e visited here in March 2022 while cruising on the Carnival Dream. We opted to book through bahamasdaypass.com (89.00 per person) and get our own taxi to the Grand Lucayan Resort. The taxi fare one way was $6.00 per person and the vans are not in good shape, but had air and got us there. Our driver to the resort was pleasant, but our driver back was very angry and somewhat hateful. The Lighthouse Pointe Grand Lucayan was nice upon arrival, and the staff was pleasant. The hotel entrance was marbled and clean, very pretty and open. The pool area was vast and the water was clear and clean, but it was too cool to swim. The beach is clean and the sand is soft with plenty of lounge chairs to choose from. They offer towels for a $20.00 deposit, and upon return, you will receive an $18.00 refund. The ocean was too cold for us to get into but it is absolutely beautiful! They do offer drinks and food in the all-inclusive package. The bartender was friendly enough but was not fast with drinks and there was a small very select drink menu. The food was promoted as a buffet and grill, but it is just a small grill behind the bar. They do offer a menu, and the food we tried was presented well and very good. The Straw Market is across the street and a very short walking distance and this is also where you meet your return taxi driver. Grand Lucaya does not allow taxis to stay on the premises.

A moms weekend away for my 50th. We bought the all inclusive “cruise and stay“ offered through the Margaritaville cruises. Our cruise arrived Saturday morning to the Bahamas, and although it took a little bit of time to get to the hotel with our arrangements, we were pleasantly surprised upon arrival. We had heard the hotel took on great damage in the 2019 hurricane and it seems the majority of it is still shuttered and the property is up for sale. You can definitely feel the wear and tear of the hotel, but the staff, the location, the amenities, the all you can eat, and drink package, the weather, the time of year we went we literally felt like it was our own private resort. We had upgraded to oceanfront rooms, which is the only way to go. The rooms are a bit damp but who cares you’re on the ocean with the most magnificent view we decided to go off resort one night for dinner at the flying fish, which I could not recommend more on a Sunday night when the owner gets up and sings acoustically. Situated on a marina and walking distance to the hotel. We did enjoy the spa Services and really couldn’t have asked more than our toes in the sand, a drink in our hand and complete relaxation. I guess my only tip would be for the staff and the DJ to see, what your demographics are when you’re blaring music. It would’ve been nice to have more chill music, then the blaring songs when there were few people there. The “day trippers” come by sat all day and monday, but it was néver that crowded our weekend. Highly rec for a quick getaway from fla that was pretty low key and lovely all they around. I hope we do not loose this boutique gem (keep with what you have and just update it) then turn it in to the next hardrock. But glad we go to experience it. Will be back.

The property is beautiful. The Beach is very clean and there were plenty of seats for the beach or pool . It is very quiet, even when the cruise ship people come visit for the day. We had a fraternity there that was rowdy but there is enough space that they did not bother me. We were thankful that the market place was so close because the food was less than desirable for dinner. Breakfast was decent. The chef making the fresh omelets was great. Lunch was fine but dinner offering were just DISGUSTING. The spa is great. Tenille did such an amazing job with a 80 min massage. the chefs and bartenders at the pool bar work their butts off to accommodate resort and cruise guests. If you are just looking for a nice , relaxing place, this is it, but not for foodies AT ALL

Where to start. Probably by saying the only good thing about it, that the staff are charming, even if ineffectual.

The room stank of mildew. The pool was filthy and not vacuumed. The food was awful. The grounds were littered.

Food: French fries were cooked in oil so old that it was rancid. 'Fresh' orange juice on the breakfast menu actually came out of a carton. Poached eggs were served in a puddle of their vinegar flavoured cooking water. Crab cakes were battered and deep fried slimy mush. Croutons on the salad were broken up crackers.

Outside my room, old plastic cups, wet Kleenex.

Last morning here, 8:30am, housekeeping is pounding on the door to find out when I'm leaving so that they can clean the room.

I could go on and on, but it's just too depressing.

A DJ by the pool had the music pounding even though there was only myself and two other couples there.

Grand Lucayan greeted us with open arms and happily accommodated our hotel shuffle.

Hurricane Dorian and COVID all but destroyed tourism but you’d never know by the warm welcomes, joy and optimism shared with us. Darrell, Kendra and Christopher were some of our favorites (only to name a few, we wish I could remember all our friends names) so much it was actually sad to say goodbye.

Amenties: lap pool, one swimming pool (so easy & safe to find your older kids, no hunting around like a big resort), shuffle board, chess and a fun DJ who keeps it family friendly while still fun for adults. The food! It was all fantastic. Want a drink? Name it and they’ll make it. No one batted an eye when my mother downed at least three cases of Light Sands in a can during our 3 day stay.

The grounds of the hotel are absolutely stunning from the view of your room, the restaurant or the beach & pool. The rooms are immaculately clean. The beds are comfortable. The towels are plush. The hotel is safe. While they recommend it, honestly we never felt the need to lock our first floor sliding door and easily went in/out to the beach without any worries.

Lastly, during our stay we had pleasure of seeing some very important guests at the hotel. Aside from our own self consciousness that we should cover up & look more fancy, the staff never once made us feel less worthy or unimportant. Our service maintained the A+++ quality despite the pressure they probably felt to make everything perfect for their other guests.

I love to travel. I’ve seen awful hotels, mediocre hotels and wonderful hotels. This hidden gem is hands down in the top 3 - not just for all of the above but for everything I haven’t including due to space. We wish them only the very best and hope we can return one day with the same ambience as this stay.

The resort is “Hit & Miss” the resort is still recovering from previous hurricane’s which hit the area. Only one side of the resort is in operation. Local shops within walking distance or a short ride. Most of which was closed on Saturday & Sunday.
Check in was easy, the clerk was very attentive & welcoming. The beach access was just steps from our room, DJ was live and played a variety of music, the bar area was top notch, food was good as well—- staff did their absolute best to keep up with the demand. Dinner for the evening was great — great menu, drinks & cocktails were excellent.
First night the exception that our door would not lock and could be accessed from the outside & maintenance had to repair it so that made me very uncomfortable (was not move to a new room). Day two breakfast was good, staff was attentive.
Booked a day tour through the concierge in the lobby….very disappointed as we did not get to see any of the things in which she mentioned—- only toured the local neighborhoods so I guess that was the city tour — the driver kept getting phone calls during our tour.
The second night stay was “HORRIBLE”!!!! Children were running & talking loudly outside our doorway.
About 10pm noise from upstairs sounded like a wrestling match, almost to the point like someone was throwing furniture, after about an hour we Called security. There were several large groups with children & this put a damper on our R&R time. People really should control their kids!!! Or the hotel staff should separate or put them away from other guess.
Up on check out we waited & waited for a taxi which the desk clerk say she call or a shuttle that never came, people were been dropped off but no one was taking anyone back to the port….finally the gentleman that had been waiting the entire hour that we sat waiting on a taxi decided to drive us back to the port. SMH wow!
Items for sale at the port are very over priced!
Even on the last day it seems as they were hurting for a sale.

The property infrastructure puts the safety of guests at risk. For example, the light fixture in our bathroom started pouring water like a shower head while the lights were on. We called for help twice, and then finally, my husband went down to the lobby looking for help. It was a very scary and dangerous situation, and that was only one of the unfortunate events that showed that the property had no appropriate management. Another one was glass inside the pool, and the events just kept piling up. The room smelled so bad. The air-conditioned would not cool the room, and the dehumidifier was noisy and blowing hot air. The TV didn't work, and this was one of the best beach front suites. We had the all-inclusive package, but the meals offered were limited and cheap. You could also tell the food items were being recycled like the parfait that wasn't eaten in one day you could see on the next breakfast with so much whey separation that was disgusting 😳 . The sad part about this property is that it has so much potential and, under good management, could be the reason why you would want to go to the Grand Bahama Island.

Stayed at the resort through Margaritaville at sea cruise and stay all inclusive package for two nights for our anniversary. The resort has some maintenance issues, AC wasn’t working in our first room so they moved us to another room that had the same issues, never got below 76 in room. Room was basic older decor and very musty smelling but clean. Room stayed very moist. It appears they have some roof issues too.
Beach and pool and grounds are very beautiful though.
Food was very low quality and dinner was a buffet where most food wasn’t very hot and wasn’t very tasty. Pizza place was the best food options but wasn’t open on Sunday due to their Sunday brunch which wasn’t included for us and would have been extra like $50 pp. didn’t seem worth it based on previous dining room experience.
Bar- only one bar option during day which outside Waves bar, very low quality liquor and beer offerings. And drinks weren’t very good and one bar couldn’t handle crowd. Took an hour or more to get a drink on first day when they had all the day pass guest. To me they need a separate bar and staff for resort guest vs day guest.
Wouldn’t recommend this resort. It has great potential, someone needs to invest and buy this place to take it over. Not being ran properly which is sad.

This is actually a 1 star for US hotel standards. Food is awful overcooked cheap buffet food with like 3 options. Chicken tenders fries tortilla chips pasta / cafeteria style in cheap buffet pans inside a room w a DJ and a card table as a bar. Drinks in Dixie cups and food served on paper plates. Resort is run down. All the shops next door are abandoned and the boardwalk is all broken and doesn’t look safe.. The hotelfacilities aren’t keep up at all. It’s like they don’t do any upkeep or maintenance - very low budget. Also they advertise a casino but it’s been closed since 2016 and they haven’t updated the website to say it’s closed 8 years ago. Gym and spa are very musty smelling. The website also doesn’t work so don’t bother booking a tee time or requesting a spa appt because they said they don’t know where those requests go. It’s almost like this whole island is desolate maybe from the hurricane years ago. They say this is the best hotel on the island which is pretty sad to say. I’d hate to see how bad the others are.

Completely mess in the booking, and the receptionist Mrs. Philippa was rude like no one.
First I've got a single room assigned, but somebody was already in, after they assigned me another room, the same was reassigned to somebody else.
The receptionist kept being rude with no reason.

One large buffet style dining area where most meals are taken, one small limited menu more upscale restaurant by reservation, one snack shack in the pool area. The snack shack is also a bar, but not swim up, and there is a bar area in the lobby. Hours of operation unknown. Shopping area with a lot of local vendors and some chain eateries nearby.
