5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

This property is not upscale or perfect but I cannot say enough nice things about the management and staff. Many businesses say they will treat you like family but these people really do. The beach is not great but it is a short walk to Jolly Hall beach which is beautiful. Its quicker by the road than by the shore. I wish I could stay

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.

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