We just returned from a 5 night stay at this great, very laid back vacation spot right on the water. We did scuba diving for three days from one of their three dive boats. The staff treat you like family. The food and the service were both excellent. The rooms are quaint but functional. There are no TVs and they... More

I had the most relaxing escape in a very long time. It was the first time in 15 years that i did not check my email. The staff was great and I met and made friends with quite a few other guests. I had enjoyable days bone-fishing the flats of the bights and freshwater creek

Small Hope Bay Lodge is absolutely unique and one of our new favorite places on the planet. The location is remote but breathtaking. The Lodge has so many amazing people - all the staff treat you just like family. I was there with my two teenagers and BOTH kids loved Small Hope, for very different reasons. The cottages are simple,... More

Thanks for the great review Christine! I am so glad you two had a great time. It is hard to find a better view than from our cabins - watch the sun rise above the turquoise Bahamas waters, there's nothing like it!

I cannot say enough good things about Small Hope Bay Lodge. We went here for our honeymoon, and had the most fabulous time. We were looking for something in the Bahamas but wanted to avoid any corporate-type resorts, and we hit the jackpot with Small Hope Bay Lodge. The staff was beyond amazing: friendly, helpful, engaging. The food was so... More

From the moment I found Small Hope Bay on Trip Advisor I knew we would love it. We built the rest of our trip to the Bahamas (our first visit) around our stay here. This is our kind of place. Small, family run, dive centric, eco friendly and in the most amazing location. Our flights were included in our package... More

Thanks for the lovely review! I am so happy you enjoyed you stay. You're exactly right - you can do as much or as little as you want. The diving, fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, and nature tours are awesome! But, like our t-shirt says, we do NOTHING better than anyone! Looking forward to your next visit! More

Just back from Small Hope and very hard to pull on my snow boots and don my winter jacket again. I haven't had this much difficulty coming back to reality from a trip in a long time (and we've done some pretty amazing trips!).

Small Hope made our Honeymoon the best experience I've had in my life. While my fiance at the time was working on some of the logistical things for the wedding, I worked on the honeymoon portion. We knew we wanted to do something tropical and it had to be under 7 hours of flight time (not including delays and lay-overs).... More
