In Dec. 2014 two of us visited this lodge to try our hand at bonefishing. Finding and catching lots of fish, four of us returned in 2015. Results were much as expected. Great fishing, warm temperatures, good food and comfortable surroundings. Everyone at the lodge worked very hard to make our experience a pleasant one. I hope we get to... More

We spent a couple of week at Swain's in november. Very nice and smiling staff for a friendly atmosphere in a pleasant setting. The room was clean and confortable. Food is not amazing but quite decent (the chicken curry was my favorite). A very good place to stay for the fishermen, situated halfway between the north and the south bite... More

Spent a week at Swain's with a group of fly fishing friends. Well run operation. Food was good but not exceptional. Staff very friendly. Nice beach right out front door. Fishing guides were heat. Would stay here again.

Stayed over night in a business trip and accommodations were mediocre at best. The room had a cabin feel to it but how the lodge is run, it feels more like a bed & breakfast. There was no tv in the room but the free wifi definitely made up for it. Dinner is only made according to how many guests... More

We have visited Swain's twice and have been treated royally each time. Cheryl and her staff do everything possible to make you stay perfect. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the food fine and the atmosphere perfect. This is bonefish heaven.

I spent seven nights, six days, here in November 2014 with nine other anglers. The lodge sits right on the ocean with a beautiful beach and a fishing flat right there. Good food, spacious, very clean, comfortable room looking out to the ocean with thick, luxurious towels in the bathroom. Gracious staff that provided excellent service. The owner, Cheryl, was...

It's not easy to find a vacation place where two fisherman and a non-fishing wife can have a great time together but this is it. For me, the smiles on my 23 year-old son's face as he fly cast and caught bones was worth every minute. At the end of every day we could come back to the lodge to... More

Swains Cay is a great place to go for bonefishing. The food is decent, the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. They work with some of the best fishing guides on the island. A little money invested in this place could really take it to the next level.
