On our trip, we traveled to Arenal, Samara and Montezuma. Samara and the Tree House Inn was very best and most memorable part of our trip, hands down. In fact, it is the one place we have already discussed coming back to. We would stay no other place than at the Samara Tree House Inn, as no other hotel in town comes close to what this hotel offers. It is located smack dab on the beach, steps away from the small town, with several great beach front restaurants within a hundred yards on either side. The surf school is right next door. There is a grocery store with everything one needs right across the street which was perfect. The hotel itself is quaint, unique and homey, and the small pool is great for a dip. We are a family of four, traveling with 2 young adult daughters, so we decided to get one beach front room, as well as one of the pool side rooms so we would have two bathrooms and ample space for the 4 of us. That was a great choice. We felt that the beach front room would have been too small for 4 adults. It had one room with a queen bed, and in the front room were two day beds. One of the day-beds is full sized and an adult can sleep on it, but the other one is not long enough for an adult - it would be OK for a child. There is a charming patio underneath the tall rooms,which was perfect. Had we stayed more than 3 days, we would have made use of the bar-b-q for sure. The staff was absolutely accommodating, friendly and helpful! Francesca was the best! The lack of air conditioning in the ocean front rooms was noticeable, and that would be my only complaint. Luckily we had a nice breeze that came up 2 of the 3 nights, making those nights quite nice. There was A/C in the room by the pool, and the girls were very happy about that. Yes, our only wish to the owners would be that they opt to put in A/C in the front units before we come back next year! 10 out of 10 gold stars without a doubt, and WE WILL come back again!
