Great place to park your car and walk everywhere. Fantastic little tree houses right on a beautiful beach. Our tree house #4 was perfect blend of beach view and nice privacy. Did not have to worry about the beach gawkers seeing into your place( a lot of people will stop and take pictures.) I loved each breakfast and all were different. Fresh fruit and either pancakes/french toast Or some type of eggs. The pool was my saving grace, when it became too hot for the beach, the pool was always refreshing and clean. Staff was extremely friendly expect one guy, never smiled and did not say a word to you. Kinda creepy. Always had fresh coffee for us early risers. Our last night we were moved to an apartment, which was nice with A/C but the toilet would not flush. Samara is awesome, lots of little eats right on beach. Also great restaurants in the small town. NO big condos or commercialism. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Any of the tree houses seem nice. Spoke with a family in #5 and said they had an ant problem. #4 has...

If you can get a room at the Samara Tree House do not look any further...the location, the views, the staff are great! Just think 24/7 a view of the ocean and the sound of the waves from your bed..yes, there are a couple of downside issues (no AC in the 4 tree house efficiencies, the lounge chairs are plastic), but so what the experience is so special one quickly forgets when you are on the hammock dozing...just enjoy!

My husband and daughter and I spent 6 days in Samara last November. We loved the Tree House Inn. The space was plenty big for the three of us. We loved that the beach was right outside our door and you were lulled to sleep by the ocean every night. My daughter and I are always the ones to bitten by any bugs and this was no exception. The open air hut was great for sound and ambiance, but not so much for the bugs. My daughter loved that there was a pool on site so event when we were not in the ocean, she could be in the pool. The staff was friendly even though there was a mix up with our room and we ended up moving locations. The owners of the property happened to be in town when we were there and were extremely generous. They took us and several other guests on a waterfall tour on their property. We also went on a turtle excursion late one night. All in all, I would, and have recommended this property to all.

Veronica, the women at the front desk is amazing! the place is amazing for people looking to relax and have a good time! You are right on the beach and there are plenty of resturants and activities nearby. We loved the look of the place, it had everything we needed and then some. Breakfast was served every morning and there was a variety throughout the week! The pool was great and can I get an amen for free wifi!! LOVE! We are already planning our one year anniversary visit back to Samara! The locals are amazing, beaches are not crowded and everyone is so friendly! See ya next year tree house! :)

Room Tip: The tree houses are great, but if you need air conditioning make sure you get a pool-side unit!

We stayed for one week and enjoyed it very much.

Beach - Very nice, brown sand and warm water
Pool - Great to cool down in
Rooms - Comfortable with great views (Only negative -tree house units don't have A/C)
Breakfast - Ask for the pancakes!!
Location - Samara is a small town so it's easy to walk anywhere. There is a small grocery store right across the street. Language school, many restaurants, 2 banks, 2 car rentals, bakery, etc. all within 10 min walk.

The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Poolside units have AC. Treehouse units do not.

Ahhhh where to begin. We LOVED this hotel! Absolute perfect location if you are staying in Samara. Directly on the best part of the beautiful beach. Small grocery store across the street that has everything you need from shampoo to ice cream to fresh fruit and veggies. The tree houses themselves are amazing. We stayed in #2 and had a perfect view of the Pacific. #2 is the one farthest to the left looking out at the beach and I highly recommend this room because we had the most privacy at our underneath table/hammock area because of some trees. The bed was comfy and the room well appointed with a full kitchen and huge fridge. No need for AC at all. It actually got cool at night with the sea breeze and the ceiling fans on full blast. Breakfast was decent. Didn’t expect too much for it being free but the pancakes were good and the eggs and gallo pinto were tasty. The pool right in the middle of the property was clean, cool and refreshing. Actually cold at times because it is in the shade most of the day. The staff was nice and Veronica the manager was the BEST! She helped so much and was so pleasant to talk to and be around. Samara is a great little town. There is a handful of really good places to eat on both sides of the hotel. Our favorite was a little beach bar down to the left when you walk out on the beach from the gate. We met so many great people both at the hotel and around town. We will be back to Samara and I may look into buying a business in the area in the future. I definitely recommend this hotel. I would stay for a month if I could!!

Room Tip: #2 or #3 have the best views

Beautiful location, friendly staff, nice little pol, very rustic place. You will hear every step in that apartment. No baby cots available but a sofa bed possible to use. Fully equipped kitchen is a plus. Different breakfast every day - variation of pancakes, eggs and french toasts + fruit during our stay. Our apartment no. 5 was full of red ants, upon our request the place was sprayed but that did not intimidate them. Our repelent did not seem to work on them either. If you do not expect luxury and do not suffer insect phobia, this is a great place to be.
