Samara vs Playa Samara

This feels like a silly question, but while searching for places to stay, I'm having a hard time figuring it out: are Samara and Playa Samara two distinct places?

No they are the same; Samara is the name of the town and Playa Samara is the name of the beach in front of Samara town.
