“Food is good”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

I can't say about the rooms as we rented a holiday house on the island but the food is good. In my opinion the food is way better than Nippers. We ate at both and can say Nippers was boring - burgers and hotdog type fare. Although Nippers also had some of that they offered more Caribbean type fare such as coconut crumbed grouper or Caribbean fajita. We were astounded that both do not seem to offer cocktails! As for vibe, Nippers is vibrantly painted and on a beach with some rough waves at times, we were unable to snorkel there. Grabbers is on a quiet bay.

Grabbers is an experience! Good local food like conch & fish & wonderful atmosphere. You are sitting almost in the sand on Fisher's Bay on Great Guana Cay, Bahamas. Friendly staff & fun local bands on some nights. Was there last evening & an entire Junkanoo troupe entertained us around the pool- costumes, clanking cowbells & even tubas!

Great place for a drink, lunch or sunset. This isn't a place you would want to stay. Rooms are dark with one small lamp. Rooms were filthy and bathrooms were disgusting. Camping would have been better.

Grabbers is in a beautiful location to watch sunsets. It also has really good seafood, service and drinks.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but came here three times for food and drinks. They often play local rake n scrape music, so it feels like the Bahamas. The seafood was fresh - I had conch salad twice, and grilled grouper on the third night, and they were all fabulous.

The mosquitos were pretty bad, but the bartender loaned us bug spray the first night.

We traveled to Great Guana Cay to inspect a house (Dreamkeeper) on which we had a contract to purchase. Grabbers was the only place available for Thanksgiving night so we booked there.The bar and resturant are very good and met some interesting locals. The local lobster and drinks were excellent.The room they booked us in was the most expensive unit which was overpriced and severely need updating including new mattress and complete bathroom refurbishment. The TV was not working but heard that the cable was not working for two days, something common on Guana Cay.

Grabbers is a great place to go drink, swim, eat and have a good time. The rooms are a completely different story. The bathroom smelled and the floors always felt wet. The bed was clean and very comfortable. We had plenty of clean towels which was good because they were not replaced the next day. The condition of the pool water was cloudy and needed cleaning. To be fair, the pool is usually nicer, but the skimmer was broken so the water wasn't being filtered and cleaned. They were working on it when we left. This review is just for the hotel room. The bar service is good and the location is great. The price is cheap for the Bahamas, and now we know why. There aren't many hotels to choose from. A cottage may be a better choice, but wouldn't have the same view. I guess you have to pick your poison.

Room Tip: I don't know if there are any as we stayed in the new section. My son and his wife were on the...

Hey Toby&Jim,

We take great pride in keeping our rooms in tip-top-shape and are sorry to hear that was not the experience during your visit. The pool has definitely been fixed and you'll be happy to see sparkly, clean water should you choose to visit us again and we've made a special note about the bathrooms and floors to try and meet your needs, as well as the needs of our other guests, better in the future.

We hope you'll give us another try in the future!

OK, I admit that I had higher expectations, but this place - for the money- is not worth it. The loaction is just OK- nothing special- especially when you check out the other cays near MarshHarbour. The staff- nothing special and the rooms were dumpy. Lights that didn't work, curtains torn, poorly maintained . The restaurant was just OK. The catch of the day is the same every day. All in all- I wouldn't go back. This place would have potential, if someone came in and put some money into it. If you want a place for a beer- and a nice sunset-OK- this works.
But there are plenty of better places for the money nearby.
but not on Guana Cay

Room Tip: at a minimum- get a room on the 2nd floor

Hey SouthlakeDD,

We're sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations on your recent visit. We love our location on Great Guana Cay and have found that the relaxing atmosphere, close proximity to the water ferry, and (if we do say so ourselves) some of the best sunsets around usually pleases almost everyone. We are always making updates to our hotel rooms and always want our guests to be comfortable, so we'll definitely think about the curtains in any upcoming changes.

In regards to the food - he catch of the day is sometimes the same for a few days because it just happens to be what was caught on those particular days and sometimes what the chef is in the mood to prepare. We have lots of other fresh seafood options on the menu though, so we hope the variety there keeps things interesting.

We hope you'll give us a try sometime again in the future and that we're better able to meet your expectations. Thank you for the feedback - we love to hear from our guests so we can better serve you next time!
