I loved, loved, loved my stay here. My favorite place during my trip to Costa Rica. I could have stayed forever. My beach-front bungalow was steps from the ocean, had an amazing view of the beach, and the front windows opened entirely. The bungalow itself was clean, had a small kitchen with fridge, stove, and even pots and pans provided.... More

Really enjoyed a four night stay in Tree House Inn poolside room. Breakfast was good and staff were very helpful. Right on the beach, with a great little surf rental/lesson place close by. Bring some bug repellent for your legs and feet to put on at dusk.

Thank you very much to Heidi and the rest of the fantastic staff for making my short stay last weekend so wonderful! It has been the third time I have visited this romantic little hotel directly on the beach. The view from the four beach front apartments is just breathtaking and it is just the sound of the waves which... More

On the beach and in the center of Samara. Perfect! Great view. We stayed here with two adults and two teenagers ( 14 and 16). The apartment is somewhat small for 4 people, but okay. Especially since the space under the apartment is perfect with hammocks and a table and an outdoor shower. Nice beach as well, waves are nice,... More

We just completed a two night stay at the tree house inn. You cannot beat the view and the location. Right on the beautiful in tranquil samara beach. Unfortunately, that is where the charm ends. After reading the reviews, we were very saddened by the service and the interior of the accommodations. We often had to wait for staff to... More

Hello, I want to respond to apologize and let you know that the timing of your visit was unfortunate, but as you can see from other reviews, the service at our hotel is usually excellent. The staff member you mentioned who was "finishing a cigarette" had actually been let go but we had to give two weeks' notice, so obviously... More

We arrived in Samara having alternative accommodation booked but after a nightmare situation with this, found ourselves walking through the town at night trying to find an alternative. We were extremely lucky that there was one room free at the Treehouse Inn for the length of our stay and were made to feel very well by the night porter Victor.... More

On our trip, we traveled to Arenal, Samara and Montezuma. Samara and the Tree House Inn was very best and most memorable part of our trip, hands down. In fact, it is the one place we have already discussed coming back to. We would stay no other place than at the Samara Tree House Inn, as no other hotel in... More

Thank you so much for the great review! We have considered putting AC units in the beachfront rooms, but we also have many guests who say that they love the big windows and the ocean breezes, so we have not done that yet.

We got a slightly cool welcome, but were allowed to check in a few hours early in the poolside cabin (to the left of the entrance). The service from the staff thereafter was excellent. We had some trouble with the toilet, which needed some careful attention to avoid flooding. Also, the breakfasts were underwhelming for the price range of the... More

The moment we pulled up, I knew this was someplace truly special. Four rough hewn "tree houses" on stilts overlook the ocean, a small pool perfect for dipping, and an additional suite that was a welcoming chill chamber after a day in the sun. We loved everything about this place. Breakfast each morning was delicious and coffee was generous. The... More
