The location was great and you can tell that once upon a time this place was in it's glory but it is getting run down and the girl who was acting as reception service was very poor and was never upfront on timing of things and literally we had to knock on her door 3 times and she ignored our...

Two of us stayed in an apartment for three nights and had a very welcoming and comfortable stay. The owner is very friendly (he even drove us and our luggage to our front door) and was accommodating to any questions that we had. The apartment was a great size with plenty of space and more than adequately appointed. Whilst the...

I stayed at the Mirador last summer with my boyfriend. The apartments were exactly what we were looking for, enabling us to cook instead of going out to eat. We were there in low season, so it wasn't crowded, but Max and his wife and daughter were always around which made it feel very safe - we knew if we...

Myself and about 5 other friends stayed at the Mirador from Jan 29th to Feb 4th. I gotta say overall what stood out for me was the amazing view, the sun sets where spectacular. Another particular characteristic I really liked was that they where pet friendly, I've been travelling to Costa Rica for several years now and this is a...

We stayed here over the Christmas period and New Year. The location of the hotel is ideal for local amenities and the beach which is only a five minute walk away.

My family and I went to Hotel Mirador de Samara during New Years. If you visit Hotel Mirador it will be the worst experience you'll have in Costa Rica!

I must say that this review is the most strangest that my hotel has received for about 20 years running. Either this traveler never stayed in the hotel Mirador , and had some information from a third person and mixed true and untrue details together. Or its just a simple way tto try to harm the buisiness 1..The swimming pool...

We were planning a quick getaway for last New Year´s Eve but we had the problem of not having anyone to take care of our 2 dogs.

My wife and I began our honeymoon in Sámara and were blown away by the view at this hotel. Rustic, and literally no a/c, but the proprietor, Max, was awesome and the view was stunning. Minutes walk from the beaches/town/shops/etc. Super low-key, unfortunately being a northerner (Minnesota) I needed a/c, but if you want adventure, this is the place to...

“All of the rooms overlook the ocean, might get a slightly better view from the top floor of the apartments, but it was nice to be on the ground floor because we could walk down to the pool from our room.”
  • Deck off our room, could walk down to the pool from here.
