The "Hotel Paraiso del Cocodrilo" is a full-service hotel, and not just a guest house or B&B. It is located within the beautiful Costa-Rican countryside, 3 miles further north from Samara, and 900 ft distant from the turtle beach Playa Buena Vista. Playa Buena Vista is the next beach up north to Playa Samara, close to the gorgeous white sand beach Playa Barrigona, where you can even see a nice waterfall (during rainy season). The reception is open 24 hours a day, and the daily housekeeping is already included in the price. Each room and appartment has a privat bathroom, AC, and a refrigerator. The "Paraiso del Cocodrilo" has a Restaurant with a Bar and offers free Wifi to all the guests.
