“Room was beautiful, spacious and quiet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

I was traveling for work and I didn't actually get to pick which hotel I was at. Although it was a 1.5 mile walk to pretty much everything (although if you ask the natives here, they will tell you a 5-10 minute walk), we really enjoyed the quiet and calm of our hotel location. Everything closer to the Atlantis and shops was so busy and noisy. We ended up walking almost every day because it took forever to wait on a taxi. The only issue we really had was that there were no instructions on how to operate the in room safe and we waited for a couple hours for someone to come to our room and help us. We just ended up leaving and coming back because we were tired of waiting. Also, possibly because we pre-paid our reservation, I was unable to use an international calling card to call home and check on our infant son which kind of bummed us out. I had even contacted the front desk and they said they would fix it, but it never worked. And they use a powder to wash all the linens and towels in the room and I ended up being allergic to this and woke up the first morning with a swollen face and puffy eyes, but they do state this in their in room directory. I just ended up making sure I didn't lay with my face directly on the pillow. Housekeeping was thourough and polite and never bothered us but was typically available if we needed them. They also refilled our "in room water" which was available for $2 a bottle which was actually the cheapest we found. The appliances in our room were fantastic--all brand new, matching, name brand stainless steel. The wi-fi didn't work half the time we were there, but I feel like this was typical of the Bahamas and not just this hotel. We had even walked to the Atlantis and attempted to pay to use theirs to Skype with our nanny and 9 month old baby and we couldn't get it to work. The restaurant behind the hotel was ok. Kind of pricey for what you received but we never received any thing that didn't taste ok. The service was great, We just wish is would have been open for breakfast as the hotel doesn't offer breakfast. The restaurant usually opened around 4, their hours say 4 but we learned on Bahama time, it's usually when someone gets around to it. We would definately stay here again, I just wish it wasn't so far from another restaurant choice and that the Columbus Tavern didn't block our complete view of the Marina (from the room we had). The pool was very cold, but I doubt the pools in the Bahamas are heated so I kind of expected this as we were there in February. I manage a hotel and I have to say, I was presently surprised by this hidden secret!

Room Tip: I think all of their rooms are typically the same. I know they have differen options, but the room w...

Loved the PHC, away from the noise of Atlantis but 1 mile away down the beach or side walk. A short 5 mins walk to the the beach or take the shuttle. The beach in the other direction was much better than the Atlantis beach, cleaner & quieter. A shuttle was available every day to take you to Nassua. We took it one day then walked another time. After reading other reviews we checked our bag and took food, snacks, canned tuna, salmon, cheese, tortillas, crackers, coffee a box of wine. Food is very expensive. We found a food store in Nassau by the dock and picked up salad fixings.It was great to have a kitchen. The great surprise was the Columbus Taven on site. Only open for dinner, great happy hr. drinks and free conch fritters. Food was very good and one of the less expensive places to eat. Bar/wait staff very friendly. Weds. was Salsa night, lots of fun.

Room Tip: Having a balcony/patio was great. You can watch the boats in the marina.

All inclusive and just across the street from the Marina at Paradise Island, this is a great cost-conscious alternative. While the beach may not be gorgeous, you're a short trip away from other public beaches to enjoy. The pool is great - kids will have a blast.

We stayed at the Paradise Harbour Club and Marina last week and we had such a great time! The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are huge and very clean and it's a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The kitchen is a really good size with pretty much everything you need to cook your own meals. It's about a 5-10 min walk to beautiful Cabbage Beach and about a 25min walk to all the shops and banks on Paradise Island. If walking isn't your choice, the taxi is $3-$4/person. You can also borrow a bike to explore the island, just be careful because people drive a little crazy. We also spent a bit of time at the Columbus Tavern, which is on the same property at the PHC. The staff are so friendly and made the vacation that much more enjoyable! I would definitely recommend this hotel! Also, if traveling to Paradise Island or Nassau, you much go see Action Jackson's show! He is the Limbo King and you will not be dissapointed!

Room Tip: We stayed on the main floor in room 103, which was very nice! It also has easy access to the pool.

We stayed at Paradise Harbor Club and Marina from September 24th through October 1st.
The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful right from the time we arrived.
We had a 2 bedroom unit, and it was very roomy, large complete kitchen with full stove with oven. The balcony was spacious and even included a small towel rack for your wet towels from the beach/pool so you don’t have to hang them on the chairs. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere, surrounded by other condo complexes all overlooking the marina side of the island. When we arrived at the airport, we asked the taxi driver to stop at a liquor store for beer and soda. We bought enough to last us a few days. The resort does have a grocery run every Monday, but we did not take advantage of that. We did hear from others at the resort, the grocery store that they take you to is large like one you would find in the United States and that there was a liquor store right across the street. We just went to the Paradise Island Beach Resort to pick up a few things we needed since we like to shop together and figured the $7 each savings ($14 total) from the grocery run would offset the cost of the higher prices on Paradise Island. But, I would suggest that if you plan to cook every meal in your unit, go on the grocery store run.
In the unit the floors were not the cleanest, I wore sandals all the time inside. The pool was very nice, clean, and had tropical setting all around it, and overlooking the marina.

Columbus Tavern is a very friendly open air restaurant, with a large bar on the upper area and the tables around the outer open area overlooking the marina. The Happy Hour is for mixed drinks only, they keep the beer prices at $4 at all times (which is the cheapest we found anywhere). But you always get a complimentary plate of conch fritters during happy hour. I am not a seafood lover, but these were very good!

We walked to the beach a few times and this is where the other resort is to buy some groceries. The beach was very clean and very quiet compared to further down where the Atlantis resort is.

Also a very easy to walk to is Atlantis, we just went into the casino to go to the sports book area and there is also an outdoor mall with many shops and restaurants. There is also another small mall across the street near the bridge where there is a liquor store and a small drug store. Under the bridge closest to the resort there is a small outdoor bar called the Green Parrot, we had great burgers and fried calamari.

We also took a trip to Nassau for an afternoon, it is quite an experience. There was an area along the harbor side with all the vendors selling their wares under various canvas covers, this is a temporary home for the straw market. The downtown area has many nice shops and restaurants where we ate lunch at the Athenian Restaurant. Besides having local type restaurants, there are also many familiar names such as Hard Rock Café, Senior Frogs, and even Burger King, Mc Donald’s, and Subway.

Cab fare from the resort to downtown was $11, but the resort does supply a free shuttle to downtown every day. Also cab fare to/from the resort from the airport was approx. $35.

always traveled to all inclusive, too much to eat, too much to drink crazy,PHC gave me the opportunity to simply relax, i could not beleive there was no loud music or drunk tanned people, instead I found the sound of boats and I could actually listen to the night fall, sounds crazy but true, in no time I found myself deep into a book, jesus I was reading again and falling sleep pool side crazy,when you arrive at the airport tell your driver you want to go shopping before you get to PHC, make sure you know if you have a full kitchen or a microwave in your room, shop light the basic beer and wine to hold you for a couple of days some can goods, chips and water, make sure you get water do not touch the water bottles in your room the cost is over $2.00 per, you will love the staff, you will love the place

My friend, fiance, and sister came to Bahamas to celebrate my sis b-day. We travel a lot so we always look for nice hotels. Well this time we took our travel agent advice because he been before. Hr said the hotel was nice and it was in a good area. Needless to say the hotel value was horrible. The rooms look old, rust was on the towel racks, brown water came from the sink and tub. The beds was hard. Make sure you get a view that face the pool because the islandview is bad all you see is a rust yard. Breakfast was good, dinner and lunch was not. The bar and grill by the pool was the best ever especially the drinks. The services was awesome everybody was polite. Their pool was nice and clean.
