And very often, they will anticipate your desires and have everything ready for you. A good example is the check-in. The taxi we...

My wife and I recently returned from a marvelous week at Small Hope Bay Lodge. I've tried to explain to friends what is so special about it, but I don't know how to do it justice. Beautiful, non-crowded beaches; great lunches and dinners served on a patio overlooking the water; evening gatherings for drinks and conch fritters;gorgeous sunrises; open bar;...

Thanks very much for that wonderful review. I think you described Small Hope perfectly. No TVs, clocks, or phones in the cabins really allow our guests to truly disconnect - a phenomenon that is increasingly rare! Add that to beach front cabins, great food, a beautiful natural setting, and wonderful atmosphere, and voila! I am so happy you had a...

Thank you so much for the kind review! I am so happy your stay with us was so enjoyable. We try to offer as much activity (or inactivity) as you can want for a Bahamas vacation. And the family-style atmosphere is something we are very proud of. Please come back soon for more of the same!

My stay at Small Hope Bay Lodge was nothing short of superb. The idyllic setting is perfect for both adventure and relaxation, beautifully appointed between two beaches. From snorkeling and kayaking to arts and crafts (painting!) I truly enjoyed my time with the SHBL crew.

This place is just amazing, you totally relax. The cabins are basic, but that is the charm of the place, and they are as described on the website. The beaches are beautiful, and you can kayak, hobie cat etc. This is basically a diving / fishing lodge, so most people are like minded, and so get on very well. The...
