Overview

The Review

Arriving at Old Bahama Bay, which has 73 rooms and nearly just as many marina slips, is like being welcomed to a private harborside club. The cluster of two-story houses, washed in pale pinks, greens and blues, have a calm, almost preppy vibe — you’d never suspect that the surrounding bay has a history of marauding pirates and Prohibition-era rum runners.

All have an elegant, relaxed feel, with colonial plantation–style decor — think mahogany furniture, soft, pale linens and marble jet baths.

As well as the arc of white sand beach in front of the property, there’s a double-tiered cascading infinity pool, which is heated seasonally and never too crowded. And for active types, Hobie craft and clear-bottom kayaks lie at the ready; a bit farther away, the bright red activities hut offers bicycles, snorkel equipment and lifejackets.

Old Bahama Bay has two casual restaurants right beside the sea: Teasers Tiki Bar (for cocktails and snacks) and Bonefish Folley’s, which serves simple Bahamian dishes like conch fritters and chowder, followed by rum cake. I loved watching the brilliant sunset out the window as boaters unloaded their daily catch on the adjacent dock.

Although the property draws couples for these simple, romantic moments, it’s well suited for families with young children, too, with a small playground and toys to use on the beach. Above all, it’s the kind of place where all you need is a bathing suit, flip-flops and a laid-back state of mind.

Reviews

Beautiful location, with run down rooms and terrible wifi
Alex_Cay_travel

Unfortunately the hotel is very expensive and very run down. The hotel has no WiFi even though we had picked a more expensive hotel with WiFi so that we could work. In our room the toilet was blocked, the tumble dryer did not work, the coffee machine did not work. When we asked for pots and pans to cook for ourselves they were old and rusted and there were no sharp knives. When we asked for a knife we were informed that there were none. When we enquirer about a massage there was no one availible. Some days things were open and some days they were not. If we did not have a car and Bahamian SIM cards we would have been very stranded. It is a beautiful location, with a fantastic beach, but clearly in disrepair and quite a disappointment

Last Minute Stay
Bungytraveler

Had a last minute change of plans and pulled into West End. Luckily there was plenty of dockage available. They were nice enough to accomodate me on S dock. The staff was vey pleasant, Chuck is always helpful and Chaniqua at the fuel doc is always smiling. The only critique I have is that they should try to improve the marina restrooms. Keep them cleaner and stock with paper. Other than that a great stop along the way.

Family Lobster Trip

Our family comes over by boat every year for lobster season and this was a great one! The marina and the staff were great as always, very attentive to our needs and helpful during a BUSY week. Rooms were great with ice cold A/C. The grounds looked as good as i've seen them and the pool was spot on. Can't wait to get back, thanks OBB.
