The staff were the most friendly and helpful people I have ever come across. No task was too much for the head staff member, Genie. She was so helpful with organizing tours, and other arrangements. Very funny, happy and delightful people. The rooms were spacious and clean. Housekeeping would come around every morning to clean up your room. The hotel...

This was the perfect hotel for our trip to Grand Bahama. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the prices for the room and the food at the restaurant were extremely reasonable. It was in a good location - away from the hussle and bussel, but still close enough to walk to Port Lucaya. This hotel was also in...

I contacted Bell Channel for a quote for 5 nights and 8 dives for$600. The dive shop Carrabean Divers is on the site. When I got there the dive shop said "sorry, I have no other divers so I can't take you out.. This really left me in a bad state as the purpose of the trip was diving. He...

A week with Liz and her staff made the island experience absolutely wonderful. Our group was treated like royalty. The rooms were cleaned daily and any requests were met with a smile.

First, what I always like to do is stay at the best value. This Bell Channel Inn is definitely a great value. I am always prepared to accept or overlook a few things that maybe you would expect at a less expensive venue, but here I really did not have any issues at all, room was clean, water was hot,...

Bell Channel is located in Lucaya, a short drive to Port Lucaya and beautiful Bahamian beaches. Rooms are large but spartan. Staff bends over backward to be helpful. The restaurant is upstairs and overlooks the canal. Breakfast was good but $2.25 for a cup of coffee and no refill is not a good thing. There were two huge annoyances during...

My boyfriend and I picked Bell Channel Inn because it was economical and not too far from Port Lucaya. You can definitely take the bus and/or taxis to Port Lucaya, but if you want to save on transportation money and don't mind a little exercise, it's only about a 20 minute walk from Bell Channel. The best part about this...

At first sight of the place, I was taken aback by the flamingo pink exterior of the hotel with white accents. It gave it a great, welcoming vibe. The courteous staff gave us our keys and we led ourselves to our new home for the next few days. The room was definitely not posh like a 5-star Las Vegas suite,...
