We stayed at the Hidden Paradise resort in January 2013 for 2 weeks, room 105. The room was clean and comfortable, basic but with a faded charm which we loved. Lovely spacious colonial style terrace bordered by flowering shrubs which were visited by humming birds. There is a fridge provided and a safe for which there is only a charge if you lose the key....50 dollars.
The pool is small but clean, it is elevated with lovely views, could do with a few more sunbeds though!
Breakfast is okay but the service is rather slow. You get a small plate of fruit followed by a choice of omelette, pancakes or saltfish dishes, which are delicious. This is followed by toast and jam, with fruit juice. There is tea and coffee provided but the milk is powdered, if you like tea, buy some milk at the small supermarket just beyond the gate and keep it in your fridge to take with you to breakfast.
If you want to explore and don't want to go with a tour company Christopher will take you where ever you want to go. We went with him on several excursions and haggled a good price. He is an excellent driver and will look after you well, you also get to see more of the real Jamaica with him than with an organised tour and you can tailor it to see what you want rather than what a group of people want. Just ask for him at the reception.
I would recommend this hotel as long a you have realistic expectations. It is basic but clean and comfortable, with very friendly and helpful staff. It maybe a little dated and tired, but it has real charm and for the price paid we were very satisfied.
