On arriving at Sámara Inn we were disappointed to see that it was nowhere near Sámara centre or beach. Website says 500m away but it was at least 1km. The hotel itself was nice, pool looked lovely and staff were friendly. Our room was basic but covered with dead ants. They could not offer us another room so we did...

Room gloomy. Rubber sheets on bed, no fridge. Restaurant only open occasionally. Breakfasts good. Had to go into village for lunch and dinner. Pool area very small and no shade for relaxers. No drinks available - no bar, no cafe!

Fairly new place and friendly front lobby staff. Room is nice, good air conditioning, keypad safe, including free breakfast. This part is good overall. On the negative side, our waitress is not very friendly. We asked for hard fried eggs and crispy bacon, sent the plate back twice as the eggs were still soft. The pictures and literature make it...

This hotel of about 14 units is very welcoming, clean, and within a short distance of the beach. It has an authentic Italian chef and the food was of excellent taste and presentation. The staff were fantastic and made sure we were given excellent food choices paired with fantastic wine (red and white). We were all delighted and , if...

Somewhere I read that if you spend some time in Sámara then you fall in love with this small little town. Well, that's true. I felt in love in a couple of days actually. We had the chance to stay at Sámara Inn and we had a great time there. This is a comfy, adorable, relaxed hotel in which we...

What a lovely hotel. The rooms are quite small, but have everything you need, including a hairdryer. The shower is ok, but not very warm. Breakfast was ok, but I had to send back my fried eggs as they weren't cooked enough. The small pool and jacuzzi were great and we even went for a late night dip to cool...

This is a new hotel, with lovely pool. It is five minute walk to Main Street, but considering that the whole town can be crossed in 10 min, it isn't much. The views outside of the hotel are breathtaking as well. Young-Yilang blooming, many flowers along the way, makes even a lovelier walk. If you're not into walking, the taxis...
