Not a whole lot of middle ground with Sky Beach Club. This is a super property on a wonderful island that is being totally neglected. My guess is that the owners and sales staff are struggling, for some reason, with the property. Let me start with the cons. The road on the property is so bad that you have to navigate it, swerving from one side of the road to the other to avoid the horrendous potholes; some taxis refuse to drive it. The property needs major upkeep and refreshing: our washer drum was off-center so laundry was not possible; one the A/C units was leaking water down the wall; many tiles were broken in the pool; the infinity overflow pool was not working at all nor was it being cleaned so ours contained a coconut, 2 dead rats, 1 dead frog, and some other detritus. We point blank asked the sales office prior to arrival if there were chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Knowing that we were a group of 14, we were told yes, chairs and umbrellas at the beach. Sadly, the beach had 4 chairs and 1 frayed palapa that had been stripped of all fronds. We saw guys with machetes hacking away at the oleander and trying to maintain the place but it needs serious, serious attention. Having said that, the property is on a lovely, uncrowded beach, the swim up bar and pool area are not overwhelming, the food at Pascal's is actually quite tasty, staff are super friendly. The villas themselves were well made at the outset with every room en suite, nice linens and tons of amenities like beach towels and soap/shampoo, etc. Cleaning staff came every two days and they were so nice! Villa appointments like the furniture and appliances in the kitchen are really good. Although it would be good to have more then one dish towel! The views are spectacular. We had a great time here overall and the on-site staff could not have been nicer. But if you opt to book here, know that this is a quiet place, not a hot spot, so if you coming to look all cool and hip, this is not the place for you! If you are coming to relax with not a lot of who-ha then you might like it here. Just be sure some of the updates have been done first. And bring bug spray! The mosquitos are awful. Finally, the island has its own issues in that a few times we lost power and water pressure isn't great; these are not really the fault of the property. They do have a generator at the pool area so you can still get your frozen drinks and food at all times. And if the owners are reading this: either fix the place up or sell it but stop messing around because you are killing a good thing!

Room Tip: Larger villas require a short but steep walk up the hill or you need a car.

We had an amazing time at Sky Beach Club. Our accommodations were first class. We stayed in one of the 4 bedroom houses with a private pool. Our stay at Sky Beach Club was perfect. The food at Pascal’s was delicious and Sammy made the best drinks at Sammy’s swim up bar. Sammy was the best!! We will be back!

We stayed at Sky Beach Club for a week and were not disappointed! The on-site managers, CC and Nick were extremely helpful and answered every question we had even sharing more information about the beautiful island. This was our first time and they made us feel very welcome. The house was beautiful and modern with a spectacular view of the Atlantic. I saw past complaints about water pressure, but we had no problems! They have an onsite restaurant, Pascals and a pool bar with a spectacular bartender Sammy! It is also not far from many good restaurants in governors harbor. We would highly recommend this island and Sky Beach Club! We hope to be back.

The Pro’s first: Very good construction, nice modern well laid out floor plan, very spacious and great views. It was also pretty clean. Good stereo and dish TV. Only one TV, which is the living room. The beach is pretty good here. It is long and the left side is fairly free of debris. Also, the on-site managers are very nice and helpful. The food at Pascale’s is good and Sammy is an extremely personable and nice bartender. Good restaurants in Gov. Harbour and the Friday Fish Fry was fun.

On the downside: It is a bit of drive from the N. Eleuthera airport to the property – around 65 minutes on a paved, but pot holed road with lots of speed bumps.

We were greeted with a “Pool Closed” sign upon arrival. The pool, swim up bar, pool view and restaurant were some of the main reasons we chose to stay here. To say we were very disappointed would be a big understatement. The property manager did work very hard on repairing it and it opened up essentially 3 days later. Apparently, it has a pipe leak underground and they have to fill it constantly with a hose and that barely keeps up. Oh well.

Some other observations:

The snorkeling is pretty mediocre. We checked out several of the coral heads just offshore (primarily to the right). Not a lot of wildlife, but lots of interesting hard structure, soft coral and sea fans.

There are only 4 lounge chairs on the beach and they’re pretty worn out. One old palapa for shade, but the roof has been torn off – so no shade. The little beach hut on top of the dunes was filled with tons of beer bottles and broken glass.

In the villa itself, everything worked except for the water pressure, which was really bad. Not enough to even remotely rinse a dish and it took a while to rinse shampoo out of one’s hair.

The pool at the villa is very small and frankly not that appealing to enter. Jacuzzi is not a Jacuzzi, but rather just a small baby pool. They need to clean a little better as well as the infinity drop off pool on the other side as well.

Roads are really, really worn out from the villa down to the beach and Sky Bar. This place has a lot of potential, but the owners will need to spend some money and also keep things up better at the beach and pool in particular.

In conclusion, we have been to the Bahamas several times - many times to the Exumas and the Abacos, but it was our first trip to Eleuthera. This is our first time in May and it seems that we were in the middle of 3+ week rainy/cloudy spell. We realize the weather in the Bahamas is always a crap shoot, but it certainly was ironic that where we live (Charleston, SC) has been sunny for the last 10+ days. Overall, the beaches that we visited were gorgeous like Twin Coves and French Leave. I’m sure we would have enjoyed the trip a lot more if the sun had been shining more than it did.

We are very sorry about the pool closure. There was a serious leak and we had no choice but to drain the pool on an emergency basis and make the repair. The pool is now repaired and back to normal.

The water pressure problem was due to a clogged filter which was replaced. The water pressure on the property is adequate, but the town water occasionally contains sediment which can quickly clog a filter and result in low water pressure. If this happens, the filter can be changed and the problem fixed immediately if management is notified.

Additional beach chairs are on order and coming soon.

The bottles and glass from that event were removed.

The house is huge, spacious, modern and beautiful. The villa we stayed in had beautiful views, spacious rooms, luxury appliances and fixtures, and a great layout. The only nit picky downsides were the outside pool furniture and cushions were really ratty, old and dirty, so we refrained from using them, there is ZERO water pressure, there weren't any extra blankets or linens, needed a bucket of water by the front door to rinse your feet of sand before going inside, a lot of the hardware in the bathroom is broken and needs to be replaced, and the landscaping (or lack there of) was just plain ugly.
