We stayed 4 nights at the Fenix Hotel. We chose this hotel after reading many, many reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids ages 10 and 6) and were first time visitors to Costa Rica. We loved that the Fenix had cooking facilities, was steps from the swimmable ocean, was walking distance to town, and had a pool. We enjoyed the convenience of homemade ceviche and pastries brought to our doorstep. Phyllis was helpful made our stay comfortable. We had a room without air conditioning, and were comfortable in late June. Our girls were comfortable on the twin bed with a pull out trundle. While the pool is small, we had it mostly to ourselves, and the girls spent hours playing in it. The grounds and pool were well maintained. We did not have a car and found walking to town with kids fine except during hottest time of day. I would stay here again!
- 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
