We have just arrived back home from our trip to Costa Rica. Eight days and five hotels. "The Hideaway" is on top of our list. It is a small boutique style hotel conveniently positioned within a walking distance to one of the most spectacular beaches we have seen in Costa Rica. If you value serenity and love nature this place... More

My wife and I have never been out of the USA on vacation. What an amazing trip we had! We went to Costa Rica with our yoga group from central Florida and had an amazing time. My wife and I arrived to our room with a special arrangement of flowers and a "happy belated honeymoon" card from the staff. Our... More

The Hideaway Hotel was amazing! A luxury resort located in a beautiful remote Samara Beach. The room was spacious and airy. The food was amazing and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. A nice 40 min walk to downtown Samara via the beach. I am planning to return to The Hideaway on an annual basis.

We had no plans for our 2 weeks in Costa Rica, we made a few reservations for the beginning and the end, but left the middle of the visit wide open. Our hotel in Monte Verde suggested we check out Playa Samara. So very glad we did. Spent our first night in another establishment. Got up in the morning and... More

The rooms are very clean, the bathroom very spacious, and the room area is huge. The beach is peaceful, and the town magical. Highly recommended. Maybe the TV is pretty old, but we didn't go to see the TV, and the signal was very week. I recommend them to change the tv set, and to amplified the WiFi channel. But... More

This is my second time in the hotel, the place it's very nice and the rooms and everything it's good, until I did my check out. There was no manager on duty to solve problems with the check out. I'm very worried about the safety of my personal information when I share it with the hotel, after check out a... More

Saludos Sr. Correla--We appreciate your comments that everything is very nice with our hotel, and we're glad that you are a repeat guest. I'm glad that we had a chance to speak tonight. As we discussed on the phone, our hotel staff did not call you regarding your credit card. That may have been your credit card company. We always... More

Although the section of beach that this hotel is a short walk from was not one of our favorites, the small and very nice Hideaway Hotel was wonderful and just a short drive into the town of Samara. The rooms were unbelievably spacious, the AC reliable and the staff was warm and welcoming. It is a small hotel that feels... More

I booked our stay based on TripAdvisor reviews and am happy to say that staying here did not disappoint. Our extended family stayed in two different rooms and we were a short walk (20 steps) away from one another. We enjoyed the clean rooms that surround the pool and, as others have said, felt like we were practically the only... More
