We were referred to this lovely small Hotel by a local Samara agency. We came to town from a big all-inclusive resort up north and wanted to surf for a couple days without trekking back & forth. We wanted to be as close to the beach as possible, but cool, clean, quiet and calm. This owner operated Hotel was all... More

The room was very clean, the A/C was working fine and there were no mosquitos at all in the room! The staff is more than friendly, the breakfast ist really good and included. It was quiet and next to the beach. You even get free beach loungers :-)

Casa del Mar is an oasis in the middle of a noisy, busy little town. We've stayed here many times over the last twelve years and have always had a good experience. Alas some of the things we enjoyed about Casa del Mar are no more. Don't get me wrong - it is still a great little hotel but it... More

Thank you for your comment but we want to bring some information on your comments because you give a false information. There has been never a direct access to the beach. The ground in front of the hotel was sold to part. It is a ground in concession. For more than 12 years, you should know that there is a... More

This is a great little hotel. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was tasty. Oh the location was perfect - right across the street from the beach and then when you wanted to unwind the splash pool was perfect. It would have been nice to have the restaurant open for dinner but there are... More

Excellent location, right across from the beach and two of the busiest beach bars in town. Added benefit to have use of the 6 wooden reserved lawn chairs on the beach (get there early to secure one). Very basic rooms and hotel grounds but very clean. Average breakfast. The pool is not a pool, more of a big bath tub.... More

This is a sweet little hotel located in the center of everything. It is not right on the beach which we opted for because of the night time noise from the bars right on the beach. This hotel is very "Costa Rica", clean and basic. There are only 12 rooms which all use a common courtyard and small clean pool.... More

Playa Samara is a great little surf town, just happening enough to be fun and not too much to be annoying. Most of the accommodations right on the beach are surf hostels with a couple of high-end places mixed in. This hotel is directly across a small street from the beach, so you just walk right out the open air... More

We got into Samara later in the day with no accommodation. We found Casa Del Mar. The location is great, rooms small, noisy and hot, pool small, breakfast good. The worst parts were the person cleaning the pool deck at 6:00am with a scrub brush. The noised echoed through the whole place and the noise that echoed through the room... More
