“Fabulous Villa”
Reviewed 3 January 2018 for a stay in November 2017

Villa Kamar is an architectural dream 5 BR casa with its own private beautifully groomed grounds with large pool, and is directly across the street from a picture postcard beach, with the charming village of Samara within blocks. We have also stayed in one of the 6 charming Cottages of Villa Kamar, which is next door with a private restaurant and is also complete with pool and spa. Roberto and his staff are always available with special attention and are like family. I think Samara is the best small beach village and Villa Kamar / Villas Kalimba is by far the best small private resort in Guanacaste.

“An Oasis in Paradise”
Reviewed 27 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Last year, when I was in Samara, I walked by everyday but had no idea such an amazing place was on the other side. From the large rooms with full bathrooms, full kitchen and living room, to the outdoor lounge area and spectacular pool, Villa Kamar has everything. It's hands down, one of the best places I've found in Samara and the pictures just don't do it justice. It's beautiful.

From the time we arrived Isabella, Diego and the rest of the staff took wonderful care of us making us feel at home. Because it's located in the heart of town, we couldn't believe the only sounds we heard at night were waves crashing and the monkeys.

It's the epitome of Pura Vida and we can't wait to come back to Villa Kamar next year.

“Little paradies , plus a great italian cook!”
Reviewed 15 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is certainly one of the best places to enjoy a beach vacation in Playa Samara, if not in Costa Rica as a whole, if you are not travelling on a backpacker´s budget. After travelling around beautiful Costa Rica for 12 days , we , a company of 10 people, arrived at Roberto´s place to enjoy a week of Sea, Surf, Sand & Sun. Actually it became hard to leave for the beach as this place became our little paradies, incl. a nice pool, howler monkeys and leguans. Don´t miss the opportunity when Roberto does some cooking!

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.

“I still dream of our stay at Villa Kamar”
Reviewed 8 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

“Simply perfect”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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!

“A Perfect Place For a Family Holiday”
Reviewed 19 May 2017 for a stay in December 2016

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!
