Pros: Clean, air-conditioned room with wireless internet and a TV close to the beach. Nice looking pool and pleasant staff. Parking is free but the lot is so small you'll likely get parked in by other patrons.
Cons: Two twin beds shoved together does not equal a king sized bed. The sheets and pillow were thin and pilled which didn't help the comfort of the lumpy bed. My room was furthest from the street so it was fairly quiet although I could hear the thump-thump-thump of the music from a nearby club.
No phone, no hairdryer, no refrigerator, no coffee maker.
The included breakfast was a few cold pancakes, a couple pieces of cold toast, a little fruit, juice and coffee. Hadn't had a bad cup of coffee until this. Like the rest of the Hotel Samara Beach experience it was weak.
