This is our third trip to Villas Playa Samara. We were treated very well and we love it there. Having our own Villa allows for more privacy when traveling with others. It was a little frustrating that our actual restaurant wasn’t open for the first part of our trip so they had us dine at one of the restaurants at Azure, which appears to have 3 restaurants. Then the last 2 days our restaurant opened & we were no longer aloud at Azure, including the beach chairs in front which literally are on the same property. It is an adults only property but we were all adults. Our restaurant did offer the same menu & the food is amazing! The staff is very nice and accommodating. The property is also very secure so you feel safe! Can’t wait to book our next trip back!

Beautiful views! We truly enjoyed our stay here. We had a bungalow close to the beach- like 25ft away! Rooms were clean and loved the patio facing the beach. The staff were so friendly especially at the restaurant. Because of Covid-19, we only had one option for restaurant but the food was good that was included in our all inclusive option- food and alcohol- for the price it was a steal! Loved that they extend their restaurant service while we sunbathed on the beach. Wish the pool bar was open but understood why it was closed because of the pandemic. The town of Samara is a 20-30min walk on the beach. We look forward to coming back with a group of friends!

We were given 100 dollar credit..staff did not know what we could use credit towards. Unfortunately last day we found out it was $25 toward 4 excursions. Disappointed we could not use it elsewhere or at property store. Wish we knew ahead if time what credit is for to utilize it properly
