My college age daughter, her girl friend and I traveled to Samara for surfing lessons. When our driver drove us up the private drive to Lodge Las Ranas we were thrilled with its spectacular views and privacy. The rooms were clean and accommodating in every way, hosting comfortable beds, small refrigerators ,fans, a/c and balconies with ocean views. The Lodge...

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and Las Ranas was recommended. It's quite an adventure getting there, but once you arrive the setting is quite magnificent with an amazing view of both the jungle and Playa Samara. While not on the beach, you can enjoy the peace and relaxation of this beautiful spot, and can enjoy the views...

We have traveled to Costa Rica many times and stayed at several B&Bs along the pacific coast and in the peninsula. Our experience at Lodge Las Ranas was by far the best! Cody (the manager/owner) went above and beyond, provided us with great insight into the area and excellent conversation, not to mention where to get awesome pizza delivery late...

This hotel was easily the best part of our Costa Rican holiday. The room we had was perfect, with an awesome view of Playa Samara. The tipico breakfast was excellent, and the staff was always friendly and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel on all levels.

When I first saw our room with its beautiful views of both the jungle (complete with a Howler monkey family) and the beach view I said "I think I found paradise." We were in Costa Rica for 2 weeks and this was my favorite place that I stayed. Cody and his staff do an outstanding job of making guests feel...

The pictures of this place do not do it justice. The rooms are beautiful and the view is jaw dropping. The staff is also super friendly. They attract wildlife through their kindness. We saw them bathe 4 toucans with the hose while there. This place is a fanatic getaway for a couple.

We liked this place. The rooms are a bit basic but the balcony incredible and the views amazing - we saw Toucans and monkeys. The pool was quite dirty and the entrance is a bit sketchy - very steep and not the easiest to navigate but the overall energy of the place is really good and it's a very nice...
