Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
My husband and I traveled to Bimini for the sole purpose of diving with the hammerheads with Neal Watson's Scuba Center (see separate review). This is really the only reason to go to Bimini. There simply is just not much there that is attractive fro travelers. The resort is aging and only moderately maintained. Rooms and communal spaces are not dirty, but not quite clean either. As experienced by other reviewers, I had to get my key reprogrammed every day! The tap water is not drinkable and there was no drinking water provided in the rooms (a standard in most other "resorts" we've stayed in). It is available at the on-site gift shop. Bathrooms are tiny compared to the pretty spacious rooms. Lighting in the rooms is poor. WIFI in the rooms at the far end of the property does not work. You have to go outside and/or get closer to the main buildings. It was fortunate that the weather was cool, as the a/c did not work, other than as a fan. If you go diving in then morning, the restaurant is not open for breakfast beforehand. Really? Yes! We tried to find something to eat in town beforehand and had to make do with pre-packaged and not very fresh danishes. Tthe restaurant is open for lunch and dinner (and in between) and we found the food to be well above average and the service was good. The prices are what you would expect on an island where everything has to be shipped in (in other words, expensive). We shared meals and that was enough for both of us. We thought the crispy fish finger appetizer was a very generous portion. That, paired with a side of their homemade mac and cheese made for a hearty meal. If Sharkies Grill is open, do go there for dinner. They have rum punch specials that are not watered down and the best drink deal around. Again, we ordered one grilled fish meal, asked for an extra ear of corn and then split it. If you are not diving, there really is not much to do at the resort or in town.
This resort is good ! Be aware that’s relatively speaking only ; if you think you are going to get like Atlantis or bahamar or something along those lines then you will be thoroughly disappointed. Bimini is a very tiny island of around 1500 people. The resort will suffice if you are there for fishing or diving or just a beach vacation as the dive shop is located on the resort and so is the marina. In terms of the rooms - cement floors; occasional bug or insect ; tv worked well; ac or heat worked well; sheets and pillows were decent but don’t be shocked if you see some wear and tear. I would stay there again. Small store is on site for basic groceries. Restaurant on site is decent.
This is the best place to stay for Neil Watson's Great Hammerhead experiences. It is clean and well kept and the food is fantastic with a varied menu from lobster, steak, burgers, seafood, and conch. The price of everything is quite high so come prepared. A glass of soda is $3 and a breakfast sandwich is $10. Add to this VAT and 18% tip added in. The resort was $1900 for my wife and I for 4 nights. It is very picturesque and located right next to the dive shop., Everything is a very short walk. Try going out to CJs about 2 blocks from the resort for less expensive island food served on picnic benches on the beach. One complaint was that everyday we had to go to the front desk to get out room key card remade. There is a nice pool but it was too cold when we were there. Rooms are nothing special and do have a safe. Staff was all very helpful.
the location of the hotel was perfect ! My husband did some wonderful dives with hammerhead shark and many other species. Staff was very friendly. we got a free upgrade to a bungalow for my birhtday which was a very nice gesture ! thanks again. it wasn't busy in the hotel because of low season. a remark I have to make is that the cleanlyness in the restaurant wasn't what is should and could have been. the windows were dirty when we arrived and after 10 days they were still dirty... too bad for the nice views on the ocean... I also had my doubts about the floor in the restaurant. The sand and footsteps were still there in the morning so a wet mop once a day is not a luxury in a restaurant. The last days we spent there, there was an awful burning oil smell from the factory not far away. It practically made it impossible to lay by the pool or sit on our terrace. all this said we had a wonderful time in the Big Game Club but for none diving partners such as myself, there's isn't much to do in Bimini.
The hotel is not fancy and it is an old structure but still with good accomodations and close to the main restaurants, bars and shops downtown. Easy to rent a golf car for full day or some hours witch is what you need to see the island. Dive Center in the Hotel for amazing dives and good restaurant but more expensive then in the road because of taxes + gratuity + tip
This hotel / resort might not be super new and it is not the most sophisticated in Bimini. It is however, a perfect place for those seeking great scuba diving, and open sea fishing also. Rooms could be updated, but are very comfortable. The staff is also very friendly. Great on premise restaurants and bars and an incredible view. Bimini Scuba Center is in the same complex, just foots away. A place I definitely want to come back soon.
I stayed here only to go Diving. It’s not a hotel I would ever have chosen as its rather basic. Overall the facilities are tired and in need of a lot of maintenance. Also, more thought needs to go into guests’ needs, eg breakfast opened at 8 (despite stating in the literature that it opened at 7), which is not early enough when you need to be dock-side at 8.30 for Diving. The small shop on-site is woefully under-stocked (did not even sell large bottles of water or milk)
We came during low season immediately after the hurricanes. There was no one here and staff was super attentive. A few property issues and we were moved, but always to better accommodations. It's tough on them-they are operating with a skeleton staff. I think the rooms can use some TLC for sure but they were fine. Overall, the resort was awesome. We enjoyed many meals and drinks on premise, and there were still many options off premise as well. The highlight was diving with their great onsite dive crew. We were able to leave our gear at the dock daily and have had some incredible dives! (Separate review).
We really enjoyed our time at Big Game & Bimini overall. The hotel has bikes they will let you use. We packed a few beers in the bikes basket & rode them a few blocks down to a beautiful beach where we at times, we were the only people there. We had such a great time!
The people that help you to navigate where everything is were very nice and nice place to be when your just trying to relax or go big game offshore fishing hence bimini big game club resort and marina
