This was our second time at the Samara Tree House Inn, and we're already looking forward to another visit. Laura is an impeccable manager, and the staff are truly welcoming and diligent. Rooms are cleaned daily, breakfast is a treat, and the peace and quiet of the site are unbeatable. The two poolside rooms have air conditioning, which is fabulous...

This is the best place to stay in Samara. No overstating this......it is, without doubt, the place to stay. We stayed here in 2016 and loved it so much that we came back this year. And we are booked again for 2018. The rooms are cleaned every day. The facilities are looked after and kept clean. The pool, although not...

After our 2 week stay here last year we didn't get enough and returned again this year. Fabulous property where we stayed in a treehouse overlooking the most beautiful beach we've ever seen (and we've seen many!) Magnificent wooden structures, ours with a kitchenette and a spacious area below with table, chairs, hammocks, charcoal barbecue and sink. Open windows and...

Wonderful little place on the water and centrally located on tranquil Playa Samara. Great staff and excellent breakfasts. This is the third time we have stayed here over the last several years and it continues to be a pleasure.

We had a wonderful stay here! Breakfast was good and staff were fantastic! Can't beat the view and beach here! Laura and Oscar are truly great people as we got to know and become friends on a shuttle to Tamarindo! Definitely ask Oscar for shuttle service as he takes the extra step to welcome you!

This was our second visit to the Tree House and, again, had a fabulous time. The location is great, right on the beach so you have a lovely breeze all the time. The lack of A/C hasn't been an issue for us as it cools down enough at night and there is breeze as well as fans. The bedding and...

I was blown away when I showed up to the Tree House Inn. It surpassed any expectation I had..it was directly on the beach and stunning. The place was clean, had everything we needed, the views were out of this world, breakfast was delicious and most of all the staff were so lovely! My husband and I arrived and we...

Stayed in air conditioned unit 6, no kitchen but did have a mini fridge which was great. Only complaint was the very uncomfortable bed, however Oscar (manager) told us a new bed was on its way. Breakfast is included which is a nice touch. All the staff were friendly.....we all smile in the same language! Anything you needed or needed...

Unreal location literally on the beach, right in the center of samara! Amazing personal lounge area under your treehouse where breakfast is served, nice and shady with two hammocks also. Grounds neatly kept, secure gating onto beach. Lack of air con didn't really bother us. Compared to other places in Costa Rica I feel this hotel is excellent value. I...
