What a gem this place is. We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful quiet hotel with excellent staff. The location is perfect as you can walk to the beach. Many thanks to the superfriendly hotelstaff!
Lovely, clean, safe hotel within walking distance from beach. Beautiful pool area. This is a great place for couples or families. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. The hotel will assist in making reservations for day trips from Sámara. The hotel’s free breakfast was delicious!
My stay at the hideaway was going to be 3 days. I extended it to 17 days! The rooms are spacious, well-appointed, and each have a cozy balcony. The grounds are landscaped beautifully, which adds to the privacy guests feel walking through the hotel grounds. If you don't feel like going to Samara for food and want to continue lounging at the lovely pool, no worries: the restaurant at the Hideaway is excellent. And location, location, location! You are just a few steps away from the beach. My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing sunset or sunrise walk into Samara each day from the Hideaway. It's perfectly situated between Samara and Carrillo Beach (another amazing beach). And perhaps most importantly, the amazing staff. All staff were kind, attentive and very knowledgable. Don't be surprised if you end up extending your stay. You won't regret it!…
very nice hotel in Samara; The rooms are big and very nice. The breakfast is very good and with the pool view. the personnel at the reception is very nice and professional. One of our best hotel in Costa Rica !
This place is an amazing little gem! It is a small and very intimate hotel with an amazing restaurant and great location. It is very safe a quiet. I have never had a relationship like I had with the staff here. I knew all their names and they knew mine. They were helping from the moment I booked the reservation! It was so nice to have a restaurant at the hotel. The food was also AMAZING! Each morning they serve you made to order breakfast with delicious fruit, juice, and coffee. The hotel is a short walk to the beach. Would definitely return (and hope to)! Thanks for everything!
Our accommodations were as expected, clean, comfortable and safe. The staff is friendly, providing impeccable service both at the front desk and restaurant. Nick the owner is welcoming and steered us in the right direction w recommendations on sights and restaurants. Thank you to everyone at The Hideaway ! We will be back ...
A small property, beautiful landscaped, well-maintained, with clusters of two-story units around a pool.. For us the location was perfect... near everything but secluded. Just a short walk down a quiet road to the nicest part of Playa Samara...near Isla Chora. About a 7 minute drive to the town or a 30 minute stroll down the beach.to the town.. A bonus is it's just a few minutes drive to Playa Carrillo, a beautiful beach. Our second floor unit was quiet, private, spacious and clean. The AC was quiet, wifi excellent, and we really liked the luggage organizer and the patio. One minor issue was with some big fast-moving ants coming in somehow in the shower area - creeped us out a little but no big deal. Staff did not seem concerned The staff were actually very very good.... enthusiastic and helpful. Requests were handled immediately. They set us up with a few kayaking tours at last minute which were excellent. The dining experience is by the pool, no frills, casual, straightforward. Multiple breakfast choices. Dinner was heavy on sauces but nicely prepared. Recommend stay with the Hideaway for meals.....we tried two highly rated restaurants in town for dinner and they were quite inferior to the Hideaway. After exploring the area we can say with confidence we were very pleased with our choice of the Hideaway and that would certainly be the accommodation we choose next time we are in the area.…
Location was just on the outskirts of town which is perfect if you just want to relax but if you need some action you can walk the beach to town, which I definitely recommend. Nice clean pool with a lovely patio that flows right into the restaurant. All the staff are amazing. The owner even offered to help me with luggage to the second floor room.
We stayed in a large, very comfortable, quiet room with a large bathroom and a patio. The personalized service, cleanliness of the property, and meals were top notch. Also, when we left some belongings behind, the owner went above and beyond to return them to us in Canada.
I was lucky enough to spend my 80th birthday with family at this hotel. The staff did everything to make us welcome and feel like it was our home. The facilities are very well maintained and clean. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable and within a short walking distance of the pool and the restaurant. The location is a close to the town of Samara and reachable by taxi of golf cart. It also is just a short walk up the beach. I will definitely return
