My family and I (wife and three boys) joined the staff at the lodge on a dive with reef sharks. We all snorkeled, and had an amazing experience, with 10 - 12 sharks (5 - 6') showing up and circling on the surface with us until the chum ball went overboard to the bottom 30' down. Our two older boys... More

Small Hope Bay Lodge is where you want to be. This rustic and incredibly beautiful resort allowed us to leave everyday expectations at home. Jeff, the owner, commented to my husband that he knows that their guests work all year just to come to Small Hope for one week. You will realize this the moment you arrive. Meals are fresh... More

We booked our spring break stay based on the great reviews on T.A., and we enjoyed every minute. Others have stated what a wonderful time they had, and we concur. Met so many interesting people, ate and drank way too much, but everything that was served was top notch. Tours are conducted by the staff-they drive you, conduct the tour,... More

Thanks for that great review! I am so happy you and your family enjoyed a great vacation. It sounds like you tried a little bit of everything - diving, beach relaxing, nature tours, and fishing! Our chefs are wonderful, and grilling up freshly-caught fish by our guests is always a treat. We hope to see you all back again soon! More

What a wonderful place to spend quality vacation time relaxing, diving, fishing or kayaking over the reef. All the magic of an intimate, family run resort right on the beach with the added benefit of genuine, caring and warm staff who made our stay special, and introduced us to their island in a way that we seldom get to experience...

Without exception, the best vacation I have ever had. If you value peace and quiet, or you love an exciting fishing trip and wrestling with some big barracuda or bonefish.. Small Hope is for you. There were days that we had the entire beach to ourselves. Sun shining, breeze blowing, waves lapping at the shore... It was not in the... More

Thanks so much for the great review. We are a unique, off-the-beaten-track resort, and it's wonderful you enjoyed your stay with us. I agree, our diving (and dive staff) is outstanding.

Andros is the best kept secret in The REAL Bahamas, and Small Hope Bay is the place to be. The property is fabulous, the staff is class A. Great diving, fishing, and food. We lived on Andros for three years, so we have local knowledge. You won't be disappointed.
