Recent Samara reviews

  • Breathtaking views, stunning sunsets

    "We recently returned from an amazing family vacation in Costa Rica, and our stay at Hacienda San Fernando was amazing. The house far exceeded our expectations! The views from the main house are breathtaking and included daily stunning sunsets, visits from local wildlife, and incredible natural beauty. The pool and outdoor area was perfect for our group of 9 to relax, eat, play, and enjoy our time there. The main house is also beautifully decorated and comfortable on the inside, too. The master bedroom was spacious and has a fantastic attached bathroom with a semi-outdoor shower. We also especially appreciated the caretakers, Freddy and Luisa, and their adorable son, Ivan, who enjoyed teaching us Spanish and gave us great tips about local beaches. We loved the town of Samara, and had fun kayaking, dining, and exploring local beaches. We hope to return to Hacienda San Fernando soon!"

  • 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."

  • Location, Location, Location!!!

    "We are a family of seven, ranging in ages from 7-44. Villa Mirador is amazing!!! Trust me, the pictures are awesome, but do not truly do the property justice. If you're not careful you will get an uneven tan as you stare out over Samara and the Pacific Ocean from the infinity pool. The grounds are beautifully kept, all while allowing the natural dry forest to flourish around the villa. This allows for you to be one with nature and see Howler Monkeys, Iguanas, and beautiful birds all within reach. Daniel and Anna, the caretakers at the property, were lovely and very helpful. We really had a great family vacation, memories that will last us a lifetime. We cannot wait to return to Samara and Villa Mirador."

  • 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!"
