“Sandport Beaches Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I had read reviews of this property before booking, and the experience was consistent with reviews. The resort's best quality was the professional staff and their willingness to go the extra effort to serve you. The resort itself doesn't have the razzle dazzle of the other popular destinations on Paradise Island, but that is what we wanted. The decor is dated, but we found the rooms clean. There were issues of water pipes breaking while we were there, but all was corrected within a short time. All parts of our first room were not functional, and the staff moved us to another room to correct the situation. I strongly do not suggest a standard room on the first floor facing the pool; very dreary and no kitchenette or refrigerators. Given its location, you will want a kitchenette, unless your budget is unlimited for food. Food is pricy in the Bahamas. For a standard room, the second floor is much improved over the ground level. Suites facing the harbor were lovely and in the best shape of all the rooms; I'd stay in a suite facing the harbor to have the best experience if your budget allows.
There is access to a few good restaurants (pricy) within walking distance. Also, you can walk to local grocery store. You can also have breakfast or dinner prepared on the beach area by Sandyport's chef at the beachside bar. $10 a person for breakfast; he will cook to order a dinner.
Wonderful access to the #10 Jitney bus to take downtown; In comparrison to a lot of international bus system's I've traveled, this was a piece of cake. Jump on, pay $1.25 when getting off anywhere along the route. Its a out an back road, so you can't get lost; downside: the bus stops running around dark, usually 6:30 pm so we didn't use to go anywhere for dinner later in the evening.
Another tip nobody seems to write about: you can take the 12b Jitney right outside the resort to the airport for $2.50 a person. They run on the 1/2 hour. Sure beats the $18+ cab fees.
The hotel offers options of a boat Safari of the island, hand line fishing excursions, and snorkeling outings; very personal and fun to meet some of the other guests. Big Al runs these and was an excellent host. They are easy and accessible right at the resort. Comparable prices to other big operations on the island.
The beach access from the hotel is quiet and well maintained. It is a public beach but not very frequented. Felt private. Not a lot of beach to walk if you are wanting to really take a long walk.
There is no free internet at the hotel (could be good or bad depending on your vacation goals!)
Has a free computer and printer to check in for flights/print tickets/ search for a restaurant if you need; the lobby has a guide for local restaurants which was helpful.
Overall, a good experience; what it lacks in amenities, is made up for by hard working staff and a very laid back atmosphere. It worked well for us.

Dear Christy222,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an informed review full of insider’s tips. I am sorry that you initially experienced some issues but I am so pleased that we were able to move you to an alternative room and correct the situation. It is great to hear that “Overall” you had “a good experience”, “enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and our staff.

Thank you for highlighting some of the differences between the different room types. Your preferred room type is the One Bedroom Deluxe suite, which is our signature room. The One Bedroom Deluxe suite is also my favourite. The room is a true suite with a separate living room/ dining room to the bedroom and comes with a full kitchen and Jacuzzi bath. All One Bedroom Deluxe Suites have the best views over the Sandyport main canal and some are located on our lagoon beach. Thank you for your insight on the kitchen facilities, which can be an excellent money saver. The Studio unit has a partial kitchen including; a small stove top, microwave and small fridge. The standard hotel bedroom does not have kitchen facilities.

I do hope that you will return to visit us again and next time we will strive to get it right first time.

Kind Regards
Rowena Jones

In planning our first holiday in Nassau Bahamas, we did a lot of research on the internet hoping to find a resort hotel that was clean, affordable, not too far away from activities and most importantly --would meet our high standards. We chose Sandy Port and we must say that it was a very pleasant experience. Upon our arrival, we upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite with jacuzzi, which was very nice and spacious and we highly recommend. The hotel was in walking distance to the public bus, stores, supermarket and restaurants--very convenient. The housekeeping staff (Dale and Mary, etc) were very pleasant and very efficient. Ms. Sara, the activities director, arranged our fishing trip and we had a blast. Overall the whole staff was pleasant and very accomodating. However, Chef Cleveland is the real gem here and cooked the best meals we ever had.(fried fish was amazing) We would definitely go back for his food alone. Last but definitely not least, Sharron Riley at the front desk was truly amazing-she was extremely friendly and provided us with information about all the local places. Definitely will be coming back!

Room Tip: Suite with a jacuzzi a must for couples

Dear Kelly R,

We are so pleased that your first visit to the Bahamas was a success and even better that you are “definitely coming back”. They say that once you have sand in your shoes you will always return.

The One Bedroom Deluxe suite is our signature room and definitely my favourite. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the upgrade and the Jacuzzi. Thank you for mentioning so many of our team, we love doing what we do and are so pleased when our guests are delighted.

See you soon

Our family of 14 people ranging from grandparents to toddlers had a wonderful time!!! The employees couldn't have been more helpful! The pool was awesome with with slides! The front half is zero depth on a sandy beach then gets deeper like a regular chlorinated pool. The best of both! Cleveland cooked us the best dinner of our vacation on the beach!!! AMAZING!

Our stays over the past 10 years at The Sandyport has been a feeling of Home away from Home. The friendly staff especially Cameron has been so warm and welcoming. The Rooms offer a Tropical feeling un-matched. What is so satisfying is friends i have reffered The Resort to, has also made it There home away from Home.

Thank you,

Eleven of our dedicated volunteers stayed at Sandyport Beaches Resort during Operation Potcake. The resort was a great place to relax after a long day helping animals. The rooms are large and comfortable. The resort is conveniently located, with good restaurants within walking distance and a bus stop nearby. There is a lovely beach and pool. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Having such a lovely place to stay helped make Operation Potcake the great sucess that it was :)

Dear Bahamas Humane Society,

The entire team at Sandyport would like to say a huge thank you to the dedicated volunteers that visited Nassau during Operation Potcake. The work that was done for the animals of our island was fantastic. Thank you also for the tireless efforts that the Bahamas Humane Society makes throughout the year. It was a pleasure to be a small part of this great initiative.

Pros:
- Close to the beach which was very quiet
- Walking distance to a couple restaurant options (Twisted Lime was good)
- Large rooms which were relatively clean
- Near bus stop to take you into town

Cons:
- Horribly uncomfortable beds
- Ants in bedroom
- Rooms are very dated (parts of ceiling were coming apart in both of our bathrooms)
- Could only get a wifi signal in the corner of our back bedroom (and paid $60/wk for it)
- We were told there was a continental breakfast available but never saw anything other than a coffee machine (Maxwell house or something like that - nothing special)

We weren't in the Bahamas to hang out in our room all day so it worked okay, but we probably would not stay here again.

Dear KimberlyC,

Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us at Sandyport on your recent vacation and for your valuable feedback. I am sorry to hear about the condition of your room, which does not meet our normal standards and we have since rectified.

Our rooms are decorated in a tropical, island feel, which we hope represents our environment. I do appreciate that this is not for everyone. The majority of the rooms are individually decorated with some being quite neutral so we can try to accommodate varying tastes, just let us know.

Regarding Breakfast we do have a few options available. The News Café in the Sandyport Marina village has recently opened and serves various breakfast options. One of our guest’s favourite though is Chef Clevland who cooks to order on our lagoon beach. You do need to order in advance as he shops specifically for your meal. While you would expect your own chef would be expensive he is in fact very reasonable. There is also Wendy’s a short walk away at the end of the Sandyport Development. The majority of our rooms do have kitchen facilities which also make breakfast both easy and economical. Please note the hotel bedroom does not have kitchen facilities but does have a coffee maker.

We do hope that you change your mind about returning. Please do let me know if you are as I will ensure that your vacation is much improved and that we make up for our deficiencies on this trip.

Kind Regards
Rowena Jones
