“THE VERY, VERY BEST!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I have traveled a lot on the islands in the Bahamas, and by FAR Exuma and THE HIDEAWAYS has been my best experience! The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, the staff is wonderful and if anyone is looking for a place to "get away from it all" without leaving the comforts of home, this is IT. Thanks to these folks for puttng a home away in paradise!!!

Room Tip: Didn't have room service, don't even know if there is a fitness center, but there is so much...

This is a low key comfortable resort conveniently located in the middle of the island. If you are looking for something fancy this is not the place for you. If you want a place to kick back and relax where you can step out of your room and sit on the beach, this is the place for you. The snorkeling right in front of the resort is great! Rooms are privately owned villas and come with full kitchens and some of the villas have laundry facilities too. The restaurant has a limited menu but the food is good. They are planning to update the menu in September. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I hated leaving this place!
Check out Out Island Explorers to take a snorkel trip or visit the other cays.

Room Tip: The newer villas have dishwashers and laundry facilities.

Stayed there end of August with my daughters 15 & 17 years old. Great location, Exuma is awesome, especially if you rent a boat to visit the other islands, some of them unbelievably gorgeous. Be aware that keeping the boat at Palm Bay is not safe because of tide and waves. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly, appartments are ok, but nothing special. My only real criticism: Food selection at Splash's is really limited, especially from a European point of view this is more on the "fast food side" with burgers, sandwiches and pizzas.

Nevertheless: been to Mauritius, Maledives, Phi Phi Island and even the Datai in Langkawi, but nothing compares to the Exumas from a water / beach / sea / colour perspective!

Room Tip: ...and do not miss the pigs and the grotto!

Situated in what can only be described as Paradise, this resort is great for couples, familes and friends. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and homely. I have stayed at this resort three times for two weeks at a time and am already planning my trip for next year!
When it comes to staff Latovia, or 'Tovi' as she said we could call her, is one of the most friendly and helpful people I have encountered on any holiday. She could not have been more helpful and welcoming.

On arrival we were met with great service and hospitality. Latovia made our experience comfortable, easy and so much fun. A mention also goes to Patrick & Vincent.

The Staff are the heart of this hotel and without them our experience would not have been the same.

We highly recommend this place, the atmosphere created by the staff will make you feel at home away from home.
