The hotel is lovely. Very short walk to the beach. Not a vey long walk along the beach to town, or a short cab ride. Food was very good, especially fresh fish. The staff was wonderful and vey accommodating.

This is such a great place. Samara is one of our favourite places in Costa Rica, and the Hideway Hotel is a great place to escape the busier central Samara. The hotel is located at a perfect distance of both Samara and the wonderful Carrillo,...More

We spent six nights, staff was great, rooms excellent, breakfast and dinner top quality. Beach will always be empty compared to nearby Carrillo, which can be walked to in 110 minutes. Sunset in pix is pretty much what you get every evening.

Beaches are nice, depending on what you are used to. Pacific side is not as nice compared to the Atlantic side. That being said, Carillo is really close to hotel.
