So Close To Everything, So Far From Ideal Accommodations

  • 2 of 5
The good: Located downtown, walk to everything. Close to the hottest spot in Samara, Gusto Beach-Restaurant. Which made our vacation. You must go there.
The bad: The "gated community" as per the owner's description was difficult to find, because there was no gate. But merely a chain across the entrance. Hence, we didn't realize at first that that was "the gate" he was referring to.
The condo is dark. Going to a sun-drenched place doesn't quite feel as good when you go home to a dungeon.
No veranda or porch. Just the common space by the pool. A concrete space with a flimsy plastic table & chairs under a palapa. The private condo area wasn't so private.
It wasn't spick & span either. Some sheets had stains. The couch had stains. It's not what we expected. As far as we are concerned this place was below average.
Otherwise, it was close to everything and we loved Samara, the beach and Gusto.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback and comments because we want everyone's experience at the condo and in Samara to be well above expectations.
We have always taken pride in the cleanliness of the condo and all of the furnishings. We have never heard these kinds of comments previously and will certainly look into what you have said. Again, we really make great effort to have the condo be special and have never had a guest express anything like this previously (as can be seen from the other reviews of the condo).
We will review each of your comments with our condo manager and have our manager look at the couch and the sheets. We do have at least two sets of sheets in the closets in each of the three bedrooms but we will make sure that new sheets are provided for each of the beds. The lighting in the condo has always been well-received but we will also review the lighting taking your feedback into account.
I will say that we never represented this condo as being in a gated community and it is not in any of the information provided on this website. However, I do describe the entry way to the condo when someone has a car as having to drive through a gate.
Again, I am sorry you had this experience and appreciate the time you took to let us know about these issues.
Sincerely,
Paul Berman

Super comfortable accommodations in a great little town!

  • 4 of 5
This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we were pleasantly surprised. We did some touring around Guanacaste and discovered incredible natural biodiversity, beautiful countryside, and friendly, loving people. We stayed three weeks in Samara and attended the language school. This was the perfect place for us - extremely spacious and a 2 minute walk to everything we wanted; school, shops, fresh fruit stalls and vegetable stands, coffee shop, bakery, restaurants and of course the beach! The condo is beautifully equipped with everything you could possible want and can easily accommodate 6-8 people. There is even a housekeeper who comes each week (this was unexpected). There is a large grassy yard with a small pool, a shaded area and BBQ outside, which is nice in the evenings. It will be even nicer when the plantings and palms grow up more. Still a pleasant place to watch the iguanas, birds and the local horses graze. We will return!

Samara is a great town and this is a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
I have been to lots of beaches in Costa Rica, and Samara is one of my favorites. Its a nice little town with a good selection of restaurants and shops, and the beach is good for swimming and very clean. And it has a great place to stay: this condo! You are a few blocks from the beach, a pleasant walk through town. The condo has nice furniture, tasteful decorations, and a large kitchen with all the plates, utensils, pans, etc you need. There is a even a blender for your frozen drinks :-) The bedrooms are large and comfortable, and the air conditioning is modern and effective. We really liked this place, and I imagine that you will, too.

Samara is a traditional Costa Rican beach town with international flavor. Excellent restaurants (Italian, fresh seafood, German, traditional Costa Rican, vegetarian and more). The life in Samara is easy care-free living with inexpensive and delicious fresh bakeries and fresh fruit markets within a two minute walk. Surf schools, massage school, language school, horseback riding on the beach or mountains or to waterfalls, scuba diving, and zip lines all within 5 minutes. High speed internet cafes within a two minute walk provide friendly and thorough tour guide information for trips throughout Costa Rica. Eco-tourism including river tours, tours of rain forest, and other nature tours are within an hour drive. Punta Islita, a gorgeous and tranquil ocean-front spa and resort, is also within a 45 minute drive - it is a must do activity. For those who want more than a relaxing and quite time at the beach, there is lots to do in and around Samara and enough days trips to keep everyone busy for weeks.
