A privately owned 3 mile island with a sparse smattering of private residences. The owner runs a marina, small gift and market store, restaurant, bar and pool area, golf cart rental and rental units. If you like being away from all the crowds and are a boater, you will find a Gilligan's island destiny at Spanish Cay. The rock jetty... More

My husband and I docked here for dinner and drinks and we weren't disappointed. The view is incredible! Service was wonderful and very accommodating. We met the owner of the island who was also working behind the bar. Great guy! We drank their famous house punch and it was amazing! Will definitely return!

Imagine an 81 slip marina with one boat. An island resort with a total of 8 guests. The hospitality of the staff, Lisa and Tornado, helped a lot in compensating for the otherwise abandoned feeling of Spanish Cay.

Very expensive compared to other marinas in the Bahamas, $2.95 a foot $0.45 a gallon for water, food was so so. Pool had algae in it. Marina needs lots of work, our fault for not checking prices, we won't go back

We are fortunate enough to have visited in the abaco's for almost a month. We stayed at Spanish in the beginning and end of June. Two nights and then one on the way back to states. Such a very quaint please with so much possibility. For starters I will say the food is off the charts great and so is... More

When we docked here we had high hopes. We saw manicured lawns and colourful buildings which from the dock looked very promising. However as we explored the island on foot we realised that despite the beauty of the island itself, the resort had probably had its day. Many of the buildings and docks were in a bad state of repair... More

We visited by boat. The place has lost its big buck class of years past, but Chris and Debby, the new managers are working hard to resurrect it. The place was empty but was clean and very private. I mentioned it was empty! We were the only ones in the restaurant, but the food was the best we had on... More

Great place to clear customs when entering the Abaco Island chain at Memory Rock. Nice beaches friendly staff. We stayed an extra day. We were on our own sailboat so we can't comment on the rooms but they looked good from the outside. Fresh grouper dinner was awesome.

Did an overnight at the Marina, drank in the bar, and ate in the restaurant. The staff is excellent and the proprietors are from Texas...which how could it be friendlier?
