This quiet, graceful B & B is my favorite place to stay - now 42 years visiting and working in Costa Rica. The breakfasts are outstanding - always including a starting plate of fresh cut tropical fruit. The rooms are clean and well maintained. And the owners absolutely wonderful hosts. Oh how I look forward to staying here again next year.

Room Tip: upstairs front room is the nicest

I found this mini hotel by chance as I wanted to stay more time in Samara and there was no further availability in the hostel where we stayed. La Mansion is well-situated on the quiet street close to the beach and center. The price that Marlene offered us for three nights was more than acceptable, in the hostel we paid the same price for much worse conditions and the breakfast was not included. At first sight I was impressed by coziness of this house and by the care and love that was felt in every detail. Our room no.2 situated on the ground floor was large and there were two ample beds and a big wardrobe. The bathroom was also very spacious and clean. But I was even more impressed in the morning when Marlene served us a very beautiful and delicious breakfast. She gets up every morning at 4 o’clock in order to cook it.. I think she might not do this just offering rooms for rent but she does it because I guess she really loves doing it. It seems to me that she treats every client as her dear guest. I was really charmed by this amazing woman and her beautiful and peaceful house. I would like to return one day to Samara and I will certainly stay at Mansion. Marlene, we love you!

This felt like home away from home! Thank you Marlene for such a nice welcome and for making me feel at home in your great B&B. Nice and quiet and just a few hundred metres from the beach - it’s a great spot. Wonderful breakfasts fuelled me for each day and I look forward to returning sometime soon.

Very friendly atmosphere, the
breakfast was perfect and the location was hard to beat. We stayed on the second floor in a room with private bathroom. The room was adequate but a little hot due to lack of blackout curtains and location on the second floor but the host provided an extra fan. The wifi only worked upstairs which was fine for us but kind of a drag for people on the main floor. Parking was available but it had to be tandem with another guest so we just parked on the street for ease. For $60/night, we were satisfied.
