Fodor's Expert Review Sámara Tree House Inn
Beach road, across from supermarket, Sámara, Guanacaste, 50205, Costa Rica
One of the few hotels right on the beach, this small inn has lofty, breezy bungalows up at palm-tree level, perfect for folks who love the open air and looking down on the beach action. Guests climb up wood stairs to the separate "tree-house" cabins, each set on tree-trunk pillars with hammocks slung between at ground level, plus a table and two beach chairs and a barbecue grill set out on small patches of grass. Each cabina has a kitchenette, ceiling fan, and wall-size, unscreened window to let in as much sea air as possible. Mosquito nets over the beds protect from any unwanted visitors at night. A ground-floor cabina and one other smaller room ($89) by the pool and Jacuzzi have air-conditioning. There's a bar by the pool and breakfast is served at nearby tables shaded by a thatch roof. There's safe parking for six cars.
