We got here on Feb. 12 2017. Unfortunately we arrived after dark because we took a wrong turn and got lost. Driving on the other side of the road doesn't help either. Regardless we got checked in and felt right at home. The next morning we awoken to a picturesque aqua water with white sand beach right in front of...

We stayed at the Hideaways under an inexpensive exchange through our timeshare provider. Through our research, we had appropriately minimized our expectations prior to arrival. This place is NOT Sandals, but is actually a decent middle of the road property. Our exchange put us in a unit on the hillside away from the beach, but the accommodations were fine. Nothing...

Thank you Tom for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found our location convenient to all the Island amenities. The kayaks, paddle boards, peddle boats and row boats are a great way to explore the beautiful Exuma waters around the resort. Thank you again for choosing Hideaways, we hope to see you...

While staying in the area we frequented Hideaways in the evenings to get away and relax . Friendly staff with a good choice of items to eat and a relaxing atmosphere. Two pool tables and a few TV's, hideaways has a sports bar atmosphere to it but has an outdoor feel with ocean views, definitely recommend.

Don't hesitate to book a room off the water. Our room was across the road from the main resort. It was so quiet and had a beautiful water view because of the height of the property. Everything was clean and in very good working order. Take the opportunity to immerse yourself into Great Exuma's culture.

We had a great time there. The team was really nice. My kids wanted to go fishing, so they tried to get them fishing equipment right away. Rooms are nice, right on the beach. The restaurant is OK. They seem to be always busy, so don´t expect much attention. Besides that, we had a great time there. Wifi works better...

We stayed in a condo across the street from the beach. Not a big deal at all to walk 3 minutes but be mindful of the cars as they don't always slow down. Found the resort to be what I expected for a lower priced place. A little frayed on the edges but overall perfectly enjoyable. They provide free water...

We loved our stay at the Hideaways in Exuma. With the most beautiful beach in the world about a half mile walk up the beach, and a water taxi that pulls right up to the dock and takes you anywhere you want to go for $10, what's not to adore? However, I want to share some tips that will help...

We stayed at Hideaways for 10 nights and 11 days. The resort itself was a bit more of a laid back style. Compared to other resorts that we stayed at, the cushions by the pool could use a cleaning and the beach front raked on more regular basis. Otherwise, the property itself is fairly large for this part of the...

We stayed at the hideaway from 12/22/16 through 12/27/16. It's visually appealing but service was horrible. There are no phones so u have to walk all the way to the front desk to ask a question. There are never any beach towels available(in the wash always). The air conditioner stopped working so we went three days in a stuffy villa...
