“Clean, Charming hotel in Samara Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2009

Excellent Hotel located only a few yards to the beach! Rosy and her staff took excellent care of my boyfriend and I during our 3 night stay in Samara- They took care of arranging day trips, transportation and restaurant reccomendations for us- The pool was a lovely addition after long days exploring the cute little town. This small, charming hotel was super clean and the rates were excellent. The staff even prepared some freshly caught fish we had caught during a day fishing excursion for us, which was awesome! Definatly would reccommend to anyone looking for a clean, friendly, reasonably priced location in Samara- close to beach, but a little trek to the center of town, so be prepared for a nice walk to dinner/ or a taxi ride...

Hideaway is a little gem of a hotel. We have stayed on two different occasions and loved it both times. This time we brought family members and they could not believe how great the hotel was for the price. Everything is super clean, staff is very friendly and service is great. The congos also showed up, which made for some great pictures. A perfect little hotel by a perfect beach.

I recently had the pleasure of spending a night at the Hideaway Hotel in Playa Samara, Costa Rica. The hotel has a distinctly European flavour and boasts comfortable beds, reasonable prices for food and drink, and a spectacular location close to an almost deserted magnificent palm tree studded tropical beach. Well appointed bedrooms, fresh local foods for breakfast, and very friendly and efficient staff made this a most memorable visit. The owner even found time to do a little computer trouble shooting with me!!

We were chought by surprise when we came to hideaway hotel. It is the best hotel we`ve been to in this pricerange. Friendly staff combined with spacy and nice rooms made this into the best accomodation during this holliday (even compared to some of the hotels that costed three times the price). The fact that it`s hidden away gave us the feeling of total relaxation. But it is also close enough to Samara so that you easily can get there. The staff was very helpfull with affordable packages on fishing and dolphin-safaries. Nice breakfast aswell.

Two happy norwegians

We stayed five nights at The Hideaway and loved every minute of it. It was recommended to us by an acquaintance and the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor convinced us to book it. Still, we didn't expect everything to be so perfect.

The hotel itself is new with high-quality furnishings throughout, large rooms and huge bathrooms beautifully tiled. The half-moon pool is gorgeous and the lounging arear and gardens are wonderful. The food served is quite good with excellent brownies and guacamole.

All of the staff is attentive and owners Rosy and Doug go out of their ways to make sure their guests are comfortable and that everything is just right.

We thoroughly enjoyed our mini-vacation and would absolutely recommend this wonderful gem to everyone.

This hotel is lovely, well planned and thought out. Our hosts were very helpful and fun to be with. Hotel room was spacious, pretty, and spotlessy clean. Just a short walk to a beautiful and almost secluded part of the beach.
Thanks again Rosie and Doug, we highly recomend your hotel.

We loved our week stay at the Hideaway Hotel. The rooms were very clean, well appointed and tastefully decorated.

The staff went above and beyond our expectations.They helped us book our activites when we were ready and even cooked the fish we caught from our deep sea fishing trip.

They offer snacks, a bar (great bartender), and a dinner menu which provides flexibility if you do not want to go into town for a meal.

We found the service to be more personal as in a B&B but it was never in your face.

The breakfast served by the pool was an easy way to wake up. The pool is a nice alternative to the beach if you don't want to go any further than the grounds.

There are two beaches one of either side of the hotel, easily accessible, clean and beautiful. Quite condusive to surfing.

We would go back!
