Beautiful resort. Cute litle beach. Not much choice of restaurants and the menu very limited. I also think that the resort was understaffed and their evening entertainment very wick. I will recomended for a sort stay, say two or tree days otherwise if you are not a fisherman it can be TOO relaxing.

Thank you for your recent visit to Old Bahama Bay. We do strive to provide tranquil and relaxing getaways, so you are correct, we do not offer entertainment each night. We do, however, have a wide array of daytime activities – paddleboards, kayaks, sailing, snorkeling, fishing, massages, and so much more. We hope you will be able to take advantage...

To those who are unfamiliar with the type of resort this is, you will soon learn that this is no ordinary resort. Here families, groups of friends, and both combined share the days fishing and the nights reaping the rewards. The beach is absolutely beautiful as is the staff with their eagerness to share the beauty of the Bahamas. The...

Terrific location only made better by the friendly boaters we cooked out with every evening near our boat slip. The 2 bedroom suite we had booked thru Travelocity was only honored for the first two nights due to some computer error overbooking. Be sure to carry all of your provisions including wine, spirits, charcoal and a hose for your boat...

Thank you for once again choosing Old Bahama Bay for your vacation.

The resort itself is nice, with a wonderful view. It is peaceful and it was nice to watch the yachts coming into the arena, however there are many downfalls to the resort. The first full day we were there, the staff came in and cleaned our room. When we returned to our room, we noticed alcohol, a red bull, and...

Thank you for your recent visit. We are most concerned to read about the theft in your room. The management was not aware of the situation and we will contact you separately about it so we can fully address your concerns.

Perfect location to get to by boat. Well maintained property. Excellent customer service. Beautiful scenery. Great beach bar and restaurant. We loved the use of the paddleboards, kayaks, snorkeling all just right there on the beach. And the pool is beautiful in a great location near the beach. Just perfect!
