I loved my stay in Samara and this place had a lot to do with that. It's very centrally located, right on the beach, units 3 and 4 have the best views, friendly staff, and breakfast is included. We used the pool a lot as it's cooler than the ocean on a humid day! Also loved cruising in the hammocks...

Cons - Very pricey - the initial cost is highest in Samara then they charge $30 extra per person kids sharing a 2 person bungalow with parents. This...

We spend 3 wonderful days at the Samara Tree House! They were the best part of our trip to Costa Rica, EVERYONE was so friendly and nice. The tree house was so much fun to stay in. The hammocks were a blast! Treehouse rooms don't have AC but there are fans and the ocean breeze is wonderful. Not buggy for...

We loved our stay here! The rooms are adorable and being right on the quiet beach front was amazing. The pool was always clean, the breakfast delicious, staff was friendly. I loved that every room had a hammock outside. The rooms have a nice kitchenette and the downstairs rooms have AC. If you drive, there are parking spots available in...

Cute place to stay. Note that the poolside rooms have AC and the treehouse rooms have multiple fans and windows that completely open to virtually an open wall to view ocean and be lulled to sleep with crashing waves. Place was great and Playa Samara is quaint and not overrun by tourist, at least in July. The surf school next...

I stayed here the first week of May in one of the tree houses and was very happy with the hotel. You can't beat the location, as it is right on the beach. The tree houses are unique--a small apartment style casita, with a patio, table and hammocks below each house. It is only steps from the patio to the...

Esther Diaz and her staff made my visit to Samara a dream come true. I stayed at Treehouse Inn for a week in June 2012. Treehouse has a gorgeous location right at the beach; very clean and spacious rooms (and bathrooms are beautiful and large); clean and lovely pool; 24-hour security (with visible nighttime guard at the desk); gated security...

We actually had confirmed reservations at another hotel in Samara which we had made on-line. When we arrived we were informed that our reservation was a mistake that the place was being totally renovated. Tree House Inn was recommended to us. We had seen it on-line also but thought it was a little too expensive for us. When we got...

As all the reviews mention, this place is right on the beach and the best location in Samara. There are several bars and restaurants steps down the beach in either direction and there are a couple surfing lesson businesses in front as well. The staff are very friendly and helped us with any questions we had. We actually stayed in...

I stayed four nights at this hotel, the breakfast was lovely and the choice was nice. Given the weather while I was there, I did not get a chance to use the onsite BBQ (shame).
