Stayed for 4 nights here 2 weeks ago, had a great time. Doug and Rosie (the owners) are real people who want you to have a great stay and be comfortable, they are generous, fun and happy people. It felt a little like we were visiting their home. It's not fancy, but it IS classy and Clean. The grounds: simple,... More

I recently got married in Playa Samara and had my entire wedding group stay at the Hideaway for our destination wedding. The owners Rosy and Doug and their entire staff were beyond amazing. Many in my group had not traveled internationally much or at all, some were older or had physical limitations, there were 3 kids, and most did not... More

We recently stayed at the Hideaway and had a perfect vacation. The location is great...not too far away from the action but far enough from the commotion. The area is safe and secure, and you have your choice of beaches to walk to. The rooms are terrific, as is the pool, restaurant, and bar. The staff is outstanding.

We stayed at the Hideaway Hotel for three nights in March, 2014. We had a fantastic stay there. As a family of four with two young children who aren't the best sleepers, we reserved two rooms, one on top of the other, and this worked perfectly for us. One parent and one child in each room meant that everyone got... More

This was our second trip to Guanacaste province in Costa Rica. We passed the little dirt road to the Hideaway many times as we drove between Playa Carrillo and Samara every day. Somehow "The Hideaway" sounded like a biker bar and we always stupidly dismissed it. Fortunately, fate brought us to this fantastic little hotel, with top notch amenities, great... More

When we were planning our trip, our first thought was to go directly to The Hideaway since we had such a great experience three years ago and hoped to repeat it. "They" say you can never go back, but this trip and experience of the hotel was exactly the way we expected and totally contributed to the wonderful vacay that... More

We stayed at the Hideaway Hotel for a week in March 2014. Pool is great food is fabulous, including homemade pasta and icecream! Staff is awesome, especially Brian and Dixie. Doug and Rosie went out of their way to help us with tours, restaurants and other info. Rooms are large and clean and the birds and monkeys were a bonus.... More

Had a great time at the Hideaway. My wife and I visited with another couple for several days. Doug was a very gracious host. Quiet peaceful hotel. The mango margaritas were outstanding. Short walk to Carillo beach. Nice pool. Left fresh fruit in our refrigerator the night before we left for our early morning fishing trip. Went out on the... More
