“Blue bar restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We had lunch here twice and really enjoyed the stunning setting and the conch and rice dishes.Service was good.The expanse of beach it overlooks is worth the visit alone.We looked around the resort as well as a possible future place to stay but it looks on the edge of not so well maintained so passed on that idea.

We've just returned from Harbour Island,The Bahamas, a place that we refer to as our favourite vacation destination. This time we tried something different and stayed at Pink Sands Resort. This five star property is exquisitely manicured from the front gate through to the side-roads that meander to our private beach house ... perched on a bluff, overlooking the world famous Pink Sands Beach ... the view is magnificent.
On most mornings we'd open the doors to our massive deck and watch the sun rise, a ritual that was always served-up with a hot cup of coffee and a profound sense of connection. And, ooh, those wonderful breakfasts, followed by a long walk along the beach...there's not a better way in the world to start the day.
Thank you, Mark Kitchen and team for your warmth, hospitality and helping hands that have given us a lifetime of memories. We'll be back!

We stayed at a private home on the Island, but had one of our favorite experiences at the Blue Bar Restaurant at the Pink Sands. My wife and I and our friends (another couple) took a cooking class with Chef Ed. He was a great teacher and we enjoyed preparing a delicious meal under his expert instruction. We made a seared tuna dish, ceviche, and a grouper dish with pineapple salsa. I would recommend having a few beers during class and going with a huge appetite--it ends up being a ton of food. In a week of highlights, this was a standout experience. Thanks to Ed, Latoya, and al the great staff at the Pink Sands. We can't wait for another visit.

Just got back from another visit to Pink Sands. This time it was with a large group and they made all 60 of us happy (not easy to do). This is one of the best get a ways in the Bahamas and you have to remember that you are in the "out islands" of the Bahamas. Remote and a bit of a challenge to get to but worth it if you like a small quiet place to get away.

Pink Sands has been on my list of places to stay for a long time. So I was thrilled when a business meeting took me there! Mark, the general manager greeted us upon arrival and was a most excellent host! Their cottages were large and very well appointed. There were 2 large master bedrooms, connected via a living room, and the whole side of the cottage was glass windows and doors with lovely views. When I travel, I want a large master and this more than exceeded my expectations! The bed was not only very comfortable, but had very nice linens and pillows. Housekeeping came in at least twice a day and always left the room immaculate. The area off the bar was transformed into a wonderful meeting room for our group and again, Mark was very attentive and accommodating no matter what the request. It was the best meeting I have ever attended! However Pink Sands is named for the incredible pink sand beaches! Always listed amongst the top beaches in the world, it is an incredibly beautiful beach, with miles of pink sand. And the waters are stunning! One of the other things I was really surprised about was just how good their food was! We ate every morning at the restaurant on the beach.. Gorgeous sunrises with coffee, one of life's greatest pleasures! The staff could not be more attentive, accommodating every request. Their grouper sandwich was the best I have ever eaten, and living in Florida, I get a lot of grouper! Same with their conch fritters... Yummy! They offer a cooking class, which many in our group took and loved... We did rent golf carts which is a must do in order to easily get around the property and picturesque town of Harbour Island. Some might be tempted to save a little and stay at Coral Sands. Don't. My co worker was there and it was a very very tiny room.. Bugs... For $400.. Not!
Pink Sands is an incredible resort with wonderful staff, accommodations and world class food! Book it today!

This is a beautiful island. We went to all good resturants and had a very enjoyable time. If you like the beach this place is for you. Be sure and get a golf cart because this is the only way to get around on this island. We flew out of Fort Lauderdale and I would strongly advise going out of Miami on American airlines. Very casual ....bathing suit and shorts and flip flops is all you need.The one thing is do not think because of the price the room is going to be beautiful because they are not. The bathrooms are the worst. This place has beautiful views .....but it really needs to be updated

Room Tip: The rooms on the ocean have beautiful views!

Trip from hell is a little bit of an overreaction! I would just say that I agree with their thoughts that the rooms are overpriced. The bathrooms especially need a complete re-do. Compared with other hotels on the island and what they charge pink sands needs to reduce their prices until they are able to remodel at least the bathrooms. The positive is that they are very private and quiet. I have stayed in other hotels on the island where you can hear the people next door and they are not beach front. I disagree with the comments on the staff. They could not be more welcoming and always there to help. There was a rather large group there and I think that a few times they got overloaded but for the most part they were always friendly and pleasant and there to help when needed. Food was always good and you cannot beat the atmosphere.
