Excellent stay. Rooms are well kept annd serviced. Michelle and staff could not have been more helpful, friendly or acomadating. I was the only person there for awhile but when others arrived I was provided an excellent fresh dinner of Wahoo and veggies.

I showed up at the hotel, and there was only one other couple there - should have been a clue. The room was more surprising. The sliding screen door on the waterside of the room had rusty rollers that wouldn't stay in the track. The A/C unit is noisy, which was good since they put a group of people on... More

As a dive and fishing group-oriented resort, we generally do not accept reservations for individuals, unless we already have a group in house. However when someone arrives on our doorstep, on an island with few accommodation alternatives, we would be remiss to turn anyone away. We do apologize about the issues with the sliding screen doors. Try as we may... More

I went there for business, the hotel rooms are very outdated, decent, while there they had a power outage so no water. Then no wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby and restaurant, the food was good, the lady at the front desk was really nice! The hotel is very close to the airport, 5 min drive to the... More

We do appreciate your staying with us, but would be the first one to admit we are not a resort set up for business travelers. In fact being a business ourselves, we feel for those who must travel to any of the out-islands for business, as intermittent power outages are the norm rather than the exception, and as with most...

The hotel has issues. No one will dispute that. There are many reasons to knock it but if you are a passionate recreational scuba diver none of those things will matter. It's a dive resort. Come for the diving. It's spectacular. The adjacent diver operation, Guanahani Divers is a terrific dive operation and the dive sites, many of which a... More

The island of San Salvador is small and there are very few places to stay. It has been on our to dive list for some time and we finally made it there. Aside from rentable villas there are three hotels on the island. Club Med, a small place on the east side of the island , catering to wind surfers... More

Took my husband for a shark diving vacation for his upcoming birthday and we stayed at this family owned resort. It was wonderful to take a vacation that felt so personal and not so corporate. The first day the "family" knew our names. The all inclusive resort offered 3 meals a day and they were some of the best meals... More

Dear Bonnie: We are so glad Riding Rock was able to be part of your husbands birthday vacation. Diving, dining and from the pictures it looks like some Bone Fishing as well. Perfect combination. We're glad you appreciated the food - especially the eggs. You can ask to "sneak" into the kitchen next time so you can find out the... More

I have to say I was completely taken back by the pleasing atmosphere, service and overall experience that my wife and I had over the last week we spent here. The diving service and diving experiences were exceptional. I found that Michelle, Angela, Kevin, Peaches, Tyler, and Captain Bruce, as well as the rest of the staff made sure our... More

Dear Jay & Bonnie: Thank you for your kind words. Family life is a very important part of most Bahamians lives, and we at Riding Rock work hard to "extend" the family fold to include all of our staff and guests. So welcome to the family and please come see us again! More

We don't dive, so we're actually not catered to by this hotel. However, a few things apply, whether you dive or not. This place certainly has kind of a quirky charme, but it is really worn. It is only kept up in parts, other parts seem to decay and it has never been a fancy place. Food was OK but... More

Guten Tag! Terbang we are sorry to hear your vacation experience was less than you had hoped for. We are and do present ourselves as a very modest resort, "quirky" not something we use in our marketing materials but certainly not a bad thing to be! But we generally get rave reviews in the posts about the food, which is... More

My wife did a marine biology course on the Island of San Salvador in here college years and dreamed of going back since. 11 years later she talked me into it (not that it took any arm bending). This review is overdue as we stayed back in October 13. No complaints what so ever. The resort puts family first and... More

We are so glad you enjoyed so many aspects of your stay, and love that you got that "family first" vibe right from the start. It would not be a stretch to consider that for our marketing tag line!
