Having heard mixed reviews of the hotel rooms at the resort I was pleasantly surprised on our visit to Abaco Beach Resort! We stayed in a two bedroom villa which was very nicely decorated and furnished. Housekeeping was more than attentive with making the beds, tidying up, and turn down service. The restaurant has good food and the prices are...

Having done just that......we tagged four extra nights onto a bare-boat charter with the Moorings and just wanted a clean bed, some sun and somewhere to chill! But Abacos Beach Resort was sooooo much more than that, our room was large, airy and perfectly clean and though not especially 'swish' it certainly wasn't tired. We spent a lot of time...

My wife and I had to spend the night in Marsh Harbour to make a 7 am flight after a wonderful week in Hope Town. We were disappointed in the options in Marsh Harbour. For what we paid for the night, this place should have been gorgeous, unfortunately we had a shower/ tub that wouldn't drain, an A/C that rattled...

just read the "real" reviews below. Good help must be impossible to find in Marsh Harbour. If your boat runs out of gas, you can get food (eventually) and a warm bed, but that's about all this place is good for.

The Abaco Beach Resort and Boat Harbour Marina is not Atlantis (which is not the Bahamas anyway, in my opinion), but it is the quality we enjoy in the U.S. without losing the Bahamas feel. I've been coming here for years and have stayed in the villas, the rooms and on a boat in their nearly 200 slip marina. The...

First time visitor to Marsh Harbour and used this hotel prior to picking up a Yacht charter. Its ok but nothing special. Very quiet when we were there and its focus seems to be on hosting fishing groups. Rooms are large and motel like and we ate at the bar a couple of time which is fine for snacks. In...

The hotel has a run-down feel to it. Decor and plumbing looking old - both sinks in our room leaked. Service is average and staff not particularly friendly. Card system for beach towels exemplifies their lack of customent focus. Food was OK but expensive. Overall a 3 star experience with 5 star prices.

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Abaco Beach Resort in the Bahamas. It was absolute paradise. Everyone was so friendly and the Goombay Smashes were crazy great!
