10/10 Exceptional

2 Days in Samara
Had a great time at Pension Playa Samara. The accommodations was very comfortable and the beds were great. The hotel is one block from the beach with awesome restaurants all in walking distance.

Pension playa Samara was a fantastic place to stay at. Very well located, close to the beach but not in the middle of noisiness. Facility is simple but clean and confortable. The staff are so helpful and will book a variety of excursions upon request. The pool is clean. They lend you towels for the beach as needed. Many Tico come to this hotel so you really soak in the culture. Breakfast is traditional and delicious. I highly recommend and hope to return if I ever have to occasion again.

Great cheap option in Samara
This place has a nice ambiance, comfortable and quiet. 4 minutes walk to the beach, and within 5 min walk to dozens of restaurant. Highly recommended.

8/10 Very good

We enjoyed our stay in Samara so much that we stayed 2 extra nights. The town is chill with great food and Pura vida vibes! Not too touristy, but still lots to do. The pension is a little older and outdated, but the staff is wonderful and the amenities are good. They were so helpful and friendly! There’s a great pool, games, AC, hot water, and a great substantial breakfast included. We had everything we could need for a great time at a fabulous price! We’d love to come back.

Really liked the open-air seating areas. Breakfast was good but simple. Staff is very helpful with planning excursions. Great location - close to the beach and downtown restaurants/businesses. Pool was murky so didn't use it. Appreciated the outdoor shower to wash off sand before heading into room. There is a lot of variation between room amenities - it would be nice if the website explained which rooms are upstairs because those are my preference.

It was a lovely place. Jocelyn is an excellent hostess. The amenities are stark, but just perfect for a small little hotel. One could use a blanket in the room, and maybe some updated sheets. Otherwise, all was lovely.
