Fantastic lobster dinner
Reviewed July 28, 2011
We only went to have dinner but have been going back weekly to get the langosta (lobster). For $12 you get 2 giant lobster tails and a salad and potatoes. The staff is very friendly.
Excellent, family run hotel!

We stayed one night in another hotel in Sámara and were looking to get out of there when someone recommended Rancho de la Playa to us. We were very pleasantly surprised with the accommodations, we ended up staying a week when our original plan was just a couple days and they were great with getting us available rooms. The staff couldn't be any nicer or friendlier, they allowed us to use their computers and served a great crepe breakfast in the morning. The location is great, it is a super, easy walk to the beach, and is located near many supermarkets and other things you may need like ATMs etc. I definitely recommend this hotel, it is a great place to lay in a hammock, lay by the pool or get involved in a game of ping-pong.
Room Tip: Ask for air-conditioning it gets hot there!
Best restaurant our entire trip

Loved this place. After staying in Sámara for 5 nights, we thought we had run out of dining options and would need to do a repeat of something we'd already done. After visiting the info center, we decided to try this place. So glad we did! Great food, great service, great prices, and great ambiance! Our bill was only $36 for a family of 4 and included 4 "adult" beverages. Also, live music during the dinner hour (started 7ish). And, our server was the most personable and friendliest of any we encountered on our trip. Seemed to be a big ex-pat hangout which seemed to add to its liveliness. There is also a pool off the patio that we were free to use, but it was raining at the time. Overall, just a great restaurant. My only disappointment was that we didn't discover the place until our last night in town.
