“Beautiful & Quiet Island”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

My husband & I spent 2 days at Palm Bay after 5 days on a friend's catamaran.
We stayed in Villa #17. It was very spacious, clean & the shower was amazing!
The pool area was great and Splash, the restaurant, had amazing food, and the bartender, Anita, was truly a delight to be around. We will definitely return.

We had never been to the Bahamas, but had a wonderful experience at Hideaway Palm Bay. The staff could not have been more hospitable. The room was a one bedroom (#24) with a queen sofa bed, which worked well for my two teenage kids. The main bedroom was separate from the living room/sofa bed area and we had a full kitchen. Two bathrooms helped with four people. The staff bent over backwards to be helpful, they really did. Service was exceptional, warm and friendly. The food at Splash needs work...the pizza is their best effort. We would definitely return. We were lucky to have great neighbors next door who gave us guidance on where to go and what to do. when new folks took over their spot, we passed on the info as well as left over goodies from our fridge! The local Exuma Market is where you can shop for basics, beware its not cheap. The Fish Fry restaurants down the road offer a variety of dishes. We found Shirley's to be the best. Go for the garlic grouper. We rented a car for a couple of days from Thompson's just across the street and toured around the island as needed. Tropical Breeze Bar and Grill just before Williamstown (south of Georgetown) offers great value and is well done. Santana's is also delicious. Coastline Tours with Bob Smith is the best boat service to see the swimming pigs and Iguanas. Minn's in Georgetown is where we rented a boat to explore and snorkel the harbor. Overall, a great experience.

My wife and I recently returned from our first trip to Exuma. We have travelled extensively throughout the Bahamas ,but never to Exuma. The accommodations at Palm Bay were very comfortable. We stayed in unit #25, a one bedroom villa near the small pool. Staff was very friendly and did their best to help with our stay. first morning , I forgot to take the breakfast chits down to "Splash" where breakfast was served-Anita, our server, immediately took care of it. thereby saving me a walk back to the room. There was a mix-up with a taxi driver who was supposed to take us and three other couples to Coco plum beach for the day-Latovia hopped on the phone and instantly got us another driver who was getting his vehicle serviced, in a very comfortable Lincoln Navigator! We rented a car for two days and toured the island, everyone was friendly and helpful (had to stop and ask for directions several times) We stopped at Santanas in Williams Town for lunch ,but they were very busy so we backtracked about a mile to a new fish stand that had opened in January, our meal was excellent. We split a grilled lobster tail that was too large for us to finish, and the diver who caught it was having a drink there so I asked him how long ago did he catch them. My lobster had been caught two hours ago. The chef at this little stand had just graduated from the Cordon Blue culinary institute in Miami. We did the tour with Coastline adventures, Captain Bob Smith, highly recommended. All in all a wonderful trip.

Room Tip: We liked the rooms around the small pool, kind of like a small community, got to know all our neighb...

I have never stayed at the same place this many times.
When I was planning a spring break trip, there wasn't any discussion as everyone wanted to go back to Exuma (duh), but the clear choice of accommodations was Palm Bay, again!
There were 8 of us, my wife & I, our son and his wife, our college daughter & her boyfriend and our high school daughter and her friend. Trying to arrange a trip for this group was surprisingly easy: A couple of different villas at Palm Bay, a couple of boats from Minn's, MANY trips to the grocery store and we're done.
Palm Bay has lots of room to move around, great selection at Splash, kayaks, shuttle into town, calm water, boat mooring, etc. that you won't be disappointed with this choice.
There are choices on Exuma as I have looked at them all! Having stayed at Palm Bay 5 times AND have already booked SIXTH stay, should tell you something.
Keep in mind: Not all the villas belong to the 'association' and use of the amenities is nOT allowed. PLEASE make sure you book with one that is so you have use of shuttle, wifi, pool, room charging privilages, use of kayaks and pool toys, etc..
BTW: Staff was FANTASTIC.

Room Tip: It's an island and you will want to see the water, pay the few extra dollars and get a room with...

This was our second time in three years. 1st of wife and I beach front. this time with kids in a two bedroom across the street with incredible sunrises and plenty of room. The condo was much better equipped than beach front upon prior stay. Check in and out was no problem. Used kayaks, hobie cat and pool several times. Moored boat from Minns in front, walked t Jolly Hall. After driving from end of the island to the end of little Exuma, you really cant beat the location! Kids loved it. Great value for the money! I would recommend especially for families. I hope we can make it back and would stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Palm Bay. The location was perfect. The rooms are nice but a little dated. The beds were very comfortable. Excellent staff on hand who were always helpful.& friendly. Loved being greeted by Far Cat every day!

9 days of total relaxation and not to hurry. Highly recommend for peaceful get-away. Beautiful waters, beaches and people. Splash menu greatly improved--loved the Philly- cheese hoagie and veggie pizza. Can't wait till 2015 for a repeat.

Room Tip: love our waterfront room
