Bahama Beach Club Resort
What We Love
- The sea here is clear, warm and shallow, with few waves, making it ideal for small children
- Offers the privacy and space of a vacation home with the comforts of a luxury hotel — such as an on-site restaurant (although not a five-star one) and room service
- Despite being privately owned, each condo is uniquely and luxuriously decorated by a professional
What To Know
- Free long-distance calling to the USA and Canada, and free WiFi is included in the Jetsetter rate
- Although the resort tries to cater to couples and families equally, it’s more popular with the latter — so expect kids if you come
- No need to rent a car: the property is within walking distance of a grocery and liquor store, and bike and cart rentals and free transport between the condos and airport are also offered
- An automatic departure cleaning fee of $99 to $139 (depending on room size) will be charged at Jetsetter check out
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
Caribbean-style condo resort set right on three-and-a-half-mile Treasure Cay Beach. Getting from one spot on the resort to another requires walking through the property’s lush vegetation and well-manicured gardens, where the air smells of jasmine and frangipani.
Bed and Bath
Accommodations range between two and five bedrooms and include dining areas and full kitchens, as well as laundry and daily housekeeping service — ideal for big families. Tasteful, beach-themed decor presides (think rattan beds topped with crisp white duvets, couches with colorful upholstered cushions, and cool tile floors throughout), and bedrooms feature oversize windows that allow for gusts of island breezes. Since units are individually owned, they vary in look, but unlike many rentable condos here they’ve been kitted by a professional decorator with owner input, rather than the other way around. Living areas have indoor-outdoor spaces with private screened lanais that front the beach, the perfect place for a sundowner.
Treasure Cay Beach is the biggest draw here, particularly since it’s generally much less crowded than some of its equals on other Caribbean islands. Unlike many condo complexes, Bahama Beach Club maintains an on-site restaurant and one of the two freshwater swimming pools also has an in-pool bar. A long list of activities — from water sports to golf — mean there’s something to keep everyone entertained.
How to Get There
Our family of 12 rented three condos (2009, 2011, 2012) for a week and we had an amazing time. The rooms are large and spacious, with each of our condos having three bedrooms and large living spaces. They were nicely furnished and had all the cooking and dish ware needed to make meals and snacks. The pool was clean, hot tub was nice and hot, and the beach is one of the best we’ve ever been to. The sand is so soft, and it goes on for as far as you can see. Here’s some thoughts:
1) definitely rent golf carts to get around the Cay. Not a lot to do, but we did go to several restaurants, played golf, and cruised around to spots to see the sunrise and sunset. If you are looking for a lively spot, this isn’t it. Here to relax only.
2) be prepared for slow service EVERYWHERE and high prices. We are familiar with “island time” from previous vacations, but this was a whole different kind of slow. Several dinners (on and off Resort) took over 1.5 hours for an adult party of four when we left our kids with Grandma for the night. Prepare yourself.
3) high prices, meals > $40 a plate, drinks > $10 before you add the 12% VAT.
4) walking the strand on the leeward point at low tide was one of the coolest beach adventures we have done in life. You can hunt for seashells and sand dollars while walking out what seems like a quarter mile.
5) go on a boating tour with Captain Snapper or his father Lincoln. We left at about 10am and stayed out past 3:30pm. He dove for lobster for lunch, we all fished and he was so great with our young boys, took us to a private spot for lunch where we fed stingrays, saw sharks, and had a great fish fry and lobster boil. We finished the trip by feeding the swimming pigs before heading home. It was amazing!
We were staying at Treasure Cay Resort and we walked down the beach and found Bahama Beach Club. THey have a great cafe/bar on the beach. The food was excellent and the prices were a little lower than Coco's. Go and enjoy a nice lunch or dinner, with a view that is just fabulous.
The hotel was exactly what we were expecting. Within walking distance of the marina. If you are looking for quick pool service this is not your place. If you want a gorgeous beach and very nice condos this is perfect. We hit the grocery store by the marina and stocked up. We also made our own drinks often. Which is exactly what we were looking to do.
Two single moms and three kids. We were very safe and the island was perfect! We relaxed several days and did excursions also. It was perfect!
Absolutely gorgeous location on one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Fine white sand, turquoise seas and waving palms. 3 bed/3 bath condo (2059) was immaculate, tastefully decorated and we'll supplied. Weather in November was perfect and even served up a passionate tropical storm.
What a splendid venue this would be for a location wedding in their ocean/poolside facility.
My husband has never eaten so much lobster and we are planning to return next year.
We visited the Bahama Beach Club for lunch. The lunch was tasty, reasonably priced and service was friendly. We stayed at the beach and got to see dolphins in the ocean. Then we got in the pool and ordered a few drinks. Overall, a pleasant experience.
