We are a young couple and spent 5 nights here during march 2014. We liked the hotel very much and recommend it to you!

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. Mind you you do need a 4x4 car to get here, since you need to go through a small stream/river, but...

I can tell you people only the best of Rainer's beautiful hotel in Playa Buena Vista. I have been staying there twice, June 2008 and July 2013. Both times I was overwhelmed by the nature around the hotel and the superb quality of the rooms (spacious, clean) which have been decorated in a sort of exotic style, but with great...

I stayed here six years ago, and then again just last week. It was fantastic and hadn't changed a bit in all that time. The grounds are well taken care of, with grasses, flowers, palm trees, hammocks and a pool. The restaurant and bar are at the center, with bungalows to one side and apartments to the other. Prices for...

We loved it here! Rainer picked us up from Liberia airport and took us back to the hotel. The main roads to Samara are good, but this hotel and its beach, Playa Buena Vista is a little out of the way so the roads are bad, hence a 4x4 is a necessity (you have to drive through a couple of...

We spent a great time in this small, very personel hotel. Endless beaches, and hardly any people, but breading turtles and fish hunting pelicans instead. A tropical paradise for nature lovers. We relaxed in the well designed tropical garden which is surrounded by mangroves. And the daily bath in the swimming pool was just marvelous. While sunbathing we watched the...

Before making reservations, I asked the owner if the beach was safe for swimming and close to the hotel, he said there was a trail from his hotel to the beach that was 300 meters and the water was good for swimming.
