The treehouse inn is a great B&B with friendly staff and great breakfast. I stayed in a treehouse and was very happy with everything. The structures themselves are really cool teak structures with a living room with 2 couches, one can become a futon and semi-separate bedroom. Also a kitchen, fridge, and bathroom. Semi-seperate because while there is a wall with a door the wall does not go all the way to the top. They also have charcoal grills and outdoor sinks so making meals is a blast.
Every treehouse has 2 hammocks and 2 beach chairs as well as a table an grill underneath the actual structure. This place is set up for lounging out. The location is prime. Beach front, mostly unobstructed ocean views, and in the heart of Samara. There are some amazing restaurants and Soda's (tipical Costa Rican food) all around and a super market right across the street. It's really a great little hotel, but the price is pretty much the most they can charge without crossing in to a new price point and a new level of expectations.
Other posters have it right though when it comes the need for TLC. There needs to be some screens put in to the windows and doors. Our mosquito net had a small hole in it although I will say that we had absolutely no problems with bugs in our room save for the occasional ant which is basically part of the deal in Costa Rica. The bathrooms are a little tired, some of the kitchen appliances needed to be repaired or replaced. None of these problems really upset me though. The one thing that needs to happen is air conditioning in the tree houses.
Bottom line here is this is a great place for couples or families with 2 kids who want to cook a few meals themselves and have amazing beach access in a great town.
