Stayed at the BMCM for a few days recently. The "resort" clearly caters to boaters from the US who come to the Bahamas to exploit the fishery. Rooms were very nice, the pool and bar area are lovely, the restaurant was pretty good and most staff were very nice and helpful. I love the Bahamian people! The property itself is... More

The Blue Marlin is a great spot if you're looking to get away from the typical tourist places. It's a quiet fishing resort with amenities you typically don't find on Grand Bahama. The food is great, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. From fishing spots to local activities they will hook you up.

The blue marlin cove is just what you are looking for after a long day at sea. We took our first Bahamas trip with our own boat and stayed at this Bahamas gem. The kitchen is beautiful with granite counter tops and new appliances . The beds- while we still got our rest each night as our salty heads hit... More

Just returned with my family and our new boat from Blue Marlin Cove. I have been going to the Bahamas since I was a kid and was a boat Captain traveling all over the Bahamas. This is one of the most well run marinas and accommodations I have seen. The rooms are super and the docks are great. The staff... More

We stayed for 5 days for fishing. If you are looking to fish this is a great place. The resort is far from any place to eat or shop. The marina is clean and the 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bath condo was perfect for what we planned to do. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.... More

If you are looking to jump in your boat from Florida and do a couple of days of fishing in Bahamas this is your place. Expect nothing ! and you won't be disappointed. Horrible service, we had no air conditioning in one of our rooms they made no effort to repair (they did adjust the bill at the end). We... More

Stayed here for Memorial Day weekend. For starters the entire resort was very very clean. The grounds are well-kept and the docs or even better. Every dog has a water hose in Mooring lines already attached. The new owners were on site and very friendly it was like they are just a part of the environment and there to relax... More

We had a nice stay at Blue Marlin Cove but were disappointed at the lack of offerings available in comparison to what the website shows. Obviously using stock photos to build there site there was absolutely no sunset view and not much of a beach at all. It's new but the newness of the rooms does not match the overall... More

These guys hit the nail on the head when they designed the perfect 5 star fishing lodge. Every convenience and detail has been thought of for both the AVID fisherman (prinstine docks and fish cleaning stations; fully loaded, spacious condo kitchens with sparkling, modern appliances); as well as for those who are "not" (us!). There are lots of extra amenities... More
