Awsome island. Love it here. Not fancy but paradise. Owners work hard and this is best location to do the whole island. Shuttle service is a nice touch and staff are friendly. Second stay here and would do it again

We were hoping for a fantastic stay as we had heard nothing but great things about Hideaways. Traveled as a family of 6 occupying 2 two bedroom units. Of course we were put on Hillside as our travel club only offers this, one of our units was very musty smelling and after much discussion with staff was moved to Ocean...

We were hoping for a fantastic honeymoon but instead it was terrible. I'm not even sure where to start . . .We requested a cottage on the Ocean instead told that none were available (even though the place was completely dead). We got great emails prior to our stay so we thought the staff would be very helpful . ....

I booked through a Getaway program from Interval International for $89 a night and then upgraded to a cottage #14 for another $413 (shoulder season prices). After the hurricane they informed us they weren't going to open until November 1st because of the setback. We were booked starting October 29th but after a few emails back and forth they were...

The food here is completely horrible. Plan on not eating very well while on this entire island... Even the meat eaters I went with weren't too fond of the options you have. It mostly bothered me because of how much everything cost for the price. I knwo island prices are much higher, but coupled with the staff that couldnt give...

Just left Exuma yesterday after a 4 night stay at Hideaway. It's been said before and I'll say it again, it isn't the Four seasons. The cons of the hotel are ... well aside from the the high hot tub, slightly uncomfortable bed, super spotty WIFI and outdated pool well there weren't really any. The pros are gracious, accommodating, genuinely...

We visit the exumas in May 2016. What a great place.once you land and get off the plane, you feel like you just went back in time. Everyone is just taking it easy going at a slow pace. Everything is so much relaxed. The island is a hidden treasure and once you visit you will return. My wife and I...

We absolutely fell in love with Exuma and the out islands, searching for the "real" Bahamas. Found it, check. I highly recommend this choice of out islands. So many accommodations to choose from. Long story short, we wound up at Hideaways. Overall made the best of it but will not go back next time. Staff is A+ and deserve praise...

Everyone was very helpful, esp Rod, the on sight do everything guy. He gave us good info about the beaches and restaurants. The restaurant was closed but Latitudes and Augusta Bay were right next door. I'm sure the place would be wonderful during the season. This is not Sandals, so expectations matter. If you make your own vacation and don't...

We are seasoned travelers and love to experience the local feel of a destination rather than an all inclusive resort that looks the same regardless of where you are. Having said that we do expect a certain level of service and amenities when we travel. Hideways had delightful staff ( not including the pompous owners ) but the facility was...
