Our trip to Costa Rica included a three day stay at The Hideaway. To say that it was great would be an understatement. Doug and Rosie make excellent hosts who clearly cared about every aspect of our stay at their hotel and in Samara/Carillo. While not in "downtown" Samara, it is an excellent location, only a few minutes from the great Playa Carillo and a minute from Playa Samara.
The rooms are spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. The premises is immaculately maintained. The food is excellent - the breakfast sustained us for a full day of sightseeing/relaxing. A truly fantastic experience.
