We spent a week on Hideaway with our 1 year old. We chose it as you can snorkel right off the beach so we wouldn't have to take whole day trips just to do a bit of snorkeling. The snorkeling is quite good, there are heaps of fish, a fair bit of coral and as a guest we were able to take the free snorkel safari and glass bottom boat tour every day!
It was perfect for us as we were looking for a quiet getaway where we could relax - lay on the beach, swim, snorkel, eat, drink & explore if we felt the urge. It is not a huge resort so it is very peaceful (even with the day trippers) and even though there is no kids club we had no problem organising one of the girls to look after our son for a few hours when needed (at around $4/hr). He was totally spoiled by all the staff with lots of cuddles, babycinos & attention!
He was actually bitten by something while we were there & even though it was nothing the staff and owners were more than helpful with advice, referrals to the chemist in town & mosquito net!
The bungalows are very spacious, very clean, secluded and very charming! The beds could use better mattresses but were comfortable enough!
It is quite close to the mainland and if you want to it is very close & easy to organise day trips around the island & into town.
I can't recommend this place enough if you are looking for a peaceful getaway - it is such a beautiful location, with great food and people!
