After 7 days of travel through CR we had booked the last 4 days at the beach to relax. Our initially booked hotel turned out to be horrible, a steep hill to the beach, dirty rooms, torn furniture, it rained through the roof, we were so disappointed. The local Treehouse Inn which looked cool to the kids was booked and above our budget. At the recommendation of the Treehouse Innkeepers we called the Hideaway Hotel and booked the first night unseen.....and considered ourselves very lucky....what a gem, we didnt want to leave anymore (in fact I wish I was there now)
What can I say...beautifully designed and landscaped, spacious rooms with the most comfy beds and hangout chairs (the room was great for us 4, kids 11 and 13). Nice pool and lounge area, nice sitting area for breakfast, lunches, if you want dinners...in fact the food was so delicious we had lunch there every single day. Walk to the beach 2 minutes, the empty cleaner side of Playa Samara. We had rented a car, so the 5 minutes drive to Samara for surf lessons or nightly dinners was no big deal.
I assume without car I would have walked to town (Samara) along the beach and taken a taxi back. The hotel is run by an American couple who is making everyone feel at home, the mood is very relaxed and friendly, you can chat with owners and fellow guests by the poolside at night, but you can also have your space. We hope we will be back. Thank You Rosi and Doug and your wonderful staff!
