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.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2060/prop-44886-1321476016-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Oceanfront Junior Suites measure 550 square feet and come with a terrace or balcony.”}Suites on the first floor have double doors leading out to a breezy patio with the lawn and beach just beyond, while those on the second floor have a balcony with views of the bay or the infinity pool. 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.

Seems there has been an overhaul to customer service, much nicer, happier staff at Marina, Hotel & Pool area. Rooms also seem to be bug free, as in things like ac, plumbing in good working order. teasers grill poolside wont disappoint, conch bits, cheeseburger...covered patio, all great! If you are lucky out mate Chris will be frying up your fresh catch at the kitchen! ❤️❤️🐟🐟🐟OBB

Great location, staff, marina and restaurants, however the buildings are in need of repair.

We had a great time! The subject says it all. Beautiful location and great staff, the buildings are in dire need of repairs. Some buildings still have sections of their metal roof missing from the hurricane 2 years ago. I would still recommend, but highly suggest that the owners invest some money in fixing up the buildings.

Much improved service at the marina. They actually answer the phone and emails! Slips in decent shape. Fuel, electric and water working well. WiFi, not so much. Showers and facilities still poor. Restaurant very good. Major progress, especially for the Bahamas. Keep it up!

First class, while maintaining a relaxed beach vibe.

We loved our trip to Old Bahama Bay. We came by boat from Florida, and stayed for four nights. We enjoyed fishing and exploring in our boat, the resort's beautiful beach and pool, and exploring using the resort's bicycles. Everything felt safe and first class (but not pretentious) with a nice relaxed beach vibe.
