Spent lunch / dinner visits to assorted restaurants looking for the best one for an anniversary dinner. The website etc sounded awesome for this but it was a disappointment. Mediocre meal, aVerage service and just… nothing extraordinary to make us come back. Not worth the long drive out Banks Rd and up their bumpy entrance lane. Yes, the ocean is pretty there…. But there are so many other picturesque spots.

Hotel's Favorite
It was exactly what I needed!!!! I came to LaBougainvillea solo for a friends wedding but combined it with a vacation. I met other wedding attendees who were staying there, but otherwise, after a long 14 months of hardcore essential work through the entire pandemic, I spent 5 days on this beautiful island to decompress and without fail this resort fulfilled my request. The villa has only a handful of room accommodations so no crowds. I recommend to come here for a couples getaway, honeymoon, with friends, family or solo. The GM is Julian and his customer service could not be matched, he even drove us to take a mandatory covid test to fly back to the US. The food was delicious so it’s a great place to dine, and literally you have the turquoise beach to yourself. There’s so much to see like the glass window bridge which is a natural wonder of the world, go boating, spa treatments, visit other resteraunts off property, governors harbour, and go shopping. There’s no tv (or room service after hours) I recommend getting any snacks and bottled waters in town as soon as you arrive to stock up for those late night munchies because it’s lights out after 12 midnight. Otherwise, the villas were spacious and comfy. The staff did a great job. Bring a lot of cash for taxi service or rent a car. It’s not the U.S. so don’t come expecting fast service, technology and uber. It’s a breathtaking desolate island. Highly recommended!!!

La Bougainvillea is an actual oasis nestled on the beach of the Atlantic side of Eleuthera. The rooms are incredible and clean. The on-site restuarant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a full service bar and awesome views of the ocean. The food is so good, you really don't want to eat anywhere else. The pool and grounds are well maintained. Their on-site massuise will give you the best massage of your life right on the beach so you can hear the rolling surf to sooth not only body, but mind as well. The staff were so kind and friendly that we have friends for life from our visit.

Not sure where to start. This place is a cesspool. Awful food. People say the pizza is great. My 11 year old can make better pizza. Worst of all the bugs are scary. I needed a full bottle of lotion to recover from this swarm of flesh eating no see ums. Hell on earth

My favorite part of the stay was the food. This is unusual because the Bahamas is not known for food. Devin, the chef at La Bouganvillea, is a humble soft spoken man who cooks up wonders in his seaside kitchen. The lobster tacos were amazing. Oh, and don't miss trying the best burger in the Bahamas. The environment Tom created is an eclectic mix of Bahamian and Asian designs. This tasteful combination made me feel relaxed and embraced. I enjoyed immensely sitting out back listening to the ocean, feeling the gentle breeze all while being taken care of by a great staff.

Thiis is a boutique hotel and restaurant. Beautiful setting and very attentive waiters. May have been the best buffet meal we've had in the Bahamas. Stuffed chicken was average but everything else excelled -- Garlic butter shrimp, conch chowder, Jack Daniels ribs, jerk corn on the cob, seafood rice, red velvet cheesecake and waffle station. Brunch and one drink cost $76 per person.

We spent several long lingering lunches there and loved every minute. The food is terrific especially the dynamite shrimp and the sushi. We were sad to miss the wood fired pizza oven and music on Thursday night but would wholeheartedly recommend this spot. We took our while family of 6 adults and 6 children there and everyone there could not have been nicer. The place is really well run and every staff member we met including Kia, Sean, and Lucius were very gracious. In addition, they have the best massage therapist we have had in a long time. All six adults had massages in a beautiful Bali style massage space on the beach and everyone said they were the best massages!!

Every winter, I feel the need to escape the cold and snow in the northeast. We haven’t traveled internationally since right before the pandemic took hold of the world so I decided our first foray into international travel since Covid began should be to the warm and sunny Bahamas. Because of Covid concerns and just a general need for a break from the world, I decided against Atlantis or any other mega resort and wanted to visit somewhere a little more off the beaten path. Eletheura was the perfect spot. We picked La Bougainvillea due to its great reviews and beautiful location. We were not disappointed. Situated atop a private beach, this place was the perfect respite from the last long 2 years and provided exactly the peace and quiet we were looking for. Not only was it just as beautiful as the pictures showed, but the staff was so helpful and friendly. The food at the restaurant was delicious, the pool and beach were spectacular and it felt like we were the only ones there. My poor husband fell victim to the dreaded noseeums and the owner gave him an aloe plant as relief. He then checked up on us several times during the rest of the visit to see how he was feeling. It was so wonderful to have such a personal experience with an owner who truly cared about his guests enjoying themselves. Also, special recognition to Tenille, who went far above and beyond to ensure our experience was great. If you’re considering Eletheura, I 100% recommend this resort. Some pro tips: -rent a vehicle, a 4WD one if you can. It was tricky getting in and out of the resort and around the island in general -the food is expensive. This is not unique to this resort, food all over the island is expensive. Be prepared for that -the weather wasn’t particularly cooperative for us. The resort doesn’t offer much in the way of rainy day activity, so bring devices/books/games to keep yourselves entertained should that happen. I would’ve loved a fitness center for that reason too Overall, a great experience, lovely people and we hope to return again soon!

I really didn’t know how to grade this place since everything appeared perfectly beautiful and the restaurant and bar service really friendly. We came to check it out for a wedding and Unfortunately, we found the pool has been invaded by black mold. At first I thought it was the concrete sides spalling. I didn’t see it till I was all the way in the pool but I could tell the color was murky. Then I was stepping on remnants of white chorine/shock tablets. I thought maybe because it was a cloudy day the water wasn’t clear but you could see the mold thickly growing on the steps and sides of the pool. My daughter cupped her hands and pulled up a puddle of water and you could see the flecks of dark particles. We immediately got out and quickly washed off. It’s a shame This place is beautiful but they need to get the pool cleaned up.

a true dream location, pink secluded beach, clear turquoise waters, refreshing to relax in. Quiet resort. Julian (Mgr) is warm, welcoming and very accommodating. Staff and long-time guests are eager to share local stories/recommendations. Menu items are a bit pricey but delish! Saw 10am and 5pm sharks. Great central location. Minutes drive to town, gas, liquor/grocery stores, restaurants, atm... thank you all for an unforgettable vacation. Especially the staff: Terrence, Valentino, Ziggy, Mo & Aisha, Kiki. Only negatives: no generator during power outages after storms, team work lacks a bit of energy, otherwise I'd rate it 'Excellent'. Can't wait to return to this hidden beauty...
