just read the "real" reviews below. Good help must be impossible to find in Marsh Harbour. If your boat runs out of gas, you can get food (eventually) and a warm bed, but that's about all this place is good for.

The Abaco Beach Resort and Boat Harbour Marina is not Atlantis (which is not the Bahamas anyway, in my opinion), but it is the quality we enjoy in the U.S. without losing the Bahamas feel. I've been coming here for years and have stayed in the villas, the rooms and on a boat in their nearly 200 slip marina. The... More

First time visitor to Marsh Harbour and used this hotel prior to picking up a Yacht charter. Its ok but nothing special. Very quiet when we were there and its focus seems to be on hosting fishing groups. Rooms are large and motel like and we ate at the bar a couple of time which is fine for snacks. In... More

The hotel has a run-down feel to it. Decor and plumbing looking old - both sinks in our room leaked. Service is average and staff not particularly friendly. Card system for beach towels exemplifies their lack of customent focus. Food was OK but expensive. Overall a 3 star experience with 5 star prices.

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Abaco Beach Resort in the Bahamas. It was absolute paradise. Everyone was so friendly and the Goombay Smashes were crazy great! Food was yummy and our outings on the water were just dreamy. I had never paddle boarded before and seeing turtles darting beneath the board was an out of body experience... More

Hi Judy – Thank you for your kind words. We are thrilled to hear that you had the chance to head out on our new Turtle Crawl experience! Even for those of us who live here in the islands seeing sea turtles can still be an out of body experience. We hope it’s not long before your next visit. We’ll... More

After a warm welcome and high expectations upon arrival I have been soundly disappointed by the service during my stay. Despite a facility showing it's age the room was very clean and appears to be recently renovated. All of the rooms also appear to have a nice waterfront view and the resort is conveniently located to restaurants, etc in Marsh... More

I've long wanted to visit The Abacos, having heard of the world class fishing, fantastic diving and snorkeling and authentic out-island experience. I recently spent four nights at the Abaco Beach Resort in Marsh Harbour and I can't wait to get back!
