Thank you so much for your kind review!
Come back soon to see us!
We loved our 4 night stay at the Hideaway. The owner and staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. They booked several excursions for us and made great recommendations. The location is lovely...although not on the beach, it's a 2 minute walk to Playa Samara...More

First of all, this hotel probably has the most sweet and helpful staff we've had in our entire stay in Costa Rica. Plus, the food is AMAZING and truly delicious. On of it's best thing is also the proximity to the beach (3 mins walking)....More
The Hideaway was great. The rooms and dining/pool area pleasant. We saw iguanas on the property, and a group of howler monkeys passed by through the trees near the pool several different days. It was a short walk to the beach. Also a good central...More

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.
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... More
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!
