I stayed a week with my family (two children, ages 6 and 9) and had a wonderful visit. The condo is spacious, centrally located, and very comfortable with extra towels, all cooking implements necessary, etc. We had researched the safest beaches in Costa Rica because we know many have a powerful rip current. Sámara's waves were perfect for our first-time boogie-boarders. The water is warm and clear -- just delightful! We went to the beach every day, morning and afternoon (to avoid strong mid-day heat) and loved every minute. We also loved coming home to the spacious condo and relaxing in the pool. The kids loved the Hello Kitty toaster :), and the iguanas who hang out in the roof and yard. Melissa, the property manager, was easy to meet and helpful with recommendations around town. Carla, the owner, was very gracious and helped us re-schedule when our initial plans changed. Just a block away is a massage therapy school, where you can get a great massage for just $20-30. We would love to come back!
