Peace and Plenty - which hotel to stay at?

hello,

we're coming in February to look at a lot we've owned and wonder which hotel we should stay at Peace and Plenty - the one in Georgetown or the Beach Inn Peace and Plenty. thanks!

We stayed at Beach Inn, but kept going back to PP. PP is the main "hub" of Georgetown, and while not on the beach, has the water taxi to Stocking Island. The beach at Beach Inn was not that nice, but we were comfortable their. The people taht work there are super at both. The food is a little better at PP. Rent a car, and don't miss Tropic of Cancer Beach. Call Starfish to take a boat to the different Cays, each beach is prettier tahn ths last. Either PP or Beach Inn can make arrangements for you.

ok, thanks for your recommendation for the hotel in town. Also, is it possible to get a boat from Exuma to go to Nassau for 2 days, as an out-trip? And/or are there other day trips besides Stocking Island? thanks

thanks

Hi

We stayed at the Beach Inn in September and also went, via their free into-town courtesy bus down to visit the other P&P in town. We were VERY glad that we were staying out of town. The Beach Inn gave us a free trip out to Stocking Island where they have an excellent beach facility and super walks - so no problem there, either. We understand that the trips out to the island from the centre of town get crowded in the main season.

Town, to us, was scruffy even by Caribbean standards - and we are in the travel industry - so we have experience of travelling right around the world.

The picture of P&P in town also has a certain amount of poetic licence, as it appears to be taken of the civic building right next to it.

Food, staff and service were excellent which we understand is common to both establishments.

Our choice would definitely be the out-of-town one. It also has the option of the small resorts next to it (for dining, beach facilities etc.,) - also for the superb beach that you can walk to in 10 mins if you head around the bay and skip over the private road!! It was deserted whilst we were there and is not really easily accessible from the road - which is why it probably remains relatively unnoticed.

You wouldn't want to even think about going to Nassau by boat for a few days. The flights are reasonable in price and frequent via Bahamas Air. You do occasionally get re-routed via other islands and they tend to go off-schedule at whim - but an extra hour here and there shouldn't be a problem!!

Hope that this helps.

It's hard to island hop in the Out Islands.

You can email Captain Lewless (They know him at both Peace and Plentys) and he does an all day trip thru some southern cays and ends in Long Island. (Prettiest beach anywhere) But, email him now, he books up pretty fast (some do it a year in advance!) excellent day trip. Tons of little cays to hop around, all with beaches "that belong to you"

Bahamas air has flights to Nassau, but not very reliable. Most flights are out of Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area, so if you want to island hop. you have to do alot of back tracking.
