Located on Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coast, Playa Samara is one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches! It is best known for its stunning, long, white sand beach, and is one of the safest swimming beaches in Costa Rica, thanks to the protection of a large reef barrier just off the coastline.
Beachside restaurants and bars with live music create an exciting, yet tranquil atmosphere. And there's something for everyone here-- there are a host of organized tours and activities in Samara, or you can join in on a game of beach volleyball or soccer--or if you prefer, you can always just relax in a lounge chair with a beverage and take in the magnificent display of colors at sunset.
Our quaint little beach town has paved roads and is filled with shops, grocery stores and fantastic restaurant options from sushi to Italian, to Mexican, burgers, seafood and more.
And don’t worry, you’ll feel right at home here. Samara is truly a laid-back, friendly town. It’s a beautiful mix of locals (called Ticos), travelers, families, and retirees, with tourists hailing from the U.S., Canada, Europe and other parts of Costa Rica. In Samara the vibes are always good!
Designed with an unmistakable nod to the charming style of New Orleans, the newly renovated Hotel Playa Samara looks as though it was plucked right off of Bourbon Street and placed here in Samara’s tropical paradise.
Our guests describe our hotel as charming and simple.. And while we certainly aren’t a luxury hotel…
…what we are is CLEAN, COMFORTABLE and AFFORDABLE. Every room has a private bathroom with shower and fresh mattresses and sheets--plus we provide breakfast free with your HOTEL reservation! After 11:00 AM, enjoy the fully equipped kitchen that you can use to prepare your own meals on a budget. Excellent WiFi too!
Our goal is to provide a traditional Costa Rican experience that is clean, safe and comfortable. We are committed to memories and relationships that last a lifetime!
And did we mention that our location is UNBEATABLE? At about 50 meters from the ocean and the center of town, even the slowest of walkers can get to the beach or the shops and restaurants, from our property, within 2 minutes.
