The staff was very helpful and pleasant, the cabins were comfortable, well kept up and clean. Stairs to get to upper level are steep and safe for 6 yrs and up but not for young ones. Sitting watching the ocean was fabulous with a cup of coffee in the morning. The beach was not crowded and good for swimming. Several chickens and cats on the property. Kids had fun naming them. Snorkeling and diving was out of this world in the protected area nearby. Several places to eat on the island that had lots of character or more upscale. We had 3 cabins rented and it made it easy to gather and keep up with each other. My only complaint is you are near a bar and I needed ear plugs plus the air conditioning on to sleep. We woke up tp the rooster crowing in the morning.

A small group of guys went over from Thursday to Sunday. I would recommend stay through Sunday for Nippers Big Sunday Funday party but work inhibited us from enjoying it. First off I see that some reviews are bad and some are due to management BUT this is definitely NOT the case. Maria was very nice from the moment we got off the boat, drove us to the cottages and did a walk through of each cabin rented. She made sure that we had everything we needed and wanted to make sure we organized our pickup ferries right away. We hear about island time and island hospitality and we got all of it with Maria and Ocean Frontier. Cottages were perfect size in the best location, RIGHT NEXT to Nippers! Beautiful beach view. Second we rented a boat from Troy same management at Dive Guana. Troy is so knowledgeable and showed us all the spots on where to travel and showed us how to go feed the pigs on an abandoned island. No need to go to the Exumas, the Abacos has everything we needed. Thanks again for making our trip memorable. Anyone coming to the islands we are going to recommend Maria and Troy to everyone. Thank You!

You literally walk out the door, walk for 1 min and the beach is there! Beautiful! The cabin was clean, we had towels linen and some very basic things. Maria and Troy were more than friendly and did their best to accommodate us... Maria is such a sweet lady and was always trying to make sure everything was up to our expectations. Our cabin was right next to Nippers so it was very convenient!

Oceanfrontier Hideaway is located in the most perfect location as the cabins are private and located right upon the beach and next to Nippers Bar. The cottages themselves are the perfect size (other than the fact that there is one bathroom). We had a great time in Great Guana Cay and I highly recommend visiting this island. The island is very small and just a short walk where ever you need to go (grocery store, dinner, marina). But...we were all very dissatisfied with our experience with Maria (property manager). She was terrible and I do not suggest staying at this resort no matter how much I loved the view and convenience of the resort. She was extremely rude compared to anyone else on the island and charged us almost $300 extra as soon as we got off the ferry. I will definitely be back to Great Guana but I will find another hotel to stay during my next visit.

Quaint little spot in the quiet of Great Guana Cay. Small but clean units. Good response from Staff. Beautiful beach right at your door. Nipperrs, next door can get crowded on Sundays from 11:30 to 6:30. That is the time the ferry starts bringing people from other Islands and the last ferry leaves at 6:30. Best Island food is at Kidd's Cove, small local bar, Restaurant right between Grabbers and Nippers. Walking distance to everything but a Golf Cart rental makes it easier. Thursday night is Wing Night at Orchid Club and a great deal. Bring cash with you, not every place takes credit cards. If you can't relax here you can't relax anywhere
