The staff are extremely helpful. They know local beaches and places to eat. The rooms are clean and is very nice. The hotel is in a perfect location. You can walk to an almost empty part of Playa Samara. I would recommend visiting Playa Carrillo, which is a short drive/medium walk down the road. All in all this hotel was...

Stayed for six nights Just 12 rooms, and very well maintained. Can go to the beaches, or hang by the pool. Good food at the on-site restaurant. Staff (especially Martina and Carlos) are very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I stayed at the Hideaway Hotel for 4 nights during our Honeymoon. It was exactly as advertised: quiet, clean, 2 minute walk from the beach (30 minutes relaxing walk to the center of Samara by beach), and had delicious fresh fish and mango margaritas. There was lots of animal life around the property, we saw many birds...

We stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. The staff is very helpful and service minded. Location is ok, but it is a pretty long walk along the beach to the bars and restaurants (30-40 min). Two things that would really make this place fantastic is an expansion of the pool area as it is quite tight and changing...

Beautiful hotel, 5 minute drive to town, 2 minute walk to beach for sunsets and 10 minute walk to beautiful Carillo beach (look for the sand crabs!). We stayed in room 12, which was probably the most secluded room at the secluded hotel. Our porch was level with the tree branches that the howler monkeys used on their daily commute,...

We loved staying at this hotel. It was a little ways away from the downtown area, but, nothing like a walk on the beach to get to the bars and restaurants. The property is safe, clean and very well attended to. The staff is one of the best things about this place. Lloyda and Raquel are FANTASTIC!! Thank you for...

Best location in Samara. Steps away from the beach. The rooms are big and clean. Nice restaurant that will make special dishes for you on request. The hotel has a great atmosphere. Thanks to, Martine, and all my friends at the Hideway for a wonderful vacation.

We stopped here for lunch one day. What a great place! Loved the atmosphere. We did not stay here, but came back for 2 dinners. The staff was amazing. The food was wonderful. I did not see the rooms, but the hotel was clean and beautiful. Very appealing! I would stay here if I came back to Costa Rica.

The layout and design of the hotel and its garden like grounds echo the 'hideaway' name. The staff are very helpful and pleasant, and the pool is great. The hotel manages to have the effect of large hotel facilities in a more intimate setting, with comfortable large rooms. We were almost surprised how nice it is.

We had a lovely three night stay in this quiet, relaxing little hotel. It's removed from the hustle & bustle of Samara itself, but within walking distance along the beach. The room was a generous size and pleasantly decorated. There was a relaxing dining/pool area, with iguanas wandering around the grounds. The staff were friendly and attentive, with a special...
