This place is just awesome, so picturesque. The people were all very friendly and willing to help. The diving was absolutely amazing, lots to see and a variety of dive sites. The food and drinks are good quality, fairly reasonably priced. I will definitely go back....awesome!

I came for good snorkeling and my mind was blown after about 10 seconds in the water. Staying on the island was great and the restaurant is affordable and good.Stayed for 7 nights and had no complaints. Staff were friendly and helpful organising a half day tour.

Like our second home. Quiet, yet only about 10 to minutes from Port Vila. Great for the kids. Awesome snorkelling right off the beach. You can walk around the island in around 20 minutes. Been here about half a dozen times over the year. Stella is like a member of our family!

Food is simple, yet terrific quality. Similar to Aussie prices. Accommodation suits all budgets and typical South Pacific Island accommodation. Clean and basic. No annoying TV's. Free Wifi is generally good and consistent. We could never fault the friendly staff. The Ni Vanuatu people a beautiful and always happy., even a little cheeky once you get to know them.

Although 10 mins from the capital city, it could be million miles away. Nothing is very far on Efate and you could circumnavigate this island in a day.

We always choose to stay in Villa 1. Its private with fantastic views over the ocean. Its located at the back of the island and is very private. It has everything you need from outdoor furniture to a full kitchen with everything you need if you choose to cook. The bathroom is lovely with a big open shower. there is a very comfortable lounge to watch the tv if you choose and then there is another lounge to sit and watch the view through the glass bifold doors that are right along the back of the vila.

Hideaway staff are just the best! We now consider them not just friends but family. Nothing is ever any trouble for them. We ate at the restaurant quite a few times and the meals were always presented well and tasted great. We love spending our days snorkelling in the marine sanctuary and I always imagine it to be like swimming in a giant aquarium full of fish, coral and things to see.

I could not recommend a stay at Hideaway island more highly. You will always be greeted with a big happy smile and lovely people who will become your friends so quickly

Room Tip: all villas are air conditioned whereas the bungalows arent

Make sure your get flippers for snorkelling and posting of letters.
Current quite strong and we are strong swimmers, and it was low tide (meant to be easier). We had to go back and get the flippers. Beach shoes also a must as it a coral beach.
It is amazing little place, clean, pristine, warm water.
Fresh fruit cocktails, delicious
