“Unassuming, but Great Service and Fantastic Deserted Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2011

This little hotel is in High Rock about 30 - 40 minutes east of the Lucaya area of Freeport. It's an older property and small - only 9 air-conditioned rooms - that face out onto one of the nicest beaches on Grand Bahama. The rooms are large and clean with small bathrooms; beds are comfortable. You can ask for the "suite" that also has a small kitchen. This is not a "resort" in US parlance, but a hide-away where one goes for solitude and sun.

There's a cute cabana on the beach, where you can get beer or rum drinks (or whatever!) to your heart's content, $20 lobster dinners (ask for broiled not 'cracked'), fish, burgers, conch fritters, etc. Service is quick, attitude is laid back. You can enjoy the cabana without having to stay at the hotel itself.

The primary attraction of this location is the nearly always deserted 5 miles of white sand beach to the west. There is no nightlife - restaurant closes at 6:00 during the week, 7:00 on Friday & Saturday, although they will stay open if they have customers.

This is a nice diversion from the faux-Bahamian atmosphere at Lucaya. Certainly worth a day trip to get away from the city. Doris and Troy are great hosts and will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. (PS: Good WIFI!)

Get a map and drive east on the main road. When you see the restaurant on the right lined with conch shells on the railing, go about 3 more miles. Just over a small hill will be a right turn at the big "Bishop's" sign. Turn there, go to the end of the paved road (about 1/2 mile) and turn right again. Cabana will be on your left and hotel will be on your right past the cemetary.

My "4" rating is based upon my perception of value, location, and expectations considering the location and size of the property.

Please also see my review of Bishop's Bonefish Resort which is at the same location.
