“Average hotel but good value for Bahamas”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

When on the islands, expect to pay 5 star prices for 3 star accomodation. This Best Western is no exception.
You get a kitchen and sitting room and the area is pretty nice (although restaurant and supermarket (really just a small shop) is ridiculously expensive and not fresh. The prices in the neighbourhood are very high overall.
The beach a few blocks away is really great. Among the clearest, most turqoise water we have ever seen, and that's saying a lot.
The standard of the rooms is pretty good and hotel area is nice. Only drawback is the restaurant at the hotel, which is not really a restaurant at all. Its just a small shop with tables outside. If you want to order something, the sleeping woman outside unwillingly takes your order, gets the groceries needed from the shop and later cooks it in the back kitchen.
The second day, the power went out and was out all day. Everyone at the hotel was pissed, but the staff weren't in any hurry fixing it anyway.
Overall, Bahamas is a place where you only go if you are spending big bucks. If you don't wanna cash up bigtime but still get a fairly good accomodation, the Best Western is a good option.

We have stayed at this property three times. We have stayed as a couple and with our children - teenagers. We have stayed in Atlantis and found that to be nice in its own way, but would absolutely prefer the Best Western. The grounds, the pools, and the tennis court are wonderful. After a hectic day it is a pleasure to return to the peace and calm of the Bay View Suites, where everyone has a kind word and a smile. Where you can sit outside in the evening and not be disturbed by nothing but the sound of nature. It is within easy walking distance of everything and we love it ...cannot wait to return. It really is the only place we would stay.

We took our granddaughter and her best friend here for a fraction of the price of Atlantis, yet we had all the amenities of Atlantis, which was right out the door and only a minute walk to the casino and their whole resort. Wrist bands for all the amenities to Atlantis were included.
The Best Western was clean, fresh smelling, and had a very friendly staff. You could tell it was an older hotel but very well maintained. This was my 3rd time to Nassau (my wifes 2nd) and could not of chosen a better place for the money. We walked every where because the hotel was so centered to almost everything on Paradise Island. Their breakfast buffet lacked a little to be desired, but we seldom woke up early enough to eat there. Their conch fritters were all right from the restaurant, but the best conch of all was at the foot of the original bridge in the shacks where the fresh catch of the day are unloaded. The island people were very friendly and helpful.
Would I stay there again? YES, it a fabulous trip and experience! Highly Recommend it!

We traveled to the Bahamas for our 1st anniversary. The Bay View Suites is located on Paradise Island and is perfect walking distance to Atlantis and the bridge for a walk to New Providence Island. The accommodations were clean, spacious and comfortable. There are 3 beautiful pools on the property as well as lovely gardens. Thoughtful bouquets of flowers are left in the suite each day it is cleaned. While the washroom in our suite was a little small and the shower/tub left some height to be desired, we really enjoyed our stay here and felt that it was good value considering its location and cleanliness!

My husband and 2 children stayed at Best Western Plus Bay View Suites a few weeks ago and had a wonderful time. The staff, including management, were extremely helpful and friendly. Our accomomodation in a one-bedroom suite was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed such as a full kitchen, free internet and a very comfortable king size bed and a pull out couch in the living room for our young children.
Everything was immaculate and the grounds were beautiful landscaped. There are 3 swimming pools, a tennis court and the mini mart on property was very convenient., The Hotel is located about a block from the Atlantis Resort & Casino. In visting the Atlantis, although it was interesting to see it, we were so happy in staying in a smaller more intimate Hotel.
We would recommend this Hotel to all of our friends and we definetely will be back.

We were on our very last Spring Break Trip with our youngest child, a young man of 18. I wanted this to be a great trip because it was just the three of us. I didn't want our son to be bored with us, so we decided to go to Atlantis for a day before we flew on to Eleuthera. I try to be very frugal with our vacations, and the Best Western is a great find!
I was very impressed with this peaceful and serene hotel. We stayed in a king room with a pull out couch. It was really a small apartment with a separate living room, a large kitchen and a separate room with the bed. They provided beach towels, too. It was very clean, spacious and even had a small back porch. The grounds were well kept and lovely. The staff was very friendly. There is no breakfast included, but you can buy a full breakfast for less than $10.00 and it was delicious. They had a complimentary computer that we could use in their lobby. They have two smaller pools and a tennis court. The location was about 1/4 mile from Atlantis on a very safe and secure street. They have a security guard in the front lobby.
If you're not coming to Nassau to go to Atlantis for more than one day, I would totally recommend staying at the Best Western. If you want to go to Atlantis for more than one day, I would stay at the Comfort Suites. The day pass to Atlantis was $120.00 each. It just about killed me to pay that much, but we were there for Atlantis and it is remarkable, fun and great for the family and teenagers. I totally recommend the Best Western Bay View Suites for its cleanliness and value.

I agree completely with the lengthy glowing review from Feb 2011. We were pleasantly surprised by a large spotless "apartment". This was our first trip to the Bahamas and found the islanders to be delightful and they take their tourism seriously. Everyone we came in to contact with wanted us to be happy and come back. I would return to this hotel in a minute. We did a snorkeling/sub excursion with Stuart Cove and were very pleased. Turned out we were the only customers for the morning sub adventure and had a boat and staff of 5 to ourselves. They made the trip a lot of fun.
