Review of Castaways Resort and Suites Grand Bahama Island

My review of Best Western Castaways Resort & Suites
The Best Western Castaways in Freeport, was ok for my first trip to the Bahamas, however, I do not plan on staying there again. Although the hotel is only a short ride from the airport, it is not close to the only touristy area that the island
offers-Port Lucaya. The hotel room had a wierd smell to it, which we noticed the first day we checked in and it never left throughout our 6 day stay there. The hotel unfortunately is also close to a nightclub of some sort, and although when we checked in we were told that we were to be given a room where we would not be able to hear the pulsating music, alas it was not so. Our first night there, we were awaken to loud music and laughter, from the nearby club. The hotel Restaurant, which is located on the property, does not offer enough local dishes, instead most items served are American in nature. If I wanted to eat an American breakfast, I would have stayed home! The staff at the Best Western as well as all Bahamians we met during our stay, were all very helpful and friendly, which was a plus.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
To the right of the hotel, there was a bar that served lunch all day and made the best Fish Burger. Also try the local beer Kalik.
