“Feb 2013 Annual Vacay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is dated but is kept clean all amenities work including hot water, a/c, tv. Also, it wasn't too nice that my husband and I had to smush the two single beds together in our double occupancy room. The water smells a bit funny so bottled water is DEFINITELY recommended. We weren't too keen on the lobby hagglers trying to sell timeshares but once you respectfully and firmly decline you should be alright. Lastly and thankfully, the food was always fresh, on time and abundant.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from a week at PIHR and glad to share our wonderful experience there !! We went there not knowing what to expect, due to mixed reviews we read beforehand . Our room was a little dated , but for what we wanted ... clean,adequate space a great view of the harbor, cruise ships ,Atlantis resort, and nice quiet sleeping on the 10th floor ! The staff , from Michelle& Lashelle at the front desk, to Antonio,Onero & Ronen at the door, to Antia &Montez at the poolside bar... were Amazing ! Friendly,helpfull, and informitive, they made our trip turn out wonderfull ! Dennis at the pool with Bahama Divers hooked us up with snorkeling, which was unbelievable ! This place is ideally located to go to beautiful Cabbage Beach, Atlantis, shops , the harbor, and to just take a walk ! The all-inclusive just made it just that more worthwhile to stay here ! Excellent drinks and food from beer to bahama drinks to burgers to yellowfin tuna suppers !!! Back on the diet now !! We would go back and stay here in a heartbeat ! Excellent value !!

My boyfriend and I traveled to Bahamas for the first time and absolutely loved it! We've been to Cuba and Dominican but Bahamas has taken our hearts. We loved this resort, especially the people and the food. The front desk clerks were incredibly polite and went out of their way to help make us comfortable during our stay. The bellboys, Antonio and Denaro were helpful, fun and very friendly! The housekeeping staff were welcoming and did a fine job at keeping our rooms tidy and sand free! The activities members, especially Sean, Shawny, and Tavaris became very personable with us and looked forward to us joining in on the beach volleyball games, dancing, and overall just hanging out and having a great time. All of the chefs and waiters/waitresses, the omelette lady were very sweet and quick at their job. Not to mention the FOOD was INCREDIBLE!!!! Fresh vegetables, salads, chicken, BBQ'd steak, wings, mixed salads, desserts... everything! We didn't miss a meal due to the quality and variety. The BEACH (Cabbage beach) was a walking distance of 10-15 mins and was full of vendors and the waves were too huge to enjoy the water. We didn't last very long there. We enjoyed the man-made beach directly on the resort, NIce and quiet, the servers would bring us drinks and food, and the water was calm as we watched boats sail by. The pool was good too, large and never over-crowded. No complaints here! As goes for tourist attractions, we checked out the straw market - nothing special, just crafts and trinkets. The Bahamians are always trying to sell for more than the products are worth so just barter with them. We checked out the Atlantis during the day because we bought a $35 sea-lion experience. This was great because it got us into the atlantis without paying a hefty $125 for the day. We walked around, checked out the beach and saw the sea lions and dolphins! Cameras are allowed! The Atlantis is FREE after 6:30pm and you can go in and look at the massive underground aquarium, and shark tank called Predators Lagoon - a must see - The place is really neat all lit up at night. Makes for a romantic stroll and only a 5 minute walk from harbour resort. Also check out the casino. We also did a BOOZE CRUISE.. a vendor on the beach sold us our tickets for $55 each where as at the hotel, they charge WAY MORE for excursions!!! This cruise was wicked fun. Lots of booze, dancing, food, snorkeling and views of the island. Every single person we met on this trip made everything worth while!.
If we were to critique- I'd say the bed in our room was awful. So outdated and uncomfortable - and I am not a picky person. We paid $1050 each all inclusive and encountered one of the best trips we've ever been on. We will definitely be back if the price is still right after renovations in June-December. <3 I could go on and on about more details but go find out for yourselves~!!

Room Tip: Island or Harbour view and 6th floor up otherwise you hear the live band til late.

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at the Paradise Island Harbor Resort from Jan 28, 2013 until Feb. 4, 2013. He had read some bad reviews about the place so are expectations were not great. However, it was wonderful. Yes, the rooms need some updating but they were clean and spacious. The all inclusive deal was fantastic. The buffet always had fresh vegetables and fruit and choices of meat and fish. The drinks were plentiful and good. The greatest thing was the staff. Shawny and Sean led the activities. They were perfect for the job. What outstanding personalities and enthusiasm. Even Alfred who doesn't get much credit selling his cigarettes was pleasant and fun. We walked to Atlantis, where the rich and famous must go, and couldn't wait to get back to our quiet, fiendly, and homey resort. Thank you to all who made our trip the best. It's the best deal for your money!!!!

My husband and I just returned from Harbour Resort and I could not wait to post a review. This place was fantastic! For the price, you could not find a better place for a last minute getaway. I was very skeptical after reading the reviews but I decided to check it out for myself. Just in case, I packed my own towels, sheets and pillowcases. NO NEED!! This place was spotless! If you are looking for a "beautiful beach" vacation spot, this is NOT the place nor is the island of New Providence. Many of the previous reviews stated that the food was horrible. To us, the food was excellent! The choices were limited but what was available was very nicely prepared and quite tasty. The resort itself is old but very well maintained.The pool was small but never too crowded and likewise, their little private beach was combed clean every am. The staff is quite pleasant and helpful. We would return to this resort again if the opportunity presents itself.

My wife and I just returned from a 4 night stay. We read all the reviews before going and had no big expectations of the resort, especially for the price.

The bad: The resort is a little run down and in need of repair which will be taken care of starting in the summer of 2013 as the resort was purchased by Warwick International Hotels. We probably will not be able to afford the new renovated resort. Too bad.

The good: Our room was 624(island view) and faced Atlantis/ north west view. Yes, our room overlooked the industrial area but it did not bother us as the harbour with large yachts is located right behind it and I was fascinated watching the boats. The room itself was very good, clean and we did not have any complaints. No balcony which is my only gripe.

The food was excellent everyday. Theresa makes an awesome omelet. Good variety each day and the different theme for supper each night was great. The fine dining was also great. I had the steak and my wife had the lemon pepper fish. Great taste.

Antia and Daniel gave great service in the outdoor bar area. Fantastic drinks and very friendly.

The beach is man made. I preferred this beach over the large cabbage beach which everyone raves about. There were too many people at cabbage beach and the locals kept asking you to purchase items or rent jet skis, etc. Our beach was nice and quiet and I could still grab a drink when I got thirsty.

Some other people have also complained that the resort overlooks the shipping harbour
I was mesermized by the boats, both shipping and large yachts that would travel by. I found myself just sitting on the dock watching the boats more than reading or swimming. kinda of like sitting on the dock at a cottage.

The water is a small fenced in area. You can snorkel but not sure how much you will see. If you want great snorkelling, go on a snorkelling tour for the day.

The only real complaint I had was with our flight times which is more a complaint with Sunwing than the resort. We arrived at 1035pm at the resort which meant no food. Then we had to leave by 7am to catch our flight. Again, the restaurant is not open until 7.

Our overall experience with Paradise Island Harbour Resort was excellent. Small resort, not too busy, clean and excellent food/drinks. You can't ask for much more.

Room Tip: island views have 2 windows whereas the water view only has 1. Try to get above the 5th floor.
