My flight home through Houston was cancelled as a result of Hurricane Harvey's flooding, so my adult son and I had three extra days in Costa Rica. We booked Las Ranas on short notice and arrived before Noon to see if there was any chance...More
We are just coming to the end of our six night stay with our two teenage daughters and cannot praise this place highly enough. It is situated on a small hill a little way out of Sámara with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and...More
Lovely little hotel on the hill.

Lodge Las Ranas...is off the beaten path but beautiful view. No grounds to speak of. The rooms sit atop a hill just outside of Playa Samara. Roads are dirt, driveway is one lane and steep, but not a problem. I happened to be the ONLY...More
Nice lodge with incredible jungle and sea view. Very, very kind staff, superbe breakfast. You need some off-road capabilities to go there as the road is not in a very good condition. We saw lots of monkeys and birds next to us.

Was just there. No on the hammock. No on 'walking distance' but that means you don't have the loud noise of town--Las Ranas is high atop a hill with stunning beach views from some rooms, all have balconies. Rooms are GORGEOUS, each with its own private bath. Yes on air con and wifi, and a basic but well prepared fruit-and-toast breakfast. Additions to 'basic' prepared to order at minimal cost. Beaches are about four miles away--taxi would be needed, but taxis are cheap. Beautiful pool area with great views.
It's a fifteen minute walk along quiet roads/tracks. Another 5 mins along the beach to the centre of Sámara. The lodge is up a very steep drive. We have just spent 6 days there and walked some of the time and used taxis... More
It's a fifteen minute walk along quiet roads/tracks. Another 5 mins along the beach to the centre of Sámara. The lodge is up a very steep drive. We have just spent 6 days there and walked some of the time and used taxis (mostly at night) US $4 the rest.

"Las Ranas is about 1 km from Samara so very helpful to have a car. Lots of parking and just a short drive."
