Recent guest comment: "We chose this location as it was close to the sportfishing charter that my husband wanted to go on out of Carrillo. We returned from our day of fishing with mahi mahi steaks which the staff at the Hideaway cooked for us to perfection. What a wonderful treat that was as we dined outdoors by the pool."
