My wife and I just returned fom Old Bahama Bay and we were disappionted with the trip. Old Bahama Bay has the potential to be a nice resort, the rooms are great, the beach is beautiful, and its location makes it easy to get to. You are just steps away from the beach at all times. But we felt as though no one was running the resort. The wait staff was polite, but slow. Housekeeping made you feel as though you were a bother, and the spa exsisted, yet we had the feeling no one wanted to open it up for us. It was run like a summer camp, not a luxury resort (which would make sense, because it is not). I would not recommend this place to anyone who was not traveling by boat. The marina seemed to be the heart of OBB. Many families were docked there in 30- 60 foot boats, and they were allowed to use the resort's restaurants, bars, and beaches. Old Bahama Bay was not sprayed for bugs one time during our six day stay. Not once. The bugs were awful. I am still scratching my legs and arms. We had a relaxing vacation; enjoyed the beaches, relaxation, food and rooms, but I will never return. There are too many nicer places. SLH should take them out of the book.
