The staff makes you feel so welcome from the start. The food is amazing and also the homemade desserts....yummy! The natural and unspoiled beautiful surroundings are like nothing I have ever seen. You can be the only one on the beach for miles and really connect to nature. So great to snorkel right off the beach and under the dock..amazing!... More

Thanks so much for that wonderful review. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Truly disconnecting and enjoying nature is a rare treat these days and we are happy you got to experience that on our beautiful island. That, plus tasty desserts makes for a winning combination. We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2016

We just returned from a great trip to Small Hope Bay Lodge. We went with our two daughters (ages 9 and 13) and had a wonderful time. The staff was incredible; professional yet laid back with excellent customer service yet you felt like family. The setting is spectacular; right on a gorgeous beach with warm tropical waters. The food —... More

2 1/2 years ago, my husband planned a 2nd honeymoon for the 2 of us after 35 1/2 years of marriage. The whole experience was phenomenal!!! We had 3 great fishing trips with Glister, who was a wonderful guide!! It couldn't have been more perfect....or so we thought. This year, we returned to Small Hope Bay Lodge from August 4,... More

LHBL is like no other place that I've been. It's an unpretentious slice of heaven for divers. Others will enjoy it as well, but this is really the most dive focused place that I've been to. The other thing that makes it unique is the staff, it is really like a big family. Most are young with a couple of... More

I read the reviews and packed up our family of 6 and off we went to Andros. I figured the kids would be upset with the limited wifi, which for that matter is turned off for happy hour and dinner.

My family recently enjoyed a 1-week vacation where we split our time between 2 completely different style resorts: The Atlantis Coral Towers (Paradise Island, Bahamas) and the Small Hope Beach Lodge resort (Andros, Bahamas). We enjoyed both places thoroughly, but after several days at the ever-bustling Atlantis (and the “sensory overload” that goes with it), we were ready to escape... More

This is a wonderful, casual, older (1960s) resort with every room near the water's edge. The rooms are basic, clean, and decorated with local fabrics. The lighting for reading in bed is good, otherwise why spend time in your room? Breakfast is traditional and includes a Bahamaian option. Lunch and dinner are excellent and always feature some dishes with local... More
