This was our 4th trip to Hidden Beach in the last 3 years and it was our best visit. The improvements made and being made there are fantastic.

We were told about the improvement plans when we joined Exotic in late 2008, but then nothing happened. We were starting to worry that the planned improvements were not going to happen. Now they have!! Rooms, pool deck, lighting, chairs, palapalas, landscaping etc etc are all so nice. The cleanliness of the resort is outstanding. Holding the evening shows on that edge of the canal near the dining area is a fantastic idea…it makes dinner even nicer.

The service people who take care of us are as great as always. They really are very impressive!! No other place we have been to even comes close. It was really good to see so many of them back at Hidden Beach after the remodel.

The only area that needs improving is the nightlife and the management briefed us on several ideas that they will be pursuing to make the music and dancing better. The entertainment is already pretty good.

Just a wonderful wonderful place!!!

From the moment we entered through the arched wooden doors of Hidden Beach Resort we knew that it was a special place. We can’t begin to describe how perfectly comfortable we felt here. Omar greeted us , showed us around and to our room. The panoramic 3rd floor ocean view was breathtaking. FYI if you require a balcony the swim up rooms have a very spacious patio much more suitable for lounging outside on your deck. Everything at this resort is relaxing and casual .Feel free to mingle or not ,dress fun for theme nights & dance in the disco if you wish, lay on a beach bed under the stars, take part in volleyball & games or simply relax on the beach .One things for sure you will not find judgment at this resort. There was soo much R&R for us it felt like double the stay. The service & food were fantastic. We have been fortunate enough to stay at many other Caribbean Resorts and for the first time the staff made such an impression that their names and faces are still very much present with us, they made us feel special and welcome. Smiles were everywhere you turned . So hats off to Omar, David, Carlos, Esparanza ( Barbie we enjoyed the water aerobics & bingo , so much fun!) Michel the entertainment director for the franchise was present often and payed special attention to making sure guests were happy and comfortable, he made us feel that our opinions really mattered. We are beach people and enjoyed the different scenery here, the waves crashing over the bags was a nice change and enjoyably soothing to watch. Note! Pack some water shoes as wading in the warm ocean water to feed the fish was unforgettable but can be a little hard on the feet. The guests were mixed in ages but all were refreshingly (honestly) friendly & fun. We were able to make some wonderful new friends and hope to encounter them upon a future visit . This resort it is truly a hidden gem. So cheers to soo many memories, such a delightful, uninhibited holiday.. You truly have to experience it to believe it .. What else can we say but we will return !!

First time at an au natural resort, had a fantastic week, we too are spoiled!

Excellent service, room, food, beverages, staff... hard to complain, the only recommendation I have is to work on the shower water temp--fluctuates often.

Small resort--42 rooms, but you can put on clothes and go next door to Seaside and enjoy snorkeling off the beach, and 5 great restaurants. We ate most of our meals at the HBR restaurant or the beach BBQ--excellent variety and quality!

Decent nightlife for a small resort--rock bands, DJ, karaoke, local dance shows, acrobats, magician, fire dancers, even a mechanical bull!

We made many friends--everyone was great! This is NOT Hedo or Desire, so if that's what you like, go there!

Never had a problem finding beach chairs or a day bed, unlike many other resorts we've been to... we don't get up early, so this was a big plus!

Don't miss the au natural cruise--the perfect day! Can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: Get a swim up room away from the nightclub!

What can I say??? The resort is beyond anything you can imagine. The service and the food was outstanding. Thank you Esperanza, Aniceto, Alex and so many others. We never walked past one person that didn't greet us cheerfully. Also, huge thanks for setting up our last night romantic dinner, and putting candles in the room and filling up the tub with bubbles. My wife just cried when we had to leave. We are ruined forever. There is no resort that will every compare to how great the service was and how they made our honeymoon something we will cherish forever...Hope to see you in May 2012..

P.S. We are trying to find the same mattress that was in our room to buy in the states, absolutely the best nights of sleep we have ever had!!

We added 3 days at HBR to our week long stay at another nearby resort so we could check it out. From the moment we arrived it was perfect. I'll spare you repeating all the detail of other reviews. We did the nude cruise, A+. Staff, food, room, drinks, company, A+
The gist: While sitting in the chairs in front of our swim-up suite I told my wife " Even if I had to wear clothes this is still my favorite resort, ever".
We are late 50's and very well traveled. We are bringing our friends next May. We may bring some of the fancy sexy nude resort wear that most of the gals wore to dinner & dancing. Most likely, though, we'll just be naked!

The early morning dawned in May as we headed for our 11th time to Hidden Beach, south of Cancun.
For those unfamiliar with this resort, this is a 42 suite resort tolding a maximum guest capacity of 84, no one under 21 years old.
We had not been there for two years and were pleased with the complete renovation of Hidden Beach. The rooms are up to date in every respect but still retain that complimentary bottle of champagne you find when you first arrive in your room as well as the beautiful towel art on your bed each afternoon.
It was eight days of complete relaxation and away from the stress of the real world as you enjoyed Esparanzas, Champagne and various other adult beverage creations by a remarkable bar staff.
The food is wonderful from the menu, buffet or outdoor grill.
The sun was hot, the winds blew onto the shore most of the time, giving you some respite from the heat if you were not already in the cool swimming pool with the swim up bar. Needless to say, there are many water activites to enjoy.
Several noticable changes included a great improvement in the evening shows. Not only where there shows stafed around the pool but also inthe large entertainment palapa.
The staff acted more excited and exciting then in past years always saying "Hola" every time they daw you, laughed with you during tequila volleyball and acted on your every request throughout the day.
I (Jim) was fortunate to celebrate my birthday there and needless to say, it was a memorable occasion.
This is a beautiful resort and we encourage everyone to visit in the future. We will do the same again next May.
Truly, you will not forget the experience.
Jim and Charles

This will be long, but I really need to let everyone know what to expect. This trip was on my husband's "bucket list" and I was apprehensive to say the least. After reading other reviews over and over, and looking at the photos on the Hidden Beach website, I finally convinced myself I could stand it for a week.

Wow! What an utterly amazing time we had! The place is absolutely gorgeous--truly a paradise. We had a swim-up jacuzzi suite very near the pool. We checked in around 4:00 pm, went to our room, and my husband was ready to go. I was just hoping to make it to the hot tub without anyone seeing me. Once we got into the hot tub, we immediately felt comfortable. There were about 6 other people in there, and they welcomed us and made us feel at ease. There are, as you would imagine, all different body types. Some better, some worse than ours. It was never an issue. After those first few minutes out of our room, it was alarming how quickly you adapt to being naked 24/7.

This was by far the most relaxing and unstressful week we've ever spent anywhere. The beach palapas are wonderful. The warm sun and ocean breezes never stop, and you can move from a cool shaded palapa to chairs in the sand & sun for tanning. Esperanza kept the drinks coming. Now I'm not sure how I can start my day without my 10:00 am pina colada...

We never had to wait for a beach towel either. We went early to "claim" chairs by the pool, but it got to be silly at one point. Some people were so distressed if they didn't get a bank of chairs for all their friends it would ruin their day. We watched as one guy would get up at 5:00 am and put towels on extra chairs, and then sit and guard them until his lazy friends would get out of bed to claim their spots. Some of them didn't show up until after lunch.

The wait staff anticipated everything, and they were so warm and friendly. We had the impression that they all really like working there. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choices on the buffet. Lunch was either ala carte from the menu at the restaurant or grilled food at the pool. I preferred the lunch from the restaurant. Dinner was always very nice--4 courses ala carte at the restaurant. Other guests who've been coming for 5+ years told us the same people are still working there. That says a lot.

We never made it to the disco. We preferred to be in the hot tub by ourselves or lounging somewhere. There are theme nights, and lots of other guests really got into that. We didn't bring costumes but I saw lots of fishnet, sexy underwear, Mardi Gras beads, etc. We only heard the music from the disco on our last night, when they had a live band playing. I think it ended around 10:00 pm.

We had planned to go to Tulum and Playa during our week, but we were so relaxed, we never left the property. I finally had to go next door to El Dorado to purchase souvinirs for our kids and it was so stressful to have to get dressed and walk out the gate.

We met some really fun people--and had a blast. We went to a presentation by Exotic Travel and since we knew for sure we'd be back, we joined as members. We are already planning our next trip for September or October and hoping like crazy we avoid a hurricane.

My husband and I have been married over 21 years, and we are in our 50s, but we felt like newlyweds again. If you have any doubts whatsoever about Hidden Beach, just go for it!
