“Wonderful Stay at Valentines Resort & Marina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Our stay at Valentines was just WONDERFUL and totally relaxing. One of the best vacations ever. We stayed in a 2 story condo where all the finishings were most comfortable. Also having coffee in the morning sitting at the Marina deck was perfect for us.

The Chef at Valentines was outstanding and his presentations were most creative. The food was so good we had dinner at the restaurant every night - why go out!

We are already planning our next vacation there. The staff and managemnet at Valentines need to be complemented for doing a great job and helping us enjoy our stay. We recommend the hotel to all.

Room Tip: the 2 story condo - you will feel like you are staying in a house not a hotel room!

We stayed here 2 weeks ago and had a fantastic time. We had our 9 month old baby with us and this was our first time travelling outside the UK with her but the hotel was wonderful. The cot was delivered to our room on arrival and our room was very clean. The hotel is in a great location. You can watch the sunset from the bar and there are 2 excellent restaurants within 200 yards. The restaurant at the hotel is also excellent. We mostly ate at the hotel. All the staff are friendly and helpful and they made a fuss of my daughter. OK its not on the beach but it is a 10 minute walk or 2 minutes on a golf buggy as pretty much all visitors rent one and is a great way to see the island. If i go to harbour island i will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful colonial hotel in the very center of Harbour Island, Bahamas. Even if it has not a beach in front if it you can easly reach the stunning pink sand beach on foot or by a golf car (you can easily rent it at the reception). The athmospheare is colorful and relaxing. I would recommend it.

The rate we got the Hotel Room for was phenominal about $150 per night, (nothing even close to $1500, maybe high season?) the rooms were amazing, very clean and a great location with consistent tempurature of 28degrees Celsius. We were able to walk from the port to the hotel in about 5 minutes. I would most definetly stay again,

The price we had already paid was enough to expect a super service. Nobody carries the luggage or goes with you till the room. You have to find the room by yourself after some indication given in the concierge. In the room the conditioning air was not working ( fortunarly we didn't need it ), as the TV and the safe also. The third bed and the third set of towel took at least three hours to be brought and prepared. Everything was fixed by the maintenance during the next day. Actually is not a resort: you rent a room whose situation depend on how much the owner keep it. Everything you want to do (diving, snorkeling, kayaking ) is completely apart from the hotel and very expensive. If you walk 10 meters on the left you will find the same services at a lower price and whithout having to wait for confirmation or place as you were asking for a favor and not paying for it. Other hotels even if they are not on the beach offer comodities on the sand, but not Valentine, you have to rent the chairs from somebody else. I did not see the Spa Center and there was no fitness center. Finally we were practically thrown out of the room at 12pm even if one of us was sick e our taxi will pick us at 3pm.
Harbour Island is very nice and I can tell we had a wonderful time there. I surely would go again, but I will choose another hotel.

Thank you for posting your comments about your recent stay at Valentines Resort. We are sorry to hear that you had an issue with your room, but very glad to hear the situation was resolved for you. As for not being helped upon check-in, we do our best to provide staff to assist with luggage and we will have to look into why that did not occur during your visit. Valentines does actually offer complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas as well as an on-property spa (Island Spa) and again, we apologize that these were not more effectively brought to your attention. Your comments are valuable to us so that we can continue to improve our service. We do hope to welcome you back in the near future.

We held our wedding rehearsal dinner at The Boathouse at Valentines in May 2012. The service, the atmosphere, and the food were all exquisite. The team at Valentines worked with us several months leading up to the dinner to plan out the night's events, ensuring we had the right amount of seating, finalizing the menu, and even helping us to coordinate a projector for our slideshow and booking a junkanoo band to surprise our guests. The chef did an impeccable job on the menu (his wings recipe was my favorite) and wine pairings, and CJ's desserts were flawless. Our evening was perfect and I would highly recommend The Boathouse at Valentines for any special evening on Harbour Island.
