Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Lovely house with adequate space for family, friends and larger groups. The views are outstanding and the rental staff and house cleaning staff are superb. The bottom line is that these folks take care of their customers as it should be. The stairs maybe a problem for some but I'm 60 and had no problem navigating the multiple levels of this home. Security is readily visible and available after dark but never seem to need them for any reason at all. I highly recommend Casa Samba.

“Pura Vida!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I rented both Casa Samba and Casa Dolce Vita for a family vacation with 22 people. It was perfect! The view was breathtaking, the meals were beyond delicious (Esteban and Tito were fantastic). The space was perfect for our group and nobody complained about anything - how could you - it's paradise! Ricky the concierge was very helpful and attentive - thanks so much!!
The trip was truly unforgettable - our decision to rent private villas with the all inclusive package was FAR superior than any resort could have provided - it was intimate and interactive, with enough space to have privacy and personal time.

“Amazing Experience at Casa Samba”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My wife and I just experienced the vacation of a lifetime in Costa Rica and it all started and ended with our wonderful accomodations at Casa Samba. I am always very skeptical of going through vacation rental without doing a background check , but after reading through all the reviews, my wife and I decided to give it a shot. The home is very spacious, 5-star property, and location is ideal for walking to the restaurants, Manuel Antonio National Park, or to the beach. The property and furniture were all in excellent condition and it's nestled in a very secure community that has several night guards. The home is also very private with portions of the forest creating a natural shield from neighbors being able to peer in. The views from every level of the house is absolutely stunning...in fact, there isn't a bad vew. Just like I have read from many other reviews, there are gauranteed monkey sitings everyday and sometimes twice a day. The monkeys love coming to the 4th level of the house where there is an indoor/outdoor recreational area. If you are around, the younger monkeys will put on a show and entertain you for a good 20 to 30 minutes.
I can go on and on, but at the end of the day, this home is everything that it's rated to be...5-star, safe, close to everything, private, and spacious for a large group. The daily maid service was phenomenal as well! My only recommendation is that families with young children (toddlers) should be cautious of the pool because of the lack of railings. I am looking forward to revisiting this property with a group of friends and family!

“Great House, excellent location, incredible views!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed with another family (total of 9 people), 4 adults, 4 teens and one young adult. The house is huge and could easily accommodate additional people without a feeling a bit crowded. The ocean views are stunning and the proximity to recreational activities is perfect.

Highly recommend Casa Samba on for your next trip to Costa Rica.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 13 May 2013 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed at Casa Samba with another large family. The place was just perfection, plenty of room and perfect accommodations. The location is good for day trips and we took advantage of zip lining, surfing, and a few other adventures. The staff is very friendly and the cook was just amazing.

I highly recommend this to any travelers.
