Nice. But a little farther from town than I thought.

8/10 Very good

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Sol Samara. After a bit of difficulty finding the hotel, we were checked in quickly, the room was fine, very comfortable beds, good a/c. We enjoyed the little pool. Breakfast was delicious as were the other meals we ate at the hotel. The staff were all super polite & friendly. We met interesting guests from several countries at the hotel.

The grounds/garden area are beautiful and well kept. It is a small hotel with maybe 20 rooms. Family owned and operated. The young lady (Natalia) at the front desk speaks fluent English and is very helpful in every way especially if you are not fluent in Spanish. The Internet in all of Costa Rica is not good (understatement). Very close to the beach but you have to walk past some old shanties to get there. The beach here is beautiful, water is warm and swimmable. A bit out of town so it is better if you have a car to get here and around the area.

6/10 Good

The property is old and run down! There are decaying boards in the walkway that are in need of replacement. The pool looks ok at first glance but when you look closer it’s just like the walkway. The room was clean but very old. The new tile floors and shower help distract from that fact at first. But the beds were mattresses only on 40 year old frames and are not very comfortable. The curtains would not close because they were torn at the top and needed replaced. There were a couple things that are pleasant. It was quiet. Probably because we were the only ones there. The food was amazing! I don’t know where they found their cook but he belongs in a much better restaurant The main thing that disappointed us the most is the misleading rating that was on Expedias sight. 4.3 for cleanliness was in the headlines instead of the hotels overall rating.
