We had a great stay here right at the start of the rainy season. Very spacious and updated rooms, food was pretty good, if a bit pricey. The staff was very very friendly and helpful, and the owners who happened to be staying while we were there, were great and made sure we had everything we needed. Be warned its... More

The guacamole is the best that we have ever had. Not to mention that both their mango margarita and brownie dessert are superb. The best part of this stay was the... More

The Hideaway was a wonderful hotel stay for us. We had just bounced our way down from Monteverde, and were looking for some beachside chilling. From the moment we walked in, the true value of the hotel - its staff - was on full display. We were greeted warmly and cheerfully, given a very nice room, as well as useful... More

There really is no words to describe our stay here at the hotel. We had 5 wonderful nights there. We had reserved a house with VRBO and when we ran into difficulties we decided not to rent the house. So I went to my tripadvsior app and bingo there was The Hideaway Hotel. We walk in and were greeted by... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and has a great time. The staff and owner are really helpful and do everything they can to ensure your stay is as good as possible (they were super helpful about our transfers there from Nicaragua and onward to Monteverde). The hotel and rooms are well equipped and the pool is great - perfect... More

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) just stayed at Hideaway for four nights. What a special place! This hotel has all the comforts of a big hotel, however, you have the feeling that you are the only one there with a staff to help you with all your needs. The rooms are very big and clean. The...

Great stay at The Hideaway Hotel. The staff and service was outstanding. Perfect and private location, made for a wonderful trip to Samara. The beach was just steps away, what a great stop on our trip to costa rica.
