“Hideaways Palm Bay Beach Club, Exuma, Bahamas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

We felt nicely accommodated in our little bungalow, which was comfortable, and had amenities including a kitchenette with a coffee pot, a toaster, a microwave, dishes, glassware and flatware. We e-mailed Palm Bay with a grocery list, and all of our requested items were in the room for us when we arrived. The main room was large and airy, the queen-size bed was lovely, and the attached bath was fully appointed with tub/shower, vanity sink and toilet, and fresh towels were delivered as needed.
Having been to Exuma many times before, we were particularly impressed on how improved the tap water was. Knowing that it comes from a desalination plant, we expected to have to use bottled water for our coffee, but this time, it wasn't necessary, as the water was not brackish or off-tasting.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Palm Bay, and would definitely visit again!

Room Tip: If you like quiet and privacy, the bungalows are a good choice.

If you are looking for peace and quiet on a fantastic beach this property is for you.
I had a studio facing the water...it was big...clean and adequate with good tv.
I read from others that the beach fronting this hotel was just ok....let me just say that this slice of sand was as nice and clear as any of the best I have seen in the world. If you want an upgrade make a left and walk 5 minutes to Jolly beach....
unreal. Now for the bumps in the road....no phone in rooms. (at least not mine)
You need to buy drinking water and it seemed to be hard to get ice. The restaurant had limited choices for lunch and dinner (same menu) and the bar was
ok for a drink to take out to the beach or room....PLEASE fix this food and bar service. The staff were outstanding....nice and helpfull....Bev and Ron along with Vincent were great. This is as said by others...a laid back...slow and easy beach
resort. If you "want the nightlife and got to boogie" go to Nassau!

Room Tip: Get a room on or facing the water

We were looking for a comfortable beach hotel at a reasonable price for a quiet get-away weekend. Palm Bay exceeded our expectations. Better maintained than most island hotels. Friendly staff. Spacious, well furnished room. Easy access to Georgetown (limited free hotel shuttle schecule). Pool and beach steps away. We would go back.

Room Tip: Both oceanside villas and condo-type units across the road are available. The condo units are less...

Absolutely amazing! You must stay here to experience the “island” life. Everyone at Palm Bay is extremely nice, laid back and very helpful. If you want to explore the island, they will guide you as to where to go on which night/days the events are happening. Our villa was Oceanside……as in within 20 yards from the ocean. It was highly maintained and very clean. Between listening to the ocean all day/night from our room/terrace, beach right in front of our room, the sunrise every morning, walks along the beaches, relaxing on the beach or by the pool, kayaking, paddle boating, this a must place to stay. We had some groceries delivered to our room the day we arrived. You can cook your own food, eat at their restaurant/bar, or go other eateries around the island. They have a shuttle into Georgetown daily and on Sunday we went to Stocking Island for the pig roast. We will come back to Exuma again and will definitely stay at Palm Bay. A very relaxing vacation!!!!

Room Tip: We LOVED laying in bed listening to the ocean....an oceanside room is a must!!!

This location is charming and so is the staff. It's the best place to stay in Exuma. The staff is both attentive and laid back. Location is first rate. It has all the important amenities, including good food. Will be back.

Why BEWARE.....Because you will be overcome by the extreme beauty of the place.
Not only is the location great, but the accommodations are exceptionally good. You only need yourselves and food, unless you want to use their good restaurant with very friendly straff.
Fish-Fry...a short distance down the road to town, has excellent and reasonable local food.Try Tinno's for the BEST fried snapper and rice !!! Awesome.

Room Tip: Should include breakfast !!
