Could not have been better. Cheryl and her staff couldnt have done more for us- very friendly. Even after a 4 night stay they seemed life long friends. Food excellent. Rooms generous size with AC. Beautiful beach.

A friend and I went to bonefish and came back feeling like we left family. Ms. Cheryl, Chef Pam, Ms. Melinda, Miss Kristian, Noel and Ms. Enid took care of us like family. Pam and Kristian went out of their way to accommodate any request, from fruit for lunch to replacing broken rods. Resort is clean, comfortable and tranquil with beautiful sunrises over pristine ocean flats. Rooms and baths were cleaned and changed daily and done better than five star hotels. Our guide, Elvis, was fantastic. Cant wait to get back! Thank you for a wonderful trip.

We have been going to Swain’s several times per year for the past few years. Yes, the rooms are comfortable…a perfect mix of Bahamian style with modern amenities. Yes, the grounds are beautiful with a gorgeous wading flat right in front of the resort. Yes, INCREDIBLE cuisine made lovingly by Chef Pam. Yes, a wonderful network of expert bonefish guides. However, the real reason why Swain’s has become our “go to” home away from home is because of the incredible staff. Ms. Cheryl, Chef Pam, Ms. Melinda, Miss Kristian, Noel and Ms. Enid take care of us like family. They are exemplary models of the love and warmth that is the Bahamas. You’ll leave rested, several pounds heavier, camera roll full of bonefish, and an aching desire to quickly plan your return.

We just got back from Swains Cay in Andros last night. There were three of us who were there for bone fishing on flies and we could not have been happier. We got an independent guide who recommended Swains and he was spot on. They are the friendliest people, answering all my questions in getting it set up, booking our flight from Nassau on Flamingo Air and finding us a promotion that got one of us to fly free. They set up a cab to pick us up and were ready with a home cooked dinner for that night. Kristian who runs the office was just super. Very friendly and helpful. She got us squared away in no time and was always available if we needed her. Pam is the resort chef and she made us delicious meals that were different every day. We had lobster, conch, pasta, chicken and fish. All delicious. She also was there to make sure we got enough to eat (never a problem) and was just a truly warm and enthusiastic person. I was very interested in how the conch is made and she took me in the kitchen to show me the entire process. I’ll never make it myself but her generosity of time and information was extraordinary. The resort made us a continental breakfast each morning before fishing and got us down to the dock for the day. They packed us a great lunch every day that we ate in the boat and we had literally tons of cold bottles of water, which are super important since it’s so hot. We got back from fishing and had cold beers and Pam’s changing hors-d’oeuveres on the beach under the palm trees. Then came dinner and even key lime pie! The other staff at the hotel are all helpful and keep the place very clean. The room we had was large and had excellent air conditioning. We borrowed bikes one day to ride around and there are kayaks right on the front beach. The fishing nearby was great. We booked directly with Alvin Greene and we got fish every day despite being bothered by the edge of hurricane Elsa. We will be back to Swains for sure!!

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at Swains cay lodge about a week ago and will definitely return. We normally visit a different Bahamian Island every year to experience the real Bahamian way of life. By far it was the best. Hospitality was at its best, Our room was so clean, comfortable and accommodating. The food was so delicious and fresh. WE really enjoyed walking the beach and bicycles.. The resort itself was so clean and quiet. Ms. Bastian and her staff were awesome. we even had fresh coconut water from right off the beach ..Awesome Awesome.
