What a great place for a holiday! We went as we know someone living near and we visited them. Beautiful place, cabins on the beach, great food, full inclusive, accommodating if you want to go out all day, they will pack you a picnic!

My wife found this place on the internet. We took a chance and booked our vacation here. We give the experience 5 thumbs up! The staff were awesome, the help with our trip planning was great and the food was fantastic! We fished here and caught a lot of bonefish on fly. The guide we had put us on fish... More

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

My wife and I stayed at Small Hope Bay last year, in April of '14. Been meaning to write a review of this wonderful resort, but for some reason am only now getting around to it. Small Hope Bay is one of those really special places. It's a family run operation, tucked in an out-of-the-way spot. If you're lookng at... 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. And you'll be pleased to know we have already taken steps to improve our beach lounging. We have newly built pergolas on our north beach, with brand new hammocks,... More

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.

Small Hope Lodge is by far our favorite family vacation. It's intimate, special, and breathtakingly beautiful. The Birch family runs Small Hope Lodge as if everyone is part of their family.

We stayed at Small Hope Bay in November and it was amazing. We landed on Andros at eight thirty and by nine-thirty, we were in the water, off shore of a deserted cay, taking our scuba test and we were diving by eleven a.m.! The staff is amazing. The location exudes calm, and the cabins were perfect - simple, but... More

Forget the TV's, laptops, wifi and phones. You won't need them. Rest and relax with THE most friendly and attentive staff. Get on board with the Bahamian "ish" time (5ish, 6ish, etc....) and enjoy your stay. Enjoyed out stay here much more than a luxury hotel in Nassau where we stayed on our way to Andros Island.

We had travelled to Small Hope Bay Lodge on Andros Island in the Bahamas some years ago. The owners faithfully sent us emails about their property which always featured a photo of their gorgeous unspoiled white sand beach that seemed to go on forever. With November chills descending upon us, we thought why not go back there after we feed... More
