This is my third visit to Hideaway in twelve months - haven't written on Tripadvisor before because I wanted to keep it my special secret. But have decided that's selfish and Hideaway's magic should be shared with everyone. The first thing I love is being able to step into the water and be immediately surrounded by coloured fish swimming around... More

This was one of the most magical trips we've had so fun. Beautiful people, weather and the best snorkelling we've had so far. Thank you mamma Alice, Rosa and the rest of the Hideaway team for your great customer service

My family and I stayed here in July, 2014. We loved it. The snorkelling is fantastic, the room was large and had a lovely view. The glass bottom boat trip and snorkel safari, offered free of charge, was great. We also really enjoyed the Melenesian Feast night with live music. The restaurant was decent, nothing special, but the food was... More

With a variety of room choices available we chose the simple bungalow on the beach with separate, shared, toilet and shower facilities because the price was so attractive and we stepped straight out of our room and into the tepid waters of an amazing coral bay. The views from our shared 'old Queenslander' style wooden verandah were magic and we... More

First let me get out out that could easily be a 5 star standout and is worthy of spending the day there at the very least, we stayed two nights mostly because of the location, the snorkeling and diving close to the island. The only reason I gave it four stars was the noise the diesel generator makes can be... More

We stayed in the Villa overlooking the beautiful Mele Bay. The villa had everything you could possibly wish for. The staff were incredible and always eager to make our stay as memorable as possible. The scuba diving and snorkelling is by far the best I have done. The dive team was fantastic!! We did a scuba diving course whilst we... More

First things first, don't bother with transfers unless you really like being super organized. Way cheaper to get a taxi to the beach & the ferry is always there with a staff member on the beach. VT 2000 in total. We arrived 2 hrs before check in, however this was no problem for them and our lovely cool drinks were... More

We just arrived home from 7 days on Hideaway. Words do not do this place and the staff justice. We went to dive, but discovered so much more. The dive guys are fantastic. We just had to add extra dives in... 10 was not enough. Brian, Robbie, Joka, Neidge and Jeff were fantastic. Love these guys... So friendly, knowledgable and... More

My friend an me spent four nights in a dormitory on Hideaway Island and we loved every second of it. On arrival day we were picked up from the airport and brought to the Resort where we were greeted with welcome drinks and happy smiles from all sides. Throughout our stay staff was always super friendly and helpful. Snorkelling gear,... More

Spent a beautiful morning snorkelling among the coral and stunning fish - all many of colours, shapes and sizes .. they were not at all concerned by us swimming with them. And sending a water proof postcard in the underwater post office was a fun novelty .. chilled out at the beach bar for lunch .. thank you for a... More
