I was the first person allowed after the COVID closure, great hospitality, they made sure everything was disinfected. Since I was the only guest in the hotel they made sure I was confortable, they even brought my breakfast to the room. Great service, lovely space, very good in cleanliness as well.

Location is close to beach and only walkable to town at low tide. Walk to beach, short drive to Carrillo beach which is very nice Nice folks running the place, helpful staff

Virginia and her staff run a beautiful hotel. The room was spacious and clean. We had three choices for a freshly prepared breakfast with outstanding fruit plates. The pool is relaxing and the resident iguanas are fun to watch. The beach is only a short walk away and each time we saw howler monkey families in the trees. When we left our passports in the room safe and moved on to our next destination, the staff was contacted and secured our documents until we could drive back the next day. Try the lunch and dinner options too, everything was delicious. Thank you and we hope to visit again one day!

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The layout of the buildings is such that every room was very private. The hotel is a few minutes outside of Samara, so nice and quite. It is only a two minute walk to a beautiful beach with great swimming and stunning sunsets.

The Hideaway is a lovely hotel that is set apart from the main town of Samara. The grounds are lush. The room was comfortable but had a persistent musty smell that never left. Somthing like wet towels on the furniture from previous guests could have caused that.

Perfect place to end a hectic trip
The reviews were right. What a great place to stay. Each day starting with great breakfast choices and some days accompanied by the local Howler monkeys in the nearby trees. Rooms are clean, comfortable and huge (especially the bathroom). Iguanas on the property keep the mozzies away for the most part. Good options if you decide to stick around for dinner and the brownies are a must at some point in your stay. The mango margarita is dangerously delicious! The staff including Nancy, Maria and Javier, were all brilliant and eager to help when needed though not intrusive. Only down side was lack of tea in the room though that's easily fixed. If you go to Samara in tthe evening and aren't driving, make sure you have a driver's number so you can get back. The taxi ranks are not dependable and taxi offices don't always answer. Thanks to the biker who took both myself and my wife back and saved us a 4k walk. Never got a chance to say thanks before he sped off.

The Hideaway was a wonderful place to stay! The rooms are big, clean and nicely furnished, the bed was really comfortable and the staff were wonderful, welcoming and really helpful. The breakfast in the morning was amazing too! We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it!
