“From really good to really bad.......”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

stayed August 25th to sept 1st 2013.......

This is one of those rare reviews I've written, that I find myself on the "fence". Its a little long, but there is some good info in here about Exuma in general.

These four, villa/cottage type houses have SO much potential!!

I'm not sure how to start, but i will start with random tips / thoughts......

- Its location is perfect in my opinion, 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach on Hoopers Bay. We cut thru a vacant beach house property, that had the sign out at road called "All is Well". Apparrently there is another, private path to follow but we never found it. The kayaks provided by the villas are decent, and the bay is easily crossed in short time..... the beach chairs are in good shape as well.

- we were dropped off at the villa's to the welcoming arms of..... NO ONE!! We didnt even have a greeting card in our villa, with our names on it, to ensure we knew we had the correct villa lol

- If you're staying here, your probably a seasoned, adventure type of traveller, and not looking to be pampered, cause you are on your own! Roslin the handy man didnt show up til about 36 hours or more later, and we rarely seen him. Which didnt bother us, but other might not like being left to fend for themselves. He's a quiet, nice guy though.....

- the internet rarely worked, and I know the villa book says put away the gadgets, but the internet is a valuable tool to check weather / day trips / reviews etc., The TV in our villa worked 6 out of 7 days..... the other villa with the couple from Vancouver, never had internet, nor TV, any of the days. I will tell you the TV was a nice luxury at night after a long day of being in the sun

- Its about a 20 minute bike ride into George town. We used the bikes at the villa's. They are a little dated / rickety, but worked well for us. We biked everyday into the town (rain or shine) and had a great time. We became a well known site on the road into town, and in the town. Particularly on the heavy rain day, the locals were all waving and in awe of us biking thru the town! People on bikes are a rarity it seems! Just be careful. The roads can narrow, and be extra careful at night. We found ourselves getting home late, and we were very sure to pull over, and let cars pass us.

- We also biked everyday to the grocery store (SMittys), which was about 3 minutes on bike. We'd bring a back pack and load up on food /beer. I found the food prices reasonable, and the beer was comparable to prices in canada. We found HIGH ROCK to be the best, with also the best prices (5 beers for $6 I think its was, or 6 beers for $ 5)..... all the same I guess. We bought limes to add to the beer.

- If you're coming in on a sunday, make sure you've brought food / drinks from home. We did thankfully, since everything seemed to be closed. In fact, we didnt bring enough food from home, and we didn't we bring any beer. We did bring coffee, tea, spices, rice, pasta, butter, cream, spaghetti sauce. The store does offer all these items though. Pasta was very reasonably priced, so if you have a room issue in your luggage, its cheap to buy. Coffee was expensive if i remember correctly. Bring bacon!

- we cooked everyday..... the frozen chicken breast from Smittys was very good, to my surprise....very flavourful. Its so easy to whip up a dinner, and save some dollars..... we werent on a tight budget, but the prices at the restaurents are not cheap...... a couple nights we had curry chicken with rice, next night pasta..... frozen hamburgers from smittys we cooked on the outdoor electric grill, and they were good!

- here's an easy curry recipe..... pan fry the chicken with onions / green peppers. In a side pot pour one can of cream of chicken soup, add a 3/4 can of milk (not a full as the label says)......add lots of curry powder to the soup, and let it simmer for 20 - 30 minutes. When done pour into fry pan with the chicken / onoins etc., simmer while the rice cooks. Then ladel some onto the rice. We bought all these ingredients from Smittys for about $ 9 except the curry powder which we brought..... the curry will give you a great flavour of the islands. Add in a few high rocks with lime, and you can feed four for about $ 20..... this meal would cost $ 150 at some popular places on the island

- the kitchen we had in our villa was not fully equipped (the oven part of the stove didnt work).....only a couple pots / pans but we cooked some great meals...... no can opener (bring one! the kind that has a bottle opener) there were Lots of plates etc, forks / spoons..... beware of being clean!!!! Our villa had a thousand ants it seems..... and they seemed to find a scrap or a crumb of food anywhere...... the ants didnt bother us at first, but they are prevalent in the villa, with no bug killer. We often used the broom to brush them out the door. Thankfully, we never found any ants in our bedroom.

- we also made lots of ice, to pack drinks with to head out with.... we forgot to bring our collapsable cooler, but we made out ok

- We rented a car from thompsons car rental..... it was a total of about $ 95 per day. We only rented it for one day, since we enjoyed the bike rides into town. We got the car at about 9 30 AMish, and you then have it for 24 hours. We first went to the Barraterre town tip of the island, and had a couple beers at the Circle T bar with Lloyd the owner, also met some other locals, bought some fruit. On the way back we stopped at some deserted beaches ( note: When we went to Exuma, it was slow season..... we went to 8 different beaches, and found almost no one.... to the point where we walked NAKED on almost every Beach, with a beer in hand!!....very liberating!!) .... on our way back thru Hoopers Bay and into George town, some of the locals we'd met were so happy we had a car lol, and no bikes. It was quite funny actually. I'd made a point to say Hi and talk to everyone we seen, and it paid off big time. Do it yourself.... everyone is so friendly.

- car rental tip....in slow season, rent the car at noon or 1ish, use that afternoon to do some exploring, then get up early the next morning and explore another part.... that way you almost get it for 2 days! just have it back by the 24 hour mark! Driving on the left is easy.... dont worry about it.

- After getting thru G Town, we headed south to LIttle Exuma, and to Williams Town. We wandered thru the Herimtage site, and we were left perplexed why its being left to ROT..... but pretty cool history though.

We then went to Santana's for a beer, and were shocked to see the most amazing little beach, with the most incredible water you may ever see in your life!! You most go there!

- We became regulars at the "Peace and PLenty"..... Doc Lermon behind the bar is a wonderful man, with a ton of island history in his head..... Magnolia at the front desk is a beautiful woman.... we sang the "Sloop John B" together at the bar one night. Make sure you visit Peace....

- dinners out were limited, but we did enjoy Shirleys, at the Fish Fry shacks, plus Bikini Bottoms in town for a fish sandwich. The best was the jerk stand near the town park. Really nice guy runs it, we had the ribs and chicken combo.

- Grab a few beers from John Marshalls Liqour store and sit on the wall of the bridge and watch the world go by. Say hi to everyone.....

Exuma is an interesting place..... its arguably 2nd World filled with 1st class people. The outlying parts of the island are as they might have been 50 years ago....

We were a little dismayed with the garbage all along the roads, but thats just the way it is.

We will be back, and we would consider staying here again.....but with so much to see/ and so many places to stay, we would probably go elsewhere. I dont think the Villa's get a lot of return customers..... we like to travel rough / budget (since thats where you meet the best people), but even we were a little bit put off by the place, but it was a great place for us to learn about the island....

Good luck, and feel free to ask any questions

We rented out all four cottages for a wedding. We had a few issues like the a/c and what not buy Roslin made sure to fix it ASAP. As you are on an island that isn't the richest place and they are not as efficient as our country so when the wifi isn't 100% that's not the owners fault. If you noticed there isn't some great phone company the town isn't built up and the electronics don't have the best signal as its a small populated island in the middle of the ocean. When the a/c stopped we only had to flip the breaker you can't have too many lights etc on. The people here like to conserve energy as the are a poorer country than ours. So things do not work all the time. The price is good for the Bahamas you want luxury go stay at sandals and pay 700 a night instead of 700 a week like the villas are. And for taxi and transportation no matter where you stay you can't walk to food or stores as they do not have many and the food places are private places not like here with McDonald's and Fridays etc. if you want to experience the island like a true local stay at the villas and see how the other side lives. Mingle with the people as literally everyone there is extra friendly. We saw aroslin everyday and he made it a point to knock on the store to make sure we were fine. Even a guy named Choppy came buy to ask if we needed anything and rented us a scooter even took us in town to get it. The owner of the scooter was not there and would be in an hour so he let us use his scooter until the owner Vencil arrived. You won't find that in the US. Vencil was our go to guy he has scooters and a taxi service and compared to every other taxi he had the best rates an worked with us. The house keeper was very nice an helpful as well. Getting is extra towels and it was very clean. The beach access is a short walk. If you come out the cottages and walk to the left theres a driveway on the right side of the road don't go there walk to the next driveway and cut through there down to the water that lady is nice and doesn't mind you walking between the small houses there. It was like a two or three minute walk. I recommend a scooter as its cheaper than using a taxi to go everywhere and you keep it as long as you want. There is no crime in Exuma people leaves these doors unlocked and open but let's he real if someone robbed or committed a crime where in the world would they go you can get off the island without boat or plane and you can't hide everyone knows everyone and thee I only one main road along the whole island. You have to eat at Shirley's she has excellent food! Like I said staying at the villas isn't sandals and if you wanna experience the island then live like the locals. And the wifi isn't great anywhere on the island and most places do not have a/c. There is not a phone in just one of the cottages but that wasn't an issue we shared. Vencil even stopped by to see if we needed a taxi to go anywhere. We went to Sandals for my cousins wedding an then we paid to come on te next day. It's 180 for a day pass an you can eat for free and all alcohol was free. It was cheaper to stay at the villas an pay to go to sandals everyday then it would be to stay at sandals. The villas have free wifi and Sandals charges guests 15.00 a day so lets not complain about the wifi. I had a better single in the kitchen and certain areas as the modem is in the green cottage but it wasn't that big of a deal I went to relax not check my facebook every five minutes. And as far as what I saw there isn't that many places to stay on the island for very cheap. We all enjoyed it and my boyfriend and I plan on visiting Exuma again as the more populated islands such as Nassau have a crap load of crime and robberies on Americans so Exuma is the place to walk at night and not he scared. Everywhere we went the locals asked I we needed help or info or whatever. FYI Shirley's had better food then Sandals she is a great cook. Oh very important info is that the island pretty much shuts down at 5:40 literally everything closes even the only two has station on the island and every store as for food Shirleys will be the only open after 5:40 an into the late night.

After doing quite a bit of research on Hoopers Bay Villas, and reading
some reviews we decided to take our chances and stay here as we were
looking for space, value and location. I must say that we were very
pleased with our decision!
We stayed in the Blue Marlin Cottage. It was clean and spacious. It had
everything we needed, even a George Forman grill, which was so
convenient for preparing quick dinners. Being able to use the bicycles
and kayaks was a huge savings on our limited budget. We have stayed at
other places where we rented equipment and it was very expensive.
The cottage was just across from the most gorgeous beach, with crystal
clear water all in a bay setting. During our week’s stay, we were alone
on the beach most of the time. The lounge chairs on the beach were also
a plus!
The grocery store was well stocked and just minutes away from the
cottage. It is advisable to rent a car, if you want to see the rest of
the island. We only needed the car for 2 days since most of the time we
rode the bikes and relaxed on the beach. We also took the kayaks to the
back of the cottages in the mangroves (Roslin, the care-taker helped
us). We paddled through very narrow channels where there were lots of
different fish. Too bad we did not have any fishing poles (advise to
the owners – provide fishing poles).
We had no problems with internet service. We were able to use Wi-Fi
during our entire stay. Sue, the owner also called us during the week
to check in with us.
Another highlight of our trip was the Cays Tour that we were able to
take. It was a wonderful adventure. The swimming pigs and the nurse
sharks were amazing.
This was a wonderful holiday! I would highly recommend it for families
or couples who are looking for something affordable, clean, spacious
and centrally located. We will be back!

The idea is brilliant. The cottages are well furnished, they do have everything you need for a vacation. Its close to an amazing beach, everything is so so so nice in the Exuma!!
But its very badly managed.
First, it advertises stuff that is not true.
It says it has internet. And it doesn't. We stayed for 2 weeks in high season, in the cottage that had the internet router for all the others. It did not work ONCE. And on arrrival, on the booklet it says that "the internet is not reliable, you can go to the many hotspots on the island if you need to use it, but after all you are on vacation, and who wants all the techie stuff?" Seriously, reading that made me so angry. Some people do have to fix some last minute things using the internet sometimes while on vacation. Some of us DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE. And the cottages are advertised as they have internet. So its just a lie. To sell the place, then you get there and get the message above. Really? Be real, say there is no internet so people can choose whether they want to be there or not.
We did told the guy that does the repairs (adorable guy, really) and he said he was going to try to fix it but nobody ever came. So no internet for 13 days.

What's more, the pink cottage did not have internet NOT telephone. Nowhere in the ads of the cottages it says that it's FAR from the city and you are better off renting a car a t least for a couple of days or a scooter. So we witnessed a family arriving to the pink cottage (someone mentioned that the phone did not work since october, read the other reviews), finding no way of communicating, they couldnt use the phone nor the internet so they were completly isolated. They couldnt ring for a taxi to take them eat after the long flight. They borrowed our phone when we came back but they left the day after, so dissapointed.
We saw another couple coming to the same pink cottage to find the same situation. They were dissapointed but they couldnt leave. We helped them with the phone to fix taxis so they could go into town to buy groceries. But we were not there all the time.

About the bikes. YAY we did have bikes. But they are in a decadent state. We went on a ride the second day, and noticed that a wheel was deflated. We told housekeeper and he inflated it. OK, we asked, have you patched it? He was like, i inflated it. If you need me to inflate it again, i will need to charge you 20 USD. So...basically the bike has a hole, that was there before we got there, but we would get charged if attempted to get it pumped. So, that was for the bikes for the rest of our stay.

The kayaks were good. But one of the paddles is broken, so there is only 3 good standing kayaks. There are lifevests, which is good. Beware if you come with a small baby, they do have a travel cot but i saw it on the shed with the rest of the equipment completly broken and under a bunch of mess. That shed where the equipment is, its completly messy and some of the promised equipment is in really bad shape.

The appartment itself is great. Everything you can wish for. BUT the bed in the master bedroom is the most horrible thing i have ever slept on. It squeaks like there is no tomorrow. I have travelled a lot and NEVER stayed in luxury places because i dont like them. I have slept in youth hostels all over the world, in matresses on the floor, on boats, on campings, on snow, you get the picture. and this was the WORST BY FAR! I have had trouble with my back for the whole stay, 13 days dreading the nightfall.... its not the matress, its the base of the mattress that should be changed.

BEWARE of things not working on arrival. They do not check the place before people leave, so there are a lot of issues that are not adressed until the next guests arrive and find things non functional. And maybe even you will be "charged" for breaking it (see the bike example).

Advice to the managers: Check people in and out, not just for the guest's comfort but also for you to make sure that the wonderful place you have put together doesnt get ruined slowly by being passive. The reputation will take its toll. Be real, tell people what to expect upfront (no communication for example, how far to places, some people lack mobility, think elderly, small children, pregnant...) and then they can make up their minds and find alternative solutions. If we had only been informed of the issues in advance, we would have no complaints.

And most of all, don't insinuate that we should "relax and leave the techie stuff behind" as if we were some sort of idiotic people. Its mostly due to the need of calling cabs if there is no car (they were sold out for the holidays in the whole island) or go to eat (everything is closed on the 25th and 26th of december, lots of people arriving that day)

Don't let this discourage you from coming to these cottages, they are nice, as long as the expectation setting is correct you will enjoy it. The beach is amazing and this island has proven to be the most beautiful place i have been to.

hoopersbay, Owner at Hoopers Bay Villas Exuma, responded to this review, February 2, 2013
Dear Delfinita,

Thanks for your comments and suggestions. We are pleased that you found the cottages to be well-furnished, well- equipped and close to an amazing beach.
To level set expectations (as advertised on our website), Hoopers Bay Villas are self-service cottages. There is no front desk or concierge service. However, we do have staff that will check in on you to ensure that the cottage is in order and to assist with any of your needs.
Exuma is a small pristine, out-island with no traffic lights or fast-food restaurants. When utility services are down, it is not easy to have them repaired immediately. We advertise internet because we do have internet service, unfortunately, the phone company did not come out to repair the service as quickly as we would have liked, especially since it was the holidays. We accept responsibility for this, even though it was beyond our control. We are happy to report that the internet is now up and running.
Like the internet service, our bikes and kayaks are offered to our guests, free of charge. We rely on the “honour” system and expect guests to take care of these “extras” that we provide for their enjoyment.
We welcome suggestions, as we are always looking for ways to improve our services.

First of all, I would just like to say that myself and my fiance had an excellent time in Exuma. The people, food, lifestyle, beaches were all amazing and I could go on and on about them.

As for Hoopers Bay Villas, I must say that we were pretty unhappy about a few things. First of all, we WERE traveling in the off-season (during mid-October). Many restaurants and resorts were closed for renovations, which is understandable. We booked the villa the night before and the landlord Sue was very courteous in helping us get situated once there. We were the only people staying in the cottages at the time. Although both landlords were not in the country at the time, they made sure a key was left for us in the cottage and that we had most things we need. The groundskeeper Roslin came the next morning and made sure we were ok and he was very nice. Other than that, we saw him 2 more times during a week stay.

Major Cons: Ok, so we understand that we are on vacation and that it is a getaway from the business of life. But, when we arrived there was no Wi-fi service and the phone line had been disconnected. I had been planning on using the phone service to call around town to see if places are open, etc, since calling from a US phone service is expensive. And we were not planning on spending the whole time in the cottage on the internet, but at the same time, it would have been nice to be able to let our families know that we were alive. I did luckily have my Kindle, which has worldwide 3G service, but it is extremely slow and not always reliable. The next day, Bill the landlord called us via Roslin's phone and said that he was making sure to have both services fixed the next day. There was some hope for us being able to be somewhat connected and exploring what we wanted to do next. Bottom line...we never had either services the entire stay and it was quite obvious the landlords were not wanting to pay for the service during the off-season. This truly ticked me off and was the last time we heard from them or saw Roslin (was our 2nd day there). So basically we had no way of calling a taxi and no way to email for reservations, etc. It was kind of a PITA :/

Roslin did show us the shed with all the equipment inside. The beach chairs were very handy and we ended up using the bikes to get everywhere...I would advise not to trek further than George Town on bicycle, as it can be a little tricky on the roads. The local convenience/liquor store were perfect for what we needed.

Each day, we would usually bike to the beach (Hoopers Bay was a little rough while we were there due to storm in Atlantic, but Jolly Hall was great :)), then to Augusta Bay to "borrow" their pool and eat at their nice little restaurant. We also met some very cool people there. We did an awesome excursion with Bob & Coastline Adventures and saw a lot in a short amount of time. Chat 'n Chill @ Stocking Island is a must as everyone says, and is in no way overrated. Renting a car for a couple of days was great as well. The island is so cool! And peaceful! We drove down to Williams Town and Tropic of Cancer beach which is so worth it!

In the end, I would say that the accommodation itself was perfect for a family and huge for a couple. It had all the amenities of home. The A/C in the master bedroom was awesome, while the one in the living room was off and on. The kitchen area was great...perfect for making meals...fridge, etc all worked well. The master bed itself could use some updating. It was very old and squeaky, although pretty comfortable. I would have given a better rating for the stay, but the fact that I felt we were lied to about the comms service and isolated in general left a bad taste in my mouth. It was really poor by the landlords. Even though we were just one family staying there, we should still have received quality service as they would offer in peak season. We will definitely be returning in the future, but I would never stay here again. Augusta Bay would be much more worth it for the price as I am sure other places would be too. This is truly the first time in our travels that we were unhappy with any facet of our accommodation and we have stayed in hostels/hotels/guesthouses/cottages around the world! We do not expect "hotel" service at a place like this and expected to rough it a little, but it would have been nice for them to ensure we had everything we needed...or as was described in their amenities prior to arrival.

Good luck to anyone traveling in the Exumas...you will not regret it!

Room Tip: The Green Turtle Cottage has the Wi-Fi router in it, so would be best for wireless access (if availa...

Good point for hoopers bay villas:

The cottages are very spacious and clean, there are many air conditioners that make very nice place to relax. The place is very well placed, there is the most beautiful beach in front of the cottages, which allowed bathing every morning after breakfast. Against access by the beach is well hidden so you need to know! The supermarket is 10 minutes away by foot, against George Town is accessible by car in 10 minutes. There are free bikes at the cottage, but attention back to the future guaranteed in the 70s. We say visiting island with bike us good but if you only have a week, it is better to rent a car or scooter as we did. Snorking facilities are also available for free at the cottage.

Bad points at hoopers bay villas:

When we arrived, nobody was waiting for us at the airport whereas a taxi was ordered. When we arrived at the cottage nobody was there to greet us, we had to take the pink cottage but it was not ready, not cleaned. The taxi called the manager who moved us to the yellow cottage. He is larger and was ready. Becareful there are not drinking water available in the cottage, but large water bottle are available at the supermarket. The phone was cut and the internet too. And the heater was broken so we did not have hot water for a week. For the price! $ 129 per day! But we spend à lovely vacacion; beautiful landscapes, water 30 degrees! White sand, the cays was wonderfull, great time to exumas. have a drink in tino's bar and make excursions to see the grotto thanderball with costaline adventure which are very nice.
Hope my post can help you!
