The Abaco beach resort is staffed by some of the nicest people I've run in to in awhile. They made our daughters wedding in to something very special for both her and her groom. The resort itself is very quiet and this is the type of place you come to really relax. It wasn't busy when we visited and we...

Nice view, clean room. Off-season, but still nice. The bar at the pool is great. Wish it wasn't raining so we could have hung out there longer. Fun to look at the boats in the marina. Once of our favorite places to go for lunch in the Abacos.

Only stayed one night but more than adequate. Well maintained property set in beautiful settings. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Restaurant was reasonably good but nothing exceptional. Little expensive but probably comparable to the competition.

We were there in the off season (September) only a handful of guests, literally. Many of the services were closed down, pool was drained. They should have let us know. Given the limited amenities, the proce seemed very high. It is a beautiful property and the rooms were nice, the front desk staff was accomodating and friendly.

Restaurant and bar food were excellent. Loved the Tiki bar pool area. Hotel is really trying to be a top of the line hotel based upon prices. Rooms could be upgraded, or refreshed. However, the location and amenities were great and the staff was all very helpful and profession.

25% tax! Just astounded by the price and lack of value. Be aware: the older building is the farthest building. Rates there are lower and the walk is longer (although, you can call for a jitney to pick you up). Rooms 100, 200, 300, etc., are farthest from the lobby (1st, 2nd and 3rd floors). Rooms ending in 50---150, 250,...

This place is a wonderful place to stay. The people are so pleasant and kind. Our room was clean and spacious. The first night the A/C was not as cool as we needed it so they changed our room with no questions. Great place and staff.
