10/10 Exceptional

First time in Costa Rica
We are enjoying our stay of 6 nights.Wonderful hotel and staff. Everyone is very accommodating and helpful with our many questions and desires. Breakfast is fantastic. The gardens are beautiful. It’s safe and quiet and clean. Some but not all tours pick up here. If you have a car that’s not an issue. Some of our time was spent lounging poolside after a morning event ( very hot during our visit). You can’t go wrong with a light lunch or drinks poolside. Great spot to chill before resuming your adventure in the late afternoon. Note:If you drive here come through Nicoya. The other road is bad. Waze wants to take you on the other road.

Amazing hotel
An amazing hotel! It’s our 2nd visit and we can’t wait to go back. Friendly staff, impeccable service in a beautiful garden with 2 main pools. Close to Carillo beach and has a very good restaurant for lunch and dinner. A must in the Samara area.
