“Every need was met for our wedding in Harbour Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The Beautiful Valentine's Marina is where we docked after having our nuptials on our boat, just outside of the Harbour. Hans Moncur, Manager, was our "go-to man", arranging everything to cocktails/dinner at the restaurant for our group, to lining up a local photographer and singer/guitarist. He even suggested a painted driftwood sign as a keepsake, made by a local artisan. All of this on VERY short notice. Valentine's is lucky to have such an asset as Hans Moncur!
Our guests surprised us with a suite for our wedding night at the resort and it was well appointed and very comfortable. The entire staff was wonderful and we are already planning a return trip back to the marina. Hats off to a top notch facility and experience!!

Roomy, well appointed rooms. Wonderful bar. Very convenient location very close to all of the best of Harbour Island. Staff is always kind and helpful. I have stayed at this property many times and always had a good experience. Marina is as good as it gets.

Valentina's marina and hotel is the best in the Bahamas, and we have visited them all! As boater's, we value a safe and secure marina, but Valentine's is much more than that. Marcus, the dock master, and his assistant Peter, are always available for any of our needs, and make our time there feel like a home away from home. The office staff provides great concierge services, as well as provide free towel and chair service on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We have never stayed in the resort rooms, but the bar/restaurant is always lively and the pool and patio are lovely! We visit at least twice a summer, and always leave looking forward to our next trip to Valentine's!

What an excellent review – we are touched that you think Valentines is the best marina in the Bahamas! Hopefully you will try out one of our suites on a future visit… you won’t be disappointed! Until then…..

Our family and friends have been staying at Valentine's for years. This property is absolutely gorgeous, but the local staff makes it feel like we are returning home. Perfect place for a group or family reunion. Kurt & Vanessa will treat you like a VIP from the time you arrive.
The housekeeping staff will welcome your children and greet you with a big smile.
Del Rose, Rosena and the entire staff are just warm lovely people.
Valentines is the perfect backdrop for lifetime memories!

Arrived by boats and stayed for 4 days. To our surprise our friends ended up getting married on Saturday. At last minute the marina was able to accommodate a singer, a painter to paint on driftwood for the couple and a beautiful hotel suite for the honeymoon night to include a heart shaped made of flowers with painted driftwood displayed and a bottle of wine. We had an excellent dinner that evening, as well as, cocktails and lunches at Rooster Tail Bar as the days went by. Golf carts were provided immediately when requested. The facilities were very clean. Hans, the manager, did an awesome job. We did have some problems with power but we have experienced that at every island we visited on the 3 week trip. I was very pleased and would not hesitate to go back.

My husband and I vacationed on Harbour Island for 10 days at the end of April. Although we didn't stay at Valentine's we discovered it early on in our trip as we were exploring the island. We stopped for a cocktail at the outdoor bar and ended up having dinner as well. I had the catch of the day which was grilled snapper and my husband had the Seafood Pasta Trio. Dinner was excellent and the staff was wonderful. We enjoyed the people and food so much we ate there 3 times during our 10 day stay. Eleanor and Inez served us on our first visit and greeted us with smiles both times after. Kurt assisted my husband with a slight issue and stopped us on the street a few days later while we were exploring the island. We had a great conversation with him and he too greeted us with a handshake and smile each time we stopped in. We enjoyed Chellesia as our server on our last visit. We had a wonderful experience each time and will definitely come back the next time we are on your beautiful island!

We rented a one bedroom with a marina view. The room was clean and updated. The furnishings were top quality. The room had a small refrigerator and coffee maker. From our balcony we had a water and marina view. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The pool area was very relaxing. Valentines is not on the ocean side however they have a private beach area only a few minutes away on your golf cart. We had a great time walking out on the marina and looking at all the large boats at night.. The restaurant is good and also the attached shopping. We even rented a jet ski one day. The next time I'm in Harbour Island I will be staying again at Valentines.
