I really loved this place. It has everything you need - and nothing you don't. Very queit, very close to the beach, amazing breakfast, right next to a local Saturday market, free fridge with cold water, a kitchen where you can make your own meals. The main feeling was that of relaxation and kicking back with a book, very peaceful. Such a nice place to come back to after the beach or a hike and unwind. Oh, and the world's friendlist, lovely resident dog

Room was nice and beds were quite comfortable. Rebecca and staff were very hospitable and eager to help with any of our needs. Breakfast was provided daily and was always delicious. The courtyard and dining areas were always kept nice and provided a pleasant spot to visit with our group or other travelers. I would definitely stay here again.

We are residents of Monteverde, and this hotel is "THE" go-to place for getaways for couples and families. We finally made it here after years of planning and never going, and we were delighted. Just the right mix of friendly service. Perfect pool for kids, funky room, and an easy walk to the beach. Also: the breakfast juice was so good. Super fresh and refreshing.

The place is very well located and very quiet. Everything is very clean and the shared shower is large and beautiful. The service was more than good. The nice lady who takes care of the bar is very smiling (unfortunately I forgot her name) Very good breakfast included in the price. In short, I highly recommend.

Pension Playa Samara was a safe and friendly home-base for my first solo international trip. Their booking process was flexible and easy over the phone. AC was appreciated and worked great, I followed instructions to use sparingly (be green!), and it would cool down the room in minutes after having it off all day. I had the typical breakfast each morning and it was delicious and kept me going till lunch time. Most importantly, the staff was friendly and helpful, and made me feel comfortable knowing I had local help if I ever needed it during my stay. Muchas gracias and I can't wait to come back!

The hotel was very comfortable with an effective and quiet air conditioner in the room. We enjoyed the outdoor sitting space for breakfasts or to read in the shade. We didn't make much use of the pool since the hotel was only a 5 min walk to the beautiful warm ocean waters. We were delighted by the vegan breakfasts that we got everyday: local fruit and gallo pinto. We would definitely come back to stay again in the future.

The Rancho de la Playa is a very nice, well priced hotel, a short walk from the beach but far enough away to be quiet. It has different types of rooms available, from hostel style to singles to family suites. The hotel is clean and well maintained, with nice areas to just hang out and relax, and some hammocks for napping. My room was a bit spartan, but had good AC and a fan. It was very comfortable and an excellent value for the price. The WiFi had a good connection in the common area, but speed was kind of slow, and it was weaker in my room. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. This was my second time staying there, and I will definitely be back.

I stayed with my boyfriend in December. We had a really really really nice stay at this place. The service is just outstanding. You feel welcome and appreciated the staff is just sooooo nice, smiling and friendly. They have a lot of advises about what to do around but also about all Costa Rica this is always welcome. They are always ready to help. Of course the rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are spotless.The parking is free and guarded at night. I did also appreciate this point. It's really close from the beach but you also have a pool if you want to avoid the very hot temperatures at midday. I really liked the breakfast too. I had the guayopinto. Well for us everything was perfect I recommend this place 200%.

We spend five days in nice family room apartment. We arrived on last day 2017 and spend there five days with family. The location is great. Samara isn't a big city, probably that for we like it so much. Rancho is in the corner surrounded by flowers and just a few meters from the coast. You can't see the sea. There is no noise you can have a nice sleeping. The people are friendly. After a year we still listening to radio Samara for a memory on a great vacation.

Pension Playa Samara (Rancho de la Playa) was the perfect place to stay in Samara. It is located a one minute walk from the beach (easy access, but not subject to the many, many people walking along the beach.) The rooms (one for two adults, and one for the two 14-year-olds we had with us) were very comfortable (air conditioning, comfortable beds, etc.), exceptionally clean and very affordable. Every staff member was incredibly helpful and friendly, breakfast (included) was delicious and there were always cold beverages to purchase and free coffee and tea. The pool area (with shade and lounge chairs) provided a needed afternoon respite from the strong sun at the beach. After spending the weekend in Samara and walking around and visiting other restaurants and hotels, I am sure that the Pension Playa Samara (Rancho de la Playa) is the perfect spot for a relaxed and affordable, family and friends vacation. I am originally from the US and currently living in another part of Costa Rica. I can't wait to return to Samara and the Pension.
