Writing this review while sitting on the beach and enjoying a lovely breeze and incredible view of the ocean.
As most of you reading reviews on TripAdvisor, I was very hesitant to book this hotel, a lot complained about service, rooms and other things.
We stayed at Hotel Villas Playa Samara for three nights as part of a tour. We had paid for an upgrade for an Oceanside Villa but when we arrived we were told that we couldn't have as they had given that room to someone else....More
We travelled March 3-10, returning to Toronto last night. Generally we stay at larger resorts that offer more amenities but this resort was perfect for us. We nearly cancelled at the last minute based on the negative reviews, but we were so pleasantly surprised. Although...More

we had a hair dryer in our room 2702 - but the outlet stopped working part way into out trip - I was able to move to the plug just on the outside of the bathroom and still see the mirror so that worked fine though a bit inconvenient. We also brought our own snorkel gear though never really used it - we brought our own floaties and just floated around on the water and used our flippers to move us about!

Aug/Sept are both about the same. It's the rainy season there so it can be pretty hit or miss. We got lucky last Sept and had great weather for four days. The week before it had rained hard for five days. It's a total gamble.
AUGUST is in the middle of the rainy season but there is a lull in the rain at the end of July & beginning of August. This is especially true of Guanacaste. The Caribbean side is solidly in the rainy season weather pattern with some rain nearly every afternoon and/or evening. August us a great time of year to visit Costa Rica if you have some flexibility in your travel schedule. August tends to be a quieter month and there are often deals to be found in the country if you don’t mind a little precipitation and are on a budget:
SEPTEMBER is a rainy month on the west coast and throughout the mountains of Costa Rica. The Pacific beaches and central valley regions get significant rain. This generally comes in a pattern of sunny mornings followed by showers in the afternoon or evening. The South Pacific and Osa Peninsula areas are inundated by days or even weeks of continuous rainfall driven by westerly winds. The Caribbean side of the country gets a break in September and October.
