So quaint. So cute. So comfortable and relaxing. Had our own little deck with adirondack chairs. The owners were down to earth and let us check in bright and early. Wish we could have stayed another night. So very worth it! Bring Off! Mosquitoes love me. If your prone to insect bites then beware. Don't forget to Check out the...

We just completed a 2 week trip to Eleuthera. It was our 7th trip to Eleuthera and the 6th time that we have stayed at the Rainbow Inn. I think that sums up how we feel about The Rainbow Inn. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. We rented the house, The Caribbean Jewel. It is very comfortable and the...

The Rainbow Inn is a great place to go! We spent almost 2 weeks on Eleuthera, checked out most of the restaurants which were recommended by tripadvisor. Having dinner here is really a must. We sat outside on the porch, had fantasic cocktails while watching a beautiful sunset. The people there are very nice! We had the "Surf'n Turf" platter...

We went for both lunch and pizza night. Prices are very reasonable. Lunch was good, but stick with Bahamian food. Neither my sister nor I could eat the cheeseburger. Pizza night is fun. A band adds to the festivities. It gets a good crowd so make a reservation. We were seated outside. Seemed inside seats were all taken by locals...

First, the better bits: decor (multi-colored Caribbean) attractive, servers diligent, informed and efficient, kitchen willing to make variations on request. Rainbow Inn has a nice menu; short enough that the kitchen can serve promptly, varied enough that different tastes can be accomodated. The food is well prepared and tasty. We are going back tonight for a 4th visit, so it...

Maybe it was a your mileage may vary, but I didn't feel like it was as great as everyone says. Maybe it was a bad selection, or a not so hot waiter, but it was sort of MEH for me. But, a lot of regulars give it raves so maybe it was just bad luck.

We stopped in for an impromptu visit on pizza night. Reservations probably are best, we got one of the last two tops available and did not have a wait at all. We started with the jerk wings which were wonderful. A couple of cold Kalik's and a beautifully hefty pour of Sauvignon blanc hit the spot. Shared a pizza, half...

Totally Loved Rainbow Inn. We were there for our daughter's wedding. cannot say enough mice things about Rhonda and the staff. Mish, the wedding planner helped a great deal and everything looked beautiful!The food was delicious! They even opened up especially for us so we would have somewhere close to eat breakfast. Nothing like a lobster omelet!! Thanks so much...

We just returned from a trip to Eleuthera, Bahamas, for a friend's wedding and had an amazing time. Most of the wedding party stayed at rental houses in Rainbow Bay, but we decided to stay at the Rainbow Inn, and could not have made a better decision. Our experience there was wonderful from the time we arrived to the time...

Monday night is pizza night and local music. Wood fired pizza is a rarity in the out islands so go. It was good. Music was as good as the pizza and it is really fun to check out the locals who are lucky to live in this beautiful place! We were at the Cove and it was only a 15...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, friendly, informal INN by the sea and specialize in personal service. The INN's location on the island makes it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of Eleuthera. Within minutes of the INN are some of the island's top tourist attractions: Surfer's Beach, the Famous Caves of Hatchet Bay, Glass Window Bridge, the Pineapple Fields of Gregory Town, plus our own Secret Beach. We even have Bonefish Graham's "Rainbow Guide" to bonefishing on Eleuthera. Our waterfront area with its seaside tennis court and some of the best snorkeling on the island (one of the sites on the Jean-Michel Cousteau Bahama Out island Snorkeling Adventures) will provide hours of enjoyment for the whole family. ... more   less
