After reading some of the negative reviews, we decided to give it a try with an open mind and we are really pleased we did. We were there near the end of the high season so the resort was fairly quiet. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Diego and Pedro were amazing. Dixi was attentive and always made sure...

After reading some of the other reviews, I was a bit apprehensive about staying here. However, we received such service. The staff is kind, accommodating, and attentive. Dixie was especially conscientious about how our experience was going. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet getaway.

Stayed here as part of a "Monkey Tour" of Costa Rica, and were given a room that resembled a closet that was both dirty and in disrepair. When concerns were brought to the attention of management they did not seem to care. Told the front desk staff that the shower would not drain on three separate occasions, and kept being...

The location is beautiful but after a long drive we were very disappointed. Having upgraded we didn't expect to request the linen to be changed and the villa cleaned. It has the potential to be so beautiful but where is the management? When we expressed our concern we had to shout above the building work in reception. There must have...

This is a great location.It is small and friendly. It was nice to go to a place where they were not constantly playing loud Caribbean music. The first surprise was to see horses running free on the beach. Some of my best photos of horses. A nice walk to town on the beach,. Very safe. There is only a small...

When I saw the Playa Samara Villas in internet, I was very exited with my family because the pictures shows an amazing and comfortable place. At the time that we arrived to the villa that I booked, no TV in anywhere, just one air conditioner was working in the bedroom not other was in the dinning room, and the air...

When we got here, our villa was in rough shape. The sink leaked everywhere, the filter in the air conditioner was clogged with dirt, and the livingroom doors don't close completely. If you are pregnant, ask them to tape up the inch between the doors to avoid mosquitos, and the zika virus. The shower head shot water everywhere and our...

My name is Lili and I am 17 years old. Last night, my mother Louise and I came home from our third trip to Costa Rica.

Go there if you don't get bothered by 1. Bad/ smelly rooms (Our room had a sewage smell not sure how) When we complained, the guy on the front desk said 'with a straight face' "We checked your room and there is no smell", we asked for some room freshner and it took them 1 full day to get us...
