Grand Lucayan Resort

Caught a taxi ride for a price of $10 pp round trip. The ride was about 20 mins with not much scenery but the driver did give us a little tour of Freeport which was nice. The taxi drops you off at a marketplace that sells clothes and souvenirs and has some restaurants I think. The resort is across the street, head toward lighthouse point.At first we were worried because we didn’t see many people around. That’s when we learned the resort is closed but it’s open for day passes. I think that hurricane damage caused the hotel to have to close the guest rooms temporarily. Staff were pleasant in helping direct us toward where we go to buy a day pass. You get a wristband and it was $20, included access to the beach and pool, bathrooms, etc. Towel rental costs extra so it’s best to bring your own. Bar was expensive about $12 for a daiquiri. The beach was unbelievable! White powder sand and we practically had the entire beach to ourselves since the resort was closed. It was like being at a private island! The water was warm and calm. The beach was groomed clean. Snorkeling was pretty good if you go near the rocks. Not a ton to see but there are some fish! I highly recommend spending your day in Freeport at this resort for the day pass. Such a beautiful place and not busy at all! Next time I’m in Freeport I will be coming back here for sure.
Was in Freeport as part of a cruise. The port area has some nice bars, free wi fi if you buy a drink. We took a taxi to Grand lucayan shopping and resort area, the shopping is still there, but no resort or Beach access. You have to go to the light house to gain Beach access for 20 a person. The area is still suffering from last years hurricane. Not a bad place but needs work.
We had a HORRIBLE experience. We were traveling with my 11 month old son. Upon check-in we noticed the lobby was hot, but we figured that's the way they kept it since it's open. We get to our room and it was hot so we figured the a/c was off. We turned it down and decided to head to the pool to cool off in the meantime. By the time we got back, it was still hot and seemed it wasn't working. I called the operator and they quickly apologized that the a/c wasn't working and said engineering was working on it. My son woke up drenched in sweat after a nap and when I called again the night manager, Kevin spoke to me to just tell me the same thing the lady told me and offered me a fan. We had to leave the room because it was extremely hot. We found out from someone that the a/c hadn't been working for a while!!! After everyone made it seem like it had just stopped working and it would be fixed soon. I was even called before I arrived and they left me a voicemail saying everything was fine and the hotel hadn't been impacted by the hurricane. I was livid to think that they would know I was coming with an infant and just to take our money they would allow us to still come in. They knew at the front desk when we were checking in and didn't even bother to mention anything to us. We had to check out that same night. When we checked out it went so smoothly because they knew it was wrong of them. The manager didn't even bother to show his face to apologize or anything. I heard good things about this hotel but I was so disappointed and I refuse to go back or ever recommend this place to anyone. This was supposed to be a relaxing vacation for my family and I and it turned out to be a nightmare and a waste of our first day trying to figure out what other hotel we can stay in. It was ridiculousIt was a HORRIBLE first and last experience. I am more upset that they allowed me to check in with an infant knowing the a/c wasn't working and didn't even warn us when we checked in. The manager didn't even bother to show his face after we called to complain and decided to check out knowing the a/c issue was going on for a while and wasn't going to be fixed anytime soon. They had no sympathy or consideration for my 11 month old son.
I visited Grand Bahama in April/May and July/August this year with work and was lucky enough to stay at Lighthouse Pointe for a total of about 5 weeks. I stayed all inclusive on both occasions and, yes, the buffet food at lunch and dinner did get a bit repetitive on occasion, but overall I was very happy with the quality of the food on offer. I broke up my stays with the odd meal out at Port Lucaya. Breakfast at Lighthouse Pointe is particularly good and everything was always replenished and very fresh. It did get very busy at weekends and obtaining coffee and a clean mug was a bit of a battle on occasion, but that was to be expected! I also really enjoyed the food from Waves - I miss those cheeseburgers!The rooms I stayed in were nice on the whole, although the cleanliness of the room on my last stay was an issue, with bins not being emptied and towels not being replaced, etc. The housekeeper also failed to leave bottles of water and additional toiletries on numerous occasions and I did have to call housekeeping a few times to get this rectified. The air conditioning was in perfect working condition at all times and the rooms were always nice and cool. The beds are also very very comfy and I slept so well while I was there. I loved being able to sit out on the balcony with a glass of wine and a book.The majority of restaurant staff I came into contact with were nice (and during my longest stay, they remembered my drink order without me having to ask), although the odd one did come across like being asked to get coffee, etc, was a nuisance. A few of the bar staff were also surly and seemed inconvenienced by being asked to serve drinks. The nicest staff are the lovely ladies who bring food and drinks to the loungers by the pool - Lilian in particular is a joy! Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Lighthouse Pointe. The pool is lovely, the beach is perfect for an after-dinner stroll and the sea is just so clear and warm. I'll definitely be back at some point, whether with work or with my husband for a holiday!
Our group of 8 took a van over to this formerly great hotel property which appears to tbe closed now, but they have pool/beach day passes which was excellent. Gorgeous property, beautiful beach and pool, nice bar and very good food.Best way to kill the day on Freeport.
