I see how The Hideaway Hotel in Playa Samara got its name. It truly is a lovely, serene place to hideaway. We were greeted warmly by Martina (mgr) and she gave us the run down on the restaurant and the great beach amenities they have to borrow and the high tide, low tide posting at the front desk. The grounds... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a nice restaurant beside the pool with an extensive menu. It is a short walk to the beach. The beach is great to explore at low tide. Make sure you good water shoes as many rocks if you go to the western edge.

Good, friendly people...YES. Clean, safe property...YES. Good food, but boring menu...YES. Convenient to beach...well...if you want to take a comfortable walk. The rooms? Well, plenty of space and clean but furniture could use upgrading. Room privacy? Not without all curtains closed. Bar and restaurant closes too early (8pm). Pool is small but refreshing.

The staff is very friendly, food is good and the rooms are large and clean with air conditioning. It is a lovely quiet place to stay in walking distance to 2 different beaches. Carrillo beach with it's palm trees for shade is one of the most beautiful I have seen on the Pacific coast in Costa Rica.

This is a relatively new place and is well designed and maintained. It's close to the beach in Samara (you can hear the ocean) and, more importantly for us, the one at Playa Carillo, which is even nicer. They provide beach towels and chairs on request - very helpful. But all the amenities aside, it was the staff that made... More

Rosy and Doug are great hosts! Property was spotless. Staff friendly and very helpful. Breakfast order put in night before for our early departure. Our second visit and we already felt like family! Thanks again, The Mccanes

It was very hot on the day we arrived from cool Monteverde so we loved the air conditioning. It became a problem though when something caused the unit outside to start vibrating and we didn't think we'd have a restful sleep as a result - it was loud enough to really bother us. When we complained to the front desk... More

Very nice. Super clean. The beds are comfy and they give you lots of pillows which seems hard to come by here in Costa Rica. They also have air con. We just spent one night here but I didn't want to leave. We ate dinner at they hotel by the pool and they had a couple playing guitar and singing.... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Good air conditioning! The surroundings tropical and beautiful. Lots of entertaining wildlife. Beautiful sunsets on a nice beach. Good food, All this overshadowed by the friendly accomplished staff. Always willing to help. And the prices were very reasonable for high season. Would say here again!!!!!

Our family of four stayed at the Hideaway in late December. Clean rooms, beautiful pool, great food. Martina and the staff were superb in every way, from concierge services to making us feel at home. Even though it is a good 30 min walk on the beach to the village, and not many choices of activities right on the beach... More
