Casita Ruiz Samara Awesome Condo
This condo this perfect for a couple or a family. It is well equipped. It is within walking distance to everything. You really don’t need a vehicle. Just rent one for the day if you want to explore. Loved staying right down town.. Playa Samara is the place to be. This condo is in the perfect location. Thanks so much . Karen and to Ridley for all your assistance while we were in Samara.
Thank you, we loved having you both for the month. And we agree, Samara is the place to be, and the condo is in the perfect location. We would love to host you again, anytime.
Awesome! So close to everything!

Clean Comfortable Convenient
Perfectly situated in the center of Samara. The entire town is mere steps away from the Condo. The Condo is maintained with excellence and our contact there (Ridley) was very helpful - he even made reservations, upon our request, at an incredible local restaurant for us! The spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath place was a clean and comfortable respite from the tropical heat, thanks to the ceiling fans and air conditioners in each room. On arrival the bowl of fruit was an extra special surprise. We arrived on New Year's day and the town was still quite festive throughout that first night with a lot of festive traffic - on foot and in vehicles. All the other nights were very quiet even though we were in the middle of this beautiful little beach town. Your stay here can be as laid-back or as eventful as you wish, with zip-lining, kayaking, surfing, etc. available at the various adventure shops in town. We enjoyed dominos by the pool one evening and we rented electric golf carts and made a couple of fun trips to Playa Carrillo and Playa Buenavista one day. There's even a small, resident iguana that watches over his domain and perches on the rooftop. We dubbed him 'Roberto'. He was fun to watch as he bobbed his head trying to attract his lady friends. We also were blessed with some of the resident horses in town one morning as they chose the grasses within the complex for their morning grazing. Local food is excellent and nightlife is available for karaoke or sports bars within a couple blocks' stroll. The beach is perfect for enjoying boogie boarding, surfing, horseback riding, or just relaxing with lots of little restaurants and beach bars available. Condo Ruiz is conveniently located, perfectly appointed and exceptionally comfortable for the perfect Costa Rican vacation!!! We will definitely return.
Great roomy condo, easy walk to beach and restaurants, grocery
We stayed here with 2 parents, 2 grandparents, 2 teens and the space was perfect with the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We used the kitchen for dinners and breakfasts and went out for a long lunch at Locanda on the beach every day where we could hang in the shade for hours while the kids swam or surfed. AC worked well. No ocean view but that's fine with us. It was loud with street noise (people, music, motorcycles revving around corner) on New Year's Eve as you'd expect but reasonably quiet the other nights.
My only suggestion would be to get some of the newer LED lights to replace the current bulbs. It is rather dark and hard to read/play card games in kitchen/living area. Thank you for a great stay!
Unbeatable location in heart of small surf town.
The condo was well equipped and perfect for our needs....Thanks very much!!
Thank you Doug. We think the location is unbeatable as well! We welcome you and your family back anytime.
A perfect home!
Literally at the centre of town, steps from the beach, and in one of the most elegant houses around, we give this spacious home top marks. A fully outfitted kitchen, two showers with good water pressure, a washer and dryer, and even a swimming pool--there was nothing missing. Nice extra touches were the fruit and juice gracing our arrival, and the very helpful property manager, who was knowledgeable and friendly and went out of his way to assist us. We also enjoyed the iguanas on the roof, and the freely grazing horses that would occasionally stroll through the yard. Would definitely return.
