Big, nice clean room, quiet in the evening and at night, really close to the beach where you can see the sun set, good food at the hotel but pretty expensive.good breakfast, and a plus that you can borrow a towel for the beach.

This is a well-run bed and breakfast. Beautiful grounds, quiet yet close to local restaurants. The closest beach is less than a 10-minute walk; Playa Carrillo has cute little red crabs! But don't worry about stepping on one, they hide underground as soon as you get close. Breakfast had a little more than the typical offerings I had at different...

Hideaway is a really nice little property. There aren't a lot of rooms, so it's never crowded. It's just a short walk to the beach and is basically in the jungle. Every night, howler monkeys show up in the trees next to the pool, along with many birds and lizards. The food is quite good and the service is prompt...

We stayed here for a week, great place, private and quiet location. Pool was very relaxing, and meals were excellent. The room was well laid out and the air-conditioning was very effective. In room wifi worked very well. Monkeys and iguanas were a plus. It is very close to Playa Samara, but we preferred taking the very short drive to...

Beautiful location, fantastic and friendly people, plus the beauty of monkeys and iguanas to be heard and found within yards from our apartment were a dream come true. Staff was always amazing and attentive, the grounds were well cared for and majestic - I can't say enough good things about this place. 30 minute walk from downtown Samara on the...

This place was great, from large and clean rooms to the wonderful staff. Our only regret during our vacation is not staying here a bit longer. It's right on a beautiful beach that is uncrowned and a short walk to a larger, very beautiful, carillo beach. Highly recommended.

Our itinerary had to change abruptly and so we had to check into Hideaway Hotel one night earlier... No problem, they said. By the time we drove it down to Samara and find Hideaway Hotel (which was in the middle of the night), both my wife and I were exhausted. Loida was at the counter that night; she ensured that...

We loved our stay at the Hideaway! Martina, David, Maria, and the rest of the staff were absolutely lovely! Wild horses on the beach, beautiful sunsets, and wonderful weather will have us coming back for more!

The rooms are generously laid out and there are little paths leading to them giving a good sense of privacy. There were howler monkeys in the trees which we enjoyed watching while sipping cocktails at the pool side. it is only a few minutes' walk to the beach each night to see the beautiful sunset. I must also mention the...
