What an amazing place! From the moment we stepped foot on the property we loved it. The staff are amazing, the room quaint. The breakfasts were very tasty! And the view from the room spectacular! What do you say about a place as great as this?? You say "We are coming back!". Which we are.....in six short months! And this... More

Just got back from Nicaragua, which was incredible, but a year ago had a great experience at the Tree House Inn. If going to Samara, most definitely stay there. Beautiful layout, right on the beach. Defy you to argue how this place doesn't rule! Highly recommended.

This is a great place to stay in Samara. The view from the tree houses is beautiful and it is enormously convenient to be able to just go to the beach without having to think about packing bags, leaving valuables unattained and so on. Many other reviews have covered the positive aspects that I second but do not want to... More

We were going to stay here four nights but due to a mixup we only stayed one night. The view from the room is great - huge windows looking right out on the beach. Underneath your bungalow are lounges and hammocks, and barbecue. Breakfast was lovely. Staff is friendly and diligent. Downside is the beach is so close that this... More

We stayed here 2 nights and wished we had booked longer. The treehouse was amazing. The view was breathtaking and we loved being able to see the ocean from bed. Having beach access was great & the outdoor shower was a plus. The hotel is right next to some amazing restaurants. Samara is a fun city with nightlife and lots... More

What can I say. It is such a wonderful place!! My already very high expectation wasn't disappointed at all. The place is so beautiful, right at the beach! Staff is super friendly! The whole concept of this inn is just perfect: With all the luxury of an hotel, but still so small, familiar and non-hotel-feely. You have a private terrace... More

I have traveled the entire country of Costa Rica, and this is truly the best place I have been. The staff I have gotten to know personally and look forward to seeing them every time I come. Waking every morning to the ocean And beach is something that attracts me each time. The town of Samara is quaint and the... More

I travelled to Costa Rica with my daughter and she picked this place for us. We were in #2 and it was fantastic. You are right on the beach, the place is cleaned daily and was spotless. Good shower and comfortable bed. My daughter slept on the futon and enjoyed having the breezes. It was very hot when we were... More

My husband and I with our daughters and their husbands stayed in Bungalows 2, 3, and 4 for the best family vacation ever. The beachfront location was perfect for enjoying the gorgeous ocean views from the minute we woke up. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the immaculate amenities - beach chairs, hammocks, an outdoor grill which we used after Isamar... More
