It’s the staff!
Just back from Hidden Beach Resort. This was our 6th visit and a Castaways 14th Anniversary Week Hosted trip by Gary & Terrie. Many of the guest attended last year’s Anniversary so it was great to see so many old and young friends. So about Hidden Beach. Why do we return? It’s the staff!! The staff is the best that I have ever encountered. They go above and beyond to insure you are enjoying yourselves. I have written prior trip reports on Hidden Beach; In those I have praised the Staff and Management. I have come to realize without the staff that works at Hidden Beach I would rate the resort 4 Stars. We feel like family when we are at Hidden Beach. In truth, we first felt like family on our first trip. Thank You to all the Staff at Hidden Beach for all your efforts and friendship. IT’S THE STAFF!!!!!! To Management, the staff is your most important asset.
The resort grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Rooms are cleaned daily, food is great. There is a mini fridge stocked with beer, soda and snacks. This is just below the cabinet shelf stocked with vodka. scotch and other spirits. There are many places to relax around the pool or on the beach. Very small beach. Premium drinks at the bars, Many creative drinks as well. All meals can be taken at the resort or If you have the energy to dress you can venture to the two resorts on either side of Hidden beach, all owned and operated by the same company, Karisma. As a guest at Hidden Beach, there is No Charge for dining next door at 10 more restaurants. Room service is available. We have never ordered room service. We do venture off property to have dinner at the Italian and Mexican restaurants. I use the gym daily, there is a small fridge with stocked cold bottled water and a plate with fresh fruit available. Free weights 3 bikes, 2 treadmills are available.
We would like to mention two individuals from this trip. First: Roberto, He is a Chef and does the cooking demonstrations. Roberto in a new kid on the block but is very personable and helpful. The second is not staff His nane is Alberto. We were fortunate the catch most of his act returning from dinner. He is a tenor singer. He performed several songs, then he did a few Italian Opera pieces. WOW!! Vocalist are not my first choice but this man was amazing.
The last item to cover is the guests. We have returned with prior friends this occasion, but on several prior visits, we just met people. The best description I can offer is that you can be as sociable as you want or just relax with your book or Kindle. Prior reports cover other activities and suggestions. I am feeling a bit long winded right now. So this is the end. Enjoy !!!!!
