many, be at the top of high-end Caribbean

clothing-optional resorts.

On arrival guests, most of whom are
couples, find a carefully prepared room
featuring chilled champagne and a double
Jacuzzi full of hot water and topped
with rose petals. Hidden Beach’s general
manager of nine years, Paula Negrete, said
that as of fall 2010, “All the rooms are
brand new with awesome king size beds and
Fresh amenities like plasma televisions.”

The beat of Hidden Beach unfolds
in a soft, easy, and relaxed movement. The
focus of excitement each day is a late-morning, lively water volleyball game. That’s
about all the delight guests seek as they
escape the anxiety of their daily lives and
enjoy being absolutely cared for by the staff.

The site is also visually beautiful, with
ocean waves breaking, shadows of palms
on the deck, in addition to the flowers and
plants accentuating the manicured property.
For many guests, this is the definition of

The 42 units are on two wings
that frame the central pool bar and dining
Region, a design that brings people together
and boosts long-lasting friendships.
People speak to each other here, in the two
Oversize hot tubs, as well as around the
pool and pub. Through the day, the

incrediby well-trained staff engages guests
in delightfully friendly manners, like providing your favored drink as soon as you
arrive at your strand chair, or greeting you
by name after only one assembly.

Negrete explained the value
Hidden Beach areas on its customer service. “The staff is the same year by year.
We’ve got employees that have been working for Hidden Beach for ten years before
the resort reopened in 2010. That also
makes the setting of the resort. The
staff know the guests by name, also as
their individual needs. What we do is have
a file of all the guests by their last names
with a record of their requests. If you’re a
Fresh guest, we open a file for you from the
first day you arrive until the last day.”

She continued. “For example, we
know that one guest adores champagne, so

because of that we
gave her a very nice bottle last
Nighttime. Another loves drinking Baileys
Irish Cream. That is something that we
can add to our product. When the guest
has a special needs request, of course we
try our best to surpass their anticipation”.
With the remodel in 2010, the waterfront palapas are extended down
the shore to provide quiet and private
space for those wishing it. The hammock
Region is another fresh addition offering quiet
and a degree of solitude under a canopy of
trees. The 2010 addition of the wide
Moonlight Palapa, with its bar, dancing
Flooring, and a super-sized hot tub lets
guests to dance or soak the night away.
Swimming at Hidden Beach is more
a instance of wading in either the pool or the
ocean, with guests enjoying a walk in the
artificial river winding outside the rooms,
or seeing what the ocean offers on the
shallow, protected girls nude beach .
While there’s no need to ever leave
the resort or place on your clothing, most
guests see Hidden Beach’s sister cloth
resort, El Dorado Seaside. Found next
door, Seaside offers six eatery alternatives
from the proper and gourmet to casual
Outside dining, all which are comprised
in the Hidden Beach all-inclusive bundle. Yucatan day tours of all kinds can be
booked at the Seaside tour desk, but for
most, Hidden Beach is the only destination desired.
And guests just keeping coming back.
One guest particularly, who everyone
knows as “Bob,” has been to Hidden
Shore a resort-record 28 times. Many
other guests report that they are frequent
visitors and see no reason to go anyplace
else. When asked why they keep coming back, they all have the same reply,
pointing to Hidden Beach’s little size, the
friendly staff who know them by name,
and the outstanding food.
Negrete is proud of what Hidden
Shore provides. “The setting in this
part of the Caribbean is wonderful and
peaceful. The atmosphere that we offer
here is like a club. Everybody satisfies and during the week they relax and

make friends. When they come back here,
they feel like they are home and are part of
our family.”

With prices ranging between $250 to
$300 per person per night (depending on
booking times and available discounts), by
nudist resort standards Hidden Beach is
High-priced. Nevertheless, given the all-inclusive
food and beverages, the selection of seven
Eateries between Hidden Beach and
El Dorado Seaside, and impeccable happy
service, it’s worth it, and something that
naturists should attempt to treat themselves to
at least once. But be warned, if you come
once, you will be back!
