Recent Samara reviews

  • Great condo overlooking beautiful beach and town!

    "Joe and Mark, Thank you so much for accommodating us during our stay at your condo! We had an absolutely wonderful time in Samara, and would recommend that anyone visit this hidden gem in Costa Rica. When we decided to vacation in Costa Rica, we were hoping to find an area where we could relax by the ocean and also experience Costa Rican culture. Samara was perfect. Despite the idyllic beauty of the town and beach, Samara has not been overrun by the tourist industry that has captured many other coastal regions. Rather, it maintains the quaint charm of a small beach village. While we enjoyed several great meals at the various restaurants along the beach and throughout the town, the beach was easily the highlight of our trip to Samara. The water was so warm and pleasant, and the waves were large enough to surf but certainly not overbearing. We also rented an ocean kayak and paddled out to the island that can be seen in the photos. From there, we saw an incredible view of the Rich Coast of the country. Indeed, Samara is a special place. Your condo was the perfect accommodation for our trip to Samara. Tucked up on a hill overlooking the beach, we had unbelievable views of ocean and the short, dramatic, entertaining lightning storms in the early evenings. Also, as it was such a short walk to the beach (5 minutes) and town (under 10 minutes), the condo really is in an ideal location. The condo itself was everything we could have asked for. All rooms were very clean, the bed and furniture were comfortable, and there were plenty of places to sit and take in the vista through the panoramic windows. All utilities (including the coffee maker) worked fine, and there was plenty of storage space for food, clothing, and other items. Also, we were pleasantly surprised to find the vast, and impressively up-to-date, DVD collection! We were truly sad to leave Samara, and we intend to return. When we do, we would love to use your condo again. While the condo was perfect for our needs, what made our experience better was the service. Both of you (Joe and Mark) could not have been more helpful and pleasant while we planned our stay. Also, the property manager and staff at the condominium property were very attentive, kind, and accommodating. For anyone travelling to Guanacaste, I would highly recommend that they consider Samara as a destination and that they stay in your condo. I am sure that they will not be disappointed. Gracias por todo, y pura vida!"

  • Pura Vida

    "Casa Limon exceeded our high expectations. As others have said, the architecture is spectacular and the place is laid out beautifully. The kitchen makes you want to cook, and the dining room makes you want to dine in. That being said there are many great choices for eating out. The whole fish at Locanda on the beach was probably our favorite. Ma Ma Gui's makes the best thin crust pizza we've ever had. We arranged with Gerardo(the on site caretaker) via email to have his sister Lleana make a special dinner for us. Lleana made a delicious, gourmet, 4 course meal for us. We also arranged ahead of time for the 5 of us to have massages with Tod, Casa Limon's massuse. All 5 of us were impressed with his skill and knowledge and wanted more. We managed to get in 2 more hours of massage for 2 lucky family memebers. As others have said, it was really nice to have Gerardo nearby. One day the wifi wasn't working and he knew just how to reboot it, our sons wanted to rent surfboards on New Years Day and Gerardo just happened to have 2 surfboards they could rent, and he helped them tie it to the top of the jeep. I wouldn't have know that Jinny the housekeeper was there because she is so unobtusive, except that the house looked cleaner. With 5 adults it was really nice to have the option of walking to and from town even though we had a jeep. Everybody could come and go as they pleased for yoga classes on the beach, or surfing at the best time, or catching lunch at the bohemian cafe (a favorite of our crowd), etc. I musn't forget to say something about the pool. I didn't realize that the dining room/family room is totally open to the outside and thus the pool. We had an 18 month old with us and I panicked when I first realized it was all open. As it turns out the pool with it's steps entertained our grand daughter for hours every day , and it wasn't a problem at all because with an 18 month old you pretty much need to have somebody supervising their movement all the time anyway. We did feel that it would not be a place for 2 non swimming toddlers, but luckily we just had one with us. As you can tell from the pics there are some boulders that separate the pool area and it was easy to separate patio time from pool time. Rich, the owner was real helpful and easy to communicate with via email. I could go on and on, it's true Pura Vida!"

  • Spacious condo in a great location !!!

    "This spacious 3 bedroom condo came well furnished, well equipped and in a great location. The gated complex makes you feel very secure and the pool & grounds were very well kept. In fact one afternoon, we got to watch a large family of Howler Monkeys from the pool area, directly across the street, going from tree to tree, it was very fun to watch. We loved this place and would definitely return again !!!"

  • Gorgeous View!

    "This was the BEST place to stay! Like all the other reviews it was clean, safe, the owners are very friendly and helpful but left us alone. The view is breathtaking....I would stay here again in a minute! In my opinion, there's no better place to stay in the Samara area than here!"
