Our front yard is sand. Your front door is only footsteps from the wide, sandy beach and the warm blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.

The front yard has lots of shade with hammocks, benches, tables and movable sunbeds with comfortable cushions. Two beach ranchos. Also a BBQ rancho.

Over half of our guests have either returned or recommend our “little piece of paradise” to their friends.

Fenix Hotel - On The Beach is the perfect place to "Get Away From It All" and unwind. Relax and enjoy the tranquility of the sounds of the ocean. If you don´t want to relax, there is the option of swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding, hiking to name a few.

The tropical white sand beach stretches out long and wide, perfect for building sand castles or going for an early morning jog. Coral and rock reefs at both ends of the beach provide a safe place to swim, without riptides. Our small pool is perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach. It is also the perfect size to learn how to swim. Many of our young guests have accomplished this feat when staying here.

Describe the colors of the sunset as you walk along the beach to Sámara central for dinner. Or watch the sunset while enjoying a beverage under our ranchos. Use our strong WIFI signal and download a skymap application and search the sky for the Southern Cross, planets and other constellations. Listen to the ocean waves while drifting off to sleep.
