THE FOOD The food was bland, repititive, the selection was poor, the restaurant (only one) was satisfactory THE ROOMS The rooms varied by a large margin. My group stayed in 3 rooms, and each told different stories about the resort. Room 1: You could hear the adjacent room, had no lighting along the pathway at night, however, was close to...

Awesome resort 5 minutes away from the town of samara, beds were comfortable, food and drinks were awesome. The buffet isn't huge but the food tasted amazing and was a little different everyday, Ala carte was also good and the pizza was unreal. Pool bartenders Daniel and Hugo were legends (legendaaaaas) and kept the pool tunes going and the odd...

This was my first time in Costa Rica and I couldn’t have had a better experience. The resort is small and very intimate feeling. We had a beautiful little villa with a view of the ocean through the trees. There is a main room with a couch, kitchen and table, and then an air conditioned bedroom with an adjoining bathroom....

Just came back from a fabulous stay at Hotel Villas Playa Samara. When we arrived at the airport there were 2 buses waiting for us to take us to the town of Samara. The bus ride is 2 hours but very comfortable air conditioned bus and you get to drive through valleys and little towns with pretty views. The hotel...

We stayed over the Easter break 2017, had a wonderful stay, and would be delighted to return! The HVPS is a lovely resort, made fantastic by excellent staff. Upon arrival, we were met at the front desk by Max, Manfred and Paola who quickly and efficiently checked in a large group while they offered us a welcome drink. Paola cheerfully...

This little beach front community is very serene, very simple living. Rooms are very clean and staff are friendly and always smiling. Even in extreme heat. Beach is very clean and quiet. Lots of tours to be done wether off the beach or off the resort. There were 2 young lads working the pool bar (Hugo and Daniel) and I...

My family and I decided on staying 3 days at easter with our kids at the villa. According to their ads, it was all inclusive. Ha! First off, the rooms had no tv, only the sleeping room had A/C, there where roaches all over the pantry and there was no TV. No TV!! The pool was always warm, the "all...

The lack of food they repeat the menu to many times especially in the mornings and the cleaning lady was touching our door at 8:20 am asking if she could clean the room and her cleaning was superficial, there was no type of activities for the guest but I have to give credit for some of there workers like Javier,...

We spent one week at this hotel, in a quiet room of a two story building of sixteen rooms far from front desk and the central pool. Garden view as it's said in the advertisement. The room was and kept clean, simply decorated; unfortunately no telephone in the room to contact anybody or to have any information whatsoever. The domain...
