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!"

  • 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."

  • Fantastic location and villa!

    "Having never been to Costa Rica before we didn't know what to expect but Jacqueline assisted us in every possible way! I wouldn't change a thing. We had a fantastic breakfast prepared for us each day, assistance in setting up transportation and activities throughout our stay. We can't wait to come back and learn more about this area of this country!"

  • 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 ;)"
