Visited in late August. The resort as such is very nice with large rooms and great views and the beach is nice! However, there are two things that drags down the overall experience. 1. Lack of good food. There are two restaurants, one beach and one indoor, serving the same food. Menu leaves you with wishing for more. There is...

I checked in, and while my luggage was being delivered to my room, unlocked the door and stepped into my beautiful room for the next 4 nights. It was spotless, and tastefully decorated with a huge bathroom, kitchenette, and washer/ dryer. It had a large balcony that had comfortable seating as well. Beautiful manicured grounds and lovely pool and beach...

We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your vacation at Old Bahama Bay and your diving with Stuart Cove. Very good tip about stopping at the grocery store on your way from the airport as all rooms have either a kitchenette or full kitchen. We certainly do hope you will stay with us again.

We arrived by our boat on Fri 8/30 and stayed 3 nights. Getting in the marina and clearing customs was a breeze. All the dock attendants were nice and helpful. The beach was perfect, secluded and shallow enough for little ones. Paddleboards and the kayaks that were included for guest use were in good condition. The tiki bar & restaurant...

My family just returned from our stay at Old Bahama Bay over the Labor Day weekend. We had a wonderful time--the hotel was beautiful with a fantastic location right on the beach and welcoming staff!

Beautiful resort. Cute litle beach. Not much choice of restaurants and the menu very limited. I also think that the resort was understaffed and their evening entertainment very wick. I will recomended for a sort stay, say two or tree days otherwise if you are not a fisherman it can be TOO relaxing.

Thank you for your recent visit to Old Bahama Bay. We do strive to provide tranquil and relaxing getaways, so you are correct, we do not offer entertainment each night. We do, however, have a wide array of daytime activities – paddleboards, kayaks, sailing, snorkeling, fishing, massages, and so much more. We hope you will be able to take advantage...

To those who are unfamiliar with the type of resort this is, you will soon learn that this is no ordinary resort. Here families, groups of friends, and both combined share the days fishing and the nights reaping the rewards. The beach is absolutely beautiful as is the staff with their eagerness to share the beauty of the Bahamas. The...

Terrific location only made better by the friendly boaters we cooked out with every evening near our boat slip. The 2 bedroom suite we had booked thru Travelocity was only honored for the first two nights due to some computer error overbooking. Be sure to carry all of your provisions including wine, spirits, charcoal and a hose for your boat...

Perfect location to get to by boat. Well maintained property. Excellent customer service. Beautiful scenery. Great beach bar and restaurant. We loved the use of the paddleboards, kayaks, snorkeling all just right there on the beach. And the pool is beautiful in a great location near the beach. Just perfect!
