We spent 6 nights at Alta Vista in April 2016 (top floor, 1 bedroom unit). This unit is ideal for a couple or a family with 1-2 older children. Yes, you need to walk up several flights of stairs but the view and privacy makes it worth the short hike. The unit was spotless, fully equipped and had a wonderful...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for about a week back in April and it was an absolute dream. We had the upper unit and loved every bit of it. Truly a 5 star experience from the time we got there. I was so impressed by how well we were taken care of. You really cannot get a better place...

Condo Amapola was luxury at a reasonable price. We had everything that we needed in a beautiful setting. The rooftop lounge was the perfect spot to watch sunrise and the perfect spot to have an evening cocktail. Monkeys in the trees added to the jungle/beach experience. The pool was a great spot to cool off inthe afternoons and it is...

Alta Vista is an amazing experience. It has all the modern luxuries of a 5 star hotel and is set in a beach setting with monkeys in the trees out your kitchen window. The condo is impeccable inside and out with all the conveniences of a full kitchen and incredible views. Wi fi services is excellent. Water out of the...

The Alta Vista Condo in Samara has 3 units, each on one level. I took by family of 7 and rented 2 of the 3 units. In addition, we knew someone in Samara so we were able to see much more of Samara while we were there. The condo itself is so amazing. It is immaculate and the grounds are...

We stayed here Feb 6-13 2016. This place is amazing! Super clean, great view, and awesome staff. I can't say enough good things about Dennis. This guy worked hard the entire time keeping the place clean and very well maintained. It's just steps to the beautiful beach and several sodas (family cafeterias). We highly recommend this place. Super clean, relaxing,...

We stayed at Alta Vista , Amapola condo for 17 nights from 1 November. This was the fourth time in Samara and certainly the best accommodation we have had. The condo is well equipped, clean, modern with plenty of space. But the thing that really impresses is the wonderful views. We woke to the sun rise over Samara bay and...

This was our first trip to Costa Rica! The Alta Vista condo was perfect for us! We were on the top floor and woke up to an amazing view of the beach and at night we enjoyed our wine on the deck listening to the waves crashing on the shore. The condo had everything we needed to make it feel...

This is condo was perfect for our stay. We were on the first floor- very convenient to pool. And the roof top deck was a nice addition as well. Very well laid out floor plan. Laura was a fine host and took care of a couple of minor issues quickly. The views great and facilities met our needs perfectly. Close...

My husband, our adult daughter and I stayed in the Amapola condo, and it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy Samara. The whole process of making reservations and payments was smooth and easy with Patrick's help. We had previously stayed in a villa in town, and we liked Alta Vista better. The condo was tastefully decorated, clean and...
