We spent a long weekend snorkelling and diving and had a fantastic time. Our villa was large and had great views. The place does need a bit of maintenance these days but nothing that put us off from coming back. We are looking forward to our return later this year. The staff were great. I agree with the comments though... More

Just back from a week at Hideaway and I'm trying hard to find the next time I can go there! The sea is incredibly clear and the abundance of fishes hard to compete with. Snorkeling is enough to see clown fish colonies a few meters from the shore, and I can hardly recollect how many different species of fish and... More

But we don't care "we cant wait to go back" Why? because of the staff (and I'm not talking about the managers, not much too say about them really, we didn't see them for the first... More

My partner and I stayed at Hideaway Island Resort in June of 2013 for 5 nights. We had an amazing time there and really loved the snorkeling, which is the best I've experienced to date. However if you are looking for a 5 star, secluded experience with perfect sandy beaches, this is not the place for you. For starters the... More

Just got home from wonderful Hideaway and we didn't want to leave. Mark and Sue are fabulous and made us feel very much at home. All the staff are friendly and bend over backwards to make your stay memorable and we made some great friends.We will definately be back. Thanks for a great time.

The service is great, swimming over the reef, so many fish, moray eels, stonefish, and other treasures. Then there was last night's dinner! Reef and beef from the blackboard menu, it was to die for, the chef, Joe Morris excelled!

Guys don't know about... More

I have to agree with much of the previous review. We went as a family to relax and snorkel. It was the first time my husband had traveled although the children and I have been on several holidays around the Pacific. We stayed in a villa which on the surface and at first glance was very comfortable. The deck was... More
