this place is closed due to hurricane storm damage.i stayed here ever year for over 30 years. I'm very sad to say I will no longer enjoy my oasis in the sun.I am sorry for all the people who worked there for do many years are out of a good job

It's difficult to give a high rating to a hotel in Freeport that is not on the beach! While the rooms are dated, ours was clean and very spacious. Staff are great, and if you take advantage of the free bus service to Island Sea Resort, you can get the beach experience. There are scheduled grocery runs, just be prepared for the high prices. There is also an orientation explaining some of the activities that you can participate in to enjoy the local culture. We took advantage of the bon fire. By attending (very non-pressure) time share presentations at other locations, we were able to attend some other excursions at no cost. While many people encourage renting a car, we found the free bus transfers and paying for taxi's to work for us. On our first day we saw two accidents, likely the result of Americans not being familiar with driving on the left hand side of the road.

I don't agree with another reviewer saying it's a roach motel, sure it's not the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, it's a simple hotel. I know what a roach motel is believe me I checked into one in Vallejo, California and checked out 5 minutes later. The staff are really friendly, Stacy, Nettie made us feel at home. Had some problems with the A/C but it was fixed quickly, the extra charge for electricity was $25 but reduce to $20 due to initial problem. I thought there was no wi-fi since I did not see anywhere this mentioned but there is and I clocked it to 10 Mbps download, 0.60 Mbps upload. As others mentioned there is nothing in walking distance, your better off renting a car (used my gps). Be sure to have them contact you with the tour agent Michael, he really is an all around great guy. Friendly, always concerned that you get the best experience out of your stay in the Bahamas.

just bought a few souveniers and browsed ..enjoyed weather and scenery.was first stop on a 4 day cruise out of jacksonville fla..was very 4th cruise i took my 14year old granddaughter --she loves cruising...going again next year...

It is a small resort and yes the golf club is no longer there due to hurricane. No it is nota 5 star resort, but the staff and the people make up for the rest. The first day in people made us feel at home. Michael is awesome and Stacy will do whatever she can to help make your stay comfortable. We had a blast there and you don't have to go far to do anything you want. We would stay there again, because the people are so friendly. The rooms are spacious 2 bedrooms with a full bath in both bedrooms. Kitchen is good size and the dining area and living room area. It is the only heated pool on the island. Very quiet and relaxing at the resort.

The place is a place away from home very quite and have all you need to spend a very relaxing vacation and the driver Michael is awesome he will go out of his way to help you every one from the front desk clerk to the house keeper will recommend this place if you are look for a nice quiet relaxing vacation

Island Resort and Golf Club is a very small "resort" in Freeport. There is no longer a golf club since it was destroyed by the hurricanes in 2004. The area around the hotel is very isolated and run down due to the hurricanes and they have never built it back up again. The resort touts they are within walking distance of the International Bazaar; however, there is virtually nothing left there other than one restaurant, a liquor store and the perfume factory. The rest of the buildings are boarded up and have never been touched since 2004. Island Resort itself is comfortable but the furnishing need some updating and the units are in desperate need of maintenance and some hard core cleaning. The high lime content of the water has corroded the sinks and faucets leaving ugly stains. They have updated many of the small appliances in the rooms and all the towels are new and very clean. The staff at this resort make up for the quality of the rooms. Stacy, Nettie and Michael go out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of and responded to all our needs when asked. The pool area is small but it is well maintained and warm. The bar area could use a little work but Michael makes up for it with his great Bahama Mamas! At the time we were there the bar wasn't staffed except for a few hours most evenings. You will have to pay extra for power if you exceed a certain amount of kilowatt hours so make sure you check in with the front desk periodically. It can get expensive!

This was not top of the line accommodations but it surely was not the worse. You make the vacation how you'll like it. The staff was very helpful and nice. Be sure to go to the orientation with Michael and he'll fill you in on everything you need to know and will go out of his way to make your stay an enjoyable one! If you want rest and relaxation it's great, if you need activities and excitement it's just a short ride away by shuttle bus, cab or your own rental car. The units are very spacious and comfortable. A home away from home. Yes, there's no golf club, unfortunately they lost it through a terrible hurricane. And for those who have experienced this in your state or other parts of the world, you'll understand. So, if you want to experience the culture of Bahamians it's there, if you want some night life it's there, if you're a beach bum it's there,snorkeling, fishing, diving it's there -- a drive away. Overall, I had a great time!

NO Security, NOT A RESORT, ONE pool fits 10 and it would be FULL. Pay for electricity. A/C not working; refrigerator HOT; no ice machine on premises; no golf course to be seen; We checked in at 4 pm and checked out at 5 pm!

had a great winter at Island Resort ,The staff is great they go out of their way to help. the pool is one of the few heated pools on the island and very clean . I love this place so much I bought an other week on a resale. cant wait to go back. out of the way with free shuttle to the beach. old but very clean.
