Had a terrific stay. Cabin accommodation was basic but comfortable - and so close to the beach! Hideaway staff went out of their way to be helpful when our arrival-ferry's plans changed.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The overall running if this property is very poor , facilities are dirty unkempt worse than a really bad caravan park not a resort at all The sanitation treatment is very bad bathrooms well below average standard , putride smell coming from drains , lawn watering during the evening stinks as well Don’t expect to be able to prepare much for meals as they do not supply anything but plates bowls coffee cup knife and fork Mini microwave and burnt surface electric frypan and kettle I’m guessing they want you to eat at their pricey and dirty restaurant with below average food I forgot to mention the 7:00am backpacker maintenance guys who are scraping sand and lifting cement pavers outside your cabin, and the huge farm tractor moving gigantic water tanks across the beach

Perfect holiday
We had an amazing time right from leaving Rosslyn bay via Keppel connection to being greeted on the sandy beach of Great Kepple Island. We stayed at Hideaway beach resort which we found .very relaxing. Staff were all very friendly easy to approach. Restaurant had beautiful meals service was fast and cocktails were great. Happy hour each day was met with friendly efficient staff with great recommendations. We all had a fun relaxing time. No TV's we communicated with each other also fellow holidaymakers everyone was very friendly. Beautiful beach resort with many different style accommodations. Totally recommend and will definitely be going back within next 3 months. Extra activities were available we did try our hand at snorkeling got to swim with turtles. 100% recommend Keppel Connection and Hideaway Resort.
