This was our second time staying at the Samara Tree House Inn and it remains one of our favorite spots. The staff are amazing and so accommodating. The location of the Inn is 2nd to none. Right on and pretty much dead center of Playa Samara, it is walking distance to some of the best restaurants in the area. The... More

The Tree House in Samara was much more than I had hoped for. It was beautiful and clean, relaxing, I cannot say enough about my experience. I fell in love with everyone that worked there. Breakfast in the morning was delightful. Fresh fruit, pancakes, french toast, omelet, coffee. I loved sitting at my table under the tree and drinking my... More

Great staff, great location. we were able to park here within the compound and walk to anywhere in town. The pool is great but the beach is beautiful. Breakfast was great as well. There is a small grocery/liquor store across the street that came in real handy. If you book a room here on the internet, I would call the... More

I cannot speak more highly of the staff here, especially laura. The staff is more than willing to make sure your stay is perfect. The bungalows are so incredibly beautiful and unique. The bungalows are the perfect balance of being able to look out on your balcony and watch all the beach activity while still maintaining a sense of privacy.... More

Pura Vida! The heart of the beach...we chose this location because of its beach access and were pleasantly surprised by other ammenities due to its location. There is a grocery/convenience store directly across the street great for grabbing ice cold Imperial tall boys, fresh avocados and pineapples or aloe when you've stayed out in the sun too long (in other...

This was our fifth trip to Samara and we always stay at the Treehouses. We came with a group of 6 couples and took over all of the units. The staff was great in meeting all our needs. We look forward to coming back.

We were finally starting to relax poolside and by the beach after a long and hellacious trip to Samara. But, as soon as we went upstairs to take a shower, a maintenance man walked in on us naked. I am sure we not only had the door closed, but locked. We also had the bathroom door closed when he walked... More

Really beautiful place to stay - and right on the beach. The people working here were really nice as well. Would recommend going for one of the small houses on the stilts as they have amazing views and nice areas downstairs with hammocks etc to chill out. Town is really nice as well.

We spent several days at the Tree House in early August for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing! Has to be one of the most amazing places to stay on the beach in Costa Rica: hammocks, daily fresh breakfast, assistance booking tour guides, great staff, awesome nearby restaurants, and a pool! We would highly recommend staying here and we... More
