THE BAHAMAS - 3,000 ISLANDS

Officially, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, is a nation of 353,000 residents scattered across 3,000 islands, cays and islets with Nassau as its capital city. 'Baja Mar' is Spanish for 'low sea' and this group of Caribbean Islands rests on the shallowest part called The Great Bahama Bank giving it's unique water clarity and abundance of sea life. Originally inhabited by the Lucayans, Christopher Columbus landed in the Bahamas in 1492 (the first tourist). While the Spanish never settled the Bahamas, English Puritans from Bermuda were the first European settlers. During the 18th century, The Bahamas became a haven for pirates. In an attempt to clamp down on piracy, the Bahamas became a British Crown Colony in 1718. After the American War of Independence in 1776, some 7,300 British loyalists and their slaves moved to the Bahamas to set up cotton plantations and lumber mills. Slavery was abolished in 1834 and their descendants, both British and slaves, populate the islands today.

NASSAU / NEW PROVIDENCE

Located on the island of New Providence, Nassau (formerly known as Charlestown) is the capital and largest city in the Bahamas with a population of 250,000 islanders, or roughly 70% of the nation's total population. As such, Nassau has become the commercial hub for the whole Bahamas, boasting over 400 banks and trust companies. Well over 4 million tourists visit the island annually, either by plane (staying in hotels) or arriving by cruise ship. Today, the city of Nassau dominates the entire island and it's satellite, Paradise Island (Atlantis). Nassau has an attractive harbor, a colorful blend of old world colonial architecture and a busy, modern-day cruise port.

CABLE BEACH

Cable Beach is recognized as the hotel district of Nassau and is famous for it's 14 mile stretch of golden sand beach and crystal clear water. Movie stars have known for years that the Bahamas are not only natural movie sets, Cable Beach is of Oscar-quality. Cable Beach is also known for it’s shopping and dining. BBQ Beach, Androsia and Capriccio are three of the best dining options in the Cable Beach area, each offering unique décor, a serene atmosphere, and distinctive cuisine. The Fish Fry area is a must-see eatery attraction. Cable Beach is also home to one of the only two casinos on the island.

CURRENCY & BANKING

The US Dollar is on par with the Bahamian dollar and both are accepted equally across the island. ATMs and banks are located throughout the island too. Some smaller businesses do not accept credit or debit cards, so having cash on hand is helpful. Some Bahamian currency and coins are considered novelties and make good souvenirs such as the square 15¢ coin and the $3.00 bill.

LOCAL LANGUAGE

English (more British than American) is the official language in Nassau, but you’ll likely encounter the locals speaking a more colorful Bahamian Dialect, which is English intertwined with Bahamian Creole. Example: “Whesa yuh tink usea goin’?” means “Where are you going?” Did you ever wonder where Jar Jar Binks picked up his accent?

ELECTRICITY & WATER

Standard North American 120-volt / 60-cycle AC current is used. All your existing power cords and electronics will plug right into the wall. No special adaptors are needed. The Nassau water supply is perfectly fine to drink straight from the tap. Bottled water is also available throughout the island.

MEDICAL & PRESCRIPTIONS

It's always a good idea to bring your prescription medication with you, however, there are 77 pharmacies on island who can fill your US prescriptions as long as it has your doctor's signature. There are also numerous walk-in clinics and internationally trained doctors in Nassau. There are two hospitals (Princess Margaret and Doctor’s Hospital) that are equipped to respond to emergency medical situations.

WEATHER & WATER TEMPRETURE

Surrounded by balmy tradewinds streaming off the warm Gulf Stream, Nassau is blessed with a wonderful semi-tropical climate. Temperatures range from 70o to 80o (F) most days. Rarely does it drop below 60o or climb above 90o (F). Water temperatures range from 74o to 80o (F).

CELL PHONE ROMING

AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile all offer roaming services for Nassau and cell phone coverage is good throughout the island. Roaming rates for the United States and Canada are $2.24 per minute and is billed through your home service provider. This includes “toll free” numbers. Call your service provider before you go for discounted package plans for voice, data and/or texting.

LOCAL OPTIONS

The local wireless company, Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) provides a variety of services. You can save money on long-distance by purchasing phone cards. These have great rates to the U.S. and Canada and can be found at any BTC location in Nassau. Alternately, you can purchase a 'Cybercell' Bahamas Prepaid SIM Card from BTC. A third choice is renting a phone from Cellular Abroad.

RESORT WIFI COVERAGE

Blue Water Resort has excellent WiFi coverage property-wide and at a very nominal cost. You will find it easy to keep up with your publications and websites by simply logging on. You can also save money on long distance calls by downloading an app like SKYPE, LINE2 or JAJAH and conducting your calls over the internet. It’s easier than you think.

WHAT TO WEAR

The Nassau is a very casual place and Blue Water Resort even more so. At the resort, your bathing suit is fine. If you venture off property, shorts are OK for men, and casual spring or summer dresses are appropriate for women throughout the year.

TIPPING

Except at Blue Water Resort (where tipping is not automatic), 15% is automatically added to most other food and beverage checks, so be sure to look. Taxi drivers should be tipped 15% of the fare. If a bellman helps you with your bags, $1 to $2 per bag is appropriate.

DRIVING

Driving is European style - on the left hand side of the road. When crossing the street, be sure to double-check for traffic in both directions. Roundabouts (instead of stop lights) are common on the island, which adds another element of excitement.

DRINKING AGE

The legal drinking age in The Bahamas is 18.

Q. Is the property located on the beach?

A. YES! We are located directly on Cable Beach, which is the beach vacation capitol of Nassau & Paradise Island.

Q. What amenities are close by?

A. Everything you need is within a few minutes walking distance. From the grocery store, to restaurants, shops, hotels, casino, pharmacy - you name it, it's there!

Q. Are bedding arrangements flexible?

A. Absolutely! We have a wide range of bedding arrangements to fit your needs! Let us know if you need more than one villa and we will be glad to assist you!

Q. How far is the property from the airport (NAS)?

A. We are located just 10 minutes from the airport. All taxis know where we are located, and if choosing to rent a car this can be done at the airport as well!

Q. Do I need to rent a car?

A. No. While we offer free parking right outside of the villas for your convenience, a car is by no means necessary! There is much within walking distance, and taxis are readily available and affordable throughout the island. Also, the local jitney bus stops right at our property for our guests' convenience and can take you practically anywhere for just $1.25.

Guestbook comments from the owner
When we arrived at the resort I was a little worried about my choice in location based on the outside appearance. Once I entered the Condo I knew I had made a perfect choice. The units are HUGE with all up to date ammenities. The ocean view rooms had ceiling to floor windows that allowed for a perfect view of the ocean. The private beach out back was perfect for a small number of family and friends I was able to rest and still keep a watchful eye on the kids because it wasn't too big, you can also walk by water to any other resorts for a more scenic view of the strip. The staff was extremely pleasant. The units were clean, the resort is in walking distance to shops and restaurants and has a bus stop right in front to travel to downtown. This will be our spot yearly for a girls vacation from here on out! I loved it.

GREAT RESORT, AWESOME STAFF, UPGRADES ONGOING

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Blue Water Resort at Guanahani Village in January of this year and though it was not as hot in the Bahamas as we would have liked, we loved the resort! Before our visit, we researched and found many positive and some mixed reviews, so we didn't know exactly what we would find. We also discovered through the resort site, that the resort was undergoing renovation and while we wished for a spanking brand new room, there was no way to guarantee that is what we would receive. We ultimately decided to stay because it offered the best value for our money - three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a full sized kitchen. Everyone would have enough room.

We stayed in one of the garden villas that was partially renovated. Score! Loved the patio with grill and lounge chairs. It was private, peaceful and park like. The sliding doors, were really sliding glass walls and with the outer doors locked, we could let our three year old play outside and still be able to see him from the inside. He loves the beach as do we and the one downside to the resort is that the beach is fairly small, but this is the Bahamas and there are tons of cool beaches!

I mentioned the fully equiped kitchen. It has everything you could need, down to the electric kettle for tea! The one negative is that there is not a lot of space in the kitchen to store your groceries unless you move the dishes around. Bring your own groceries! Food is tremendously expensive in the Bahamas. While you may not want to cook on vacation everyday, having the option, especially when you have children is a definite plus! And with the money we saved we were able to do many of the top attractions, like the Powerboats, Swim with the Dolphins and the Adastra Gardens. We tried the Pirates tour, but our son would have no part of it!

The staff was tremendous. They were always smiling and looking to see what they could do to make our stay more enjoyable. One of the staff even gave us a ride to the fish fry when she saw us waiting at the bus stop (which is right outside the resort). She insisted! They were knowledgeable and when the time came to discuss the timeshare option, there was no high pressure! Riding the bus is enjoyable and super easy!

Overall, we love the Bahamas and we loved our stay at Blue Water Resort! If you are travelling with a family or just want to relax, this is the place for you. If you are looking for the nightlife out of your hotel, not so much.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE

  • 2 of 5
We spent 10 days in a unit that was noisy (from the street, as well as the interior fan on the air-conditioning unit). The place was filthy, and we washed the floor but still had black feet most of the time. The location is OK, and the short walk to the beach is acceptable.
We were told we would have a garden view as no ocean views were available, but we got a parking lot view, and no way to upgrade was made available even though many units were empty.
I would not go back, and if we hadn't pre-paid the entire amount, I would have moved just about anywhere else on Cable beach.
I give this a fair rating, only because we met some very nice people and the staff at the front gate were absolutely great.
Do your best to avoid this place, unless you can get the ocean view and you can handle lots of noise while you attempt to sleep.

We stayed for a week. The garden view is OK, but the AC unit is in the master bedroom, and it is so loud we could not sleep. Pool is very warm, but beach is very small. The condo is very nice, but you need ear plugs in the master bedroom.

BEST PLACE IN THE WORRRRRRLLLLLLLLLLLLD!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here last week and it was EXACTLY what we wanted! First of all the villas offer such amazing space and are really nice, that you feel like you are just at home (except for whats coming). Except for the beach and the ocean and the everything! What I really enjoyed was that even though we had our own private home, there were certain amenities Blue Water Resort's Villas offer that other homes we have stayed at in the past can't offer because they are just isolated homes. This includes accessibility to everything: Blue Water is on Cable Beach which is the hot spot on the island, so we could walk to anything whenever we decided to wonder from the property. There is a staff there that helped us with whatever we needed - be it restaurant suggestions, or activity bookings. Also there is a poolside bar on the property which had amazing drinks and a great crew working there!

Overall it was great to have our privacy and space, but have everything that a hotel has that a private home typically does not - and at the same price of the more affordable private home (or actually even less). The economies of scale worked in our favor and we have already booked to go back this Fall!

We miss you guys!!!

SUPER WEEK!!

  • 5 of 5
Just walked in the door from a great week at Tranquility. We stayed with our two children, ages 5 and 8. This is the perfect place if you are looking for a quiet getaway.., The sunsets from the deck are unreal and the sound of the ocean slapping against the coral was so peaceful. I would definately recommend this to someone who is looking to get away from it all

Notes:
You will have to visit Blue Water Resort to truly understand how we differ from standard Nassau hotels. We dare you to compare our accommodations, amenities, services and overall value to any other hotel property on the island. With a more spacious floor plan, you will enjoy separate living, dining and sleeping areas. With a fully equipped kitchen, think of how much money you can save by not having to dine out three meals a day. Plus, you'll have the convenience of a washer and dryer right in your room so you can pack lighter and save on those airline extra baggage charges. The kids (and your guests) will enjoy having their own rooms too. With plenty of bathrooms, no one will be standing in line. Low cost wireless internet and lots of things to plug a Wii or GameBox into means that you're kids and guests will be totally entertained all hours- rain or shine! Friendly service and the finest comforts are standards here at Blue Water Resort. Why not treat yourself this year
