Montelaguna Boutique Hotel
Ranked #10 of 32 Playa Samara B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 November 2013

In addition to being within walking distance to two beaches, we liked the clean, bright rooms with comfortable new beds and linens. Delicious meals served at shaded outdoor tables were very enjoyable and saved time and money as compared to restaurants in Samara and Carillo. The café by the pool was certainly handy for a quick tasty bite. Families with children will be glad to know that the owners are raising three children. Montelaguna Boutique Hotel stacks up very well compared to hotels in other tropical locales we have visited.

Room Tip: Second floor suites have a lovely view of the pool, patio and tropical garden.

You cannot go wrong with Montelaguna Boutique Hotel if you desire spanking new hotel facilities smack in the middle of two gorgeous beaches, Playas Samara and Carillo. It was so nice that we could concentrate on vacation activities and return to our accommodations having high end furnishings maintained in top condition. On the days we didn’t feel like venturing far, the sprawling hotel grounds proved relaxing with a huge swimming pool, mature trees, flowers as well as resident turkey, goose and chickens. The owners, Giorgia and Gian Mario are eager to please and knowledgeable on just about anything you might want to know for a great vacation. Top marks!

I was a little hesitant going to the hotel since it is new and there were no reviews so I wasn't sure what to expect. When I arrived and saw the place it went beyond my expectations. The pool is huge and beautiful and the water crystal clear. The landscaping makes the place feel so tropical. The room was really super nice, it was bright and airy, had lots of room and had everything you could possibly need. The bathroom was beautiful, marble tiles and it was immaculate, everything is brand new. But it was the mattress that was pure heaven. I have traveled quite a lot through Costa Rica and I have never seen or slept on any mattress that was as wonderful as the one there. The owners/managers were very friendly and accommodating and made sure my stay was perfect. Everyone at the hotel was so friendly, I was treated like a VIP and could not have felt more welcome the entire time I was there. I think it is an excellent value for the quality and all that is included, even breakfast. There is no question, I will be going back.
The location is ideal, just a short walk in either direction takes you to two beachfronts, Playa Carrillo and Playa Samara. Playa Carrillo was my favorite and one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen. It is lined with palm trees that offered shade when you want to get out of the sun. The water was so blue and the perfect temperature and the surf was not rough so perfect for swimming. I walked Samara beach up to the town center, it's a good walk but I like that. there are lots of great restaurants and places to go at night. Getting a cab back to the hotel at night is super easy and cheap.
