Right in the center of town. Clean, nice grounds and pool, good bfst - right across from a nightclub so can be a little loud but other than that - all good.

Good deal, good location
Playa Samara is a small beach town so just about everything is a short walk. Hotel was convenient, very clean, had large rooms with a/c and balconies. The pool is well-maintained and well-lit for use at night. The breakfast was great with typical rice and beans as well as fresh fruit, bread for toast, sometimes pancakes, and always coffee and juice. My only complaint would be the thin walls, the crying baby might as well be in my room. For more money, there are places on the beach with areas to relax with a view. I would stay here again.

Convenience cannot be beat.
Gets a little loud with the nightclub across the street, and then the birds and monkeys in the morning, but makes up for it with the quiet ambience during the day poolside.
