We have 10 rooms that all have a magnificent view of two different beaches as well as mountain and jungle views. All rooms come with: Queen-size bed, Air conditioning, Wireless Internet, safe, small refrigerator, private balcony with ocean view and hot breakfast included. We are located a short distance from Samara and the beach which allows guests to take short 15 min walk or an inexpensive taxi ride if they so choose.
As a local guide, here’s my 2 cents. First. NOT close to the beach. Not even close. No bar. No restaurant (besides breakfast. Yay!) anyway I tried to leave when the plumbing stopped working. Nope! It’s high season. You must stay and bathe in the...More
Thank Clint B

Hello Clint B,
Such exciting news that you have relocated to live in Costa Rica in the 7 months since you were here, and this matter was discussed. If you have not relocated to live here, I would caution representing yourself as some “local guide”....More
This lodge is situated in a beautiful place. We had a room with a view on the pacific. There is a nice swimming pool. The area where you can take breakfast is nice, also with a view on the ocean. But what makes the place...More
This hotel is just perfect.

Lodge Ranas is located in a wonderful location, as others have mentioned. We watched monkeys playing outside our room which had wonderful views of the Pacific. We did actually walk into town and we rented an electric golf cart to get around town although it...More
Lodge Las Ranas is located in the hills about the fab beach at Playa Samara. So you need a car to get to the town, but we loved both the quiet and the cool breezes up there. I think all the rooms overlook the town...More

As the previous person answered, taxis are realitvely easy to find for about $4 one way from the hotel to the beach. We can arrange shuttles for you to airports and other towns. Rental vehicles are the most common form of transportation for most of our guests. Having a rental also allows you to explore more remote beaches of which there are many in our area.

Was just there. No on the hammock. No on 'walking distance' but that means you don't have the loud noise of town--Las Ranas is high atop a hill with stunning beach views from some rooms, all have balconies. Rooms are GORGEOUS, each with its own private bath. Yes on air con and wifi, and a basic but well prepared fruit-and-toast breakfast. Additions to 'basic' prepared to order at minimal cost. Beaches are about four miles away--taxi would be needed, but taxis are cheap. Beautiful pool area with great views.
