Hidden Beach Trip Reports and Reviews from our Clients

March 2020 JL + GL Couple

My wife and I had a great time at Hidden Beach.  We have been to a number of resorts over the years, and the staff at HB is exemplary. As we were waiting for our return ride they ensured we each had a sandwich for the ride home. We went to the main buffet (next door at El Dorado, with our clothes on) the first night and were impressed with the seafood fare. But we decided we were happiest staying at the resort for our meals.  As with other clothing-optional locations, the other guests were friendly, and we enjoyed the discussions and their company.

February 2020 SC Couple

We had a great trip! The Hidden Beach is a great resort, rooms are nice, the food was wonderful. Great staff they would do anything for you. We will be going again.

December 2019 S C Single male

I had been in search of a low-key, non-lifestyle, relaxing nude resort. To me, the peak of relaxation is to strip off my clothes and lay poolside or beachside, reading a book and drinking a mojito, while being waited on by friendly and helpful staff. Even better if at no point am I expected or required to dress throughout my stay. If that sounds like heaven to you, then this (Hidden Beach) is the place for you.

The rooms are clean and nice, with comfy beds and beautiful big windows, although I found myself spending very little time in mine. The resort is small (42 rooms+ 1 Presidential Suite) so there's only one restaurant, although you're welcome to visit the other resort (El Dorado) on the property for more variety (adults only, clothing required). The daily menu changes and the food is quite good, plus I didn't want to have to dress and leave, so I was more than happy to eat 3 delicious meals a day at the Hidden Beach restaurant.

The pool is heated (during certain winter months) with an awesome swim-up bar, and the hot tub is heavenly. If you have the option for a swim-up room, take it! I didn't have one, but they looked great. The beach entrance is a (smooth) rock (in some places) and not really swimmable, but the view is great and there are staff members bringing drinks around. It's very quiet and serene. The rest of the property is beautiful and clean, and every staff member is kind and helpful. I would also recommend a beachside massage.

Overall, HBR is an incredible experience, and exactly what I was looking for. I will absolutely be back. And I would recommend Castaways Travel! The booking was easy and the price was great.

T & S Couple July 2019

Thanks for helping us get to HBR for our first time recently. we usually go to C. Sans Souci each July (estimated 14 times now) with our one couples trip each year. we are lucky to be able to do that at this point in our lives. Thanks to grandma/pa for watching the 10 and 14-year-old!

Just to share some thoughts on what we experienced.....

OVERALL

My wife and I loved the resort and all the amenities available. We like the concept of open access to all restaurants. The resort is cleaner and newer than the Couples Resorts and some Sandals resorts, And the staff at HBR are more personable. We didn't like wasting more of a day than we had to (for the sales pitch), but that has nothing to do with Castaways.

      • Would we go back? Definitely!
      • Would we use Castaways?  Definitely!
      • Would we recommend Castaways? Yes....but only to "certain friends"

We will be ready to book somewhere in February 2020 for travel in late June 2020.

R & J Couple May 2019

Thank you both for hosting a great week.  Even though my wife isn't into birthday suits and has health issues with the sun, we both had a great week, including trying most of the dark side restaurants and of course the evening entertainment.  You are both very kind.  Also, my compliments to Castaways for arranging private and classy transportation to and from the airport.  I wish United Airlines could have been as considerate.  We hope everyone had a safe trip home.

I had a great time last week and I appreciate that you were in the area the whole time.  You made sure everyone had what they needed and having a good time, which is something that was missing on my other 6 or 7 trips.
As I said to Gary--you guys did a great job.

Trip Report for 16th Anniversary of Hidden Beach Resort.

WOW!  What a wonderful week for Castaways Travel for the 16th Anniversary of Hidden Beach Resort.

Arrived in Cancun on Friday (May 3rd, 2019), the flight was on time with no wait on Customs or immigration.  Lomas was right out front and provided direction to our private car and within minutes, we have swept away from the crowds and on our way to HBR.

Upon arrival, we were welcomed with “Welcome Home” and one felt all of the stress being relieved.  As newly arrived early, our room was not ready, so off lunch at the pool.  The staff found us with our keys to the room and as normal, the room was wonderful.

There were a lot of activities during the day and great themes every in the evening.  We certainly enjoyed the spectacular service throughout our stay.  Volleyball continues to be a fantastic activity that a lot of guests partake in, but equally, the chairs were filled with guests reading and relaxing.  The Naay Spa on Sunday evening (when one can be clothes-free) is a fantastic way to start the week.

Every day at 4:30, the hot tub got crowed as Happy Hour had arrived with most day appetizers available for guests at the tub.

Regarding the Theme Nights: Leather and Lace we a huge fun party, Mexican Night (Cinco de Mayo was fun, but the Lady in Red and Toga were awesome.  Glow night had a different painter, which was not as creative as our past experience.  But every night the Moonlight Pavilion was full of guests having a great time.

The final night, Friday, was the Gala Night celebrating the 16th anniversary of HBR being Au Natural. A great night outside by the pool with first-class food and service; which featured The Jersey Boys for entertainment.

Regarding the restaurants; we ate at a number of them (HBR, Culinarium, Gourmet Pub, Klay Talay (Asian)) and without hesitation, we will say the food and service were at the top.  One evening we ventured to the Guacamaias Bar (Swinging Bar) at El Dorado that was exceptional, great entertainment, and relaxed atmosphere, but no one talked to each other like at HBR.

As everyone who has been to HBR knows, this is a great resort to be experienced.

Hidden Beach Review

J&L Couple, May 2018

Everything was so smoothly run. We landed and were immediately taken care of with kid gloves (by Lomas Travel at the Cancun Airport). The transport to the resort was seamless. At the resort reception, we were even greeted with a welcome drink. The room was perfect. It was a swim-up and perfectly located. The rest was heaven.

Meals were delicious and varied, the staff was delightful, (Alejandra, Galdino, Angelica, Norma, Esperanza, Carlos, etc). If we had any requests, they were immediately taken care of. The massages and hydrotherapy experiences were so enjoyable. We will return.

I must confess, I was concerned about all the deaths and bad experiences being reported on Trip Advisor about some all-inclusive resorts on the Mayan Riviera, but my fears were allayed. I felt so protected and safe. This place will continue to be excellent. It has already made outstanding improvements since we visited about eleven years ago, and the attention to detail and work ethic will guarantee even more success.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Well, another year and another week at Hidden Beach. Chris has already posted a big thank you to Gary and Terrie. I think we all feel the same way, Sooooo. Thank You, Terrie and you top Gary. We hope to see you hosting again next year.

It was a great week scheduling gave us all Two Foam Parties and Two Glow nights. That’s scheduling oops that I think we all can live with. The singing outburst was not as much as last year, no improvement in talent either. I think the gang at Tinker’s Cove was looking for Alice and putting it to the song.

I myself developed multiple personalities. I thought I was Superman. Then morphed into Juanita (a HOT???? Latino babe). In my last delusional moment, I may have been a priest. I do believe I had a few minutes of clarity when I met this hottie named Bethany. Hope we invited her back for next year. Bethany Muy Caliente !!!!!!

I don’t want to forget the other activities. Volleyball always fun. Flip flops and Margaritas a new event brought to you by Gary and Terrie. Water balloon battles. Maybe next year we could have lawn tractor races. I know someone who would love that event. (No names). Also, Just a trivia fact. Guests both new and repeat now know the location of Tinker’s Cove. It will be our secret.

Last but not least. The reason HBR has a 5-star rating. A Very Big Thank You to the Staff. I did not get photos of all, and to those, I missed my apologies. I have included their photos so we all and look back and remember them. Carlos and Roberto our Food, Alberto and Esperanza our Drinks, Angel, Gaspar, and Aniceto our breakfast and lunch, Ricardo wait staff. Pedro our late afternoon and evening drinks,
Galdino our evening meals and wonderful service. Last but not least Angelica. She may not have been the one to do your daily Towel sculpture and housekeeping, she was ours and we were very pleased.

Finally, Thanks to Jose Martin Garcia Hernandez “Chef de Village”. You have a great team working for you to take good care of them all. Hope to see you all next year. Guest and staff.

This was our 8th visit to Hidden Beach Resort (HBR) as part of the Castaways groups and as expected, we had a marvelous time and plan on returning.  We have hosted the HBR Anniversary week and for the last 3 years and invite you to join us next year for the 16th anniversary.

Notes

        • A good week for Castaways Guest.
        • A number of guests were at HBR because of the hurricane damage to St. Martin.  All loved it and found it to be great
        • HBR staff excelled at customer service; it’s nice to see the same faces after all these years!  For his first year, Martin (New GM) excelled.
        • HBR made each of our personal lobster dinners special.  Those with swim-up suites had private dinners and those who did not – had dinner on the beach; a little windy.
        • HBR did an excellent job celebrating special occasions:
          • One lady had a 50th Birthday
          • A couple had their 5th  anniversary
        • Everyone became acclimated to the clothing-optional resort very easily.
        • Catamaran trip – Great fun trip with Pepe and the gang.
        • The bars could use some fresh fruit to add to their tropical drinks versus the various fruit liquors.
        • Castaways Gave new bags and goodies and were very much appreciated.

Castaways 15th Annual Resort Anniversary Week

THANKS so much for such a great time during the 15th Anniversary Week. It was my first trip to HBR and my first trip with Castaways Travel. I really liked the personalization that happened throughout the week. Everything was organized and all that I and others had to do was enjoy the activities and each other. As a single participant, I was always included with the group and felt like my involvement was voluntary. Lomas Travel did such a great job of transporting people and helpful at the Cancun airport. Gary & Terrie are professionals at what they do. They also are part of the group and enjoy themselves. I have such great memories and hopefully will add to them in future travel with Castaways. The best of continued success and future adventures.

We’ve have been meaning to share an update since we got back but life has not stopped turning – albeit in a good way!

How was our trip?  When people have been asking me that, I honestly, must stand back for a minute with a delicious smile on my face and try to think of where to begin to describe how fantastic and amazing and wonderful everything was…and it was.

It helps that I am madly in love with my husband and we can have a great time pretty much anywhere; but throw in the glorious and breath-taking resort, the people (staff and guests alike), the first-class accommodations and food and the extra touches like a beachfront personal candlelight dinner ON your 21st wedding anniversary and everything about this trip put us over the moon!

Here is a link to the photos that we were able to put on our Facebook page (wink!)  I think it gives a nice glimpse into the grandness of the week.

Winter may be coming but it will only take a quick remembrance of this journey to make the coldest Pittsburgh Winter day seem silly and take us back to the warm sunny beach of Mexico.

Thank you.  Thank you for making it so easy to book with you and your warm emails that I looked forward to receiving.  We made SO many new friends and had so many wonderful private moments that this will be a trip we will never forget or stop talking about.

We cannot wait to book our next adventure with you.  Take good care of yourself.  You are welcome to share this with anyone.  You are a world-class travel agency and we will certainly be using you again.

Have a wonderful day, our Amigos!

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 guests 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 ensure 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 is a new kid on the block but is very personable and helpful. The second is not staff His name 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!! Vocalists 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 !!!!!

If you have never been to Hidden Beach, it should be a priority for your next au natural vacation.  For those of you who have been to Hidden Beach, come back during next year’s 15th anniversary and party with Castaways.

Castaways Couple – October 2016

This is in part a review of Hidden Beach and partly a trip report. This is our fifth visit and we had already booked the May 2017 Anniversary week. Yes, we do like Hidden Beach. First off I want to direct my comments to Alfonso Lopez General Manager EDSS. Although we have never met I will congratulate you on the Management and staff at Hidden Beach. You have a great team from Management to all the staff. We will mention some in the review but all staff represents the resort in the most professional and friendly manner we have experienced. Thank You for organizing such a great team. They are your greatest asset.

We book our trips using Castaways they have a relationship with the resort and Lomas. Transportation to and from the resort is provided by Castaways using Lomas. That gets you there and back. On average the time to Hidden Beach is about 55 minutes. There was a problem with Lomas on this trip. Castaways books private cars for its customers. We were late arrival by 2 hours and we shared a ride to Hidden beach. Due to lateness, we did not have a problem with that. On the return trip, we were scheduled as shared transportation. This was a medium-size bus with several stops on the way to the airport. The trip took one hour and fifty minutes. Not Happy!!
We have referred the problem to Castaways; waiting for a response. We have tried to remember questions we have when going to a resort for the first time and will use them to describe our stay.

B&L Couple - May 2016

We visited Hidden Beach Resort during the 13th Anniversary Week!!! First-timers ANYWHERE ‘Au Natural’……Our hosts, Gary and Teri, were AMAZING!!!!

Knowing we were nervous for first-timers, they greeted us with open arms, walked us through the property and to our room. We had the best time EVER!!!! (NO tan lines)
The beach was a little disappointing (a little shallow in spots), me being a ‘fish’. But, I knew that ahead of time, satellite imaging and such. However, the activities more than
made up for that……Volleyball every day, THANK YOU ADRIAN, YOU were the best!!!

The body painting was crazy, fun. We slept through the Hawaiian party (too much good food on the first night, LOL)
The catamaran trip was FREAKING AWESOME!!!! Freediving into the cenote. The food was delicious!!! We did manage to venture ‘outside’ the gate: the food on ‘the other side'(at El Dorado)
was delicious as well….however, YOU HAD TO WEAR CLOTHES, couldn’t wait to get back inside!!!!! The PUB on the ‘other’ side had the best wings ever.

All of the guests were very welcoming to us…… I believe we had more eye to eye conversations with REAL people here in 6 days then back in ‘PRUDE-utilization’.
(that’s what we call the working world, now).

Looking forward to our return trip for my 50th (25th) birthday. Loved the swim-up suite!!! Will be staying there again.

Travel to and from the property was good. Can’t say enough good things, you’ll just have to visit for yourself!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you……..Memories will last a lifetime!!!! Sunrise on the beach with my hubby (and coffee) = UNFORGETTABLE. Private surf and turf dinner outside
of our room = DELICIOUS!!!!!!

Never laughed so much as the day of the FOAM PARTY……good times with good people!!!

Next time, however, we would love to meet Jim and Champagne, as well!!!!!! We met a lot of very nice enjoyable couples from all over. Everyone made us feel very comfortable and welcome.

Notes

        • A good week for Castaways Guest. If you hear anything other than this, please inform us.
        • HBR staff excelled at customer service; it’s nice to see the same faces after 13 years!
        • Adrian, the entertainment staff, did an excellent job engaging the staff, particularly with water volleyball, aquafit, and even beach bowling throughout the week.
        • Saturday arrivals: heard nightmare stories at immigration (2 to 2 ½ hours). People backed up the entire corridor, up to the stairs and beyond!!!
        • There were 13th Anniversary signs posted throughout the resort. You might encourage the Castaways logo on them in the future.
        • Castaways beach bags and goodies were a huge success. Several guests used their cozies around the pool and many of the women sported their Castaway sarongs during mealtime.
        • Hot tub jets did not work all week and temperature was very hot a couple of days. Apparently, the jets haven’t worked for a few years!?
        • HBR made each guest personal lobster dinners special. Those with swim-up suites had private dinners and those who did not have dinner on the beach; a little windy.
        • HBR did an excellent job celebrating special occasions: birthdays and anniversaries.
          • Greg Fissel’s birthday
          • Scott and Debra Taylor celebrating the 27th anniversary
          • Chris and Andria Nardella 3rd anniversary
        • All the first timers became acclimated to the clothing-optional resort very easily.
          • Bill and Lisa
          • Josh and Heather
          • Marty and Susan
          • Dave and Rebecca
        • Themes:
          • Glow Party – it was suggested to possibly have the airbrush painter come before dinner to paint the guest so that they could enjoy wearing their “outfits” throughout the entire evening.
          • The retro night was a little confusing for the guest – next year, call it 70’s night.
          • Guest-suggested Cowboy/girl night and Pirate night
        • Several guests mentioned it would have been great to have name necklaces, but we remember the time-intensity and supplies to make these at Hedo!
        • The bars could use some fresh fruit to add to their tropical drinks versus the various fruit liquors.
        • Small “hiccups” for the week:
          • In the first few days, we had one refrigerator and an air conditioning with issues that we reported to maintenance and were both fixed immediately.
          • John & Jackie were disappointed that they did not have a luxury car for their transportation from the airport to the hotel.
          • Albert appeared to be on the prowl the first couple of days of the trip, but settled down and spent a lot of time on the Eldorado side at the swinging bar in the evening.
          • Chris was a very nice gentleman, kept to himself, a lot reading on the beach. Disappointed on the beach regarding the sand and being able to utilize for swimming, snorkeling, etc.
        • Sent personalized thank you notes to departing guests and along with the 2017 HBR contract.
        • Once home again sent personalized thank you notes; individual pictures and reminders of the 2017 contract.
