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

My husband and I stayed at The Hideaway for three nights in early January. What a great place! Rosie and Doug (the owners) are wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful. Martina, the Manager, and all of the staff did all they could to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The hotel is quiet and secluded, but just steps to Samara beach... More

My friends and I stayed in the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom penthouse apartment over New Years 2014/2015 and it was such a great time. The hotel is clean and secluded with a great little restaurant and outdoor pool area in case you don't feel like heading to one of the many beautiful beaches or into Samara town. The owners and...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this lovely hotel for 3 nights, which was a great shame as we could have spent our whole trip there. The room was clean, bright and enormous! The hotel was clean, modern and the staff provided a 5* service. Luida was so funny and friendly, whilst Carlos made delicious cocktails! The hotel itself was... More

We loved the modern and absolutely charming hotel at the edge of Samara Beach. The staff, from the cleaning personal, to the cooks and servers, to the manager, were most helpful and professional but also showed a lot of personality and connected with everyone on a personal level. Manager Martina went out of her way to recommend and book terrific... More

This is a lovely small, chilled hotel and the service and staff at the hotel are excellent and incredibly helpful which makes this place good. The rooms are 3+ star but I think personally a little overpriced as its not quite 4 star. The pool is pretty small which given that most people are out on trips its always free.... More
