My husband and I stayed at the Hideaway for 3 nights last month. The hotel is beautiful! The rooms are large and very comfortable. All rooms seem to have a large balcony and ours was situated where we could watch (and hear!) the howler monkeys on the mango trees right outside of our room. The pool and outside dining/lounge area was equally as beautiful and yes, you are can see and hear the monkeys from there too.
Breakfast was included. We always choice Gallo Pinto which consists of beans and rice, an egg cooked how you like, fresh delicious fruit, orange juice, and coffee or tea. They also serve lunch, dinner, and snacks and drinks any time you like. The food is very good and there's a nice variety. Note, there are no other restaurants a short walk away.
As the name suggests the Hideaway is tucked away which we thought was perfect. It is surrounded by nature rather than more hotels, bars and restaurants. The sounds we heard were the ocean and the animals living in the trees of the property. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away, the even more beautiful Carrillo beach is a 10 minute drive, and "downtown" Samara with shops, restaurants and bars a 10 minute drive in the other direction.
Doug, the owner, will do his best to ensure each person has an enjoyable stay. He is knowledgeable about the area and will make arrangements for a variety of activities you select. We chose horseback riding and the guide he arranged was excellent! We chose a 2 hour ride through the mountains with views of three coves then down to the beach just before sunset.
The rest of the team is very pleasant and equally concerned with making every guest comfortable. They deliver excellent service.
