When our family reached the top of the long steep drive we were stunned by the beauty. The views are amazing. Our rooms were nicely appointed and very clean. We had planned to run back into town for some beach time. However, we never managed to leave the view from poolside. In the morning the squirrels kept us amused while we sipped coffee on our private deck. We heard monkeys in the distance and the birds were plentiful. The food here was above Costa Rica standards by a mile. It is a place you want to make sure you see. The owners/host are very friendly and very helpful. A great find for our family. We will be returning as soon as we can.

We had great vacation at Lodge Las Ranas. The rooms are modern and clean with spectacular view of the sea and of Playa Samara. We saw lots of Monkeys near the hotel and could hear them at dawn. The owners are also very friendly and helpful. They know the place well and help you with the reservation of activities if you wish. The restaurant is very good too, specially the breakfast and the guacamole. We really enjoyed our trip.

Lodge Las Ranas is a really great little hotel with possibly the nicest views of both Samara and Buena Vista Beaches! You get both sunrise and sunset views. The family that runs it is wonderful and extremely helpful with whatever you need. The food is also very good and they are very accommodating with special requests. And best of all, LOTS of monkeys to wake you in the morning! We loved it there.

I had originally booked my stay at Lodge Las Renas for only 4 nights but I enjoyed it so much that I extended my stay for an additional 3 nights. What a great spot!

The lodge is perfectly located just above the beach in Samara. Two minutes drive to restaurants, clubs and the beach, but also just far enough away to provide a tranquil retreat from the evening noise of the bars etc.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished with fan and air conditioning. From my private balcony in suite #2 I had a wonderful view of Playa Samara and the lush forest that surrounds the town of Samara. I enjoyed the privacy of my balcony - the rooms are designed to allow privacy when you are out on your balcony which was very enjoyable late in the evening or while watch the sun rise and listening to the howler monkeys planning there day.

The amenities at the Lodge are excellent including a beautiful swimming pool and open air restaurant/bar.

The owners were absolutely a pleasure and they truly went out of there way to make my stay a success. It was apparent that they derive a lot of joy from taking a personal interest in each guest and they were more than happy to help me with area information and activities --- especially enjoyed the ultra light flying experience that Olivier arranged for me.

The staff are equally friendly and helpful ... keep up the good work Alex, your english is sounding great!

The Lodge Las Renas is only about a year old and an extremely great value. Anyone looking for a casual, five-star experience in the Samara area should not miss the Lodge Las Renas.
