We traveled to Bahamas for 1 week on a Budget. We stayed the 1st night at Comfort Suites in Paradise Island just because we wanted to experience Atlantis but did not have enough money for the whole week to stay there. Price at Comfort Suite for 4 of us was $360 a night price at el Greco at the Presidential Suite $140 although this room usually costs $180. I have many things to say the Prons and cons. I reserved with Youlanda and Diane 5 months ahead of time and it was the best customer service ever. They do everything they can to work things out with you concerning prices and any other issues you can have. They told me since I was booking so ahead of time they would give me a special rate of $140 per night for the Presidential Suite because that room normally costs between 180-200 a night. The Presidential Suite has the size of an 800sf apartment not kidding. It has to comfy queen beds with a seperate area for a dinning table and fridge and a seperate area for sitting. Then the biggest plus is the huge but huge Balcony you have facing the Junkanoo Beach. We traveled 11 in total all family members. Five of them stayed at the Junior Suite and let me tell you that room does not even get to the toes to the Presidential. Our room was so comfy that all the other family members would wake us up in the mornings to come and have breakfast with us and would not want to get out of our presidential suite ( so we had no intimacy at all) , no ones fault just that the room was so spacious like the size of an apartment that all 11 of us would be in there when we were not doing activities out. The truth I did not like at all the room they had and I think the real deal is the get any of the 3 rooms facing the ocean and if not you my night the Greco. I did not like that there was no hotwater during our stay and that is the con I put to the place. I loved the fact it was near to everything within walking distance and we never had to take a taxi unless going to Paradise Island. We went walking to the Fish Fry 3 times during the week ( it is a 10-15 minute walk). Went walking to the strawmarket (8-10 minute walk), downtown (8 minute walk). We chose this place because it was the only place that would allow us to stay 6 people in a room. All the other places I had quoted said I needed to reserve a 2nd bedroom. That is why I mentioned that Diane is willing to work everyhting out with you. When I 1st had booked I tolld Diane is was 5 ( both parents, 2 kids and Grandpa) but then Grandma jumped in the trip after I had reserved and I had no idea how I was going to be allowed for this extra person? Diane said it was a 4 person bedroom but 5 could be allowed. How could I then tell her it was no longer 5 persons but now it was 6? Well I decided to tell her and asked if there was an additional cost well guess what? Nope. I just asked for an extra rollabed for 10 per night and that was it. They really do not care if you are 5-6 or maybe 7 in a room as long as you can make your self fit. I did not hear any noise at night, in the daytime it is noisy but who cares you are not even in the room the whole day. It did not think it looked like a dangerous place like others have said my husband and dad went to the Fish fry walking at 9pm and came back at 11:30pm and nothing happened. Like others said no breakfast but there is coffee at the Lobby.
