La Bougainvillea is nicely situated about a 10-minute drive south of the town of Governor's Harbour, roughly halfway between the northern and southern ends of Eleuthera. It is as private and secluded as you could want, perfect for having one of its well-made, honest cocktails while looking out at what amounts to your own personal beach. We spent five nights here, and each night we grew increasingly fond of this genuine getaway. Our room, Room 10, looked out over the infinite pool blending into the ocean. It was spacious, modern, clean and comfortable. Tom the owner was most helpful in providing information about things to do, and especially in setting us up with one of the staff members, Horatio, for a half-day private boat tour along the coast. We highly recommend that you use Horatio's services if you have any interest in getting out on the water, whether for fishing, snorkeling, or sight-seeing. You do absolutely need a car while here -- no place to walk to (except of course the beach itself). If you are inexperienced at driving on the left, you can find no easier introduction than Eleuthera. Anyway, many thanks to the congenial and interesting staff at La Bougainvillea for making our visit so much fun.

Our family came to La Bougainvillea for dinner one evening and it was pure magic. The views were stunning, the food incredible, the decor charming and the service excellent. Highly recommend this gem of a resort!

I would rate the hospitality of this place as 4* it is set in a beautiful location but could be improved with finer attention to detail. For example more care to prevent cockroaches in the bedrooms. The staff are incredibly friendly but slow and misunderstand a lot of requests so management could invest more time in training. The sand flies may not be helped but do impact the holiday and by the end we were pickled by bites which are extremely uncomfortable. In addition the food and drinks are cripplingly expensive. Overall a pleasant stay but perhaps not great value for money.

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely hotel. The owner Tom, and staff are friendly and make you feel right at home. We had an ocean front/view room which has the most breathtaking view. The on-site restaurant cooks up good food. Chef Mo is friendly and accommodating. This is a new and small boutique hotel so they are still working out the kinks. I would’ve love to see a designated smoking area. We sat at the cocktail bar for dinner one night and the guy next to us lit up a cigarette. Luckily the restaurant wasn’t busy which allowed us to move to a table further out. It would’ve also been nice if there was an actual front-desk staff to help with the luggage and check-ins. No one was at the front to welcome us upon arrival. We flagged down a maintenance staff who went to look for the manager. All in all, I would still recommend this beautiful hotel. The room price is competitive. The restaurant price is on point with nearby fine dining such as the French Leave restaurant. This place has a lot of potential and we would definitely return.

This experience started out terrible from the minute I booked this place. The
website states up to 10 people, but what it doesn’t state is that if you bring over 6 they charge you $1000 per person! Tried to cancel within 24 hours of booking and the owner declined.
Also stated on the website light house keeping 5 days per week. What it doesn’t tell you is you pay extra. You also pay for drinking water. The pots and pans were minimal, mix matched, and very poor quality. Hard to cook for 7 people. And try not to notice the ants crawling all over the kitchen. The charcoal grill provided was barely big enough to fit four burgers at a time and my husband had to get down on his knees to use it.
Went over to the bar for a drink and they were out of ice.
Went to the restaurant the first night we were there for pizza night and we were told they couldn’t feed a group our size without at least a day’s notice. It actually
took them four days to be able to organize one meal. We showed up at 7:30. as we were instructed , only to find out the kitchen ran out of propane. Almost an hour later food started coming out one item at a time. First, plain white steamed rice, followed by frozen mixed vegetables finally 30 minutes later fish that we provided.Nothing gourmet or Bahamian about it. And a bottle of wine that sells for $11 in the states (19 Crimes)
Was marked up at $70.
We went to the office to ask the manager about some close by beaches to snorkel on the Caribbean side. She (Sophia) told us that she wasn’t very familiar with the island so she would find out and text me. That never happened.
It is very obvious that the owner (Tom), a Florida real estate guy, is only trying to make money. He has a poorly managed, very over priced property and will nickel and dime you for everything he can.
There are some really cute cottages and other rental houses on the island that you can definitely get your money’s worth. Also much better restaurants. We tried a few, such as Tippy’s and Buccaneer Bar and Grill. Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.
