Our family stayed here in December and it was fantastic! The rooms are bright and clean. The views of the ocean are incredible! There is lots of wildlife to see and we even had a troop of monkeys parading through the trees. The pool and sitting area is great with amazing views

We stayed at Lodge las Ranas in November 2018 and instantly fell in love with the place. The setting is beautiful - high above the town of Samara. We were greeted by the owner, Shelley, who made us feel very welcome the minute we arrived. Shelley and her staff, Diana and

Small but nice units in a beautiful setting! This really felt like you were in the middle of nature. Each room had a balcony where you could sit out and enjoy your surroundings. The pool area was lovely. Cody and Bryan were friendly, charming, and extremely helpful (not to

This place offers a haven of quietness in Samara. View is nice at 360 degrés and the rooms are lovely. But that’s not all! The real asset is Bryan, the receptionist - our should I say travel expert - offer nice advice to travel around, adresse in Samara, always with a smile :-)

It's not possible to sort out just one or two things that make this place so relaxing. The owners and the amazing staff are a huge part of it - wonderfully easygoing, always helpful, always kind, and ready with a great story or directions or information. It is just far enough

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.

How far is the beach?
It's a fifteen minute walk along quiet roads/tracks. Another 5 mins along the beach to the centre of Sámara. The lodge is up a very steep drive. We have just spent 6 days there and walked some of the time and used taxis (mostly at night) US $4 the rest.

"They advertise to rent a vehicle. Might I add a 4x4. Some roads are bumpy. We were in Room 6 but Room 5 I think has the best view. Grab it!"
"We loved the apartment room we stayed in. It had a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and a great patio."
"Wonderful views, room 5 definitely has the best, rooms 9/10 are away from the pool and other activity."
"Rooms 2 and 5 have the best view"
"Las Ranas is about 1 km from Samara so very helpful to have a car. Lots of parking and just a short drive."
