A fantastic stay in what feels like the best spot on the island. The wifi is patchy at best and our air con and hot water took turns to cut out throughout the stay but really couldn't have imagined a better place to stay - across the road from a perfect deserted beach, a central location on the island so...

Stayed here from September 15 to 22 in the pink villa as part of a group of four women. We had read the reviews before booking and understood that it was a self-service 'hotel' and was not directly on the water. It was a little rougher than we expected, for example: - the fridge door was rusted on the exterior... More

We rented the yellow villa on oct 18th thru the 25th of 2013. At first impression we all felt robbed at the price we paid. The PROS: location was nice, the beach was nearby and a kitchen. The CONS: the beds were broken the framing was touching the floor, the wifi never worked EVER. The phones never worked and we... More

We rented out all four cottages for a wedding. We had a few issues like the a/c and what not buy Roslin made sure to fix it ASAP. As you are on an island that isn't the richest place and they are not as efficient as our country so when the wifi isn't 100% that's not the owners fault. If... More

After doing quite a bit of research on Hoopers Bay Villas, and reading some reviews we decided to take our chances and stay here as we were looking for space, value and location.

The idea is brilliant. The cottages are well furnished, they do have everything you need for a vacation. Its close to an amazing beach, everything is so so so nice in the Exuma!! But its very badly managed. First, it advertises stuff that is not true. It says it has internet. And it doesn't. We stayed for 2 weeks in... More

Dear Delfinita, Thanks for your comments and suggestions. We are pleased that you found the cottages to be well-furnished, well- equipped and close to an amazing beach. To level set expectations (as advertised on our website), Hoopers Bay Villas are self-service cottages. There is no front desk or concierge service. However, we do have staff that will check in on...

Good point for hoopers bay villas: The cottages are very spacious and clean, there are many air conditioners that make very nice place to relax. The place is very well placed, there is the most beautiful beach in front of the cottages, which allowed bathing every morning after breakfast. Against access by the beach is well hidden so you need... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hoopers Bay Villas Exuma are authentic self-service Bahamian cottages. You will get a true Out-Island experience. You visit Exuma because you want to get away from the noise and crowded beaches. Coming to Exuma for the Disney effect is like going to Vegas for culture and studying the desert ecosystem. Exuma is rustic and pristine. There are no high-risers, traffic lights or fast food restaurants. What you will find is a quiet place to slow down, and reconnect with your inner self. Hoopers Bay Villas Exuma is the perfect place to relax after a day of biking, snorkeling, kayaking or relaxing on one of the nearby beaches. Recreation equipment is provided. You can take the kayaks and explore Hoopers Bay beach or your can explore the Mangroves to the south of the property. Some of our guests go bird watching (binoculars are provided). Each Exuma Cottage has 2 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms – one bedroom with a Queen bed and the other with two Twin Beds, great for families or couples. Kitchens are fully equipped and there are outdoor showers for rinsing off the sand, upon your return from the beach. You can enjoy the evening breezes on the front or back porches, grill your catch or just hang out with your neighbors. The property is centrally located and within walking distance to a well stocked food store and liquor store. There are nearby restaurants and downtown is only 5+ minutes away by car. This is a warm and welcoming community, the people are friendly and there is staff on hand to answer your questions. ... more   less
