We took their only family room for four nights. Delightful hotel with lovely host couple. Pristine small pool in the centre of the hotel which has some shade pretty much all afternoon. Best breakfast we had in CR. highly recommended. The only changes I would wish would be a softer mattress and a harder shower. But otherwise lovely.

A very nice hotel on the edge of town, walking distance to the beach. The rooms and grounds are perfectly maintained and the hosts are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the available breakfast and convenience of the honesty bar. I think this hotel is a good value for the area.

You can easily walk to Samara Beach, and several other beaches if you are willing to do some hiking. Traveling with two toddlers is not...

A great place to stay and relax. Brigitte and Lothar are very friendly and helpful. They give you good advises where to go and what to see. A quiet and very cosy place, close to the beaches and restaurants. The rooms are always very clean and nicely decorated. Great breakfast.

The lodge is well located, away from the lively citycentre but everything is reachable easily by foot. The rooms are clean and bright and the breakfast delicious,...

The first thing we noticed when we arrived at Sámara Palm Lodge was how absolutely charming and beautiful it is. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well laid out. The bed was comfortable too, though there was only a blanket, no comforter. I like to really be covered when I'm sleeping, so I also slept with my jacket and a...

The owners of Samara Palm Lodge have created a little oasis in the laid-back resort of Samara. The rooms are delightful (although don't expect luxuries such as a TV, fridge or hair-dryer) and face a charming little pool, surrounded by plants and statues. There is a lovely, friendly atmosphere and the owners are constantly on hand to provide advice /...
