Great rooms, great food and close to the beach! I recently brought my group of students to Samara and the location at Hideaway was perfect. The staff and management made the trip run so smoothly; I look forward to returning in the future!

Wonderful staff, large clean rooms, great surroundings and excellent food. All five minutes from the beach with beautiful wildlife all around. Doug and Rosie were superb hosts and we would love to come back again. Highly recommended.

Excellent food, great/helpful owners and staff, very nice large clean rooms, well manicured grounds with nice pool - bonus of daily visits from monkeys into the mango tree beside our patio. Easy walk to local beaches (1min to Samara beach, 5 min to Carillo beach)

We enjoyed three nights at the Hideaway Hotel in early April. Rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. Staff are all friendly and helped us navigate Playa Samara. We would stay again if ever back.
