Absolutely a must visit! Room charges include breakfast, snorkel equipment hire, kayak use, glass bottom boat trip, snorkel safari and return boat transfers. Pristine snorkeling on a reef in the process of being regenerated by Newcastle Uni. This place is HEAVEN!

staff were awesome. It was the happiest place we have stayed in many years of travel. The kitchen staff sang as they prepared breakfast and it sounded as if an entire choir was serenading us. It was low season when we visited and the pwners happened to be on site. They were very welcoming and helped solve a double booking problem we had , reassured us and sorted it all out with good humour and efficiency.

Unique experience in Paradise
Pros Lovely staff. Amazing location. Free water gear "Feel-good" vibe Cons "island time" - thing takes time (food, service etc). Expensive food and beverage and you're not allowed to bring your own to the island.

Hideaway is like a home away from home to me. I have now stayed there ten times over the past thirteen years. It is one of the few holiday destinations that I find totally relaxing. Hideaway Time is my time!

10/10 Exceptional

It was amazing to be able to snorkel straight off the beach, perfectly clear water and loads of fish. The snorkel safari on a daily basis was fantastic. The meals at the restaurant were delicious. This is a perfect location to get away from everything, nice and relaxed. Not a 5 star resort, a bit worn and a rustic feel, but views from bungalows are definitely 5 star.

6/10 Good

This is a beautiful location, however the bungalows and restaurant facilities are a bit tired and need renovation. There were broken mirrors, stained tiles, cheap shower caddies. For the price, one would expect more upscale accommodations.
