This hotel was probably a brilliant place to stay 20 years ago, when the owner was still interested in running a good establishment, but now I think he has lost interest. His staff are mainly "interns" with no experience and no service culture, who seem to work for bed and board but no wages. His cook was poor (worst food...

A delightful hotel with comfortable beds, good showers and a home away from home feeling. It is still a 10-15 minute drive to Samara, there are beaches closer by although with signs warning about crocodiles we didn't venture in. The one thing we would recommend is having a car to get there and to get around during your stay.

We stayed 3 nights here in July and enjoyed our stay very much. We stayed in the larger room with the kitchenette. It was perfect for our family, as we could make some meals ourselves. We also ate at the hotel restaurant. The food was always fresh and flavorful. The rooms were simple, but comfortable. We enjoyed the beach down...

During my vacation in Costa Rica, I came across to the Hotel Paraiso Cocodrilo and from the beginning I liked it so much. The Room, the service and especially the international and national food. Recently we had a Serbian bean soup and otherwise they have always fresh fish and is delivered daily by local fishermen. The hotel complex has impressed...

This hotel is about a 15 min drive from Samara, so you need your own ride. It's very clean, a little quirky, and nestled in a hideaway area of jungle with lots of local wildlife (and beautiful nighttime fireflies). Nice pool and the quirky owner makes a damn good meal! A 10 min walk to the beach (or two mins...

We were traveling through Samara and needed a place to stay for one night and Paraiso del Cocodrilo fit the bill. We were looking for something a bit more rural, and beach proximity was not essential (we were en route to Playa Grande, where we would have plenty of beach time). This hotel has a lot of character and the...

We stayed here for 5 days, as a last leg of our honeymoon, and boy can I say we were happy with our choice! We stayed in the cheapest room/house and it was incredibly clean, roomy and well located.
