“What you see in the photos is not always what you get. Just OK.”
Reviewed 25 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

To be clear, this condo met our basic needs. We stayed 5 nights. The unit was very clean upon arrival. The a/c worked, although loud.....check to make sure it works when you are with the manager upon arrival. We had to use our travel clock batteries for the a/c remote or we would have been left in the heat. The location was good, just a short walk to the beach area. Samara is a very small town. Around the corner, we found an excellent bakery (Roots) for daily breakfast eats/coffee. The outdoor plunge pool was nice to come back to in the late afternoon......very refreshing. Samara was 35c /95% humidity when we were there. Very hot. There were outdoor couches but the coverings/pillows were dirty & sun faded, all the luster lost.
My husband found the bed comfortable, I did not. It felt like a futon mattress & I usually prefer a hard mattress. It's a queen bed not a king. The blanket coverlet had a hole in the centre/uncomfortable, limp pillows which reminded me of my hostelling days. The interior is huge but really drab & sparse. It felt more like a government institution facility rather than a glam, eco-chic condo, that's for sure. I found the hard grey concrete floors so unappealing. The entire bathroom is grey concrete & the counter tops in the kitchen area also grey concrete. Wait long enough, and you'll get hot water too, not that we needed it. The sparse furnishings were basic & the lack of colour made me glad we didn't spend much time in the condo. The lighting was so low you couldn't even read a book in the evening. So depressing compared to the other accommodation we had during our visit. The property manager even let us borrow one of his lamps while we were there just to give us a bit more lighting. There was a TV which was wonderful if you could understand Spanish. I have rented many condos over the years & have found all of them with great extra amenities like beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, even yoga mats & extra hats.....those sorts of things that just make your vacation more enjoyable. A bonus when you are renting someone else's place. I asked if there were beach towels & the manager told me we receive two towels each for our 5 day stay so I could choice where I use them. For the cost of our stay, I would say The Logan could have done better with amenities/decor & lighting. There wasn't cleaning supplies or extra garage bags, no shower amenities, nothing. I think if you are staying for an evening or two, you wouldn't have any issues. We travelled 3 weeks in Costa Rica and this was our last leg.......5 nights was just too long at this place. We wanted the Tree House Resort on the beach but it was fully booked. Check it out, we did & loved the character. We wanted to say the Property Manager, Elias was very helpful during our stay. He was just a text away. Trust me, he went above the call of duty & we are most grateful for his help.

“Amazing & memorable - we will be back!”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We initially planned to stay at The Logan for three days and ended up spending our entire 7-day vacation there - we honestly knew we wouldn't find anything else as nice. The accommodations were chic, clean and comfortable, and the AC was a lifesaver. The Logan's best feature is the saltwater pool- perfect for lounging! There is also a grill. Elias, the property manager was the best and extremely helpful and answered our 1000 questions and helped make our stay great. We hope to make it back to the Logan soon!

“Great accommodations at The Logan”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We loved the Logan, our family rented two apartments for our extended family and had lots of room. Elias was great with advice on where to go in Samara and often checked in in case we needed anything. Location was perfect, though we had a car to get around other parts of Costa Rica, we never used it to go out to eat or the beach. Thanks for a relaxing four days, and the early morning greetings from the howler monkeys. We only wished we stayed longer and would recommend this to anyone. We hope to see you again!

The Logan is in a great location on the outskirt of town. Very easy and quick walk to the beach, grocery, activities and many, many restaurants. Convenient to get to the beach to go for a run every morning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
