Hideaways at Palm Bay has a great location for easy access to Georgetown,(if don't rent a car, hotel offers a shuttle on schedule), short airport ride, short walk to Jolly Hall Beach, 1 mi.walk to local fish fry area. Resort supplied water sports equipment and lovely water and beach to kayak and SUP. After two trips to Abaco, Exuma was... More

Overall all I felt like the locals were not that happy for us to be on their island! It was hard to get our towels exchanged for clean ones. There were no washer or dryer, yet no one came to swap out our sandy sheets all week! There were little tiny bugs all over our kitchen! The food was expensive... More

We recently returned from a 7 night stay at Hideaways Palm Bay, overall we had a great experience and would definitely return again. We found the beauty of both the island and it's people overwhelming and greater than we could have ever imagined. Check in: After a 20 minute drive from the airport we arrived in the late afternoon, check... More

We arrived in Exuma, Bahamas, a day early for our seven-day stay at Sandals, so we needed a hotel that could put us up for just one night. I was traveling with my sister and my parents, and we wanted a place with two beds that allowed four people. After checking around a little bit we chose Hideaways at Palm... More

From the moment we landed, the people of Exuma were warm and courteous. The staff (Keithra, Kelly, Wellington, Latvia just to mention a few) greeted us warmly and met or every need throughout our stay. Remember you are on an outer island and the fun and adventure never ends.

We stayed in No. 4 for five nts. You could hear the ocean at night, and a lovely kitty adopted me for the entire stay. There was a huge blow-out party at a restaurant at the next property on Fri night. I could hear and enjoy the music, and followed a path to get closer to watch the revelry, but... More

My family stayed in #34 last week and it was PERFECT. Right next to the ocean. Steps away from Splash Bar and Grill. A short walk to Jolly beach......one of the most beautiful secluded beaches you will see. It had everything you needed inside, the kitchen was stocked. There was a number of snorkels, fins, water toys, beach chairs, beach... More

This resort offers a cheap way to visit Great Exuma. It was our second time. We rented the same villa (32) which is in front of the beach and has 2 rooms. It is perfect for a family. Unlike our previous stay which had been booked with Air Canada, we rented directly from the resort's website. We felt that something... More

We stayed here for a week in the town houses with family friends. It was awesome! The boats for day trips pick you up at the dock at the resort which makes getting around very easy. There was also a fish fry near by that you could walk to that had dancing and yummy food. To get to Georgetown, you... More

This resort is 10 minutes drive from the airport, $30.00 flat fee by taxi one way and you can ask the driver to stop at the supermarket on the road along the way before arriving. Hideaways is 5 minutes drive to George Town by complimentary shuttle. There are older cottages with ocean or garden view by the beach and newer... More
