AMAZING 3 NIGHT STAY!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 16, 2017
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.

All the staff at Oceanfrontier Hideaway strive to make your experience the best it can be. Having said that, we understand that the place and the pace are not for everyone and there are occasions when guest expectations are not met. We appreciate your time and effort in posting a review but would encourage you to discuss your concerns directly with management so we can offer assistance and perhaps find a satisfactory solution to the issue at hand during your stay.

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

This was probably the 6th or 7th stay here for me. Maria & Terry are wonderful. The cabins are in a great location & have everything you need. I could live there, just need those winning numbers. Nippers is right next door and just a short walk to the grocery store. I cheat & get a golf cart.

This small complex of cabins perfectly situated on the beach is very well-run by the friendly and competent Troy and Maria who assisted us to and from the dock with our luggage. Furnished adequately in rustic style, the cabin was sufficient for our needs (although 4 adults sharing one small bathroom was interesting). The noise from Nippers Bar and Restaurant was almost imperceptible in our cabin (we asked for the furthest away). Even with the weather behaving appallingly and being unable to dive (which was the purpose of our 57 hour in-transit trip to get there) or even swim off 'our' beach, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. It must be heaven on earth when the weather cooperates and swimming,diving and boating conditions are good. Because of being unable to dive or snorkel on the ocean side, I can thoroughly recommend an easy and rewarding snorkeling route in the Abacos sea- one which we did daily (sometimes twice) in all weather conditions: Stroll across to Guana Dive shop (15 min) jump off the pier if its deep enough and first check for rays who live and breed underneath that one and the neighbouring pier. Move across to a small man-made reef about 10 meters away on the ocean side of the pier (ask Troy). Surprising amounts of tropical fish live in and around there including a scorpion fish. Then strike out for the small mangrove island (its a ten minute lazy swim - with fins) and look out en-route for fish in the grasses, pansy shells, sea urchins, huge starfish, cow-fish, the odd nudibranch, schools of batfish and possibly the same friendly and curious ray who was very interested in our activities. Snorkel close to the island's rocky outcrop and look for juvenile turtles hiding in the crevices. Also venture away from the island at times to look for rocks of whatever size where there are bound to be different varieties of mainly juvenile tropical fish. At the back side of the island in high tide there was a nursery of baby barracudas swimming among the mangrove roots. Swim right around the island and then back across the bay to Guana Dive. Only about an hour in all. We took our own masks, snorkels and fins and shortie wetsuits which were a necessity we thought at 23 degrees Celsius. Much cheaper than hiring! Tip 1: Don't bother to hire a golf cart for the entire stay. We hired one for one day which was more than enough time to explore the island. Otherwise everywhere is within easy walking distance of Ocean Frontier and if you don't walk there's nothing to do anyway! Tip 2 Watch out for excessively priced food offerings from quaint rustic restaurants. $30 for apiece of fish - no salad -was more than we expected to pay. Grabbers is great for food and Nipper's Sunday pig roast was huge fun-both were relatively reasonably priced. Tip 3. On arrival at Marsh Harbour, ask your taxi driver to take you to Maxwells (the largest grocery store) and wait for you to shop for provisions. Ours charged $24 for an hour which included a stop at the liquor store. Can't wait to return to Ocean Frontier and actually dive next time!
