I stayed at the Mirador last summer with my boyfriend. The apartments were exactly what we were looking for, enabling us to cook instead of going out to eat. We were there in low season, so it wasn't crowded, but Max and his wife and daughter were always around which made it feel very safe - we knew if we...

Myself and about 5 other friends stayed at the Mirador from Jan 29th to Feb 4th. I gotta say overall what stood out for me was the amazing view, the sun sets where spectacular. Another particular characteristic I really liked was that they where pet friendly, I've been travelling to Costa Rica for several years now and this is a...

We stayed here over the Christmas period and New Year. The location of the hotel is ideal for local amenities and the beach which is only a five minute walk away. Our room had a fantastic view of the bay and was very spacious. The staff were very friendly and Max, the proprietor, made us feel very welcome. One thing...

My family and I went to Hotel Mirador de Samara during New Years. If you visit Hotel Mirador it will be the worst experience you'll have in Costa Rica! The grounds were concrete with a thick coat of dust, the sheets were tattered and were a mouse grey color with a musty scent. It had a great location, just blocks...

I must say that this review is the most strangest that my hotel has received for about 20 years running. Either this traveler never stayed in the hotel Mirador , and had some information from a third person and mixed true and untrue details together. Or its just a simple way tto try to harm the buisiness 1..The swimming pool...

We were planning a quick getaway for last New Year´s Eve but we had the problem of not having anyone to take care of our 2 dogs. We remembered then that my brother in law has stayed at this hotel with his Golden Retriever and family and right ahead we reserved our spot. I must say the hotel is nice:...

My wife and I began our honeymoon in Sámara and were blown away by the view at this hotel. Rustic, and literally no a/c, but the proprietor, Max, was awesome and the view was stunning. Minutes walk from the beaches/town/shops/etc. Super low-key, unfortunately being a northerner (Minnesota) I needed a/c, but if you want adventure, this is the place to...

We stayed at the Mirador de Samara for one week and enjoyed it. Apartment is great with a million dollar view of the bay from our very spacious deck. No mosquitos and a pleasure to sit outside in the evening. Pool area was a bit disappointing with not much shade but, hey, there is 5kms of beautiful sandy beach only...

“All of the rooms overlook the ocean, might get a slightly better view from the top floor of the apartments, but it was nice to be on the ground floor because we could walk down to the pool from our room.”
  • Deck off our room, could walk down to the pool from here.
  • View of the howler monkeys from our balcony.
