Really nice beach and excellent service from the staff. The golfing is included, but be prepared for the golf cart fee mandatory by the golf course. $$. was about $95 us for two. The golf course is in great shape.
I had to ponder quite a bit before reviewing, hence the lag between my travel time and the review.There were really great things about the resort and some that were in desperate need of improvement, namely the rooms. When you walk in to the hotel, you are greeted by a modern, airy lobby, which has the negative consequence of setting the bar too high for the rooms. The beds were comfortable but that's about it. The rooms were musky, tv would work sporadically, the shower curtain had mold (or something that looked like mold) etc. etc. To make a long story short, the rooms need to be renovated. On a semi-related noted, towels were pretty hard to come by.The restaurants were good. There was always something tasty to be found. The bars were excellent and with the exception of one female bartender at the Prop Club, the bartenders were all excellent. The standout however, was the coffee shop that served great coffee, snacks, treats and ice cream.I didn't check out any of the nightly entertainment, so I won't comment on it. The only thing I will add is that it was pretty hard to find a quiet serene place in the evenings. It seemed like every bar and restaurant was playing loud music. I get that most people probably prefer this, but if you're looking for a quiet place to sit and have a drink, while listening to the waves crash, you will be hard pressed to find it. The good news is that they turned the music down at 10 PM but I was traveling with young kids, so that was way past my bedtime. LOL. On that note, the kids' pool was awesome.The staff were awesome. Our first impression was of a gentleman named Stanley, who was in charge of the baggage and went out of his way to assist us, seeing that we had the fore-mentioned young ones. Same goes for Kayleah (sorry if I misspelled that) at the front desk.All things considered, I would most likely go back there if the opportunity presented itself. If the rooms were renovated, it would be a much easier decision.
Good People, Good Food, Good Vacation. Been here 2 years in a row. Small resort but nice beach vacation. Just enough to do, and just large enough to have all the amenities. Beach, restaurants, bars, etc. all very short walks. Shopping Market directly across the street. Best Coconut Daquiri in a coconut shell I have ever had at the market!
We purchased this four (4) night all inclusive with flight from Newark. the charter plain Sungwing was waiting for us at Newark, terminal B. Bahamas was great, The service going in was great, we got glass of of sparkling wine and snack as welcome token, Coming back - no Champagne, run out of some premium liquor (thought airlines want to make money). Management: Running out of paid items will lower your profits. We traveled for my husband birthday September 26 to 29, 2016. Decided to upgrade to Diamond Club - the best decision we made. We had our own beach, padded lounge chairs, cabana beds, and personal service on the beach. NEXI was the best; Nexi and Stephan took care of us and treated us with the up most attention., the Diamond Club give you many perks: separate lounge with premium liqueurs, separate breakfast restaurant with mimosas and table services, butler service where they will offer separate (no line check in/checkout), reservation to any specialty restaurants. the hotel is older for spotless and service is great. Most important, as someone mentioned before, make sure to tip according to service; we tipped well and everyone new us and serviced us like royals. We will love to come back
Such a great resort for young families. We enjoyed the kids waterslide and pool area, beach area was great for lounging in the sun and playing in the water. Restaurants were short waits and friendly staff, decent food options and lots of good drink options. Staff was always very accommodating when it came to warming up milk for our son or giving up hot water, etc. Shallow pool area was an awesome place to meet other young families and it was right next to the pool bar.Amenities weren't super packed but we found enough to do.Surprisingly the Italian restaurant had the worst service and wasn't very warm to us having our 18 month son with us, even though every other restaurant was fantastic with us.We tipped lots and were always very patient with the buffet staff and in return they "found" us ripe bananas and strawberry yogurt cups for our son. Neighbouring private resort had a great boardwalk type area that we enjoyed strolling through. Sunwing lost our son's suitcase for 3 days but the hotel was very accommodating and the sunwing staff on the lower floor was helpful as well.We wandered across the street to the public square for entertainment and some "local" eats. The steakhouse restaurant was worth the wait.The beach side cafe was great for quick eats and drinks and a clean washroom. We never really had a server come talk to us in our beach chairs, but that didn't bother us as we didn't mind going to the cafe. All in all it was a very good resort and made our first "family" vacation a huge success.
