Lives up to its name!

This place is truly a gem. The room and all the facilities are clean and bright. That is no wonder because the cheerful staff is constantly busy with maintenance and cleaning so that it remains in tip top condition. Our bungalow was charming, spacious and private. Amenities - a lovely tiled bathroom with an enormous tub and kitchenette with microwave, eating, serving utensils. Anything missing or needed was supplied promptly by the friendly and extremely helpful staff. They went out of their way to meet our needs. For example, our rental car had a flat tire and the owner personally stepped in to make sure the company sent someone to the Hideaways to fix it.
Our bungalow was just steps away from the beach and the Hideaways provides free kayaks and paddle boats for guests to use. They are right next door to Latitudes Restaurant that features live entertainment at night. We enjoyed New Year's Eve under the stars, dancing on the beach. Their conch fritters are the best.
For those of us who can't unplug (I teach online), there is WiFi in the rooms. I was able to sit in the adirondak chair in front of my bungalow and still use WiFi from the room. They also provided complimentary continental breakfast and had a bar and grill on the premises.
My only regret is that we didn't make it over to Pig Beach to see the swimming pigs. Next time. I will definitely return to Hideaways and recommend getting a bungalow facing the beach.
