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

I stayed with my family at the Hideaway at the end of April. It was a great time to visit as it wasn’t too crowded. Easy access to multiple beaches and a short drive to town. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were great and made very good food and drinks. We will definitely be back.
