May 2010 – G & F
Hidden Beach was absolutely fantastic! The STAFF could not have been more attentive and caring. This included the Front Desk, the wait and bar staff, the Housekeeping and Laundry Staff, and the Maintenance and Grounds Staff. The Entertainment Staff (especially Omar and Alex) keep the guests ‘active’ and the night life is great despite the small number of guests. The property is beautiful, and having the use of the El Dorado Seaside Suites facilities and restaurants is a great asset. The rooms are comfortable, but, get a swim-up suite (it is well worth it!). The food was superb, and surprisingly you had a good choice for a small resort (with the 5+ restaurants at El Dorado it gave you even a wider choice of cuisines, and the food and service there was also very good). The only negatives are: a) the lack of beach swimming – the beach itself is beautiful, but the reef prevents you from taking a ‘dip’; and, b) the tennis court – if you are a player, forget this, you can get hurt – it needs a complete re-surface and facelift.
Other than these, Hidden Beach is a hidden treasure!
