Had a very nice dinner here, very friendly staff, but not longer rents rooms out except to long term renters. Located within walking distance to Bimini Sands, Mackey's Sand Bar and water taxi to north Bimini.

Paradise for Friendly People Tires screeching, the airplane turned around. A smooth ride back down the runway we just landed on provided a view of South Bimini’s desolate mangroves on the south side of the airport. Silver Air delivered a handful of passengers to an area with an array of grounded airplanes and a small building. With the plane’s engines... More

The hotel is on a canal which leads to the ocean, not on the ocean as the webiste appears. HUGE disappointment whe I arrived. Run down and not close to anything except dirt roads that can take you to lower Bimini resorts or the main Island. In the week I stayed, no one cleaned or changed the sheets in my... More

If you are just looking for a place to sleep at night, then this is a good choice, but be prepared with enough cash in hand (hotel does not accept credit card at all, including for food and drinks). The rates I was quoted at were $80 for a single bed, $100 for a room with two beds, or $130... More

Excellent price for the room: basic, but clean and quiet. There was no refrigerator, so I would ask for one or pay extra for a room with a kitchenette next time. Bring lots of bug spray because sand flies come out before sunset.

The Thirsty Turtle Yacht Club is conveniently located in South Bimini not far from the airport. Although, I didn’t stay at the hotel, I had the pleasure of eating several meals at the restaurant/bar. The Thirsty Turtle has a dive shop affiliated with PADI on property. Chris and Ali who ran the shop were very nice and I spent 3... More

We just returned from staying one night at the Thirsty Turtle Yacht Club. The hotel is located just inside the first canal (on right side) as you enter Bimini's harbor. The room was very simple & large for us; had two queen beds. It had a kitchenette and a very clean bathroom. The hotel was recently bought and is being... More

Went to bimini in Mar. 2009. We had the time of our life. The Turtle is a blast, always a great place to meet new friends! Brent and Joni are great, the resort is clean, food is awesome and location is perfect! Would live there if we could!

I just got back from a stay at the Thirsty turtle. The hotel now has new owners and they have renovated the place and added rooms with kitchenettes. The hotel was renovated very nicely and the rooms are clean, very large and very comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and the food is great. There is boat dockage available with... More
