La Dolce Vita

Italian in Playa Sámara

Life is sweet when you're sitting under a giant palapa on the sand, drinking a smoothie and watching the surfers. This is a popular spot for pizza and sundowners, thanks to affable Italian owners and a prime beachfront locale.

Life is even sweeter when your bed is just a few meters away. The interior-facing guest rooms have bamboo furniture and jewel-painted walls.
