Pension Playa Samara was a great place to stay. The overall vibe is a travelers lodge, and other guests were friendly and informative. There are nice sitting areas for hanging out. The staff are fantastic, so helpful and kind. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. The A/C works great, plus a ceiling fan. The breakfast they provide was delicious and fresh. The location was excellent for easy access to the beach, restaurants or shops. It was a safe and quiet area. I would definitely come back here. This place is excellent value for the money.

Pension Playa Samara is such a great place to stay in Samara. Close walking distance to the beach (approx. 3 minutes depending how fast you walk), close walking distance to shops and restaurants. On-site parking. Delicious breakfast included. All staff were super nice and welcoming. The showers were great, amazing water pressure. Very clean accommodations. Highly recommend!

Also know as Pension Playa Samara. Perfect 4 families/ groups. Affordable. Super clean. Breakfast delicious (local & healthy option). Kitchenette is very helpful as restaurant food is expensive. Very nice lobby, lots of places to sit down and read or even work. Wi-fi all over. Close to the beach, restaurants, stores. Amazing staff, you feel at home! They find tours for you, give you tips on where to go, what to see, and have a laundry service on call, same price as on the local laundry. Totally recommend it!

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.
