My wife and I recently decided to take a scuba vacation in Nassau at one of Royal Holiday's properties, the Wyndham Nassau Resort /Crystal Palace Casino. Big mistake. At one time, this place may have been what's happening, but now it is well, well past its prime. The rooms, and hallways show clearly that there has been little attention to maintenance for sometime. The casino was a joke, maybe 100 slot machines, but all of the gaming tables were closed. The height of the action there consisted of 25 to 30 dejected looking patrons sullenly playing slots. There was a bar, but it was dark dingy and lifeless as well. There are two relatively small restaurants, the food is pretty good, but overpriced. The only highlight was that you could take a bus from in front of the property, and for $1.25 go into downtown Nassau. You just had to finish up early because bus service stopped at 6 PM, and a taxi would cost you $15 to get back to the hotel. Also, be prepared to pay another $60 in taxes, per night, for the privilege of staying in the Bahamas. All in all, our vacation wasn't terrible, as my wife and I are not too difficult please, But this is not a property that we would want to return to, nor can we recommend it to anyone else.
Good News. There is a lot of new construction going on in the immediate area, and according to what we were told, and the pictures that we saw, there are plans to completely refurbish and develop the area there to rival Paradise Island. So, that might be good news for a few years down the road, but I really can't recommend going there now. I have to admit a certain amount of disappointment with Royal Holiday as well, this is the second time that we have gone on vacation at a very tired Holiday property.
