Great stay just not fully satisfied.
We have stayed here before so we are repeat customers so we liked it very much. The problem was we took kids last minute and the vharge for them was as much as the room itself but yet they didnt give us another room just a room with a small twin bed and full bed which made it hard for me the wife and three kids. Other than that the hotel is great!

First A/C and hot water in 6 weeks - what's not to like? Plus I saw my first coati (pizote) in their garden.

Hotel Sol Samara, Samara
nice but needs improvement.
Beds make to much noise when you turn around, ants were present at the bathroom, good curtains, however in top of the closet there is a window with no curtains... so it was clear with the exterior lights to try to sleep. Hotel outside and gardens looks old, no like the pictures... I just think it needs some improvement. Breakfast was decent, however...why in Costa Rica gallopinto needs to be paid extra on a free meal??? I will understand about french toasts???? but gallopinto!!! come on... it Costa Rica finest meal!

No Hot Water But We Would Go back.
Its a short drive to Samara and Carillo but a short walk to the beach and overall great location if your looking get a little seperation from Samara. Everything was great except the hot water. We got hot water one of the three days we were there. Also our shower head did not spray anywhere which made it difficult to shower. We kind of expected the lack of hot water based on the reviews and in spite of the lack of hot water, we very much enjoyed our stay. We would go back.
