Riding Rock got hit hard last October by Joaquin. They are currently restoring the resort from the extensive damage. The new dining room and bar are big and beautiful. Peaches loves her new bar and is there to welcome all with her beautiful big smile. Michelle and crew are working diligently to assure a warm, welcome visit. The kitchen staff...

Joaquin gave us a punch for sure but also a great excuse to renovate the dining room and bar area! You were our first guests and divers back since we reopened, so we are so glad to know you had such a good time. We still have a few repairs to make but only minor and not to the any...

A very relaxed resort on a special Caribbean island was enjoyed by our group of divers in early 2015. Rooms were comfortable, clean, safe and opened to ocean side balcony we forever had doors wide open for beautiful view and the sound of the surf all night lulled us to sweet dreams. The very friendly and down to earth staff...

Great trip. Riding Rock is enough off the beaten path that crowds are nonexistent. The water and beaches are amazing. Diving is fantastic. Lots of reef life and beautiful topography. We saw sharks on every dive and even spotted an occasional hammerhead. Food was good. I would have liked more fish or vegetarian options on the menu. Staff is friendly...

We just got back from a week at the Riding Rock Inn and Marina. The diving with Guanahani Divers was one of the best dive experiences. Schultz and Hogan were knowledgeable and made sure that each dive was not only unique, but also safe. The night dive was one of the best I have ever been on. The boat was...

Hogan the dive master was incredible!!! Diving was like no where else!!!! Sharks! Sharks! Breathtaking reefs and wall dives!!!! Resort old and worn, falling down and dangerous in a few spots. We did not drink the water. Food ok...lots of fried, not much fresh items. The conch chowder they serve every lunch is addictive. Drinks expensive in the little bar...

The Riding Rock has been in operation for a long time, and some of the facilities are showing their age... so what? Like a comfortable old pair of boat shoes, the Riding Rock is there for you to step right in. Not patent leather, not highly polished, just plain old comfortable. I actually came during a slack week and had...

Thank you so much for the post, but a Ritz on San Sal? That would mean trading in the “old pair of boat shoes” for Ferragamo’s. Perish the thought! We do wish you had been able to be here when we had more divers in house but greatly appreciate your being flexible in your arrangements with Captain Bruce. We’re working...

We do apologize for the insect debris you encountered upon arrival. Even when the rooms have been previously cleaned, we always do a “freshening up” right before a new guest arrives – so not sure how your room was missed. But we do appreciate that you let us know right away so we had the opportunity to correct this error...

We are so pleased to have read your report as providing authentic Bahamian hospitality is what Riding Rock and the Williams family is all about. You could not have paid them a higher complement. Please do find your way back again!

Being off the beaten track we don’t often have crowds, generally in the 6 – 30 guest range. But glad to hear you enjoyed yourself – even for the short while you were all by yourself! Please come see us again
