Will never return to the fabulous Hilton in Bimini. Pools too cold to swim in. EVERYONE there complaining. Huge problem when you come with kids. And adults also complaining. Extremely poor way to treat customers. Everything else was great!
Trying to book a weekend getaway with the kids and the process has been nothing but FRUSTRATING! Let’s start with the booking process. Ended up going through the hotel directly as the prices, taxes and hotel fees quoted for Villas through Expedia were almost double the rate at the resort. They boast about a huge marina but they have no slips available. The Marina recommended I reserve a slip at another property. What is the point of staying on your property of you cannot accommodate our transportation as well? Then trying to get through to ANYONE at the front desk is worse than trying to reach Comcast. I have been hung up on at least 3 times during the hold process, then transferred to a voicemail line as if I were an employee trying to retrieve mail. This USED to be a beautiful property and great place to vacation as I have been staying at this property for over 10 years. Totally regretting my vacation location choice. Now I am stuck with a reservation (I think as I have YET to receive my confirmation that should have been sent last night) and no place to dock how I planned on getting there. If I wanted to fly, I would have chosen Exuma instead.
For starters, Saturday by 11:30 am the beach had run out of beach towels, the attendant kept saying there will be some available soon because they were being washed. Towels never showed. The front desk assistant manager offers to credit the resort fee because of the towel issue. To my surprise, my card was charged the resort fee Sunday after we checked out. The Hotel is beautiful, but the island is way better. To summarize, I go to Bimini for the beaches and the fun, not this hotel. RWB is overpriced and the staff does not go above and beyond like say in Vegas or Puerto Rico. There are other options to stay and will be using them.
We boated to Bimini with a group of 20+ boats that left from South Florida. Upon arrival at RWB, I was impressed with the dockage. The docks were very nice, with ample space for larger boats and well laid out. The resort looked nice at first, and we were excited for our 3 night stay. We opted to stay in one of their two-bedroom villas, which are beyond walking distance. We rented a golf cart (Elo 20), which is pretty much the main mode of transportation on the island. Now comes the rest of the story... Our villa (#33123) was a dump. I believe these units are privately owned and rented through the resort, so I will leave open the possibility that this one owner has maintenance issues. The place was very dirty, with stains on the walls in most rooms. The door handle to the master was broken and fell off anytime you tried to open the door. The water pressure was just beyond a trickle, and by the time you finished a shower, there would be 2-3 inches of water that would barely drain. In the spare bedroom, the light fixture was broken and was just placed on top of the television. Furniture on the porch was broken and simply stacked in the corner. In the kitchen, there were no paper towels or kitchen towels. The air-conditioning duct in the second bedroom would not blow air, so we had to sleep with the door open just to stay cool. Our golf cart was way beyond its prime. You had to step on the gas and count to three before it would start up and go. We had serious doubts each time we drove it. The resort is stupid expensive. We ate at both of the restaurants in the main hotel. The first was adjacent to the casino. The food was decent in a bar-food kind of way. The next night, we ate in the main restaurant. My wife and I split their bone-in ribeye. The steak was good, but not even close to the size they had in the menu. At $55.00, this was a ripoff. The next day, before leaving, we ordered from the breakfast menu. Expensive, but not as bad as the buffet. Our order took about 45 minutes to arrive. The thing you need to know in advance is that they add a 18% gratuity and a 7.5% VAT tax to EVERYTHING. Drinks, meals, dockage, golf carts, a cigar at the bar, etc. Further, there aren't grocery stores around, so you need to bring everything you will need. On a bright note, the people there are friendly and helpful. If you go into town, note that this is a very poor area that got walloped by the hurricane last year. Many buildings are boarded up. There is just not that much to see. We did stop at one of two conch bars that we saw. It was outstanding. All in all, Bimini is a beautiful place with wonderful fishing and diving. I don't know what other options you have there, but I hear there are private homes available in other areas of the islands that are nice. This resort leaves a ton to be desired. Given the price and condition, this is just one place to avoid.
If you can get s room book ahead. We used trip advisor & saved 1,200 off a week by wartching for updates. The food is cheaper at locall spots but we ventutred out to the straw market which have 6-7 shops. Everyone, no matter when you went the people are very accomidatimg. We will return!
After yesterday's fiasco in which our Virginia friends had their room given out from under them after their flight was delayed (and yes they called and got email confirmation that the room was to be held and told they had to pay for the missed night, all to no avail) they finally got into a downgraded room from what they reserved and paid for at 6pm only to discover the AC system inoperative. The staff sent a technician 3 hours later who was unable to repair it. They were moved to another room at 1:30 am only to discover the AC system inoperative in that room as well. 27 hours after arriving they still do not have a functional room and have effectively been living out of ours. I am a lifelong Hilton fan and Honors member and this is by far the WORST Hilton hotel I have ever stayed at. Even after the entire issues the staff is nonchalant about it all. As a side note the server staff has been very, very nice. Please, please, PLEASE, do not waste your money on the hotel/resort when there are so many other wonderful options. I guarantee you will be disappointed.
I am an Expat living in Freeport Bahamas. I just returned from a weekend in Resorts World Bimini where I took my wife and three teenage sons for some bonding time and family fun. We stayed at the Villas at the Resorts World manage by Hilton. The check in took almost two hours, the reason no one at the counter to receive and check people staying at the Villas. After 45 minutes line they told us that I need to check in another counter. We got to a Villa that when I checked in I told the that we were five and they only had covers and towels for four. One toilet and one shower were clogged and maintenance took six hours to do something about it. The water coming out of the shower and sink faucets was brown at its best. The towels was another story. For the $499.00 per night you expect a bit more. Mattresses on the beds at least have 10+ years, the lord was a better option for the back and beck. The food and service in the restaurants were good yet more expensive than anything I have seen before and believe me I have been traveling 70-80% of my time for the last 37 years and I have seen almost everything. At check out today I was charged in addition to VAT and other government taxes, they charged $100.00 per day for the resort fee. When I asked about that they told me that this was for the use of the pool, towels, beach, and facilities of the resort. This just was too much for me. Any other hotel in the world that I have stayed had never charge me for using the facilities of the same place I'm staying. Honestly if you want to spend time in paradise, Please DO NOT go to Resorts World Bimini. This is going to be a hold up and at the end the tell you thank you and smile. After been here and seen the place, there are better and cheaper options with better service and working bathrooms.
Just came back from Bimini and stayed at Hilton Resort, What a beautiful Hotel from the pools to the lobby the rooms , restaurants and the Casino. Now the Staff at this hotel need to be work on theres only hand full of them that are very nice From Peaches at the check in to Leroy at the lobby bar, But every other place from the restaurants at the Tides , Sushi Bar , The Hemingway , The Pizza Place, All these place they just rude and have and awful attitude you ask for something they get upset you say thank you to them you get no response house keeping I ask for towels it took 1.5 hours to get them. Other than that a beautiful Island beaches are awesome when you go to town everyone is nice and welcome you in , Ive been to Bimini 3 times and never had a problem in town very nice people
I read about people having issues with fraudulent charges on their CC's, but I didn't expect it to happen to me. I checked my credit card and $420 was charged to my credit card for something I didn't purchase. I immediately notified my credit card company. I will not stay here again, I also found a mosquito in my soup at the restaurant near the lobby (the one to the right). Half of the people were friendly and the other half were miserable. I would not recommend this place. Sorry to say because it's beautiful. Word to the wise- monitor your credit card charges afterwards. VERY SHADY.
This is an excellent resort on North Bimini, the best on the Island. Service was fantastic. Friendly employees and friendly guests, too! Lots of food choices at the resort, and several close by on the Island for a more authentic Bahamas experience. But where ever you go, don't expect cheap. Everything is imported to the Island. A beer is $7 plus VAT plus tip. A very ordinary glass of wine is $13++. Locally caught grouper was $36 on the resort property (it was excellent). An 8 oz. filet mignon runs $85 (and everything is ala carte). At the resort, if you're a wine drinker your best bet is happy hour in the lobby; 5-8PM prices are 50% of normal for select wines. A $22 glass of Rose is "only" $11. A glass of Mark West Pinot (usually priced at what you can buy a bottle for in the US) goes from $13 to $6.50. Again, plus, plus. Bring your own wine in a checked bag. The checked bag fee is nothing compared to the markups. BTW, the only liquor store we saw was closed on Sunday. The casino is relatively small, but nice. We're not big gamers, but dropped $200 in the $1 slot machine in less than 10 minutes. Lots of vendors around renting golf carts. We paid $50 for a half day, that was enough time to see the Island. This trip was just one day, basically an exploratory trip. We'll go back (but will bring our own wine).
