Not a 4 Star Hotel

I don't know how this hotel rates 4 stars. It is not a 4 star hotel. The rooms are old and are actually rusting! The plumbing in the bathroom is corroding and the fiberglass shower/tub was sloppily installed leaving a crumbling drywall seam around the top. The tile flooring looked filthy and the grout was badly stained. The room had a fridge that wouldn't close well and the humidity created condensation that ran out onto the floor. The light fixtures are made of painted steel and are rusting. Ditto with the door. The sliding balcony door required a piece of PVC pipe as a lock or block from opening. The railing on the balcony had rotted and was recently repaired with a combination of new unpainted wood and salvageable wood. The staff at this hotel is wonderful though, as are most of the Bahamian people. The location is at the far end of Port Lucaya and that's right where you want to be. Port Lucaya has all of the touristy vendor stalls as well as duty free shopping and restaurants. A free water taxi can take you to the Taino Beach, which is one of the best beaches on the island. If you scuba dive, underwater explorers is right next door. The irony is that I chose this hotel based on the 4 star rating but I could have chosen an actual 4 star hotel nearby for only slightly more money. I would urge *rbitz to change this rating immediately.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

There is a supermarket not far from the Port Lucaya area. You can catch a public bus in front of the police station for $1.25 per person and it will take you right to it.

Nice Getaway

Stayed in the king suite, really nice, relaxing. & inviting. The daily pastry & fruit delivery and the espresso machine was an added plus,. Close proximity to nearby shopping, entertainment & restaurants. Quiet & relaxing, exactly what I wanted. The only downfall, the lighting in the room was extremely dim, could be a lot brighter..

Perfect Location for Wedding Party

What a delightful place to stay! The beautiful, charming colorful building were reminiscent of a village. The suite rooms were large and open, with plenty of light from the balcony. There were several pool options, though some were closed due to the lower number of guest at this time of year. The staff was wonderfully attentive, especially the bar staff and the young woman at the breakfast bar in the morning. Being so close to the marketplace allowed you to wonder, yet the noise wasn't a disturbance. Lastly the views of the marina and the bay were spectacular! I'd go back right now if I could.

I'd recommend dinner on the Aquarium Dock at Sabor. It's an amazing dining experience to be out on the water at sunset.

There were a few things that needed attention (broken pool umbrellas, unpainted exterior trim) but all in all it was nice, clean, felt safe, food and drinks @ restaurant were delicious, its in a great location and the staff was very friendly and informative!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Have the server repeat your order. We were there for a week and almost every order came out incorrectly. At first it was annoying, due to the fact that we were all speaking the same language, but after a while it became comical. We started taking bets on what would be right or wrong with the orders!

a short getaway

The water taxi is what made all the difference. We are beach people and this was a quick fun way to get there. Also loved the comfey chairs at the pools.

Lovely Get Away

Stayed for a week and had a great, relaxing time. The hotel is conveniently located near the Port Lucaya Marketplace which offers lots of shopping, restaurants and other activities. The hotel is very nice and offers just enough on property but not so much that you don't want to leave. It allows you to go out and experience the island - including a short ferry boat ride to Taino Beach. The room was adequate nothing too special. The only thing that would have been nice is a free continental breakfast. They offered a buffet breakfast but charges $19/person which seemed high. Other than that I would definitely recommend staying at Pelican Bay.

Adequate

This hotel has a good and convenient location. It is tired and urgently needs to be freshened with paint, upgrade in fixtures, and lighting. I sense that it has taken a serious hit with the economy and as a result maintenance has been cut back. The location is very convenient within an easy walk to the market and restaurants. I would not go back in its current condition.

A week Getaway

It is definitely a resort hotel...Not normal configuration. Aging to a large extent, but well kept for the most part.... Very good poolside bar and restaurant, but lacking nearly all other major services, such as even a gift shop or sundry shop. There are others close by, but require walking. The Flying Fish, adjacent to Pelican Bay was one of the highest quality restaurants for food and knowedge and service, anywhere in the Caribean. Rivals good Vegas restaurants... Beach walk too far and disapointing... But was a pleasant stay, although a little cool. Staff very friendly but on "Island Time"...
