Wow, this place is so beautiful and amazing. We stayed in the house with 9 friends and we had the best time. We each had out own bedrooms and we shared kitchen and a private pool. Roberto has private dinners 2-3 times. week and we participated in two of those. I cant even go on enough about this place. It is amazing.
Our group of 10 stayed at Villa Kamar and it was truly memorable. It is hard to see from the photos or videos just how special this place is. It offers privacy, yet it has a central gathering place for our whole group. We enjoyed dips in the pool, cooking meals together, and having spectacular meals onsite especially for our group by owner/chef Roberto. It was also literally across the street from the water and centrally located, yet never too noisy. We were a group of 3 adults and 7 teens and it suited our purposes perfectly. I would love to return one day! Highly, highly recommended.
We brought a group of 7 teens down for a Spanish learning program with Intercultura and stayed at Villa Kamar. It could not have been a better set up for us. Rooms for the kids and two adults. A beautiful pool and garden area. A central area for cooking meals, eating together, and hanging out/playing games. It is located just steps from the beach and ocean with everything in very close walking distance. Roberto, Diego and the staff were unbelievably wonderful. We couldn't have asked for better. When you stay here, you must have one of Roberto's beautiful, delicious home-cooked meals. Best food in Samara! We loved it here!
Villa Kamar was the perfect place for our whole family to celebrate Christmas together. With a 5 star villa to stay in, we enjoyed every moment we spent there..from scrumptious meals prepared by owner Roberto to relaxing by our own private pool, to experiencing the beautiful ocean beach right across the street, to the friendly town of Samara... this place had it all and then some...PURA VIDA!
My husband and me stayed in Kamar and like last time everything was perfect !!!
Not to be missed when the friendly owner Roberto, organizes tasty meat or fish dinners of traditional Italian cuisine. Usually we don't return in the same place but... we come back here with pleasure.
What can I say? Roberto and his staff are the best hosts you could ask for! Our large family stayed at Villa Kamar and it could not have been more perfect. We were able to have our own private rooms and bathrooms, yet could hang out together in the generous common spaces if we wanted to. To have a pool to ourselves was a luxury, and made our trip even more relaxing. As for the location of Villas Kalimba/Villa Kamar, it could not have been better. Samara is the perfect town to kick back and relax.
Ciao Roberto......until next time......xxoo
PS: Do yourself a favor and have one of Roberto's dinners. Or two!
We have visited Kalimba, Kamar (august, 2016) and this January 2017 visit was in Villa Sandy, (all under care of Kalimba owner). As always the visit is envigorating while being so relaxing. The salty Pacific and surf is across the beach road. Zip lines 'down the road', a local outfit called WingNuts, is very personal and such a fun tour. All kinds of restaurants, a minute or two walk, delicious and many on the beach with spectacular views. Horses on the beach daily, to ride or have the pleasure of seeing them (sometimes free) enjoying the early morning beach. Samara is a tico and gringo integrated town, which is a huge reason why i like it so much. I practice my beginner spanish with all the locals. They are very graciously receptive.
