The accommodating and friendly staff is the best part! Also the face that it's a relatively small property with it's in private beach makes it my favorite place to stay in Nassau! I've stayed there 6 times. During my next trip, I will be touring condominiums to purchase. I love Nassau!😊

Customer service was horrible. The hotel did not provide the room type we selected and paid for six months in advance, and was unwilling to accommodate us to our satisfaction.

So the day we checked in we were a little disappointed. The room looked nothing like the pics. The grandeur didn’t match up but slowly we got used to it. The private beach is a huge plus. I wasn’t a huge fan that every time I looked out my window I saw wall then cruise ships. The staff though. AMAZING!!! Now that I know what to expect I would definitely go back.

They charged me $110.64 extra at the end as a Energy Surcharge saying its part of the Resort Fee the customers have to pay daily. So they will not let you know about this hidden fee. And breakfast is $30 or more per person. So they try to rip you off

It was a beautiful hotel. The restaurants in there are remotely expensive. But they have to make money.

I like that this property is in the ❤️ of downtown, straw Mkt, Fish Fry, etc. My view allowed me to view the ships coming and going. The staff is friendly and room service is completely ok when we chose no service. The only downside was the 1/4 layer of dust on the bathroom sconces 😳 and not electrical outlets work in the room, #681. Is stay again !!
