Recent Samara reviews

  • Wonderful stay, as described

    "We had a wonderful time staying at this condo in Samara! It was very much as described in the listing and the reviews of others. The owner and the local hostess were wonderful and helpful! The rooms were all very clean and the kitchen provided all of the essentials for us. If you go out of the condo complex to your right, there is a little grocery store and little café. The walk into the downtown from the condo is a little far for a quick meal or with many people. So we were glad to have our rental car. It is nice though that it was a little outside of town as Samara is a nightlife town and we enjoyed the quiet and rest. There's a beautiful view from the pool area of the beach and we loved the afternoon pool times. Overall, it was a quick but wonderful stay in Samara at this condo! I recommend it!"

  • So Relaxing

    "We love Samara, and loved this place. It is a little bit outside of town, which we weren't sure about, but we ended up really liking the location. The drive back to town and the Samara beach is about 10 minutes, and about the same to Playa Carillo. It's extremely private, with only this home on the property. The home is a great layout, with the bedrooms all along one side, opening to the patio and pool, and the kitchen and living area also open to the patio. The house is not brand new, and doesn't have high end appliances, etc., but is very classic Tico and charming. We had 3 families staying together and the space was perfect for us. The patio has views of the ocean and beach, as well as the surrounding woods on the peninsula. There were lots of animals on the property which we enjoyed. We saw monkeys a couple of times, as well as lots of iguanas, some bats, an owl, and many different species of birds. The caretakers were very friendly and helpful, and responded quickly whenever we called them. We loved this place -- it is the real unspoiled Costa Rica, and we will definitely stay here again!"

  • Perfect House for a C.R. vacation

    "After a year in the planning, our family vacation in Costa Rica was even more than we hoped for, and much of the credit is to the house, Ventana del Mar. The pictures on VRBO drew me in and the actual house more than lived up to the pictures. We were a family of 10, ages 8 to 80, and every one of us enjoyed the pool, slide, palapa and the always cool open air living space surrounded by trees and greenery. The bedrooms were spaced so we never felt crowded. The 5 minute walk to the beach made beach trips a daily delight, especially with the warm ocean and the boogie boards provided. And few, if any, other beachgoers. The house had everything we wanted or needed. Gerardo, the caretaker, answered all of our questions and helped us arrange outings and rides to Samara. It is a short walk to the grocery store and several restaurants so we never lacked for eating opportunities. An added plus was the quick response from Michael, the owner, to each of our numerous questions during the planning. Ventana del Mar and Costa Rica will always be a special place to our family. All 10 of us would highly reccommend it for a fantastic vacation.!"

  • MAR AZUL PURA VIDA!!

    "Estate Mar Azul met and exceeded our expectations. The swimming pool was a hit for the entire family. The views are amazing and the house is absolutely stunning!! Access to private beaches are a breeze as well as Samara for adventure days. Johnny and Theresa went above and beyond to make sure our stay was 5 star. The hospitality is second to none and we will most certainly be going back!!! I highly recommend Mar Azul. You will definitely not be disappointed."
