My husband met me in the Bahamas and we decided to take a little getaway to Great Exuma.
Before the weekend even started, we had terrific customer service. Nancy, the owner, called and emailed days before telling us about the weather conditions and how things might be closed for our stay-- I appreciated her honesty ( bad weather from Hurricane Otto) and we decided to continue to Exuma even though things might be closed.
When we arrived we were MORE than happy with our decision to stay at Regatta Point. Nancy met us at 7am ( try and get into a room at that time with any larger hotel).Nancy even bought us a jug of water from the grocery in case we were thirsty before the grocery opened.
Our room was a very spacious one bedroom, with a living room, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen. The whole apartment was decorated in whitewashed wood with two balconies overlooking Stocking Island. Regatta Point itself is located on a tiny little peninsula of Kidd Cove, so you feel as if you have your own little island retreat in the heart of George Town. Although the water was rough, we saw a fisherman catch a baby shark right on the dock, and the many rocks surrounding the property would be an excellent venture for snorkeling.
George Town is about a 5 minute walk away and the water taxi to Chat n Chill is about a 2 minute walk away. You really couldn't pick a better location. If you rent a car, George Town is almost in the middle of Great and Little Exuma, so you are in an excellent position to explore both islands.
Regatta Point has no TV or internet (that I know of-- didn't bring my laptop)-- but that's the point of an island getaway. I enjoyed the serenity of the place and really enjoyed the security of Betsy, the guard dog ( a very friendly looking golden retriever). Do yourself a favor and skip Sandals-- this is the REAL Exuma!
