Paradise Island Harbour Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We are an older couple who visited this location for a 5 day vacation.This property was completely renovated in 2016.The hotel is a nice place to stay. The rooms were nice but rather plain.Our room (#918), had a very nice view of the harbor.This is a shipping harbor so the view is not spectacular.I am not sure what kind of view the other side of the hotel had because there was nothing but woods on that side, as far as i could tell.The room was "average" size with all necessary amenities. The bathroom was extremely small. You cannot close the door while sitting on the toilet.There are 5 restaraunt on site; buffet, asian, italian, steak & seafood and a poolside grill.October is their slow period so they alternate which resteraunts are open each day (i understand why, but kind of a bummer).The hotel was only 25% full.The food was above average. The desserts were gourmet at all the restaraunt.We did not visit the gym, the bar, or the Junkanoo room (lounge).The Atlantis hotel is a short 10 minute walk from the Warwick. We made the walk several times. The Atlantis casino is very tight (not many winners).I dont recommend wasting your money there.The straw market is on Bay Street along with many other shops. Bay St. is the shopping area.This is also where the cruise ship docks are.When the cruises are in dock this area is very crowded.Taxis are readily available, but kinda pricey. ($15 from hotel to straw market).Or you can walk about 5 minutes from the Warwick to the water taxis over to the straw market ($8/pp).There are many excursions available for you. Do your research on them.There are several cruise ships in port every day.You will be competing with them for the excursions.We did a couple of tours (the city tour & the cultural tour) with Magestic Tours.They were late picking us up on both of them.The tour guides were very knowledgeable and kept the tours interesting. The weather was gorgeous each day.Overall, we had a great time, stayed in a nice hotel and had a relaxing vacation.
My husband and I stayed at the Warwick from October 16-19. Very nice hotel, as far as cleanliness goes. Staff were all nice and aimed to please. They were all very helpful. I didn't pay attention to the name of the girl in the gift shop, but she was so sweet and so helpful to us. :) If you're going here because you love the beach, this place is NOT for you. Very small beach.....I'm an ocean girl, myself, but their huge and wonderful pool actually won me over. It was very clean and so nice. The restaurants----What can I say....Tings wasn't open the whole time we were there. The Verandah (buffet) was open each morning for breakfast ( 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.) and one night that we were there for dinner. Their food was 'okay'. Not a whole lot of variety. My husband didn't find a lot of food that he cared for. We ate at Edgewater Grill our last night there and it was WONDERFUL! I had the grilled conch with truffle mash potatoes and for dessert I had the Bahamian guava duff. All of it was SO delicious! Chickcharnies was okay. Their burgers are delicious and so are their conch fritters. But, a few days of greasy food is about all I could handle.The Hog Bar was okay, but they weren't open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. like they advertised to be. They were closed each night when the pool closed at 6 p.m. That left ONLY the Rum Cay bar (lobby bar) open...It was open 6 p.m. until 1 a.m. Douglas, the bartender, was BY FAR the BEST bartender ever! He was super fabulous! Hats off to him! Drinks were great and strong. Loved my long island iced teas!Rooms were very clean here and the bathroom was small, but nice. We had a water view and wish we'd had a balcony room, as my husband smokes. But, when we got to the resort, we were automatically upgraded because it was our first visit. Very nice. Thank you.We walked across the street and visited different shops. It was very safe. I recommend leaving the resort to sight see. :) There is a shuttle bus that will take you to Atlantis every evening at 8 p.m. and returns at 11 p.m. You can walk through parts of Atlantis FREE OF CHARGE. If you've never been there, I recommend. We were told by another employee that you can also tour the new Baha Mar for free. We didn't venture there. You can also take a water taxi to Nassau if you'd like to go to the Straw Market. We were told it was $8 round trip. We didn't go, though.
We stayed here in August and had fun with friends. There are a few things to be aware of however. 1) this hotel is on the harbor side of Paradise Island however they will drive you over to the Cabbage beach. 2) you have to sign up early to eat at certain restaurants or to go to the beach. 3) not all the restaurants are open each night and some you need to have reservations. 4) the elevators are really messed up- in working order but with a mind of their own. 5) there is some kind of shipyard next door so if you are looking for a view- you may look for another place.
This is an all inclusive adults only hotel right on the southern shore of Paradise Island. The taxi fare from the airport is about $50 (Government regulated so don't expect a meter).We arrived early but were immediately checked in by the cheerful efftcient staff who said that although our rooms were not yet ready we could eat and drink, use the wifi and all the other facilites of the hotel whilst they stored our luggage. Having done so we were given our rooms which were water view on the 9th floor. The view was excellent and we could watch all the boats coming in and going out to sea. The room was large and had plenty of cupboard space. There was a fridge and coffee maker and bottled water. The slightly small bathroom had all the toiletries needed and an effective shower.Overall the staff were happy, pleasant and welcoming. The bar drinks were top quality and the food in the buffet and the restaurants was similarly very good.The pool is large and has plenty of loungers and umbrellas around it. The beach although not so big has plenty of room to sit on and the water is barrierred from the main waterway by shark nets but there is plenty of water to swim or lounge in.The only slight problem and it is common to a lot of all inclusives, is that both bars had seating all the way around them which made it difficult to access the bar to get a drink when the bar was busy and the seats full. Surely leaving one complete side of the bars free of chairs would allow easier access to those who do not wish to sit at the bar.If coming to the Bahamas we would definitely stay here again.
Reading all the great reviews that the Warwick has received played a major part in choosing the hotel over others. This meant we were going to go to the most expensive all inclusive hotel, by a long way, we had ever been to.On arrival we were shown to our room by Reno who explained where everything was both in the room and hotel. The room was great, pool wonderful, staff vey helpful and unfortunately for us that is where good stopped and disappointment started.The evening entertainment was very loud for such a small area in fact so loud you could not hold a reasonable conversation. Daytime entertainment (if you were interested) was of a pretty poor standard.The biggest disappointment was the meal part of the all inclusive package that was provided by the Warwick. It is the first AI hotel to have there main buffet restaurant closed more often than it was open despite there own website stating it is open for breakfast lunch and dinner daily. When it did open for lunch, providing an alternative to the grill bar (pizza, hot dog, burgers etc,) the choice provided was very poor. Generally 4/5 hot (fish dish, meat dish, rice and one or two veg.) Salad was provided with a choice of wafer thin ham or turkey. Almost forgot soup as well. dinner choices were just as poor. Only difference being a few more hot choices but you lost your cold ham and turkey.Thursday night is BBQ night and although it was very nice it was the only option on offer as ALL the restaurants were closedAs far as the themed restaurants were concerned they provided a varied set menu but unfortunately it did not vary for different days of the week when they were open. The alternatives for dinner was generally 2 restaurants open (occasionally 3 if the buffet was open) this led to its own problems. Tings on a Stick (a walk in) was in there words "swamped" by guests and they were asked to return 30 minutes later to be seated. Not what you would expect. The reason may have been the only other restaurant open required a reservation and even having a reservation did not guarantee you being seated at the reservation time.Despite having to wait at Tings it did manage to provide the worst meal we had. Starters being 2 of the tiniest spring rolls I have ever seen and the main proved no better. Satay chicken and rice. 2 skewers (1 piece per skewer) of very cold chicken (no microwave?) and a tiny bowl of satay sauce. Perhaps they were having a bad day.Generally the Italian and the Edgewater Grill (great Mahi Mahi) were small and the food ok if you like it spiced. This seems to be a common theme throughout the restaurants although to varying degrees. I can understand that guests write the comments they do and the hotel is probably ok for a few days but for an 11 night stay it fell well short of what could be reasonably expected for the cost of your vacation. It was all the more disappointing as visiting the Bahamas was a dream my wife has had had for many years.We have stayed at All Inclusive hotels in Europe, the Canary Islands and the Caribbean over the last 18 years and I am afraid to say that the Warwick was the most expensive and worst value for money we have been to. Shame.
