Where to start, we've been coming here for better than 40 years. After Dorian, we feared the place just would not back it back! The Island of Elbow Cay was decimated in the storm of Sept 1, 2019. My husband return that Oct to start repairs to our cottage and Tom, manager of the Abaco Inn quickly offered him ice to help along. What a blessing . We arrived this year, 2021 and found the beautiful Abaco Inn and Restaurant up and running , beautiful as ever. The Staff , the friendliest , the food , outstanding and Ofcourse there's Tom, who always in the best of moods and welcomed as old friends . If you get the opportunity you should not miss this Bahama Island favorite .

I visited in late March / Early April 2021 with my wife. We stayed in an oceanfront bungalow room and really enjoyed the whole stay. On our day of arrival we had trouble because our boat ran a ground and we contacted Tom, the manager, via VHF for help. He was very helpful and we ended up having a friendly local save us and give us a boat ride to the inn. Next we needed to get to the main town for our 5-day covid test and Tom lent us his personal golf cart so we could drive there. He also sent one of the staff, Jack (a super helpful guy), to show us how to get there. Upon return we checked into our room and were very pleased. these bungalow rooms are very cool and have amazing views of the Atlantic ocean and sea of abaco. They have been fixed-up since the hurricane and are not luxurious but are very comfortable and have nice furniture that is in good shape. The A/C is very good if you need it, or you can leave your doorwall open for sea air. The bathroom again was nice but not luxurious - no marble here, but everything worked right and was clean. There are not TVs or WIFI in the rooms. There are room safes which we used for our wallets, cash, and passports, but otherwise we didn't worry about locking our room. There just aren't many people around. The main facility of the Inn is a small building with only a few rooms. There is one TV in the main lounge and wifi that has a radius of about 50 feet. I was ok with this, as I didn't come to abaco to watch tv and be on my phone all day, but I was able to go check email, etc when I wanted to. All of the staff was very friendly. If you want to eat in the restaurants you just sit down and they will generally greet you within a couple minutes. So... not super fast but not slow either - just laid-back. The bartender Daphne was nice and very talented. We enjoyed all the food here, and had most of our meals on site. They are still rebuilding but the main grounds are largely done, with some of the bay villas still getting completed. I would guess that by fall 2021 the entire property should be back to 100%. I recommend renting either bikes or a golf cart. Nothing on the island is very far. Tom will help out with whatever you need. There is a trip advisor question below about scuba diving - there are only two diver operators still in business, on Green Turtle Cay and Great Guana, so you need to get there if you want to dive. You can snorkel almost anywhere but I would probably pay to be tajen to a nice spot if you want to see a lot of turtles, rays, fish, etc.

I was fortunate to have eaten at the Abaco Inn within a day or two of them reopening after hurricane Dorian. The staff was clearly eager to be back at work and the food was excellent! Crews were crawling all over the property getting everything back in order and I have no doubt things will be back to normal soon. If you’re considering a visit in the near future don’t hesitate! The Bahamas need the tourism to return and sense of normalcy. If you find yourself there for breakfast don’t miss the eggs Benedict with lobster and top it off with the best Bloody Mary you’ve ever tasted!

As I write this we are still sitting on the little patio of our bungalow overlooking the Atlantic waves on one side and the calm waters of the bay on the other side. We are here for friends' wedding, which took place yesterday right on the sand down the road a bit. Then everyone came back to the Abaco Inn for reception and dinner. We are in the restaurant business and know how tricky it can be to get food out to large groups and keep the quality high. The food here last night was amazing. Skirt Steak cooked to medium-rare perfection and served hot. Delicious moist fish. Excellent coconut rice. The staff are friendly, relaxed and engaged while being totally professional. The bar offers everything you'd want at a tropical watering hole - our bartender Maiyo made us one of his secret special "Abaco Smile" cocktails and let me tell you it packed some punch while tasting like nectar. If you're into hot sauce like we are, be sure to get a bottle of "Fruity Fredie's" goat pepper sauce in the little shop; it packs amazing taste and heat, and a number of friends in the wedding party were asking to try some. The wifi was free, always-on, and fast throughout the resort. Candice and Tom, the proprietors are always here making sure things run smoothly and always ready with helpful tips and arranged van trips to town or wherever else you need to go on Elbow Cay. Overall we were amazed and impressed with this fantastic place. Rustic beach luxury at its best.
