“Just Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Bimini Sands resort is the most wonderful place. Very friendly staff, helpful, and happy faces. Always ready to not only help arrange things but also to chat, and enjoy your company in a friendly way.

Francis at the restaurant Bimini twist was amazing. He produced fabulous sushi that was imaginative and tasty. But on top of that he was a great character, friendly, fun and a great guy to have making your food. Everyone should try the sushi and chat with francis about life and the world.

The beaches and accommodation are just superb. Beautifully clean, right on the incredible pristine beaches with warm azure seas. An absolute paradise, romantic, not crowded or over commercialised.

This was a dream come true, made even more perfect by the people that run the place. Especially Nichelle who was always helpful and friendly,  the perfect person to have running the place and enjoy a chat, a joke and pass the time of day, making you feel welcome and relaxed.

If you like laid-back then Bimini Sands is perfect. This is a place to fall in love or take your wife and remember how much you love her again.

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

Bimini Sands is the jewel of the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. The beach is just amazing with its turquoise water. I stayed at an oceanview room which was literally a few steps to the beach from your patio. I think i had my sliding doors open the whole time I was there to listen to the soothing sound of the wave. The staff at Bimini Sands are friendly. I just like the thought about how you go around the whole island in golf carts. The resort also has a great restaurant, i never thought I'd enjoy eating sushi in the Bahamas. They have a sushi bar every Tues, Thur and Sat. Make sure you have dinner at Bimini Twist which is an oceanfront restaurant at the beach club. Mackey's bar also has great food. Be sure to try their famous Mackey's angus cheeseburger. There are a lot of things to do on that side of the island. Paddle board, kayak and a tour of the shark lab are a must. I definitely would go back there and dive with Neal Watson's Dive Bimini and swim in their new infinity pool which has a gorgeous view of the ocean.

Make sure to cross toNorth Bimini for the best conch salad on the island at Stuart Conch Salad bar. It's only a 2 min water taxi ride.

Room Tip: Stay at one of the oceanfront rooms to get the most amazing view of the sunset.

My wife and I and a couple of dear friends spent a week at Bimini Sands Resort last week. Everything about the stay was spectacular! Our two bedroom, three bath condo was right on the beach providing us with spectacular views and super sunsets.
The beach is very clean and the water is the most beautiful blue I have ever seen. The main restaurant has wonderful food as well as a very nice sushi bar. We tried both and were extremely pleased with our meals. The Petite Conch breakfast and lunch restaurant has great food also. Every staff member we met was efficient, polite and professional.
Grant & Katie who are the Activities directors are two delightful people who really know their stuff. They know all about the flora and fauna and creatures of the deep. They have built a nature trail with lots of informative placards along the way; very well done.
We took an inspiring boat trip with Neal Watson, Jr. and Neal Watson, Sr. and Grant to observe and swim with stingrays and even one shark. It was magnificent!
Everything about this place is a dream-come-true; I would highly recommend Bimini Sands to anyone.

First experience at the Bimini Sands.OMG...LOVED IT!!! Spent The News Year's holiday there and the New Year's eve party, it felt like I was in somebody's home. Great party, EXCELLENT FOOD. The Fireworks show was amazing.
The accommodations were fantastic. Love the atmosphere at the bar, The Square Grouper...I love this name.
Can't wait to go back. People were extremely friendly....specially the waitress at the Petit Conch..I think her name is Lechon (by the way..her husband is the sushi Chef..and a good one too..)
C'mon people...you must experience the Bimini Sands....It's Bimini with great service!!!!

We finally found it, the complete package! Great accommodations, great food, and tremendously friendly and competent service! All in a location to complement Bimini's natural and locational attributes. The staff at Bimini Sands, (check-in, dockmaster, store, marina, restaurant/bar, security, and bus drivers) from the first moment, til the last were friendly, courteous, competent and available. The dining at both the Petite Conch (get the PFC chicken!) and the Mackeys Sand Bar was considerably superior to other Bimini locations relative to food quality/taste, but almost more importantly ....prompt, competent, friendly service!

Oh yeah, world class fireworks show New Year's Eve!

Room Tip: Your boat can be docked just steps away and within direct view of your room.

I was leary about trying the local seafood catch at first, but phew!!! What an excellent taste experience this was! I am telling you now, get the conch fritters also try the chicken wings..the wings were WAY better than any I have ever had from Fort Myers, Florida. Also, the drinks were reasonably priced ($3 a pop compared to the hotel we were staying at which charged $4). I had the Guinness foreign extra edition which got me a buzz after one and half brews (because I don't drink very often). Just hitch a ride on the short bus from Sands resort and you are good to go! I am happy to say that my wife and I experienced a beach all to our own behind the sands resort during the day and went to Mackey's Sand Bar in the evening to relax after swimming. My only disappointment was that the fine dining part of the restaurant was closed, that would have been nice to experience. Staff is very friendly!

Room Tip: They except credit cards here!
