We stayed at Lodge Las Ranas during our stay in Samara. We were so happy that we did! What a great place! The breath taking views, friendly staff, and delicious breakfast made for a wonderful stay. We were so happy that we stayed in the hills instead of in the town. There was A/C, which we didn't even need because...

Highly recommended. Nice people running it and a beautiful property with great views. The Lodge is far enough away from downtown to avoid the noise and hustle, but close enough that you can get to the beach easily. We came back here a second time after being disappointed with the options in town.

The place was really beautiful and comfortable. Fantastic breakfasts. Staff was very, very helpful. The one thing to be sure of is being this far out. For us, we did not want the noise from the bars in town -- I am a light sleeper. But the trade-off is that you need to get taxis back and forth. If you...

We arrived after driving from Arenel Valcano region. Our first time in Costa Rica the road was great. We were greeted warmly by Katianna (sorry if spelled wrong) who was very helpful telling us about town. We were very happy with our room and the fast acting air conditioning. We loved the view and all the monkeys! We hope George...

This lovely small hotel is welcome after the noisy downtown Samara.It is situated up a steep drive a little out of town. The staff are very friendly and helpful with any needs or advice.

This family-run place had everything we were looking for in Samara--boutique hotel with warm, individualized attention from the staff. The innkeepers live there which really made the whole place feel like home. Maurice, who lives there with his family, and Cody, were so helpful and attentive. The staff here made our stay feel really special. Breakfast is included, which was...

We absolutely LOVED LOVED this place. It's situated high up in the jungle away from the town. It is probably one of the most peaceful places I have ever been and stayed at. The room was beautiful and had a balcony. We sat on the balcony every morning/evening where we saw the jungle, ocean, as well as were able to...
