Booked the hotel through Grand Bahama Scuba via email..
Cost for cab from airport is about 20 to 23 US$.
Reception was excellent, sorted me out with a key in minutes. Room was a 1 bed self catering and it was massive. Lovely bed, shower, cooking and living areas with a view onto the canal system and out to the sea.. (2 beds also available)
Rooms may have previously been described as dated, but there were workmen busy painting and making things nice... They re-vamped 4 condos whilst I was there, and frankly the one I was in was fine..Its nice to see a complex re invest money in itself to make better..
Free safe in the room, coffee maker, microwave, VT, iron and board..
The meals in the bar area were good and not expensive....ideal if you are on vacation and dont want to cook..
There is internet connection either with your own machine or one of the hotel computers at $5 per day or $25 per week.. Which is a lot better than what I was charged in Nassau at $10 for 30 mins!!
Pool is very clean and of a good size..there is also a small pool, this was being retiled whilst I was there..
Now the good bit...the staff are FANTASTIC, typical of almost all the Bahamian people they are quiet and reserved but if you smile and say hello they just grin from ear to ear.. They couldn't do enough for me, Its a timeshare/condo complex with a customer service second to none..
Car hire is available at Ocean Reef, so dont worry about getting one at the airport..
There are lots of things organised, and various trips you can go on, however I just used my mornings (9am -2pm) scuba diving with Fred and his team at Grand Bahama Scuba... They treated me very well and divers were made to feel like part of an extended family on the boat.. who were looked after very well... rather than just treated like cattle..I looked at the other dive operators but would recomend this one...and I have been diving over 20 years so I know what to look for..
A cab into Port Lucya is roughly $12 and this is where the night life is, casino, bars, restaurants etc..
If flying into Freeport from Nassau (where the UK flights go) you can make a return trip with Bahamas air for about $170.. phone
