The name say it all, this is a beautiful, quaint hotel/resort away from the noise of the town but still walking distance to everything. The property and rooms are in pristine condition and the staff are all a 10/10. Staying there was a highlight of our trip.

Top notch friendly people!
I would give our stay at the Hideaway an 11 out of 10 if I could. The people are amazing. Everyone is super friendly and down to earth. Nelson, Maria, Johnny, were very kind to our 15 year old son and eager to help him with his Spanish. The hotel is just the right size. Pool is refreshing with a nice little waterfall. Food is very good and they offer a wide variety to suit all tastes. Location is excellent, just a short walk to the south end of Samara beach. It is Within walking distance to beautiful Carrillo beach and a short 5 minute drive to downtown Samara. The farmers market on Saturday is worth checking out. Lots of great restaurants in the area. Beach volleyball in front of Olas beachfront restaurant is fun for all, the sushi is very good too. Can’t wait to go back and visit our friends at the Hideaway.
