Located on 20 acres of Harbour Island’s three-mile Pink Sand Beach, the eponymous resort features 25 private standalone one- and two-bedroom cottages with garden or ocean views. All accommodations have white tray ceilings, iPod docking stations, tile flooring and double sliding wooden doors that open up to relaxing private patios. Resort amenities include a swimming pool, two tennis courts and Blue Bar, which doubles as a Caribbean bistro serving dishes such as grilled grouper fillet with cilantro, coconut rice, sautéed spinach and pineapple salsa.
In the Area
All activities on this low-key island involve the luminous azure waters. The resort has sunbeds and beach umbrellas for those who want to lounge on the sandy shores, as well as snorkeling equipment, paddleboards and kayaks for water-based fun. And if you want to see what you can reel in, ask the front desk to arrange a fishing outing on the reef or in deeper waters.
How to Get There
this is among the best place i have ever gone. great resort - great beach - great service. it is unlike anything in the states. resort has a series of cabanas/cabins spread out on it property. rooms are very big, great beds, ac works tremendous. you have a small patio in front of your cabana which is very nice to hang out at if not at the beach. resort has a great restaurant/bar located just above the beach. great menu that changes often. tremendous chef. service is outsanding. great place to take your wife, kids, or simply disappear for a while. cannot say enough great things abou this place. if you have never been to harbour island before (and you are flying into North Elutheria, consider having the resort meet you at the airport to get you to the resort. Can be a little bit intimidating if you have never done it before (you get a taxi to the boat dock and then a water taxi to Harbour Island and then another taxi to a resort). if you have them meet you - it will help you get the lay of the land. also, have the resort reserve a golf cart for you - it will be waiting for you at the resort. while there are some cars on the island - most people get around on golf carts. in closing - this is one of those places that you want to visit - is unforgetable
Let’s start by saying Harbor Island is the best in the Bahamas by a mile actually it is is the best Island vacation we have ever had including US and British Virgin Islands, Hawaii, etc. Pink Sands Resort is a hidden Gem on that Island. The cottages, the landscaping, the beach, the pink sand, the service and the food oh my God the food is fabulous. The Blue Bar has the best views and the nicest sea breeze on the island! If you really want to be pampered and unwind treat yourself!
We were there over 2 nights for a friend's awesome wedding on Pink Sands beach.
The key word for Harbor Island is "rustic" and this hotel delivers that in spades.
Our cottage Room was big and clean. Bathroom was exquisite and quiet. Right beside a dense forest. Very close to nature.
Our cottage was literally a 5 minute walk to Pink Sands beach. A truly breathtaking place.
The Blue bar serves amazing food. Chef is very creative. The service there is top notch and friendly.
The front entrance to the hotel is right in front of a large cemetery. Quite jarring. However, none of the rooms are close to the cemetery so i got over it. You do have to drive past it on your way out everyday.
It's expensive! Very. However, this is generic to the Bahamas in general. I was charged $6 for 2 slices of toast! However the lovely lady serving me gave it to me for free when she saw the shock on my face.
The room service was a little sloppy. I had to call 3 times before i received an iron. It also took a while for someone to come down to clean the room. Power went out a few times. However, this is normal on the island.
Overall, a lovely and peaceful place. We will be back.
Pink Sands Resort was amazing! We stayed here in June and was impressed the minute we checked in. The Front Desk agent, Ninja made checking in easy and was very helpful in getting us situated. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom ocean view cottages. It was spacious for 3 adults and 2 kids. There was a bottle of Champagne and a fruit and cheese plate waiting for us in the room since I had notified them it was my wife's 40th birthday and our 11 year anniversary. The Cottage had an Neopresso machine which makes great espressos and coffee, small fridge, counter space with glassware and bottled water, which were replenished everyday. The beach service was excellent, very helpful attendants and friendly. The beach path is convenient and beach was nice and clean. The view at the Bluebar was amazing. We had dinner there on our first night and breakfast on our last day. The food was delicious and service was attentive. Vincent the restaurant manger was very outgoing and friendly. We also meet the GM, Kym who we got to know took care of all our needs. We would definitely return to this resort next time we are in Harbour Island.
This resort was obviously once amazing. The facilities now all need updating and they need to hire more staff and train them. The beach is beautiful. This resort is not at all like its pictured on the website.
