Let me start by explaining my background. My wife and I are in our mid-20s and have been to a Sandals in Jamaica and Marriott in St. Kitts. That being said, I wanted to provide a review that is hopefully useful to most people, often times I found reviews in here that made it hard to actually get a good view of what the resort is. The resort IS a budget resort. You get what you pay for. So keep that in mind.
Rooms - just so you know, you reserve the room type and they try to accommodate your bed preference. We asked for a King bed and were given a room with two fulls for the first night since they were full. We had to wait until the next day to get the room we requested. Otherwise they were clean and very unremarkable. The furniture is outdated but not in bad condition. You also have a wall mounted flat screen tv. I read many complaints about cleanliness, we had no problem, and our rooms were cleaned every day.
Food - very hit and miss. This is definitely where they cut to make this a budget resort. The two restaurants are ok, but you must call from 9am-11am to get a reservation. I would call right at 9 and still couldn't get a reservation for one of the days. They close one restaurant on Sundays and the other on Mondays, which will limit your choices. I am sure you have read about the buffet. But at least 80% of the food will not even be warm. Breakfast and Lunch are ok, you just need to pick and choose (can toast your own bagels in the morning/pizza always warm at lunch). But I would seriously avoid dinner at the buffet if possible.... I am incredibly easy to please when it comes to food, but it was very hard to find things that were warm unless it was just brought out. They do have all of the food in chafing dishes, but I guess they don't keep the water hot. This was by far the worst part of the resort. I didn't expect much out of the food, but this was well below my low expectations.
Drinks - just ask for your liquor by name and you will be fine. They have plenty of name brands like Jack Daniels, Crown Royal, Captain Morgan, Bacardi etc. They do serve in small 8 ounce glasses but it really isn't a big deal. If you are a drinker just bring a big mug or buy one in the gift shop, I saw plenty of people who did that. I thought the beer (Kalik) was gross, it is the only beer option so I avoided it the whole week.
Beach - well groomed, plenty of beach chairs and tables. Just like with most Caribbean places there will be vendors, but they leave you alone once you say "no thank you". The water is absolutely gorgeous!
Pool - we did not go in for more than 10 minutes a few times because the weather was in the mid 70s and the pool was cold. The pools themselves were average and not heated. The hot tub was hit or miss. Sometimes it wasn't very clean and other times it would get too hot or be luke warm. I asked the staff about it and they said it self regulates, but there was one time there were about a dozen people sitting around the hot tub because it was too hot to even put more than your feet in.
Activities - a lot better than expected. The staff works hard to have a good time. There is usually some outdoor activity almost every hour. There are also plenty of water sports (we kayaked), a trapeze and a climbing wall. Inside there are 4 pool tables, some ping pong tables, basketball and plenty of other activities, you shouldn't get bored! At night they always have entertainment, their local band is very entertaining. The piano bar also was a lot of fun, I would highly recommend it. While we were there not many people used the club, but it would have been fun had there been more people dancing.
Downtown Nassau - pretty generic for a Caribbean city - you can negotiate for knock-off purses and other souvenirs - there are also plenty of jewelry stores. I would very much recommend the greek restaurant, it is some of the best greek food I have ever had! I know it sounds weird in the Bahamas, but they actually have a huge Greek population apparently, so the food is very authentic.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. We won't go back, but we had a good time while we were there except for the food.
