    I was there during the holy week time and after driving for 2 hours from the "3Hermanas" crossroads we arrived at the Hotel. We had the opportunity to visit the Azure which is part of the Villas Playa Samara complex and we were simply delighted with all the details. It is a beautiful complex. Regarding the villas, simply beautiful, very comfortable, and clean. The vegetation, the gardens around very well maintained. The beach in front with a beautiful view, and for any outdoor activity. Very clean by the way. The fauna visits you at every moment without fear of harming each other. It was extremely relaxing to enjoy the villa. The ambiance of the pool and the attention of the staff was exceptional. Always very attentive to serve. With reference to the meals, (we selected an all-inclusive), they were a la carte. The food was exquisite, very balanced, with a complete menu for everyone's taste. The attention of the staff, that is, the team that assisted and served us was cordial, respectful, and attentive at all times. So our recognition to Roger, Jose, Gerald, Jonathan, Jonathan, Freddy, Killiam, Brainer, Keilor, Anibal, Seney, Nauh, and Yez. We are very grateful for their attention. And finally, our thanks to Mr. Luis Rojas and Mr. Sergio for their excellent assistance in the registration of our stay. We hope to return soon with more of our family to enjoy what it means to truly rest.

    The Villas are well maintained despite the pandemic, had some issues that were rapidly resolved by the staff. The attitude of all the staff was splendid, they made our family trip a very special by giving us the best smiles and disposition. I would like to comment there is opportunity for improving the times for the food delivery at the restaurant and to the pool and beach area. We want to thank very especially Mr. Sergio Bejarano for his help from the reservation process and during our whole stay. A special note of gratitute to the waiter that gave us an outstanding service: Freddy as well as the bartender in the main bar Alejandro. The efforts made to have a special new year's afternoon and evening were very much appreciated. We hope to visit again soon!

    Wonderful people. Great Service. Great accomodations. I was so sick prior to leaving home and my husband is so sick now after 2 days returning. I would recommend to anyone but I am kicking myself for not sticking to bottled water. We found the food weak although it was okay. Everything else was spectacular. I would recommend in a heartbeat but be prepared for food that looks good but maybe isn't good for you. I also wish there was better management with day trips. We booked a day excursion . When we arrived we were told we couldn't go because of a mistake . We were offered a refund but not a complimentary excursion. I found this frustrating as we only had 7 days and left our small adventures until the end. We had a full refund just not as much customer service as I would have expected. They were great but didn't go extra mile I guess. Very disappointing for our trip. I would definitely go back though!!!!!!

    I have read some bad reviews and I never saw what You people saw. Room 1 bedroom villa small but great...had to ask for a cot for our daughter and a bed was delivered within 1/2 hour. Hot water was mostly hot...who stays in the room anyway!!! Food...could always find something to eat...Yes there were birds around...it was outdoors...just like you would find with any outdoor venue. My husband enjoyed the a la carte... Dirty...hmm poop was on the patio furniture...of course its outside...take a napkin wipe it off sit your ass down... If there was a mess it was from other vacationers that didnt clean up after themselves if you have someone that caters to you at home bring them with you...or pick up your garbage ppl...washrooms around the resort were clean bartenders it took 25 mins to get a drink...seriously...only if the ppl were ordering the fun drinks...if the pool bartender seen you coming and you ordered the same drink all the time he knew and if there is only 1 relax look around enjoy the view. Staff rude...never saw that...if they were rude how rude were you first? We went on 2 excursions atvs and dolphin and snorkelling both were worth the money saw dolphins whales turtles There was no kids club, entertainment, dance classes, shows...so we made our own fun. That was the only issue we had...but oh well, lots to do!!! Our 7 year old daughter picked Costa Rica over Disney, we are so glad she did it was Amazing...if you are looking for a nice quiet relaxing family spot, come here! Maid service wasn't the best, but we had brought our own towels and managed with what we had!
