Disgrace of a hotel. The first night we had cockroaches and ants all over our bedroom, and the hotel staff wouldn't switch us to another room. Instead, they sprayed RAID all over so the stench got to all of our clothes. The second night we found a scorpion in our room and not even then would they change us to...

Dear Guest, Thank you, on behalf of our team at Sol Samara Hotel , for taking the time to place your comment that will help us grow and improve.

Loved the architecture and design of this small hotel! Beautiful little pool, shaded, with comfortable table and lounge chairs. Room was basic but nice (though the bed was a little hard). Fridge in the room. No need to request hot water, though the shower flow was pretty weak. Breakfast was definitely light, but tasty. Staff were very helpful. Just a...

Low season, we were there with only 2 other couples for a couple of our 10 days. Friendly, helpful staff. Remodeling and painting in unoccupied rooms to keep looking nice. 5 minute drive to downtown Samara, 3 minutes to Carrillo. Breakfast included. Don't be put off that it is on a dirt road, most things are there. Had no difficulties...

This hotel made for a nice, last minute getaway! Very cute, small hotel but has all you need, even a mini fridge in the rooms. Air conditioning and fridge didnt work when we first arrived but was fixed shortly after. We walked on the beach to town, which was maybe 15 minutes. Free breakfast in the morning was ok. We...

Just outside of Samara is this small hotel. Nice atmosphere, good rooms including a small refridgerator. Seats outside of the room with a view to the garden. Close to 2 beautifull beaches. Breakfast is simple but good. We stayed in room Pura Vida which was very spacious for 3 people.

This hotel is great: A/C in each room, beautifully designed and maintained rooms, free breakfast, small but nice pool, and located about a block from Samara beach. They let us check out an hour late at no extra charge. The one thing to note is that it is not in the main hub on the beach. It is about a...

Sol Samara was a pleasant hotel at the tranquil end of Playa Samara. Our room was clean and comfortable - with chairs on the terrace to enjoy the birds and flowers. The covered outdoor dining room provided nice (if not terribly local) breakfasts. We loved walking on the beach (just a five minute walk from Sol Samara) with the all...

Nice small hotel, with all the basic needs covered. Excellent service and very close to the beach. It has a small pool in the back, close to trees that make a great shadow to chill out and have some drinks to enjoy nature.
