Spacious and clean rooms with good air conditioning and modern showers. Friendly helpful staff, tasty food, great location and monkeys in the trees next to the pool! Carillo Beach within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

Great rooms, great food and close to the beach! I recently brought my group of students to Samara and the location at Hideaway was perfect. The staff and management made the trip run so smoothly; I look forward to returning in the future!

Wonderful staff, large clean rooms, great surroundings and excellent food. All five minutes from the beach with beautiful wildlife all around. Doug and Rosie were superb hosts and we would love to come back again. Highly recommended.

Excellent food, great/helpful owners and staff, very nice large clean rooms, well manicured grounds with nice pool - bonus of daily visits from monkeys into the mango tree beside our patio. Easy walk to local beaches (1min to Samara beach, 5 min to Carillo beach)

Its about 2 hours from Liberia to the Hideaway. Just FYI: We decided not to rent a car and the hotel arranged a driver from a tour firm. For our family of 5 it was about $150. It was nice to have an air-conditioned van... More
