Recent Grand Bahama reviews

  • Beautiful three bedroom town house, fabulous location , yards from the ocean

    "The description for this listing doesn't quite match how fantastic this holiday home actually is. A home from home located within a few steps of the most beautiful beach (with a pool if you chose). Welcome was friendly; town house has all mod cons and more. Located close to a resort you have the added benefit of using the resort facilities if you wish; this being one of the reasons we chose the location (as we were holiday with our two teenage boys - and you just never know!) but apart from one bar meal were chose not to. A visit to Paradise Cove/ Deadmans Reef is a real must and the local summer cultural Goombay festival at Taino beach (Thursdays throughout July and first Thursday in August) provided us with a small insight into Bahamian food and culture, a real treat. We loved everything about it!"

  • Fabulous Place!

    "Wow. I hardly know where to even begin with this review! We loved everything about our stay at Old Bahama Bay! Our unit was perfect for our needs, super clean with perfect access to the water. We counted 47 steps from our porch to the beach! We enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking, swimming in the pool, riding bikes around the property, playing shuffleboard, relaxing in the hammock or lawn chair on the beach. Harold at the activity hut is probably the most delightful person I have ever met. So warm, enthusiastic, helpful, and simply charming in every way! We also were able to meet owners Steve and Ellen, and they too are wonderful folks. Steve and I exchanged multiple emails from the time we decided to stay here until the time we arrived, and he answered my endless questions with great patience and a sweet attitude. (Usually within minutes!). The food at the Teasers, the Tiki Bar was very good, especially the coconut french toast, though they close early during the week. The food at the marina was quite disappointing, and the service extremely slow, so bypass that choice for an early dinner at Teasers, or grill something yourself on one of the multiple grills on the property. I highly recommend renting a car so that you can see a bit of the rest of the Island. DO NOT MISS the Gold Rock beach, part of the Lucayan National Park. It is simply breathtaking, though does require a bit of a walk to get to. While this vacation was our first trip to the Bahamas, it certainly will not be our last!"

  • Nice relaxing spot

    "We had a great time staying at the Riviera Villas. The manager was very personable and helpful about where things are on the island, local events, etc. We didn't mind that we weren't on the beach because it took 3 seconds to walk there. It's closer to the quieter end of the beach, which we really liked. The condo is also very close to town. We did not rent a car since we were only there for 5 days and planned on staying in the area. It's a great walk along the beach to the Lucaya Market (also safe at night but watch out for the rising tide!) The condo itself was clean, quiet and comfortable. Wifi is available which is really nice for looking things up (although they do provide a map). The owner was very helpful as well and prompt with her email responses and following up. There are a couple of things that I would say were less than favorable. We were told we may have to buy paper products for the condo (as in TP and what-have-you). We didn't have to since there were two rolls, but I wasn't thrilled about the idea that I would have to stock the condo with essentials like that. I'm not sure if it would have even been feasible that first day - that would have been VERY inconvenient. There also wasn't any dish soap. There was a bottle under the sink of very watered down soap - someone was clearly trying to make it stretch. Again, I just feel that things like that should be provided. Great place to stay overall and would highly recommend for a beautiful relaxing vacation."

  • Fantastic Vacation!

    "This was our first time renting a condo as opposed to doing the all inclusive thing. We had a crazy cab ride to Hampton Court, and upon arriving we were a little apprehensive (mostly because we didn't know the whereabouts of the necessities such as; grocery & liquor store, market place, restaurants, and beach). But once we got our bearings, we realized that the location of the condo is perfect. A less than 10 minute walk brought you to beach and restaurants. The grocery store & liquor store (located in the same plaza) was about a 15-20 minute walk, which we did, then coming back we took the bus ($1.25 each) which was very straight forward. There was 3 of us in the condo, so the 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms worked out perfect. The condo is on the ground floor with the back door leading directly to the patio with pool. This was where we had our coffee and breakfast every morning. We used the pool almost daily, but mostly enjoyed relaxing around it with a drink after a hard day at the beach. We had a couple of small issues in the condo which Lisa promptly resolved after we contacted her via email. The kitchen is small but well equipped. The dining area has a table for 4, but we ate outside on the patio. The living room is very comfortable. There is a land line which we used a couple of times for local calls. WiFi is available as well. The condo also backs on the canal, so there is a nice dock with picnic table which we used a few times. Lisa provided an information package in advance with everything that you need to know about the condo and the area which was very helpful. We were going to rent a car to do day trip but found out that they have a 3 day minimum, so we didn't bother. You don't really need a car if you are just going to hang out at the beach or Port Lucaya. We felt very safe walking around the area, even at night after a yummy dinner in the market place. Everyone that we passed along the route to the beach / market place, be it locals or vacationers, was very friendly and always said hi to us. We hope to make it back next year!"
