All the staff was extremely friendly.

Great place to stay. Nice people, great room, free shuttle (car) service is great, breakfast at Splash is yummy, the beach is nice, there are chairs, and more…

The cottages are very cute & comfy. It was not crowded for our stay. Cindy at the front desk is extremely nice & helpful. There is a pretty beach out front and a beautiful secluded turquoise white powdery sand beach just a short walk away. The food in the restaurant is very good.

Place was great. Staff was terribly both at the front desk and in the restaurant.

Beautiful but wait staff at restaurant were not friendly or interested in serving

Exuma is amazing ! Hideaway could use some updating, the decor does not make any sense to me the owners should invest some money into it. It's a shame because it's a big piece of property, The staff makes up for the outdated look all of them are very friendly Cindy is excellent! The location is good 15 minutes from the Airport. The Hotel beach is nice and private. Walk to Jolly Beach 3 Minutes away . But do go to Coco Plum Beach 30 minutes by car. And its true LOL Internet you need to hang around the the lobby not a big deal. Overall its nice !

super nice people, great views, beautiful water in the cove...

Amazing trip! Loved the hide away! Perfect location and very friendly people! Moments away from a very beautiful beach.

Pleasing. Comfortable. My three year old did not want to come home. I would definitely go back.

There is nothing at this place & staff are just ok. Don’t waste your money staying here.

We chose a 2-bedroom apartment and it was very spacious also with a spacious outside patio protected from mosquitos by nets and a private terrace on the beach. Recommended !

Great room with a great view. Very comfortable. Don't expect room service and they didn't clean the room daily.

This hotel is overpriced, as are most on the island. But, I would recommend spending a little more money and getting a really nice hotel. I felt like I was being "nickeled and dimed" which wouldn't be so bad if the "resort" was nice. Check in isn't till 4 PM and checkout is at 11am. They don't allow for late check out and start charging you $25 for each additional hour of stay, even if they are not fully occupied. They also charge you an "activities fee" of over $50 but there is nothing to do on their beach. The water is not like the water on the rest of the island--it is murky with seaweed and unappealing. The "complimentary" breakfast is awful. The food looks and tastes like it has been sitting out for days. The villas look cute but are not very functional--can't take a hot shower, worn towels, bathroom faucet not working, tried to cool room with air conditioning but it was set at 78 degrees. Also, Hideaways is not in a great location. The closest place to walk is a half-mile away. They have a free shuttle service that takes you into Georgetown but that stops running about 5 PM and then you have to pay a cab to get anywhere. I do highly recommend going to Shirley's at the fish fry which is a half mile down the road. I do highly recommend going to Shirley's at the Fish Fry to eat which is a half mile down the road. The food is excellent and the service terrific. I don't recommend eating at Splash which is Hideaways restaurant

Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa on the beach. Steps from the beach. Very clean.

A great little place in a great location! Staff was helpful, wifi is nonexistent so if you have Verizon, get the travel pass for 10 bucks a day and you're set. Stay in a villa on the water- you are literally steps from the ocean! Walkable to a couple of good restaurants-try latitudes! Will likely come back, but with more family! Would definitely recommend!

Very nice hotel with friendly stuff. We were lucky to visit Hideways for the third time, year after year. And we will always come back with pleasure . This is our favorite spot on Bahamas. Special thanks to Anita, the sweet girl from Splash Bar.

Exuma itself is worlds away from the noise of Nassau, and the Hideaways (formerly Palm Bay) is a wonderful compliment to the quiet, peaceful and calm surroundings. It's a series of small bungalows with a couple of pools, a friendly little bar/restaurant and a spectacular view. The staff was friendly and helpful (even when we lost our rental car keys and were in a bit of a jam), and the proximity to the Fish Fry restaurants was key.

I had a wonderful experience at the Hideaways Palm Bay Resort. It was my first trip to Exuma and I was celebrating my birthday. I stayed in Villa #14 which was a one bedroom Oceanside cottage. It was great! The water was right there when I opened my door in the morning and the waves lulled me to a perfect sleep every night. The staff were super friendly and extremely helpful. Every need was taken care of. I can not comment on the food as the restaurant was closed during my stay. It was not an issue as there were several places to eat very close by. I was very happy with the cleanliness of the property and very pleased with the overall value. I would definitely recommend Hideaways to others that are looking for a budget friendly and very nice place to stay!
