Less than a block from the beach, this pleasant, well-tended hotel is one of Sámara's best values. The bright, tidy rooms have dark-wood furniture, white walls, and ceramic floors. Eleven of the rooms have air-conditioning and private bath; six of the rooms lack air-conditioning and share baths, but they also share a common balcony with an ocean view, and sea breezes help to cool them. The premium room is #19 ($85), recently renovated with a private balcony overlooking
the beach, new a/c, and a small fridge. The hotel has a giant cold-water whirlpool in a small garden and a big cage holding a rescued parrot named Bella. Guests can take lounge chairs across the road to the hotel's private beachfront area, where there's also private parking.

Nice enough little hotel just by the beach. They have their own private access lane to the beach (25M from the entrance to the beach itself) and they also have their own deck chairs on the beach. The new manager is a great guy who tries his very best to help. We opted for an air conditioned room but unfortunately there was a power cut in the middle of the night which kind of made this a bit pointless! No pool but they a have a huge cold water jacuzzi
which is a bit odd, but nice nonetheless.... If you stay here, or anywhere in Playa Samara, I'd HIGHLY recommend you dine at Las Bravas and opt for the seafood platter which was just magnificent and cheap beyond all belief (16000c for 2 people!). Overall we had a great night in Samara just passing through and would return if only for the seafood platter!
