We stayed here at the end of a Monkey Tour at the beginning of March. We upgraded to a beachfront villa and very glad that we did. The beach is incredible and stretches as far as you can see. You can sit in your lounge chair for hours and see very few people. There are wild horses running this beach...

We stayed in one of the Junior Villas. It was clean and well kept. There is a large bedroom for the parents with a beautifully tiled bathroom. There is air conditioning in this room. Adjoined to this is a kitchen with the bare essentials to cook with. There is an L-shaped couch that turns into two beds where our kids...

I was also worried about staying here after reading the reviews. Some of you on here are just super picky, and for someone whose kind of picky this place was awesome. It was super clean the villas were big, they came to clean everyday, all the service people were great. We even had an issue with our safe and they...

I booked this trip for my boyfriend and i for our first vacation, we got a great deal so we went for it. I then read the reviews and literally lost sleep over them, immediately regretting choosing this hotel. I prepared myself for the worst, as described by the reviews. -When we got there, check in took 5 mins as...

Like many other reviews the staff here is the problem. I was hoping it wouldn't be as bad as in read but I was wrong. So pros first: hotel rooms are amazing, food incredible, and the beach is more isolated which we enjoyed. Drinks were great (when you could get a bartender to pay attention to you). So onto the...

We just returned from a week at Villas Playa Samara and like previous reviewers we had a good idea what to expect when we arrived. Must say we were pleasantly surprised with the lovely landscaped property and the size and condition of our garden villa. We were welcomed at the resort with a cool drink when we arrived and since...

The reviews I read on this place helped prepare me for the trip. If I had been expecting a luxurious resort I would have given this place a 1. But since I had an idea of what I was getting into it made the experience better. Definitely not a place for honeymooners or little kids. But I went with my...

We enjoyed our week at Villa Playa Samara. We rented (2) 2 bedroom villas for 8 of us. They were spacious and nicely outfitted. There was air conditioning in the bedrooms and new tile in the bathrooms. We spent our morning playing on the beach and saw wild horses strolling around. Then we would head over to the swim up...

...is all it would take to make this place better. The location is great as is the pool. I'm not a picky person, but some basic ammenities would be nice. First of all, some ice would be nice.

Booked a 1 bedroom suite . They overbooked and put us in a 3 bedroom suite with a family of 6 separated by a locked door. We heard everything including the children screaming. No compensation. The beach needs alot of improvements. Nice pool though.
