    Amazing place, feels like you are in the middle of a jungle, monkeys, iguanas, butterfly’s, birds, and a snake. The breakfast was so delicious and the people there were lovely.

    Excelente lugar!

    Excelente lugar y muy buena atención! comida y el desayuno bastante buenos...incluso pedimos para hacer un late check out y no hubo inconvenientes, incluso no nos cobraron nada. Además tienen un convenio con un restaurante donde te hacen descuento en caso de que quieras comer fuera del hotel.

    I had truly such an amazing stay here. The staff members were all very friendly. Breakfast was included and was delicious everyday (we loved their breakfast burrito!). They made us feel welcome providing beach towels, mats, and sunscreen during our stay to leaving us wine glasses bottle opener outside when they knew we were looking for a bottle opener for our wine. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a fully functional A/C. The location is also great as it is about 5 min away from Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

    Rooms were clean, food was great, location was ideal with it being walking distance to the beach. But what really made the whole experience was Nancy and Maria. They were awesome. Anything we needed they helped out with. Would highly recommend staying here.

    What an excellent visit ! The Hideaway is open in Samara and the staff there are extra special making up for the closed beaches and stores. Virginia, Maria, and Nancy made sure our stay was the best. They would call and see if restaurants in town were open as well as make reservations. With Samara being sort of shut down it was very quiet and peaceful as well as relaxing. We loved our visit and will return again soon. Give them a try !

    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.

    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!
