“Peaceful, friendly piece of family islands”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

My wife, son, and I spent about a week at the hotel last fall. From arranging a car for us, to cooking delicious Bahamian meals, Sheila and everyone else on the staff couldn't be nicer. Rooms are standard motel-style rooms (quite clean), there's a small well-maintained pool, and a gorgeous view over the creek. We would definitely go again!

This is indeed one of the best places to stay on Andros, at very affordable prices: very clean and attractive rooms with fridge and private bathroom, walkout to pool and water views from your bed/window (Creek side rooms only)! There is a beautiful sandy beach that goes on for miles nearby - just walk across the bridge and past Forfar Field Station, a ten minute walk. A few bikes were available. Fishing from the bridge or off the patio is great, and you can have your catch cooked for you in the restaurant kitchen, or BBQ it yourself. At night you can watch sharks come into the creek (one more reason I liked the swimming pool). Never saw a shark during the day, or at the beach, though. This is not a place for swimming off the dock or patio, but you don't have to go far for excellent swimming and snorkeling.

For shopping, sightseeing and exploring the island you definitely a car.

This place is perfect if you travel with a crowd or are planning a reunion or big family vacation. Lots of room there for everybody. And Sheila, the owner, will cook wonderful Bahamian food for you.

If you prefer to do your own cooking most or some of the time, there is also a spacious 3 bedroom/2 baths villa for rent, on the grounds, with a large kitchen, dining and living room, plus laundry facility and veranda (see pictures)

Be aware that if you need large screen TVs and cable/satellite to be happy, this place is not for you. It's simple, relaxed and relaxing. Wireless did not work everywhere and was at times unavailable (not unusual on the island)

But we loved it.

This is a darling small motel/conference center tucked away beside a lovely creek (not near any beach), which has clean rooms of various sizes, large dining/banquet hall, meeting rooms, etc. It could serve a couple, family, or large group. Beautiful grounds & pool too! Even celebs could find seclusion here! Sheila, the owner/hostess/cook/& everything else, is amazing. Read the review from ArmyBratAngela-right on!

My husband and I and our two kids spent four nights at the Love at First Sight Hotel. We chose it because of the pool and the air-conditioning (my son has asthma).

I absolutely adored this place - it's not on the beach, but on a creek that feeds into the ocean. There were always breezes and I don't ever remember being truly hot, even in July. It's a one-woman operation and she truly takes pride in her hotel and the surroundings.

Rooms: very simple, but very clean. We had two-full beds in each room (we rented two rooms). The air-conditioning worked fine. My husband said he had a problem getting the light to go out in their room so he unscrewed the bulb. There were also fridges in the rooms which did work. I was very comfortable and content to read in my room during the sunburn/antibiotic incarceration. Hummingbirds around the flowers outside were gorgeous.

Sheila has a restaurant / bar on the property and we can't say enough good things about her cooking. My son especially liked the conch fritters and the fried fish. Off the restaurant is a deck that looks onto the creek. Depending on the tide you can see all the little fish that come for treats off the deck. My two kids had a blast tossing leftovers to them. You'll probably see more fish looking over the deck than snorkeling.

Disadvantages: You really need a car to get around or you'll have to depend on taxis like we did. Sheila was nice enough to drive us to another spot for snorkeling and she was very helpful with whatever we needed.

Pros: Seriously...each room was $110. After throwing away tons of money in Atlantis, I loved the price. The pool was the most wonderful thing! It felt sooooo cool after a day of putzing around Andros. The owner was most helpful with anything that we needed. She hooked my kids up with some fishing line so they could it a whirl. The location on the creek had beautiful views and it was just so peaceful there. Also - you simply MUST go to Captain Bill's Blue Hole. We had the whole place to ourselves and I'll try to get some pics up...needed to get a taxi to take us. Please e-mail if you have questions, I'm sure I'm leaving a lot out of this review.
