Grand Hyatt Baha Mar offers 1,800 ocean-, fountain-, and island-view guest rooms, including 230 suites all featuring tropical accents, dramatic architecture, and local art. The hotel is part of the three-hotel complex known as Baha Mar, a high-end resort playground with the Caribbean’s largest casino, a flagship ESPA, 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, and numerous restaurants, luxury boutiques, and nightclubs. Just steps from the hotel lobby is lovely Cable Beach and Grand Hyatt’s BEACH Sanctuary, which is reserved exclusively for guests. Experience island-inspired and global cuisine from acclaimed local and international chefs, be it cocktails on the beach at Out Island Bar or Mediterranean cuisine served from an open kitchen at 3 Tides. After dinner, soak in the suave environment of the Blue Note, a jazz-themed bar pairing classic cocktails and live music.
In the Area
Sporty types will have a field day with the activities available at the resort. For a start, the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course features ocean views and beautiful natural topography. Then there’s the The Racquet Club at Baha Mar, where you can perfect a swing of a different kind on one of the nine clay, hard, and grass tennis courts. Just steps from the resort is Cable Beach, a stretch of boutique stores, bars, and restaurants. Explore Bay Street and stroll through the lively open-air Straw Market where local craftsmen sell handwoven items, island souvenirs, and other charming goods. Alternatively, you can explore the underwater world on a scuba adventure with Stuart Cove’s, a dive shop with skilled divers who have been leading trips to reefs, wrecks, and coral walls since the 1970s. If you’re more of a landlubber and have a taste for rum, head instead to John Watling’s, a famous Bahamian distillery in downtown Nassau housed in the 1789 Buena Vista Estate.
How to Get There
Wow what a beautiful hotel. We were fortunate to get a suite upgrade. It was spectacular. Living area, two large bathroom and a small dining area. Butlers were very friendly and attentive. Plenty of pools and restaurants on premise. We recommend the jazz club and Costa for dinner. Fitness room could be a bit bigger and include more weight machines. Free sun tan lotion at the towel stations.
This is a very big resorts. It definitely have some pros but I simply don't think it is worth the price. The good:
- Fantastic beach with amazing water and sand. Free access to sun beds (a lot of them), umbrellas, canoes, snorkling gear etc.
- Lush garden
- Proximity to airport
- Big and modern rooms. If you are lucky with great views.
- Price level. They charge a lot for the room and thats just the start. A local beer in a pool bar is $10 when they have added taxes and 15% mandatory tip. Sliders and soda for 2 from a food truck is above $50. And so on...
- Service level. Staff is plentiful but seldom very interested in serving you. There's people everywhere but they don't really seem to care about the guests so much. Once in a while a manager drops by and ask you if everything is OK in a bit too obvious way. I suppose they have at least realized that this is an issue.
- Cleaning is sub par
- Not really family friendly. More like a Las Vegas hotel on a beach.
All in all, there must be more authentic and valuable destinations in the Caribbean if you want to make the trip from Europe. But if you want the combination of a casino and great beach (and if money is not an issue) this is a good spot to go.
The facility was very nice but the food and beverages were overpriced. The staff overall were great. We really enjoyed the jazz bar, Bue Note. The music was great and the staff were wonderful. We enjoyed the 3
Tides restaurant and Fi Lia restaurant but did not like the Swimming Pig.
1. The hotel room walls are too thin.
2. The balcony has no cover so the rain becomes a problem. Why don’t rooms have a mini fridge?
3. Drinks are $20 and not made well. They pour as much sugar as possible and the alcohol is added afterwards.
4. The servers have a horrible attitude, and maybe bc they’re guaranteed a 15% service charge.
6. The beach feels like a cattle ranch with 5 rows of chairs all clumped together and connected.
This hotel goes out of its way to provide little as possible and charge you for everything it can.
The hotel was beautiful. The rooms were excellent. Great bars. Food was really good but I was hoping for more seafood options...especially for a Caribbean hotel.. However, the customer service was horrible. They were not rude but it felt like they didn't care or that the customers were bothering them. With the exception of one waiter at the Palm Cafe, I never received a smile. It would take about 10 minutes after being sat down to have the waiter come by and even offer us water or a menu. I associate this to the fact that tip is already included in all bills thus not having the need to earn the service tip. My suggestion would be to remove the automatic tip thus improving the service.
