Recent Samara reviews

  • An unforgettable winter holiday.

    "Casa Marlanda was everything we expected and more. It is a spacious, comfortable, well decorated home and we especially enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen! We will miss waking up to the sound of birds and howler monkeys and early morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the pool and laguna. We were amazed by the number and variety of birds. We chose not to rent a car and enjoyed the early morning walk along Playa Samara to yoga class and the gym and to shop. The pool was always refreshing to cool off in and Playa Carrillo is also within easy walking distance. Dean was very helpful in answering our questions and giving advice before our arrival and even e-mailed a few times during our stay to see if we needed anything! Christopher and Brenda at Samara Info Centre were friendly and helpful and arranged tours for us throughout our stay. Alvaro at Samara Trails offers a hike through his property with lots of info about the local dry tropical forest. We would recommend this tour. Local people were friendly and helpful. WE really didn't want to leave at the end of the month."

  • 6..7...8 stars !!!! AMAZING !!!!!

    "We have to first say it was not an easy thing to write a review on Casa Las Nubes since all previous guest had already shared everything that we wanted to share about this master piece of architecture or if you prefer this breathtaking eden of peace and beauty. My partner and I are both mid 30's French Canadian from Montréal. We had one full week to enjoy and live at Casa Las Nubes at the beginning of our 3 weeks trip in Costa Rica. I will start by saying that I’m known among my friends and family to be very difficult to impress and satisfy in terms of “accommodations". In other words very picky…;) The minute we contacted the owners with our initial questions we had regarding their property we felt something different. They did not want to simply rent their house. We felt they wanted to share the experience of their house with us. This house is so special it's an experience to live. It became a big highlight of our trip. When we first arrived to the property, and walked up the stairs that leads to the first breathtaking point of view of this house, I told myself and my partner that this would be a week of a lifetime. The minute we walked thru that entrance we felt like nothing else mattered… It was just to good to be true… Every morning we would pinch ourselves sitting around the infinite pool and just starring at the amazing views… Listening to the wildlife surrounding and living in front of us. It was so relaxing, so rejuvenating, we were able to really disconnect from our busy stressful work lives and take a moment for ourselves… The sunset … floating in the pool with a drink and some clouds sitting in the mountains in front of us was just one of the best memory we will keep. Even if some days we would go out to visit the area, beaches & Park, we would come back early just to make sure we would be able to enjoy the end of the day at the pool. Dany the house caretaker was very nice and welcoming! We even downloaded an app to be able to speak and translate live with him ;)) We asked him few things and when he did not knew he would get back to us later. We felt like friends visiting. His son made us smile and welcome us every time we pass by the gate at the entrance of the land. We will be back for sure !! We wish all future guest to enjoy as much as we did. On this day of Canadian Thanksgiving, Darryl & Michael, we will never thank you enough for letting us share this dream of yours. Merci encore mille fois et à très bientôt ;)"

  • Fantastic Experience!

    "We visited Casa Colibri and Samara in June 2014 with our entire family ranging from age 5 to 75. The house is beautiful, beds are comfortable and the view is amazing! I truly miss waking up to beautiful sunrises and to the sound of the howler monkeys. We prepared most of our meals at home and spent the days enjoying Samara and the surrounding areas. Four in our group attended the local Spanish immersion school and found the experience extremely valuable. In addition to the Spanish classes, we rode horses, hiked in the beautiful reserve behind the house, kayaked, fished in the ocean and enjoyed the zip lines. Mary Ellen was extremely helpful and was quick to answer our questions and provide us all the guidance we would need to navigate around the area. I do have to say that Daniel, the on-site caretaker is a gem. He was there to help us with any questions or problem that we encountered. For example, one morning we had a flat tire - as we were attempting to put on the spare, he asked us to wait since he had all of the tools to repair our tire at his disposal. That saved us an entire day of our vacation. On numerous occasions, Daniel went out of his way to make sure that our vacation was a memorable and enjoyable experience. We are definitely looking forward to visiting again."
