I can forgive the renovation construction. That is just part of the cycle of hotel operation. I can also appreciate that this is a budget all-inclusive resort, not at all geared towards someone in Nassau for business as I was. What I cannot understand is why anyone would choose this hotel or how any positive reviews exist.
When I checked into my room it had not been cleaned. I called downstairs and the receptionist told me someone would come up with a key for different room. Twenty minutes later I went back downstairs with my luggage and then waited another twenty minutes while the staff decided where to put me.
The resort is all-inclusive, which basically means you can have as much food and drink as you want as long as you don't want anything good. Perhaps a good drink would have helped me sleep on the cheap bed, through the "entertainment" blasting outside my window each night. Perhaps for those after quantity and not quality, this is the perfect property. I read somewhere about the property that they stocked local and premium spirits. There was not a single brand of liquor I recognized from the States, or anywhere else I have traveled.
Everything about this property is dated, and not in a quaint rustic Bahamian sort of way. It is all just generic and reeking of mildew. Judging by recent updates and the ongoing renovations, tangible improvements are not on the horizon. (They are replacing an ivory tile from the 80's with glossy faux marble, circa the 1990s.)
The food in the buffet restaurant reminded me of my university's dining hall. There are lots of choices of overcooked entrees, mushy pastas, soggy vegetables, and a most uninspired salad selection. For some reason smoked salmon is plentiful at breakfast and dinner. The only highlight was the jerked chicken. In four nights I tried four different preparations of fish, which were just different seasonings piled on top of the same fish, which may or may not have been Mahi.
Each morning I ordered coffee and the server offered cream, but brought milk. The difference between cream and milk is lost on this hotel. So too are varieties of wine. At dinner they offered red or white. I asked what kind of red wine there was, and whether there might be a malbec. The response was, "red or white?" That interaction generally describes the service. There is a huge staff here, and all are either cordial or disinterested, but never enthusiastic.
As far as business travel needs go, wifi is spotty and the gym is outdated. There are no dining or entertainment options in close proximity to the property. There rooms have poor sound isolation, so pool area and hallway noises are pervasive.
