The Hideaway Hotel
What a gorgeous place to stay...just steps from the beach. The food was delicious and reasonable compared to restaurants in town. The service was amazing. They let us borrow towels before our check in so we could hang out the beach and keep our luggage in a side office. They let us do the same thing when we checked out earlier too! I would go back in an instant!!!’

Very Good8.0
Nice hideaway
The hotel is a bit off from Samara, so if you don't have a car, it can be a bit less convenient (the local taxi service is not always very reliable). A good mix of local and American amenities, with nice grounds (iguanas!) and plenty of wildlife around. The best feature is Carillo Beach, a 10 minute walk from the hotel. There are no services, but this is one of the best beaches in CR. The hotel has another nearby beach, which is the southern tip of the Samara beach. This is less good for swimming, but great for finding shells. During low tide, you can walk to Samara on the beach (35-40 minutes, great walk), or bike there. The hotel has all the tide information, so that is very convenient. The owners are nice people, and the staff is great.

The place to be
We had a great time. The staff is awesome. The breakfast burritos are delicious. We had a banana split brownie extravaganza each day. The location is ideal between two beaches we walked to. We ate on Samara beach twice and walked around the shops. The locals are very friendly. The hotel has monkeys that frequent the mango tree. We took some great photos. We met some nice guests and my husband didn't want to leave. We would definitely comeback.

Great hotel
We loved our stay at the hideaway! The hotel was clean and beautifully maintained. You could walk to the beach or take a quick drive into samara or playa carillo. The employees and owners were so kind, warm, and welcoming. The food was great and there was lovely wildlife to see all around the hotel—monkeys, birds and iguanas. We would definitely stay here again:). Thank you, hideaway!
