Gotta love the new and improved P&P. Same friendly welcome and awesome view over Elizabeth harbour. But with newly renovated rooms and fantastic beds. Stayed twice this winter and enjoyed it. Immensely.

I spent 4 nights in February at this hotel. The room I stayed in was very nice. Beautiful view of Elizabeth Harbour. Nice and comfortable bed. The floor in the room was not clean. Walking around in the room barefoot, my feet were black. I found the restaurant at the hotel VERY expensive. $12 for a couple of eggs! Coffee was $3.75 for a small to go cup. Bar was also very expensive. 4 rum drinks came to over $50. I had prepaid for the room to get the best price, but was surprised by an additional fee of $20 a night. I did get one free drink for this fee. I did go back to the hotel website and found in the fine print that there would be a “resort fee” charged on check in. I dislike this kind of “deception”. Nice room. Beautiful view. Expensive / Overpriced restaurant and bar.

After coming to Exuma for 20 years I cannot tell you how elated I am to see this renovation and overhaul of the restaurant menu. It is now an Italian menu (GM Guido is from Milan), and the Capri salad is to die for. I was also happy to see that they are not making any changes in the little tiny bar that began as a slave kitchen in the 1800s. The most incredibly humble fellow Doc who is a local, has worked at the Peace and Plenty for 50 years and they kept him on. My heart just sings over this every day when I think about him still being here.

The new owners did and outstanding job in renovating the public areas, all in good taste. Fortunately, they left the Slave Bar unchanged.. Others we spoke to were equally pleased with the physical premises. We, as well as our friends were very satisfied with the products of the kitchen, however, more items should be added. One mistake they made, however, was in the pricing of beverages. Highballs and cocktails run 50% higher and soft drinks 100% higher than the market.

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently on our trip to Exuma. Firstly, I have to say that the staff are all very lovely, super happy and welcoming so you cannot fault them. The main reception/dining area has been recently done up and looks fab, you can see they've tried to continue this renovation in the bedrooms but it's lacking slightly in the bathrooms where they old bathroom units remain, and the mouldy foam ceiling tiles are still in place. Saying that, the shower pressure was AMAZING, and the bath was really appreciated as I'd bought my sucky English cold with me so had one evening where that was a godsend - not what you'd expect on a holiday in the Bahamas but I appreciated it none the less - I think usually a shower would suffice. We ate at the hotel restaurant one evening only as going out to the local restaurants held more appeal, however, one night our chosen venue was serving up something a bit odd so we decided to give it a go. It seems clear from the menu they're trying for some sort of Italian fare...it does not translate. The pizza I had was as thick based as a paperback and lacked in flavour. My opinion, do it and do it well, or stick to what people come to the Bahamas for - amazing local cuisine, fresh fish, jerk chicken, prawns etc. Italian doesn't translate I'm afraid when you're surrounded by palm trees, and the local produce is so amazing, why would you try?

We stayed last at Peace and Plenty 4 years ago and can attest to the other recent reviews that the remodel is fabulous. Nice attention to detail, very comfortable room, and a great beach-y vibe all around. Most of the staff is new, but in general, friendly and on the ball. Some important issues to highlight, though, which are mentioned in some of the other recent reviews: Wi Fi and some key logistics. The hotel fee includes Wi Fi but it's only accessible in the lobby. If this is something beyond the hotel's control, this should be listed accurately and reflected in the fee. The other issue guests should be mindful of is transportation. There's really no other way to get around than by car, and we couldn't get one on the day that we planned a day trip around the island. It would be helpful for staff to let guests know how early to book car rentals and be proactive on this front. That all said: the underlying reason for these problems is that the government of the Bahamas choses to serve as a tax shelter for the one percent rather than investing in its people and its infrastructure. Building better roads, sidewalks, bike lanes, and setting up rudimentary bus service where possible -- as well as investing in broadband -- are things that would go along way to boost the economy, including its tourist industry. Sadly, these investments have yet to be made.

If there was a blueprint for the perfect hotel, staff, restaurant , view, comfortable bed, this would surely be it. I have stayed in many hotels, but never in one where ALL the staff were truly exceptional. Nothing was ever to much trouble, Guido the manager constantly making sure that every detail perfect. An amazing chef, beautifully cooked Italian cuisine, wonderful breakfasts, lunch and dinner. Recently refurbished to very high tasteful standard. I want to buy that bed, best nights sleep ever. Thank you so much to all the friendly staff who hugged us when we left and made us feel like family. Son and daughter in law immediately booked to go again at Easter, I will definitely return on my next visit to Bahamas. Just hope it doesn’t get too popular and impossible to get a reservation. Thank you once again.

We honeymooned on Great Exuma in 1994 and returned for the first time in Feb 2018 for a long weekend at the Peace & Plenty. We decided we have rediscovered a place we plan to make our regular spot n the years to come. Since 1994, we have explored the Caribbean, Western Europe, Turkey, South Africa & Tanzania, South America, Australia & NZ and wonderful parts of Asia including the Maldives, Singapore, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing. We were utterly delighted with our stay at the P&P and plan on returning in May with our entire family. As we have grown more experienced in our travel, we prefer smaller & more intimate properties vs. larger resorts. P&P checked this box. The renovated main building & rooms were beautiful. The service - from our arrival through check-out - was warm, personal, attentive and flawless. Their restaurant is run by a wonderful chef from Milano - Guido - and the Italian dishes, with specialities flown in from Italy, were excellent. The bar is small, picturesque and run by friendly and fun local residents full of knowledge. The bar and pool deck overlooks gorgeous Elizabeth Harbour which is a sailing, boating and snorkeling paradise. We rented a boat for the weekend from across the street at Minns Watersports.- just as we did back in 1994. Everything was easy and convenient. And best of all was the extremely reasonable rates for the room and food & drink. I would recommend this place to anyone even considering a visit - couples, families or a buddies fishing weekend. You can thank me after your visit.

The hotel reopened in February after refurbishment and it is absolutely beautiful! Our room was spacious with two extremely comfortable king size beds, a bathroom with bathtub and a private balcony with pool and sea views. The room also offers a fridge, safe, large flat screen TV, Airconditioning and a ceiling fan. It was really quiet at night. All the staff in the hotel are amazing: friendly, attentive and will go out of their way to make sure you are happy and have everything you need. Reception will help you organize all your activities. The restaurant offers a small but really good menu with Italian food. I can highly recommend the club sandwich, it was the best I ever had, everything else was also delicious! We would never stay anywhere else when visiting the Exumas again after the experience at this hotel. It has instantly become one of our favorite places ever!

Pros: The rooms and check-in area was immaculate, the renovations have the place looking new and modern. China the front desk agent and Doc were awesome, gave us great information and were very hospitable. The location is great. Cons: Finding Parking was awful. Staff members and management were seen around property but never once went out their way to greet me, I work in hospitality so I really could not understand this, I would walk pass the bar all the time and they would stand around talking to each other but would never speak to me (perhaps because I was Bahamian..this was very bizarre to me). The wait staff at the bar need a lot more training, I could overhear them confronting each other and also see them drinking leftover drinks behind the bar. The food was really really good but more Bahamian options would be a plus. My television never worked and the wifi was shoddy, also there wasn't a telephone in the room...but we didn't spend a lot of time on property so it wasn't a big deal
