Just got back from 2 days in the treehouse. Well...actually one day in the treehouse, and one day in cabin #1. It was the perfect combination of being up in the air one day and getting the ocean breezes, and one day being on the ground not having to climb stairs and getting back into the air conditioning! Anyway, the...

The location was just perfect, spoiled us for the rest of the trip. The treehouses are right on the beach. So close we left our stuff in our private area, went into the ocean, walked back to lounge in our own shaded hammocks. It was perfect to be able to relax, have shade and be right on the beach and...

100% recommend every single facet of this location! We stayed in treehouse #2 and it was the coolest room we have ever seen! It's seriously and no lie a treehouse! Gorgeous views, super awesome ambiance, AMAZING staff, comfy bed and a set-up for long term stays (kitchen included). The community is very small so enjoy meeting people by the pool...

Staying at the Samara Tree House blew every where else in Costa Rica out of the water! We arrived around 8ish at night and we're pleasantly greeted by the Laura and other staff, whom were super friendly. There is parking right in front, which is gated and locked so no need to worry about that. The rooms were AMAZING -...

When we arrived at the Samara Tree House Inn, we were immediately welcomed, even though we were early, and allowed to park in their secure lot while our room was getting ready. The Inn is right on the beach, literally around 100 yards to the surf. Once we made it to our room, we were met with what is probably...

This was our second time at the Samara Tree House Inn, and we're already looking forward to another visit. Laura is an impeccable manager, and the staff are truly welcoming and diligent. Rooms are cleaned daily, breakfast is a treat, and the peace and quiet of the site are unbeatable. The two poolside rooms have air conditioning, which is fabulous...

This is the best place to stay in Samara. No overstating this......it is, without doubt, the place to stay. We stayed here in 2016 and loved it so much that we came back this year. And we are booked again for 2018. The rooms are cleaned every day. The facilities are looked after and kept clean. The pool, although not...

After our 2 week stay here last year we didn't get enough and returned again this year. Fabulous property where we stayed in a treehouse overlooking the most beautiful beach we've ever seen (and we've seen many!) Magnificent wooden structures, ours with a kitchenette and a spacious area below with table, chairs, hammocks, charcoal barbecue and sink. Open windows and...

Wonderful little place on the water and centrally located on tranquil Playa Samara. Great staff and excellent breakfasts. This is the third time we have stayed here over the last several years and it continues to be a pleasure.
