Meander back from the rolling ocean waves of Playa Samara, two blocks away, to the Hotel Samara Inn for a swim in the calm pool, or relax in a loft area, watching the magnificent sunset view over the coast and ocean.
Behind the glass window breakfast and reception area, 14 pool-facing rooms – spread across two floors – line the sunny southern edge of the courtyard. In the central garden, magenta bougainvillea bushes reflect against the grayish volcanic-rock pool.
Guests can find just about everything needed for a cozy stay in a standard room, $60, with a double bed, two desks, cable TV, Wi-Fi, A/C, safety deposit box, private bathroom, and hair dryer. Each of the rooms has a view of the pool and garden, visible through a large glass door and windows.
The front restaurant area serves breakfast to all guests, featuring unlimited cups of Costa Rican coffee, chilled orange juice and a choice of eggs, toast, jam, and local fruits. In the dry season (Dec.-April and Jul.-Aug.), the restaurant is open noon – 9 p.m., for guests who wish to dine-in rather than visiting downtown Samara.
