Im not sure about the other reviews.....but I really liked this place and the French couple who owned it. I came in late on CR Mother's Day sans room. My usual go-to's were booked....Ive been in Samara about 15 times over ten years. For $40 US I got a clean privado with a shared bath. It was quiet, clean and...

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

I can't figure out why this place has a decent rating. Do NOT stay here! Very bad service. The woman at the desk was incredibly rude and not professional. It was a very unpleasant experience. I travel very often and this has been one of the worst. Save yourself the headache and trouble and stay somewhere else. NOT GOOD.

I can't say anything good about this hotel. Christine was so rude and so unprofessional. I mistakenly booked for June instead of July and wanted to cancel the reservation. I went thorough hell to do that, indeed. I finally rebooked for our stay for July and asked her to provide us a dust-free room since I have severe allergy. (I...

We had been hotel hopping in Playa Samara because we had a really bad experience at the place we were supposed to stay. On our last day we needed a place to stay and we were so happy to find Hotel Casa del Mar, even though we only stayed here one night. We really wish we would have booked our...

I had booked another room in town and when I got there, the room wasn't the type or price I had booked. I was worried because it was the Easter holiday week, but then I walked down the road and found this gem! The owner was super friendly and showed me the room she had. I had a cheap room...

We stayed here for 2 nights while in Samara and had a great experience. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the air conditioning worked well (nice when it was 100 F outside). The bathroom has a screen instead of a window so it wasn't cool (we kept the door closed to keep our room cool from the AC). That...

We arrived and were greeted kindly. Then we booked a bus to monteverde. That also went smoothly. The location is unbeatable. Later on we figured out that we got overcharged by 23$ per person for the bus ride. That sucked. Our toilet leaked. Upon mentioning, we were told that we were hallucinating and that it was ok when we checked...
