If you are wondering what the title of my review means, then read on my friend. We were lucky enough to join our good friends on a dive trip to Small Hope Bay. This was our first time and our friends second. My first impression was a great place to do some diving and relax with friends. Little did I... 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

When we left Small Hope Bay Lodge, our taxi was waiting and we didn't have a chance to thank each of the staff and say goodbye to the other guests. We felt a bit like we were leaving the party too soon without thanking the hosts! If that doesn't explain the unbelievable hospitality and welcoming atmosphere of this resort, I... More

Amazing staff, beautiful local, great food, so much fun! It's like family camp for a vacation. We had a wonderful time and met some really fun people while we were there. The lodging is rustic, but comfortable and fits the feel of the place.

We've known about SHB since 2004 and have been wanting to come here based on all the good things we've heard. Our 5 night stay was focused on diving after a 3-day bonefishing trip/stay and Bair's Lodge on south Andros.
