This hotel was extremely disappointing to us and we moved after the first night. We were booked here on a trip through Gate One Travel. We were to stay three nights here and expected it to be the same level as we had encountered previously. To start, the area is "rustic". You walk five to seven minutes down a dirt...

Hotel Sol Sámara is a little paradise situated in the midst of the locals 100 yards from the most beautiful 5 km long and wide, breathtaking beach Playa Sámara.

My wife and I recently stayed one night at Hotel Sol Samara as we made our way from Tamarindo to Santa Teresa. In short, we found this hotel truly delightful and to be exactly what we had hoped for. From the start, Leo and the staff were wonderful, helpful and accommodating in everyway. Our second-floor room was clean and spacious,...

We stayed 3 nights in January 2012 and had a great room. It was located on the second floor, and was at the back end of the hotel above the pool (I think the room was called Pura Vida). The room had 2 doors that opened onto the deck/porch that had lounge chairs overlooking the grassy area. In addition you...

Hotel Sol Samara is located in between the town of Samara and Carillo beach. It is best to have a car if you stay here. It is located in a residential area. If you want to sleep bring earplugs. The dogs bark all night and the roosters start crowing at around 4 am. It is about one block walk to...

We went for a weekend in June with all the family (even grandpa). We had a great time, the hotel location is perfect to walk to the beach (100 feet probably). Rooms are pristine, service is the best. The breakfast and all meals we had were just over the top. Would recommend this hotel any day of the week.

I loved to stay at this wonderful hotel. The rooms are clean, the service perfect and always helpful when you need but at the same time not all over you and your plans.
