We have stayed at the Giada in March 2012 and April 2013. We have enjoyed both stays. The hotel is relatively small, 25 rooms, not fancy, but very clean and comfortable. We have stayed at the back of the hotel both times and it has been very quiet. The hotel is far enough off the beach there is no noise....

Stayed 3nights, good clean accommodation, good service in restaurant eating there every night provided by efficient friendly staff. Near to beach, our room was at the back of the hotel, quiet. Don't know if the rooms facing the Main Street are subject to noise at night Will definitely visit again

For the price you pay (80 USD per night) you would think you are paying much more. The rooms are very inviting and private and the property the hotel is on keeps you feeling safe. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast included each morning is delicious! Just a short walk to Playa Samara and "main street"...

Best location in Samara. The hotel is clean, OK restaurant (everyone raves about it, even though its just OK) and the staff is very helpul. Coffee is great, but isnt it everywhere in Costa Rica? 2 pools were always clean. Rooms were spacious and "modern" for Costa Rica. Which means, if your looking for a small Costa Rica B&B style...

We were in Playa Samara for a wedding, and Hotel Giada was a good pick for a three day stay. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The road-facing restaurant serves tasty Italian fare for lunch and dinner, and 5 selections for the included breakfast. The restaurant is perfect for people watching, too. Nearby are banks, a grocery store, bodegas,...

I just stayed at hotel giada for 3 nights. It was a great experience. Playa samara is great traditional Tico beach town. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the beautiful grey sand beach of playa samara and was a lovely place to stay. The staff were great, lovely and really helpful with book tours or navigating the town......
