could not believe how clean my villa was when i walked in the door. the smell of cleaners and all the ceramic .. wow
and the staff was great , bar and grill food was very good and portions were big.
Found the owners bent over backwards to help out.

Room Tip: i had the ocean view one bedroom studio . that i recommend for a couple bucks more a night over just...

My husband & I were there as part of a kayak adventure to the Cays, and stayed at the Hideaways for 3 1/2 of our 12 days. This is a wonderful, peaceful place to spend vacation time - cottages are clean and roomy, the staff is lovely and accomodating, Splash has great food, and the grounds are beautiful. We walked into town and the hospitality van came to bring us back. We returned home on 11/30 to cold, cold weather...and seriously re-thought our decision to come home. I would return in a heart-beat. Great place to relax, make new friends, and forget the hustle and bustle of our lives.

My son and I were there for Mother's Day weekend. I was so surprised by the lovely cottage, just steps away from the ocean. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We kayaked, swam (in both the pool and the blue waters), and my son snorkeled. There was van service into Georgetown every 2 hours. Splash has good pizza and fish, but the prices were a bit high. I was able to relax and enjoy my surroundings better than I have in years. Will definitely return.

This place is great! It is very laid back and relaxed. The rooms are clean and comfortable-- some of them even have washers and dryers which is awesome if you are staying for more than a few nights. It is right on the beach with spectacular views. The restaurant is yummy. You are close enough to walk into town or there is a shuttle. Love it!

Room Tip: There is pool side or beach side or up on a hill with a view. Some of the rooms have washers and dr...

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.

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!
