Highly. highly recommend!! The STAFF is really what makes this place so excellent!! Yes it was clean, had cold A/C, pool, friendly little reptiles and crustaceans everywhere with some great food and drink options; it still was the staff that made my vacation. When I walked through the front door I was greeted with a warm welcome from Bianca and Maria; then an excellent breakfast with Stefano and Nancie! Finally, for dinner and drinks I had the please of meeting Max! While everyone was very helpful, friendly and most importantly, knowledgeable of the area, Max really went above and beyond to make sure I could enjoy my time to the fullest while I was there. Thanks a bunch and until next time my friends!

First of all, this hotel probably has the most sweet and helpful staff we've had in our entire stay in Costa Rica. Plus, the food is AMAZING and truly delicious. On of it's best thing is also the proximity to the beach (3 mins walking). The place is clean and the owner really takes care of the whole place. Also the tree surrounding the hotel is full of monkeys! Overall, we can't find anything we didn't like about this place, would recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect hideaway at playa Sámara!
Please say hello to Doug if you go!!

Room Tip: room with balcony on the pool was perfect

The Hideaway was great. The rooms and dining/pool area pleasant. We saw iguanas on the property, and a group of howler monkeys passed by through the trees near the pool several different days. It was a short walk to the beach. Also a good central location to access the different attractions in the area. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable of things to do and places to go.

The Hideaway Hotel is a lovely, well maintained boutique hotel. We were enchanted immediately! The staff are fantastic. The setting is lovely. The rooms are clean and spacious. And the food.....WOW! Nancy and Bianca did a remarkable job of making us feel welcome and special. The internet speed was quite good. The howler monkeys visited every day while we were staying. They would come and hang out in the trees right by the pool.
