We have been searching for a family diving vacation spot where we could return year after year, and we have found it at Small Hope Bay, Andros Island, Bahamas. It has all the benefits of an all-inclusive resort without all the crowds. The diving was amazing-each day we went to a different spot and each dive was so varied. We...

In Nov of 2011, my husband and I visited SHB and are we ever glad that we did! Loved, loved, loved the welcoming feelings we were given with our first steps on to the property. Jeff escorted us to our cabin, and told us to stop by the office "whenever" to officially check in. "No need to rush relax, take...

Just back from four nights at Small Hope Bay Lodge where my eleven year old son learned how to scuba dive, my husband re-learned, my five year old daughter learned how to batik, I actually relaxed for the first time in months, we all made new friends and fell in love with Andros Island.

It may sound not possible, but I tell you it is true. We traveled with one other couple and our 6 girls for Christmas to New Years Day. The ease with booking such a crowd was impressive.

My wife and I got married here this past February and have not stopped thinking about it since! This place is not only affordable; it's also incredibly welcoming and beautifully secluded.

The concept is top class - great diving, excellent food, family style eating with staff and guests together, many guests on return visits, all create an atmosphere that works beautifully, no doubt thanks to fine tuning over fifty years...

Once again, we were treated like royalty. Staff arranged to take us on an early morning wall dive to 185 feet on each of our five days there. We typically depart at 7:00 AM; in the water at 7:15 AM; and back to the dock at 8:00 AM for breakfast. This is the closest thing you'll ever get to do...

Our group of six enjoyed Small Hope's people and weather along with diving and relaxing for a week. The ambiance was restful and the warmth intoxicating after late fall in Gloucester, MA. We'd had a big snowfall on Halloween and were in the mood for some of Andros' 80 degree water to dive into. We weren't disappointed. My thin summer...

The lodge has nice rooms and great food. You have to try their "conk fritters". The drinks were great and we truly enjoyed our stay. Even though this is a dive shop; we went fly fishing for bonefish.

Having been in the Hospitality industry for over 30 years, I was impressed by the staff of the Lodge...they were very helpful and displayed an excellent attitude.
