Great spot if you want to be near the sea turtles. My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The food is fresh... The guacamole is the best that we have ever had. Not to mention that both their mango margarita and brownie dessert are superb. The best part of this stay was the...

The Hideaway was a wonderful hotel stay for us. We had just bounced our way down from Monteverde, and were looking for some beachside chilling. From the moment we walked in, the true value of the hotel - its staff - was on full display. We were greeted warmly and cheerfully, given a very nice room, as well as useful...

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) just stayed at Hideaway for four nights. What a special place!
