My husband and I have lived in Costa Rica for almost 8 years and have traveled the beaches and Hotels on both coast extensively. We have stayed at the "all inclusive hotels" they are great if you like the touristy scene (now we prefer the more private, romantic and authentic) and we have stayed at some places that I would not let my dog stay at. I can personally say that Phyllis and Bill were very accommodating from the very beginning. We had made our reservations to stay in early January. We could not make our reservation as my Mom in the States needed immediate health attention and I had to cancel our trip. Phyllis and Bill graciously told us to come back at our convenience and we were finally able to reschedule our trip a few weeks later.
I can only say, that our host/hostess are the kind of people I would recommend to my closest of Family and Friends! My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary and had one of the BEST experiences we ever had. If you want a great experience by some really wonderful host/hostess...This is the place to come! Authentic and Pure Life...Pura Vida as the Ticos say!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Six time winner of the Traveller's Choice Award for 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2009! Thank you to all of our wonderful guests. We are a small (6 rooms), beach-front hotel just footsteps from the ocean. Our rooms are clean, colorful and comfortable. We are NOT an all-inclusive, luxury resort. More like your place at the beach, but with someone else doing the daily cleaning, changing the linens and yard work. The rooms are in a semi-circle and face the pool, gardens and the ocean. (see photos) Great way to meet new people and exchange information and stories. We have been here 17 years managing our "little piece of paradise". Our front yard is sand with ranchos and palm trees for plenty of shade. Hammocks, sunbeds, small pool, gardens and BBQ complete our front yard. All of our rooms have fully equipped kitchens with separate bedroom. The deluxe room has AC & widescreen TV. Standard rooms have upper and lower screened windows and two ceiling fans. Our neighborhood has a small grocery store & fish market, along with local deliveries of fruits and fresh ceviche. An enjoyable 15 minute walk to Samara Central. Most of our guests return or have been recommend by friends. Thank you for considering our special place by the sea. ... more less
