We showed up in Samara with four small kids after a two hour drive from Liberia to be told we had been double booked by Trip Advisor and there was no availability. This was Easter weekend; the busiest Fri of the year. The owner could not explain why nobody called or e-mailed me but just threw his hands up and...

We sincerely regret, but we had written directly after the reservation that we have no room free. Otherwise, they are a very loving and religious person, and many thanks for the review.

My sister and I stayed here for three nights and LOVED it SO much that we rebooked it for her last two nights yet to come in Costa Rica! The hotel itself is quite eclectic, with beautiful architecture and stunning and lush grounds which are extremely well maintained. The staff and owner were incredibly gracious and accommodating, and allowed me...

Well, to be honest arriving there indeed is an experience, because it really is a bit remote. But I actually don't see a problem with that, I mean, if you travel to a foreign place you should prepare and inform yourself for the journey, that kind of includes doing a little research on where you are staying... So, once arrived...

Admittedly... You do have to do some driving to get there but it well worth it. The hotel/appartments are situated in a beautiful garden. Huge trees shelter you and a lot of other animals. The setup of the apartments is smart so that everyone has their own private piece of the garden. Early morning breakfast outside anyone? Rooms are big...

We humans tend to forget the little failures and the small inconveniences that accompany our adventures if only the journey is garnished with good intentions, great mood and positive energy. The same goes for our lodging experiences. We would readily dismiss and even forget those annoyances if we only felt respected and appreciated as customers, if we were compensated in...

After analyzing the reviews, we decided to take a chance on this place, and are very glad we did. It was perfect for us, with our own transport as well as bicycles, so we could easily access town and beach via various routes (most involving at least one river crossing). The large room we booked was fabulous - two double...
