The location of this hotel is some distance from Samara Beach but a relief to from the hustle and bustle of Samara. The personal attention from Sherri and her dedicated staff was first class. So many extra touches that made you feel so very comfortable and relaxed. The breakfasts were excellent value and a great choice to suit all tastes....

Our room was clean and spacious, and the view from our balcony was spectacular, looking out directly at the jungle and Samara beach. Breakfast was also great, with several choices of...

I have to give a mixed review of this resort for multiple reasons. The rooms were nice and the staff was excellent, but not everything was glowing. The Good: All of the staff was very friendly, professional and helpful. We enjoyed watching wild monkeys on the grounds 2 of 3 days of our stay. The breakfast was enjoyable each morning....

The hotel is very pretty and the staff is outstanding. The pool area is nice, and we saw monkeys two days of our stay. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was nice. The water pressure was good and the a/c cooled the room quickly. That being said, the beds were very uncomfortable, and the sheets were pilled. The room...

In the middle of the jungle but with all comfort. Room are very well equipped and you can spot lots of wild animals. Staff is professional and giving good advise. Around the area you can do lots of tour as watching sea turtles or whale or dolphin

We stayed 4 nights in this place that offers a quiet relaxibg environment close to Sámara center. The rooms are well equipped but rather small (we were with 3 in a room). Breakfast is served in a nice place and quality is good. Some breakfast options are served but we ate all together with our group and this created some...

A beautiful place a short taxi ride from Samara centre, with sea views away from the noise and dust of the town. The owners are extremely friendly and will take the time to chat and offer advice on places to go and see - making it a very personal almost family service. Chatting with Maurice and Anna was especially interesting...

Las Ranas is a beautiful boutique hotel with fantastic views up out of the noise and dust of Samara. We have been traveling in Costa Rica for a month and we have to say that these rooms were the nicest where everything worked: A/C, fast wifi, hot and cold water, comfortable beds and all very clean and luxurious.
