Location is amazing, it is literally what you dream about when you think about having a holiday view. we had been looking forward to staying here for so long and it exceeded our high expectations. the breakfast pancakes were incredible. I decided to propose to my girlfriend here, i told the staff this and they went out of their way to help me, the Head receptionist Isamar even coming back after her shift to prepare the room with flowers, petals everywhere, candles all the way through the apartment and stairway, making swans into a love heart and just making a fantastic site when we walked in. We will never be able to thank them enough for how special they made the occasion and how deeply they seem to care. we hope to return to costa rica one day as it truly is a fantastic place to visit and we would certainty be staying here. It is a fantastic place, there will be insects though such as mosquitos and ants but we have travelled all over costa rica and there is no escaping this. the housekeepers will make your room look like a million dollars every morning so it is fine. i wish them all the best as they have a great product.

Room Tip: get one of the beach side room if you can as the views are amazing and your hammocks overlook the beach.

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 to go back for a 2nd time in the same trip.
These high class, polished to an absolute sheen tree house are a home away from home. Set up your self for a week of relaxation. Upstairs I your room, bathroom and kitchen. Downstairs is your patio with BBQ, hammock, picnic table and pool. Just beyond that is the gate to the beautiful beach. Your breakfast is served to you daily at the time you chose and in the location you chose. This place is owned by an American that must have OCD because I have never had such a clean room or grounds in a 3rd world country.

Room Tip: I would pick the tree house all the way to the front left side.

Thank you so much for the enthusiastic review! We would love to take credit for being OCD :-) and on top of the details you mentioned, but that goes to our staff who take enormous pride in keeping the hotel looking great! We hope to see you again soon at the Treehouse!

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.

Room Tip: Try the Beachfront rooms on stilts. No need for AC, only a fan and the ocean breeze.

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.

Stayed end of February and beginng of March 2013. Staff is so friendly - so are the guests. Great facility - breakfast was tasty - Book it NOW! Open air rooms - maybe a few bugs and stuff so don't be fussy!
The town is fun - best beach bars ever. Beach walks were excellent - food is super (especially if you like mexican). Thanks to Heidi and all. Can't wait to come back - Wicker and Sally
