“Nicest people on the island, but it's low-cost for a reason”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2008

For $88 a night--with no additional fees or taxes--at a major tourist destination, what do you expect?

A fantastic deal--and the staff and live-in residents of the place were the nicest people we met on the island!

The showers are shared between two units each.

The window curtains are sewn to the curtain-rod so that they don't slide aside. I used clothespins to pin them up to get light into the otherwise dark room.

There were live insects and detritus in the sheets and pillows.

And the water pressure was so low (with almost zero hot water), it was very difficult to take a (cold) shower.

As far as I could tell, there were no other divers staying on the property. But they do have a locked dive locker on the premises, a pool you can use to try out your weighting, and the shared showers are big enough to carry all your gear in. The in-room "slop" sinks are also great for rinsing out your wetsuit. But with very little ventilation in the room, your gear will take days to dry unless you take it outside.

And again, everyone on the property was so dang friendly and helpful--very different than what we experienced at A Stone's Throw Away and Sheraton Cable Beach. Needless to say, we had quite a unique trip to the Bahamas, where in a handful of days, we got to stay at three totally different properties: an off-the-tourist-track B&B; a 4-star tourist resort; and Land Shark, which we dubbed "The Plywood Palace."

If you're looking to save a ton of money and you'd like to hang out at a laid-back outdoor (covered) bar while drinking and smoking with easy-going locals and ex-patriots, this might be your perfect spot.

  • Liked — Friendliest staff and residents on the island.
  • Disliked — Dirty sheets.

In response to what was said about Land Shark Divers Resort...... It is now under new management. It is a DIVING RESORT and not a five star resort/ hotel it was designed specifically for diving adventures and not romance. There is now entertainment available including televisions, and night events. I’m sorry that u felt that way about your stay but I would encourage other persons interested not to get discouraged and experience staying at Land Shark themselves and write a review of their stay.

My wife and I recently vacationed in the Bahamas. We had an unpleasant first two days there and have asked the "resort" for a refund , but they have not responded in any way to our request. We changed to Breezes after meeting some people on the bus to downtown and discovering that we were paying the same amount of money per night for a hotel that had much less to offer.

The morning we took this bus ride downtown, we had just had a very unpleasant night because the hotel management had a private party for some locals and they attempted to serve us our meal on a patio so we wouldn't be in the way. This meant the entire common area of the hotel was not really available to us for the night. Since the room has no television, radio, or even good lighting, we were left with either leaving or listening to the walls pound music and try to read or sleep. The next morning, the breakfast service was late with more paltry than usual offerings including a pitcher of spoiled milk. Up until this time, my usually cheerful and optimistic wife decided enough was enough. After viewing the Breezes and Radisson hotels (on the recommendation of other tourists we met on the bus), we opted to move to Breezes (even though is was $20 more per night) and had a wonderful time there.

The following list is what we didn't get at the Land Shark that the Radisson offers for the same daily rate:

Private shower
Adequate lighting in the rooms and baths
Unlimited drinks and/or choices of drinks.
Snacks, desserts, and choices at meals.
Fresh milk at breakfast.
Airport transfers (both us and the other
guest that arrived on the same day were unable to get our promised airport transportation and had to pay cabs to get us to the Land Shark- (they refused to reimburse us)

Bath rooms with counter space and mirrors suitable for women who might like to put on make up and dress up a bit.

A view of something not cinder block or treated wood.
Beach towels.
A beach or view of a beach.
Hot tub and pool under palm trees or w/ a view.

Entertainment opportunities other than Vin Diesel
movies on the big screen tv at the bar.

TV, phone, clock radio in room.

The hotel sales person, Mr. Lindsay Peterson commented that smaller hotels should offer Bahamian culture and feel- I have no problem w/ that, but the decor and ambiance of the Land Shark is duplicated at the edge of every small town in America- a cheap cinder block hotel next to the highway- this is NOT a resort in the commonly used form of the word. We discussed the Land Shark with many Bahamians and all of them agreed that the
conditions we encountered at the Land Shark were substandard CONSIDERING THE PRICE.

My wife and I have traveled to Europe, Africa, Mexico, and other parts of the Carribean. We have stayed in places that are somewhat primitive and enjoy that when they are offering what is expected or unique to the area. What's offered at the Land Shark is NEITHER a good deal and or unique- Proof of this
is a 1/2 mile walk to the east.
