The drink of my wife was bad, there was plastic in the juice. We askes three times to get another drink. The owner was watching football and very uninteresting. The pool was very bad and we had to pay for it the double price. We would bot recommend this restaurant and hotel to anyone else.

We stayed there mid March for a night. The first time we went there was about 16 years ago, when the place had no pool. Since then we have been back a few more times , from 1 pool, to the current 2 pools. Their room/restaurant prices are not cheap for the area. But you do get an open, spacious... More

I will add one item regarding the good food. Whenever I eat out in Costa Rica I ask that my food not be prepared with Numar. Numar is a ubiquitous brand of Costa Rican margarine and I do not eat margarine. When the response from our wait staff was " we do not have Numar on the premises, only butter"... More

The Samoa is a place I will return to. You will not find luxery with fine linens and folks catering to your every need. You will find a clean, convenient and safe stay with a great owner who cares about his place. The wifi is in the lobby/resturant/pool area and is strong. The whole place isn't that large. This is...

Clean but dated room. There was no hot water. So if you like a cold shower in the morning, be my guest but that doesn't work for me. When we complained, we were told that there is only 1 gas distributor in CR and that said distributor had not filled the tank in 3 months. I asked why we were... More

The restaurant was awesome, as was the service throughout the hotel. They have a private marina which was very convenient for us and our fishing guide. The rooms were very roomy and clean, but the beds were a little hard for my tastes.

After a long trip from San Jose we were looking forward to some rest before taking off again in the morning. The deep base music of the bar continued late on into the Sunday night (actually until early Monday morning). Luckily we did have earplugs. The room may have been rustically nice at one time but deferred maintenance and poor... More

I stayed here with 2 more people for one night. It's a bit overpriced according to our findings on similar hotels but it's clean. A/C is noisy and the dogs won't stop barking. Food in the restaurant is ok, so you can eat there with no issues. For locals it might be a little overpriced, but still no problem. In... More

The bar is probably the best attribute of the Samoa....the rooms are overpriced and the food is only mediocre at best. There is plenty of shade so it a good place to go for a swim.during the daytime. Later at night evolves into more of a singles bar but beware of hustlers

Located on the main road in Golfito, with ample parking, a large open air restaurant, pool, and spacious comfortable rooms.
