Legitimate beach, sun-drenched, quiet and relaxing
Submitted: May 9, 2012
Stayed: April 2012
My girlfriend and I stayed in this condo for seven nights in April. We were very happy to find the residence stocked with bathroom towels, dinner plates/glasses/silverware, ice cube trays, and beach chairs, among nearly everything else I would expect to find in a normal United States residence. The two of us were very comfortable hanging out in and sleeping in the condo, in the evening the living room was relaxing for watching the cable television. We did not hear any neighboring condos at any point during our stay, and I was able to borrow WiFi Internet from another tenant during most of our stay.
The beach is on the property and was largely free of trash. There was a lot of beach for the handful of people on it each day, we had ample space and privacy whenever we were outside. The ocean water was really clear and shallow enough for an adult to comfortably wade and more. I felt that my overall beach experience was very good for what we paid. The pool was very well maintained, it's temperature seemed (fortunately) a bit warmer than the ocean, and I believe that the property provided chaise lounges for use around the pool. There's an outdoor restaurant immediately next door that is easily accessible from the property's beach, the service was always cordial and the prices were not the worst I paid on the island.
Port Lucaya was a 15 or 20 minute walk from the condo. Other than the aforementioned outdoor restaurant, I did not find any other retail establishments any closer than Port Lucaya. Taxi drivers wanted $10 for what is a two minute cab ride from Port Lucaya to the condo, although usually I could get this reduced to $8. I was able to purchase beer, liquor, and sufficient groceries in the Port Lucaya retail shops, although not enough food for if we had wanted to prepare a meal. We walked back from Port Lucaya in the dark on several occasions, we never felt threatened nor observed any shady behavior. I would want to stay in this condo again if I return to Grand Bahama.
