We had two variations of stone crab, both were amazing. One was prepared with a butter caper and spinach, the other was a crab salad with avocado. The view and the hospitality was fantastic. Jenny took wonderful care of us and we can't wait to go back again.

We've visited many of the Bahamas out islands but this was our first trip to Harbour Island and definitely not our last. When planning our trip it was hard to decide where to stay but Runaway Hill was a great choice and we would highly recommend. Great oceanfront location with beautiful views, great restaurant/bar, walking distance to town and awesome... More

My husband and I (and another couple) stayed the last week of Jan 2015 and we had a fabulous time at Runaway Hill. Harbor Island was amazing, beach amazing, and food AMAZING! The Manager/Owner, Jen was really nice and helpful. Her family was staying there the same time we were there and they were all so kind and friendly. Runaway... More

This is one of the best vacations I've ever had. The staff are the best and make you feel at home. Do yourself a favor and get to know them very fun people. The messier's are some of the greatest people on this planet. If you have a chance, sit down and chat with them. They won't bite (unless you... More

Our family spent the Christmas and New Year holiday at Runaway Hill - It could not have been a more relaxing and enjoyable experience. Guests mingle with each other and you feel the "Club" atmosphere. Jen Messier runs a wonderful hotel and her staff is friendly and attentive. Whether it's volleyball on the beach or a romantic dinner overlooking the... More

Beautiful island, great rooms, perfect weather, but what makes this the best are the wonderful people who run the property. Jen truly does treat her guests like family, and the staff are equally friendly and accommodating. Restaurant has the best food on the island period. We ate our way through the entire menu and enjoyed absolutely every meal. We will... More

Runaway Hill is done right. Relaxed luxury at it's finest. Jen treats her guests as family and the staff are friendly, welcoming and comforting. Vernon at the bar will cheer up your day every time !! Breakfast on the porch overlooking the beach and blue green sea is a perfect way to start the day. This is our second visit... More

We had the most wonderful stay here. Jenny and her staff were second to none. Vernon and Chris and the two ladies behind the bar (who in my Goombay Smash induced haze, I embarrasingly cannot remember their names) were so awesome. They made sure that we didn't want for anything and we slept, ate, drank and reset our clocks. The... More

We were walking down the beach and stopped in and got a drink. We met Vernon, what a nice fellow. He made us some delicious Goombay smashes and Banana Daiquiris. The view is second to none on the island. The interior is very classic, with lots of dark wood. The place looks like a great stay with just a handful... More
