The other reviews were thorough in praising the cleanliness, friendliness, availability of good food and drink, etc. so I don't feel the need to reiterate.
What was most stunning to our family, was the way HHL made us feel. We've vacationed at many resorts throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean but HHL resonated with us unlike any other. It wasn't the fanciest or most expensive place we've ever stayed but it was somehow better and even more perfect. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. They seemed happy and willing to help or talk - so much more content than other islands we've visited. Tom, the manager, was a regular every day from morning coffee through dinner & drinks. Hospitality is his calling - he was always available for recommendations & insights. (His dogs were a hoot and I never heard them bark.)
We were there with our 2 17 & 18 year old kids + 2 of their friends. Not being lay-on-the-beach types, we engaged Captain Clayton Bruce Ost of SailingtheAbacos.com for 3 days and sailed & snorkeled all over the Abacos. If you can budget him into your trip - you won't be sorry.
In conclusion, if you're looking for a quaint resort to relax, feel safe, eat good food, catch a few rays and have a great drink - this place is an undiscovered gem.
