Room was very nice. Beautiful views and great balcony! WIFI was in and out, made it hard for conducting business in room. Staff was especially nice and helpful. Had catering done, they did an outstanding job!

After a week cruising the cays, we spent our final night at ABR&BHM for Valentine's Day since we had an early flight out the next morning. We had a warm welcome and our room was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. Everyone we came in contact with was so gracious and willing to serve with a great smile and pleasant conversation....

Staff were gracious, and the food terrific! This is a great place to relax and get away. I do not recommend to come here and work, you will not compute!...

This hotel sits on the beach. It's a lovely old hotel. There are updated condos near the lobby-hut facing the harbour which are delightful as well. I stayed in the newest building. I loved my room. I had visited my friends room in the old building and it too was fine. She had the view of the sea but she...

This was our first visit to Marsh Harbour and chose this place based on the good reviews. We were visiting the week after Christmas and our room was a much higher rate than normal.

This resort allowed us to settle into the island lifestyle graciously. Our room was HUGE and the view over the palm treed lawn to the water was outstanding.

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.
