We went as a group of 3 couples (6 adults) for a birthday celebration. From our transportation from the airport to the villa, to our greeting from the villa staff, to the meals and accommodations, we felt very well taken care of for the duration of our visit. The villa was absolutely beautiful, and just as pictured. Whether we were relaxing by the pool, taking the kayaks out for a spin in the water, or heading out for an excursion, the staff took care of our every need. Kim's food is AMAZING, and Richie was such a sweet and attentive bartender/butler. Our rooms were impeccably clean each morning, and cooled down with air conditioning every evening. We did not want for a single thing! We would highly recommend this villa/vacation to anyone. The previous reviews are correct that there is significant highway noise, but it is only noticeable at night while sleeping. If you come prepared, and know that this literally the ONLY potential drawback in this villa, you will be all set!
Hidden Bay is the perfect villa for a relaxing vacation. The entire staff was amazing. With fantastic service, food and views, there is no reason to leave the villa. The back yard is a beautiful paradise and the snorkeling was the best. Richie, the butler, makes certain that you have everything you need and Chef Lyn ensures each meal is a five star dining experience. We would recommend Hidden Bay for everyone, particularly families or groups that enjoy spending a lot of time in the water (snorkeling, kayaking, etc).
Hidden Bay was a stunning property. It looks exactly like the pictures, and once you enter the property you never want to leave. Perched on the edge of a cliff over looking blue waters, you spend all your time outdoors. There are many places to catch a shady spot and enjoy a book. We did not manage to enjoy every special spot as there are so many. They food was outstanding - Chef Lynn and team are true professionals. The rest of the team made your stay very relaxing and were discreet enough to give you and your guests the privacy you like. All rooms were wonderful - no one felt they pulled the short straw. The cottage is a real gem - just as stunning as the main house on a small scale, our four teenage boys thought they had arrived in paradise equipped with their own kitchen, sitting room and hot tub. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the walks on the beach and access the great snorkeling was a real bonus. You are in the heart of Jamaica!
Me and my family had a wonderful time at the villa. The house is really nice and the staff are so helpful and friendly. Food was excellent. Richie is just great.
I only have two comments. One is to try to fumigate more often for mosquitoes and the other is to get some rechauds to keep the food warm when it is windy, as it gets cold too fast.
The villa for our 12 guests fit our needs perfectly- everyone including the kids felt like they got the "master" bedroom and all could look out over the ocean. The real added bonus was how special the villa staff all made us feel. I am convinced that Luxury Retreats could not have done anything more to make this whole trip perfect- not just the villa.
We could not have picked better accommodations in Jamaica than Hidden Bay. The grounds are the most beautiful of any that we encountered, either on the internet, or while in country. The staff were so pleasant and met our every little need, making suggestions when appropriate and just overall attending us to perfection. We cannot wait to return to this little slice of heaven on earth.
