“West Wind II Short Stay”
Reviewed 25 March 2012 via mobile

We were invited to stay in a villa here with another couple for a few days of their one week stay. The unit was perfect for two couples, clean and comfortable.

The staff were all very nice. Things do move at a much slower pace here and it was hard for me to adjust. I needed a few more days to get use to things not being open until 9 or 10 am.

The food we had at the snack bar was good and a reasonable price. If we had been staying a whole week we would have taken advantage of the villa's kitchen a little more.

The beach was just beautiful. The WWII grounds and pools are very well kept. There are plenty of chairs around but none on the beach. We were able to use beach chairs of the Sheraton that is right next door. We meant to have breakfast there one morning but we never did. We did go in one day to buy water.

One morning I took a 3 mile run off the property and felt very safe doing this. Previous International travels have been to Mexico and I have to say Nassau felt very different. Very safe, comfortable and everyone from the staff at WWII to bus drivers, waiters, vendors...were all very nice and I never felt like anyone was just trying to scam me out of an extra dollar.

We bought our own beer at a Duty Free liquor store but to me it was still very expensive. $93 for 2 cases of Bud Light, but I knew it would be pricey ahead of time.

We walked to the Swiss Sweet Shop one morning and got pattys. The chicken was my favorite and I also tried the coconut tart. Loved the art.

Dinners out were at The Fish Fry, Heavenly ?. I can't remember the name. Attendant at the liquor store recommended it and I loved it! Service was good, food was delicious and it was on the water. Again pricey, but worth it to me.

We also ate at Capriccio. Were on our way to Cafe Matisse but the taxi driver recommended it. What a great meal! Service was great and I will be thinking about the calamari we had there for along time. It was the best I've ever had, no doubt. Capricco is about 3/4 of a mile from WWII and we walked back.

On our last night we decided to give the Poop Deck a try. Service was great and the food was good, but not worth the price in my opinion. Still glad we went but not a place we would go back to...the rice and beans were my favorite thing that came with my meal, but it was different than the rice and beans at The Fish Fry place and I liked TFF's so much better.

We had daquaris at the Dacquari Shack and I thought they were very yummy. We shopped at the market that is right there across from the Sheraton and found a few things. Seems all the booths have about the same stuff and they will bargain.

During out days, we took our beer to the beach and just hung out. The beach vendors we there but not aggressive or anything like that. If we had more time we would have done a boat cruise but we'll save it for next time.

The Coconut Man was there one day and I did have two of his piña coladas served in a coconut. He even made sure to match my umbrella in my drink to my swim suit! So sweet.

My only complaint about our stay is it wasn't long enough. Nassau is definitely somewhere we will go back!

The WWII is a lovely property and as some have mentioned it is older but that doesn't take anything away from all the good things there are about it.

This is a small timeshare built in the 70's with nondescript, suburban style architecture. Although unit was clean, it could use some fresh paint, new kitchen and bathroom counters, and new window coverings. Vertical blinds in 2nd floor loft bedroom didn't keep out light from nearby parking lot, so bring an sleep mask. Grounds were generally well maintained, but our patio/deck had cigarette butts in what should have been a planter box. The (small) beach was not raked, so shredded plastic was strewn on sand. Price was good - seemed to be in the budget category.

The unit was spotless and well supplied with all you need to cook if you like. The grounds were wonderful and the units are just steps from the beach. Just pop on bus # 10 for a short ride to town. I would love to see the units updated (ok I'm spoiled) but we will go back next winter for sure. We had fun at the casinos (just next door) and enjoyed local eaters for our dinner. Grocery store is 3/4 mile fm the unit and I took several canvas shopping bags for the short walk back to the unit or take bus # 10 back from the store. What can I say but it was a fine week!

First, the good things; and there are lots of good things about this resort. The rooms are great. They are very spacious. We had one bedroom and an additional loft that had two more twin beds. The kitchen and all the items in the kitchen were in pretty good condition. A newer flat screen TV finished out the nice parts of the hotel.

Outside the rooms, the pool closer to the highway is the popular one. It is heated and generally at a good temperature (and is salt water so be ready the first time you jump in!). The second pool is closer to the beach and I didn't see a single person in it for the entire week we were there. It was unheated and in an extremely windy part of the resort (it was always more windy there than anywhere else, I can't explain it). There is no hot tub on the premises which was a little bit of a bummer.

The beach is also a great part of this resort. A quick walk down and you have a small private area on the beach. We chose to walk a little further down the beach to the Sheraton because they have chairs set up that you can use for free. The location of the hotel in general is pretty good. You are walking distance from many good restaurants, a casino, and the grocery store. It's not too far from Nassau, but far enough that you are a little bit away from the busy city.

Now the negatives: the hotel goes to bed early. The onsite bar was closed by 10 every night. No one was out and about in the pool area. For people with kids who are trying to go to bed early this may be a positive, but we always like to stay up a little bit later when we are on vacation. We found ourselves going into the city more often than not. Inside the rooms, I did not find the beds comfortable. They were a bit stiff and I found myself waking up a lot. The only other negative I really have which I mentioned earlier was no hut tub. They have two pools, one of which isn't used, so I would think they could find a way to get a hot tub in there.

Overall, the resort was very nice and I would highly recommend it to families with smaller children. For couples, it is still very nice, but if you are looking for a little more night action, you may want to look somewhere else.

Room Tip: Aim for the group of condos closer to the street. Much less wind so you can enjoy yourself on your...

This place was really great. In a great location and very clean. We were only 3 units from thebeach. The weather could have been better, but other than that we had a fantastic time. I will saythat things in Nassau like groceries and beer wereway more than I expected,but it didn't ruin my vacation.

We stayed here for a week Spring of 2011 and got 2 ocean-view apartments. My parents, my sister and her husband and 6-year-old all stayed in one; we stayed in another with our 2-year-old.

We arrived early and the cleaning crew had not yet gotten to our place, so we hung by the cafe/bar and pool. We were able to dig out suits and towels and use the spacious bathrooms to change and go for a dip. We did have to ask regularly if the space was ready, and no one came out to tell us when it was, but in fairness we arrived well before check-in time.

The apartments are plenty spacious for a small family, with a well-equipped kitchen and a nice TV. The sliding bedroom doors didn't block out much noise, so we had to tip-toe around once our son was asleep. We had 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, which was nice. The bathrooms were in decent shape for this type of vacation property- not great, but I've seen worse. There was a nice outdoor patio and the view was great.

I recommend renting a water cooler or at least getting the big multi-gallon containers of water from the front desk. The tap water there is potable, I believe, but not great or recommended. The other unit's cooler broke mid-week and leaked all over, but the staff quickly came and fixed it.

There were plenty of towels and you could exchange them in the laundry on several designated days each week. I was glad we brought out own beach towels, though. You could buy tokens and soap for the laundry and do laundry at any timel; the machines worked well.

On our side of WW II, the property adjoins a public beach, so on 1 or 2 nights there were some racous parties going on. There is a serious wall between the properties and security regularly makes the rounds, which was reassuring yet seemed to indicate there may be some petty crime from time to time. We didn't experience any problems however.

The grill/bar has modest hours and it's not really a place to come for spring break and party it up. Try the big international Sheraton next door for that. The food at WW II was standard grill food and breakfast especially was modest offerings, but nothing was bad. We tended to eat breakfast in the unit, anyway.
Bar offerings were also modest, but the beers were good and cold.
The grill staff were moderately friendly; I believe in the Bahamas in general, service is pretty so-so, and occassionally rude. Everyone was accomodating with our son though, which was nice. (The Sheraton next door has a few poolside grills itself, and a swim-up bar, and everything stays open later. The restaurants inside are so-so and expensive, though.)

The beach itself was small but suitable for building a few sand castles and starting off on a snorkel. Not great snorkeling or reef life there, though. There are assorted beach toys you can sign out from the office- we didn't realize the policy though so by the time we wanted a blow-up raft and a shovel and bucket, other families with kids had already taken everything!
The pools were nice and clean but only the bigger pool was warmed. Children require close supervision due to pool depth. A better bet for kids was the assortment of pools next door at the Sheraton- you could easily wander in and use their chairs, pools, and bathrooms with no questions asked.

WW II is a little far from downtown Nassau, but that was one of its draws, for us. You can see dozens of cruise ships coming in and out of Nassau all day long. We did rent a vehicle so that made grocery shopping and restaurant hopping easier. I strongly recommend to check out what more the island has to offer.

Overall a great place to stay if you're there for a family trip.

Room Tip: Call them up and negotiate a lower price on an ocean-view unit. Sometimes you can wait until you...

I am an owner and I fell in love with place the first time I set foot on the property. My kids have grown up there and now they are bringing their kids to WW2. The staff is the best, as we have made life long friends. Very safe, very clean, and just a great place to stay. I have been weeks that are quiet, but my home weeks are wild, One big party. Every night there is a waiting list to use the grill, from 4:00 till dark. So there is always a party at the grill, every night. A great family resort, no matter how old your kids are, they will have fun.
