On return form 16 days in Cuba, this place was fabulous. Two room suite-Tile Room. However, the restaurant-the best place on the island-was just that. I wish to be carefully sincere here; if you eat in average to good places, this may be a top choice, but is is extremely over priced for what you get. Remember, you are in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, I read some reviews that stated the staff was rude, we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly at every encounter, we did not have any unpleasant interactions. They would ask to do things for you! Our housekeeper was disappointed we didn't need our room cleaned so she went and got us... More

Worst experience of my life. If I could give it one star, I would. I wanted to go to a nice restaurant while in Nassau and I was told this was close to the Hilton downtown. While waiting for our food, I took a swim. The girl that I was with (that I just met) got sick and left. When... More

We were early to the chocolate tour so we stopped in to see if we could take a look at the lobby area. The hotel itself is impressive and beautiful, however the staff person just stared at us, and did not even answer us when we asked how to get to the chocolate shop for the tour. We went to... More

I'll never forget our stay here. You know how the typical all-inclusive Caribbean resorts tend to blend together after a while? Not so for Graycliff. The grounds were gorgeous and we truly enjoyed the architecture and feeling of being in an old estate almost as much as we enjoyed the powdery sand. We will be back for sure!

The grounds are beautiful. The staff and owners are extremely friendly. The cigars are fantastic. The chocolate is beyond words. I always stop in while in Nassau. The history of this place is amazing, you will enjoy it.

The weekend of August 6th 2016, we were looking to do something different. We spent all day on Saturday rolling cigars at the cigar factory with the help of Alli (with an "I"), making chocolate bars (and eating them too), enjoyed an amazing dinner at the Humidor Churrascaria and then received a grand tour of the incredible wine cellar.

A step back in time versus some of the newer restaurants in Nassau and Atlantis. Experiential dining , start with a pre dinner cocktail in the piano bar with big leather sofa and old world style. Stick to one cocktail, costs add up quickly. If you can look past the expense , the menu is extensive, food is rich, indulgent... More
