Very quiet. Awesome scenery.Posted Nov 13, 2014
Pros: Very quiet and peaceful.
Cons: It's not close to any town/shopping, etc.
Location: if you want to hike wooded trails and see waterfalls, this is the place.
The road to the Inn is very bad. If driving in yourself, you need to have the appropriate vehicle. Make sure the rental company allows your vehicle to go off of paved roads. The staff was super friendly and efficient. The main building at the resort is a house that was converted and the rooms are free standing duplexes a short walk from the main building. When we arrived, we were greeted outside and given a short orientation on the resort and surrounding property. The rooms are nice. There is a phone and fireplace, but no TV or air conditioner. A ceiling fan makes sleep comfortable. The staff kept our room spotless. They also have a fireplace in each room with a stockpile of wood/kindling. This was a nice amenity as it got slightly chilly at night. There is a pool, screen porch, small lounge with reading material, bar, and dining area. 7200 acres of land to explore on foot or by vehicle. Butterfly Falls is amazing and worth the hike. You can swim in the pool at the bottom, but the water is spring fed so it’s a bit cold. You need to be in moderately good shape to go on the hikes. There are walking sticks at the entrances to most trails. I would recommend taking them as they help with all of the rocks/steps you need to navigate. The Cascade Trail is also highly recommended. It follows the river and has numerous primitive bridges across the water. Dining was very good. The chef knows what he is doing. Continental breakfast is othing special: yogurt, cereal, juice, a few piece

Serene setting but a terriblle driving conditionsPosted Sep 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hidden Valley is located in the Mountain Pine Ridge. There are dozens of waterfalls on the property (all 20+mintue hike away once you drive to the trail head). I would have put the hotel near at least one of its many natural watering holes. The hikes are worth the effort. The Butterfly falls are stunning. You are very isolated here. The roads to hidden valley are treacherous and terrible. The hotel service was inconsistent, Sometimes it was amazing and other times it was disastrous. When we were checking out, we asked for help with our luggage 3 times before we decided to load it ourselves. However the bartender Tito was so nice and Tiffany was so sweet, that it was hard to give the service a bad rating. I would avoid the front desk lady Neidy. Her advice turned out to be always wrong and often misleading. For example, when I asked about the night hike, she said ".... some guests see jaguars..." We all know that would be extremely rare!!! and not something I would even mention to a patron. She also told us Caracol would be 3 hours away (one way), which is not true. etc etc The general managers Brit and Wayne were really nice. Hopefully they can breath life to the place, which was a bit drab in the evenings. This place overall was mignificant due to the serene setting and nice rooms. Most of the staff really did try very hard to show us a nice time and we enjoyed our time very much. I hope to one day return. A wonderful, unque place.

Nice place to get away from everythingPosted Jul 11, 2013
The Hidden Valley Inn is a nice place to go if you want to go somewhere to get away from everything. You have to be prepared for a long drive on a pretty bumpy road to get there (although they do have an airstrip close by but then if you want to go somewhere, again prepare for a long bumpy ride). The property itself is quite extensive and you have access to some pretty spectacular waterfalls. The accommodations themselves were nice and the food was decent but unless you do a day trip, the resort is the only option for food choices. The staff is extremely friendly and there are so many of them that you don't ever feel like you have to hunt someone down if you have a question or want to arrange a day trip. I would definitely go back and would recommend the place to anyone who wans a nice, quiet, secluded and all inclusive place to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Lovely inn for nature loversPosted Mar 5, 2013
Pros: Quietness and access to lovely hiking
Cons: Very long drive on a back road to inn
Location: Isolated but lovely for nature enthusiasts
After arriving (long drive) we were greeted by a welcoming/friendly employee and given a complimentary hand massage. The bedroom was adorned with flowers scattered on the bed; we loved the sounds of the birds in the morning.
