If you want an authentic Bahamian experience, this is the place for you. We stayed at Tingum Village and had a wonderful time. The staff was so friendly and personable. We enjoyed getting to know the legendary Ma Ruby and her family. Our room was very quiet and cozy. It was also amazingly clean. We returned from the beach and tracked sand throughout the room. Everyday the cleaning staff made sure our room was fresh and our floors were clean. The only problem we encountered was with the water. The water pressure is low and one night we didn't have any water. I think this sort of thing tends to be a problem in the Bahamas where fresh water is scarce. I still had a great time and loved the laidback attitude. I recommend it for people who don't want a cookie cutter experience. If you want to experience the local flavor of Harbour Island, I suggest you stay with Ma Ruby.
