We came back to Higgins Landing for Thanksgiving vacation this year 2013. Carol and Dave were wonderful hosts again - the food was just delicious and the cabins are decorated in stile. We love this quiet and elegant place. We hope to be able to come back again soon

My wife and I have been to Higgins Landing for three visits. It's the best we have ever found. And the owners are an absolute delight. We are just dumb-founded to see several nasty reviews - and heartened to see so many others with such high praise. The setting is perfect, the cabins are simple but elegant, and Stocking Island...

We had a beautiful stay in 2013 and were told by the owners that our return in 2014 was welcome ..but when we treid to book 2014 we were told that we could not return and our e-mail was blocked by Higgins.We are very hurt and feel that we are being picked on because we are Canadians.This is totally acceptable.

I am writing to dissuade anyone ever interested in Higgins Landing on Stocking Island in Greater Exuma, Bahamas to NEVER go there. We went there in January 2013 and loved this small, quiet, perfectly located eco-resort. HOWEVER, we attempted to return this year for a family Christmas We would have been five people out of their possible nine guests. Initially... More

After a sailing trip on the Bahamas we looked for a short stay to conclude our vacation and we found this paradise retreat just by chance. Hotel Higgins Landing has only four cottages wonderfully situated on Stocking island. Dave picked us up at George Town and after a short ride with his boat we were already in our cottage with...

Hotel Higgins Landing on Stocking Island is a very special place. We return each year. The physical beauty of the small barrier island is captivating for those that appreciate the beach and the clear turquoise waters of the Bahamas. The four-mile long island is perfect for a lovely hike with a stop for a picnic at any one a dozen... More

Tired of the dark and cold Northeastern winter, my wife and I retreated to Stocking Island for 8 days of snorkeling, hiking and bonefishing. It was all we hoped to find, blue skies and bluer water, 4 miles of clean ocean beach with no other walkers in sight most mornings, and in the evening Carol's gourmet dinners. David and Carol...

Hotel Higgins Landing is unique in its beauty and peacefulness. Four lovely cottages sprinkled throughout the property afford privacy, yet are a short walk to gorgeous beaches, water sports, and an honor bar. Our porch was wonderful area for eating breakfast each morning as we watched the gorgeous boats cruising in the harbor. After dinner we returned to our lounge... More

Spent about a week with teenage sons - our best vacation ever. Beautiful island with many exosystems to explore and so few people to share it with. We explored all day, snorkeled, sailed, bodysurfed, etc., ate fantastic meals in the evening, and simply reconnected as a family. Carol and Dave (owners) were lovely to all of us and helped make...

Higgins Landing is a little gem. We just returned from our two week stay and are already planning our next visit. This hotel is more of a personal retreat than an upscale spa. It is off the beaten track-not easy to get to, but well worth the effort. This is the spot for you if you love beautiful, unspoiled beaches,... More
