Just recently returned from a week at Riding Rock Inn in San Salvador, Bahamas. The resort is recovering from a recent hurricane and the staff worked very hard to make our stay enjoyable. They are in the process of remodeling the reception area, dining room, and bar which have been enlarged and works nicely for groups. We stayed in the... More

Recently stayed at Riding Rock Inn for a week of diving. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. The coffee was always fresh, the food was superb that included fresh conch, grouper and other local food. The conch chowder was fantastic. An easy walk to the dive boat and excellent diving. All too... More

The staff did a great job making sure we were well taken care of even though they were still recovering from a hurricane. The food was great especially the conch chowder of which I could not get enough. They really appreciate their guest and I hope to return for another great trip

Our group of 18 returned for a week of diving at Riding Rock Inn, last visited by our group in 2009. We flew American out of Charlotte which was a big problem. Bahama's Air waited on our flight so we made it to San Sal in spite of American Airlines. The hotel is for divers! If you want 5 Star... More

This motel is quiet, clean, and still recovering from the hurricane in 2015. Ask for a room on the second floor, not ground level. Make sure the AC works before unpacking your stuff! Hot water is a relative term here. You need a room close to the office if WiFi is important.

Still recovery fro hurricane. Rooms nice enough though bath fixtures corroded. Great sunset views from balcony. People were friendly, except peaches, the bartender. She was ok but a bit gruff. Food was plentiful home cooking. Bar was poorly stocked. Few amenities and nothing nearby. We were there to dive and were not disappointed. 17 great dives. Crew and dive master... More

We just returned from another wonderful dive trip to the Riding Rock. We always call this our "No Brains Trip" because Michelle and the Williams family take all the guess work out our trips to their resort. As you know, San Salvador was hit by hurricane Joaquin last October. Since that time the Williams family has rallied to get the... More

Dear Lisa: We can’t wait to have you back! We are very proud of the renovations – we know we have a few more repairs to make before we are at 100%, but good to know nothing marred your enjoyment of your stay. We’ll make sure all the family and staff are aware of the kudos! More
