Recent guest reviews

It was a very nice place to stay. We stayed 2 weeks. The staff was terrific. The beach across the private drive was very clean. I will stay there again if it is available.

Our stay was wonderful. The Villa is set just far away from Freeport to be almost secluded, but a two minute drive brings you right back. The staff was very welcoming and helpfull. There is a great beach right across the street, and the staff had beach equipment for us to borrow. Our room was much more than we expected. It was essentially a two bedroom apartment with two patios. When we walked in we thought it was a mistake, I asked twice if it was really ours at the price we paid. Granted it was an upgrade, but that choice was made before we even arrived. The pool, while small, is just right for kids to splash about in while using the gas or charcoal grill provided. Bottom line, whenever we come back to the Grand Bahamas, this will be our first choice.

I had a studio on the second floor, with a kitchenette and balcony facing toward the beach. Could've used a coat of paint, and the bathroom was disappointing. The refrigerator smelled terrible, in spite of a box of baking soda. Front door barely locked (no deadbolt), which is ok I guess given the remote location. A few positives: The beach is literally only 100 yards away. Very quiet, on a dead end street so no through traffic. Air conditioning worked well, which was useful because of the humidity more than the temperature. Only stay here if you have a car - there is nothing within walking distance except the beach.

Loved our stay and the staff was super nice. It's literally on the beach. The beach is beautiful and one of the least crowded beaches on the island. The villas have a pool in case you don't like the ocean.

First thing to understand, this is not a hotel, it is a villa. A villa means a fully outfitted apartment, which makes it perfect for families, groups of friends, or self-sufficient couples. However, if you are expecting an all-inclusive hotel or even an on-site restaurant, you are wrong. I loved my 5 days here! My boyfriend and I stayed here and were upgraded to a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, which gave us tons of space. The staff were incredible and gave us a ride to the nearest grocery so we could stock up our kitchen. The villas are overlooking a gorgeous canal with turquoise water where you can actually fish. Fishing poles and bait are available to you for free. Then literally across the street (aka 45 second walk) is the gorgeous Xanadu beach. This beach is very secluded and you will only see other Dundee Bay Villa folks there. The villas have sun chairs, flippers, goggles, and umbrellas that you can borrow which makes the beach like your second home. The pool on Dundees property is beautiful but we didn't actually swim in it because the beach was so irresistible. Tips on Freeport, rent a car! You must be 25 to rent, which we were not, which meant we were stuck cabbing most everywhere. A cab from the airport to Dundee Bay Villas should only cost about $18, more and you're being ripped off. A cab from Dundee Bay to Port Lucaya Market should be around $14/$16. Port Lucaya is fun and super touristy so when you are sick of isolation, head over there. If you arrive late, most food places are closed. Luckily, we made friends with a guy who drove us to the Pepper Pot which is a fabulous little 24/7 food store off the main highway. It was only $2.25 for a heaping amount of mac n cheese. Overall, great place to stay if you are looking to save money, cook for yourself, and enjoy a peaceful beach. If you are looking for more nightlife/activities, stay here and use the money you save to cab to Lucaya and drink/dance, do watersports over there. Highly recommend, and will absolutely stay there when I come back!

This villa was very run down and unclean. There are no phones in the rooms and the lobby hours are not regular. The pool was stone cold and unusable. The rooms are laid out well and spacious and the villa is located in a nice quiet area, but we would never be able to recommend it.

We swam with the dolphins, snorkeled, went to port lacaya to shop and eat. The fish Fry on Wednesday was fun. Drove to the port where the cruise ships come in, the resturante was expensive but good. You are never more than 10 - 15 minutes away from anything on the island at Dundee Bay Villa.The staff was warm and helpful. We watched the sunrise and set from the back patio. Fed the fish on the back patio everyday.

This is Freeport's best kept secret. We stayed in the studio, next time we will get 1 bedroom. Nothing Glamorous but comfortable. We did see a three bedroom villa and that was beautiful. The staff was very accomodating. If we return to Freeport we will stay here again. If you want quiet and comfort away from the big hotels with all the people this is the place to stay.Rent a car.

This place was amazing, the location and closeness to the Xanadu beach.No complaints. Water was crystal clear and the beach is very private. if want to try cheap and local food.... try native way or beckys, located on right hand side on the way towards lucaya marketplace from international Bazaar. If want to cook sea food then get crabs, lobster tails and snappers for cheap on Queens highway. For groceries go to Saywers fresh market at longwood dr. Scooters cost $40 which you can ride 9am to 5pm. To keep overnight for few days, it cost me $180 for 4 days. Rent it at Lucaya Marketplace, the scooters are good there. International bazaar is no good but Lucaya marketplace seems to be interesting but personally I dint like that much. If you want relaxing private time at the beach and a good place to stay then this is perfect place. Highly recommand Dundee Bay Villas.

We had to travel to Lucaya Port to do anything. There was nothing close by. Rooms were not the best. TV and DVD not working. Dirty in places. The web ad was very misleading. yeas there was a beach down the street. but no chairs no sand just a pile of rocks. I decided on this instead of a cruise to relax by the beach. NOT This was the worst accommadation I have ever had. The price was interesting. On the registration window wall. Prices were listed as $35.00 per week for one bedroom, $45.00 for two bedroom, etc. wow, wish I could have paid that. That was about all it was worth

These are nice units that are very nice and well maintained. The staff is very friendly. There is a nice beach across the street. It is also at a end so there is not a lot of traffic.
