that the sun only covers it in the morning.
