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
Beautiful resort and amazing service! Digital tablet in a room is your friend and make sure you check it out - menus for bars and restaurants, service requests, property map, activities schedule. Enjoy flamingos, discovery center (kids 3-12), 0 entry pools (perfect for kids), kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling gear, floaties, movies at the pool, free boat ride from the hotel pier to Balmoral island and VIP area there, feeding exotic birds, night club. Taxis always available in the front. Airport ride is about $25 one way. Beach chairs and umbrellas are included with your stay (some resorts charge for that) and life vests available in adult and kids sizes. Food quality is on par with prices. Average entree’s cost is $30. Menus and prices are available online if you want to know what you are getting into and set budget for your dining. Restaurant 3 Tides offers free kids meal ($12 value) for kids 5 and under with adult entree purchase. All resorts have resort fees- for some you have to pay at booking, for some it’s due upon your arrival. All travel booking websites specified the amount and I am not sure why people are surprised by that. The only CON is a confusing room descriptions. I was looking to book a full balcony ocean view room but somehow ended up with a Juliet balcony which is narrow, stand-only one. So be careful if you want a balcony to seat on.
No joke, on our 3rd night at the resort my wife and I were both commenting on how amazing the food on a Golden Corral tv commercial looked due to our experience with the food at the resort. We tried most of the restaurants including room service. It’s complete and utter garbage to the point where I wonder if anyone in charge at Hyatt has ever actually gone to the resort and tasted the food. It made it even more difficult to swallow since the prices were borderline ridiculous. My wife and I travel a lot and we’re used to paying high resort prices but this was over the top. It’s sad because the resort is actually nice but the food experience ruins it. We won’t return because of it.
This place is amazing. The property is beautiful and the landscape and grounds are so breath taking. We had a wonderful time and we will be back! The variety of restaurants, pools and casino were great.
Well there seemed to be a bit of confusion when checking in, but it was resolved eventually. We found the prices for “everything” extremely high, which included VAT, levy, Service charge and others. We weren’t told and didn’t realize, until after our second or third purchase (food/drinks) that service fees were already included, as we were tipping on top of that. I also had a few bad experience with some of the food truck vendors. On the first day I walked up to order food for my family from the slider food truck and waited a few minutes standing alone (literally no one else standing around waiting to order) while the servers chatted amongst themselves, until one lady turn to me and said that they were quite busy and that there is a back order for 20-30 min. Before I could respond to say that I would wait, she quickly told me that they were not taking any orders at this time and I should try somewhere else to order from. The majority of staff were nice, but we did have a few bad experiences that has put us off going back to Bahamas. On top of everything else, there wasn’t any planned events or activities for families. For the price that we had paid, including for food and drinks, would have been covered two times over at an all-inclusive resort somewhere else. As loyal as we are to Grand Hyatt, we won’t be going back to Grand Hyatt Baha Mar anytime soon.
Has everything you need for a great family vacation, we will be back again very soon, great get away,something to do for everyone in the family and room was very clean and relaxing Strongly recommend Baha Mar
