Stayed here for 5 days in March 2017. Its very close to the beach and in the main part of town, so the location is excellent! Roberto, the owner and the other staff are wonderful, They have us recommendations on where to eat and booked transportation for us. Breakfast- although not included in the price- was great.

We booked for two nights - and stayed a week. After our first two nights, we checked around town to see if there might be a hotel with better combo of tranquility, comfort and value. We found none. We met a constant flow of people from around the world. The difference is the personable staff at Rancho who made us...

I love Samara Beach and this place was a nice little find. Great location and quiet. Nice breakfast, although not included. Bed and pillows uncomfortable. If you like to use a wash cloth, you'll need to bring one. We only got the shower temperature up to the edge of warm, but luckily the cool water felt refreshing in the heat....

We stayed in one of the rooms with two beds and shared bathroom and it was quite comfortable. The shared bathroom was actually really nice, with a great shower, and never had a problem with its availability. The beds were comfortable enough, the AC was great, and hotel property itself was very nice. The owners were friendly. Didn't really like...

My friend and I were lucky to book 2 nights at the Rancho De La Playa. The place is very well situated and quiet, away from the crowd. But still, only 3 minutes walk from the beach. The place has a great pool and small restaurant. The atmosphere is great. The room are very clean and the place is safe....

This was our third trip back to Samara and the first time we have stayed in town. We got one of the apartments offered @ Rancho de la Playa. It was fun to shop and cook in our "little place". The hotel had many comfortable places to eat outside, hang out in hammocks, or enjoy cocktails by the pool. We...

Had an amazing stay! The staff were really nice, very clean, great facilities. The kids loved the pool, the ping-pong table and all the outdoor spaces. There was every kind of accommodation you could imagine and the best price we found in the Nicoya peninsula. Thanks again for everything!

We stayed in the apartment above the bar area. Our 2 college-aged children loved the open lounge area to hang out away from parents and visit with other travelers or just read and relax. We wanted a kitchen and it worked perfectly for our visit. Buying groceries and fixing our own food was easy. Then we could go to the...
