“I loved this place”
Reviewed 7 March 2009

Samara Treehouse is the best. Right on the beach and the staff is excellent. Cost includes breakfast each morning. There are only 4 bungalows so we stayed in the room by the pool which was good. I would definitely come back here anytime.

The Tree House Inn is one of the only hotels in Samara that is directly onto the beach and is very central and convenient to everything in town.
It is small with only 6 rooms and gets booked up in advance so definately make a reservation. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, but also very good at leaving you in peace. We went for our honeymoon in January and stayed for 10 days and had an amazing time. Each room has a private space either underneath or outside for hammocks and deckchairs, the plunge pool is great with an underwater sunbathing deck, but the direct access onto the beach is even better!
Highly recommended!!

Two years ago we stayed at Tree House and we loved the hotel so much, we decided to plan our wedding in Samara. Treehouse is a little too small to host a wedding but it was the perfect homebase for the week. We had the wedding party stay at these SPECTACULAR villas and the rest of our friends stayed at a beautiful neighbouring hotel. The staff at Tree house were so accommodating and the hotel offers everything you could want and more for a really reasonable rate - unbelievable views (you look directly out onto the ocean), great breakfast, full kitchen, an indoor and outdoor lounge area, etc. They also went above and beyond to make our wedding special. The hotel manager went into Nicoya (1 hour away) to get left flowers and champagne to leave in our room on the wedding day. It was the sweetest touch. They don't have air conditioning but we always felt a nice breeze from the ocean and kept the fans on. After travelling all over, I can honestly say that Tree House is my all time favourite!

The Treehouse Inn is by far the most amazing hotel for anyone.. we went for our honeymoon and it was everything one would want. Clean, attentive, attention to detail and the location makes it the best hotel in Samara.

The staff is friendly, the breakfast is delicous and you feel safe and taken care of.

The prices are great and the owner Joel is a very nice man.
We fell asleep to the sound of the ocean and woke up to the sound of the birds every day. Samara beach is a piece of heaven and the Treehouse Inn is the place to stay.

My husband and I spent 4 wonderful nights at the Samara Tree House Inn. It is like being in paradise. The oceanview is spectular, the staff wonderful and the tree house perfect. It is located directly on the beach, has a fantastic pool and the breakfast was delightful. Even though it was hot and humid during our visit, the ocean breeze was cooling as we spent some time relaxing in the comfortable hammocks. There is no better value in all of Samara. Our daughter has just re-located to Samara so we will be back and would not think of staying anywhere else. If you are going you have to stay here. Book early though because they are always full!

We had good expectation for Tree House after seeing other reviews and it lived up to them and more. I can not add anything to the other reviews. We had room 2 and great view of beach and sound of the surf. Spent 4 days relaxing at the end of our holiday and it was the best place we had. Did not want to leave.
Well done to everyone who helps to run the place.
