“Hidden Beach is a winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

My wife and I made our second trip to the adults only Luxurious Hidden Beach Au Natural Resort in early July. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to return in mid August. That was a special week as the first international Nude Painting Party was being held there.


After a few trips my spouse and I really feel this place is special. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. Some have been at the resort since it opened 11 years ago. Staff members take the time to learn your name and and what your drink or food preferences might be.

I believe that the boutique size of the resort - 42 rooms - contributes to the friendly small town feeling where you get to know both the staff and the other people staying there. Guests were continually introducing themselves and made every effort to be inclusive. We have been to other clothing optional resorts so were accustomed to being in a nude environment. Hidden Beach does not have the sexual tension that is often felt in Life Style friendly resorts.


Dinners are high quality and always include beef, chicken, and fish selections. In addition to eating at Hidden Beach, guests may elect to go next door to El Dorado Seaside (just have to wear clothes there) and visit some of their eateries. We tried the Mexican, International and Asian restaurants and they were all good. Especially enjoyed the Mexican. But, during our second trip we elected to have our dinners at HBR. We were not disappointed. The menu has great variety---I enjoyed the fresh tuna steak-rare and the service was always excellent. One night featured Italian food while another night evening featured Asian dishes.


Dining is available inside the dining room or on the pool side patio.

The naked painting party was a hoot. A tarpaulin was placed on the floor of the disco and guests were given paints and paint brushes. They could all let their imaginations run amok as they painted willing friends and partners. A professional body painter was present to help with the creative artistry.


Our room was a swim up. Fabulous. Open your sliding door and you can go down the step into the waterway that leads to the dining area, the pool, and the swim up bar. In addition to the shower, there is a hot tub in the room which fits two.

It is my understanding that HBR will be staging more naked painting parties next year and we hope to be there to join in the fun again with this unique activity. But we certainly plan to return to Hidden Beach and enjoy the luxury, service, dining, and ambiance. We recommend it for all adult ages.

Room Tip: The swim up rooms are convenient, but the 2 and 3rd floor rooms offer more privacy and a better view

Social Exposure had the pleasure of producing the first-ever international Naked Painting Party at HIdden Beach for their exclusive guests and it was a smash hit. Guests were beaming with surprise when they were instructed to paint each other under the beach side palapa. Hidden Beach is world class au natural club that attracts a very international mix of guests. They aim to make people super comfortable and they succeed at it tenfold. The Naked Painting Party will return in 2014!

From Miguel's welcoming us home on our arrival, to America (her real name) to Dr. Carlos the best bartender around, everyone working here was excellente. Ruben and Ingrid were excellente as far as entertainment with everyone especially loving Ingrid, who was quite professional and funny. Angel, Jesus, Anicete and Esperanza were terrific.

My wife had a medical issue during our stay and they had an English speaking doctor in our room within 15 minutes, just amazing, and the problem was solved.

Food was terrific and we occasionally eat next door, but make sure that you get a reservation since waits as long as an hour and a half were quoted for those without reservations.

We intend to return next August.

Room Tip: We had a suite on the second floor, which wasn't quite as convenient as the main level, but more...

Most relaxed and fun place to be. Great staff and excellent service.
You will love it!
It is pricey but you will think its well worth it. Keep in mind you have acess to Eldorado Seaside but you do have to wear clothes

Room Tip: There are all wonderful rooms, you can't get a bad room , they are all beautiful

The great differentiator is the outstanding service provided by the hole staff. Some people may
say it is expensive but it's difficult to put a price to a place that makes you feel at home.

The new spa is excellent but you have to leave HBR to get to it and take advantage of the hydrotherapy. Still nothing beats a massage by the beach. It would be nice if there was a schedule exclusively for HBR guests an take advantage of it au naturel.

This time we stayed in the second floor so we missed having a quick and easy access to the room. We prefer the swim up suites. We were in the north side and had no issues being close to the disco.

We are not fond of all inclusive meals but at HBR the food has been just great.

Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Swim up suites have the best access to the room. Second and third floor rooms have a better view.

Absolutely outstanding!! This was our first time at an Au Naturel resort and obviously our first time at Hidden Beach and it was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation we have ever had. We will be returning for a second visit soon. We met a lot of very nice people and enjoyed a full week of activities including some very fun pool volleyball and an unbelievable nude catamaran trip with snorkeling and lunch on the beach. My wife and I were very apprehensive upon arrival since we had never experienced this type of environment. However, we relaxed very quickly and shed our inhibitions right along with our clothing. It was the most enjoyable and liberating experience we could have ever imagined. Everyone was so casual and relaxed and they made us feel welcome from the very beginning. We were able to enjoy being completely nude or fully clothed depending on the mood. We traveled to Hidden Beach to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We purchased the "Anniversary" package with our trip and it was fabulous. We had a candlelight dinner of steak and lobster for two on the beach with breakfast in bed the following morning. We had 2 different couples massages with one of them being at the outstanding spa and the other massage beach side under the cabanas. The sand on the beach was not very comfortable to walk on since it was mostly crushed coral and shells. Soft sand would have been more enjoyable. The coral made relaxing or swimming in the surf nearly impossible but there were so many activities and so many nice people to hang out with that we didn't miss it at all. I would say the only improvements needed in my eyes would be softer sand on the beach and the pool heated a little better. I can see where visiting in the "winter" months may not be quite as enjoyable. There was not one single hint of any sexual overtone. Everyone was simply enjoying the peace and quiet and reconnecting. The staff was superb and very respectful of everyone. Many of them knew us by name by the second day and they catered to our every whim. The bed was remarkably comfortable and the alcohol was abundant. I highly recommend Hidden Beach if you are looking for an adults only au naturel resort that is very classy and very enjoyable.

Room Tip: We had a swim up Jr. suite and absolutely loved the close proximity to everything. It was very quiet...

Outstanding resort!

The employee's are outstanding and for the most part have been there several years and are very experienced. We have been there 4 times over 10 years and they still remember us each time we arrive. It is absolutely the best vacations we have experienced. You can be nude 24-7 or clothed when you want. NO stress, NO worries, NO one bothering you or your spouse. The staff has one goal and that is to make YOU happy. The new spa is outstanding! The Exotic Traveler program is great. You have no annual dues as you do with all other time shares. This gives you a huge advantage on expenses over time. Of course they have issues from time to time as all resorts do. Cant wait to go back.... You wont be disappointed.

A few pointers-
1. Get the Lomas private transfer from the airport it gets you there a little quicker as you don't have to stop at other resorts and let people off at their resort. It's worth the extra $50.
2. If you want to go back and forth to the room a lot during the day (which we do) get a swim up suite. If you want to look at the Ocean from your room the 2nd and third floor are what you want,
3. The north 2 or 3 rooms do get a little noise from the disco if you are early to bed it may bother you. But the north side is your closer to the big hot tub.
4. I have not been there in the winter time but I understand HBR needs to heat the pool a little better?
5. You will not be able to venture into the ocean very far as the coral from the reefs washes up towards the beach, but if you venture to far the Eldorado members are next door looking at you,
(wishing they were on the HBR side).
6. The Eldorado is available to use as you want but that side is not nearly as much fun.
7. You can get involved in the fun at HBR (water volleyball,poker night,disco,ect. or you can just sit on the beach and watch the waves while no one bothers you other than to bring you something to drink or eat.
8. There are more than enough cabana's and chairs on the beach and around the pool so relax you don't have to get up early and reserve one.
9. You will see people from all age groups from 30 to 70.

If you want to relax with no worries! This is the place to do it. The staff will take care of everything for you.
