This is an awesome property. The resort is beautiful, the rooms are beautiful the people are beautiful. I've travelled throughout the Bahamas because of my job and have seen alot of hotels. This is my #1 recommendation for Great Exuma.

Fully supporting the other recent reviews for Pam Bay. A great laid-back and small resort with clean and very comfortable accommodation. We spent a week in unit 36, a wonderful, immaculate two-story condominium. Used one of the mooring balls for our 19' whaler - no fuss. Splash is ok with a typical bar food menu, and most of the staff... More

Excellent place! Accommodation was more than I expected, very new, comfortable and well furbished cottages and extremely clean. We had also a great terrace with a fantastic view to the sea. This is one of the very few places that looked better that what I saw in the internet!!!! Service was correct but I must say that the "friendliness level"... More

Palm Bay Club was an excellent place to stay. Very clean, staff very helpful and friendly and very accomodating. It was great to have a dock for the boat. They set us up with a grill, so we cooked out every night. There is a lot of room outside not to bother others around you. Would definitely return.

We had another perfect week at Palm Bay. We always rent a boat (Minn's) and use the boat the same way you would use a car on another trip. Groceries at Exuma Market are easy with a boat. We spent a delightful week puttering around Elizabeth Harbour and visiting deserted sugar sand beaches. Perfect sleeps at our seaside villa made... More

My husband and I just returned from a 10 night stay at the Hideaway at Palms Bay. It was our first visit to Great Exuma, and we loved every moment of our vacation! Our room at the Hideaways was much larger than we anticipated - complete with a bedroom, 2 bathrooms, 2 TVs, a full kitchen equipped with stove, fridge/freezer,... More

Every time we look at going back to Exuma, we consider the other places to stay, but there are MANY reason we keep staying at Palm Bay. I've mentioned all of them in previous reviews, but if you haven't read them before.... The location is great. Being close to George Town is convenient for the trips to the grocery store... More

Our first time to Exuma was amazing. We stayed at Hideaways on June 24th - 27th 2012. We really enjoyed ourselves and the villa we stayed in was beautiful - Everything looked new and clean. Very friendly staff and excellent food. Real island life, laid back and relaxing. Will be going again in the near future.

We stayed at the Hideaways June 17-20, 2012 and was very surprised at the accommodations, relaxing atmosphere and beautiful beaches!! We rented villa # 34, a 2/2 and it was outstanding. New everything, very clean, cold a/c and full kitchen, washer and dryer. A short five minute walk and you are at Jolly beach....the most beautiful beach I have ever... More

I stayed one night for business and found Hideaways to be a mixed bag. The room was very clean and modern and was nicely furnished. The negatives are as follows: 1. no hot water in the room which I didn't discover until shower time. 2. small spiders ...probably a dozen or so...scurrying over the bathroom sink. 3. Terrible service in... More
