Good hotel overall. Maintenance slightly better than some other island hotels I've stayed in, but not perfect. Some attention to repairing and updating the vanity faucet and the shower hardware would go a long way. The main reason I gave 4 out of 5 was due to the poor Wi-Fi

Why do you go back to a place again and again? Because you love it.....! We fish in the marls several times a year and would dream of going anywhere else. Nice people, nice rooms, great beds and linens. We are fussy and this is the place to go.

We stayed at the Resort for 2-nights pre-sailing adventure. Everyone we talked to that worked at the resort was very nice and helpful. The location was very good, we lazed at the beach quite a bit and enjoyed walks in the marina and area. We really enjoyed using the paddle

Dear HockeyMom_in_MI, We are happy to read that you enjoyed the location and took advantage of the paddle boards. We have passed your comments on speed of service in the restaurant to our F&B Manager, and the towel issue to our Housekeeping Manager. Please accept our apologies. With feedback such as yours we will be able to improve in these areas. With regards to evenings, the main restaurant closes at 10pm and the pool bar stays open until late - although the earliest it closes at 11pm. Being a small island (only 17,000 people on the island and just 5000 in our surrounding area!) places do tend to close down earlier in the night, especially on a Sunday. Housekeeping do put 2 small bottles of water in every room, and there is an ice machine available in between the two buildings. We hope you enjoyed sailing around the stunning Abaco's, and thank you for your review. Kind regards, Chris & Sarah General Managers

I wouldn’t be as harsh as other negative reviews though there is truth to some. I was lucky enough to have been given a refurbished room (153) which was very nice. My colleagues were in the other building in older style rooms and they concurred with some elements of related

Hello SueW914, Thank you for taking the time to write and post a review of your recent stay here at Abaco Beach Resort. Feedback is very important to us, as is constructive criticism which can really identify areas where we need to improve, such as some of the areas you have mentioned. On reading you review I checked our system and noted which rooms your colleagues were in a personally inspected them. I did find a few issues which I have to admit I was ... disappointed with. I bought these up to our new Housekeeping Manager who has done some training with his team and is spot checking arrival rooms. Since your stay we have refurbished many more of our rooms - and are actually at 100% occupancy as I type. I am in the process of re-implementing a towel voucher process to alleviate the issue with a lack of beach / pool towels at times. I have bought the gym to the attention of the team and we are working on ensuring that is up to the standard it should be. New weights have been ordered and I've been in touch with the treadmill company. (Apparently the issue you had is a circuit board problem meaning the machine needs to be unplugged and re-plugged to reset it). You are correct, our beach activities hut is only staffed part-time during low season. Thank you for your kind comments on our employees and the New Years Eve celebrations. if you decide to visit Abaco again we hope you will stop in to see the continued improvements. Kind regards, Chris & Sarah General Managers

Please don’t stay here. This is one of the biggest rip offs in the Bahamas. As a person who lives here most of the year this upsets me as it does not portray the real Bahamas to a visitor. This resort is beyond dated with popcorn ceilings and moldy ac units. The furniture is

Dear Carol, We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I took a walk down towards your room after your 1 night stay and did see the lawnmower that was being worked on in a covered area. It should not have been worked on there, and it seems they did not finish before they left and should have put it away, although this did not happen. It was also unfortunate that a contract worker had left a bathtub outside the room next to yours. Again, this should not have happened and we have put steps in place to ensure things like this do not happen again. The construction you refer to was actually new bath tubs going into certain rooms, as well as painting. The tubs were to size and did not involve any hammering etc. so there should have been no noise. I checked your room, which was one with a new bath tub and new paint but did not see a moldy AC unit. We have some new members of our Management team who are doing an excellent job and their teams have done great work on room improvements. Thank you for your feedback Carol. We hope you had a safe onward journey home and a pleasant Christmas. Kind regards, Chris & Sarah General Managers

Nassau airport is on a different island (New Providence), about 100 miles away. There are daily flights from Nassau to Marsh Harbour, the nearest airport.

"All the hotel rooms have a view of the ocean but the villas don't. You get a better view on the second and third floors of the hotel."
"Pick a loft/villa"
"Marina view was stunning!"
"There are no bad rooms. Each has a balcony and a view of the water."
"Try another hotel."
