DO NOT GO TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!! My experience at this location of Hilton was absolutely subpar to say the least, more-so insane. I was on a business trip for the HILTON and they still charged me $217 for drinks/food at a restaurant which I never visited!!!!!! Someone gave my room number and that’s all it took for them to charge it to my debit card!!!!! No signature, no name, nothing!!!!! I have called everyday since to dispute, and request a refund to no avail. Yet, NO ONE will return my calls nor help me!!!! I asked for a manager the day I left and was told that no manager was available and that they had to charge me first before they would even consider a reimbursement. WTHeck!!! This place is so unprofessional and I don’t want anyone to go through a similar experience. Any help here is greatly appreciated, please, I don’t know what to do!!!
Very close to Miami so is the perfect weekend gateway. Very Nice hotel, great rooms, clean and well decorated. few things thou the A/C on my room was not working and they tried to fix it but still was hot. The security box did not work, and on top it was a Reality TV weeding and they made terrible noise until very late, I called the front desk and it was not possible to make them down the noise. The beach is beautiful and the food at their restaurant is very good, even though I paid the $25 resort fee, there was not beach towels available until about an hour I got there. Best you can do is rent a golf car ($75 per 24 hours) to go to the beach and tour the island. The ferry is fast, but a lot of people got sea sick so it was kind of uncomfortable, however there is sea sick pills at no charge. Other than that is very easy way to get there. I think the next time I try to flight in.
1. eat outside of the hotel in town- better food more for your money and better service 2. do your beach towel check right way or it a struggle to get towels 3. 18% gratuity even on grad n go- the misconception is people not wanting to tip- the problem is the poor service because either way they will get tip. They truly do not take pride in providing good service. 4. drinks ARE expensive- buy a bottle at the store in lobby or bring your own in your luggage if you are a drinker or with a large group- that is allowed! 5. there is a bus to take you around the resort- but outside the resort rent a golf cart or $5 per person in a tax (there were 10 of us) or 2 golf cart. It is better to spend your money with the locals- they were nice, provided better service and is more for your money 6. the hotel was very beautiful- I give them that and there is huge lobby that while you wait to check in change into your bathing suits, check in your luggage and go to the pool or go into town eat there.
Great weekend here. the hotel and rooms were very clean and well maintained. The restaurants are lacking in variety but plenty of local spots to try. They dont tell you that you have to take a water taxi for $5pp then another small ferry $8pp to get there one you land at the airport. All in all great stay
Just a 2 hour ferry ride from Miami makes a trip to Bimini something like a stay-cation for Miami residents. Definitely the low season with several restaurants and pools closed on the Resorts World Property. However, a dinner at Hemingways (the restaurant adjacent to the Casino), drinks at Monkey Business (the bar at the rooftop infinity pool), the Hilton-perfect room, and the amazing Luna beach (the water is as blue as the photos) made up for our disappointment regarding the closures and a failure to orient us to the property and its services. A note to those who take advantage of low season, Mondays and Tuesdays are really slow days on the property, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays you'll have lots of day-trippers coming over for just one day. If you enjoy walking, take a walk down Luna Beach as far as you can go, the beach changes with lots of rocks and tidal pools OR take a walk around the property, we saw rays, sergeant major and trumpet fish along the sea wall in Fisherman Village and as we walked over the bridge near the hotel we spotted a huge starfish.
My wife and I flew Silver Airlines from Fort Lauderdale and in 18 minutes we arrived at the Bimini Airport. We took a shuttle to a pier for $5 apiece. Then we took a fast ferry to the Hilton on the North Island for 8$ a piece. We paid a little extra for a top floor room with a lagoon view. Our room came with breakfast that included a tasty buffet. The staff was very nice and the food was excellent. We contacted M & M Golf Cart Rentals to reserve a cart for the next day for $50. We had fun driving around the island (remember to drive on the left side of the road). We visited beautiful beaches, places where Earnest Hemingway had been, craft shops, etc. The high point of our trip was the Dolphin House located on a side street in Alice Town where we meet Ashley Saunders . He lives there and continues to add to the beauty of the place. It is hard to describe how unique his home is so I’ll mention one of many things he has : license plates on his walls from all 50 US states. We plan to return to Bimini. Every person we came in contact with was very friendly and helpful. One tip - we were told many times not to visit during Spring Break or a holiday weekend because it would be very crowded.
Elite airways perfect flies 2 times a week to Bimini from EWR fly Sunday’s and Thursdays what else I could said it was o time and we were pick up by a Van to a Hotel Boat and received with a Bahamas Mama
We enjoyed our time at The Hilton. Some of the employee's were not so friendly, espically check in. Our room was clean and nice. The AC seemed to shut off each night and it would get hot in the room. Luna beach was set up nicely however service was the very slow. Food was good throughout the resort. Grilled mahi at The Tides was my favorite dish! Sushi was decent but not worth the price. The bartenders on the rooftop bar, Monkey Business, were excellent. "Hollywood" or Alfred took care of us during our entire stay. Drinks and views were excellent. Their hospitality gave us a real feel for the locals and made our stay so much fun! We will definitely be back to visit them! Bimini's beauty is mesmerizing. Overall I would recommend it we would love to come back.
My husband and I recently returned from a vacation at the Resorts World Hilton in Bimini, Bahamas. I have to admit we’re less than please. Travel: Elite airlines was wonderful. The ferry ride was ideal. Really easy to get from point A to point B on arrival and departure from the island. Arrival: We thought we had found an amazing deal for this resort through the resort itself. It was for four nights and three days. The price was right. We were excited. Upon arrival to the resort at check in we were told that we did not have a room for the allotted time that our package dictated. Our flights were on the right dates and our confirmation read the proper dates yet the hotel told us that we did not have a room. We did wind up getting a room. The room was the opposite of what we had as a part of our package. We ended up getting two queen beds instead of a king bed with a balcony on the side where the road is when we are supposed to have a Marina view. The most aggravating part of this was the hotel made it seem like we had made a mistake when in reality resorts world had made the mistake. We had the confirmation. To make matters worse they wouldn’t accommodate us or change anything. They said we would have to wait until the next day to change rooms. We really felt like that was unacceptable. Later on we also discovered that the hotels only half booked. We were given attitude. We decided to let the vacation continue and not focus on a horrible introduction to the resort. Little did we know we were in for more hiccups. The Resort: The resort was nothing as it was advertised. The restaurants were small and only open on certain nights. There were only three restaurants available. Each restaurant was constantly packed. The resort was a zoo. The lobby and sitting areas were filled to the brim. The adult only pool and bar was loud with children running around. There is no bartender in sight for at least 30 minutes. One of the pools didn’t even have the bar open! The resort had nothing to offer other then a casino. Fisherman’s Village? Forget it. The stores and restaurants there are only open on the weekends. Luna beach bar and restaurant at night for dinner and fun? Forget it! Only open on Friday and Saturday. They don’t tell you in your great deal package that you’re not going have any of the amenities promised in the advertisements. Oh yes and don’t forget the $25 a day resort fee that’s not built into the packages. It seem like the fun was only had strictly on weekends. Don’t rely on the concierge he’s no help. Also don’t plan on walking into the resort and getting on any of the trips promised in the brochures or on the Internet. One of the snorkeling trips wasn’t available with openings until a week after we arrived. Nobody ever told us to book ahead of time if we wanted to make it on any of the activities available. We had to go off resort for activities which was actually fine in the end. I know with children it’s easier stay at Pool’s but we highly suggest going to Luna beach daily. It was a lot of fun there. Grounds: Though there were a lot of things unavailable and not open the grounds were beautiful. Everything was clean and well-kept. The places on the grounds of the resort were very nice though most were not open. You really could walk anywhere you wanted to go which was a plus. Rooms: The rooms are also beautiful. They’re laid out really nicely. No complaints there. Though the room wasn’t what we were promised it was still really nice. We didn’t spend much time in the room anyway. The beds are comfortable. It’s recommended not to drink the water. Staff: Hit or miss. Most of the servers were really fun and kind. The housekeeping staff was also very nice. The shuttle drivers were the most helpful and informative people on staff. They were also very nice and accommodating. As for the front desk staff? Not always service with a smile. And don’t ever think the customer is always right. Not here at least. Bring cash: Make sure you bring cash and small bills. Also bring your own snacks and alcohol if you want to save a crap load of money. They have a nice convenient store right on the ground so you can go and get things as well. We picked up snacks and drinks for the beach there. They have any toiletries or medications you may have forgotten. They really do have everything. So don’t worry, if you forgot it you can most likely find it here. Very convenient. They do take credit cards but working with cash is way easier. The whole island works mostly off the cash. Tips included: 18% tip is included in resort restaurants/ bar bills. Keep an eye out. Also if you’re using a credit card make sure to keep an eye on your bill after you’ve departed from the resort. We got some random charges. We had to call the hotel to clear them up but they are pretty accommodating. Golf Carts are your Ticket: The best thing that resort had offered that wasn’t even a resort amenity was golf carts. If you had a golf cart you could go anywhere on the island. It gave us the freedom to go on and off the resort as we pleased. Now, there are many places you can get golf carts. We went to Sue and Joy’s. Though it was the most convenient place to get the carts they constantly broke down and we had to go back a few times daily to get new ones. It wound up being a stressor. I would suggest making sure they check the cart first. They are accommodating. Island/safety: The island was safe, beautiful and very easy to navigate. The locals are very nice. And the restaurants off resort are safe to eat at. They were very cleanly. Again make sure you carry cash with you. Places to go: Since there’s not much to do on the resort you’ll have to find things to do off the resort. Once you get the hang of it you’ll have no trouble. We recommend checking out the Big Game Club Resort. There you can watch the staff feed sharks. If you have the guts you can even get in the cage with the sharks! Also the food is phenomenal and the staff are a blast.Stewart’s Couch Shack was amazing. Joe’s is also good. CJ’s looks scary from the outside but it’s great. We suggest you just get out there and hunt. It’s also helpful to ask other guests on the resort what they suggest. You also save a boatload of money. Conclusion It was obvious to us that the resort was experiencing some growing pains. The resort locations that seemed incomplete currently we believe in a few years down the road at will really be up-and-coming. I don’t know if we will return. I also don’t know if we recommended at this time. There was a lot of small stressors along the way. Air on the edge of caution when booking. Know what to expect. And buyers beware.

Gorgeous 5 star hotel. The casino is small but has plenty of good machines. Multiple high definition TV's including a big screen by Ernest Hemingway restaurant. I enjoyed a couple of days at Luna Beach taking some sun and rented a golf cart. The employees are absolutely wonderful and dedicated to a customer's needs. It also has a few swimming pools with fine restaurants.
