Best all around resort

Check in was speedy and each person friendly and very helpful at the front desk (booking cars, arrival and checkout as well as general questions about the area) Attached gift shop had a very friendly attendant with great local snacks and souvenirs. The room was breathtaking, I think all Villas are ocean facing and well updated. The food was delicious and there were alacarte options on less busy days. The lunch menu had great ceviche and many other choices but the buffet was always great for lunch, snacks and dinner. Try to sit in Rogers section, he is always smiling. Ocean was great, my son got stung by a Jelly Fish but the beach staff was quick to the rescue and 15 mins and cold sand and he was fine. So many different shells and you will always see the wild horses and iguanas roaming. The pool bar is where I spent many hours, beautiful pool and the bar always had excellent music, service and accommodations. The drinks were the best out of any resort Ive visited. Daniel and Yulian, thank you so much for the amazing service. Best overall resort!

Friendly, wonderful staff!

We loved staying here in April, 2017! There were so many staff members that made us feel welcome. Yulian was our absolute favourite because he went out of his way to feed us, make sure we had plenty to drink and he helped us practice our Spanish! He was so polite and accommodating and made sure to call us by name. Daniel and Hugo always made the afternoon fun at the pool, playing our song requests and mixing fabulous drinks! Javier, Liseth, Froilan, Marcos and Ariana always welcomed us with smiles and made sure we were well looked after. At the front desk, Paolo was delightful! Manfred and Max seemed to anticipate our requests before we made them! Gracias y Pura Vida!Gail and Al❤️

Slowest Restaurant Service

This is a pretty hotel with clean rooms. The restaurant has the worst service!!!!! You'll be sitting forever trying to get service. It's extremely irritating!!!!!! You pay for dinner and have to sit and wait for anyone to fill your drink or even talk to you. We were at lunch for about 2 hours today. Or waiting for your check is a joke. You'll spend most of your vacation just waiting, while 5 waiters are doing nothing.

My amazing week

For someone who's looking for a good hotel with a good price in Costa Rica, I'll recommand to everyone (familie, friends or couple) the Villa Playa Samara hotel. The room was beautiful, the food was good and the staff was professionnal with all of us, especially Javiar Soles, a waitress at the hotel. He was very kind and made sure that we had everything we needed each day he worked.

First trip to Costa Rica

Reading the reviews prior everyone said this was a bad resort totally Wrong. We went May 23 To May 31 Family of five of us. The staff was wonderful. The rooms were great the food was awesome. I'm a certified chef Picky what I eat and I have nothing bad to say about this resort. It was the rainy season the start of it but we were on the other side of the mountain so it only rained once for like 35 minutes really bad the rest the time it rained for like 5 to 10 And it was a light hot rain minutes. The hotel is 3 1/2 star I was talking to the hotel manager they are building up their hotel and they will be building up to a five star I would love to come back and check out the new Hotel when it's done. Check and was very fast. This is a smoke free hotel. And partying doesn't go on all night the Bars are 10 AM to 1130pm I think It was. They have good snack bars that run all time right from breakfast supper. The only thing I could see the people who complain about is if you didn't buy all-inclusive It could get very expensive I was talking to one girl she just got there and by 4 o'clock she already had a $300 bill US the hotel staff did tell her that she could buy a two day all inclusive pass she didn't tell me how much it was but they were nice to offer that to her But we were looking at the à la cart because you can order that sometimes they offer that you just don't have to pay it if you're all inclusive the prices range anywhere from eight dollars to $18 US. So if you're not going all inclusive it will get expensive.Pros everything was close staff was friendly and the food was good when I go back yes it's very expensive if I can find a cheap again I would definitely go backConsNone that I can think of
