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...

The lodge is situated on a hill, therefore you have beautiful view over Samara beach. You do need a car to get to the center (25 mins), you could walk to the beach (15 mins). In front of the balcony we had monkeys, iguano's, many birds and coati's. Samara beach is clean and not very busy, you will plenty of...

We spent a week at a this gorgeous little hide away. Can't say enough good things about it. The breakfasts were fresh, hot and delicious. The room was clean all around. We had a fridge to keep any food we bought. The bed was comfortable, there was a ton of space on the patio where we drank our coffee each...

This quaint little mountain top hotel has spectacular ocean views of Samara and Buenavista beaches and is surrounded by the tranquility of the rain forest. The grounds at Los Ranas are like being at a wild life reserve with regular visits from Howler monkeys, Toucans, Parrots, Iguanas, Morph butterflies... and so much more. I was so appreciative of the friendly,...

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....

We spent 5 wonderful days at Lodge Las Ranas in Samara and the experience was absolutely great. Maurice and Anna welcomed us and were extremely friendly, engaging, and helpful. 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
