This is a truly beautiful island, Elbow Cay...but the lodge is old, no TV, no cell service and very expensive food. There are primarily boaters in this fabulous vacation spot, but on land, the place is swarming with mosquitos. The beaches are wonderful including a friendly dolphin, but there are few luxuries on land. It is a pet friendly place, in fact the manager has two dogs which he lets bark in the evening. The biggest secret is the amount of prejudice on the cays. Man-o-War Cay does not allow non-white residents. That is as blunt as I can make it. I am not kidding, they are living in the 1700s in this part of the Bahamas. You won't find this information in any of the advertising or tourist information.

We look forward to meeting you. ... more less
