“Wow what a great place”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

I have stayed here many times before. The Condo are great it is almost time shared so each one is decorated differently. Each condor has full kitchen front room. Very comfortable and like home. The food at hotel restaurant is very reasonable and taste delicious. The hotel is on a harbor. You can see all kinds of big fish just by walking. We fished there all night and had alot of fun. Very safe. Why even clothes doors. If you coming be prepared to relax. This is real island life.

Just a short hop from Florida are the small islands of Bimini. The Bimini Sands offers an ideal base for whatever type of island vacation you are looking for. Condos are clean and modern, with full kitchens. The marina offers dockage, ice and bait. 3 restaurants including Island Sushi provide a diverse range of bar food, fine dinning and island cuisine. They also offer vegetarian options. The activities department can arrange for shark dives, swimming with wild dolphins, kayaking, island tours or fishing. The beaches are gorgeous and perfect for swimming or enjoying a cocktail. Mackey's Sandbar has great drink specials and a great karaoke night. Each condo is different and both beach or marina views are available. They are privately owned, so decor and amenities vary.

We recommend a shark snorkel, island tour, the crunchy roll, conch salad, seafood pizza, grilled mahi, Goombay smash, and the grilled local pineapple.

Room Tip: Beach view is the way to go!

My husband and I decided that a destination wedding was for us. We had been to Bimini a couple of times and thought that it felt right. We had looked at another resort in Bimini to have our family and friends and all the activities, but it just didn't work out. (I thought their packages were too restrictive for the type of wedding vacation we were trying to have.) When we looked into our other options, the first thing the people at Bimini Sands said was "well what do YOU want?". They literally offered whatever my heart desired when it came to the wedding and meal details. They created a menu for me out of thin air, no restrictions or guest minimums. Not only did they make the planning as easy as could be but once we got there was absolutely full service, Trips, meals, tours, everything was at our fingertips, whatever the guests wanted to do, the staff made happen. Of course weddings aren't without a few hiccups, although none at the hands of Bimini sands, but my cake baker had to go on bed rest a few days before we were about to arrive on the island. The chef for our rehersal and reception dinners went to work figuring out how to bake a cake and decorate it beautifully in time for the big day. I have never been so appreciative of his and everyones efforts to make everything as smooth as possible, The dinner, by the way, was one of the best meals we have ever had! I would highly and without reservations, recommend Bimini Sands to anyone who wants a low key but beautiful and fun wedding or vacation! I can't thanks the staff and owners enough for the wonderful memories!

This was our first stay at Bimini Sands Resort and Marina. We are boaters and have visited Bimini many times over the years. We rented a one bedroom unit and our friends stayed on their boat. The unit was spacious and equipped with all the kitchen conveniences. Since the units are privately owned, you need to bring your own tioletries, beach towels, etc. since they are not supplied by the resort. The marina is well designed and a haven for fishermen. Some of the units back to the beautiful white sand beach. Very private beach area. The pool is very small but most people are out on their boats all day. There is a nice restaurant on the island, but you need to take the island bus to reach it.
Bring your food and beach supplies, since there is nowhere to buy anything on south Bimini. You can take a water taxi to north Bimini for supplies or dining.
We will return, but will be prepared the next time we visit. Great place to relax, and enjoy fishing and water sports.

Room Tip: Owners of the units available for rent, set the rates. No tax and no negotiating.

We flew to south Bimini for Memorial Day weekend. No issues what so ever with customs or the transportation to the resort. We were greeted immediately by Frank Jr., the son of the owner who runs the day to day. The staff in the front office was very friendly and helpful. Our rental condo came with a golf cart which was not working, but we were very fortunate that the owner of the condo lived next door, so she was very kind and let us use her golf cart to get around whenever needed and it was perfect. To be on a quiet tropical island with no noisy cars or traffic!!! Our condo was a 2 bedroom, 3 bath, right on the beach. Beautiful decor inside. The kitchen and living room were upstairs which was perfect for watching the sunset from the balcony. We went on a lovely island tour with Grant and katie. they are fabulous! 2 knowledgeable and Eco-friendly professional marine biologists who have lived in Bimini for years, so they know they're way around! It was terrific. We also did a snorkeling trip with them to see the road to Atlantis. The water is beautifully crystal clear. We saw rays, turtles, lots of reef fish, and the nicest living reefs. Dining at bimini sands is 4 star all the way and the night club is awesome. It doesn't matter what u order, it will be phenomenal from the apps to the sushi bar to the main courses and deserts. You will be very pleaseed. We stayed for 4 nights and wish it could have been Longer! We will absolutely return to Bimini Sands as soon as possible! What an amazing get away from the hustle and bustle of south Florida! It's a 16 min flight from fort lauderdale. Go for it! No questions asked.

This is the second year we stayed there. The best on Bimini, but the most expensive also. The condos come with a fully stocked kitchen and a washer/dryer. Bring your own provisions! The condo we had slept 4 big guys comfortably, 3 story’s king bed in loft, king in both bedrooms and pullout couch, 3 bathrooms and the 2-central A/C’s cranked, great after a full day fishing in the sun. Marina has the best floating docks and is fully protected from the wind and waves. Ship store with some provisions, gas and ice. Free Wi-Fi when it worked. We paid $360 a night plus dockage. The fun we had was priceless!

We just returned from a four-day stay at Bimini Sands Resort & Marina on Bimini in the Bahamas. Our kids (girls 16 and 11) were absolutely thrilled by the water-sports activities that we did in the incredibly clear Bimini Blue water. We snorkeled through the wreck of the Sapona (a concrete ship) and also at several other locations along Bimini's live coral reef. Bimini Sands' Activities Staff members Katie and Grant were our guides on these adventures--and also took us on a memorable shark-feeding trip during which we saw five Caribbean reef sharks and a black-nose shark. My husband and I were impressed by the level of service, the beautiful view from our ocean-front villa (a one-bedroom that can sleep up to six people), and the excellent food at the resort's restaurant--which has the best sushi bar in the Bahamas! The marina was full but the boats left each day to go fishing, giving us the feeling we had our own private resort--then at night, we enjoyed swapping stories at Mackey's, which is Bimini Sands' lively bar. We can't wait to go back.
