We spent a wonderful week at Lodge Las Ranas & it couldn't have been better. It is a very private & peaceful setting located close to Samara beach & town. The hotel was very clean and immaculately kept. Our room was perfect, with amazing views of the jungle & the ocean. We woke up every morning and watched the sun...

Very nice and peaceful hotel. We loved that the monkeys live so close by and no one bothers them, so they can live freely without fear. The rooms are very beautiful, with a big terras and a nice badroom with a mosaic floor. Staff is very friendly. The only thing we didn't like, was the rather dangerous drive way up...

This is a pleasant enough place but we felt the facilities and the rooms didn't match the price. Location was beautiful but out of town and as there is no restaurant you either have to get a taxi or drive into town yourself.

This hotel was definetely the top1 during our Costa Rica trip. Location is great just few kms from Samara services (incl. main beach with bars, shops, restaurants and Buena Vista beach which is a secluded beach just next to village etc etc). Also we highly recommend to visit nearby beaches of Barco Quebrado and Barracona if u want to have...

I can't say enough about Lodge Las Ranas. My family enjoyed our stay so much we have inquired about returning for a month! We felt a sense of serenity, comfort, and relaxation during our stay. From sitting on the balcony enjoying the "view from the top" of the ocean, to watching the sunset over the water, to spotting howler monkey's...

We stayed with our kids 3 and 6 years old for six nights. The pool and café area was perfect with nice view from the hill, howler monkeys climbing outside the room balcony. The pool had a quite big part where the kids could reach the bottom and you could stay in the shadow of palms and trees if you...

Perched on a hill and a long walk from the beach in Samara, the lodge was somewhat disappointing at first glance. Luckily, we drove. After a good night's sleep, we began to appreciate its distance from the tiny town, no television in the room, no restaurant or bar, but the pure sound of silence, and the view of the forest...

Our stay at Lodge Las Ranas could not have been better. By far the best part of our stay was our host, Shelly. Not only did she accommodate several last minute changes to our reservation with total flexibility and kindness, but her recommendations for local activities and patience with our questions truly made our visit a perfect one. We took...

We were planning to stay in Samara just one night but wound up staying two - in large part because of Lodge Las Ranas. Our room was perfect for two people, with a lovely balcony (with rocking chairs) and comfortable beds. The location is peaceful and quiet as it is up on a hill, about a 5 minute drive from...

My wife and I have stayed here several times. The lodge is located on top of a tall hill that overlooks 2 beaches. Standing on the rear balcony of our room felt like we were in the canopy of the jungle, with the pacific ocean in the background. It was not uncommon to see monkeys, toucans, iguanas or other wildlife...
