Giada Hotel

Giada is a name born out of gratitude to Giovanni and Ada, 2 people who in 1992 helped and supported the romantic and visionary dream of the current and only owner, in the epic construction of the 1st stage of the hotel in Samara they had only few houses, the majority of fishermen, there was no paved road, there was no business, no radio or TV signals. The nearest stores and hardware stores were in Nicoya, 37 km road in poor condition. Sometimes, in the rainy season, due to the impossibility of crossing the rivers, you could not get to Nicoya, place of supply of building materials, food, practically everything. However, with patience and perseverance, in December 1993 the Hotel was opened. Since then, a good part of the hotel’s income has been continuously reinvested in constant improvements and, finally, in 2004, with the help of a new partner, there was an increase from 13 to 24 rooms with all the services and amenities required in our times , and last with an excellent wi-fi signal throughout the structure. We thank all our customers and our suppliers who have believed and supported our growth at any time and who now allow us to be a small but dynamic company whose goal is to constantly improve the quality of the stay of our valued guests.

In general I really liked the hotel, the location, the facilities, all the staff is very friendly, the breakfast very good, the only suggestion is that in the second pool, the steps that are by the jacuzzi should have a railing. It was my first time in Samara, but if I return, I would stay at the Giada hotel again.
