If you're looking for a secluded getaway like the tourist brochures from the 1950's, Bishop's is the best place I've found. Only a 30 minute drive from Freeport with the most beautiful beach in the Bahamas. Bishop is a friendly old guy who will have hours of conversation with you if you allow him to. Anyone calling him cranky must... More

A quiet nice resort on the east end. Great service , food and view of the sea. The beach is only a few steps away. I highly recommend this place if you want to enjoy the beach but don't want the large crowds. Highly recommend the conch fritters and a bottle of sands beer.

We arrived at Bishops after being at Gold Rock Beach - had read many great reviews about it. The bar isn't big, and there was a family taking up the patio, so we planted ourselves at the bar. We started to chat with the bar tender, an older man, but he was having none of it. He relented and gave... More

Although we have never stayed at the Resort we always make a point of driving from Freeport to have lunch at Bishops. Located on a beautiful beach. Clean and friendly atmosphere serving good food. This visit we ordered Red Snapper body cut but after some time we were informed the Red Snapper was not available but we could have the... More

We decided to stop by Bishop's (after visiting Gold Rock Beach) for some authentic Bahamian cooking - whole fried snapper and conch fritters. It was a beautiful day so we decided to sit outside on the deck by the water overlooking a private beach. Bishop himself stayed there to keep us company, along with his dog. The food was fantastic...

Stopped for a beer and water when exploring the Eastern part of the island. Great spot and Bishop has all the charm you could ask for in a barman. Bathrooms were basic in the beach bar but then again, that's not why you're there!

This place offers a chance to relax in real island life with the access to excitement and nightlife of Freeport. I got back home totally relax with fond memories of morning sport fishing, snokling and evenings with my family. The beach is simpley fantastic with a huge amount of quiet private area. If you want to experience a great vacation... More

Spent 5 days there for New Years, this was better than staying at a resort. We didn't have the crowds and noise as you would expect at a hotel. Bishops is a safe and relaxing place to stay. Very clean and the people were nice. Make sure you pick up snacks and drinks before you head to Bishops. Sometimes they... More

Traveling with young children we were a little hesitant about staying at a place that did not offer what the larger resorts offered, however, found out that Bishops was our idea of paradise. The beach is beautiful filled with all types of nature to explore. we could walk for miles without seeing anything man made. we could hear the ocean... More

I have visited Grand Bahama several times during the past year, and once you've hung around Lucaya it frankly gets pretty old. Bishop's is a wonderful break from the expensive tedium of Big Hotel life in Freeport. You'll need a car or at least a scooter, as it is about 30 miles east of town on the main road. (Get... More
