If you're looking for excitement and cheesy bands, proceed straight to Atlantis. If you are looking for a simple, super-clean place only 10 minutes from the airport to stay on your first or last night in the Bahamas, this is it. The 'check-in' is located inside the dining room past the honor bar (yes, the honor bar, stocked with the most delicious rum, cold beer, and mixers).
The room: nice little balcony facing a lot of palm trees and the sea (over the parking lot). Very clean and nice. The AC was on when we arrived, there is an efficiency kitchen + refrigerator, and nice sized bathroom. The Ritz it is not, but a nice little room in which to stay and get a nice night's rest it was.
The beach: down the drive and across the road. Not crowded at all and easily accessible.
The surroundings: there is not a lot around this inn. A small shopping area is a 10 minute walk to the east and has a Chinese restaurant and liquor store. A restaurant called Traveller's Rest that received great reviews was closed by early December due to the owner passing away. So, to eat your choices are Chinese or the Inn. The inn's menu is nice and local, but a wee pricey. Having more food choices or inexpensive options on the menu may have bumped this review to excellent.
The checking in and out was efficient and simple. Hard to argue with a process when you have a cold Bahamian beer in your hand.
In summary, I would stay here again and would recommend it to others with the simple caveat: it's not an all-inclusive resort. Other than that, open a cold Sands and sit while watching the palm trees sway in the breeze.
