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
I took my family over on our boat from North Palm Beach. Passage took only 3.5 hours. Super easy customs and immigration with an office on site. Spent 4 days exploring the island, scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, and relaxing in the historic Hemingway bar. Location near entrance to the channel was super convenient for jet skis and for watching water traffic from our Boat deck. The marina was top notch and well maintained. What was especially great was the amount of marine life around the docks including bull sharks, spotted eagle rays, and barracuda. We visited the Hilton at the other end of the island and while modern, was no match for Bimini Big Game Club to make you feel like your in the Bahamas. Can't speak to the rooms since we stayed on our boat but we definitely plan to be back by boat and would recommend to anyone.
The name sounds great, but the facilities are a bit tired and the vibe is very low key. It is a small island so the options are limited. Bang for your buck is on par with most places in this type of setting. It is not luxury by any means and the service is average at best. There is a great view of the bull sharks swimming below you in the harbor while you have drinks or dinner. Overall, for budget minded travelers, this is not a bad option.
Since my last report on this property I have returned many times to Bimini, including this property and also other hotels on the island. Since I cross from Florida to Bimini on my boat I want to provide my feedback based on that and what I hear from other boaters like me. Those fortunate individuals that come to this wonderful island long before I did report a Bimini that has changed very much over the years. This hotel represents the "old Bimini" or what keeps on having them come back. This part of the island still represents the character of the island whereas the other side, i.e. the Resort World, is just an exported version of Miami. It is super cool to walk close to the resort and experience the limited experience such a small island can present. To walk into local bars is quite different to the experience one can have in the modern and luxurious part of the island that is part of Resort World and Hilton. The resort itself just feels like a bunch of people hanging out and having a good time on a remote island. There is an island feel to it that just cannot be replicated in the more touristic location. For boaters themselves it remains the top choice with the custom office on site and immigrations (a small police station) down the street. The marina is top notch alongside the dock master who is always there to assist. The rooms are comfortable, not luxurious, but very nice. The overall feel of the resort is one of family and just feeling at home on an island.
Came over on small boat with family from Florida. Was looking forward to a nice shower and and a clean room. Instead - room smelled like mold and plumbing barely worked. HVAC couldn't keep up so room never cooled down. Advertised included Wi-Fi didn't work. Hotel staff didn't seem to care. Maybe it's getting ready to close down and they are losing their jobs? Restaurant at hotel was acceptable. Lots of bugs in room. Even found a pile of dried up what looked like bug wings on floor in room. The island and hotel are infested with tiny biting bugs. I've stayed at a lot of off the beaten path fishing lodges and never experienced something in such disrepair. Was not expecting plush, just clean and with working plumbing for 250+ a night. Place needs to be shut down fumigated and a complete reno. I don't think this hotel would not pass a basic hotel inspection in the US. I really expected more for the price.
Good basic hotel for laid back boaters, family and/or friends with great views, and a fun and friendly marina where you can hang out and look at some beautiful boats, or watch the local sharks (some boaters feed them!) and other marine life. The hotel is old, a bit overpriced but well maintained. Our room was clean and spacious with a balcony with a pool view and comfy lounge chairs, and good a/c (floor is bare concrete). A coffee machine, hair dryer, iron/ironing board etc. were available in the room and housekeeping did a good job cleaning and providing clean towels. The hotel has a decent size pool, game area, and a good restaurant/bar (expect super slow service) with a pretty view. You can rent a golf cart or catch a cab right outside the grounds and go to the casino, or walk to the beach and local restaurants and bars. If you're looking for a fancy place, this is not for you - go to Resorts World.
Friendly and welcoming, with all the basic needs like ice cold drinks and a gorgeous view. You will feel comfortable in another place and time! Even on a holiday weekend, the casual calm make the Big Game Club a quiet refuge from civilization.
This hotel is extremely old. The grounds, marina and front office and maintained nicely for the age of the property. However, the rooms are horrible and extremely overpriced, we paid $250 a night. See my pictures and be the judge. The service not great either, they have a restaurant on grounds that is also very overpriced and the food is average. It's in the old very poor area of town. Save your money and go to the nice resort area on the north side of the island, the Hilton is the place to be. Oh and the wifi is only reachable near the office. Nothing in the room. Stay away from Big Game!
