Lonely Planet review
A cute Italian-themed place with canary yellow, sponge painted rooms in a hacienda huddled between two pools. It's in the center of town so it ain't quiet, but the colorful African art and leafy landscape offer plenty of charm. Rooms aren't huge but they are bright, and have bamboo desks and ceramic tile. They offer US$10 discounts for cash payment.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Giada and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Playa Sámara.
