Having stayed at a local all-inclusive resort on a previous trip, I knew that was not the kind of experience I wanted on this occasion. We were three generations coming together from across Canada and we were looking for a more cozy, family friendly setting.
From the moment we landed. our experience in Nassau was amazing!
We were greeted at the airport by the Property Manager, Sherry who immediately took us under her wing!
My son-in-law, who had been elected as our driver for the week, was understandably anxious about his first experience driving on the "wrong side" of the road, but Sherry was wonderful. She suggested that we initially go to the grocery store so that we had that out of the way. She coached Dave briefly on what he should expect and had him follow her. It was the perfect way to ease him in.
The townhouse was exactly as all the previous reviewers have described. When I say that this was our home away from home, I mean to suggest that we immediately felt at home here. None of us actually lives in a home like this! We could not have asked for a more perfect arrangement for our family!
Sherry continued to assist us throughout our visit with our questions and any arrangements that we wished to make. How lucky the owners are to have such wonderful people manage their property!
We had excursions of some sort most days but really enjoyed our down time "at home": barbecuing on the patio, playing cards on the large dining room table or spending some memorable family moments up at the clubhouse playing pool.
For the most part, we found that buying groceries was more expensive than eating out...at the right places! The Fish Fry, Bahama Grill and Checkers provided such large servings that we were able to have leftovers at home.
My elderly father and I managed well using the number 10 bus the day the kids were at Atlantis. While I doubt that our experience was the norm, our bus driver drove us right up to the gates of Balmoral.
This island and this property are a breath of fresh air! I will be back!
