Second time visiting the Rancho - just as good as the first. Megan and the other beautiful bar crew keep the drinks appearing as if they were being fast-track couriered. The food they deliver is tasty to say the least - Costa Rican dishes, Italian, lobster, whatever! The crowd here is extremely friendly - no difficulty in striking up a...

Like the title says it, I liked the room but not the shared bathroom. We had to take a room with a shared bathroom because there was no other availability during the weekend in high season (January). Room was nice with the wood flooring, comfortable bed, a little hot with only a fan but I slept good. The problem was...

I had the pleasure of returning to Rancho de la Playa since i wrote my other review and my opinions haven't changed: I have stayed in countless hostals and Rancho de la Playa ranks along with the best I have stayed in. Friendly and efficient staff who showed me a number of rooms with/without aircon, private/dormitory to fit most budgets....

stayed there for 3 nights in September. We've been in a double with bathroom and AC. The hotel at all is really nice with very welcoming staff. The restaurant was good with daily specials what we really liked :) It was at the beginning of the rainy season so Samara was some kind of dead. Some restaurants and bars were...

We went to Playa Samara in august 2013 and found this amazing hotel by chance but with great luck!! Our stay at this place is for sure one of our highlights of our trip in Costa Rica. The people there, especially the owner Toni, his nieces and the staff Megan and Cathy are just wonderful people. We felt like home...

The overall first impression of this hotel is nice and cozy. There was life music that night witch can be a bit of a concern if you're staying there with children or if you want to go to sleep early. We stayed in the bar because it's better to join if you can't beat them. LOL The staff was super...

The hotel is really a great deal - nice clean room. A/C that actually works, shower that delivers hot water, satellite TV, kitchenette: in a word: worth at least the price (($50/per night in low season). Warning: if you a 5 Star hotel person, not your place. In fact, Samara itself is not a place for 5 Star Hotel people...

I have a bit of a traveling problem; I travel the earth when I can and because of this, there are times where I have had to learn to rely on the kindness of strangers. Two nights ago was one of those occasions. Having to catch a bus in Samara at 4:30 in the morning, I had to take a...

This hotel is centrally located in Samara and managed by a small but efficient, multi-lingual staff. It is 2 minutes from Playa Samara, one of the cleanest and safest beaches in Costa Rica. This hotel and restaurant is very family orientated with a clean pool and fully stocked bar. The downside of our visit is that we could not take...
