Perfect

Fantastic spot right on the beach. Our kids ages 12 & 15 loved hanging out in the hammocks, at the beach, and in the pool. Walking along the sand with the family to a restaurant in town was the highlight of my trip. I’d love to go back right now!!!!

Best spot on Samara beach

We originally booked 3 nights here but after the first night decided to extend our stay to 4. The property and especially the beachfront is gorgeous. It's a little slice of paradise where you can lounge in hammocks or thickly cushioned chairs while being shaded under the palms. The beach is lovely and far enough from the town that many times we had this stretch to ourselves. The rooms are comfy and clean. We liked having a kitchen to cook. We didn't mind the close proximity to neighbors. Everyone we met was nice. The pool is small but that's ok, it's a plunge pool not a swimming pool. If you want to swim, the ocean is right there! Jay was a kind and helpful host. We were sad to leave and would definitely come back if we are in Samara again.

We just returned from a New Year's Eve visit to Samara and the Fenix Hotel. All of the other 5* reviews are accurate. We were there in the peak holiday season and the town was not that crowded and NYE was lots of fun. The restaurants do offer special NYE dinner menus, but the best part is ringing in the New Year with beach fires all along the coast. At midnight, there are so many fireworks displays coming from all directions. Great place to visit - we highly recommend it!

Great family spot, fantastic beach location

Great spot for families with in-room kitchenette, pool, pool toys and an amazing shaded beach location with plenty of chairs to relax in. Our kids enjoyed the pool so much and the boogie boards the hotel provided. We met a few families staying at the same time and our we all made friends which made the stay amazing. Jay the owner is friendly and always willing to help with suggestions.

Amazing month at the Fenix

We spent a month here with friends and it truly is one of a kind. Having the beach and the pool steps away for the kids was perfect and the hotel has sand toys, pool toys and boogie boards that we made good use of. The canopy of trees and hammocks made for a great escape from the heat. The owner Jay Is super friendly and helpful with suggestions for tours and places to eat. We will definitely be back to Sámara and staying here.

Happy with our choice :)

We were very happy with our stay here. Upon arrival the owner Jay provided a very thorough intro to the property and area and he was always available to answer any questions. The pool is small but refreshing and only steps from the rooms, there is lots of comfortable seating in the shade along the beach which I found rare for this area. The kitchen was well stocked and Jay always had cold beer at a reasonable price. Based on reading past reviews I would note two things: first, that the owner Jay took over the property some time in early 2019 (this is my estimate so could be off a bit) so any complaints about the owner prior to this time should be disregarded; second, this is not luxury accommodation, it had everything we needed and was clean, however if you are looking for a resort this place may not be for you. All in all we were very happy we chose Fenix Hotel and would not hesitate to return or recommend to a friend:) We walked down to Playa Carrillo one day - would definitely recommend a visit to that beach during your stay

Amazing location, beautiful hotel!!

This was a great hotel! Jay, the owner, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The rooms are spacious (there is a kitchen if you need to cook meals for an extended stay) and the view is amazing. This hotel is literally right on the beach and downtown Samara is a short walk on the beach away. You cannot beat the location. Would highly recommend to anybody looking to visit Samara! Thanks Jay!

Love it! Love it! Love it!

Did i say we Love it! Don’t be scared of Low Season! We Stayed 6 Night , in low season. Absolutely beautiful. Most days we were the only ones on the beach. Lots of rain, but mostly at night. The beach was awesome, Town is close. Jay ( the owner) is wonderful. Pool is a small delight, Perfect for cooling off. We recommend water shoes, when in the waves, , as the small stones can be hard on the feet. We will defiantly be back! OUR HAPPY PLACE. Carol and Don
