Great place, beach front location is a luxury. Very pleasant attention from owners, who always take care of whatever need you might have. Many restaurants and services nearby. Great to enjoy nice sunsets, friendly environment, the music of the ocean, the stars at night and walking on the beach. It is a paradise!!

Great place to stay! On the beach. Palm trees to shade you will you sit in a recliner or hammock. Does not get better!! Lots of restaurants and shops in Samara which is a short walk down the beach. We stayed in the deluxe room the only one which has AC, which we hardly needed, and it has a full kitchen. Nice! Phyllis and Bill the owners are very nice people and very helpful with what ever we needed. We had a great time, did not want to go. We will be back and stay longer next time.

We stayed at the Fenix for 5 nights and the stay was excellent. The rooms were big enough for a family of four, fully equiped with kitchenette so we could cook when we didn't want to go out.There is no a/c but you honestly do not need it in the evenings with the fan. The location is a perfect distance from the town and you can walk for miles on this gorgeous calm beach. The hotel is literally steps from the ocean with comfortable chairs and hammocks available at any time.You cannot get a better location if you want to be by the ocean.The view is amazing and we loved just relaxing on the gorgeous beach. There were toys, boogie boards for the kids.You could also help yourself to drinks on an honour system. The fruit truck would come by regularly but was a litlle more expensive than going into town but a good altenative if you did not have a car. There is also a fresh local seafood store a block behind where you can buy freash seafood and cook in the rooms. The ocean is very calm and excellent for children. We did have a run-in with a jelly fish but that is uncommon. When the tide is low you can snorkel right by the reef and see 100's of fish. Some of the earlier reviews complained about burning garbage and although there were some occasions that it did happen it did not ruin any part of the stay. Phyliss was very personable and you could ask her anything. Booking with her was very easy and straightforward. We had a wonderful stay here and would highly recommend it.

I walked the entire Samara beach from one end to the other and feel that the Fenix hotel on the beach was the best . My 10 nite stay was filled with relaxing in hammocks in the lovely beach garden, and many swims just steps away . I enjoyed my cozy apartment , and cooking many meals. The owners Phyllis and Bill were very helpful when I got there , very personable ., nice people. If I needed something I felt very relaxed about asking them.

Thanks Phyliss for your hospitality. We had a fantastic time at hotel Fenix. It has everything you need and a great location a short walk from town along the beach. Rooms were cleaned daily and there was a convenient room by the pool that had toys for the kids and a fridge with refreshments. I would definitely stay there again the next time I'm in samara.

Buenas dias Tanya and Family,

Many thanks for your review. Especially since you arrived the same day that ROBERT Z from Boston departed, and stayed in the same room as he did.

It was nice visiting with the both of you. Also nice that there were two other girls here for your daughters to play with.

It is people like you that makes this place great.

Hope you will visit us again along with your extended family.

Again, muchisimo gracias,

Phyllis @ The Fenix
