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 a spectacular oasis. Waking up to the ocean waves crashing against the reefs and then walking out onto the porch is a memory that I have embedded in my mind. Everywhere you walk, there is another place to explore- the hot tub provided the backdrop for our late afternoon cocktails as we watched the sun set. The lower level was a great place to swim out into the sea or just watch the fishermen trying to catch their daily meals. We used the smaller cottage for our spa afternoon- Verona and Joy set up their tables on the porch and created the most relaxing atmosphere. The staff at the villa couldn't have been more gracious. Kim's cooking was fantastic! She made sure that my special dietary needs were met and did a great job of not wasting any of the food. Tommy and Ritchie made sure that our glasses were never empty and our belly's were always full of Kim's yummy creations. On the eve of my sister-in-law's birthday, they set up tables for cocktails, strung lights across trees and created a beautiful and festive vibe. I think the staff had fun when the got to see one of the members of the steel band surprise us as he started dancing and juggling with fire! What a memorable moment. Other memorable moments came when we went snorkeling and of course our trip to Secret Falls. We actually thought about not doing the lazy river but I am so glad that we decided to traveled down together while singing our favorite Bob Marley songs. The views were again, amazing and the memories were priceless. I hope to visit Hidden Bay again and I long for Kim's banana nut muffins. Thank you for recommending Hidden Bay. Thank you for helping me plan my birthday celebration. I am grateful for the lasting imprint this trip gave me. Fondly, Gail and Reed Slogoff
