To start, we had a car, so this helped in getting around. That said, this was an excellent hotel with a friendly and helpful team, and the best restaurant in Samara. The fish was great, and the mango salsa and pineapple salsa are the taste of the tropics.

The staff get 5+ stars. The property is nice but not a 4 or 5 star hotel (at least by my standards), but a solid 3+ stars. It might have a fitness center, business center, hot tub, sauna, etc., but I didn't see it. Then again, we were out doing activities everyday almost all a

How is the beach. We have two toddlers and they love to play in sand and beach. Does the beach have soft sand and suitable for kids? Thank you
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.

Hello, how is your internet connection and how often does it crash?
We had an end room so had a weak connection. Probably ok in the other rooms!

How far away is the airport in Liberia?
It is about 1.5-2 hours depending on traffic. We had a rental car for our 2 week stay so we drove to the hotel. We went a little slower then the locals being in the country for the first time and becoming familiar with road signs etc. Took us about 2 hours.

Hello how long of a drive from Liberia Airport? Thank you Alissa
Its about 2 hours from Liberia to the Hideaway. Just FYI: We decided not to rent a car and the hotel arranged a driver from a tour firm. For our family of 5 it was about $150. It was nice to have an air-conditioned van waiting for us at the airport. The knowledgeable driver (also a tour guide) stopped to show us a howler monkey in a tree on the way. Just an idea. We took cabs around town in Samara and the tour companies send a vehicle when you book a tour. But, it's also nice to have a car. Have a blast!

Do you offer extra roll away bed. We are a family of two adults and two teenagers. Thank you
We can't say for sure but while we were there we met a number of families with older children, both male and female. Not sure what the sleeping arrangements were however. Try emailing the hotel directly. I think you will find them quick to answer your query.

"The views are non-existent (hence the name "hideaway hotel'), so it doesn't matter which room you book."
"room with balcony on the pool was perfect"
"We stayed in several rooms over the years, it seems they are all nice."
"We were in room 12 which is the most requested unit. The location was perfect for privacy as well as for viewing the howler monkeys."
"Ask for Upper rooms for quiet relaxation."
