Pristine white sand beaches, clear turquoise waters, and plentiful palm trees have made the tiny town of Sámara an internationally sought-after destination. The village is a cluster of hotels and restaurants that can be traversed on foot in its entirety in well under a half an hour. But it is the beach that consistently awes travelers: the immaculate sand leads from palm shade to gentle waves, which are softened by the large coral reef offshore. Because of the reef, Sámara Beach is considered one of the safest swimming spots in Costa Rica; this makes it popular for families with children. The beach is 21 miles (35 km) from administrative center Nicoya, which is a hub for transportation to the many beaches and national parks in the area. Fortunately, Samara is one of the most accessible.
Just a short walk from the beach, the hotel has a lovely pool nestled in a luxuriously green garden, complete with deck loungers from which to take in the attractive scene. To the side of the pool is a rustic yet romantic covered terrace, like a gigantic gazebo with flowing drapes.
Back on shore, returning to the base camp of the Sámara Beach Hotel is a relaxing experience, with its 24-hour front desk, property-wide Wi-Fi, and mellow atmosphere. Clean rooms overlook the garden and pool, and feature cable TV, private bathrooms, and safety deposit boxes. Some of the rooms are cooled with air conditioning units, while others have fans. Second-floor superior rooms all have large balconies that are equipped with comfortable patio furniture.
The Sámara Beach Hotel is also a wheelchair-accessible hotel, and has accommodations suitable for individuals with physical disabilities.
