My wife and I just returned from a weeklong stay at Runaway Hill Resort located on Harbour Island, Bahamas. We prefer the Out Islands in the Bahamas, and have traveled to many of the different islands such as Long Island, Exuma and Green Turtle. As with all the Out Islands we have visited, the people of Harbour Island were great...

Reading the other reviews, this feels like gilding the lily but..... the Runaway Hill is truly fabulous. An amazing location (if you can get the Alice Emily do!) for sure and Luc's cooking is of the highest quality. Jennifer Messier was hosting us for our week and she does everything to cultivate a social atmosphere better than anywhere we have...

Runaway Hill is simply gorgeous and a fantastic place to relax and unwind. The rooms are very nicely decorated (we stayed in a courtyard room for one night and a villa the rest of our stay). The views, the ocean breeze, the food, the staff and the location make this in my opinion the best place to stay on Harbour...

This resort is owned by Hall of Fame hockey player Mark Messier. His brother runs it and does a great job of making guests comfortable. Chef Luc, in my opinion, presents the best meals on the island and that includes Rock House. Location is superb - always a breeze which cannot be said of the other side of the island....

1st of all, THANK YOU to all the previous detailed reviews of Runaway Hill by other tripadvisor contributors. It's why we booked 5 nights for this March. We just returned from a stay in room 9, the Douglas Paul, an ocean-view villa. After enjoying our brief vacation at Runaway, I can't imagine staying anywhere else on Harbour Island. It's luxurious...

I recommend reading all the reviews in here, most will say the same: go there! However, I want to give another point of view. - the beach is incredible, and you will get it in ANY hotel since the beach is public and all hotels share the same beach. - the beach is empty! I mean, late January, almost no...

We wanted three day getaway and it was perfect in every way. A few stairs away from the best beach in the Carribean, the genial and considerate Jen who looked after everything, Great staff and food. Have stayed at a few nice places in Caribbean/LA but this felt like home.

One word can describe this quaint resort; "awesome!" Traveled with two other ladies and I cannot express the hospitality that all the staff offered us. The grounds are wonderful; the pink sand beach accompanied by the turquoise water is at your door step, WOW! The food was fabulous; the Chef, Luc is marvelous.

This was our first time in Harbour Island. We have friends who had gone last year and loved it. I started my research as I always do on tripadvisor.

Spent a relaxing week at Runaway Hill and we enjoyed tiny Harbour Island. Our room had a beautiful ocean view and the grounds of the hotel are colorfully manicured. Pink Sands Beach lived up to its lofty expectations. A highlight is viewing the guy who brings the horses on the beach each day. It's quite a photo opp. The ocean...
