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.

After the manager in my hostel in Tamarindo confirmed me twice that I could take a shuttle bus to Samara the next day, I booked a room at Hotel Casa del Mar for the next day by booking.com. 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....

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...
