We stayed at the Diamonds by the Sea in the one bedroom Seashell Studio the first week of Feb 2018. It its a one bedroom, with bath and screened in kitchen area. There is a great patio area for eating meals when the weather is nice, which it was during our entire stay. It is equipped with all the essentials for cooking and meal preparation.
The wi-fi was certainly appreciated since I had to keep in touch with my business. The patio area is nicely separated from the other properties so there is a private space on the patio for meals, reading and afternoon cocktails. All our other neighbours were friendly and sociable.
Gladys is an excellent host, as she would try to make the rounds of all the vacationers to see how everyone was doing, if we needed anything, or just to provide some advice on great places to eat. This was appreciated when we were determining our night out dinner experiences.
The Sandbar Beach and restaurant and bar just several hundred metres to the west of the Diamonds was great as was Cappuccinos. Great Italian food. The Sabor, located at the Pelican Bay Resort at the north end of the Lucayan Market is also excellent.
We'll be back, an excellent property and very relaxing without the horde of people and partiers.
I recommend that vacationers bring a full supply of personal toiletries and soaps.
You should consider a car as this locations is outside Freeport approximately 5 km. so if you intend to get around the island and grocery shop, a car is almost essential. We understand that Gladys will pick you up from the airport.
As others stated, the island is still recovering from a hurricane. Lots of work is still being done on the Coral Beach Hotel. They were working on it while we were there. The pool and beach access is very nice. We agreed it was one of the better condos to stay at on the island. Svetlana, Helen, and her property manager were wonderful to talk to. Everyone was very nice. Svetlana made sure I had everything I needed several days BEFORE we arrived, so our arrival went very smoothly. The condo was clean and worked perfectly for our group of 4. The elevator still does not stop on the 4th floor, but the stairs were very manageable, even for my 77 year old mother in law. She would just go down a flight and catch it on the 3rd floor. The pool area was gorgeous and the water felt amazing. Sometimes we wanted a break from the waves, and the pool hit the spot.
