The rooms are small and spartan (there are apartment units that looked nicer). We reserved two rooms with warm water and air conditioning. The warm water is delivered by the instant heaters at the shower-head that are typical in Latin America. The installation of these is subpar; people were shocked in both rooms while showering. One room had an a/c unit too loud to use while sleeping, but could be used to cool the room before returning. The other room had no a/c. On Friday and Saturday nights, the music from the bar next door is pretty loud until 2:00 a.m. or so. The location is great, but it seems that most places on Playa Samara are. The restaurant with the same name is great (best 'Pescado Entero' we've ever had in C.R.), but we heard the restaurant and hotel were run separately. They allow dogs and had rooms available, which is why we ended up staying there. We loved Samara and will definitely go back, but will try somewhere else next time.
