Nice place. Nice staff. Fixtures like shower and toilet not working well and everything a little thread-bare. Reasonable price. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to someone if they asked.

10/10 Exceptional

The staff at the Inn are amazing. Early check in since our plane was 4 hours before check in time. Housekeeping always wanting to know what was needed in the room and brought every day. One of the staff offered to take us and bring us back to a local fish fry. On site tour guide that can take you anywhere on the island for a reasonable fee. On site restaurant superb. Prices reasonable. Room spacious. Bed comfy. Air conditioning and ceiling fan kept room very comfortable. Coffee maker with coffee provided daily. Fridge and microwave as well. All rooms have beautiful view of Bell Chanel. Pool and pool deck well maintained. Ice plentiful. Quiet safe area. Market place and public beach 15 to 20 minute easy flat walk. Diving was not available at resort as advertised and apparently will be in future. However staff hooked us up with Grand Bahama scuba who came and got us and dropped us back off with no problem and a very short ride.

I guess you get what you pay for? Honestly just needed a place to rest my head for a few days while hanging out with family who live on the island. The room was a bit dirty behind the night stand. Balcony was dirty as well. Sheets and comforter on one of the beds had stains on it. Restaurant upstairs closes at 10 due to a curfew set in place, verbiage on site and online still show it’s open until 11 which can be deceiving to people staying there and don’t know about the curfew. The restaurant food for breakfast and staff were great though! Location is great, close to Port Lucaya. This won’t be my first location of choice in the future sadly.
