Hidden Eden was a blessing for my husband and I. We were only in Aruba three nights before heading to Venezuela and we were looking for an safe, clean and economic place to stay during the 2012 Christmas season. We were looking for beaches and activities, not for casinos and shopping. Hidden Eden was perfect; the room we stayed in was comfortable, there was lots of space for luggage and the air conditioning worked fine. Beach towels were provided which made packing a lot easier.
The common area is a huge, beautiful garden where you can read and have breakfast with other guests in the morning. Breakfast was always different and very good. The other guests were always very open and sharing about what they recommended on the island and where to go. Roy, the host/cook, is very helpful and will even bring you to your beach of choice in the morning if he is available. Because of the location I would advise renting a car so that you can go to and from Hidden Eden as you want; while taxis are available, some days we paid as much in taxi fees as we would have renting a car (taxi's are well regulated on the island so prices are always fair). Regardless, renting a car would have made exploring the island a little easier and it appears that there is adequate parking in most areas and at many of the beaches.
We will definitely plan on staying at Hidden Eden on our next trip to Aruba!
