My boyfriend and I decided to go to the Bahamas for New Year's Eve. We found a very reasonable pkg on Expedia. We are used to beach hotels so we were ready for a little wear and tear. So, that being said, our complaints are not about that, but about service and attitude. The hotel is part of a complex... More

First time to the Bahamas. Went over on Balearia Ferry from Ft Lauderdale. As others commented previously the place was clean & well maintained, staff are largely professional and friendly. My wife and I appreciated the beach, cable TV, WiFi and quiet relaxed environment. Access to the nearby town is limited by the 'marina' location. The hotel provides a $6... More

the room was clean, and comfortable. Staff was more than friendly and they were always smiling, from front desk staff and lady who clean rooms are so nice. We used every aspect of the resort - the pool, the beach and the restaurant. My only complaint is that there's no place to sit down around the hotel. I will like... More

We stayed for 5 days at Flamingo Bay during their "all college students in March" month. They did not have any towels whatsoever for two days. It was NOT all-inclusive, contrary to what their website claims. You get three meals a day with 5 or so of the same choices and one drink included at those meals (taino splash=terrible!). Also,...

Older hotel with small rooms that have seen better days. But....it's cheap, it allows access to the taino beach resort, and the channel side offers a nice view. Our room was on the third floor and there is no elevator, so we had to consolidate our trips. The view was beautiful on the back of the building.

We stayed here for 5 days at the end of March. Having already read reviews of the hotel we were not surprised when we saw our rooms. There was an overall appearance of neglect. The tiled floors were chipped and looked grotty. The bathroom was basic with hair dryer but again a bit worn looking. However we had clean towels... More

Hard to complain when you are given a room for free in exchange to attend a presentation about some type of timesharing program (which we did not sign up for, obviously), but for those to think of paying for an hotel in Freeport, consider other options.

A large group of us (approx. 65) stayed at this hotel/apartment block in late March 2013.

The ladies at the front desk had utter contempt for the guests. They were sarcastic and apathetic. In the two days I stayed they never seemed to get anything correct and could not care less. The hotel itself is a dump, however, there is a very nice and reasonably priced restaurant next door. Also there is a very nice beach... More
