My husband and I just got back from Small Hope last week and we can't wait to go back! We went there for our 35th wedding anniversary and we had the best time, met some wonderful people, did some great diving and ate ourselves silly. First of all the people who work at Small Hope are so friendly and they... More

We have traveled extensively, and Small Hope Bay Lodge was the perfect place for our family. Best diving in the Bahamas, 3rd largest barrier reef in the world, 5 star service. We have also visited the Cayman Islands, Exumas, Antigua, Eleuthera, Nassau, Grand Bahama, and this was by far the best all inclusive resort we have experienced. If you want... More

After finishing my Ph.D., I was so happy just to leave computer screens, deadlines, phones, etc. Before I left, I really didn't have much time to think about what kind of trip I was taking; I was just happy to be getting some much needed rest for a few days. From the moment we landed at Andros Island, the "breath... More

My mom and I had our first visit to Small Hope (definitely not the last) in August. I truly do not have one negative thing to say about our visit. The location, food, activities, room, beach, grounds...exceeded our expectations! What really set our experience apart were the people (staff and guest). It was so fun meeting other guest from all...

Our first trip to Small Hope will not be our last. The staff is so welcoming. The food was very good, deserts even better. I think the drinks were good, but I don't remember. :-) Dive staff was great, Federico, Dennis, John, plus the interns. Thanks for the tech help Andrew. It made for a fantastic trip. Not very many...

The return visit rate is extraordinarily high -- and once you go there, you understand why. It is off the beaten path so it provides peace and comfort that you share with a small group of other guests. But it provides a cottage on the beach, unlimited great food and drinks, and a wide variety of safe, excellent diving. This... More

We make regular trips down to the Bahamas and we only stay in small, independently owned resorts like Small Hope Bay Lodge. Sorry, no Atlantis for us. After reading the reviews, we had high hopes for Small Hope Bay Lodge. After being there for five days, I'd say that it was a three and a half star experience with high... More

Small Hope Bay Lodge is a very interesting and enjoyable establishment to visit. It boasts good diving but also a rather unique atmosphere and the added feature of food with a flare.
