Awesome place! Will not disappoint! Visited many times. Been right on the beach was an incredible experience for the whole family. Very close to the small town of Samara which offers many restaurants.

We stayed three nights at the Fenix a year go and had such a wonderful experience, we went back again a couple weeks ago. This time we stayed six nights and after another fine stay, we're thinking even more nights than that would be appropriate....More

Returning year after year to the Fenix I always feel at home when I’m there. The low key hospitality, tranquility, and simplicity of the place make it stand out from the more typical and modern places that drown out the sounds of life with ac...More

About
Description
Seven time winner of the Traveller's Choice Award for 2018, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2009! Thank you to all of our wonderful guests who stayed here and wrote a review. We received the Certificate of More Excellence in 2017. Our small beach-front hotel is a few steps from the ocean. Not an all-inclusive hotel. Our guests feel like it is their place “on the beach”. We have a covered BBQ and free use of boogie boards. Our pool is open 24 hours. Fully-equipped kitchens. Daily maid service. Laundry available. Screened upper and lower windows along with 2 ceiling fans in standard rooms. Deluxe has two AC units, TV and larger appliances. Great place for families and couples. Small enough to rent the entire hotel for birthday parties, retreats or small weddings. Less
