We arrived by our boat on Fri 8/30 and stayed 3 nights. Getting in the marina and clearing customs was a breeze. All the dock attendants were nice and helpful. The beach was perfect, secluded and shallow enough for little ones. Paddleboards and the kayaks that were included for guest use were in good condition. The tiki bar & restaurant was awesome! Definitely have to get conch fritters and a rum runner or a goombay smash. It's a small resort which was perfect because it wasn't that long a of a walk from the pool and the beach to the dock. The pool was clean but it would have been nice to have a jacuzzi for at night when it gets a little colder with the breeze. Us girls had planned a "spa time" at 5pm Saturday night and we had booked this 3 weeks in advance to make sure we got our spot. We showed up at the massage room and no one was there, the door was locked and lights were off. So we walked down to the activities hut and asked Harold the activities director about our massages. Apparently there was a mix up and the massage therapists were not notified of our appointments. So he quickly called 2 of his therapists to see if they could come quickly. It being my birthday I was looking forward to some girl time and getting a massage. We waited an hour and a half before someone finally arrived. However only one therapist arrived and there was 3 girls and only 2 massage tables. The other 2 girls decided not get the massages due to it being almost 7pm and they are an hour long each. So I was the only one to get a massage. Cecile was wonderful! The second therapist never showed up. The massage was excellent. The cost of an hour massage was a little over priced but having a massage in the Bahamas was worth it.
