Overall - the experience was good, 3-star - but the quality for price was poor. 130 USD per night was uninteresting. We stayed for 4 days, but the room was never cleaned. The power went out a few times leaving us in the dark (thank goodness we brought flashlights), but nobody came to inform us what was happening. Also, fireworks would go off in the middle of the night with no explanation, waking children up crying in the room next to us. Maybe Samaru will learn some tips on hotelerie from the new Marriott opening 500 meters away....

Ok place to stay right on the beach - you get what you pay for, room was clean and basic and didnt need more at that time, stayed longer because my friends arrived later.
This is is the perfect beach for beginner surfers if only they would take better care of it.
The staff is really nice, friendly and helpfull.
However we had the feeling that they are being exploited.
The Ocean is REALLY dirty and FULL of plastic bags we took kilos of plastic out.
The owner is money and women driven. When he gives classes, girls get that special attention and he likes to get really close (if you know what i mean) we've seen and heard girls complaining about his behaviour.

Such a good place to relax and learn surfing. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The price-performance is good as well.
The complete Hotel has been recently renovated. The breakfast is ok.

We had a wonderful time here in samaru beach house. Located next to the surf point, samaru offers great rooms with great price, and the most important -great service always with a smile.
When we left the place the staff was in the middle of recolouring and refixing the rooms, so there's much more to wait!

I stayed in Samaru for 2 weeks in October 2016. This was my second time there and I enjoyed the place the first time in 2013 so I decided to come back.
The staff is very pleasant and welcoming. They help you in every request you have any time of the day.
The room is very relaxing and the facilities in the room are relatively and well taken care of.
On this trip the restaurant of the hotel was still closed due to renovations but on my first trip I remember the food was amazing, especially the local dishes.
