We have stayed at the Samara Palm Lodge twice over the last 6 years, first as a couple, then with our young family. The rooms are simple, clean, and perfect for a relaxing beach stay. You can easily walk to Samara Beach, and several other beaches if you are willing to do some hiking. Traveling with two toddlers is not...

A great place to stay and relax. Brigitte and Lothar are very friendly and helpful. They give you good advises where to go and what to see. A quiet and very cosy place, close to the beaches and restaurants. The rooms are always very clean and nicely decorated. Great breakfast.

We stayed for three nights at this calm and beautiful hotel and we enjoyed it a lot. Brigitte and Lothar are very lovely and helpful and we felt very comfortable at their place. The lodge is well located, away from the lively citycentre but everything is reachable easily by foot. The rooms are clean and bright and the breakfast delicious,...

The first thing we noticed when we arrived at Sámara Palm Lodge was how absolutely charming and beautiful it is. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well laid out. The bed was comfortable too, though there was only a blanket, no comforter. I like to really be covered when I'm sleeping, so I also slept with my jacket and a...

We stayed 2 nights in the family suite: just perfect, finely decorated and spotless clean. We appreciated our hosts' kind attention leaving teddy bears in the kids room. The whole place is very well tended: clean and very cosy. The breakfast is delicious and taken on the terrace in front of the pool. The hosts, Brigitte and Lothar are very...

The owners of Samara Palm Lodge have created a little oasis in the laid-back resort of Samara. The rooms are delightful (although don't expect luxuries such as a TV, fridge or hair-dryer) and face a charming little pool, surrounded by plants and statues. There is a lovely, friendly atmosphere and the owners are constantly on hand to provide advice /...

We got a room on the groundfloor as promised. Very kind Swiss owners! Wonderful breakfast! Very cosy room, very clean. Rooms are around nice pool. The room has airco. Because this is an upgrade location for us, we missed our own refrigerator or a coffeemachine. During the night you here a lot of noise from the road, that can really...

Samara Palm Lodge is really lovely. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the breakfast extremely filling and the owners couldn't do any more to help. All their restaurant recommendations were spot on and the pool and surroundings very relaxing. We spent 4 nights at the end of a two week trip and would not hesitate to recommend the lodge to others.
