The Treehouse is charming, clean, friendly. right in town, but sheltered within your own 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the ocean, you feel like you have the view to yourself. On the ground level you have your own outdoor eating area with hammocks and grill. exceptional value before you climb upstairs to your apartment. Close to all amenities. We would definitely...

Based on Tripadvisor's rating, we booked three nights with Samara TreeHouse Inn. Being right on the beach, the location is excellent. But there are so many bugs indoor and outdoor, it took the fun out of our stay. With no window screens and no air conditioning, it is impossible to sleep outside of the mosquito net at night. Before we...

The Treehouse Inn in Samara has lots of great reviews. I essentially concur. Charming place, great staff. I'll just add some thoughts you may find helpful in slecting a room there. Ther are six rooms. Four are the ones on stilts with direct views of the beach. The "poolside room" is the least expensive. The room is perfectly fine, but...

We stayed in three different Hotels/Hostels in Samara (backpacking with no reservations or plans) And during that we stayed in two different rooms in the Treehouse Inn, two nights in a ground floor room, one night in the treehouse. I was impressed with both. Secure, air conditioned, comfy, hot water, friendly staff. The treehouse was spectacular. I don't know what...

If you are going to be in Playa Samara don't stay any place else. Book your Tree House months before to be sure you'll have your place in the tree tops. This place has thought of everything. The attention to detail is just unreal. Amazing staff, oceanfront, secure. This place was so amazing I skipped out on visiting with family...

We loved Samara Treehouse Inn, every detail was fabulous. Great access to a fabulous beach, super breakfasts, the hospitality of Heidi and Veronica. Fantastic place to stay in Samara and not far from the great Beach Fried Chicken place. We wish we were back there right now.

Beautiful facility with unbeatable access to the beach and to local shopping and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and served breakfast every morning. They got the little details right, providing beach towels, kitchen supplies (awesome if you are buying fresh fruit), and secure parking.
