Before our arrival, we knew Lodge Las Ranas was about a 30 minute walk to the beach. Having obtained 4 local taxi names/numbers beforehand, our plan had been to walk to the beach each morning after breakfast, have lunch afterwards in town, and return by taxi to the hotel for an afternoon swim. We also planned on taxi service to...

Hello Bruce, I would like to thank you for your review. This feedback is a very important tool for us to provide our guests with an ideal stay. I personally believe it is unfair for you to rate our hotel with an average location. I believe this is unfair as it is not like we tried to hide our location...

Stayed here 3 nights at the end of February. All of the previous reviews have pretty much said it all, except that the rooms here are very romantic, with canopy beds. We loved sitting on the Costa Rican rockers on the balcony enjoying the views, the gorgeous pool, the lovely breakfasts and the caring staff. Our biggest treat was watching...

We love the beach activity in Samara; especially that the establishments allow you to lounge on their premises/beachfront all day long with no pressure to purchase; incredible! But you do, even if a sparkly water. And, we love to go to dinner there of course! BUT, as much as we like any live music offered, not so much to hear...

We spent six nights in the Lodge in mid-Feb. After a long travel day, with a three hr. delay in Dallas, we arrived in darkness into Samara. We contacted Cody and he met us in town and escorted us to his property. Great service to begin our stay, which continued through, until check out. The following morning, we were greeted...

I've waited a year, almost to the day to write this review. It has taken us a year to do it, but after visiting the LAS RANAS LODGE last February, we decided to make the move, and make the Playa Samara/ Playa Carrillo area our home.

This is a lovely hotel with helpful staff. We were greeted by Cody, the owner, upon check-in. He was extremely friendly and offered a lot of helpful advice about the surrounding area.
