I would recommend that the patron do not allow non hotel guests to come and use the pool as it really interferes with the "paying" guests experience. The staff is extremely nice,...

I think that title tells you everything! We first came to Samara Pacific Lodge in 2014, and really loved the place. So when we returned to Costa Rica this year, we knew we had to make a stop here again. Because we had been here before, and because it is close to Liberia, our city of departure, we decided that...

The hotel is well located, good reception, the drinks are perfect for vacation. It is very family oriented. The restaurant is excellent and is worth its reputation! I would go back anytime and recommand it to my friends.

The hotel is a tad outside town but easy to find. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. A special thanks goes out to Pierot who really made our stay so much more enjoyable. Keep on smiling😀.

Great food - had the mahi mahi and the shrimp choices for this evening. Since we did not have a reservation, we were seated upstairs away from the main seating area and were somewhat neglected. Did not feel good. Moral of story - make a reservation.

We stayed here for one night and we're impressed by the owners and staff. The rooms are clean and very nice most with a back patio which is a great morning coffee. A delicious full American Breakfast was included . Nice restaurant. A little removed from downtown.

Nice hotel on edge of town. 14 rooms, pool, and they have a restaurant with high ratings we were planning on going to but found out it is closed on Sunday. Very poor internet. Basic breakfast, however the bacon was very good. The shower had a unique electric heating element attached to the shower head, but it didn’t work well....

Very professional restaurant and nice establishment. Impressed by all the people coming just to eat there. Kids loved it. Pool was refreshing after the walk from beach. Breakfast was nice to get there. Loved the fresh juice. Clean.
