Not what the pictures show. Beautiful beach...but unkempt. Rooms and public areas all very tired and in need of repair & updating. Gorgeous view from room deck but awful hike down to beach over hills. Coming up is worse. Would not return.

We certainly feel as though we have not delivered when a guest says they would not return, so my apologies for that. We do enjoy a very high percentage of return guests, but of course Harbour Island and Pink Sands is not for everyone. All of our beach front cottages have private pathways to the beach though the sand dune... More

I planned, from South Carolina, a rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding at the Blue Bar sight unseen via e-mail and the Internet. I was a little nervous to say the least.

This hotel is completely run down. It's easily the worst supposedly 5 star hotel I've ever stayed in. The service is a joke the food and the food is even funnier. Save yourself the disappointment and pick any another hotel on the island.

We were on Harbour Island for five days, and ate at Pink Sands on our fourth night, our friends were raving about it so we thought to give it a try. We asked our Hotel Concierge (we stayed at the Dunmore) and a few others where to eat, nobody recommend Pink Sands so we were a little concened. We were... More

Beautiful spread out property with great service. The rooms are up to date and clean, though not everything is always perfect (poorly flushing toilet and lack of hangers). The oceanfront rooms are wonderful with a quick 20 steps to a perfect beach. The property is a bit large and spread out requiring some walking. We enjoyed that but it might... More

Spent a long weekend there in an ocean view cottage. Within a couple of hours you are lost in paradise. The staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. The faculty is starting to slowly show its age as does anyplace that is oceanfront. We will definitely visit again.

we loved Pinks Sands on Harbor Island...First the beach. It's even better than everyone says it is. Long, hard enough to make walking on it easy and absolutely beautiful.We walked it every day of a 12-day stay here and never got tired of it. The water is clear and it's fun to swim in. Perfect for kids. We did see... More

If you are looking for the Four Seasons, Pink Sands is not for you. If you're looking for shabby chic, beach-ey, amazing location, fantastic food and an even more fantastic staff - Pink Sands is a great fit. We stayed in an ocean front cottage which is a bit more but worth it. The breeze was lovely and so was... More

What a little gem. Harbour Island is the Nantucket of The Bahamas and Pink Sands was a perfect choice. Our cottage was clean and while not luxurious was certainly well maintained. The food was very good in the restaurant and the included continental breakfast down at The Blue Bar with oceanfront views was excellent. The staff were all extremely helpful... More
