This resort has amenities like free use of Kayaks, hobi cat, and paddle boats. Nice pool! Very friendly marina staff! Nice snorkeling spots nearby. The public bathrooms could use an upgrade. Tiki bar and restaurant have great food and drinks!

We are so pleased to hear you took advantage, and enjoyed, all of our watersports. We will pass your kind words onto the marina staff. Now that the busy summer season is coming to a close, we will be able to focus our attention on the marina bathrooms. You will see a big improvement on your next visit! More

Very nice place, we stayed on our boat, but visited friends who stayed in one of the rooms. It was clean and well furnished. I will definetly be back. Facilities appear to be well kept, but would like to see showers for us boaters.

My first time in the Bahamas was at this resort. Would've been better if our boat didn't have an issue but anyhow, our family enjoyed our trip here. Kayak, paddle boats, bikes, Hobie cats and other activities are included with room rates. And I seriously needed to mention that as we stayed at this VERY EXPENSIVE resort in Nassau after... More

I just returned from a wonderfully relaxing 5 night stay at the Old Bahama Bay. It's a lovely small resort located on the secluded west end of the island. My room was very tastefully decorated with all necessary amenities. I believe most rooms are junior suites with small kitchenettes, washer/dryer. The bathroom was very spacious with double sinks, huge soaker... More

This hotel was decent enough but would not come back. It is very dated. When we first checked in we were told be patient, towels were coming. Is 5 hours long enough to wait? My husband had to go downstairs and get them himself just so I can take a shower. Diswasher broken and leaked everywhere. Kitchen in room but... More

By far the nicest, cleanest resort and marina I have ever visited in the Bahamas. The rooms are spacious, very clean and beautifully decorated. Super family friendly and still a great party atmosphere!

We have been visiting OBB for about 10 years and it's always a good time! It's only 3 hours away from the Treasure Coast by boat and offers clean, safe, reasonable accommodations & marina. If you love to boat, fish, dive and eat fresh conch consider Old Bahama Bay. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton of Grand Bahama... More

Wow – 10 years! You have seen a lot of changes… and we cannot thank you enough for coming back year after year. You are absolutely right – Old Bahama Bay is not the Ritz and we don’t want to be.

Friendly enough people, but dated dated rooms and very dated restaurant. It seems that nobody there has seen how the world has changed over the last 25 years. Rooms seemed unclean, very old fashioned and sheets that felt old and not clean. Restaurant was the sort that your parents took you to 25 years ago

Dockhands are only as helpful as absolutely necessary. Minimal effort made. There is no feeling of welcome or hospitality. It's a shame because it's the first impression many tourists get of the Bahamas. I treated them well but got only sullen or blank faces in return which tells me they are very unhappy in their jobs.
