Amazing! Kids loved the pool. The location was spectacular and easy access too beach and town. Our check in process and individual was so friendly and helpful in every single way. Breakfast was delicious every day-kids loves the pancakes. Would definitely recommend this location.

The hotel was clean and well staffed, with the reception service excellent. No dinner or lunch was served but the breakfast was excellent. The hotel is about 15 minute walk from town and beach. Close enough to walk but on a dusty road.

8/10 Very good

Nice quiet family friendly place
Extremely friendly staff, always willing to help and go the extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable. The room had an AC and 2 fans, a nice bathroom with hot water and a balcony. Nice pool. The restaurant is closed due to the pandemic, but they do have breakfast and a selection of nice cocktails.

Loved the stay here. Felt authentic but had the amenities of home. Beautiful pool and bar area. Great staff and yummy breakfast! So cool to hear the animals all night too.

8/10 Very good

Nice place. Completely packed with mostly French tourists. Good breakfast, nice staff, and even though they say that you are 5 minutes walking to the beach, it’s minimum 5 minutes by car. After walking one way for 30 minutes on a very dusty road, we turned back.

Our stay at Samara Pacific Lodge was great! The entire staff was very friendly and attentive. The pool and dining areas were very well maintained and breakfast was good. Rooms are simple but were clean and had well-working AC. Parking is free, on-site, in a gated lot. The location is outside of downtown Samara but within 15 minute walking distance (20 minutes to walk along the beach). We would highly recommend this property!

Great week long stay!
Our family really enjoyed our week long stay at Samara Pacific Lodge. The owner and staff are all so wonderful! The family room was very basic (no fridge or anything), but the front desk allowed us to keep drinks in their fridge for us. The breakfast had 2 options (pancakes with fruit salad or typical- rice/beans, eggs and toast), and both were delicious. The fruit salad was so fresh and delicious. The fresh squeezed juice every morning was excellent. Oh and their homemade jam- especially the pineapple was SO GOOD! The rooms and grounds were clean, the parking was behind a gate with a passcode, and the front desk was most helpful with any info. The pool is quite deep, but there is a small shallow pool for kids if needed. The chairs/loungers around the pool were comfortable as well. Definitely recommend staying here!
