We were looking for a secluded, affordable, and clean place to stay in the Bahamas. Bishop's place came very close to giving us everything we were looking for, but there were a few disappointments.
The beach - Bishop's place had the prettiest beach we saw on the island. The sand was white, the water was aqua-marine, and we pretty much had miles of beach to ourselves. A 5 minute walk down the beach and you felt like you were on a deserted island. It was a very nice get-away.
The rooms - Overall, the rooms were fine. They were very spacious, and the staff kept them amazingly clean. There is a bit of a funky smell when you first walk in (no doubt from water damage inflicted by prior hurricanes), but you stop noticing it very quickly. Also, the towels and sheets always smelled very fresh.
Location - I wanted a place that was secluded, but Bishop's is almost too secluded. The nearest grocery store and restaurant (other than Bishop's) is 40 minutes away in Freeport. It was nice to be away from the crowds, but I wished it were just a little closer to some of the other attractions on the island.
Service - I was disappointed in the service we received. Bishop is a friendly guy, but it seems like he was always trying to squeeze an extra dollar out of us. Example: I ordered the snapper for supper which is listed as $10 on the menu. After I ordered, he told me that he was having special snapper that night and the cost would be $2 higher. Not a big deal, but I didn't appreciate the constant "nickle and diming" we encountered.
Overall, we had a satifsfying experience at Bishop's.
