The family and staff that run Hotel Casa del Mar were very pleasant and always helpful. The rooms are simple yet clean and comfortable. Our family of 3 very much enjoyed our stay. Great courtyard provides lots of shade and cooling pool for chilling out. Simple yet tasty breakfast included.

This was my second stay here, I stayed four nights. Perfect location right across the street from the beach. Comfortable air-conditioned rooms, and private bathrooms. The courtyard is beautiful with a really nice pool. Breakfast is included, and the staff are very very nice. They offer cushions that you can take across the street and use on their beach chairs...

My week stay at Casa del Mar was a very pleasant experience. I found the hotel staff to be polite and attentive. My room was very comfortable, clean and the air conditioner was a welcome extra as the week was mid-summer warm. Absent a vocal howler monkey outside my first night, the room was relatively quiet. Mornings we were served...

Loved it. Modest but really clean and in a great location across the street from the beach. Staff from janitor to kitchen to front desk could not have been nicer. Great breakfast. This is a small town where it is difficult to stay up past 9:00 but plenty of charm.

This was our third time staying here and we have always had a great experience. The location is excellent for access to the beach, stores and restaurant. There is a breakfast included which is tasty with various options to chose from.

Just after I booked, the manager knocked at my door, and told me that there was no shuttle service to Samara. I...

Two sisters own the place--one is very nice. Unfortunately, she is behind the scenes. The main one is just unfriendly and unpleasant. We had a difficult time on the price (note to self--comparison shop the price and be aggressive on negotiating the price). I asked for ice and she wasn't happy about it. She is just constantly watching and critical....

We stayed there for 3 nights. Very clean room, nice breakfast, great location in the centre right next to the beach. Our hosts were very helpful: told us what to visit, helped us book our next stop in Costa Rica, recommended some good places in town. Overall, a very good stay
