"A First-Timer’s Review of Hidden Beach - AWESOME"
Without one reservation, we absolutely highly recommend HBR. Any anxiety melted away within in the first few hours after arriving - we never felt uncomfortable. The staff and guests are super friendly and respectful, and everyone on staff that we encountered seemed truly interested in making sure we enjoyed our stay. Food and service was outstanding. HBR is ideal for a quiet relaxation or a romantic get-away. You are totally free to do your own thing, or to join in to the organized group activities – which vary depending upon the level of interest on any given day. Daniel (the activities director who had only been on the job 2 weeks) took a sincere interest in making sure you got to enjoy your stay, and facilitating the activities you were interested in (like painting coconuts, or beach bocce, or just chilling in the sun). There is a minimal late night party scene - with entertainment at the bar / nightclub which seems to wrap up by midnight. There is a unique benefit of having the El Dorado Seaside Suites right next door. It’s an adults only clothed environment (which became a hassle the further we got into the week), which offered more activities, a water accessible beach, and a wider variety of restaurants and night / dance clubs. That benefit particularly extend to their hidden gem of a restaurant – The Gourmet Pub - targeted for the modern meat-loving ‘foodie’. Chef Paulo runs a well-oiled machine – offering an amazing food and service.

"Relax in amazing Comfort"
My family (5) stayed at Grand Residence by Royal from August 27th to September 2nd. From the moment we were picked up at the airport I felt relaxed and decompressed. We were greeted at the airport with our own shuttle and a very polite driver, who well in transit ordered us a drink of our choice for when we arrived at the hotel. We were greeted at the doors by the welcoming staff given our drinks and taken for a tour of the hotel and straight to our room where our luggage had already arrived. The room "WOW", and our family has travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean, so I can recognize "WOW". The food, the resort grounds were all fantastic, but most importantly was the incredible service by every employee at the resort. Every employee made an effort to make your trip more enjoyable, remembering your name, your drink of choice, preparing your chair at pool side, making sure your meal was perfect, turn down service at night, they all played role in making sure you enjoyed every minute of your stay. There are many other goodies that I could describe but I don't want to spoil the surprises and the moments of all the special events.

"Quiet Hideaway...time & place to decompress"
A very short trip for us, but we will be returning. A nice relaxed vibe. A low key, understated and well kept property. If you don't want the large resort and love peace & tranquility, this place is it. Beautiful clean beach. Very hospitable staff. The food was excellent. One must have the juevos mortulenos at breakfast. The room's decor is very simple..all in white. very calm and clean. Great smelling all natural soaps, shampoo & body oil. Nice music selection in the ipods. Excellent massage at the Spa. One must do the morning yoga. I did Anusara yoga with Olga. She was a wonderful teacher. The pools are long enough to do some laps if you want a little exercise. The pain au chocolat in the early morning pastry basket was to die for. Don't step away from the basket or the birds will come and get them. The bungalows are nestled into the natural fauna. I saw several typed of birds, iguanas, squirrels and even a slim, fast garden snake. You get the full experience get to be surrounded by nature and have the comfort of luxury accommodations

"Fantastic relaxing getaway"
Grand Velas Riviera is a gorgeous resort. First off, the spa is absolutely incredible. Having been to many spas in the Caribbean, I think it's fair to say that this is likely the best or one of the best spas I've experienced. Second, there are ample dining options all of which are better than average to great. The rooms are spacious and clean and with gorgeous reviews. While the beach is beautiful, the ocean is not really conducive to swimming. If you're looking for ample water time, it's going to be the pool, which, as noted earlier, is gorgeous.

"Perfect Resort"
We loved this place so much, it's the first resort we swear we will return to. Location is perfect, walk right out the front door into the heart of Playa del Carmen. Hotel amenities were great, the massage we had was one of the best we've ever had and by FAR the best we've ever had at a resort. Food, drinks, landscaping, staff, all were fabulous. If we have to find a complaint it's that they're having some beach erosion problems and the water some days has a sulfuric smell. If you walk up the beach to the left the erosion problem goes away. If you walk to the right the erosion problem gets much worse, but you can see they're trying to stop it. Would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a resort to relax and do nothing, or someone looking for a resort to party with the other patrons. You can literally have privacy and do nothing or party with others in the pool or beach. There are plenty of excursions to go on as well. You can see Cozumel from the Royal.

"We had a wonderful 8 Days."
Hotel grounds were beautiful. Food was excellent. Our swim-up room was a must have. The hotel service was good but I think they can use more staff. After 4pm for your room to be made up is unacceptable. Then turn down at 6pm. Our personal concierge was wonderful. Biggest complaint was the grass removal from the ocean. There were many day workers walking back and forth between our building. Plastic bags on there backs to carry the grass bags and it was a constant parade for at least 3 of our days.

"Nice hotel but beach access would be nice."
The hotel was nice but there was no in room wifi. There was no ATM in the lobby or anywhere in the hotel. Some of the staff we got to know were: David, Victoria, Juan, Isamar and Azucena were like family and we enjoyed seeing them everyday. The menus were tasty but there was no way to order coffee, tea or other beverages for room service. There was no beach access but the pool was great and the property was very peaceful. We will return one day but no time soon.
