We stayed here for a second time, the first was about years ago. The rooms are very clean, staff very helpful and pleasant and pool area is lovely and private. The hotel is well maintained and eco friendly. The best was the restaurant; we ate dinner there twice and both times were excellent. The waiter recommended the seafood platter and it was both inexpensive for what you got and super yummy. Cheers.

This is a small budget hotel on the Main Street in Playa de Samara. It has all you need; ensuite bathrooms, small bar and restaurant and two swimming pools. But there are annoying signs everywhere cautioning you against using towels to clean your bike or boots. There is even a sign in the pool loo suggesting you urinate in the bowl rather than the floor! This along with a $1 charge for a pool towel irritate and detract from the budget charm of the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The room was clean and simple with air conditioning and a TV. No blankets, just some simple bed sheets but that was okay since it was so hot there. (You can also easily ask for blankets from housekeeping.)The hotel itself has a restaurant in front with two small pools. The staff were nice and answered all questions I had. The location is close to the beach about a 5-10 minute walk.

Not the fanciest hotel I've been to in Costa Rica, but it's a good hotel for it's value and I would stay again.

My girlfriend and I spent 3 lovely days in Samara and we stayed at this lovely little hotel in Samara. Great breakfast was offered each day. Room was on second floor overlooking the swimming pool! We also ate at the Italian restaurant which is located on premises. Hotel is a short walk from the beach. Nice place to stay! I would stay again if I was in Samara!

Room Tip: We were satisfied with our second floor room.

I have stayed at Hotel Giada twice before & will probably stay there again. I love the town of Samara & Giada is my kind of hotel. It's clean & cozy & the grounds are beautiful. The tropical gardens make every view lovey. Sometimes you can see howler monkeys in the trees nearly, along with butterflies, a variety of birds & colorful lizards. The pools are nice & so is the restaurant. The breakfast included is tasty & served quickly with friendly service.
