"The striking gleaming white contemporary interpretation of a Spanish Parador that commands the hill overlooking Samara is Morador de Samara. Imagine the panoramic views, especially from the tower (Mirador) containing open-walled restaurant and bar. Six large apartments each sleep five. They're clean within, almost clinical with simple hardwood furnishing and floors. German-owned."

"Also near here is the new Mirador de Samara built on a hill and with a tall white and blue tower which is a prominent landmark. It's a great place to eat breakfast or hang out with a beer in the afternoon and watch for monkeys. There are six good-sized apartments with airy high ceilings, private hot shower and equipped kitchens. They'll sleep up to five people. The owner tells me he can take guests on a car tour anywhere they want to go."

"Please accept our sincere appreciation for your hospitally and your assistance during our recent stay at the Mirador Sámara. We were very impressed with the spaciousness, comfort and cleanliness of your accommodations and particularly enjoy the privacy and comfort of the patio area. The mornings spent watching beautiful birds and butterflies from the patio while enjoying the cooling breezes contributed greatly to our enjoyment of our vacation. The view from the room as well as the tower is unbelievably beautiful and it was very relaxing to watch the ocean while overlooking the village with all the trees in bloom. We particularly are appreciative of your assistance when Bill was taken ill. Thank youso much for contacting the Doctor and making arrangements for him tocome to the hotel. We have long thought that the days of Doctor making house call were over. Also thank you for providing translation services during the Doctor's visit. Bill is feeling much better and was able to enjoy our holiday thanks to your concern and offers in obtaining the medical care he needed. We have traveled for many years to a number of countries and stayed in many hotels but we are sincere in saying that we have never been provided with the individual attention and concern that you're provided us with. We are planning another visit to Costa Rica and the Mirador de Sámara, hopefully in the near future. Beast wishes to your family and again our thanks for helping us have a wonderful holiday."

"Thanks again for a wonderful vacation. We loved your hotel and your generous hospitality was appreciated. The trips you organized were lots of fun for us. We missed Samara after we left it. You were going to send us information regarding the finca for sale. I did not receive anything from you at our friend's e-mail address and thought that you may have lost our e-mail addresses.
Do you ever travel outside Costa Rica during the rainy season? If you ever wish to come to Canada, you should drop by with your family and see us. We live on a lake in a beautiful country setting, 30 minutes from the capital city of Canada (Ottawa). The months of your rainy season is our best weather - June to August especially. Our weather then is comparable to your weather in Samara now. We have two beautiful houses up here and could loan you one of them for a visit. Maybe we could trade for some time at your hotel.... Anyway - we were so delighted to find your hotel and we will be back next year. Please pass our regards to Yardo and his friends."

"Just a few photos from our wonderful stay at your hotel Mirador. We enjoyed the spacious apartment, the beautiful view from our terrace, the lovely swimming pool and the great garden. We are also very grateful for all the great trips or places to see and arrangement you made for us. In our short stay we experienced so many diverse events a trip on the river with cocodriles, iguanas and myriads of birds, deep sea fishing, turtles laying eggs, horseback riding in the beach etc. We have enjoyed our stay to the fullest. I would also like to especially thank you for all your help while dealing with my broken foot it was reassuring to know these was someone who we could count for help in the hospital stay, the hotel in the capital etc. Naya had a lot of fun forming a friendship with your daughter Lucy and her little friends. She was excited about visiting the bullfigth with your wife and daughter. I am hoping for another opportunity to visit Costa Rica and Playa Sámara. I will highly recommend your services to all my friends. Thanks again and best regards to you and your family."
