10/10 Exceptional

Pension playa Samara was a fantastic place to stay at. Very well located, close to the beach but not in the middle of noisiness. Facility is simple but clean and confortable. The staff are so helpful and will book a variety of excursions upon request. The pool is clean. They lend you towels for the beach as needed. Many Tico come to this hotel so you really soak in the culture. Breakfast is traditional and delicious. I highly recommend and hope to return if I ever have to occasion again.
