Rooms are spacious with a plethora of clean towels. We didnt really know what we were getting into with this being our first vacation booking through Armed Forces Vacation Club .com. We were here during the off season in August, atleast I think that's the off season for the Bahamas. The resort has a bar/dining area and the food is pretty tasty but the menu is small. The drinks they pull from the cooler aren't that cold, more like lukewarm. The pool area is nice with a swim up bar and a hot tub. They sell cigarettes at the bar but no menthols. We purchased a room with two beds and one was lumpy and the other was perfect. Taxis are very expensive at the price of $25 to go anywhere. Solomons grocery store was expensive also, spending $150 on just a handful of items. Shopped at Cost Right grocery store also for a handful of items to last 3 day at a price of $115. The Cost Right is further away so the taxi ride was $20 there $20 back. Everything on The Great Bahamas Island seems to be more expensive but we made do. Had to pull $500 dollars twice from the ATM at the Lucaya marketplace for taxi rides and food. Manta ray beach is ok, found some glass in the water 😬. You will not see manta rays, stingrays, iguanas, fish, conch shells, coral life, turtles or any wild life at all there. It was drastically different from the US Virgine Islands witch was flourishing with all the above. Your best bet is to rent a vehicle instead of waisting tons of money on taxis. You will slent thousands and thousands of dollars on taxis if you dont, since they dont have Uber here. There are mosquitos here also and you will have your blood sucked from you more than once at night. You will have diarrhea also atleast once. The staff were very nice and did not pester us to buy a time share once we told them we were not interested. On two separate occasions individuals out on the town and the beach approached us and asked if we would like to buy weed, witch we declined. Make sure to put lots of sunscreen on and reapply after you get out of the water and at every chance you get. Better to be that person with lots of sunscreen on than to be sunburnt and have to stay inside until it turnes into a tan.
Location was great, it was 30-45 minutes tops to everything. They offered a shuttle, at a discounted rate, that ran to specific spots during the week (beach, grocery, etc). The rooms were clean and included the basics for kitchen ware. There was a small fee for wifi but not bad. They were in the process of doing some upgrades but construction wasn't too bad. The tile on the pool was falling off and was a little grimy, but not horrible. Overall, a great place to stay!
A beautiful place to see ! you must rent a car and then you can go everywhere ! the most beautiful beach in the world are there , you have to go at the top tree of our beach : 1. old bahamas resort beach (it's a resort but if you go dinner to the restaurant they let you go on the beach) 2. Paradise cove 3. Coral Beach 4. Gold Rock Beach You can snorkeling no. 1 and 2 the no. 3 and 4 it's just a beautiful paradise ! Sorry for my english !
Great time and relaxing only 40 Min. from Fort Lauderdale. Highly Recommend the Owls Hole and the Nate' place at Mana Ray Bay. Coral Beach is the best place to visit for swimming,snorkeling. Take a cab no need to rent a car
I booked this place for a week in June through my Vacany Rewards program which I will rip in another review. My husband, son, brother and nephew went down for a boy's trip. The place is in terrible condition...worst than motel 6. The property is in need of major repairs. What has been fixed was patched up with mismatched cabinets and bathroom fixures etc. Holes in walls, broken furniture, no dishwashers etc. They said it was hard to find and since the island was damaged from a storm a few years ago..there is nothing there... but the beach. No casino, shopping, and the fishing guides are scam artist. These were 4 guys..but they were so disgusted they arrived on Saturday and Tuesday they were back in Fort Lauderdale. Resort had no activities! Everything was overpriced. I read reviews before I booked but they did not have a good experience.
This timeshare exchange resort was found very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. Though some previous reviews gave poor impressions, I found it was better than average in every respect - a pleasurable experience all week. The staff were friendly and helpful, the apartment well designed and kept up. Two pools allowed fun in the sun without crowding. The food in the restaurant was quite good and reasonably priced, the gift shop owner most pleasant. There is nothing bad to report...it was all fine!
The people at the resort were amazing all week long - so happy and helpful and the harbor is quite relaxing. Hattie, Sherie and Klem and the rest of the staff made you feel like family. My friends and family truly enjoyed our stay and it was hard to leave :)
Good value for your money. We rented a one bedroom apartment for 2 nights on short notice along with a boat slip. The space was clean and well maintained, the bed comfortable, AC nice and cold. We really didn’t spend much time there other than to sleep. Really only 3 minor complaints with the apartment itself. The front door has a huge gap underneath and bugs were crawling in. Had to stuff a towel along the length of the door to keep them out. The rear slider needs adjustment as it is very difficult to move. Finally there is a step up from the living/dining area up into the kitchenette which is a trip hazard. As for the grounds, they were well maintained, the pool looked nice and had a swim up bar, we however didn’t utilize the pool. The food at the restaurant was very good but service was poor and we roasted as they didn’t have the AC on the first night despite it being hotter inside than outside. They did turn it on the second night but took a long time to cool off. Erica at the restaurant was very nice and helpful. Most of the staff, with a few exceptions were unfriendly and seemed unwilling to find answers to questions we had. Getting in and out of the slip and canal was no problem, plenty of depth for our boat. We would definitely stay again.
Atmosphere was wonderful and beautiful. Not toally impressed with the room as when we got to see the renovated rooms! People are so welcoming. Met alot of wonderful people! Clem, Hattie and Sherie and so many other people. We miss u and can not wait until 2021 to come back! From your Family The Thurmonds from California!! Owner of the place was so nice!
I want to start this review by saying that Ocean Reef Yacht Club can be consider one of the best places to stay in Freeport, especially if you are looking to spend quality time and relax. I arrived on 15 June 2019 at around 11:30 in the morning, check in is not until 4PM but the front desk was able to check us in not even 20 minutes after we got there. We reserved a two bedrooms apartment for a week. This apartment have everything you need to make you feel at home, you only have to stop by the grocery store and get some groceries. The resort provides transportation to and back to the grocery store for 8 dollars a person round trip. There are two pools right next to the inlet which is beautiful, and a restaurant/bar on site which serve decent food for a reasonable price. If you are in to fishing, which is the thing that I enjoyed the most during our stay at Ocean Reef, you can fish right on site. This was for me the perfect spot in Freeport. I am already planning our next trip to this same places but this time I will get a townhouse three bedrooms. Thank you Ocean Reef
