We really enjoyed our stay here in December. The manager couldn't be any nicer and we all loved the breakfast. I heard dinner is quite amazing, but we didn't get the opportunity to try it during our visit. The property is in a great location- not far from the beach or town. Parking is a bit tricky as you have...

Great location. Short walk to beach or town. Great hosts who speak English, Spanish and French. We really loved this place. Close to town but not the noise and crowds. I recommend room 14. A corner room with a small patio and a view of the farm land behind the hotel. Pool area is beautiful and the pool was spotless...

We stayed 5 nights with our 2 kids. It is very well located with 3 access to the beach and close to Samara center. Clémence and her staff have been really nice and helpful. The place is nice and quiet with an excellent breakfast. Enjoy.

French owner, so most of her guests are European - very cool and quiet. We were in town or at the beach so not too much to add here, we were happy and would recommend to other travelers..... ................................................................................

This hotel felt like home away from home. The owners and staff took great care of us. The owner went above and beyond. She informed us about various events in the area and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious and cocktails were a great plus.

My husband and I stayed here in August. The lodge was beautiful and comfortable and staff were very accommodating. It is situated in an ideal location in Samara - a 5 min walk to the beach, and a 5 min drive to the small town. There isn't loads to do in Samara but the lodge was perfect for chilling and...

After 10 days in CR, we had come to conclude that hotels were more expensive than in Europe but less comfortable. Settling in our room here was such a relief. Excellent value, with a new bathroom, comfortable bed, good A/C... Wifi was in common areas, close to reception, though; didn't work well in the room. Nice pool, very nice managers,...

We stayed at the Pacific Lodge for a week at the beginning of July. Two families, two rooms, 4 boys + a whole lot of energy. To be blunt - we could not have asked for a better experience. The staff and ownership were fantastic, the facilities fitted our needs perfectly, and the atmosphere was +++ family friendly. To list...
