Quintessential Bahamas! We have visited several locations in the out islands in the Bahamas, this is the best! Will definitely go back! The setting is just spectacular, secluded bay, gorgeous water, great beach! If you are looking for luxury accommodations, all inclusive resort, fine dining restaurants, this may not be the place for you. But if you are looking for... More

FBV is with out a doubt the best, most relaxing venue in the Bahamas. Family owned and operated for years, FBV just keeps on getting better and better. Oh yes, the food, the service in support of the restsurant and cottages is supreme. Lobster night is beyond description! You must meet Donna.....

The suites are picturesque and the setting is perfect. The staff could not be nicer or more attentive. Everyone in our party loved the self service bar. This was our second year in a row at FBV, we will be back!

The location is wonderful. The people are nice. The rooms are overpriced. The food is overpriced. The snorkeling equipment,; I would bring my own. They need a bartender for the bar. They need some good vegetarian options. As far as I am concerned it was not a good value for the money.

We are so happy you enjoyed the beach and staff at FBV. Our time honored self-help tiki-bar is a favorite among new and returning guest. While it's not a common request we do our best to accommodate all dietary restrictions - food shopping in the out islands can have it's challenges. It is best to bring your own snorkeling gear....

This was our second trip to FBV. Decided to stay a bit further down the beach for more privacy. The cottage is small, but we were never in it, so it really wasn't relevant. The best thing about FBV is the privacy. They were fully booked, but we rarely ran into anyone except at the clubhouse around meals. It's busiest... More

Stayed there Feb 22-29 and it was literally paradise. Other than 2 windy days, the weather was perfect - calm, sunny, and almost too hot but just probably just right (28 ish by day). The white sand beach and clear turquoise water was ideal for swimming - both splashing around but also distance swimming and snorkeling (at each end of... More

We had a fabulous trip to Fernandez Bay Village - had seen an article in Garden and Gun magazine six or more years ago and never forgot it. Had the chance to slip away for a week and chose it -absolutely thrilled - just as described- Went last week in February 2014 and could not have loved it more -... More

We just completed our 6th trip to Fernandez Bay and it was just as awesome as the first five. The beach is fantastic. We love to stay at the Point House. It's secluded at the end of the beach. There is daily maid service with fresh towels. But other than new beach towels you hardly need the service. There are... More

This was our 2nd stop during our first fly-in trip around the Bahamas. A very romantic beach side setting on a beautiful bay just 5 minutes from the (little) airport. The non-hotel like aesthetic that attracted us to the resort on the Web was in fact, very much a part of this place's attractiveness. Many/all of the rooms and suites... More
