We stayed at Hideaway for my birthday this year and it was amazing! From the boat ride over the staff were warm and friendly, I only had to tell the bar staff my name once and they remembered it for the rest of our stay. We stayed in one of the villas and it was worth it! Waking up looking...

The Ritz it isn't, not even the Holiday Inn, but the basic accommodation is clean and comfortable and the staff, mostly locals (no blow-in backpackers, thankfully [my prejudice]), are really helpful and friendly. The little bar and restaurant offer fairly standard options, but possibly because the area doesn't have a notable cuisine, pizza, steak and fish and chips is what...

We stayed 3 nights. Suggest you coincide with the Village Walk on Tuesdays (not a "traditional" village but where the locals actually live) or the on-island dinner on Thursday night. Unless you're a die-hard watersports person you can easily do the scuba/snorkeling in a day-trip. If in Vila for more than 4 days I highly recommend a day snorkeling the...

Hi Sauladvisor, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Hideaway Island and we are glad that you got to experience both the Village Walk and also the Melanesian Feast which is catered for by the local Mummas from Mele Village, featuring the local dish of Tolouk or as the ladies call it "Mele Meat Pie"....

We stayed three nights in a beach bungalow sleeping our family of five. We would have stayed longer but they were completely booked out and we could see why! We loved the low key vibe of the island. The staff were really lovely and helpful - especially Stella! The bungalows are very spacious and airy with a traditional Vanuatu feel....

I came here with my husband and we loved the island cause of the snorkeling, but that's about it. The room was very basic which was fine but there were 100s of mosquitos in the room with no net for the bed. We asked if they had any insect coils to burn. We got bites all over us.. Therefore it...

Would definitely recommend this place if diving and/or snorkelling. I can't believe you can just step off the beach onto some of the most amazing reef! The group of dive instructors were mostly fantastic. We had some interesting experiences with the manager though and found that some tasks were too difficult to get done. Food was great and atmosphere fantastic....
