Clean, well run hotel away from the main drag and close the beach. Nice rooms, good warm showers, quiet. Only point to make is the service is perfunctory, (not rude, but a smile would be nice). Recommendation: if at all possible, make your way to Playa Camillo, an idyllic beach away from the commercialism of Samara.

We thought that a hotel away from downtown Samara would be quiet and close enough to be convenient. We were wrong. The hotel is located on a long, straight, stretch of road with no speed bumps, and the locals race back and forth from their residences on noisy ATVs, motorcycles and automobiles. It didn't help that our room was in...

We stayed here recently for three nights and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are a bit on the small side but comfortable and very clean. We had a huge king bed which was great. The aircon worked well, a older style tv which was fine and wifi. There is ample parking which is needed and everything is a somewhat short...

Samara Inn is very clean with spacious rooms, a pool, and small outdoor lounge area, and a small restaurant on-site. It's located on a very quiet street about a 10 minute walk from the main town centre and beach. (I saw several bike rental shops nearby if you would prefer not to walk). Our room had a TV, air conditioning,...

The hotel has nice grounds and is very clean. The location was perfect for us. Short walk to town and beach but out of the way of noise. The pool was a great treat on a hot day. The included breakfast in the morning was very delicious. I would book again.

This hotel limited to the basics, but very clean. Hotel staff is very friendly. We especially enjoyed the quiet environment and the swimming pool. The town center with several restaurants is 10 min away.

This was our fourth stay in Samara Inn. We stayed for nine nights. The place is clean, chic and close to the center of town. The staff is courteous and are attentive to our needs. No one bothers us and just let us enjoy our stay. The breakfast, included in the price of the stay, is great. There are four...

We stayed 3 nights in March. The manager-ess was quite abusive to her staff. Very concerning. The rooms are small and were not cleaned properly. Location is good, a short walk from the village center. Food in restaurant was good Not convinced we would stay there again

We enjoyed one night at the Hotel Samara Inn. Large room, fun pool with fun people and good breakfast all at a reasonable price made it a good deal. A morning walk down a long road to the beach past a tree full of howler monkeys made the good deal very special.
