Best remote getaway in the Bahamas

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.

You have to go to check out Exuma Water Sports' swimming pigs. Justin is a decent chap and the trip is well worth the nominal $150 fee.

Lovely Birthday Getaway

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!

Hideaways has several cottages and villas that include full kitchens or kitchenettes. I would recommend bringing a few snacks with you and having breakfast inside and saving your dollars for a nice dinner out.

Beautiful seclusion

Hideaways Exuma is a wonderful place to leave the world behind, to relax and enjoy the beauty of the sand and sea. The bungalow accommodations are perfectly located - on the beach and close to town. The staff is outstanding, helpful and overly polite. What a welcome change from your typical hotel. The owners were very informative and extremely friendly. We had the place practically to ourselves, which was wonderful, but heard that it is hopping during the busy season. We prefer the peace and quiet. We will definitely return to our "almost" private island.

Expensive Family Getaway

Was moved to a room with queen, not king bed. Size of room was good. location bad. Outside patio needed repaired, all other cabins looked renovated from outside. Shrubs and trees brushed on cabin all night, sounds like someone breaking in. Beach dirty, scary location on street and people walking the street. Afraid to walk down the road. All "complimentary features" COST. Breakfast cost not posted. $5 breakfast cost me $23. No one smiles.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Don't eat at the hotel unless you find out what it is going to cost in advance. And you wait on yourself for coffee, etc. and they still add 15% on check. Juice is not fresh, but from a bar pump.

Lovely spot on Exuma

Perfect alternative to the overpriced isolated resorts. Here you get a real feel of the Bahamian hospitality. Fabulous staff who went out of their way to give us suggestions of what to do, where to go and where to eat. They were super friendly and we felt well taken care of. The front desk even went as far as getting stamps for us and posting our postcards. Good value for money. Loved the complimentary kayaks and private beach area. We would highly recommend this resort. The 4 C's adventure day trip to the cays, organised by the hotel, is also highly recommended.

Fun place to stay.

Atlantis was definitely a tourist mecca. The waterslides and pools were a lot of fun. There are a lot of restaurants and things to do there. Just be careful about hidden charges. We got charged $2 just for making a local call and $5 for dialing a 1800 number. They will charge you for every little thing. Staff weren't very friendly either.

Great relaxation

We visit the Bahmas often This hotel looked modest. The rooms were very ABOVE average. All anemities that you could need. We even upgraded to be on the beach for a small price. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They had a boat trip through Robert's Adventues and it was FANTASTIC! Highly recommended. The price we thought was high but in the end well worth every penney. The only thing were dissapointed in was the lack of " native island" food. Otherwise...go there!
