Beware the posted schedules of this airline are just suggestions and may not be followed. We showed up for our 9 am flight at 8:30 only to find the plane had already left. This 10 seater plane takes maybe 15 minutes to board but it chose to strand us and leave 40 minutes early

Response from StanielCayYachtClub, Owner at Staniel Cay Yacht Club
Responded 2 weeks ago
Thank you for taking the time to describe your experience, although we wish it was more pleasant for you. Flamingo Air is an independent, scheduled, air service out of Nassau, and Staniel Cay Yacht Club has no affiliation with them. In regards to the cash advance fee, unfortunately, there is no bank or ATM on Staniel Cay and this is an infrastructure problem that we are lobbying the government to assist with. This situation requires us to fly to Nassau whenever more cash is needed, thus the service fee to help offset the expense of doing so. We promise you there is no collusion occurring. This lack of banking on-island is why we always encourage our guests to travel with cash for local guides, business, and unforeseen circumstances. We are very sorry you experienced this situation with Flamingo Air. Our sister company, Makers Air, flies to Staniel Cay twice-daily from Ft. Lauderdale if you decide to return and would like to try a different transportation option.

We shared Coco Plum with friends and it was spectacular waking up and drifting off to the view of the islands and crystal clear water. Highly recommend getting the package. Cruising the islands and sandbars in the skiff was the best. Can’t say enough about the water clarity

If you're looking for a laid back, relaxing, fun vacation this is the place!! We did the all inclusive package and definitely recommend it as the way to go. We took out our little boat everyday and explored all the nearby cays and never shared beach with anyone. Gorgeous

THIS place is worth writing a review! Despite many aspects being first-come-first-served or instructed to "just ask an employee when you need help," this experience was flawless from beginning to end. Highlights Airline to hotel experience was extremely streamlined and

We just arrived home today and we are already thinking about a return trip! It is interesting to read the reviews of SCYC. Most people love their experience and then there are people who actually expect everything to be perfect in the remote Bahamas, as if they are vacationing

How do you get to Staniel Cay? The airfare is unreal from waymakers. Is there any other way from Florida?
Fly to Ft Lauderdale and use Watermakers or fly to Nassua and use Flamingo. I wouldn't call the airfare from Watermakers "unreal". Flamingo will be much cheaper as the flight from Nassau to Staniel Cay is 30 min vs 90 min from Ft Lauderdale. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

Do you all provide blowdryers in the rooms?
"Water front cottages are the best way to go. Get the add-on package of meals and boat"
"The colored cottages are right by the pool"
"Yellow bungalow is the best."
"Beware renting a golf cart from stanielcaygolfcarts.com We paid cash & our card was also charged."
"We stayed in both Key Lime and Yellow. I liked being on that side of SCYC - further away from the restaurant and marina at night."
