Colina del Mar is located in Playa Sámara on the northwestern segment of Costa Rica's Pacific coastline. Playa Sámara is in the middle of Guanacaste Province, which is the driest and hottest of all Costa Rica's seven regions. As a result, even during the rainy season (Jun-Dec.), Playa Sámara boasts blue skies and an average daily temperature of 83 degrees F. Due to this dryness, Guanacaste is relatively mosquito free compared to other regions in Costa Rica.

Nestled into the foothills of Sámara, Colina del Mar is spectacularly located. The brand new lodge offers views of some of the safest and most serene beaches in the country. With terraces that seem perched on the edge of a mountain, the hotel has a truly majestic feel. Afternoon cocktails from the lounge can be sipped while watching the soft roll of the ocean below. The rooms are simply but elegantly decorated and a cooling breeze makes each room's private balcony a perfect retreat from the hot sun. For the particularly hot days, the lodge has a huge and well-maintained swimming pool with an array of beach chairs and umbrellas that surround it.
Only a two-minute drive from the plethora of bars and restaurants in Playa Sámara, Colina del Mar manages to feel tranquil and secluded. For those who feel like dining-in and relaxing, the hotel has an on-site Rancho style restaurant with views of Buena Vista beach, a secluded stretch of sand that has remained hidden to most tourists. Offering a diverse menu, the open-air restaurant is also the perfect place to take in a sunset over the Pacific Ocean. An amazing variety of Costa Rica's famed wildlife can be spotted from the pool terrace. Monkeys, parrots, and iguanas all reside in the tropical foliage surrounding Colina del Mar, and give camera-ready guests excellent photo-ops daily.
Colina del Mar does not allow children under 12 years of age.
This place is awesome. I thought I would not like not being on the beach. Just the opposite loved being up out of the dust with a nice breeze. And the monkeys were great!
