We stayed at oceanside cottage #10, the Windmill Palm, and it was perfect. It was nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. We were literally 10 steps from the beach, which had decent snorkeling around the 3 "Goat Islands". We were 50 steps from the pool and 75 steps from the restaurant. It was ideal for us. We didn't even bother with a/c since the ocean breezes were so close. The location is excellent, pretty much in the middle of the island, 7 miles from the airport, and the resort provides a free shuttle to George Town.
The staff is friendly and helpful. Definitely try the house cocktail, called a "Splash" in between the pina coladas and Bahama Mamas at the restaurant. "Splash" was created by one of the waitresses, the charming one who channels Betty Boop. Definitely plan and allocate for the all day tour with 4Cs--they'll pick you up at Hideaways and give you a fantastic overview of the stunning Cays up North--the highlight is a short snorkel in Thunderball Grotto, which is not to be missed.
