The overlook picture of this resort is either photoshopped or is very old. The resort is surrounded by development and a road that is NOT in the picture. This is not a quiet place. Also there is NO glass in the windows in the cabins. Just screen and wooden shutters. Therefore, you can hear your neighbors intimately. Therefore you get... More

Having stayed at a few hotels in Nassau we wish we only had found this gem sooner. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home with a friendly smile and an offer of a drink from the manager. The rooms are original, comfortable and perfectly designed with huge shuttered windows, lots of space and an enormous... More

We stayed in this hotel very last minute due to being shipwrecked after a storm. Compass Point is truly breathtaking. The views are incredible, the staff and service was fantastic. We only stayed one night but the little huts were a great hit with us all. Everything you could need in an almost tree house like environment. I couldn't recommend... More

Compass Point is magical place with beauty, serenity, and history. When you stay at Compass Point you're staying where music history has been made. The Marley family studios are near by. Lenny Kravitz used to live next door. Artists from Celine Dion to Widespread Panic have stayed there while recording. The rooms are amazing and the food and service are... More

We went on a Thursday night for local music diner and it was magic. The band was phenomenal playing great reggae and tamed carribean music. The food was excellent, my wife and guests had seafood raviolis while I selected a wonderful cracked conck diner. The service by Charles was superb. Atmosphere like no other at the unique renown compass point... More

We stayed here for 4 days and loved this small, unique hotel. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms as every one of them faces the ocean and the view is spectacular and largely unobstructed. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with lots of light and a small balcony facing the ocean. We used to... More

We stayed at Compass Point for four days in March and really enjoyed it except for a few somewhat minor items. The location of the resort is perfect; close to the airport and away from the bustling resorts. The elevated seafront hut we rented (115) was right on the water with a great view. The room was comfortable and the... More

We have visited Compass Point many times, and it has never disappointed. The view from the patio is gorgeous- watch the boats float by, the waves crash along the barrier reef and the clouds float by on the Caribbean breeze. The staff are friendly and helpful, but a reminder that this is NOT McDonald's and everything moves more slowly in... More

If you are not staying at this hotel don't waste time. My tour book suggested going to compass point to see the brightly coloured huts so we thought it would be fun, time on the beach, coloured huts and a beverage of two. Unfortunately you cant see ANYTHING if you are not a guest at the hotel unless you want... More

Living in NYC, often times I’ll come across a very special place that I want to keep all to myself. Compass Point is no exception. However, I cannot help but share its magic with the rest of travelers seeking an amazing and secret getaway. There are some places in this world that carry a special energy with them, lending themselves... More
