““WOW” were the only words out of my mouth”
It has been just over a month since returning from our 10 night stay at Tropical Hideaway. A great vacation is one that you remember for a long time and we have not stopped thinking about it since returning home.
Upon our arrival, Martin and Julie showed us around their wonderful property whilst we enjoyed their wonderful (and addictive) well known “Rum Punch”. They both commented that we were rather quiet. Well the only words I could muster were “WOW, wow, WOW” hence the title of this review! We had fairly high expectations prior to arrival having of course seen the almost too good to be true pictures and reading the many wonderful guest reviews. Even with high expectations coming in, Tropical Hideaway blew them away and those pictures are indeed the real thing! This really is a 5 star property where every attention to detail has been cared for. This was our first trip to the Caribbean where we had not stayed “all inclusive”. The provided welcome package set us up very well and the option of being able to purchase provisions onsite was incredibly convenient. Their home made fish pie is awesome.
We stayed in the Penthouse Suite and loved the outdoor living and vastness of space. We also loved the fact that during a rain shower you could still be outside enjoying everything the suite has to offer but not get wet. The Penthouse Suite comes with its own fitness room to enjoy. Though we didn’t spend any time in the room I did enjoy the convenience of using the yoga mats and blocks. These also came in handy for some impromptu yoga sessions with other guests.
Bequia is a very picturesque island and not overrun with tourists. The locals are friendly and we felt very safe. To get around we opted for taxi’s and primarily used Gunno and his wife who we would thoroughly recommend. We did walk down to Princess Margaret beach but we never attempted the walk back up. We opted to spend that time enjoying the infinity pool with a chilled beverage and save our legs…those hills are incredibly steep!
Martin and Julie have taken care of everything possible to make your stay the best it can be…and then some. Our time at Tropical Hideaway was further enhanced by the wonderful guests that we met. Often we would gather around the infinity pool and catch up on the day whilst enjoying a drink, or two! We arrived as strangers and left as friends.
I guess all I can say to summarize is…WOW!!
