I have been to the Island 5 times, in Spring, Fall and Winter - most recently 2 weeks ago, and am planning on returning this Fall. I travel all the way from the Pacific NW which is not very kind transportation-wise; about 22 hours with layovers, but the minute I reach Government Dock, it is worth it. I have come... More

One of the many adventures planned for our first trip to Eleuthera was to see Harbour Island. So we boated over ($20) got a golf cart ($45) headed straight for the beach (priceless), saw it, oooohhhh aaaahhhh, walked it, decided there was too many people for us (really there wasn't) then needed a drink to celebrate such an awesome beach....

My husband and I recently spent five nights at the Coral Sands Hotel, Harbour Island, Bahamas. Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and glass of champagne. Check in was fast and efficient. Our luggage was taken to our room, a junior suite located on the first floor in the Lucaya Building. We had a limited ocean view, because... More

I recently stayed at Coral Sands after a two year hiatus. From the moment you walk in the charming hotel entry, you feel as if you have walked into a Ralph Lauren ad. The dark wood floors and green palms, all chicly decorated in Bahamian style. You are drawn in by the spectacular setting above the stunning pink sand beach.... More

Our family just returned from Coral Sands: it was our first time at the hotel and Harbour Island. I was so happy with the size of the resort--not too big and not too small. The venue by the water is great for lunch and beach setup is terrific. Breakfast on the main lobby terrace was so pleasant. The food and... More

The marketing was not wrong - this really is a beautiful island and an excellent hotel in a fantastic location; we were particularly impressed by how friendly everyone was. Harbour Island has a satisfying feel of being a long way from anywhere with a serenity that was particularly special. When the most difficult choice when you wake up and wander... More

We decided to pay a little more to upgrade to the deluxe ocean view suite and was shocked to pay ~$700+ per night for this kind of room. Bathroom is really small and scary with dirty towels, dirty shower curtain and tiles. The bed and sheets had water stains. The entire building should be renovated. The service at the front... More

Harbour Island was one of the earliest settlement and is stunningly beautiful with the unspoilt old town looking towards Abaco and the fabulous three mile long sandy beach facing east. Coral Sands sits above the beach in the centre, a great position. When we arrived in reception and the first question from the manager was 'would you like a glass... More

This place has a beautiful beach. The decor is a bit dated, but they seem to be working on that. My room was spacious, but the bathroom was smallish. The ocean front balcony was roomy. Enjoyed the ocean front restaurant for drinks and lunch. Dining room had good food, but nothing on the island is cheap. There was good service... More

The best of the resort is the location, the amazing pink sand beach and the beautiful garden that surrounds the resort. The buildings, rooms, the beach bar, the restaurant are located perfectly. Having breakfast in the nice patio in front of the sea was wonderful. However, the resort service and cleaningness were below expectation.The continental breakfast was sufficient and delicious...
