Great food in a really nice, well kept hotel. We had a delicous locally caught fresh fish served with a guacamole sauce that was perfect. We had a house up the road but we wouldn't hesitate to stay here. One of the few places we found plush green plants in the last few weeks of dry season. Great staff and... More

I have already reviewed the Hideaway in Samara as my favorite place to stay for my twice yearly trip to Samara (we own a home north of San Jose). Just want to recommend it as a great place to dine. It's a cool boutique hotel with 12 rooms. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is a pleasant respite from... More

This hotel is very close to the beaches, you can walk there. It also has a nice pool area. Rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and big bathrooms. Breakfast, sitting overlooking the pool, was wonderful, actually one of the best we had in Costa Rica, with several hot selections made ready to order, as well as fresh fruit. Still, more... More

We dined here several times over our trip (we were staying across the street). Once we arrived in the afternoon for one of their brownie sundaes (really really good- the brownie is perfectly chewy and the homemade ice cream is sinful) and a beer (although I hope their craft beer distributor gets back on track- I would have loved to...

The Hideaway looked beautiful, clean, and had eye candy appeal. It had an elegant exterior. I decided to eat dinner there with my husband. The wait staff was friendly and helpful in dining suggestions. I liked the mahi mahi in a creamy avocado sauce. This restaurant was pleasant and away from the commercial strip of Samara.

My husband and I stayed at the home next to the Hideaway Hotel and we stopped there for lunch one day. While the food was good (as were the Mango Margaritas), what made us go back was the service. The server was so friendly and made conversation with us; not just worried about taking our order. The food was prompt.... More

I had the pleasure of eating at the Hideaway Hotel twice during a recent stay. The food is outstanding. The fish is jumping out of the boat fresh, accompanied with excellent coconut and avocado based sauces. But the real star of the show is the cheeseburger. It's quite possibly the best burger I've ever had in my entire life. Seriously...I... More

We reviewed the hotel but if you just decide to eat here the food was very good. The fish in the coconut sauce was awesome.

Amazing service and exceptional food. Doug knows exactly what he is doing and how to run an ice cream machine. We enjoyed the mint chocolate which really put a highlight on a sultry day my favorite however was the filet mignon with Gorgonzola mouthwateringly delicious if we ever go back to Play Samara I am staying at the Hideaway.
