"Great Hotel on the beach"
11/25/15 SamWasTravelling Poole, United Kingdom
A really friendly hotel. Very clean and welcoming. It has a marina out the back and the rooms overlooking this are better. It is part of the Tiano beach resort and whilst the other hotels are clearly aiming at the top end of the market this one was excellent for the price paid. You are able to use all of the facilities of the sister hotels which means you can stay in a quality resort for a reasonable price. I thought the $6 return to Port Lucaya on the hotels ferry was a bit expensive especially as it is a very long way to walk around the waterways to get there.

"Don't stay here"
11/02/15 Suzanne G Mount Maunganui, New Zealand
Most of the staff are rude, abrasive and down right awful. The rooms are falling apart and smell really bad. Nothing works including the ice machines the plugs in the rooms. Nothing about this place is good.

"Old-time Florida-like hotel"
09/24/15 Eflowers2003 Port Saint Lucie, Florida
We had a great time at the Flamingo Bay Hotel & Marina. Although, my mom and I were slightly disappointed when we arrived that we seemed to have gotten the red-headed step-sister of the hotels of the Taino resorts, we soon developed a liking to our hotel. The hotel offers NOTHING fancy, so do NOT stay here if that is your goal. The rooms are dated and smell a little funky until the air gets flowing. Thank God we had fantastic weather for the week and did not spend much time in the rooms. But as basic as the rooms were, they were certainly kept clean. Pros: -SUPER friendly staff; Big Mama at the desk is very friendly and will let you know what kinds of excursions to do. -GREAT view if you get a room on the second or third floor, harbor side. There are no elevators, so be mindful of that. -EXCELLENT housekeeping, on a daily basis -GREAT deal for a fantastic location with easy beach access that is secluded. -Pool area is great; swim up bar, built in loungers, and a water slide, set the resort apart. (the pool, restaurant, and beach area are shared by Taino resort and Flamingo) -the most GORGEOUS beach I have EVER seen. I spent my life going to beaches in Abaco, Bahamas, but this blew those beaches away. No waves, or VERY little, and AMAZING snorkeling. Cons: -Bare-boned, basic rooms -Musty smell upon entering, but after the A/C runs for a little, it's nearly gone. -Decent sized kitchenette -paper-thin walls; we were in a room that could have potentially adjoined to a room where people were getting intimate, VERY loudly at all hours of the night on the first night. Thankfully, after banging on the door that would have adjoined the rooms, we didn't hear them anymore. After all was said and done, I would consider staying there again, but I do NOT require a 4 star, fancy place. We met people staying in the nicer Taino resort across the street, but they did not have maid service and that would be a deal-breaker for me. I value clean over modern amenities. If you are going, and will be spending most of your time on the beach, or in town shopping- go for it!

"Family Bahamas Trip"
09/22/15 Chad E Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Family trip to Grand Bahama in September of 2015 with wife and toddler. Cheap trip via Vacation Express. The rooms are dated (which I don't mind as long as everything works and is clean) and each room has a kitchenette which is convenient. Staff always gave the impression we were bothering them. Our phone didn't work -- they didn't replace it in the 5 days we stayed. We requested that the crib be removed -- they didn't remove in the 5 days we stayed. Amenities at Taino are good -- not 5 star but you're not paying 5 star prices. The time share presentation is ridiculous.

"If you just want to relax at the beach, this is a good option."
09/17/15 Daniel H La Nucia, Spain
Very close to Taino beach, with nice swimming pool areas. Not the best room but not the worse either. To go to we had to take a boat that took us to the other side of the "river", only cost 6 dollar both ways.

"A quiet and location"
08/27/15 Jacques A St Augustin de Desmaures, Canada
The room was nice and tidy. The only problem was the height of the bed, the mattress standind over 3 feet high, too much for small persons. Otherwise the personnel was OK. The breakfast was good but not extraordinary, but the choice was quiet large. The view on the bay was very nice. The site is much quieter than the orther hotels close by. Not many customers during our stay may explain part of the tranquility of the site.

"Last time share trip EVER"
08/10/15 Kathi B
This place is a disgrace. I can't believe how it stays in business. I guess it's the way it is in the Bahamas but I'm never coming here again. Bathrooms are old and dark. Mirrors are chipped. Sheets and towels are good, thankfully. The beach is nice with the thatched huts to stay out of the sun. We go listen to the presentation at noon. It will be interesting to see what it looks like since where we are staying is so awful.

"Nice hotel for the price"
07/28/15 Tank6300 Gulf Breeze, Florida
The Hotel is nice for the price point. Rooms are a little dated but did not spend a lot of time in it lol. It is part of the taino beach resort so you have access to the restaurant and beach. Staff was very polite as well. you also have to take a ferry from the hotel to Port Lacuya but be advised, it stops running at 11:00

"Amazing time!!"
07/22/15 clveera Maitland, Florida
We definitely had an amazing time while at the hotel and on the island! Our room was nice and it was nice to have the kitchenette. It was very nice to have the ferry for transportation, and the bonfire/dinner on the beach was nice. We were also able to have a couples massage right in our room, without having to leave or go somewhere else. More than anyone or anything, "Big Mama" (the wonderful lady who works in the lobby) made our trip so much fun. Every time we saw her or spoke with her, she had a big smile for us and she was a lot of fun to talk to. She also made all our arrangements for our travel and tours. For anything we needed, she absolutely went above & beyond to take care of us! That meant more than anything in our stay at Flamingo Bay!

"Loved it!"
07/15/15 Kzombiez Winter Haven, Florida
The staff at this hotel were very friendly didn't meet a staff member that wasn't. The rooms are more than you need along with the toaster, microwave, refrigerator, and complimentary coffee. From our room we had a beautiful view of the water. The beach was within walking distance and the pool was amazing. The pool belongs to the sister hotel across the street but this hotel has full access to it. The pool has a beautiful water slide and a bar in between. Alongside of the pool you could also play volleyball, ping pong and tennis. I would recommend this hotel and a great price.
