For our first adventure in Costa Rica, we couldn't have picked better accommodations than this intimate, family-run hideaway on Samara Beach. Its clean, high-ceiling rooms are nicely decorated and open to a small pool and patio, with the ocean just steps beyond through a tropical garden that's manicured daily. Phyllis & Bill, its proprietors, are warm, attentive hosts, who are eager to ensure your stay in Samara Beach is most memorable--which ours was. The Fenix Hotel is not a Westin or Marriott, but it's just what we were looking for in our tropical vacation, which was a quiet place to relax and get to know the Tico culture on the locals' terms. Sunsets are fantastic as are the nighttime stars. The town and restaurants are all a short walk on the beach or a two-minute drive away. We'll be back.
- 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
