I am an avid scuba diver and had heard about Stuart Cove Tiger Beach Seafaris that is located on the grounds of the Old Bahama Bay Resort. After talking with Jerome for months (Jerome is fantastic. I must have e-mailed him 50 times and he always promptly answered my questions. I knew if I ever had any problems on the trip, Jerome would be the first person I called to get it resolved.) I decided to book a trip to the resort for my 15th wedding anniversary. Last week my wife and I enjoyed our getaway. From the moment we entered our room, we were delighted. It is a beautiful resort right on their own beach. The room was large with a stove, fridge, washer, dryer, great shower, large bath, couch, and comfortable bed. We were not expecting such a nice room. The ocean view was beautiful. The staff was friendly but at times a little slow (to be expected in the Caribbean). We especially loved Harold who we saw all over the resort. One day he was our waiter then the next day the activities coordinator. He works very hard but has a wonderful attitude. One day my wife enjoyed a massage while I went on the Tiger Beach shark dive. Though not for everyone, if you are wanting to do this it was a fantastic adventure and a dive of a lifetime. Beto the divemaster was fantastic. He put us right on the spot for 3 large Tiger sharks, numerous Lemon sharks, and a few reef sharks. The pictures I took in the clear, blue water blew me away. The resort is really working to improve its amenities. It was chilly and windy while we were there but they had available numerous beach activities from sailing to Kayaks to paddleboards. They all looked in good condition. The fitness room is good and the equipment was in good condition. All in all, the resort is a very good value for the money.
A few words of advice, if you want something ask for it. We had to ask for pots and pans for our room as well as extra towels. It might take them a while to bring them but they will bring them. I also highly recommend renting a car. It is on the West End and about an hour from anything. You will need a car to get groceries and this will save you some money. Also, bring laundry detergent for the washer and dryer. It is wonderful that they are in the room but could not wash our clothes without soap.
