We stayed here (the best room: # 12) for four days and had a terrific experience. We were the only guests for the first two days; our own private resort! The property was beautifully landscaped and manicured, the pool was nicely sized, the rooms were clean and tastefully decorated, the balcony was perfectly sized, staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, music was great (just for you, Doug!) and the food was exceptional! Unfortunately, because we were the only guests for the first two days, the kitchen was not open after breakfast (completely understandable) which meant we only had two incredible lunches and dinners at the Hideaway. All of the food/dessert/drinks we experienced were absolutely perfect, including the price.
We had howler monkeys pass through the mango tree off our balcony each day and we could hear the ocean surf as well. The walk to Samara beach literally took one minute. The beach was stunning, it was wide and completely clean. We walked (45 minutes) the beach to Samara, most was soft sand but there were some stretches with rocks. Equally stunning was the Carrillo beach which is a 10 minute walk along the road.
I would highly recommend the Hideaway, it's truly a hidden gem! We would definitely return, especially for the frozen drinks, ice cream and dinner selections!
