It was good, but not much there other than a little house underwater, the rest of the snorkelling was much more exciting.

The novelty of posting a post card under water has to be be experienced. My grandchildren were thrilled to post a card to their school friends through this amazing facility.

Great fun to post our grandies cards from the underwater post Office at Hideaway Resort. We bought the postcards at reception, and wrote on them with the pencil provided. It was high tide, so poor Poppy had to have a couple of attempts before successfully...More

Great for kids to send a postcard and get them into the water and see a few fish, but it does need a bit TLC to get back to good attraction.

Easy to get there, crystal clear water. Plenty of fish and sealife. Great learning area for the children to view and take part in the activities

If you have time to do a round of the island there are lots of little beaches and coves with clear water and beautiful fish. Hideaway is lovely and a good choice as it is not too far to travel.
